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

We stayed here three different times, on our two week vacation in Alaska. They picked us up at the airport, and the next day dropped us off at the car rental agency, which was great. This hotel is very busy with the train station being just down the street. They only had two clerks working the desk and the breakfast... More

the rooms are clean and well laid out. the hotel is a uphill walk to downtown but they do have a shuttle. the shuttle is busy and we ended up taking a taxi once but otherwise they were accommodation. Breakfast is regular hotel type. hotels are expensive in Alaska and this one is high too

It was clean and comfortable, however, we arrived late with no transportation of our own. There was nothing available to eat, the only delivery available would have taken 1 1/2 hours putting dinner at 1:30 in the morning. It would have been nice if some of the breakfast foods were available for purchase. Even an oatmeal would have been great.... More

This hotel was everything we expected. After reading the reviews we knew what were getting. The hotel is in a great location, near the train station (we walked with our luggage) and near town. The breakfast was good and room was nice. A bit of mold in the shower, but we had flip flops so not a problem. Our maid... More

This hotel was like a home base for our travels north and south of Anchorage. The shuttle was a bit slow at getting us from the airport and we were very tired from a day of travel. The front desk was most helpful at suggestions for dinner. We walked there, (uphill) but it was worth the walk. Breakfast was the... More
