Pros: We weren't able to book a room at Valdez so we worked our way back and were able to find space here. The price on-line was $89 and given the lack of June availability, we gladly booked. There's a restaurant and bar attached, which is handy and the food was decent but less than the glowing descriptions on the...

So this was a stop that we hadnt planned for, and needed a room to stay. When we called the place (from 2 miles away), the lady said she was open and theres a room. When we got there, she said you can book it online (since it'll be cheaper, and I dont have to do all the work for...

Copper center, not one of the famous spot in Alaska and certainly not on the route to some travelers. We make this place as our base to the biggest national park in Alaska ' Wrangell St-Elias National park'. We stayed for two nights here. We have the shuttle booked to the park. We didn't dare to drive with our car...

The owners are very nice people and the breakfast they served was good. The room was clean and nice. I would stay again. The owner sat and talked to us a breakfast and that was a very nice thing to do. Most owners of small places do not take the time to get to know their customers.

We spent one night here, clean, comfortable room and bed. The only thing remotely negative is that the shower curtain is just a bit too short, causing a bit of flooding. The restaurant was inviting and the food was good. Prices are in line with Alaska.

My experience was good. The room was large, clean and confortable. The restaurant was good. I'd reccomend it. It was exactly what i needed and the fare was absolutely resoneable. The bed was confortable and there was a large Tv screen if you need

A quiet night's rest after a nice dinner in the restaurant. Temporary rooms while inn is eing rebuilt from fire are okay. Didn't like waiting for breakfast until 8 am when the restaurant opened, but suited the other family members. Wonderful hosts make this a comfortable setting.

Tom and Kim are a hard working couple trying to rebuild after a fire a few years ago. Tom sat with us and talked to us like we were long time friends. The food was good. Accommodations were neat and clean. Bar and restaurant were excellent. It's not the Hilton, but this is rural Alaska, I wasn't expecting nor wanting...

Great supper in this neatly restored original place. Staff were attentive, friendly, and professional in a laid back atmosphere. Interesting menu. Everybody enjoyed their orders. Nice visit to an historically interesting place.

We stayed here for one night. The lodge burned 3 years ago and has not been re-built but the "temporary" rooms were quite nice. We thoroughly enjoyed the family of owners. The restaurant was closed the night we were there but they recommended another restaurant that was very good.

The new business currently has 4 new rooms with private baths & 3 rooms with shared, (that may be rented as a family unit)offered to travelers who wish to enjoy the majestic surroundings of the Wrangell Mountains and famous Copper and Klutina rivers located in their backyard.
