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.

This new hotel is only six minutes from the airport but it has a local great northern woods feel to it. The rooms are large, the facility is clean, and the staff is 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!

Stayed for 2 nights prior to cruise. Arrived after midnight in Anchorage. Short wait for hotel shuttle, quick check-in and we were comfortably in bed. Room was a good size, clean and staff was very friendly. Fast food and Village Inn were within walking distance. Hotel offers a bare bones free breakfast (enough to start your day).

This is a very good place to stay while in Anchorage, 2014 will be the 4th stay here. Breakfast is very good, rooms clean and modern, easy to find and quiet. Location is ideal for my purposes, close to airport and float plane base.
