“GREAT LODGE, STAFF AND FOOD”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

I was brought to Ketchikan to lecture and curate about art from Nunavut. Great reception in the town of Ketchikan..lodge staff, museum staff and schools.
Loved the king crab at the lodge, the restaurant manager was very helpful making suggestions.
Fun location --- an elevator down a few floors to the town level.

I love the Front Desk workers they are so nice and helpful. Sandra Wiks, Verna Edenshaw and Tina. Clyde is the most wonderful cook and I had the best experience while staying at the Cape Fox. I strongly recomend people to stay there:)

We splashed out to stay here as it was our last couple of nights in Alaska and we had been staying in hostels/motels up till this point. Whilst the room was very spacious and comfortable, you are definitely paying for the location and therefore the view. The room was no bigger or more comfortable than several other places we stayed for half the price (and there was only a single comfy chair even though it was a double room?). If you have the time to stay in, relax and admire the view then it is definitely worth it but if you’re going to be out most of the time, I don’t think it’s worth the extra expense. The view was lovely and we enjoyed watching the cruise ships coming and going as the sun was setting. The tram up and down the hill was certainly a novelty and very handy to avoid the steep climb, it also worked the whole time we were there. The free shuttle to and from the ferry terminal/airport was also very handy and the comfortable lounge next to a roaring log fire was a nice touch.

This is a destination in itself. A dynamite view perched atop a high cliff overlooking the harbor with cruise ships and floatplanes coming and going. Crispy clean room with comfortable beds and quiet, quiet, quiet. A wonderful restaurant for dinner and breakast along with a cozy lounge area.

The staff is vert helpful. After having a bad experience the first night, due to bigfoot upstairs and a room that was too hot in the main building. we moved to an outside room on the third floor.The views are wonderful from both floors. We preferred the harbor view. The beds were new and cofortable as were the pillows. Beautiful hotel with all the museum like artifacts.
My husband and travel a lot and we find if you don't like something ask .They even gave us a late check out due to our flight leaving after 5 pm. We did have to talk to the manager for this.
I know what the guest mean about the smoke in the bar, but we asked to be moved into the dining room and that solved the problem.
Overall it was agreat experience for 8 nights.

Room Tip: We preferred to be out of the main lodge due to the heat. Our trip was end of Sept. not sure what su...

The smoking in the lounge and restaurant is terrible! It is difficult to believe that it is still allowed in this day and age. Especially in an otherwise nice establishment. That said, the hotel is in a great location with great views and access to the town.
