I stayed here for New Year's Eve, and it was a very good experience for me. The front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. The room was very clean and comfortable, there was a mini fridge which was a nice surprise. The location of the hotel is very convenient, it's right across the street from two great Anchorage restaurants, Kinley's and Moose's Tooth. If you're coming to Anchorage and would like a nice place to stay in a convenient location and a bit away from the hectic downtown area, the Golden Lion would be a very good choice!

On the outside and inside the hotel is aged. They don't serve continental breakfast because there is a full service restaurant in the building. The location is not conveinent to other eating places or downtown umless you have a car.

The place looks good from the outside, which is where I wish I had remained. Small lobby with a sauna crammed into the "exercise" room to the left gave a poor initial impression which did not improve. Stayed in a standard double on the second floor with a carpet that made me cringe and wear socks or shoes my entire 12 hours in the room. Old beds and bedspreads rounded out the worn shabby appearance. Drawers on the dresser would not stay closed and would quitely slide open to bark the shins of the unsuspecting traveler on nocturnal trips to the bathroom. No buffet breakfast, but coffee pot, refrigerator and microwave were presemt. Short drive from the airport. Keep driving.

This is a basic budget hotel. Pretty standard Best Western from my previous experience. The room was clean, and the property looked in good repair.

The bathroom was clean. The sheets and towels were all clean and in good shape.

I would definitely stay there again.

Our rooms were clean as well as the linen. Front desk friendly and helpful. I am from Fairbanks and the prices are in there (try paying the price of fuel and electric in Alaska) live band on the lounge as well as dance lessons. It was nice to have a restaurant and not just a simple continental breakfast, you can have a light meal, like fresh fruit, granola or yogurt if you please. Dinners are nice as well. They have a fitness room, sauna, and a salon if you want. If you complain about the price, look at our gas prices compared to yours.
