I like a lot of people coming out of Anchorage picking up someone at the airport, we were at the Anchorage airport late and the Bird Creek Motel is a great location to stop for the night, especially if you’re headed to the Kenai Peninsula. Two bedroom apartment with living room and for kitchen and access to a private laundry room. Beds are comfortable and linens soft, and were able to walk across the street to go to the beautiful campground with a fabulous PAVED trail system. The family is super nice and they have a wonderful friendly front desk pup!!! Recommended!
We wanted to stay somewhat close to Anchorage Airport for our return trip from Homer. What a pleasant surprise! Owners were nice, price was reasonable, and good pub grub close by. Most importantly though, the room and amenities were terrific -- clean linens, full sized washer and dryer, big fridge and coffee/tea making supplies. It is set a bit back from highway so we heard no noise. Definitely recommended! (Booking tip - if possible, book through their direct website birdcreekmotel.com. Your price is the same but the owners benefit by not having to pay a booking site fee. Helps them keep prices low.)
The room was larger than I expected. It was clean, modern and well-equipped. For the price, there were many amenities. The owner was welcoming and customer-oriented. Its major drawback is that the location, close to the road and in our case, close to road construction, can mean some traffic noise; however, it wasn't bad. Across the road some, there's a lovely view so it would be a good place to walk, situated several miles from Girdwood along Turnagain Arm.
We stayed one night in a room with 2 beds in the same room. It was clean and comfortable. The family who runs the place is nice and very helpful. We decided to change our hotel for our last night and return. Unfortunately, they only had a large apartment, which was kind of a waste for 3 people to sleep before leaving, but we booked it. There was a kitchenette, a living room, and two separate bedrooms. Everything was very clean. You do have to clean up after yourself or there is an extra charge. We would go back to this hotel (well, we did). The hotel is very close to the Girdwood attractions.
My first thought was to keep on driving. I am so glad I didn't. The room was immaculately clean. The bed was very comfortable. The wi-fi and tv were both good. Coffee pot (extremely important) and small fridge! The owner even waited for me for my late check-in. Don't pass them by.
