“Great Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

I have stayed here in the winter before and it was always great. It is even better in the summer. Fishing is right out the front door on the Kenai River and it is very conveniently located close to stores and places to eat. The rooms have apparently recently been remodeled and are clean and nicely decorated and equipped. The price was fair and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Thanks and keep up the good job. I will keep coming back if you have rooms available.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

Stayed for 2 weeks. Nice room. Very noisy- right by the bridge. All night traffic. After 5 days we had a "talk" with the stuff- in 5 days they didn't ran the room 2x. They didn't even change the towels.. So we came back from fishing at 10 pm- mess. No clean towel, lobby closes at 9pm..lobby opened 9am-9pm- not after. Beautiful BBG and sitting area by the river - we loved it- had few nice meals there. BBQ fresh salmon. ;) I would recommend the place .

We fell in love with Soldotna while we were there.

A couple of great nights sleep while we stayed at the River Lodge. We had a great view of the river.

There was a bunch of high school kids running around causing a lot of noise late into the night. Even though we were told they were advised of quite hours.

The room was great, bed nice and comfy. Would stay here again anytime.

My wife and I shall return to this riverside accomodation where one can fish "right out the back door" and where shops and restaurants are within a short walking distance. We spent five nights at the Kenai River Lodge and had a very good experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Since we arrived without reservations, we had to change rooms, which was no problem. One had been recently upgraded and was very attractively decorated, the other was more basic. Each room had regrigerator, microwave, ironing board and iron, cable TV, coffee maker. There was a barbeque for our use. We could hear the traffic noise from the Sterling Highway when the window was open, when closed it was very quiet. The Kenai River view from the room was wonderful. The staff were especially helpful and friendly. We made several requests while there, and they all provided us with everything we needed. This, also, was the lowest priced accommodation of all those we considered.

Room Tip: some rooms recently renovated, but all rooms suitable.

Just happened upon the Kenai River Lodge and what a stroke of luck. The room was big, clean and decorated with that "up north-Alaskan" feel. The location was ideal if you wanted to fish or just watch the local fishermen. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Sometimes, its just those little things, like offering a cup of laundry soap when I mentioned I was going to do some loads (the laundry room was bright and clean). The price was more than reasonable, compared to other places we stayed during our two weeks in Alaska. I would highly recommended this lodge when staying in the area.

The room was clean and comfortable with lots of amenities (refrigerator, cable tv etc). They do not have air conditioning so the rooms can get warm during the day. The location can not be beat as it is right on the river. They have nets, cleaning station and boardwalks for those interested in fishing right there at the hotel. The price was a little more than what we would have liked, but you are paying for the great location. We will stay here again on our future trips to Soldotna.

You can tell that this Lodge has been here a long time and we found it quaint and comfortable. We actually extended our stay because the staff was so friendly and accomodating! We really liked that when we asked for something our needs were met or exceeded each time. Lovely, on-of-a-kind veiw of the Kenai River. We will be back.
