Absolutely the best place to stay. Rooms are very quaint, very clean and loaded with wonderful amenities We have returned many times and will continue to go back. The view is very pretty. Among all, the staff treats their guest like royalty. This is our go-to place to get away from home!!!

This hotel really surprised us. The room was very warm and attractively decorated. It was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the adjoining bath was spacious with a separate whirlpool tub. We loved it and will definitely return if we come back to this area! Also the staff was very friendly and helpful!

We stayed in one of the Superior Suites. It was clean, well appointed and nicely decorated in an "Alaskan Lodge" way. Rates were reasonable. The staff was cordial and helpful, giving us additional coffee as requested. There was a nice sitting area outside the unit which afforded a nice view of Lake Pepin (as did the large windows in the... More

The boyfriend and I spent an overnight. The room was very very nice. It was like being in a little log cabin. The view of the lake was spectacular. There is a lot to do for such a small town and the place to spend the night is at the Alaskan. We had spent a week here a couple of... More

We stayed two nights in one of the suites. The rooms were very spacious and very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the private deck and watching the eagles soar over the lake. There was some traffic noise during the night but not too bad.

We just left The Alaskan Lodge and our stay could not have been better. Check in was quick and easy. The gal working was super friendly and gave us some great tips on eating and finding something to drink on the holiday evening. Our suite overlooked Lake Pepin....all the rooms do! The room clean and very cozy. Definitely upgrade to... More

This is the first time we stayed at John Hall's Alaskan Lodge. It was a small, quaint motel/hotel with only about 10 rooms. It was a unique room that was cute and clean. Our room appeared to have been updated in recent years (carpeting, appliances, bathroom. My only issue was that the queen size bed was not very comfortable. The... More

We have stayed here twice, both times in a superior suite. We love the feel of the place and the location, which is directly across from Lake Pepin. Our friends joined us one night, and they stayed in a standard room. They were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. We will definitely stay here again.
