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

Our family of four stayed here four nights between our trips to Seward and Denali. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment and it was nice to have room to spread out. In addition to the 2 bedrooms, we had a bathroom, large living room and full kitchen. The kitchen had plate and glasses, but no utensils or pans. This... More

We stayed for one night. The owner Linda and the manager, especially the manager, Deanne, are wonderful! Deanne changed and re-changed a number of bookings to get us a non-smoking room. Helped us throughout during our stay. Gave us names of restaurants to order food in. Called the bus company to arrange a transfer to Seward. She even helped me... More

We chose to stay here on our last night in South Central Alaska - we were flying out the next day and the option of a shuttle to the airport and the use of laundry facilities lured us in. We were not disappointed. Positives included: 1. easy reservation by a pleasant receptionist 2. easy check in 3. good rooms -... More
