People were very nice. Restaurant and bar (same owners) was nosy and there weren't any parking places most of the time from 4 o'clock on. Location was great and view was super. They charged us an extra twenty dollars for frig and microwave which are listed as being in rooms. Will not go back. Breakfast was toast or ceral and coffee.
Well, I never stayed at the Reluctant but as I worked in Cordova during the Salmon season, I spent a few nights at the bar. The bartenders are friendly and if you get a chance ask them about their stories. Some of them are gypsies who travel all around Alaska and elsewhere, bartending and have some great tales.
The view from the deck overlooking the harbor is amazing. Especially when the sun goes down.. its like a sea of yellow stars littering the harbor.
After 35 years I returned to Cordova to revisit my childhood with my husband. The Reluctant Fisherman Inn helped with this visit. They were friendly and helpful and the food was great although a little spendie. The rooms were comfortable and reasonable as well. In fact I am coming back this May with the rest of my family.
Dirty. No service at times. No microwaves or fridges as promised. Overpriced. Good luck getting your room cleaned if you're staying more than one night. Food in restaurant was greasy and the wait was ridiculous.
