We arrived at Cape Fox Lodge at 9.00 in the morning on completion of an Un-cruise adventure cruise. We were able to get an early check-in which we really appreciated. Our room was huge with fabulous views over Ketchikan and the waterfront marred only by the oversized cruise ships which dwarf Ketchikan. We ate both lunch and dinner and both times the food was good, the staff were extremely friendly and the service was great. There is a wonderful display of Native history and art on the 1st floor which is well worth a look as are the totem poles outside the back entrance of the hotel. Don't miss a ride on the cable car - it is free for guests and is a 2 min ride down the hill to the town of Ketchikan. Ketchikan is a great little town but unfortunately the waterfront is dominated by tacky tourist shops but walk beyond and you will be rewarded by its history. Creek Street which used to be the haunt of prostitutes and criminals in the 1800s and early 1900s is an interesting collection of historical houses which have been renovated and now operate as galleries.
