one night stay

We stayed in this hotel one night when our family stopped by Anchorage last Aug.The hotel is old and not very clean, but it is convenient and deserve its value considering its relative low price in summer season.

nice people, good location, comfy

we stayed here twice on our Alaska trip to Denali. It is convenient to the railroad station--you could walk but with bags just a quick taxi ride. The rooms are standard fare, clean, comfy enough. The staff were great and very accommodating. Will stay again. We recommend for those traveling with kids.

great family stay

There was a confusion about cleaning our room and we returned from our day out to a room that was not cleaned. the cleaning lady came by as we were just getting rea dy to leave and my husband told her to come back later. however, our room was reported as no service needed. it was not nice to come back to a dirty room. we were very disappointed. there were no clean towels and no toiletries for our family to use.

convenient, affordable, nice staff

we stayed here twice for a night one each end of a trip to denali. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The area is convenient to walking to restaurants and even the train station if you are traveling light. rooms are adequate, nothing special. Would recommend and would stay again. Good for families.

You got what you paid for, it was not expensive

PROS:convenient location, plenty parking (designated space nearby the hotel, not actually by the hotel), friendly staff, stable internet with decent speed CONS: very heavy smell of cleaning product and fragrance to mask the underlining smell of pets (it reminded me a well kept veterinarian's office), patched up holes on the wall and door, slow elevator, very limited parking actually by the hotel, loud refrigerator in the room. However, to be fair, it was inexpensive comparing to other hotels in Anchorage and you basically got what you paid for.

OK, but . . . .

Expensive for the quality of construction and amenities. There seemed to be no insulation between rooms/floors. Very noisy and some questionable clientele. Some staff were caring and others not so much. I will not stay there again.

Great for the price

We needed a last minute hotel in Anchorage, knowing that summer prices were in effect. Guest Inn and Suites was a nice surprise. Located on 5th Ave, gave me reasons to worry, but the hotel and free parking were worth the slightly elevated summer price.

Bad location, good price

This was not a very good part of town. Lots of homeless, convicts and drifters. They constantly come up to you in the parking lot asking for stuff.
