“Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

It was clean and comfortable, however, we arrived late with no transportation of our own. There was nothing available to eat, the only delivery available would have taken 1 1/2 hours putting dinner at 1:30 in the morning. It would have been nice if some of the breakfast foods were available for purchase. Even an oatmeal would have been great. Also the vending machine was not working. Very frustrating.

This hotel was everything we expected. After reading the reviews we knew what were getting. The hotel is in a great location, near the train station (we walked with our luggage) and near town. The breakfast was good and room was nice. A bit of mold in the shower, but we had flip flops so not a problem. Our maid forgot to leave towels one day, but the front desk was very accommodating and brought them right up to us. The Bridge restaurant is excellent and well worth the money. We ate there both nights and were very happy. If you're not that hungry you can eat appetizers at the bar. The ULU factory store is next door and has wonderful Alaskan souvenirs. We would definitely stay there again. The front desk staff was also very knowledgeable and friendly.

Room Tip: We chose the higher floors as the first floor had walkways right outside the windows.

This hotel was like a home base for our travels north and south of Anchorage. The shuttle was a bit slow at getting us from the airport and we were very tired from a day of travel. The front desk was most helpful at suggestions for dinner. We walked there, (uphill) but it was worth the walk. Breakfast was the usual hotel breakfast. Area very small and congested, but the food was satisfying. The location was great for our next day excursion to the train station, 5 minute walk with luggage. Best part though were the fresh, out of the over cookies that were devoured as fast as they were put out.

Basic Comfort Inn. Good breakfast buffet. Located REALLY close to Ship Creek, which you can walk along on a paved path. Very close to train station. You can walk to Downtown, but...up a steep hill and it's a bit of a hike. The Bridge restaurant is about the only thing in walking distance for food...excellent but pricey. Expect a $30pp dinner bill.

We flew into Anchorage late at night the shuttle came and picked us up without question. We spent two nights, the hotel is next door to the Ulu knife factory and their shuttle runs into town and will pick you up by the visitor center. The breakfast wasn't bad eggs, sausage and the usual waffle and cereals. The hotel is right on Ships Creek so you can watch the fishermen fishing for salmon or walk across the bridge and rent gear and fish yourself. The hotel is near the train station, if you are taking the train the comfort inn is the place to stay. Will be back there at the end of our vacation for another nights stay.

Room Tip: Rooms near the creek have a nice view

The hotel isn't super fancy and is a bit of a walk to the city itself but it has great access to the Alaska Railroad terminal and a seafood restaurant for short stays. Rooms were clean and functional with a decent breakfast buffet. We used the hotel as a stepping off point for other adventures in Alaska and it was perfect for that purpose. Location looks kind of industrial if you plan to stay for any significant duration.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn Ship Creek for two nights at the end of our Alaska vacation. We were pleasantly surprised with the hotel! The lobby, pool, breakfast area, and other public areas were clean and nicely decorated. Check in was smooth, and the staff at the hotel was very kind and helpful. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and clean. The pool, although a bit small, was fun to use. The breakfast was very good, and offered lots of hot and cold choices, including scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, muffins, cereal, and waffles. The hotel also offered 24-hour coffee in the lobby, as well as freshly baked cookies every day. It is also very well located. Downtown Anchorage is just a short walk up the hill, and the Alaska Railroad depot is just a short walk in front of the hotel. Ship Creek is the hotel's backyard, with the harbor beyond. We really enjoyed our stay at the Comfort Inn Ship Creek, and we will return the next time we visit Anchorage. We would recommend the Comfort Inn to anyone staying in Anchorage.
