Like the saying is ~ It isn't gold! While I believe in the freedom of speech, I'll say a few things here to help my fellow travels and then I'll be writing a letter to the manager to fully explain our displeasure. When traveling always try to book full in advance so that you can get the accommodations at the... More

We spent two adequate nights at the Mountain Sky during a recent stay, and it was...adequate. Some comments by both previous reviewers and the management's rebuttals are spot on -- things like the boarded up basement windows do give it a dubious feel driving up, and yet anyone going needs to remember that they are not in Seattle, Anchorage, New...

We booked our reservation through Booking.com and were told that entitled us to an 'upgrade' for a jacuzzi room. While desired by some, not us! When I said, 'no, thank you,' the young man at the desk politely said he couldn't change it. The first floor room was very clean with a spacious bathroom (the spa tub is in the... More

We used the Alaska tour saver book Coupon and got two nights for the price of one, a great deal. It looks like this hotel is in the middle of updates, or I hope that is the case. Over all for the price it was clean and friendly.

We had no choice in hotels while in Valdez because we took a Globus tour. I understand that not all the places we travel to will have the best accommodations, and Alaska is probably more rugged than what I am accustomed to in terms of travel. If the rooms are clean and the staff is nice, I can deal with... More

Came into Valdez at the end of some major rains (about ten inches in 12 days) It was nice to have a clean room nicely appointed, warm and dry. Nothing spectacular, but with everything being so expensive in Valdez this isn't a bad choice.

It was a bit seedy looking when we arrived, but "don't judge a book by its' cover". Then, I opened the book! Smelly room in the "basement", single window on eye level with the parking lot, lovely view of a Dumpster. Forty-some degrees and rainy outside--NO HEAT! Maintenance was gone for day, and the desk clerk told me I'd have... More

Hello Sally Sue, I am sorry that our hotel was not up to your standards. Throughout the year, we try not to put anyone down on the basement level unless it is a last resort. I apologize an employee did not move mountains to at least get you a space heater. We are undergoing a major overhaul on all of... More

At first it seems a bit odd, then the feeling is replaced by curiosity and finally appreciated and thanks. Room meticulous level is not clear, every item and object seem invested in it thought. Both environmental and pragmatic. Kitchen is open and inviting, comfortable and easy. Meager price will wash alone, plus a little to get everything laundered and ironed... More

Everything promised was delivered. Room was clean and comfortable and had all the kit (hair dryers, iron, fridge and microwave) Initially a bit of room noise due to noisy neighbors but they stopped at 1000 hrs and everything was quiet and got a good night sleep. Paid $159 + Tax for a 2 x QS room. No breakfast included but... More

We stayed one night. The hotel is adequate. The only room they had was in the basement. The window was above ground but you could see the bugs crawling on the ground at eye level. (We had made reservations a month ahead but most rooms were given to the bus tours). The room was adequate, average cleanliness. The desk staff... More

Hello, I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations. The rooms in the basement are used as a last resort. We try to put bus drivers and tour guides there, if possible. The tour groups that do come in are usually people in their 60s-80s and their main level rooms are specifically requested. I also apologize for the front desk... More
