Positive Reviews

Plenty of places to eat nearby

The hotel is located in an area that has quite a few restaurants and fast food joints nearby. Guests say they could walk to a number of different places. There is also a restaurant on-site that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Alaskan size rooms very clean

Visitors say the rooms at the hotel were quite spacious and kept in a good condition. The modern rooms come with several amenities including TVs, coffee makers and large bathrooms.

Get exposed to the north

The hotel is situated right off a main freeway in Anchorage and serves as a nice base for those who want to explore everything the city has to offer or need to conduct business in the area. The business district is a few minutes away by car and downtown can be reached in ten-minutes.

Negative Reviews

Lacklustre lobby

The lobby and common areas of the hotel felt somewhat old when compared to the rooms, guests have noted. While it wasn't anything to affect your stay, visitors say the lobby could be a little nicer.

Won't drain away

Guests say the drains at the hotel take a long time to do their job which leads to water hanging out in your sink or shower for longer than you would expect. While it doesn't flood or anything like that, visitors note that is kind of annoying.

The bare essentials

The hotel does not offer free breakfast or an airport shuttle which guests say was disappointing given the price of staying at the hotel. You can purchase breakfast at the hotel's restaurant for an additional charge and there are several options from getting to the hotel from the airport.
