I've stayed at this place many times over the years, so it's finally time to write a review.. there are so many big chain hotels in Kenai, but if you want to stay at an Alaskan place- go here! This place screams Alaska! From the taxidermy all over the place, to a rustic charming old place, to the noisy bar where locals hang out, this place is Alaska- so stay here if you actually want to stay at an Alaskan place- not just some other big chain hotel that is the same in Indianapolis, or Miami. Just stay here if you are in for some Alaska.

After spending the summer in Alaska, we were flying out of Kenai the next morning and spent the night at the Uptown Motel. All we needed was a clean, quiet room with a comfortable bed, free wi-fi and parking. That's what we got here. The best part is Louie's, the connected restaurant and bar. They have an extensive menu and very efficient wait staff. I've eaten there many times in the past 10 years, and breakfasts are my favorite. The place also seems to be a favorite hangout for old-time local political types. There is one large round table that seems to be reserved for only that group around breakfast time every day.

The best thing is the proximity to Louie's restaurant. Nice older hotel, small rooms but clean and free wifi and free parking. Charming with the walls decorated with historical objects, fish mounts and wildlife mounts.

The Uptown Motel isn't anything special and the rooms are fairly small, but it has Louie's Restaurant in the front and the Back Door Sports Bar in the back. It didn't show up in the database we use for booking travel at work, but I went out of my way to phone and make a reservation. Glad I did. Nice folks and awesome breakfasts.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the Back Door Bar.

Your average, run of the mill motel... lots of taxidermy and historical objects around the lobby and halls.

Looked like a fun local bar next door, but we didn't venture in!

Front desk lady was extremely nice, helpful and funny!

Bed was good - shower was great.

I'd stay there again if in the area.
