We stayed for one night. The owner is very hardworking; he checked us in and was also working the restaurant when we ate dinner. The rooms are small but clean. The area is very scenic with a nice view of the lake. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We were part of a group of 19 in Road Scholars who stayed here, and our group did not eat in the restaurant, but had meals in the structure on the lake, which was very nice. The meals were excellent - we had breakfasts and dinners there, and the cook was first class. The rooms were in the collection of...

Pretty setting with a view of the lake. First, a note of respect for The Innkeeper. He is a retired 30 + year veteran of the USMC. Hoorah! That being said - he runs the business like a marine officer. Very clean. There are no amenities or extra touches to the place. No continental breakfast or even a free cup...

OMG a double at this lodge consisted of two twin beds in a small cramped room. The beds were uncomfortable. IT was clean. The rooms were stuffy but if you opened a window you were greeted with an onslaught of smoke from the smoking stations between each room. DO NOT EAT the chili in the restaurant, stick with a burger...

We were driving thru and stopped for lunch. The fish and chips were cooked to perfection, not greasy at all. The burger was cook thru, but was still juicy and tasty. We did not stay at the lodge. It looked okay.

Moose Pass is about 20+ minutes north of Seward, on the road up to Anchorage. If you're interested in fishing, this could be a good location to stay at. The float planes out back on the lake are very scenic, and are entertaining to watch. If you're interested in checking out the area, it's a fine, but a little isolated....

We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and sharing your experience. We are glad you found the vicinity to be very scenic and the hotel to be good. We apologize for being short staffed as this is our slower end of the season. Please visit us again to unwind and enjoy some fishing.

Came to Alaska to find great hiking and biking adventures. With an outline of a plan that included a few Seward events we checked into the Trail Lake Lodge for 1 night. 5 nights later we are packing our bags. Our experience at the lodge was outstanding. The service could not have been better and the location was perfect for...

It's not the Carlton Ritz, but with its rustic charm, the room was large enough with both a queen size and a twin size bed. The shower was small and the sink around the corner in the room. I liked the painting/print on the wall. We liked it enough to stay a second night.

We were on our way to Seward but couldn't find accommodations so we drove to Moose Pass 1/2 hr away. Had to stay in the older motel but enjoyed sitting on the big front porch.
