Three stars because it is nothing special, but this is Talkeetna, Alaska; we were not there to lounge in a hotel. Would definitely stay here again if we are back. Certainly not much to look at when you drive up, but the room was adequately roomy and clean with a good collection of informational materials on the desk and the...

Ok, Maybe not exactly a gem, but definitely worth a second look. You do have to check in at the bar which is probably the only thing I did not like about the place-only because I cannot handle smoke smell, but the owners and the staff are very friendly. The rooms do look deceiving on the outside, but once inside...

Like the town of Talkeetna itself, this motel was not too appealing at first glance! But once we got inside, it was wonderful. I liked Talkeetna Motel better that the fancier looking cabin-type places to stay because it had an enclosed entry hall that protected us and our room from the rain, and, with units on both sides of us,...

The outside of the motel doesn't look like much and you have to go in the bar to check in but the rooms are clean and the location is great. We stayed one night and needed a fold-away bed. The owner left it out in the hall until we were ready for it so we didn't have to manouver around...

This is a great place to stay in Talkeetna. It's just by the Ranger Station and a couple of blocks or 5 minutes walk from the bright lights and noise on Main street. It's handy for Talkeetna Air Taxi, Denali et al. the railway and for travels between Nome or Fairbanks and Anchorage. The Motel has been recently renovated to...

Was very pleased with our room. It looks like the place had been recently renovated. Clean rooms, great location. Just a short walk onto the main street of Talkeetna. The motel is not well marked as you have to go into a bar to check in and out. I would stay here again for sure. We have traveled all over...

We stayed the night on our way to Denali. This is a basic motel - good value for the $. It is clear the owner takes pride in her motel and it shows in her straight forward but friendly demeanor and the room itself - very clean and updated. The bathroom had basic fixtures but everything looked new. We had...

the worse thing about this motel is that one checks in at a bar right beside the very small motel...a very smokey bar! The motel was in process of renovation when we arrived and it was pretty scarey....we thought we had made a huge mistake by booking rooms here. However, the rooms were a great surprise....not ready when we arrived...

Stayed here for work- The women who runs it is very nice and hospitable but the rooms are pretty brutal. Something was running on the roof at night and the rooms was creaking. Don't know how else to descrive it- just creaking. I'm sitting on the bed right now and it could use a new mattress. Just came back from...

The room was really nice, the owners were very friendly, it is not a fancy motel but considering other places we stayed in Alaska - it is great for the price, we caould walk to the river and to town - nice location and not on the main street
