Aspen Hotel Soldotna
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Soldotna
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Ok, so you wouldn't think AC would be high on your list in Alaska. But if you want your room cool at night or more importantly during the day, not here. The room did have an oscillating fan that we propped in the open window which worked well for us. But if you expect to do this, we'd recommend not getting the first floor. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room and beds were comfortable.

We stayed for 5 nights and found the hotel to be quite comfortable. The desk staff were very friendly as was the housekeeping staff. We had a king bed suite with a kitchenette. The only negative about the room was that I thought the lightly could be better. It was dim even with all the lights on. Also there was no couch or easy chair to sit in. Just the desk chair or the chairs at the table in the kitchenette. The hotels location makes it very convenient to get to the McDonalds, Safeway, Arby's and other shops within walking distance to it. Out the back of the hotel is a very nice salmon walk where my husband was able to fish off of in the evening and I walked during the day. The views of the river from the walk were gorgeous. The views from our room not so good as we looked out at the parking lot but because we wanted a king bed, that's the side of the hotel where they were.

Room Tip: If you don't want a king room, ask for one that faces the river.

The manager and staff were so helpful and friendly that an average hotel became an above average hotel. I had 2 confirmation numbers. The manager (Danny DuBruin?)called all the other Aspen Inns to correct the double booking. He really put in the extra effort. The other staff around the hotel were also very cheerful and helpful. I loved walking on the boardwalk along the river, right outside the hotel. Convenient location to all our activities in Soldatna. We were there for a wedding. The Progress Days Parade and fair were a lot of fun.

Room Tip: King bed on street side, 2 doubles on river side

McDonalds and Starbucks are across the street as we wanted good coffee, oatmeal and eggs. King Salmon Best Western has great beds, $15 coupon per person for breakfast, good beds and internet. Best Western has good rates and about a mile farther down the road.

We stayed here because other accommodations were full. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The complimentary continental breakfast was below par with some of the worst coffee I ever tasted. The rooms that face the road get too hot with the window closed and are too noisy with the window open. Black-it blinds are inadequate.

Nevertheless, there's a table behind the building for cleaning fish and a river walk that is very pleasant.

This place is perfectly OK but nothing special.

Room Tip: Chose a room on the back side, away from the road.

We recently came back from an 18 day stay in Alaska and one of our stops was the Aspen Hotel in Soldotna, Alaska. We were leaving the next morning for a flight over to a remote place called Silver Salmon Lodge to go bear watching. The hotel was very nice for what we needed. It was very close to the few local restaurants in the small town and we got some fast food and came back to the hotel. The price was reasonable and it was clean. We would stay there again if we went back. What made it interesting was they were fighting a huge forest fire a few miles away on the Kenai Peninsula and there was smoke everywhere, it had gone on for several weeks and still was not totally under control. It was raining and we were lucky to be able to fly out the next morning.

Upon check-in we were greeted with awesome kindness and very informative of all amenities. Room was very clean, breakfast was good, and I loved every bit of our stay. Great place! I would definitely stay there when I return to Soldotna.
