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

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
