“Steyed there twice”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We stayed at the Aspen prior to our trip to Lake Clark and when we returned.We liked the place: large rooms, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and good location and very reasonable price for Alaska.. Only negative is the free breakfast - not up to Hampton Inn standard.
Did not use the indoor pool or hot tub.
Initially we made reservations at the King Salmon Best Western but for a week we could not get them to email us a confirmation so we changed to the Aspen and glad of it.

Room Tip: Second floor has less noise.

My wife and I spent one night at this hotel in July. It's clean and the staff are helpful. The rooms with king beds are all on one side of the building and the rooms with double beds are on the other side. Be aware that the rooms with king beds all face the parking lot and buildings in town. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, so if you leave the window open to cool the room down, you will hear traffic noise all night long. But the rooms with double beds all face the river and trees, and are quiet, and have fantastic views.

Room Tip: Rooms with king beds face the parking lot, have no views, and are hot in the summer. The rooms with...

We needed to overnight in Soldotna and stayed at the Aspen Hotel Soldotna. This is a very basic hotel/motel. Room was clean - again basic (but did have a kitchenette). There isn't AC in the rooms - so if it's warm/hot, you have to open the window. And, the hotel is on a somewhat major road (so if noise is an issue...). There were some odd characters hanging around the hotel and in the parking lot, but no incidents. It is right across the street from a grocery store and coffee shop. For the price (this might be a summer/AK thing), certainly not a great deal.

We'd originally planned to drive straight from Seward to Homer, but decided to break the trip with a night in Soldotna (as we couldn't get at extra night at Alaska Glacierview Cabin (review pending approval on this property - don't forget you can register previously un-reviewed gems with TA)). Efficient internet booking from home, and the reservation was quickly if perfunctorily found at check-in.

Room was clean, perfectly comfortable, and sufficiently spacious for 2 adults/1 teenager (two good queen beds). Good wi-fi internet connection.

Breakfast choice was rather limited, so we ended up heading across the road to McD's (yep, sadly, it was a better option).

It's not a particularly scenic location, but it's easy to find from the main highway, has closeby access to a Kenai River boardwalk, and also provides convenient access to the Kenai spur road if you want to explore the 'north road'.

We stayed in the family room with our two young children and it was perfect. The kids enjoyed the pool as well. At the end of our stay we were headed to homer for a few days before heading back to anchorage and the manager was very accommodating and let us keep our fish in the freezer those 2 extra days.

Been coming to Soldotna for 23 years to Salmon fish. For the longest time I rented a home until they sold the property so tried it here last year and returned again. I am in a hotel 320 nights per year every year. I know hotels. This is a 'holiday inn express' or 'Fairfield inn' style hotel. Convenience is the key here since they are centrally located. They have an indoor pool and Jacuzzi which is nice after hours spent fishing to relax your back. It is in the center of town so not much in terms of ambience or view...especially street facing rooms which have zero view.

Beds are on the soft side but rooms are very clean. Hotel is well kept. Breakfast is your standard carb fest. Flat screen tvs, laudry facility, business center...like I said a 'holiday inn express' in a town with no major chain hotels.

Like everything in AK...it's expensive. About 2 times what you would pay in most places. Long term rooms with cooking are $219 plus tax.

If you're here for the fishing than this is just fine. Safeway across the street and near Odie's (great sandwiches) and The Moose is Loose (can't miss bakery).

Room Tip: Don't face the street...no view

We didn't plan to stay here but our car broke down and got towed here. So we got a room. It's close to the Kenai River and the rooms are clean but have no A/C... now I know it's Alaska but paying $200 a night makes A/C a little guilty pleasure, alas denied. Good security and parking. Good lobby and wifi.
