“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

A super place to stay in Anchorage. Good rates, convenient to airport (free shuttle), city bus stop, several car rental agencies, Lake Hood, restaurants. The room was quiet, clean, large and equipped with floor fan which came in handy on warm days. We used it as our staging point for the each phase of our 2 weeks in Alaska, staying 3 nights over a span of 2 weeks. We would definitely stay again just based on these factors. However, the best thing about this place is the incredibly helpful and warm staff. We felt each time like we were coming back to family. One even offered her library card for us to use ! Many of the guests we talked to had been coming for years and I can understand why. We are adding ourselves to that list.

We stayed here 3 nights during a 2 week tour of Alaska. This is a very affordable, great place to stay in Anchorage. Good location, close to restaurants, a convenience store, the airport and with free shuttle. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The staff are very nice and helpful. Good breakfast with fruit. Plenty of ice available. It was quite warm during our stay, but the rooms have good fans that work well. We rented a car during our trip, and Enterprise will pick you up at the motel, saving about $40/day in airport tax.

I host trips to different fishing lodges in SW Alaska and have stayed at the Lakeshore Motor Inn since 2005. We stay there on our way to and from our primary destinations. I have not encountered one problem except for a noisy water pipe (?) in a first floor room. The staff has always been very welcoming and helpful. Now, it's not the Captain Cook...if you want to be spoiled with fancy fixtures and fancy continental breakfasts, go there...but for my dollars, Lakeshore has earned my business.

Great place to stay when traveling though Anchorage. Rooms are clean, comfortable and affordable. We use this hotel every time we are in Anchorage. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Plus an added bonus is its close proximity to both the international airport and the seaplane base. They offer free shuttles to both.

This was recommended in Frommers but I don't have any idea why! The rooms were dirty, the door and window locks were broken. The whole place was musty smelling. Would not return. The staff were all very nice.

The room we stayed in was nothing exceptional - pretty basic. But it was clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. We stayed two nights - the first night in Alaska and the last night. Would recommend this motel.

Candy was particularly friendly and helpful.
