Comfy Bed!”

The main thing I liked about this stay was that the king bed was soooo comfortable. The place was as clean for a hotel. I never expect it to be as clean as I like, maybe because I’m a house cleaner. Everything was clean except for some dust behind the tv, which is ok with me. The water was hot and I loved that the linens and towels didn’t smell like strong scent. I am staying here again and I hope I have the same results!

Great price and not sketchy ”

It was a really nice, safe hotel and I didn’t feel like I was going to get mugged outside (which is how most Anchorage hotels feel). The room was really nice but the sliding door to the bathroom was annoying. Ours was broken and it would slide off of the rails, trapping whoever was inside the bathroom inside. Luckily I figured it out. But it was probably one of the best hotels in Anchorage you can stay at.

Nice location ”

The location is perfect for most anything you might be doing in Anchorage. Lake Hood is just outside so you can watch planes land and take off. Staffing seems to be an issue so many of the services usually offered were not offered. The staff was efficient but aloof . The beds are soft and the sheets don't stay on. It was clean . The last update unfortunately needs updated again. But I will continue to spend a night here when I need to be in Anchorage overnight.

Great Stay”

My daughter and I stayed here and we felt that the staff were very helpful especially Ron at the front desk. Thank you Ron for working us on our itinerary 😊. Our room was comfortable, the beds were wonderful. The shuttle service was great. The restaurant had good food and I liked watching the planes take off. However the curtains were dingy, room and hotel walkway had musty scent and tub didn’t drain well. View from our room was the dilapidated building next door. Also, just one laundry area.

This used to be a very nice facility, Now it is Born and needs updating. Worn and needs updating. The rooms in common areas are filthy. The floors are never ckeaned or vaccumed. Since this hotel is part of a large chain of a top elite hotel group, i can only blame this facilities manager for the conditions.

Worst place ever”

Booked a 2 night stay over NYE weekend for work. First night parked my personal vehicle in the hotel parking lot & it was broken into & the ignition was drilled out in an attempt to steal it to the point the vehicle couldn't move. Hotel staff was not accommodating in any way at all even after explaining the situation in there nonchalant approach or better yet there lack of any sort of decency. Luckily, we found a mobile mechanic to get us on the road on the day we were to checkout at noon.. spoke with front desk about what we can do as the mechanic is working on it .. It was my husband, myself, & our 2 dogs staying in 10 degree weather outside & no way to even start the vehicle to be warm. They said we can be in the room until 3pm which we were grateful, but once noon hit the harassment began. 3 different knocks on the door & a phone call in an attempt on getting us out of the room when we clearly spoke to the desk. Talk about stressful then another phone call saying we never paid for our dogs when we had to pay before we even got our room key. Never will we ever stay in this hotel again. First impressions can be deceiving... This place sounded perfect. Decent price..lobby is beautiful..& the 24 hour security that's listed as one of the amenities is what first drew us to the place..needless to say worse mistake ever..& to even try to speak to management is laughable as we requested multiple times & have yet to hear a word. We weren't looking for a handout or anything for our loss but the only request we had was just to be able to stay in the room until the vehicle was driveable. Front desk said we had until 3pm got the vehicle running & out of the room by 2:45pm. Do your research before committing to this hotel!
