“Tough stay for cheap”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I don't need a 5-star stay to make me happy with a hotel, however I do expect good service, clean rooms, and a pleasant stay.

When we arrived, we were greeted by staff on their cell phones, eyes down. Once we got their attention, it was quite the process to get our keys made. The elevator was scary and smelly, and the luggage carts were falling apart. Our room was nice, but the sheets were very coarse and uncomfortable. The walls were so thin that someone in the hotel was having sex--and being very loud about it--and we heard them like they were in our room.

I'm aware that some activities occur in hotels, but I would have expected some more sound deadening, as we could also hear someone's TV at 7am.

The WiFi didn't work, and we were trying to plan our day in Anchorage and do some business. Had to go down to the desk for the only pleasant experience of the whole trip--the desk clerk at night was very kind and helpful. She didn't know anything about how the WiFi worked, but tried to help me out. We ended up having to call their ISP to fix it, and it finally got it working for us.

If it weren't for that kind woman at the desk, it would have been a very poor experience. Some of your staff are inattentive, but this woman was a great customer serviceperson! (Thank you, woman whose name I can't remember!)

We have booked our hotel in Anchorage far in advance. Even then many hotels were no longer available and we were happy to find this hotel available still at a really good rate by comparison to many other hotels in the area. Booking directly online on the hotel chain web site saved us $10 per night off the rate quoted on other travel web sites. Clean, well located next to many other much more expensive hotels. Bring your own shampoo, as the chain does not provide any.

Obviosly this is a motel, not a 4 star hotel. It was okay. The main reason we stayed here wasbecause they have smoking rooms, because other hotels that allow smoking, like the Hilton, were booked the weekend we went on short notice. I have walked into smoking rooms before that didn't smell like cigarette smoke, but this was not the case at this motel. It smelt like there were several unemptyed ashtrays in the room. The one good thing was that the bedding didn't smell like cigarette smoke. The other part that was not good, was in the middle of the night there were drunks in the hall, that were making a big commotion, but the staff did take care of it. Also there were some people in the parking lot that were fighting. Other than those issues, it was to be expected at this type of motel. It is a newer motel six, which made it a nicer motel than most.

Quite a good motel close to Anchorage airport.
The rooms were clean, nice and spacy, coffee and tea provided in the lobby.
Free shuttle to the airport.
Wi-Fi did not work but was immediately fixed when I announced it - it is a good sign.

The best part about Midtown Motel 6 was that it was clean. There is nothing extra - not even a hair dryer. The hotel didn't even have one available at the front desk. The lobby is spartan, offering only lukewarm coffee. Adjacent to Motel 6, you can pay a bit more and get breakfast and many other amenities. Motel 6 is the place to stay on a budget if you ONLY want a bed and a hot shower.

This hotel was built just a few years ago and this was my first stay. The room was clean and basic but nice except for in the shower. There was a obvious line of black mold where the wall liner meets the tub. This has been there a while as there was run off streaks that made me notice it to begin with. Amazing that the housekeeping staff would just ignore it instead of just cleaning it. My co-workers who stayed in a different wing had issues with the people upstairs thumping around after midnight and drunks arguing in the halls as well. I know that this can happen at any hotel but, this happened on more than one evening.

The hotel was in a great location. The evening staff person was very pleasant and helpful. the daytime staff person wasn't as much. There was coffee in the lobby. It had been sitting there for awhile and was barely lukewarm. There was only a small bar of soap in the room. No hair dryer to use. Other than that it was OK.We did get shampoo/conditioner when we asked the front desk for one. Very close to the airport, clean, quiet and comfortable beds.

Room Tip: The staff is accomodating but you have to ask for things you need.
