Reasonably good value.

Good location and reasonably good value. The room is too small for more than four persons.

Hotel chosen for our 1 night stopover from Denali train trip hence suited our purpose. Was noisy & old part of town but free transfers provided & computer/WiFi. Relative to other hotels in area price was good.

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.

Fine for family of five

We overnighted before we drove to Fairbanks and had no major complaints. Our kids are 2, 4, and 6 and slept well before our journey. We were on the fourth floor and had no problems. Would suggest that they get darker shades since it is light so late. The parking is a little complicated but we managed for the night. Nothing fancy but for a stopover it works fine.

great accomodation

Before I arrive at the hotel, I called the Hotel to let them know that I would be needing special accomodation. I just had surgery and would be needing a quiet room. Kyle, a frontdesk clerk of the hotel, was on duty that day and took good care of me. He was able to place me in a quiet room away from the street side of the city, he gave abd placed me at the 4th floor area, and I was able to get a goodnight sleep. The room was very clean. There was a problem on the coffemaker but the management was able to replace and gave me a working coffeemaker right away after I called them. All in all, my hotel experience meets my highest expectation and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Cheap Route-66

I have stayed at this hotel many times, this time the experience was not the greatest. The staff from 3-11 very inconsiderate. Horrible Customer Service. I will not be staying there anytime soon.
