We stayed in the Eagle River Motel while visiting our son and his wife and our 3 beautiful grandchildren. The suite was really nice it had a good size kitchen and living room. Location was close to a variety of local stores.

This hotel is extremely bad. The rooms are from 1960...if that late. The telephone & internet did not work. The windows had no screens. You could hear everything going on in the hotel. Very disappointed. We were so disappointed with this room, we left the night we checked in (and we had paid for a week!) I went back the... More

All of the pet friendly places in Anchorage were booked and this was our last hope. The gentleman behind the counter was nice although his choice of attire(wife beater with pj's) was questionable. The room was $100 plus a 7$ pet fee. It appears that they have upgraded the windows to the kind tha slide open, still no A/C, pretty... More

On the positive side, this hotel has free wifi and is cheaper than most Anchorage hotels. Other than that, our experience was not good. When we arrived, I had to wait several minutes for someone to appear at the front desk after ringing the bell twice. I could hear a TV playing around the corner of the front desk and... More

Small motel with fairly clean rooms. Rooms decors are simple with old bedsheets. We didn't stay in too much so it was all right. There was a stovetop and a small refrigerator so you can cook if you like. Front desk has pots and pans. Staff was friendly. I think the owners family works the front desk. Shopping area nearby....

I stayed here twice in the past few years when I was in between apartments. Both stays were for about a week. The rooms are very big, the kitchenette was convenient, and they allow pets (I have a cat). There was also a large freezer downstairs in the laundry room that I used for the time I stayed there. I...

It's a nice hotel, with all services you need: coin laundry, ice machine, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker in room, and also free wireless (that often stop to work and you have to ask the staff to restart). The staff is composed by a strange Chinese family, that lives in the reception office, they seem to be bothered any time... More

The motel is reasonable and clean but rundown. We found ourselves changing light bulbs and tightening screws everywhere. the rooms were so hot and wouldn't cool down (a ceiling fan would help) and then there is the constant sun light issue so you either try to sleep in day light with out privacy (windows and curtains open) or you shut...

My husband and I just returned from almost a 3-week trip to Alaska to visit their national parks. We stayed at the Eagle River Motel on two separate occasions in June. I chose this hotel after reading reviews and it was so much less expensive than the hotels in Anchorage. This is just a basic room and quiet enough. Bring... More
