My husband and I spent one night at the Lakeshore Motor Inn in late July, 2009. What a great find! This small inn, tucked in behind the Puffin Inn and across from the Holiday Inn Express on Spenard, provided all the same conveniences as the larger chains near the airport, but at less cost. Our room was quiet; the Inn had very friendly staff; there is a 24 hour shuttle to the airport, a sink outside the bathroom, plenty of hot water and good water pressure, and very good internet connectivity. There is no elevator but the stairs are easy to negotiate. No coffee is provided in the room, but the lobby had plenty available; the breakfast is very modest (pastries wrapped in plastic); a washer and dryer are available next to the office; and there are several restaurants within walking distance, including the historic down-home cooking restaurant, “Gwennies”. Though the Inn is very near Lake Hood, the float plane noise was not noticeable until around 9 a.m.
We are very happy to have found this little gem and certainly recommend it to anyone traveling through Anchorage.
