We stayed one night on our way from Fairbanks to Valdez. I think the season was coming to an end as there were few other guests and the hotel restaurant was only in use for breakfast. We had a very nice evening meal in the bar and a good chat with some of the locals. There were lots of stuffed animals around and interesting rusty machinery outside. The place had character. The cabin itself was somewhat basic and a bit too small for the small double and single beds in there. The bed linen and towels were also a bit too `rustic' and had seen better days. Overall though, a worthwhile stay.
