The Cape Fox continues to be a special place and a wonderful gateway to Alaska. It has a warm feel to it, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, outstanding views and the best ride in town to take you up the hill, for free when you are a guest (on the funicular). If you don't know what a funicular is, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funicular. In this case, it is a single car, not a dual system, with a counterweight moving up and down as the car moves opposite, up or down.

I have been staying at the Cape Fox for years. The only thing I can say is that some of the facility is starting to look well used ... scratched wood and walls. But overall it still deserves an excellent rating.

Restaurant is good, slightly expensive. I prefer to go into town for dinner. But the view is to fantastic! So if you want ambiance ... eat at the restaurant.

And of course if you're having a meeting next door at the convention center ... what a perfect place to be.

The Cape Fox will always be my #1 preference for lodging in Ketchikan (unless I'm doing something out near the ferry dock, in which case I'll stay at the Best Western).

A comfortable and quiet place to retreat for anyone wanting to enjoy downtown Ketchikan during the tourism off season. The third floor suite offers amazing views of Creek Street, downtown Ketchikan and the Tongass Narrows

Room Tip: Stay in one of the two suites!

Their beds are extremely short. If you are over 5'5'', your feet will hang over the bed. Shuttles are free and they drop you off where ever you wish and they are suppose to leave every 30 minutes, :20 and :50 after the hour. Except for us, while we waited for a ride for a full hour. Didn't have much time in Ketchikan and a hour was wasted because of lack of communication between driver and the front desk. Food at Cape Fox Lodge, or at least the breakfast, splendid. The host are quiet young and they extremely lack respect for customers. The waiters work hard, but cooks got wrong order and had to wait an extra 30 minutes. overall stay- pleasant.

Room Tip: If you are from Alaska and seen it all, pick mountain side view, $10 to see the ocean that you see every day isn't worth it. If you are from the lower 48, the mountain side isn't much to look at and if you plan on staying in your room during the day, the view is worth it.

Cape Fox is a nice hotel in downtown ketchikan. Pretty quiet during the off (tourist) season. Basic room, sporatic wifi, good food. Either view the snow covered mountain or the waterfront. The tram is usually operating but I have been there when it is not. Take 'married man's stairs' downthe hill to the river and into town.
The river is great when salmon are running.

Our stay in Ketchikan was for two nights. At first the reviews I read on trip advisor had me a little nervous. But after my arrival I realized that this is a wonderful place to stay. The beds are awesome the view is spectacular and the location is convenient using the tram right down to Creek Street. All of the staff is very friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this lodge for your stay in Ketchikan.
