Little hard to find with the road construction but just fools the road on back. We showed up at 1 am and left by 9, so all I can comment on is it was a beautiful place, wish we had time to ride the lift up and eat on top of the mountain. Watch for bears in the parking lot,... More

My cousin and I stayed in Alyeska Hostel for one night, and we really liked it. The caretaker, Jakki, was extremely helpful and sweet. She told us a lot about Girdwood and Alaska in general. The hostel is clean and comfortable. We stayed in the private loft. The beds were made up for us and were very comfortable. The bathrooms... More

A clean, comfortable and well appointed hostel. It was our first visit to such an establishment and we were pleasantly surprised. The mattress in the upper room was on the floor and the other beds were bunks. Pillows were wimpy. A dollar is charged for a towel. The common area was comfortable. More games or some cards would have been... More

We are loving this place. Every staff member is happy, attentive and will go out of their way for you - every staff member we spoke with was happy to share their knowledge and their own experiences - and all so very positive. The rooms are large and comfortable, with great mountain views. The breakfast is a good spread of... More

My wife and I spent that night here, and had a great time (Summer). We did one of the romance packages that included tram tickets and breakfast vouchers. The rooms were nice, and the food was good (albeit a little on the expensive side, but when it's the only place in town...). We did it as a stop over between... More

My first ever trip to Alaska, and what a fantastic hotel to be at. All the facilities around the resort was great, and well-maintained. Service was good. Breakfast was great, and dinner at Glacier Express was memorable. I ran around the woods one morning and it was so stunning. Oh, wifi was good here!

This is a lovely and beautifully maintained hotel, with all the conveniences of a resort. We only used it for a single night, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The staff(front desk, tram and Seven Glaciers) were all very accomodating and friendly. The rooms are lovely and beautifully clean.The public places in the hotel were very pleasant, with nice leather... More

Friendly, courteous staff, great amenities and location, comfortable and clean rooms with great view, and great food on site. Cookies, cocoa, and waters at turndown, and easy bike rentals near miles of trails made for excellent experience.

We stayed here for one night on our way down to Homer. We opted for a private room, which we entered by briefly going just inside a communal room. Quiet and served us well for the night. There is another private room upstairs. While we saw a few other occupants, most were out hiking in the gorgeous surrounding areas. The... More
