This is a overall OK hotel that is close to the Anchorage hospitals. Rooms are aging excessively quick for how new it is. Carpets are getting worn out and stained, wooden furniture is getting chewed up in rooms. There are a lot of Alaska Natives that stay here because it is close to the Alaska Native Medical Center and I... More

Service was very kind and courteous. They greeted us with chocolate at check in. They stored our coolers of salmon in their freezer so could we fly with it home the following day. Our sons were ecstatic to see the fire area near the lobby. Everything was clean and pristine which is HUGE! Nice pool. Loved the bathrooms. We had... More

We travel often and have found that the Springhill Line of hotels by marriott is never a disappointment. We always have a clean room, clean bathrooms, and swimming pools. For our stay here we had a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains. We unfortunately were in town for a surgery but had a comfy recovery while staying here.... More

Out of town a bit in the industrial area not much to do. But, this hotel is stylish, clean, and very comfortable. A very refreshing change from the Hampton nightmare. Hotel staff were pleasant and courteous. Breakfast was good with lots to choose from. Beds were comfortable and showers perfect. *No temperature changes. There is a shuttle that will take... More

We have stayed at this hotel more than 30 nights in the past year. Without exception the staff is amazingly helpful & rooms well appointed (newer furnishings & very comfortable beds). We usually have 2 kids in tow who love to use the nice sized pool & I love the convenience of a great breakfast daily included. My favorite place... More

Booked this hotel because of it's very close proximity to Providence hospital. The beds were comfortable, the staff was extremely friendly, and it was clean. The breakfast was very good and offered numerous choices. The hospital is less than a half a mile away, as is the University of Anchorage. We arrived late in the evening and had no idea... More

We booked for a getaway with our Grandchildren. There were so many people in the lobby having a potluck we had no room to relax there. The pool had over 25 adults and children init and the hot tub was out of order. The rough housing presented a danger for our little ones and the front desk could do nothing... More

Great hotel, a little far from downtown but there is a free shuttle. We only stayed here for a few hours before catching an early flight, and they made us breakfast to go (it was 3 or 4am). Would stay here again!

I was traveling to Anchorage each week for a few months and so I got to test out different hotels. Springhill Suites University Lake became one of my favorites. Large modern fresh rooms. Varied, free breakfast including fresh fruit and multiple forms of protein. A few different seating areas in the lobby and a great outdoor patio with fire. Service... More
