The room was was adequate. We had trouble with the key card on several occasions--had to get help to get back into the room after breakfast. Breakfast itself was not great with very little selection. The "orange juice" was some sort of watered down beverage. Shuttle service was good but they don't have a courtesy phone at the airport and...

The Merrill Field Inn is located within a long walk of downtown. But wait, they will take you and go get you for what every you tip the driver. Never have I had that sort of experience before. OK, this isn't one of the plush pampering places that charge several hundred dollars a night. This IS a clean ordinary and...

The room that we stayed in for two nights was clean, spacious and the bed slept in was very comfortable. The bathroom was bright and very clean. The staff were gracious and helpful about what to do and where to eat while visiting Anchorage. We enjoyed our stay there and if we are ever back in the area will book...

Nothing fancy ( actually a bit outdated) but the rooms are clean, the customer service is great, free shuttle to airport and downtown,complimentary breakfast, and all this for a reasonable price. Only drawback: nothing to do near the motel except an adult store!

Very good one night stay in this modest motel one of the least expensive (still $145!) of Anchorage hotels. The location is very good if you need to take a small plane to a remote location otherwise quite dismal. The rooms are simple and clean. Breakfast included until 9:30 but we missed it by a few minutes . A big...

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! It is unfortunate you missed our free continental breakfast and if you choose to stay with us in the future, just call the front desk and they will happily leave the breakfast out a little longer. We will even prepare a small batch of the hot breakfast...

I arrived one night before the cruise. Ajeet, owner manager, and his family, rate outstanding in customer service. The outdated room and bath, quirky perhaps, was immaculately clean. It had microwave and fridge, and all other amenities I needed. It is next to an adult business; I neither heard nor saw anything disturbing. Ajeet picked me up at the airport....

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! While we can't do anything about our location, we do try to make up for it with amenities such as the free shuttle, as well as keeping the rooms equipped with little conveniences like coffee makers, iron and ironing boards and free wi-fi; things you would not...

It was only for one night, thank God. It began on a good start, we had the room early(noon) . Room correct but air conditioning very noisy (had to stop it for the night) and bathtub very slippery(dangerous in fact). Breakfast (included) very very basic and you have to eat in the lobby (minimum sitting places). But the worst was...

I needed to be in Anchorage for only one day, and was seeking a basic place to stay. The average price for basic hotels was well into the $200 range and I was able to stay at Merrill Field for $112 including tax. As it is described, it is a modest hotel, a bit older, generally smaller motel style rooms....

Booked through Hotwire. I have had pleasing results with this site. BUT, not this time. Apart from the close location to downtown this hotel has little to offer. The room was just adequate. The air con hardly worked. The noise from the upper level kept me awake. There is no areas to sit outside. And forget about the breakfast. It...
