Spent one night here and the hotel room is average but the lodge and restaurant is great. I had salmon - many choices for preparation- which was excellent and portion large (couldn't finish it all!). Save room for dessert - salted caramel cookie is killer!!

Spacious room with a great view. The room has a king sized bed, desk area, and reading area which was a nice welcome after traveling all day. The lodge is beautiful with a hint of history and modern flare. I recommend for business, couples, and families.

The room was suitable for the area that it is located. Do not expect all of the amenities that the larger chains have in the bigger cities, but if you are in Ketchikan you do not need them anyway. The view is incredible and the staff was very accommodating for all of our needs. Dave a member of the catering...

Great view, and the staff was very pleasant. We wanted a long walk, and they gave us great directions so we wouldn't get lost. The view was beautiful from the lodge, and the inn is great! Too bad we were on a cruise!

Was here for the Southeast Environmental Conference 2016. Got to stay here and the conference was also here. The hotel was great and the view was top notch. I seriously enjoyed the restaurant on a daily basis. The only thing that kept me from rating this a 5 was the Tram wasn't always running. This is a great stay and...

Enjoyed our 3 night stay. Access elevator broken but they shuttled us everywhere we wanted to go including to the front door of the airport, which involves a ferry ride. Great tie in with the fishing guide who took us out as just a couple. Owned and staffed by the natives. Great views of the town and harbor.

I've stayed at Cape Fox several times and it's very nice. Don't expect the cable car to work and management doesn't have plans to fix it. Aside from that the rooms are clean, the food good and the staff friendly. The location perfect.

The lodge sits up on the hill overlooking downtown Ketchikan and the Tongass Narrows. The view is great, and the location is away from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ship passengers, who start hitting the streets about 8 a.m. The restaurant is fine for breakfast, but vegetarians will find it a challenge for lunch or dinner. The lodge...
