I stayed 5 nights in July of 2015. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I left for flights to sight see and fish most days. I enjoyed the deck with the headphones tuned to the Lake Hood float plane tower. You could hear the pilots request their take off and then watch them take off. It was very quiet and relaxing,... More

What a great pleasant stay in this very comfortable bed-and-breakfast. The Inn is beautifully decorated with "aircraft memorabilia", impeccably kept a well-run. Never met the owner, but that was fine. Room was ready. And very enjoyable taking advantage of the rooftop overlook watching the sea planes take off. . Breakfast was always available and ready for us included muffins, yogurt,... More

This was our second visit and again it was stellar. Amazing location for aviation fans and central for most activities. Not much to say other than Bill runs a brilliant establishment and would stay there every time we visit Anchorage. Love it!

The hotel was beautifully appointed and surprisingly quiet, being that it is adjacent to a major water airport. The restaurant was, however, extremely grossly overpriced. The food was good, but very expensive.

Lake hood in is located at the seaplane base in anchorage. The rooms are clean and tidy and all have full bathrooms. The two rooms at the front over look the lake and have headphones tuned into the tower frequency so you can listen in to the communication between the aircraft and the controllers

Lake Hood Inn is tucked away off Spenard Road next to beautiful Lake Hood in Anchorage. Away from the noise of the street, and with stunning view of sunsets and float plane activity on the lake, this small, intimate bed and breakfast is a true gem of a find! The rooms are spacious, clean, and the beds are wonderful! The... More

if you like aviation you will find this Inn to be incredible! It is aviation themed and we had a wonderful and enjoyable stay in room Bravo with a fantastic view of Lake Hood. The Inn is on the lakeside which is perfect for a walk around the lake and watching the seaplanes. Bill was a great host and we... More

Tucked in on the lake shore right behind the Millenium, this place rocks. Clean, great service, aviation themed. The rooms overlooking the lake are beautiful - the back rooms are fine too, but no views. Breakfast is self-serve (coffee, muffins, oatmeal, cereal, bananas, etc.). Full kitchen at your disposal if you want it. Wifi is fast. The place is walking... More

A hidden gem - not for luxury accommodation, but for position, views, excellent host, clean and comfortable room. We stayed in Bravo room - highly recommend. BOOK EARLY to avoid disappointment. Worth paying extra for the rooms with views. Located a short cab ride from the airport on the shores of Lake Spenard/Lake Hood. The only accommodation with absolute lake... More

We booked to stay at this Inn on the night before we left Alaska as it is very close to the airport. Our room was great, spacious and comfy. We particularly loved the balcony where you could sit and watch the floatplanes land and take off! There were also headsets that are connected to the airplane base, which were quite... More
