“Excellent Value - Well Satisified”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

As we have mentioned in other motel reviews .... We (husband and wife in our 60's) do not need a fancy place to stay while traveling. Our vacations are not planned around a hotel / motel as a destination point.

This Motel 6 is located very conveniently to the Ted Stevens airport.

We simply need a reasonable priced, clean place to sleep. Motel 6 in Anchorage met our needs perfectly. At a cost of $140.00 we felt that this was reasonable and fair. We were greeted by a friendly attentive young man when we arrived and given our choice of floor to stay on. Our room was clean.

We needed to wash and dry some clothes and were happy with the guest laundry facility on the 2nd floor. The motel does not have a continental breakfast, but does have fresh coffee and hot water (for tea). We do not need a "free" breakfast as we prefer to explore and dine at local favorite places, for a greater experience while in an area.

One item that may need some attention was that the elevator had a musty smell, maybe even cigarette smoke? I'm sure this can be corrected by the motel staff.

We didn't expect much but we arrived in the middle of the night, got a friendly greeting and got two rooms at the end of the hall, top floor. The rooms were nice and clean, and we couldn't hear a sound from other rooms and the location between the airport and town was very good. No complaints from us! There was free coffee in the am and reasonably priced items in the vending machine to hold us off til we got some breakfast.

Thin walls and noisy clientele means you might be up at 3am writing a negative review while the staff does nothing to address the problem. Could be cleaned better. Towels had several strands of hair on both towels. Urine or blood stains in bathroom. Blanket smelled like someone used it to wipe their bottom. I've tried to give the place a chance several times and have been disappointed each time. STAY AWAY!!!

Room Tip: Go to another motel.

We have often stayed here because it is a low price but you sacrifice the little extras that can make it a good overnight experience. It is a fairly new motel 6 located by 2 very nice hotels. The rooms are very nice and clean. The walls are thin and you can hear others in neighboring rooms. The staff are often inconsistent and can be rude. Check-out time is noon but you will get raps on the door by cleaning staff and they will even get very loud in the hallway to make sure that you leave before noon. There are vending machines in lobby to purchase snacks and there is a microwave and free coffee. Winter rates are cheaper but then you get the local customers which are not always quiet.

I don't need a 5-star stay to make me happy with a hotel, however I do expect good service, clean rooms, and a pleasant stay.

When we arrived, we were greeted by staff on their cell phones, eyes down. Once we got their attention, it was quite the process to get our keys made. The elevator was scary and smelly, and the luggage carts were falling apart. Our room was nice, but the sheets were very coarse and uncomfortable. The walls were so thin that someone in the hotel was having sex--and being very loud about it--and we heard them like they were in our room.

I'm aware that some activities occur in hotels, but I would have expected some more sound deadening, as we could also hear someone's TV at 7am.

The WiFi didn't work, and we were trying to plan our day in Anchorage and do some business. Had to go down to the desk for the only pleasant experience of the whole trip--the desk clerk at night was very kind and helpful. She didn't know anything about how the WiFi worked, but tried to help me out. We ended up having to call their ISP to fix it, and it finally got it working for us.

If it weren't for that kind woman at the desk, it would have been a very poor experience. Some of your staff are inattentive, but this woman was a great customer serviceperson! (Thank you, woman whose name I can't remember!)

We have booked our hotel in Anchorage far in advance. Even then many hotels were no longer available and we were happy to find this hotel available still at a really good rate by comparison to many other hotels in the area. Booking directly online on the hotel chain web site saved us $10 per night off the rate quoted on other travel web sites. Clean, well located next to many other much more expensive hotels. Bring your own shampoo, as the chain does not provide any.

Obviosly this is a motel, not a 4 star hotel. It was okay. The main reason we stayed here wasbecause they have smoking rooms, because other hotels that allow smoking, like the Hilton, were booked the weekend we went on short notice. I have walked into smoking rooms before that didn't smell like cigarette smoke, but this was not the case at this motel. It smelt like there were several unemptyed ashtrays in the room. The one good thing was that the bedding didn't smell like cigarette smoke. The other part that was not good, was in the middle of the night there were drunks in the hall, that were making a big commotion, but the staff did take care of it. Also there were some people in the parking lot that were fighting. Other than those issues, it was to be expected at this type of motel. It is a newer motel six, which made it a nicer motel than most.
