When making the reservation, hotel said they would call for a taxi and it would be a priority call. Flight arrived just after midnight and we waited for a taxi at the curb for more than 40 minutes (in 1 degree F weather) after we called the hotel. Cab drivers didn't seem to know which hotel called and took whoever... More

We stayed for 2 weeks. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The staff were all pleasant and very helpful. The weekday breakfast cook varied the standard fare at times and kept everything in supply. We'll definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone.

I was 15 minutes late for breakfast the first morning and when I got there, they had... More

This was our first time staying at a Best Western Hotel because our regular hotel was booked. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I was disappointed that the tv did not offer movies on demand.

This was my first trip to Alaska and I didn't want any surprises, so I chose a familiar brand, with which I am a loyalty club member, Best Western. Their quality, service and amenities are reliable, and my experience with this property was just that. It is a ways from downtown but I discovered the bus service within a 5-mile... More

Booked for 7 nights for a winter excursion (Ice Carving Championship, Chena Hot Springs, Museums, etc.) and got to experience the 2015 Iditarod restart as well. Hotel was very clean and comfortable with a highly responsive staff. Close to airport and free transportation to and from was free (except fo tip to driver) and easy to schedule. I usually look...

Great central location with Walgreens and Fred Meyer right across the street and easy cab ride from most activities. I used this to start and end a northern lights trip. It's very modern, clean, comfortable and upscale. Great breakfast and a friendly and very helpful staff. I'll be back.

I couldn't have designed a better room myself. The bed was soft and the pillows were perfect, including a long back support pillow. The blankets and sheets were the white ones I love, because you can tell they are clean. It had very nice decor and the building materials used were higher quality (e.g. tiles, counters, moldings). It had an... More
