The Funny Moose fishing lodge had the worst lodging facilities that I have ever seen. Plywood boxes built on 3ft high cinder blocks. and filthy inside. There was mold in the shower all over the floor and walls, multiple blankets and sheets had stains and the smell was discusting. The owner of this lodge George conducts business over the internet and is very hard to deal with (His way or the Highway). Get everything in writing and pay close attention to the amount he charges your credit card as I overpaid by $500.00 and he has refused to refund the overpayment amount.
Jim who is assigned as the initial greeter is some guy. Treats you as if you are burdening to his day. My group had traveled all over Alaska prior to our arrival in Soldotna at the Funny Moose Lodge and we had a great time. As a result of the substandard lodging conditions at the Funny Moose lodge we chose alternative lodging in different B& B's in the Soldotna area and continued with our fishing plans and had a great time.
I would not recommend the Funny Moose Lodge to anyone as the owner should be arrested and in prison for his dishonest business practices. He has no integrity and the place should be condemed. The owner, George, lives in Texas and is in Alaska during the summer fishing season. I also want to note that after further research I have discovered that many people have made the same comments as I have so check with the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce prior to staying at this DUMP.
