Very clean and comfortable. Super friendly staff. It's in a low traffic area but every once in a while you will hear a plane. I stayed a week and it never bothered me. Bathroom is a little cramped, but I'm a big guy. Would definitely stay again.

I live in Washington and travel through Anchorage on my way to and from work in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, staying on average 2 to 3 nights per month in a hotel. For the past 7 years I had stayed at the same hotel, but thought I would try a different establishment this time traveling through. I am happy I did... More

Having stayed here many times on Spring and Fall rotations out of southwest lodges or a mischievous fishing trip somewhere, I must say this little venue 'fits the bill' perfectly. The gals up front are consistently accommodating with coffee and welcome chatter; the room is clean and quiet; the bed is warm and most comfortable. Staying here in logistically perfect... More

An older sign outside says "Lakeshore Motor Inn" -- which is a more fitting description of this establishment than "Lakeshore Inn and Suites." Yes it was clean and the staff was friendly, but our ground floor room faced a parking lot. There were only room darkening curtains so you either had no daylight or else you had the curtains open...

After getting screwed by Alaska Air, I needed somewhere to camp for an extra night. I don't typically stay in bargain hotels. I chose Lakeshore Inn and Suites because it was cheap and close to the airport. Check in was easy and the person checking me in was helpful. The decor in the room I had was a little dated,... More

Yes, this is reasonably priced motor inn or motel. It's a great choice for the night before a cruise transfer. Why would you pay upwards of $200 for a room with "amenities?" It is not a resort or chain hotel. Anchorage is a Frontier, it's not like Vancouver. It's a little countryish, but It is clean, good free wi-fi,and yes,... More

This IS just a motel, with none of the amenities one expects from a real hotel. No food service other than an aluminum coffee pot in the lobby with some cheap muffins and juice. Rooms face the parking lot which means first floor rooms come with a view of the front of someone's car. The WiFi is free but very... More

Have stayed here 3 times in 6 years. It is reasonably priced and close to airports which were both important to myself and two traveling/fishing companions. In years past, the property was certainly showing wear. However, I understand new owners have taken over recently and they've made some nice (and needed) improvements. Everything was clean, staff were friendly and helpful,... More

First of all, when we arrived, they did not find our booking (made through booking.com). After searching for it, it was there in their E-Mails but not in their system. Luckily they found it... or was it bad luck as the whole experience at the Lakeshore Inn was not that great. First of all a few good things about the... More

This Motel totally misrepresents itself. The picture on the on line booking site shows a nice albeit older room with a kitchen and room to move around. Upon arrival, our room reservation, which was to be a double turned out to be a single for FOUR people. They finally switched us to a double, which was a tiny little room... More

I"m so sorry you didn't have a good experience with us, the hotel is under new ownership as of Dec 2013 and we are committed to insuring every guest has quiet comfortable stay.
