We never actually stayed at hotel because when we drove in front and saw what type of area it was in, the back of the hotel gave to a car wreck/car parts area. The whole area is mid downtown, looking like an industrial part, not at all in a typical tourist area. A very busy main street right in front, with cars and trucks passing constantly.
I had gotten the impression from their site and the photos that the hotel was
10 minutes out of town (more forestry) than in town, almost by itself. We never went in to even see the motel and asked the shuttle driver to take us to the next big name hotel that the next passengers where going too.
The outside photos are true, they have cleverly cut out the front very busy street and the surrounding area. I had even called the hotel and got the impression it was really outside of town practically nothing around except maybe one restaurant. They really didn't "explain" the location of the hotel either when I had called to ask about it and as a person from Florida
who comes to visit Alaska for the first time and this is the first big city we visit, this was very deceiving. I cant believe that no one on Trip advisor talked about this on the recommendations page. Wonder if it was cut out? So please if you are used to normal to high quality hotels find another one or you might find yourself paying your whole room and second one when you see this one.
