Easy location with clean, quiet, and modern rooms with Wifi and TV. Really comfortable bed. I love the lodge rustic but modern feel and awesome views of the river. Friendly staff and check in. My personal favorite was private access (for guests only) to the river front for BBQ, lounge, or fishing. They have elevated fishing platforms and although I did not take my fishing gear (BTW: Not allowed in the rooms) around 9 PM in about 30 minutes time I watched a guy pull 4 large King Salmon from the river for catch-and-release. I do not know what bait he was using but wow they were jumping. Much better luck than the public platforms on the other side of the river. If you do not want to go deep in the wilderness but still have good fishing off the Kenai river I would recommend this place. Easy quick drive to the airport for bear viewing tours, across the river is a great diner (Caribou Family Restaurant), and down-the-street from Safeway great easy access location. My wife is strict about the place must be clean, with clean smelling towels and this passed her test. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Great private access to the river great fishing at 9 PM

Pros: the location is amazing - it’s right on the river, the staff is super kind and willing to help in any way they can, there’s a laundry facility, it’s right in town so there’s easy access to everything.

Cons: the bed sucked

2nd time visiting The Kenai River Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay. Very quaint rooms with lot's of room and a comfortable bed. My room looked as if it had been recently remodeled and the light in the bathroom was difficult to see by, but other than that, great room. I love the view of the river and the deck off of the restaurant is beautiful no matter what time of year.
