We stayed at this hotel on 2 separate occasions, the first on our arrival day checking in at ~7:30 pm and checking out the next morning at 9. We called the hotel to send the shuttle as soon as we got our luggage and waited about 30 minutes. We arrived to chocolate chip cookies being served fresh from the oven, found the rooms to be very pleasant, well supplied, and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast in the morning to be more than adequate. We walked around the creek watching the fisherman which was nice. We needed to use the shuttle the next day to take us to Avis which is in town, to pick up our rental car. When we inquired at check in we were told we would have to get on the schedule for the next day so we signed up for 9 am. We took the shuttle, picked up our car then returned to the hotel to check out and pick up our luggage.
Our second day was two days later in the evening on our return to Anchorage for one night before taking the train to Seward. We went to the hotel to check in around 7 pm hoping to drop off our luggage and get the shuttle to pick us up after we dropped off the rental car. We were told the shuttle was totally booked but they would probably do something around 8 pm. After waiting in the lobby for a while with the shuttle not returning, my DH decided he would drop the car off and walk back. It was ~ a 20 minute walk and that was the better direction to walk as it was downhill. We arranged for the shuttle to take us to the train the following morning at 5:30 am and went to our room for the rest of the night.
The setting was a little remote if you don't have a car but we were were happy with this hotel.
