We stayed there a week ago in their junior suite room. When my son woke up in the morning he had a bite in his forehead causing his forehead to swell for 5 days. We were not sure if it was an insect or spider that bit him. But for sure it was from the bed.The room is good size...

It was my first time in Anchorage and I was traveling alone. I pulled into the hotel parking lot which was tiny and checked in. First off I noticed that the front desk clerk put on my check in card that there were 2 occupants. I told her again that I was alone and she explained that many of their...

Careful before you give them your credit card. We booked and cancelled a room with them with a credit card on the same day (1 month before reservation date). Their even sent confirmation email with cancellation number. Then after a month they go ahead and charge me anyways. They said email confirmation is not valid way to cancel reservations!!

Front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Small fridge in the room. The room had a lot to be desired. It was the cheapest place I could find and it shows. Very run down. Dirty comforter, all the other linens seemed to be clean. I had a nonsmoking room but could smell stale smoke coming from the other rooms.

Absolutely not worth the money. Everything about this place is bad. 1. the parking lot is bad getting in or out. It is on a busy road more so away from the main "downtown" of Anchorage. 2. The lobby area is uninviting and dark. When you walk in it soon becomes obvious that you are in a cheap place. It...

It usually takes really bad quality of service overall to make me leave a bad review. Unfortunately, I stayed at this place due to my flight delay and cancellation of another hotel I had booked. I know alaska is expensive and I wasn't expecting anything above 2 star for 100 dollars a night (amount I paid for econo inn)...there are...

The room was very very very hot- you could not turn the heat down. The room had a fan the was attached the the room light, so when you turn light out, the fan was off. I complaint several times about the heat in the room. Nothing was done. I had the window wide open and it was 19* out...

The free shuttle arrived within 20 minutes of the free call from the airport phone bank. The driver and staff were very courteous and helpful. On this warm, 78-degree, late July day, the a/c worked well, the free Spring-Water Fountain in the lobby came in handy. Beds, Bathroom and Lobby were Clean and Comfortable; TV was old; channels were limited...

Despite other reviews this hotel was very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only downfall to this hotel is that the walls are thin so I did hear the people above me and I could hear people going up and down the stairs. I would definitely stay here the next time I visit.

Staff very polite. Shuttle available for any time. Room confortable and price/quality ratio extremely good. And the hotel is 5 minutes walkig from downtown. I definitively recomend this hotel! Inside the hotel there is also an excellent chinese/japanese restaurant.
