There are very few places in Anchorage where there is an open mic and supportive new music environment. The Lofts Bar captures that. They are also so very warm and friendly, the food is simple but tasty, and very good value for food and wine. My 2 visits there have been excellent, and I hope their popularity grows.

We are a family and had to move out quickly. The price for the room at a monthly rate is excellent. I think there is one person writing a bad review with most of the pictures. The picture of their room messy is their fault. I have my associates degree in business management and think the owner has done an... More

This hotel was an amazing place to stay at. The staff was so sweet and understanding, the music café was absolutely amazing. The food and prices were perfect, and fit just right.

Our stay at the Lofts had a few glitches I think the management is working on. The price was definitely good. Our breakfast in the bar on the second floor was a great success.

The anchorage city limits music cafe had an open mic and blues jam nights which I attended and had a great time! The cafe has a professional sound system, and engineer,... More

I worked for Holland America and Princess cruises rail services from May to September. During that time I stayed at the Anchorage City Limit Lofts for that time. I was given a typical hotel room with 2 twin beds, a mini fridge, free cable tv, microwave, and many other things. The problem at first was that there were three people... More

We made reservations for 3 nights. At the time, their web site said it was a new hotel. In fact, it is a decades old Howard Johnson’s under new ownership. If anything was done to renovate the property, it is not evident. Room was filthy, smelled, carpet stained and wrinkled, old worn box springs, hall and room dark, window lock... More
