For the one night between coming in on the train and leaving for a cruise, this hotel was acceptable but definitely no extra frills or 'grand'ness. The location was very convenient and easily walked from the train station (uphill). We had a handicap accessible room. There was also a kitchenette. Breakfast was delivered, but was a granola bar, microwaveable oatmeal,... More

One of the closest hotels to the Alaska Railroad Anchorage Depot. We reserved through Booking.com for two nights prior to our journey. We had an excellent experience at this small family-run hotel. Some nits: The hotel is located on a steep hill. So our suite with kitchen (more like a small one bedroom apartment) on the first floor required us... More

Sorry to pile on with many of the other reviews, but I will be as fair as possible. PROS: Convenient location for walking to shops, restaurants, and bars. Room size is great, with basically a full kitchen. Front desk woman was pleasant. They gladly held our box of fish in their freezer overnight at no charge. Bed was comfortable. CONS:... More

We had a large amount of luggage and chose this hotel based on its proximity to the railroad. Nowhere did it indicate that we would have to go down a flight of stairs just to get to the elevator, and of the three people behind the counter, not one offered to help us. Same with our 5:30 a.m. departure. Not... More

This is an old large house converted into a hotel and I actually had what was an appartment with living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette, fiited with everything that you would... More

The only Pro is a good location. We stayed there one night because we couldn't get into the Westmark or Hilton. There are many negatives: 1. Noisy!!! Train whistles 24-7. 2. The Room had a very musty unpleasant odor and the decor is dated. 3. The Front desk woman was very unfriendly. When asked if breakfast was included with the... More

I'm just going to list the pros and cons for this hotel. Pros: very friendly staff. Close to downtown eateries and shopping. Free parking just around corner. Tons of pillows on bed. Kitchenette. Cons: VERY LOUD TRAINS ALL NIGHT LONG. Not as clean as I like. Somewhat dated.

Located a few blocks from downtown, this hotel is extremely clean and close to the the railroad station and a great restaurant, The Bridge and the Ulu store, both of which I would recommend you visit. We had an efficiency apt set up with a bedroom, living room and kitchenette. The staff is extremely friendly, you get a bagged breakfast... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thanks so much for staying with us, and for the nice comments. I'd like to mention that we will always offer a late check out when possible, but that is not normally possible during the busier summers months. With only 31 guest suites, and new guests wanting to check-in early, we are unable to accommodate the late... More

The train station is a 5 minute walk up a small incline. Easy enough with luggage. The hotel is an older apartment that has been converted to a hotel. Our room faced the train station and it was a hot night so with no AC we had our windows open and had to listen to an insane amount of train... More
