“Nice hotel, a pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This hotel was truly a surprise and very great surprise at that. The hotel was a great price, the rooms were clean and everything felt nice. The rooms are huge and our room included dishes, a stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, kitchen sink and tons of counter space - it was basically like a furnished studio apartment.

Everything was very clean and the bed, sheets, etc. all felt new and clean. The staff is very friendly. I highly recommend this place!

Alaska's Select Inn Motel in Wasilla, AK is a wonderful place for a good night's sleep. The beds are very comfortable, the room is large with a couch, nice tv and a kitchen. The staff is very friendly & accomdating. It's to Walmart, food & gas.

Room Tip: Rooms are large, we had a king but other relatives had adjoining rooms. Kitchen would be great for a...

From the outside this place doesn't look like much. And there are opportunities for improvement. But given the cost we paid we were very satisfied. We're a family of 5 and the size of the suites and the sleeping options in the rooms was a nice change from the more cramped traditional hotel rooms. Free Wi-Fi, HD TV, and full kitchen were nice and the rooms were clean with plenty of parking. 120v outlets were available at all parking spots too.

On the down side. The rooms were too warm (in summer, but outside temps in the 60s) and even with windows open stayed too warm. One of our kitchen cabinet doors was missing. There were too few dishes and silverware and it was all mismatched so we had to take turns eating/drinking. There were some stains in the hallway carpet that really should be taken care of as well. Again, mostly little things, but if those were fixed this probably would have been a 5 star review given how comfortable, large and inexpensive it was.

Room Tip: Kids playing in the streets at night were a bit loud, ask for the Bogard side if you can.

We just stayed here for 2 nights last week with our 3 and 1 year old boys. While I am sure that the other guests did not enjoy us being there (due to our loud children), we really enjoyed it! The whole building used to be an apartment complex. We got the "suite" which has a separate bedroom and then another bed in the main area with a small kitchen. It was great to have a separate room to put kids to bed/nap and still have a spot to hang out. The kitchen was stocked with basic items. It was nice to have a place to fix some food. The rooms were clean and the management great. We've also stayed at the Best Western in town, which is nice as well, but for a family with children, this is a better bet.

Hotel is only 10 years old and very quiet. Rooms a little small but has kitchen in every room. Just a basic hotel without pool, fitness room, etc. Only 45 minutes north of Anchorage and a few hours south of Denali. Wasilla is home to Iditarod headquarters and museum. Rates lower than Anchorage hotels. In residential area so need to walk or drive to restaurants.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor so very quiet.

My wife asked me several times how did I find this cozy hotel. It had a small kitchenette and was very clean. Lady attendant was helpful with our questions. Only problem at all is the little bit of road noise. I would definitly stay here again and probalby longer if back in the area

This is one of the best, if not best hotel I have stayed at. It is away from downtown so that you don't have to deal with traffic but close enough to get to Walmart or Fred Myers within 5-10 mins. The staff were very accommodating with anything I asked them. The price was great to have a very large room with a king size bed plus a kitchen with a full size fridge. We had 3 large closets that was more than enough of room for our things. The water in the shower would get more than enough hot. Our floors were steamed while were there keep it fresh. I would recommend this place to anyone and hopefully I will be going back there soon.
