The hotel is very welcoming with an authentic décor. If you take the time to really look there are some interesting artifacts that give you a nice feel for the history of the area. Our original room was a bit disappointing (very small, very warm and dirty shower) but a mention to the front desk and the manager took charge....

We stayed here the night before we float-planed out to out fishing lodge. It was quite nice and right next to the water. Very good restaurant and bar with live entertainment. The rooms were nice and the grounds were beautiful.

My bathroom had not been cleaned when I check in. When I shared that with the front desk they said they'd get someone up to do so, but never offered an apology or acceptance of "responsibility". That was the beginning of two nights of less than attentive or genuine customer service. The refrigerator cases in the lobby had been broken...

Location is perfect for town, you can walk or ride the tram right there. I would of given 5 stars but the tram was broken. Nice large rooms with good views. Restaurant for dinner had great food. Breakfast was good too just slow to order..they seemed short staffed at the time. Overall very good and id come back

Cape Fox Lodge has an interesting location overlooking the town. The restaurant serves good food but it was sometimes slow to come. There is a very nice walk to see some totem poles the lodge level. Taking the funicular down to the town puts you in an interesting tourist area. I liked it.

Nice hotel. Be sure to get water view room. Cable car not operational during our visit but enjoyed the hike up and down the creek trail to get into old town. Some confusion at front desk with shuttles and storage. Didn't seem to have great communication between staff members. Some visitors were taken over to airport by shuttle on ferry....

One of the highlights of my Alaskan journey is Cape Fox, love the hydraulic cable bringing u to the topmost part of the hotel. Everything seems surreal! Love the history of the place and the people too!

Mseemir, Thank you for visiting the lodge and giving a kind review. Our funicular is a favorite to many of our guest as well as the artifacts around the lobby and second floor. We are pleased to hear you had a wonderful time!

The Cape Fox Lodge has a beautiful location overlooking the harbor at Ketchikan and the hills of Gravina Island beyond. In fine weather the views are superb. It is a short steep walk down to the busy town but we understand that the tramway is now working again. The rooms are very spacious and well-appointed with large and comfortable beds....

Spent two nights at the Cape Fox before our departure to our fishing lodge that we visit every year. Same as last year, except they had our reservation this time, however, they weren't sure if I paid both nights or the fishing lodge paid for one night. The vernicular wasn't running and the shuttles were very busy. This is a...

I spent $250 (Five Star Price) for a Two Star Room. The hotel room was okay at best. But the bathroom tub didn't drain very well and hairs were frequently found. The tram to get up the cardiac hill to the lodge from the town center was broken down and has been down for two years, I was told. The...

Matt D Thank you for the review of our lodge. Our tram has been out of service for about 6 months and was originally custom designed in Russia 30 years ago. It is back in operation, you must have just missed it. Unfortunately when updating something like this it is very time consuming and the safety guidelines were our top...
