I have always liked staying at this location. If is convenient to where I need to be. I don't care that there is no restaurant/bar attached. There is a microwave and refrigerator so I am set. After a long day, sometimes I just like to relax in my room. It appears to have been remodeled since my last visit. Very...

We stayed at this hotel in September 2016. We liked the clean, large room with a living room area. Free breakfast was a plus. Staff was super friendly and hotel is in walking distance to American Airlines Center. We walked to the AAC a couple of times to watch a volleyball tournament. We later realized their is a lake behind...

This hotel is very clean. The view of the snow covered mountains was beautiful. The breakfast buffet is better than most. Good desk area in the room to work at. Comfortable bed. Sofa/chaise lounge. I would stay here again!

This hotel was in a lovely location right on a big lake. Lots of people with dogs walked around the dirt road that surrounded the lake (apparently it is a dedicated dog park). Every evening when I got back from work, I would wind down by sitting by the lake on a bench and watch people with their dogs. The...

This is a clean, modern hotel with a great view of the lake and mountains. It has a dog park behind it with a nice walking trail. Bonfires are lit outside in a big fire pit in the winter months. Breakfast is free of charge and has lots to choose from. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient.

My wife and I really enjoy this hotel. We have stayed here multiple times and it has always been a good experience. It is situated very close to a small lake, near the providence Hospital Complex. It is easy to get to anywhere in the Anchorage area from here.

Recently enjoyed 2 evenings here. Attended in order to participate in nearby meetings.
