I rarely write reviews but our experience at this motel needed to be told so that othesr are aware of what they may be getting into. Checked rates of other motels before checking in - only a few bucks less than others in the area. From the ooutside looks great - log cabin look and it is right off major highway (Parks). Checked in - day staff was not very friendly -appeared to be an effort. Front office was shabby and office area looked very disorganized - should have been a red flag but I like to be optimistic. Had to pay upfront instead of at checkout. In the room - turned down the bedspread and the pillowcase on the bed was covered in blood - soaked through to the pillow as well. Went and got the front desk staff (not the same as when we checked in) and she looked at it and said she had to make a phone call. Came back and stated she would change us to another room which we did. No other offer - like maybe discounting the room. We checked out the sheets in the second room - really not sure they had been changed either but at least there wasn't any blood on the linens. it was obvious that the floor in the second room had not been vacuumed as there was a variety of items on the carpet. Didn't really check this in first room - the shock of the bloodsoaked pillow was enough. It was late so we stayed.. used the sink - both hot and cold were just a trickle -shower was exactly the same - barely enough water coming out to rinse off. Beds were uncomfortable. Only plus was that you could sign in for wireless internet without an additional charge. Have never encountered anything quite like this in years of styaing at different motels. My advise - spend a few more bucks on another motel in the Wasilla Ak area but be sure to check the room before paying. I've learned my lesson - won't be as complacent if this ever happens again.
