Comfort Inn Ship Creek
Ranked #30 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Reviewed October 17, 2012

All the reviews are absolutely correct! I stayed here on my first and last night in Anchorage. It's located near the train station and about 30 mins from the airport. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and very clean. I was lucky enough to get upgraded to one of the larger suites which overlooked the creek and had extremely high ceilings with a fan. Breakfast was standard fare, eggs, sausage, make your own waffles etc. Coffee was good and available all day. Parking was free and there was a laundry available but I didn't use it. Staff was friendly and accommodating, the lobby was nicely decorated, the wif-fi had a good signal and was reliable. Overall an excellent stay and great price. I will definitely stay here again when I return to anchorage.

Room Tip: The hotel is near the railroad station so be aware that you will hear the train when it arrives and...

We stayed here the night before catching the train to Whittier for our cruise. We chose it because of positive reviews, location and complimentary shuttle service. We used the shuttle to get to the hotel after dropping of our rental car at the airport . We were early so our room was not ready but luggage was stored (friendly, helpful driver, front desk staff) and we were able to walk downtown to do some shopping and then to Glacier BrewHouse. Upon return our large king room was ready and it met our expectations. We had no difficulty sleeping because of any train traffic. It was also great to go out for an evening walk to the creek. Breakfast was your standard fare and met our needs. As we were only a block away from the railroad station and the sun was shining we chose to walk there rather than use the shuttle.

Took a later flight out of Anchorage and requested a Comfort Inn for my layover. Delta Airlines footed the bill. And what a great choice it was. Put us up in a two room suite. Staff was great. Location right by the tourist railroad. Also only a short walk to downtown and great shopping and resturants. Needed transportation to airport and hotel provided a taxi cab at there expense.

We picked this hotel because it was close to the train station. It is about a block away. Easy to walk to if it isn't raining or they have a shuttle. The hotel was nothing spectacular, but was clean, just a normal hotel with a normal breakfast. Nothing to complain about or nothing to brag about.

Great place to stay if you plan to take the Alaska Railroad - it's only 1 block away. Clean room. Easy check in. Expensive for what you get. You can sleep 4 adults in 1 room to save money.
Check out the salmon fishing in the stream right behind the hotel - way cool!! And I could do laundry in their laundry room prior to sailing on our cruise out of Seward.

My husband and I stayed here three separate nights the end of August. Shuttle service is excellent, motel is very clean and the breakfast was more than just a complimentary breakfast. We had no complaints and would stay here again.
