Good pit stop for the money

Like another reviewer wrote, when I first saw the hotel I wanted to turn around and leave -- sketchy-looking people loitering in the parking lot, yes, an adult boutique and a Pin-ups Espresso bar next door. However, hotels are insanely expensive in Anchorage, and for this price, it was definitely worth it. It's not the cleanest, nor the most modern, nor does it have the most amenities, nor is it in the best location...but it has great wi-fi, flat-screen tv, microwave, fridge, excellent hot free breakfast, friendly staff, comfortable beds -- what else do you need? The Chinese restaurant next store makes really good made-to-order food. I would stay here again.

Scared, sleepless night

We arrived close to midnight and was exhausted from our trip in. The hotel was within city limits, but a bit off the main downtown area. We knew this, though, and it was fine, considering we would just be crashing, then leaving early the next morning. But for almost the whole 6 hours we were in that room, we were very scared and disgusted. There were loiterers outside in the parking lots, there was yelling and doors slamming for almost an hour (and remember, this was a midnight), there was unidentifiable goo on the bedspread, and there was a hole almost all the way through the bathroom door. We did not feel safe or comfortable. I would Not recommend this hotel, no matter how late it is or how short your visit.

Don't stay here!

The room, especially the sheets, smelled bad. The bathroom wasn't very clean. Thee was a wierd sticker on the wall stating that there was a $250 fee for smoking in the room. And it's right next door to an adult novelty store. We were booked for 2 nights, but found another place for the second night; & were not refunded for that night, but it was worth forfeiting the price to find a better place!

Merrill Field Inn

This is a shabby appearing hotel in a tough, if central, location. The price alone is what attracted me. I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, very clean, interior. The two queen beds were comfortable, and the bedding and towels new appearing. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Made it out alive!

This hotel (motel) is situated around the corner from the Merrill Field Airport, and shares the same parking lot as a Chinese food restaurant (not sure this was open) and an adult novelty shop. Already skeezy, upon arrival. We checked in very late at night, having arrived on a 10:30pm flight, so we figured it wouldn't matter. Boy were we wrong! There was a hole punched in the bathroom door, a radiator that went Through a closet wall (ever hear of a Fire Code?!), unidentified goo on the duvet, and the mattress was wrapped in plastic (or at least it felt/sounded like that!) And then there were the loitering...locals?...who were shouting across the parking lot to each other from open room to open room. NOT a pleasant experience. And definitely Not worth the $132 per night?!?! Do Not Go There!! Stay near Ted Stevens if you need to save some dough. The closet proximity to downtown is Not worth your life and health! :(

couple trip

The hotel offers free airport shuttle, it was very good for our needs. Hotel is old, but better than our expectations. Staff are very friendly. Nothing wrong for this hotel with the money paid.

cheap and clean

When you first arrive the outside makes you want to turn around and go to another hotel, but once you get inside its clean and the staff is very nice. I would recommend because its cheap but they keep up with it.

Whatcha Want

I vacationed there to see my son that is stationed in Anchorage and to see surrounding area. Everything in room I tried worked excluding the clock on microwave [who cares?]. While on vacation I do not spend much time in a room. It comes down to what you want. If you want a clean room with hot shower. A room with a fridge, microwave, and tv then this is worth considering. I stayed during the week so the club across the street didn't seem to be a problem and the planes taking off from the airstrip wasn't too much of a problem either. There is some noise associated with that. My son stated he thought the room was better than one rented by previous family members at another hotel close by.

Merrill Field Inn Anchorage

Location very shaky, sandwiched between a dilapitated chinese resturant and stripper bar. Colorful people "hang out" in the parking lot and we had a strong feeling that there was some prostitution occurring. We reluctantly spent 1 night, then left the following morning and checked into the Puffin Inn in Anchorage, paid 20.00$ more per night, and wer very pleased with location and services. I do not recommend the Merril Inn. [...]

Great place for budget traveling.

The room has two queen size beds and it was clean. Hotel offers complementary breakfast and internet access in the lobby. It?s not a fancy hotel but it?s great for tourist with limited travel budget.
