“Comfortable and a great bargain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is my preferred hotel when traveling to Kenai on business. I had a nice room with a king size bed, a refigerator and microwave. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and Louie's Restaurant can't be beat!

Room Tip: Second floor will be a bit quieter than the first floor.

Stayed liked it, loved it, great restruant and lounge, friendly Great service...love the small town atmosphere....a must see in Kenia Alaska...so if happen to be there, go its the best place in town, the restaurant and lounge like a museum. They have one jacuzzis room if your a couple....get that one....keep in mind it's and older classic hotel but has plenty of character to make up for any short comings....

Don't let the unassuming exterior of the Uptown Motel dissuade you from staying here. It's a charming place with an interesting lobby filled with antiques and other Alaskan memorabilia. The rooms are clean, the service was good, and the location near the mouth of the Kenai river can't be beat. Other pluses include Louies restaurant which is attached to the main building, lots of TV channels, a comfortable bed, and free Wifi.

Room Tip: Definitely check out Louie's Steak & Seafood for breakfast.

Having traveled to kenai alaska on numerous occassions, I can emphatically say that the Uptown is without question the best value to be found on the Kenai. The restaurent and lounge add to it's reputation. The place is run very professional and the staff is great. Louie's restaurent is on par with The Crows Nest, Simon and Seaforts, and Club Paris in Anchorage. Highly recommend this establishment!

Not much to expect when in Kenai when it comes to hotels. The rooms are dated and you need to get one that is not next to the bar... they keep the door open and smoke from all of the smokers travels down the hall along with all of the noise. The restaurant is great to eat at for dinner and breakfast.
