No regrets. No significant noise or comfort issues. Nice staff. Resturant good. We chose this place based on price and location. Both are excellent. Found no major downsides or flaws. Close to everything we needed. We stayed for just one night but may stay at the end of the week the night before a flight out. There is some traffic... More

Best Western Golden Lion isn't far from the Anchorage airport, so it was nice to be able to get there quickly after flying all day. The taxi ride was less than $20. We stayed in a room with two beds; it wasn't huge, but the bed was comfortable and I slept well. I like my room to be dark in... More

Service was fabulous, young man was very helpful and friendly. Room was comfortable and spotless! Shower had great pressure. Not a fan of the scent of the TeaTree shampoo. Bed was comfy! Recommended. Wifi was fast, and I was able to print out my boarding passes from the hotel.

The Golden Lion Hotel is a very nice comfortable hotel but also slightly expensive.The rooms are very nice and the vanity in the bathroom is large enough for two peoples toiletries. They do not have a free breakfast but they do have a restaurant as well as a lounge. One great benefit for travelers taking home fish, is a very... More

This hotel was convenient to the airport, downtown and to other attractions. Several restaurants close at hand, some within a 10 minute walk. Breakfast not included but it was reasonably priced. There was a good reading chair, hooray, as well as a desk and sofa. Very comfortable. All the staff were not only friendly but very helpful. Made good suggestion... More

This Hotel was roomy, comfortable and clean. The bar was fun, the Restaurant is a little undependable as far as being open. Elevators are small but do fine. Stay on the back side if a little road noise bothers you.

This was booked as there were not many choices left when we organised the bookings only 3 weeks in advance. Everything was functional, coffee in foyer, taxi stand close by and close to the highway . Reception was very helpful. But we only had a car for one day so taxi was $15 to town and $20 to airport. There... More

Hi Folks, The Best Western at 36th and Seward is only 15 minutes from Anchorage airport. The rooms are clean and neat and they are flexible on check in times. There is a restaurant on the premises - the 36 Bistro. It has great pepper bacon - try it for breakfast, you'll like it. A shout out to one of... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights prior to heading to Fairbanks. I took this hotel based on comparable price and better than average reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotel is located about a 15 minutes taxi ride from the airport and 7 minutes to downtown. The taxi charged $17 from the airport to the hotel and on the next... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Experience is fine. I booked this hotel at the last minute. Made the booking so fast, like the next day, we are ready to depart for our trip to Alaska. I made a big mistake on my booking, cause of the flight schedule expected to arrive. I made my booking thru Expedia, since... More
