“Met My Needs”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is an older hotel and appears reasonably well maintained. My room was clean and reasonably comfortable, though a comfortable chair (aside from the old-fashioned desk chair) would have been a nice addition. The room and décor reminds me of a major chain roadside motel from the 70's or 80's... which is fine. It met my needs, but if you need plush or fancy, keep looking.

The staff here is helpful and friendly and they can help make your stay in town a pleasant one. The hotel offers shuttle service. I only used it to and from the airport, and I don't know if they'll take you elsewhere in town.

The Ramada is on the edge of downtown and pretty conveniently located, a major criteria for me while doing my hotel search. The downtown area is small and, therefore, most places in the downtown area are not far from downtown attractions. If you're going to be here for any length of time, rent a car. The city is not that big and it's easy to learn your way around to sample what the city and area have to offer.

The Ramada is a good value. By most standards, the room was not expensive and was less expensive than much of what I saw online while doing my search.

The best thing this Ramada has going for it is the friendly staff and location. They also provide free shuttle to and from airport and train station. This is the reason we stayed there as not all lodging in Anchorage has both, which is what we needed. The Ramada itself is okay but older. The rooms were advertised on their web page as newly remodeled -- which they are not.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get room 308. It is not very good at all. It is small and pretty banged up...

It was the place I crash after more than 30+ hours of flights. However, it is not the tiredness that make me think this hotel is awesome. We booked a twin bedroom and the room still has enough walking area after we lay out our 30" luggage. The bed was very spacious, comfortable and the room has a microwave, tv, fridge, writing table with chair as well. Above beyond, the room was really clean. Frontdesk was helpful and knowledge of the nearby area.

I especially like the toilet facilities. The toilet is very clean and has white lights which is much brighter and easy to do our makeup. In addition, it has a bathtub that is very clean n nicely design such that it is non-slip.

The breakfast was basic with the cereals offering, bread & jam, bagels & muffins and some cutted fruits. It would be better if they offer American breakfast at no cost.
Would strongly recommend to stay here if you are in Anchorage.

I was pleasantly surprised by the room. The price was so low, I was not expecting such wonderful desk staff and a truly comfortable room. The bathroom fixtures were new, clean and functional. The carpet was ugly but clean. I had a microwave and fridge, outside balcony w/chairs, free parking, and free wifi. What more do you need when traveling for business meetings?

We found our room was clean but needed updating. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. After a 7.5 hour flight it did not have to have all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. Easy walk to Glacier Brewhouse and downtown. The sit down breakfast with $3 dollars off was good. We felt safe around the hotel, but Anchorage had its own feel not found in the rest of Alaska. Remember it's a city and not remote.
