We actually booked into another hotel, but due to some problems there, moved our reservations to the Holiday Inn Express on Spenard. I am So glad we did. The location was close to rental car agencies, very close to the airport, and offered free shuttle service to both the rental car company and the hotel. From the moment we arrived... More

We stayed one night at this Holiday Inn Express. Nice room with a King size bed and a good workable desk. The internet was a bit slow but we adapted. The location makes for very easy travel from this hotel to the airport via the hotels shuttle. No issues of any kind and we very much enjoyed the breakfast. The... More

I have always wanted to drive to Alaska, and finally did so this month. I decided to stay three nights at the HI Express Anchorage. I had actually arrived a few hours early at around 10:30 AM. I asked Larissa at the desk if I could check in early. She wasn't sure if there was a room available that early,... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years and although it's OK, it's absolutely nothing special and on this visit there were a few things not-quite-right. On the plus sides: it's convenient for the airport with a shuttle bus, it's reasonably well equiped with gym and a small pool and fills the basic requirements you would expect of this... More

We used this hotel as our base in Alaska. Very nice accommodations, clean, quiet and conveniently located to the airport. Very easy to navigate around Anchorage from there. They allowed us to park our car there while we flew out to Brooks Lodge with no additional charge. The front desk personnel were efficient and friendly.

No complaints....for an overnight is perfect. Tons of food options with Wendy's next door and other restaurants on the other side of the hotel. Great breakfast included in the rate, with eggs, biscuits, pancakes, and turkey sausage. Easy and free shuttle service both ways. Free wi fi. Decent enough room - not fancy, but clean and dependable. Good stay!
