I recently spent a week at the Alaska-Swiss on an extended business trip. The setting is quite pleasant, located in forested suburban Talkeetna. Moose often pass through the motel grounds so be careful when walking around. Also, lots of mosquitoes! It is only about a 5min walk into town along a nice forested trail where you’ll find all the shops, cafes, restaurants, and a general store. There are tons of great trails within the town as well is out into the hinterlands, great for walking, running, and skiing.
The rooms at the motel are on the small side. There is very little free space and you have to set up your computer on the bathroom counter. The free Wifi connection was a real bonus. The bed was super comfortable and I had great sleeps every night. There is no cable TV but they do supply a small TV/DVD player and you can rent DVDs just across the street. Oddly, all the rooms have these creepy little religious plaques above the doors.
The food in the restaurant was really good and they can arrange for packed lunches if you wish. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this motel and I would happily recommend it to other travelers. I found it to be very reasonably priced and I would definitely like to stay at this place again.
