Just read a review that said $80 for 2 queen beds! we booked through bookings.com and paid $157! Be careful what you pay for your room in this sleazy motel folks, read the reviews to see what other people pay, the price range is huge. In my opinion $80 or less is what the price should be!

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that $80 is the rate for a room with one Queen Bed in the Winter (September 15th - May 14th). As with almost every hotel and motel in Anchorage our rates go up in the Summer (May 15th - September 14th) due to increased demand. Our standard rate for a room with... More

We booked through Hotwire because we expected a decent rate for a decent hotel. We paid $131 through Hotwire, but walk-up rates are $117. Room includes a breakfast served between 6:30-9:00 that consisted of coffee, eggs (scrambled and boiled), bread choice, hash browns, sausage, muffin, and orange. We got to the breakfast at 8:00 and there were only a few... More

The service was excellent. My room had a clean bed, nice kitchen, and a clean bathroom. It was a two minute drive from downtown Anchorage, and I liked how it had a free shuttle. The management told me about nice places to visit while I stayed there.

Terrible, very noisy. Rooms had mildew smell, burn holes in the bed spreads. Girl at check in had no idea how to operate the room phones. The traffic noise from roads and airport were horrible. Seemingly no insulation from that or from the guests upstairs. Not worth the price.

We got this hotel thru Hotel.com and were paying $60 more per night because of that! So my complaint is more with Hotel.com. over the price. We paid $200 (could have stayed at the Sheritan for that price), and the walk-in price was $139. Like the other reviews stated, the area across from the air field is a bit run... More

This isn't fancy, but it's got plenty of room, was clean, had a comfortable bed, was quiet and had a very helpful shuttle that did pickups at the airport or Egan center for those being dropped off or to a cruise in Seward. The location isn't in an ideal spot for walking around, but it didn't feel unsafe. The shuttle... More

Clean and cheap you get what you pay for. Lots of noise from customers not the management s fault they do try to keep it quiet. Bad location but friendly service. Clean rooms though and there are chairs for smoking outside.

Everything in the room smelt cigar smoke. Unclean bed and towels. Couldn't close window. Homeless people roaming in corridor. Microwave doesn't work. No water provided. Bathroom has broken unclean tub. All of this for $150?? I should have slept in my car and used a public bathroom.

My son and I booked here for our recent motorcycle trip around. The place and local area are very questionable. Sex toy shop in front of the hotel, a scuzzy trip club across the road, hookers in the parking lot, drug deals going on. People live at the hotel, some are truckers some are strippers from the strip club. We... More

The house keeping staff has been changed a couple of times since your visit, and the current staff is doing a much better job of keeping the rooms clean and tidy than the previous staff. We apologize for the sub-standard service you experienced. As for the other issues you raised - there is very little we can do about our... More

What a shame. We stayed on our first Friday night before our week long drive around AK and again for 2 nights before going to our cruise. I could get past the strip club across the street and the apparent drug deals, possible prostitution and some obvious long term homeless people who live there. The amenities were good for a... More

Like all Alaskan hotels/motels we too get hit with bed bugs from time to time. I'm sorry your stay happened to coincide with one such incident; but please be assured that as soon as we discover them, we immediately take steps to remove them. Our housekeeping staff keeps on hand various pads and powders to kill and/or drive off those... More
