The hotel is nice, contemporary, clean. Right next to Ship Creek, where you can watch people fish. They fish there at 2am, so it is pretty popular. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is good. BUT they habitually miss the mark with the lousy shuttle service. We waited at the airport and waited and called and waited. We took a... More

We stayed here between train trips. It was unbelievably close to the train depot. Easy walk. We knew it was close so that's why we picked it. But the hotel itself was very nice. Room was very comfortable. Lobby was nice. Ship Creek ran behind the hotel and dozens of locals were fishing that evening as silver salmon were running.... More

We recently took a trip on the Alaska Railroad. The Comfort Inn Ship Creek was a kind of base for us. We flew to Anchorage and stayed 2 nights then took the train to Seward for one night. After that we went back to Anchorage and the Comfort Inn. The hotel staff was wonderful. They allowed us to check our... More

We stayed here from August 23rd to August 25th. The reservation was made by Travel Planner Alaska Denali Tours. The pick up never came after 45 minutes wait, finally tok a cab and the hotel paid for that. Rooms are very comfortable with all amenities including iron. Breakfast is standard nothing fancy, starts at 5AM to accommodate early trips. Room... More

As this was my first trip to Alaska, and being told how friendly the people are, I arrived to check in and be greeted by a not so pleasant woman at the desk. As I had a late flight in, I put it down to her being tied so tried not to think anything of it. Unfortunately the service didn't... More

Our stay here didn't start out on the right foot. I called for the shuttle when we arrived at the airport and was told it would be half an hour as the driver was picking up cruise people at the train depot. It never came, so I called again. This time they said another 15 minutes. Nothing. I called again... More

The hotel itself is adequate- nice comfy bed and sheets and a hot breakfast are highlights. Location is great for railroad, and shuttle (free) is needed to do sightseeing in downtown anchorage. There is not a whole lot directly in the vicinity of the hotel, but there is a paved trail along ships creek that is nice for a stroll.

Hotel offers shuttle service to airport, train depot, and you can catch a free shuttle to downtown right next door at the Ulu Knife Factory store. Room was extremely comfortable, meaning large with 2 queens beds, micro wave, refrigerator, table and chairs. Staff was efficient and courteous letting us know that we could take their shuttle the next morning to... More

This was our third stay on our Alaskan trips and we used it as a central base during our travels, staying here on three separate occasions over a ten-day stretch. Its proximity to the train station was of paramount importance on all of our trips. The walk along Ship Creek is always pleasant. The staff is always helpful and this... More

During our recent trip to Alaska we stayed here and were so happy we did. To begin, the shuttle service was available even when we arrived after midnight and every other time we needed it (except one which I'll explain later). Our room was large and comfortable with two double beds and two comfortable arm chairs, a desk, TV, coffee... More
