The hotel was clean, friendly and comfortable. Perfect for a late night flight into Anchorage (although no shuttle from airport). No complaints, but nothing noteworthy to remark about either. There is a restaurant in the hotel itself, but we didn't use. McDonalds a short distance down the road (not a fan of McDonalds, but they do make a good cup... More

After a 14 1/2 hr trip from GA to Alaska, we were beat. This hotel is very convenient to the Anchorage Airport & shopping, and provided a comfortable room that was clean & quiet. The attached restaurant served great food at very reasonable prices. They also offered a "packed to go lunch" that we took advantage of...too much food to... More

Let's face it, this hotel is a little off the beaten path ... and a little dated. But really, it's an economy hotel. I stayed here because it was within a few miles of where I was working. In spite of that, this is a great little hotel ... the rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious, the area is relatively... More

This was our third stay at this Hotel in Anchorage. The staff is great, beds are comfy and even though it might be time for a small renovation, this is still our favorite place in Anchorage. They have a nice restaurant, (we only ate breakfast) and they even provided a carafe to take coffee to our room. We definitely plan... More

Not the most updated hotel but certainly well kept and great for the area. Walkable to McDonalds, Moose's Tooth (see other review) and other restaurants. Staff very friendly and accommodating. The girls at the front desk were so nice! Rooms clean and parking ample.

The hotel is in a great location, 15 mins drive from the airport and other attractions. The hotel is pretty clean and well kept. Breakfast is not included in the cost, that is the only downside. But still worth the stay.

The location is good for heading to Seward or the airport but it is outside of the downtown area that includes museums and shopping. The rooms included a microwave and mini refrigerator as well as blackout curtains and very comfortable beds. The lobby is currently being remodeled. Breakfast was not included in the room price but there is a restaurant... More
