Horrible Beds!

No screens on the old windows and aweful mattresses made this stay less than pleasurable. None of us slept well due to the old dippy, noisy beds. Will not be returning.

One and only night at Hooligans Fishing Lodge.

They need new mattresses, they are worn out. The curtains are thin and the blinds were missing from the brackets. This is Alaska in the summer, you need blinds. The clerk took my driver's license at check in and never returned it.

5/5 Excellent

Re-done brand new everything! Very nice Alaskan Lodge

I was thrilled with my stay, great staff, waffles for breakfast and cute redone all new rooms... Very nice place, super cute! Great food next door in their bar.. Karaoke was fun & I loved the live music as well....

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet

Needs Updating

The staff was great, the rooms were clean and the price I got thru Expedia was great. That is the good news. The mattress and the TV in my room needed to be replaced. The property is old and well used. The ice machine in the lobby made noise all night long. The bar that is attached to the lodge attracts the young party crowd which does not bode well for those getting up early to go fishing.


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

sheets worn out , like threadbare. Was a smoking room and I don't smoke.. window to outside very dirty needed washing,, carpet needed some time on cleaning big dirty stains,,,yukky. I asked that the spot be cleaned and was told already did. needed time on vacuuming it. bathroom floor was sticky,,,like something spilled and not washed good. dust on the tv screen and the tables and night stand. coffee pot not cleaned several times. Saturday night very noisey ,,woke me up twice and so much noise like someone doing jumping . I concerned about that much roudieness being a dangerous place if roudey people were also smoking and probably drinking. Wash clothes large red/blue stains,,,yukky looking too.
