We have just completed a most unpleasant 2 night stay at this hotel. The positives are that it is in a good location and it is well maintained. However the price is ridiculously high. The biggest problem is that the owner have placed signs throughout the property and rooms with "do's" and "dont's" that make you feel like an unwanted guest in an army barracks. I travel for around 100 nights per year and have never seen anything like this.
More than that, it was the attitude of the owners that make you feel unwelcome. Nothing like walking into reception to see a sign "We dont lower our standards, so dont ask us to lower our price" and then in the bedroom "$33 charge if you use the single bed in your room"
The owners are also quite rude. They reserve the right to throw you out for doing almost anything. We asked if we could pay 50% for a late checkout (which is standard in most parts of the world). They wanted 100% or we had to be out before 10am.
My tip - Our friend is a regular at the anchorage motel. We didnt stay there as all the apartments are 2 bedroom and the website does not look appealing. Their rooms were far nicer, including a full kitchen and the price was $60 less despite being bigger!
