My wife has been fighting cancer for a year and a half. We had to extend our stay for her treatment because of complications. I reserved a handicap room on a credit card because we were on medicaid and I wanted to lock in a place for my wife to stay. We were informed on the last day of her... More

Like their continental breakfast and chest freezer for fish catch. Accommodations are adequate for the price. Staff members, especially the owner, are courteous. Will stay there again in the future in 2015.

We had a medical emergency and had to return home to treat this problem. We called the hotel staff to tell them we could not keep our stay as planned. The staff lack any concern and had no compassion. No offer to refund a part of pre-paid purchase cost.

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.
