We stayed two nights at the Cape Fox Inn in July. It is a good choice and a great location. Very handy to the shopping area downtown on Creek Street. Easy to walk the downtown and/or walk to the totem park, cruise ship area, etc. There is a lift that goes from their location, which is up a hill, down to the town – free to hotel guests. The rooms are nice with frig and microwave and there is free internet. Showers were excellent and the rooms were clean. Crista the driver from the ferry was most informative and the front desk staff was very helpful. The restaurant serves excellent food. We were there for four meals (two dinners and two breakfasts) and all were very good.
The Inn also has a wonderful historic display throughout the lobby. It gives some very interesting local history with examples of marvelous native artifacts.
Some of their rooms face the water and the town below and some face the hills behind Inn. My advice would just be to be careful if you go for the hillside not to get a room in the back which is above the driveway as there can be comings and goings during the night as it is the main exit/entrance point and it is nice to have your windows open. It rains a lot in Ketchikan and there is no air conditioning.
Also, we had more luck contacting the lodge by using “contact us” on their website, as our e-mails to their e-mail address went unanswered. We recommend you use “contact us”.
