“Loved the cozy, friendly feel”
Reviewed 28 July 2007

We stayed in the back cabin, and my family loved it. Three nice beds (one is in a loft), a microwave, refrigerator and even a small tv (for videotapes) made it seem as if we were "roughing it" in luxury. The back room of the main building even has internet access and a nice reading area for guests. Yes, you have to share bathrooms with other guests, but there are severall bathrooms, and they are clean. The food, as well as the staff, is also wonderful.

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Roadhouse, very comfortable and great breakfast & baked goods! However, try not to get room 5 upstairs next to the bathroom unless you want to hear everyone in the place "do their business" while you are in the room! Everything else was great!

  • Liked — clean & comfortable & good food
  • Disliked — staying next to the bathroom

This place was lovely. The room was basic but furnished cutely. The bathroom had a wonderful large tub with bubble bath to use. There was a common room which had books, couches and a fireplace which made it feel very homely. They also have a bakery attached which served yummy soup. All the staff there where very friendly and helpful.

Our family spent two days at Talkeetna Roadhouse in July and could not have been more delighted with the experience. The rooms were adorable...with wonderful period antiques. The place is renowned and exudes all of the charm of its long history as a climbers gathering spot and stop over for fantastic baked goods and home cooked breakfasts. It is definitely funky, so if funky, or a bit Bohemian is not to one's liking...it might not be the right fit. But for us the Roadhouse was sublime.

We wished the hotel staff could have been a tiny bit more personal and involved with guests staying there. We felt a bit unnoticed with everything else going on.

Talkeetna Roadhouse is, nonetheless, an Alaskan gem--not to be missed at least for a meal!!!

We stopped in for breakfast on our way to Denali and was advised by a lady in one of the nice souvenir shops to order a half-order for breakfast. Boy, was she right. The food was excellent and so plentiful for the money. I can't imagine anyone can actually finish a whole order of anything here. Breakfasts include juice and coffee. We ordered a cinnamon roll too since we heard they were so good. It's true! They have daily specials and on Sunday it was a raspberry and walnut hotcake. It filled the entire plate with lots of nuts and big, juicy berries cooked right in. The reindeer sausage and eggs were good too. Quaint setting with climbing memorabilia, maps and flags. Sitting family-style at tables for 8, allowed us to converse with some nice folks who were visiting from Anchorage. Warm and cozy, old place, fast, friendly service. We would definitely return to this town and this restaurant.

We spent a month traveling throughout Alaska and the Talkeetna roadhouse was the best value that we found at $60 per night for three. The inn was clean, comfortable and conveniently located in center of town (such as it is). Our room did not have an individual bath, but there seemed to be an adequate number of shared bathrooms that there was never a wait, nor was there a sense of overuse. We enjoyed talking to other guests in the lobby room, which also has a television with movies for children. It is unfortunate that Talkeetna is just beyond driving distance for day trips into Denali national park, because the Roadhouse is a far better deal than anything we were able to find there. The roadhouse has a bakery with great pastries. The breakfast (not included in the price) was good, but the portions were far too large (the "short stack" of pancakes was so large as to be unappetizing). Good coffee as well. Don't miss Talkeetna (and the flightseeing, which is a worthwhile splurge) and try to stay at the Roadhouse.

Stayed here two nights in June 2005. Rooms were small and cozy. Extra blankets and pillows available. Rooms upstairs were cute with a cabin look, rooms downstairs not so cute. Smell of bakery always in the air. Right in town, so easy access to all areas. Pizza parlor across the street very yummy. Breakfast at roadhouse was okay, nothing to write home about. Cinnamon rolls were good, a bit messy. Internet computer available downstairs to all guests. Bathroom access not always accomodating to my hubby, but he survived. Three rooms share one bath upstairs. Rooms and bath were clean. No maid service, fresh towels delivered each day.

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
