Staff here is wonderful and caring. We thought we were staying at an RV park, but come to find out none were open yet. Last minute choice we ended up where we had stayed before but this time with our dog. They took us in with no problems and even ensured that our dog would be comfortable. There are a lot of choices of places to stay in Soldotna, but I would try this one FIRST.

Great Location, With One Caveat

Reviewed By freelancesteve

Went to Soldatna for some touring and fishing. Liked the location of this lodge, right on the river and easy to find. The people are all Alaska nice and the service good. The only caveat: Avoid room 201! It's a two bedroom suite on the end of the building, next to the highway. Good grief was it noisy. It seemed like trucks were going through the living room and none seemed to have a muffler. So chose the Kenai River Lodge. Just don't chose room 201 Also, they have nice fish cleaning area, freezers for your catch and outside BBQ area.

This was a great place to stay as I only needed somewhere to sleep as I planned to be out all day & some of the night doing photography. Room was warm, clean and comfortable. Very quiet with very little road noise. Good selection of breakfast goods in the breakfast area for continental breakfast. Friendly, polite, helpful staff rounded out my 5 night stay. Thank you.

It was a very pleasant place to spend a couple of nights. We had a cabin, which furnished us with the essentials needed. It is quiet there. Our host Dave was very friendly and informative. He brought breakfast out to the cabin. If we are every lucky enough to travel back to Alaska, we will make a special drive to stay there again.

Wedding Venue

Reviewed By rachelminer

My husband and I got married here in June of this year after a year and a half of planning. We found it through a wedding fair (pre-Covid) and what enticed us about this venue was the “all inclusive” aspect. Having been in several weddings before, the allure of being able to have everything in one place and the inclusion of services provided was attractive. The venue itself is beautiful. It was very nice to have our friends and family in one place with the flexibility of being able to stay the night. Sitting down by the river on the metal dock brought us a wonderful sense of peace amid the chaos of putting the production of a wedding together. Our problem mainly lies with the wedding package. I would recommend to anyone renting this venue to get your wedding necessities elsewhere. I promise you, it will be far cheaper to rent tables, chairs, linens, and dinnerware from a rental service in Kenai or Soldotna. We paid $2500 for the above listed items (with set up and clean up services) which were not received with additional fees being quoted for moving items from the ceremony to the reception (approximately 500 feet) the day of. When we brought our concerns to the general manager it took over two months to get a response. I felt that over the year and a half leading up to our wedding we had build up a good rapport with him so I was surprised that It took so long to hear back. When we did receive the answer it was dismissive and defensive with a comment of “our expectations were too high”. This was incredibly disappointing. When you spend a decent sum of money on services in the expectation that they will be provided and some of the services are not, you expect some level of understanding. The view from the property is worth the price of the venue itself but we would highly recommend seeking outside resources and not relying on the venue for the additional wedding services. Especially if you are not looking to add stress on a day meant to be blissful.

Surprisingly sweet

Reviewed By Pihaley16

I had to find a place last minute and landed here at Alaska Angler's Inn. I was worried not knowing what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. It's not fancy, but it has what you need. Most importantly I thought the customer service made the visit. The rooms near highway will not work for light sleepers like me so they moved me to the back side and even helped me move my luggage over and gave me a fan to drown out noise. Vern and Lisa were very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. I saw a lot of fisherman coming and going or eating next door (breakfast was good) so seems the place to be. The lobby area is cozy and cute.
