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

I should start out saying how nice the hotel was in general. I got in from New York at 1am super jetlagged and it was really great to have attentive service as soon as I walked in the door. The room was a lot bigger than I expected. I was a bit disappointed to only be staying one night. Decor... More

Excellent value for money. Stayed three nights on the start of our three week holiday to Alaska. Room clean and comfortable bed. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast a bonus as was not expecting one to be provided

A super place to stay in Anchorage. Good rates, convenient to airport (free shuttle), city bus stop, several car rental agencies, Lake Hood, restaurants. The room was quiet, clean, large and equipped with floor fan which came in handy on warm days. We used it as our staging point for the each phase of our 2 weeks in Alaska, staying... More

I host trips to different fishing lodges in SW Alaska and have stayed at the Lakeshore Motor Inn since 2005. We stay there on our way to and from our primary destinations. I have not encountered one problem except for a noisy water pipe (?) in a first floor room. The staff has always been very welcoming and helpful. Now,... More

Great place to stay when traveling though Anchorage. Rooms are clean, comfortable and affordable. We use this hotel every time we are in Anchorage. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Plus an added bonus is its close proximity to both the international airport and the seaplane base. They offer free shuttles to both.
