Talkeetna Roadhouse
Ranked #2 of 17 Talkeetna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2017

The Roadhouse has shared (very clean) bathrooms, funky rooms furnished with antiques, and the best linens we slept on while in Alaska! Breakfast is NOT TO BE MISSED; highly recommend the sourdough pancakes. Check out the posters and flags from Denali expeditions in the dining room and you know you've arrived. I know accommodations like this are not for everyone, but the Roadhouse was one of our high points while in Alaska. I was sorry we didn't spend two nights.

Room Tip: We were advised to take a room in the back, but we loved our room overlooking the street.

The Talkeetna Roadhouse was one of my favorite experiences in Alaska. I stayed in the dorm which was quiet, clean and well worth the price! The 'living room' was comfortable and felt like someone's home. The restaurant was extraordinary! Everyone sat at long tables 'family style' and before long you were friends with everyone around you! The food was Delicious (note the capital D...) and the bakery was amazing. Even though it was packed on Labor Day weekend, everyone was well taken care of. Quite a find and a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: The dorms are really fine. The cabins looked very cute.

Fun experience to sit family style and compare notes with other people about Alaska adventures. The bakery is awesome and a good way to get snacks for the road. The hot cakes are amazing and very hearty.

We stayed at the Roadhouse in June and I have been meaning to write a review for three months now. We are two middle-aged women who wanted the experience of staying in an historical roadhouse and this exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the 4 bunk, bunkroom renting the whole room to ourselves which was a very reasonable cost. We stored our luggage on the other two bunks. The owner Trish provided excellent customer service and we appreciated her picking us up at the train and then taking us a little ways out of town to catch our bus to Anchorage. All the staff were great and the food at the Roadhouse was fantastic. I would love to go back again to stay. Next time I will opt for an upstairs room as only three rooms share a bathroom versus downstairs which is open to the public. That being said, the bathroons were always clean downstairs and seldom had a wait, The Roadhouse is perfectly situated in town, common areas very cozy and homey. If you want a fun, authentic roadhouse experience , with reasonable prices for Alaska, this is the place to go.

While we didn't stay at the roadhouse we did visit, and the proprietor Trish was a huge help while we were in Talkeetna. She drove us all over the area. I'd give a 5 had we eaten there, but our schedule didn't allow. Thanks Trish!

We stayed in room 1 upstairs in the Roadhouse above the dining room. It was a comfortable room, and was nice and quiet. It felt just like staying in someone's own home. Breakfast was wonderful and the bakery food amazing. A great location to explore town. Staff very helpful as well

We stayed in the dry cabin for one night. It was an experience to get up and leave your cabin and go inside the Roadhouse to go the the bathroom and take a shower where the public can do the same. It was a new adventure for me. However you are in Alaska

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
