“Best cost-benefit in Talkeetna”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is the third time that I stayed in this charming hotel in Talkeetna, a small and pretty town. The owners of Swiss-Alaska are very nice people and treat you as family. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The price is fair and, comparing to other hotels in town, this is the best cost-benefit. It is located in a very quiet place, but close to downtown, just a 5 min. walk through the woods.

As part of a trip to Alaska, one of the hotels we stopped at was the 'Swiss Alaska Inn' our party was treat like royalty, nothing was to much trouble, rooms were spacious, very clean, views out of this world from your room of 'Mount McKinley', or as the locals call it 'Mount Denali'. The owner collected us and our bags from the rail station, and did the same on departure. We would maybe call the town a shanty Town, compared to our own city, but with every amenity that you could ask for. Talkeetna does have it's own brewery, so if you like a pint of beer now and again its worth trying these local ones, plenty of eating places, but remember that you are in America and the portions are large.The boat trip is worth doing, our friends did the plane ride over Mount McKinley, which on that particular day was completely clear of cloud, which is an unusual event.Should you be considering a trip to Alaska, Talkeetna is worth a visit.

We ate breakfast here after it was recommended by a local. We waited 45 minutes for our food to come ( 2 omelettes). There was only 2 people working here - the cook and the waitress, and it was the waitresses first day! I have no complaints about the food, once we finally got it. The omelettes were stuffed with cheese and meat/veggies. There was a pretty decent portion. Not bad and not spetacular. The bill came to $40 for to people for breakfast.....a little pricey for the service and quality.

I would suggest finding somewhere else to eat breakfast!

We had a great time at this place. The rooms were clean and the accommodations were great. The food at the attached restaurant was good as well. There is a nice trail in the back of the hotel that takes you into the center of town. Overall, the price wasn't as pricey as others have stated.

The accommodations were very comfortable and clean. The staff were incredibly friendly throughout our stay, and also helpful whenever we had questions. The inn is just a short walk from downtown so it was always very quiet, but had the convenience of being near all of the action. My husband and I are big into fishing so this was a dream considering it is right next to the river. We were able to get out on the water before anyone else.

Have to agree with the other recent reviews. I was shocked at how blah this place was, considering the price. Cheap furniture, run-down hallway, dank entrance.

It's also on the other side of the tracks from the town--there's a path through woods to get there, which was pretty muddy at the time.

The people were nice enough, however.

We spent two nights here while looking for a break in the weather to do a Denali flight. The room we had was simple and very small, but clean and adequately comfortable. I wouldn't stay here again because we have had much better lodging in Alaska for the same money. Skip breakfast in the restaurant. The prices are startling.
