This hotel is hundreds cheaper than others in the area. It's old... But it's clean and that's all that really matters. Would stay here again. Our rate was $85/night. The shower was hot and the beds had fresh sheets

I unfortunately tried staying here as it was the only room available for 1 night. Staff was very mundane, I was actually asked if I wanted to see the room before I took it.They give you 1 towel, 1 bar of soap and a roll of toilet paper. You have to share a community bathroom (if you dare), people outside... More

This hotel by far is the worst hotel I ever stayed at not only is some of the staff lazy and rude the rooms are not very clean. They claim to offer cable TV but only offer 2 channels which you have to fight to watch the shows you want to with the other guest. I will never advise anyone... More

okay so you now how when you go to a hotel the sheets usually are clean, new and matching? Well that's not how they do it at the Spenard. the sheets were floral, solid, mismatched and looked about 15 years old. That I was going to grin and bear. The ciggerate burns and rips in the comforter I was going... More

I made the error of looking for an affordable place to stay. I should have left when they told me I needed a $50 cash deposit to check in and had to prepay the room before getting a key. I was exhausted and needed sleep. Before even getting tro my room I was approached in the parking lot asking if... More

It's a very affordable place to spend a night, and there's nothing comparable near downtown Anchorage, but don't expect sparkling surroundings. My room was clean and bed comfortable and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. A nice Asian family operates this place (3 generations). The location is great (restaurants/ fast food) and there is the bus route right out... More

In the past, I wrote a pretty good review for the Spenard Motel. I'd stayed there several times and was always at least satisfied with the accomodations. Unfortunately, things have changed. On my last stay there, I was with my girlfriend, and for the first time, felt almost ashamed to have stayed there. She understood that it was the most... More

stayed here for one night only and stayed in a dorm, very small room with 6 bunks in it. it was a bit cramped but luckily the people were nice in the room and respectful of quiet time and others sleeping. the hostel looks to be on the market to be sold. that may be why it seems like decoration...

I apologize to anyone who has stayed here based on my previous review. What a difference a few years can make! It was always dilapidated, but at least it was clean. The minute I walked in, I was on the phone to find another place to stay. We were stuck for one night. They will not give you a refund... More
