Not bad for $99.00

Unfortunately I paid $300.00. At that price I expect a resturant, a decent shower, and someone to pick up the phone when I call the front desk for a wake up call.

Great value

Nice hotel, friendly, helpful staff. Relatively low price. Comfortable rooms. Very convenient for Alaska Railroad Depot. Some noise from trains, but they don't run all night. This was our second visit to this hotel.

Business/Family weekend

The hotel is always nice....nice continental breakfast. We always stay here when we come in. Close to downtown, walking distance. Creek in the back, you can watch the ducks and geese. In between to train tracks, so trains can be heard.

If you like the sound of a train whistle

Went for a doctor's appointment. Parking is sometimes a problem with this location.

Nice Stay!

Overall this is a great place to stay. The pool is a little small but the fitness center is the best "hotel fitness center" we have seen in a long time. Our room was clean, tastefully decorated, with a nice view of Ship Creek. We loved the convenient location and the sounds from the train yard nearby...... although, some may find the trains too noisy for their liking. All & all- a very pleasant stay!

Bad Experience

I had a late arrival reservation for a non-smoking room. When I arrived, the only room available was smoking, (previous guest in this room was definitely a heavy smoker, the room smelled like an ashtray). There was a High School basketball tourney in town...kids running/yelling up and down the hall ways until 2AM. I complained to the front desk. I requested, and was moved to a non-smoking room the 2nd night. Still had the kids running/yelling until about 2AM. I complained to the front desk. On the 3rd night, the room directly above me had a drunken party that awoke me at 3AM. I complained to the front desk, they allowed me to move to another room. On the 4th night, the room next to me was having some form of domestic disturbance, (yelling, fighting, throwing, etc.). I asked to be moved to a room on the top floor at the end of the building. The desk clerk advised me that it would cost more. After explaining my past several night's experience, the clerk agreed to relocate me at the same rate. The complimentary continental breakfast is spotty at best, (sometimes they have fruit and boiled eggs, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they run out of juice for a day or two). This hotel is reasonably priced, and is convenient to The Alaskan Railrod terminal,downtown Anchorage and Elmendorf AFB, however, I would not recommend staying here.

Clean & Quiet

My experience with staying at the Ship Creek Comfort Inn was good. I had a late check in due to the time of arrival of my plane. I stayed for 4 nights, the front desk staff was always different, but helpful and courteous. The room was clean, and the air conditioner worked well. I had a room on the first floor, facing the front of the building where there is a little traffic - but not much noise. The bathroom and shower were clean and neat. The breakfast that was provided was very limited in selection, the only fruit was a apple, and the menu only varied between two different offerings during the 4 days I was there. The wireless internet for the first 2 days was slower than a modem - not sure why - the front desk people could not explain or help - I talked with other people who were using their laptops and they also experience the same slow & dropping internet problem. Just be aware that there are no wall connections, just wireless - the last 2 days the internet was reliable and fast - so what's the deal? Trying to find the place was a bit hard, I was driving around and by chance saw the property below a bridge (lucky I previewed the property on the internet), I made a couple of wrong turns, but finally made it there (be aware that there are alot of one way streets in Anchorage). In summary - PROS: Clean, Quiet, Nice staff, no smoke smell, next to river walk, breakfast (kind of). CONS: Pricey, Breakfast (more fruit, better selections), Slow and intermittent internet.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Get some exercise and walk on over to downtown - less than 10 minutes. Don't forget to bring a umbrella in the fall.
