Strange oversharing reception, ripped sheets old and thin, no mattress liner, dumpy furniture, bug bites, blood stain on pillow case complete with giant booger, goo stuck to the floor, frigerator completely foul. No air flow. No second means of egress. One good thing was the relatively well-done remodelled bathroom. Good luck getting sleep here. My room was in the back.... More

First.... The signs say no drinking, no alcohol, and that was soooo sketch. But it was awesome, the price, the room, the staff, the building. Stay away from chains, and stay here!!!!! The rooms have a personality of there own, and it almost feels European.

I am a musher, park ranger, and film producer living in the Denali area. I'm not very comfortable in hotels but Qupqugiaq made me feel right at home in the big city. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, quiet and original. Highly, highly recommended. Thanks Qupqugiaq I'll be back soon!

This place was frighteningly disgusting. I had to stay on top of the blankets. The curtains where stained flannel sheets. The bathroom was from a horror movie!!! There was a trailer parked outside our room that stunk so bad and it was where the manager was staying. Carpets stained, old and NASTY! The place smelled like a cross between BO... More

Stayed here two nights during my short business trip. If you're looking for cheap place to stay, this is it. By cheap I don't mean run down, dirty place. This inn is alright if you're solo or a couple. They have private rooms with bathroom s but the most affordable have shared bathroom. No problems with that though. The rooms... More

Terrible rooms, they smell awful. The guy at the reception tried helping out, they only had one room that was nice and looked renovated but then it turned out that was already booked. We tried opening the window for an hour in one of the smelly rooms but then we just had to leave or throw up. Of course, you... More

Recently i was treated to a special gift in my travels up here to Anchorage Alaska, and that gift was the "Qupqugiaq Inn", from the moment I walked in the dorr I was not only treated as a vip, but I also felt like I had "arrived" at home, and was treated as such. When is the last time you... More
