Seeing as how our group spent about $30 per person for our night here, we should have known what to expect. If you want a place to sleep, a place to shower, a restaurant to eat at in the morning (breakfast not included in price of room), and you're not very particular, then the Roadhouse will satisfy those requirements for a very good price.
However, if you don't want to sleep in a slightly dim and musty cabin with a tarp dangling over part of the ceiling, or use a restroom that smells kind of funky and has strange yellow goo (hopefully it was just shampoo) on the shower floor, then you'll want to pay more money and get lodgings elsewhere. The town itself is pretty neat - lots of little shops to wander through and the people, including those at the Roadhouse, are nice and friendly, but I wouldn't recommend the Roadhouse for lodging.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Roadhouse, built around 1917, is one of the oldest establishments still in operation on Main Street in "Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna." Our kitchen is open to the public and we've become famous for big breakfasts, hearty soups, homebaked breads and genuine frontier hospitality. Our bakery produces all sorts of treats each day such as pies, a variety of cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes, brownies, and savory pasties. The historic end-of-the-road town of Talkeetna is known today throughout the world as the base for international climbers making their way to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley), North America's tallest peak. Denali and the other peaks of the Alaska Range offer a magnificent backdrop for this picturesque town of around 800 people, located about two and a half hours north of Anchorage and halfway between Anchorage and Denali park entrance both by rail and road. The guest rooms range from private to hostel-style, rustic cabins to the school teacher's apartment located above the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum. Bathrooms are "down the hall" in typical Roadhouse fashion, and even though a bathroom has been added to Trapper John's Cabin, guests can still use its 5-Star outhouse! Breakfast is a separate charge but we provide our guests with coffee/cocoa/tea throughout their stay. ... more less
