The lady at the front desk is rude and racist. When asked for a HDMI cable, she arrogantly replied "we don't give that and if you use our cable we will charge you" ending the statement by asking me if I was Indian, implying Indians are thieves.

Ordinary hotel, but totally renovated with new carpet and new paint and redone bright bathrooms. The bed are not new, but this place exceeded expectations for what we paid and the dull looking exterior. We ended up here when our reservation at a different place was lost. Worked out okay.

Free breakfast, free unsecured WiFi. Minimal in-room amenities. Property looks pre-fab but functional. OK for passing thru, but definitely not a destination. Had difficulty making reservations (phone only) but front desk attitude and service was OK.

Just got into valdez and ask if there were any rooms for my husband and both brothers to stay in over night. She charged $130 or more just for us to get there at 3:00 am and wake up and check out at 7:30 am. As we entered she was rude about us making noise due to how old we... More

If you want a clean room, that's what you'll get. They are trying to to update. It was freshly painted.However, their web-site is very misleading. That's what I get for not going on trip advisor. However, we didn't have many options as other hotels were booked. We stayed in Valdiz for one night. I don't think I would stay there... More

Need to look at the dates of the other reviews on this site when booking a hotel. Also remember you are in Alaska when looking for your lodging. Smell of fresh paint was still apparent in the room we stayed in - nothing that bothered us. Pleasant front desk staff

Clean rooms,new carpet and paint. They are still getting things finished up. We were rebooked here for our third night in Valdez. Our first two in the Best Western. Loved being by the bay, the Glacier is down town away from the water. Very large kitchen and dining area with great choices for our continental breakfast. No fridge or coffee... More

We were assured this was a pet free lodging as we made a last minute reservation due to a change in travel plans. There wasn't much choice on short notice in Valdez. We arrived to a dog in the lobby. The lobby and hallways were worn and dingy. We checked out the room which was small and needed upgrading, but... More
