This is a nice hotel. Clean, cozy, and very comfortable. I did have two gripes, (though the overall experience was positive enough that I decided not to deduct a star.) First, we arrived in the room exhausted from a day of travel and decided to order room service rather than go down to the restaurant. We tried repeatedly to call... More

This is a remarkably good hotel in a very small city in northwest Alaska. Kotzebue is not Anchorage. It is real Alaska. I've been to it several times to hike the western Brooks Range, to overfly the caribou migration, and to visit Kobuk Valley NP and Serpentine Hot Springs. There is extremely limited shopping, and there are very few places... More

We got upgraded to a suite. The bed was nice and firm which we like. There was a microwave and refrigerator but no table and only one desk chair. There were laundry facilities right down the hall from our room--not cheap but certainly handy. There is no shuttle to the airport so you have to get a cab. It would... More

I have stayed at this property several times. Each time the service was friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and quite clean. Internet is free but very slow due to the poor service throughout town.

The hotel was nice (not just for Kotzebue). Internet connection was slow (about 0.5MB/S), but most hotels in Alaska have slow connections. Blackout curtains helped with the Arctic summer sun. Very expensive, but so is everything in Kotzebue. Overall, no complaints.

This was a great hotel considering the options for lodging in Kotzebue. The hotel is very clean and the rooms were nice sized. We had a great view over looking the water. We took at cab from the airport for $7.00 a person. The hotel is about less than half a mile from the airport. I actually walked back on... More

Stayed there in Aug, 2016. hotel and room were very nice, though a bit on the expensive side. Did not see any other options! Food in the moderate to expensive range. I had their Reindeer in gravy one night and it was spectacular! There is also a Chinese and American restaurant virtually next door.

Although the hotel is a bit dated it is clean, well maintained, and a friendly palce to stay in a remote part of Alaska. There is also a "viewing area" on the third floor that is excellent for group gatherings and just "hangin' out". We had a small birthday party there.

This far North it's rare to find excellent service and excellent food so this was a most welcome surprise to find world class status in both categories. I couldn't quite see Russia from here but I did count 9 seals in the Chukchi Sea easily viewable since it was right across the street. Staff was fast courteous and most professional... More

I hadn’t been to Kotzebue in years and was very surprised to see where I was scheduled to stay. This hotel is impressive! The views of the ocean where beautiful, my room on the 3rd floor clean and spacious and I was amazed how quit it was. The security of the hotel was also impressive. I had a very short... More
