Stayed 2 nights, first night went to the bar, no restaurant, but they do snacks and breakfast, which we never had. Barman a character, definitely an asset, will tell you about his work on "Scrubs" and his crush if you push him! Nice guy. Room fine, nothing negative to say, free coffee, tea in reception, management trying to upgrade, but...

It is Valdez, a commercial fishing and oil company town. There aren't that many places to stay. Breakfast is NOT included. The linens were nice. 4 pillows on both double beds was nice. Mattresses were ok, very bouncy. There was a nice sized mini fridge and microwave in room. No closet. Lampshades very stained but all lightbulbs worked. The bathroom...

Hello ABrue! Thank you so much for review. I personally believe that many of our tourists do not realize what Valdez is about and make the assumption it is a plush resort town. These same people also cannot distinguish the difference between a town and a city. You would not believe how many ask us where the nearest McDonald's or...

Valdez Alaska hotel with out room heat! They gave me a space heater that had the control knob removed, as was the knob for the heater/fan in the bath room. Wall behind toilet had a large patch of mold. Toilet ran continually.

We stayed one night at the Mountain Sky. It was ok. Front desk was nice. Place was clean. We did not eat there. The biggest complain I have is the walls are very thin. There actually was a locked door between us and another room. Heard the baby cry at night and in the morning. I did sleep well though...

We stayed at the Mountain Sky Hotel and Suites from 11-14 August, 2014. Big room, lots of space. It has a small fridge, a microwave, and a coffee maker in the room. We enjoyed our stay there. The staff was really friendly as well. There was also the opportunity to do your laundry. Ellen & Eva Eindhoven, the Netherlands

After we checked in and got the room keys at night, the hotel room really "surprised" me by not being cleaned yet! I NEVER MET THIS SITUATION BEFORE. We were very tired and sleepy and when the staff at the front desk knew about it he said in a small voice " I really want to kill the house keeper"...

My family recently stayed in room 334. Upon entering the room we noticed that the floor had a wet spot with a small fan pointed at it. Maybe a spill from something in the fridge. The very nice new comforters were not placed inside their duvet covers. There was a smell about the place which was probably from the old...

This hotel is a mix. Attractive lobby, clean beds, dirty carpet, clean bathroom badly in need of refurbishing with a shower which keeps changing temperature. An old coffee machine that looks unsafe. Room facing the noisy highway but lovely view of distant mountains. It was OK for one night before catching the ferry. Easy walking distance to the harbour.

This year marked our 3rd visit to gorgeous Valdez and our 3rd stay at Mountain Sky. One of the best things about Valdez is that it's not that "touristy" - most visitors never venture this far. But, that means the bar for quality accomodations is not set all that high. We've looked into ALL the lodging options in the area,...

Hello, Thank you very much for your review. I believe your review pretty much sums up what are trying to do with the hotel. Yes, our front desk staff is young and inexperienced. We are working with them everyday to bring them up to our guests' expectations. I am pleased our group sales manager was able to handle the issue...

We only had a glimpse of this motel style accommodation as we arrived late and left early for the ferry. Our impressions were mixed. First the bad news. The check in experience lacked competence. Every step by painful step for tired travellers was taken slowly and separately - voucher, ID, credit card, vehicle registration. Driving to the side entrance to...

Hello! Thank you for your review. It seemed you were part of a self-guided travel tour of AK. Our check-in process does seem laborious, but it is necessary for billing purposes with the tour company you booked with. We do require an address, phone number, and car info at check-in. 1, if you leave anything behind.. we know where to...
