Filthy, outdated, noisy neighbours, but this was not the worst. We were nearly eaten by the bed bugs, more agressive than Denali bears. I would not reccomend this hole even to my worst enemy. Next day we needed medical help.

This is the worst accommodation I have ever experienced. Filthy carpet, broken fridge, filthy lounge suite,and when it came to the sheets they were majorly stained. Arrived 12 midnight. Reception girl showed us 4 rooms. They all smelt and were filthy. She was very upset and arranged other accommodation for us.

OMG to the highest!!!! This hotel was absolutely a total dump and a waste of Alaskan property! WE arrived around 1a and as soon as we opened the door we were disappointed, looked around the rm, went to the front desk to ask questions and they were gone just that quick. Everything was rusted, outdated by 20 yrs and smelled... More

Don't even think about staying here. Sympathetic desk clerk, however. This is a dirty, squalid long-term residency hotel and should not be advertising as a tourist hotel. And to add insult to injury, it's not even that cheap at $89 a night. I've been traveling in Canada and Alaska for the past several weeks and have stayed at many lovely... More

This was, by far, the worst excuse for a hotel/motel I have EVER experienced! The rooms were shabby and dirty....it was terrible!!! I don't know how they are licensed. This was the first place we booked on our dream vacation in Alaska. And, needless to say, our perception of Alaska couldn't have started out on a worse note. Do not... More

We arrive to be told by the manager that "this is a safe place", which sent the alarm bells off....This place is full of..urm how to put this, "not nice people"...I really would not stay there, in fact we walked away. The room was horrible and I would not let my dog sleep here.

This place is a (--)!!! Dirty, smelly, absolutely disgusting, it looks like it has NEVER been cleaned. Don't be swayed by the photos, they are a lie. Our experience was just awful. They boast a "kitchenette," but there isn't a plate, a cup or glass, utensil or even a towel in that kitchenette; there is no hair dryer; there isn't... More

We arrived to find that this hotel is really a resident hotel for locals. It was very shabby and not clean. Beds booked were queens but when we arrived they did not have any available. Offered to give us a suite but when we went to the room it had not been cleaned. We ended up with a full bed... More

We live in Palmer. Lived in Bethel for 25+ years and often stayed in the Big City. Today, we will occasionally spend the night in Anchorage. Years ago, we often stayed at the Royal Suite because we knew the owners. After several years, we decided to try it again, and is now a dump. It is a poor reflection on... More
