Comfort Inn Ship Creek
Ranked #29 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a very nice hotel, located right on Ship Creek where at certain times of the year you can see the salmon running. However it is down a steep hill from downtown Anchorage (1/4 mile). Luckily there is a free shuttle next door at the Ulu knife store that runs every half hour most of the day. The rooms are spacious and clean. The service was good and the complimentary breakfast bounteous. It is very close to the railroad tracks, but our room was on the creek side of the building so we weren't bothered by any noise from the railroad.

Room Tip: On the creek side.

We stayed in Comfort Inn for one night before our Denali trip and two nights at the end. Our first stay was perfect, large quiet room with two comfortable bed on the second floor. Our second stay had a problem we were given a room on the third floor that had a loud humming noise which appeared to come from the window end of the room. We checked that the air conditioning was off, and found the noise continued and that the whole end wall was resonating. They changed our room for a quiet room unfortunately we had to repack and make this change well after 11 pm when very tired from returning from Denali. My advise would be to check for noise if you are given a room on the third floor before unpacking.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms at the back of hotel towards the end of corridor are quiet.

Jeanne86 thank you for your comments on Trip Advisor. I am so sorry to hear that you had troubles with your returning trip to our hotel. I am glad that our night staff was able to accommodate a room move for you but so sorry to hear that you had to move rooms in the first place. I have my maintenance staff looking into the humming noise that you experienced on your returning trip and I hope that the 2nd room that you were moved into worked out better for you. Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your Alaskan vacation. Have a great rest of your summer!

Clean, spacious rooms. 4 pillows per bed - 2 hard, 2 soft. Wifi was fast! A/C was good to have in addition to opening windows. Provide transportation from bus downtown. Also next to train station.

Staff was friendly.

After staying close to Denali national Park, it was like a luxury hotel!

We stayed somewhere else in Anchorage for a couple nights, but it wasn't very good. When we moved into the Comfort Inn (to join up with a tour operator) we were very pleasantly surprised. We arrived at 6:45 am and they had a room available so we could dump our gear before heading out for a day of touring. They said we could have some breakfast, and we were very pleasantly surprised to find sausage and scrambled eggs in addition to the usual starch fest you find at a lot of breakfast included places. Our room was very pleasant and we enjoyed the free internet access. We would definitely choose this place if we ever return to Anchorage.

If train whistles at night don't bother you(or you sleep with the windows closed), this is a nice place. walking paths, green space across street - good for tossing ball for dog) Continental breakfast is offered. King room is spacious, comfortable, large windows with screens - awesome to have opened at night (if train noise doesn't bother you). Laundry, small pool, exercise room.

This is a nice property on the north side of Downtown Anchorage.

Looks like a small typical Comfort from the outside but the inside is nice and the staff is friendly. My check-in was quick and smooth. The room was clean and comfortable. No qualms here, I will return when I return to Anchorage.
