“My Favorite in Anchorage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

For the last 9 years I have visited in Anchorage, Alaska. I found the Comfort Inn at Ship Creek the first year, and have stayed there several times all 9 years. It is very clean, has friendly help that remembers you each year, and is reasonably priced. The location is great for me also. Located within walking distance to downtown, but is yet islolated from the hurriedness of the city, and is very quiet. That is to say if you like trains! I do, and can enjoy the passenger and freight trains.

Room Tip: Either side of the motel. Facing Ship Creek, or the front facing the city skyline and the railroad.

Customer service is the word at this Comfort Inn. Maturity at the front desk in the form of a lovely man named Darryl lends this place a touch of class. Its not just efficiency here, he helps me secure rooms for the QUIET. I have a business contract here for this reason--it would seem a simple thing to NOT book a family with screaming children next door to a regular client who has to get up early for work...but others can't seem to manage what would seem to be "hotel reservations 101". I have another hotel contract in the area but keep drifting back to Comfort Inn...the Transportation maven is a delightful soul and always responsive to my calls from the airport, the breakfast staff is on top of every detail in the cafeteria, even the housekeepers acknowledge my tips and stop to chat with me. I'll be back.

Room Tip: Noise is a problem. Walls are very thin--you can hear whole conversations clearly and even snoring...

Stayed in Comfort Inn Ship Creek for 2 nights in august.(This hotel was part of the tour package I have chosen.) It's a walking distance to Alaska Train Depot. Hotel provides shuttle service to and fro the ted steven airport and the railway depot. Sleeps 4 people comfortably. Nice and good breakfast provided! Loving the Self-made waffles.

At the back exit of the Hotel, is a SALMON fishing platforms, this was the place I met true native inupiaks aka eskimos (who came from barrow). It's a nice place to watch sunset, watch the locals do some salmon fishing and to meet people :) Loving Alaska!

My husband and I only waited about 10 minutes at the airport for our driver from the hotel to pick us up to take us to the hotel. Once at the hotel I noticed the big brown bear in the lobby and all the other animal and fur. Ck in was fast and easy. The next morning we went to our continental breakfast and were surprised to see more food than we expected, and it was good too, plus everything was so clean in the dining area. We sat by an all glass wall so we could look out at the creek and I saw a bald eagle flying then landing near the creek. What a welcome to Alaska LOL.
We stayed at this hotel for two weeks and never had a problem. Everyone was super nice Daryl (front desk) Michael (dining area) , Kamie (Drove me to town and have me a few tips on where to eat along the way).
I loved my stay and would recommend this hotel to everyone !

We were a little leery about selecting this place to stay as we have had some not so good experiences in the past with Comfort Inns. This we a nice surprise ! Everything was great. The personnel, the breakfast room in the mornings, the cleanliness and size of the room, and the afternoon cookies. Will stay again next time.

All the reviews are absolutely correct! I stayed here on my first and last night in Anchorage. It's located near the train station and about 30 mins from the airport. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and very clean. I was lucky enough to get upgraded to one of the larger suites which overlooked the creek and had extremely high ceilings with a fan. Breakfast was standard fare, eggs, sausage, make your own waffles etc. Coffee was good and available all day. Parking was free and there was a laundry available but I didn't use it. Staff was friendly and accommodating, the lobby was nicely decorated, the wif-fi had a good signal and was reliable. Overall an excellent stay and great price. I will definitely stay here again when I return to anchorage.

Room Tip: The hotel is near the railroad station so be aware that you will hear the train when it arrives and...

We stayed here the night before catching the train to Whittier for our cruise. We chose it because of positive reviews, location and complimentary shuttle service. We used the shuttle to get to the hotel after dropping of our rental car at the airport . We were early so our room was not ready but luggage was stored (friendly, helpful driver, front desk staff) and we were able to walk downtown to do some shopping and then to Glacier BrewHouse. Upon return our large king room was ready and it met our expectations. We had no difficulty sleeping because of any train traffic. It was also great to go out for an evening walk to the creek. Breakfast was your standard fare and met our needs. As we were only a block away from the railroad station and the sun was shining we chose to walk there rather than use the shuttle.
