I stayed in this hotel for two nights while on a visit trip in Kotzebue.
I was pleasantly surprised as soon as I walked into the hotel. Our driver had told us that the hotel had recently been rennovated so we were coming at a great time. The brightly colored decor in the lobby (which was upstairs) was refreshing. Check-in was quick and easy. My room was amazing. (I had a little trouble working the TV and DirecTV combo but the operator was very helpful.) I ordered room service the first night and it was delivered in less than 10min!! Definitely a plus in my book. There was an observatory not too far from my room of which I took advantage. It was a relaxing lounge where you can stare at the water or read a little of the Kotzebue history. The next morning I went downstairs for the breakfast buffet (not included with the room). I thought the view from my room was nice but the view from the restaurant was AMAZING! I would suggest asking for a window seat but every seat offers a nice view, provided the restaurant is not crowded.
Though my stay was short here, it definitely left an impression. This was my FAVORITE hotel of my entire AK trip. (Yes, even better than the Anchorage Marriott.)
If I ever travel back for pleasure, I will definitely splurge (@$499/night, or so the sign on the room door read) and stay here.
