Reviewed 5 January 2020

I flew into Anchorage then drove to Soldotna 2 weeks ago. Bad weather, bad time of year between Christmas and New Years. Icy roads and blowing snow for a 4 hour drive that should have taken 2.5. I just wanted a place to rest up for my apointment the next morning. First place I stoped (Aspen) coldn't find anyone to see if they had a room available. Next place down the road, almost next door was Anglers Inn. I was hesitant, that place used to be called Hoolagins (the name fit the clientel and employees) but what the heck it was cold, I was sick of driving. I parked and walked in, suprise, the interior looked nothing like it had under the old name, no one at the desk but there was a sign saying dial this number, I did and seconds later both the GM and Owner showed up to check me in, like it was a race or something. I got a basic room, I'm on the road a lot and just need a clean bed,bathroom and wifi. The room had an extra space heater but I didn't need it. Anglers Inn fit the bill. Room was clean, had a fride and microwave, I only used the fridge.. Attached restaurant "the Catch" has 2 dinner menu's the main one and one called "Comfort Food". I had chicken fried steak from the "Comfort Food" menu. I was tender, cut with a fork no need for the knife the brought with the food. My server was all smiles, after dinner I asked if they had anything sweet, I wanted sugar, she checked to see what was fresh, I choose the Apple Crisp and asked if it came with icecream ya it was cold outside but its icecream. She said "it could" so I ordered it. She smiled and said she would warm up the apple crisp then add icecream. Dinner was less than $35 including drink and tip. I was pleased. The hotel didn't have a lot of people, at least that was my impression but there were several tables of locals eating in the restaurant.
Next morning at 8AM I was the only person eating, I had eggs, bacon, french toast and OJ. I sat at the table quite a while using wifi and working on my presentation for later in the day. By 9AM the place was filling up and by 9:30 it looked liked they would need my table soon so I left. Locals seem to like eating at the Catch attached to the hotel. My food both dinner and breakfast was good.
I checked out of the hotel with no issues, they gave me a reciept as I left and emailed one to make my expence report easier when I got home. Vern the owner was there to check me out. So I delt with 2 servers, Eric the GM, Vern the owner. Next time I have to go to the Kenai Peninsila for work, I'll hopefully have time to make my reservation in advance and will defenenly stay at the Anglers Inn again.

Room tip: reserve in advance during summer fishing season, other times of the year I think you can just show up like I did
