“"Clean and quiet"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We stayed at the Comfort Inn Shipcreek because it was reasonably priced for Anchorage and had a pool. The rooms were clean and the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We did not use the pool because there was a large number of small children jumping in and out making it look more like a "kiddie pool".

The location is perfect if you plan on using the railroad. Surprisingly, the trains did not bother us or wake us up. We would stay here again.

Recently I visited Anchorage Alaska and decided to stay at the Comfort Inn at Ships Creek. It was a pleasant surprise. I had a Jacuzzi in the room and it was a hop, skip and jump away from the Alaska RR station. The free breakfast was fine and the shuttle to the train station in the rain was convenient. I will stay here again when I visit in December. Excellent choice at a fair price.

Room Tip: try to get the jacuzzi in your room.

We selected this motel because of its access to Alaskan railroad, which we planned to take very early the morning after our arrival. The motel has a shuttle to the rr station just a few minutes away. The room was large, we were on the third floor with a slight view. There is an elevator. The bathroom had grab bars, an important issue for us now. The room included a refrigerator, a microwave, ice was available on each floor. Food can be ordered from outside vendors - we thought that we were getting pita bread sandwiches and two churros, but instead everything was made at a pizza joint and the food was awful - thick crusts, messy. ugh.

Our room was not serviced every day during our stay. The breakfast was extremely limited in variety, but was presented in sufficient quantity.

The problem with being near the train station is the noise form the railroad all night long.

I would definitely recommend staying elsewhere.

Room Tip: To get a good night's sleep, stay elsewhere.

This hotel is 1st class all the way; very helpful, accommodating staff and shuttle drivers. Rooms are spacious and lovely with breakfast included for a great price. It's only a block or so from the Alaska Rail Station, which is very convenient. We wanted to eat downtown, and our shuttle driver took us to a great restaurant -- she had also picked us up from the Convention Center from our Holland
America Cruise. One of her Comfort Inn clients had forgotten his insulin in his room, and when Holland America refused to transport his meds back down to him on their ship in Seward, she found another bus company to do it! Better service you couldn't ask for!!! I think her name was Keri? and the other great driver was Jason?

I Love the Comfort Inn! I have stayed here many times before and the kids just love it. Nostalgic area, great pool, make your own waffle breakfast that stays open till 10am, and a great price! The staff is WONDERFUL and so kind and courteous. I bring the sports teams here when we have meets and games in Anchorage and they are very accommodating to the schools. I had a problem with one of their sister resorts - The Clarion Hotel - and the front desk individual at the Comfort Inn was so apologetic for Clarion's behavior and afforded me the information I needed to make that situation right. I should have stayed at the Comfort Inn that weekend! Love this hotel and will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the hall have a quick access to the parking lot for easier loading and unloading...

We stayed at the Comfort Inn on Ships Creek in Anchorage at both ends of out Alaska vacation. It was all you could hope for in a vacation hotel. Clean rooms, nice free breakfast, great service, free shuttle to airport and all local attractions. The location was perfect for exploring downtown Anchorage and it was within walking distance of the Alaskan Railroad. We were treated well and would return.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room facing the Ships Creek (back side).
