This is one of the worst places I have ever stayed. I do not usually place reviews but I felt it was necessary to share this shocking experience with others. Here are a few of the problems I encountered. 1. The sprinkler system on the ceiling made noise all night. 2. There were broken tiles on the bathroom floor. 3.... More

We were looking to trim some costs for our Alaska trip so we ended up booking this hotel. It's a downtown hotel with free parking. In hindsight, I wish we had just coughed up the extra bucks for another hotel. If you're looking for a place to rest your head, this hotel fits the bill. Yes, it's a budget hotel... More

Stayed here two weeks ago. Were given a room on the ground floor near the entrance. It was dirty, smelly and we couldn't open the curtains because there were people going past. The staff did move us but very reluctantly. Breakfast was all sugar.

Breakfast attendant stresses easily, is a bit offensive in her mannerism. Breakfast lacked any sort of protein except for the little found in yogurt. (Not a good situation for diabetics.) While our room was acceptable, friends of ours complained about their room shower being "icky." Front desk people were nice and helpful. Close to La Cabana, a very decent Mexican... More

We arrived in Anchorage at about 7 AM. The hotel free shuttle picked us up promptly, in spite of the hour, and we were able to check in to a room before 9 AM, way early of formal check in time. Likewise upon leaving, we checked out at the nominal time (11 AM), but our flight out was not until... More

I am writing this from the GuestHouse Inn right now. Overall while in theory the amenities you get are incredible for the price in comparison to other hotels in the class, I now see why the price is so cheap compared to them. (I paid $73 for 3 nights on Hotwire). My roommate got to the hotel before me at... More

Stayed at the Guest House on a recent trip to Alaska with my dad. The hotel and rooms well used but clean and comfortable, and the Internet is adequate and free. The continental breakfast is cereal, yogurt, waffles, coffee and juice. The hotel offers a 10% discount at a nearby cafe and Mexican restaurant. This hotel is not fancy, but... More

We were very pleased with the hotel. We were looking for a not so expensive hotel in anchorage and this is what we found. We were worried about what we would get but it was a great choice. There were 5 of us and we got a room with two queen beds and a sofa/couch. The room had microwave and... More

We paid $160 for a night in August. This is a pretty good deal by Anchorage standards, but this would be a $75 hotel in the lower 48. The check-in was a very positive experience, but things sorta dropped off from there. The breakfast experience was stressful with tourons climbing over each other for the waffles and sugary cereal.

I think you can judge a hotel by how clean the lobby is when you step in and this one was....ugh! The girl at the counter had a sloppy/dirty shirt on. For me, these set the tone. Our room was old and not so super clean. The price being about $200 wasn't worth it. I'd suggest getting a room in... More
