Kenai River Lodge, Soldotna
Pictures can be deceiving...
The few pictures I was able to see of a single queen room were very deceiving. The room was extremely small and had a folding bed shoved in the corner of the already tiny room- next to an electrical panel for the hotel. We did not request the additional bed- it just looked like it was being stored in the room. The room was outdated and not very clean (dirty bathroom, stained sink and stained, squishy carpet). The room was the non-smoking room that we wanted, but there was a cigarette burn in the bedspread and the smoking spot outside the room also contributed to the room having a faint smoke smell. This hotel included the Wifi connection we needed for our business trip- yet the Wifi was out for half of the days we were there...the other half of our time there, the Wifi constantly would drop connection constantly. Our room was right next to the office, so the road noise detracted from the very nice river view. The staff was extremely nice and friendly.

Decent room with nice view of the river.
The hotel in general needs updating and repaired. It was difficult to close the bathroom door and just kind of rundown. No bathroom counter for toiletries is super inconvenient.

Hammer bridge.
The bridge near the hotel, has a loose plate that sounds like a sledge hammer hit it every time a car crosses a certain lane.
