it was alright

first impression was extremely bad. Hotel was not open, had to call from pay phone to get into a room. Person they sent tried to charge me again for room & actually called me a Liar when I showed him my flight itinerary & confirmation papers, then gave me a room that had roaches everywhere. Had to spend the night elsewhere. next morning, new clerk apologized and gave me the suite I was supposed to get. internet only worked in office & no air conditioning or fans. I was there for my only daughters Wedding. and since the Wedding went well, it was all worth it. The daytime female clerks were very nice, but the man on the first night was Despicable, hateful and very rude. I feel they should have reimbursed me at least the first night since i couldn't stay in the room due to bugs!! I have NEVER in my life been abused as i was the first night and they are lucky I didn't file charges against him. and yes there were witnesses.

the only good thing about the hotel other than the day clerks was that it was pretty centrally located so you were close to major stores, food places & gas stations. I didn't take photos, sorry

royal suite lodges

Please check your hotels and motels before booking them. I knew I was in trouble when my shuttle pulled in and the parking lot was full of kids. It is the type of motel where people live who cannot afford other housing. The term suites was a misnormer. There were no plates, utensils, coffer maker or anything else. I called for a coffee maker and they sent one with no filters or coffee. The light bulb in the fridge did not work nor the one over the stove. The only good thing about it was that it was clean, fairly quiet and within walking distance of the marathon finish line which was why I went to Anchorage. If you need someone to check out your bookings, let me know and I will be glad to do it for a price.

Get what you pay for...

Knew ahead of time this was going to be a "cheap" motel, because of the price, but was surprised at how minimal things were. This hotel has potential but...the "room" was the size of a 2 bedroom apartment, complete with a kitchen and living room, but there was NOTHING in this place. No cups, no soap, no towels, no shampoo, nothing. There wasn't even a towel rack in the bathroom. The two bedroom closets had not a hanger between them and the bed mattresses were very well used and uncomfortable. The windows were cracked open and could not close. We used this place to sleep after a long series of flights up from the lower 48 and that is all this place is good for...

Worst Place to Stay!

This is by far the worst place I have ever checked into. It was so bad, we checked out without even staying the night. We had to find another place to stay last minute. The place looks like people live there and there were people hanging outside the rooms smoking with their shirts off and BBQing with a lot of small children running around the parking lot unsupervised. When I looked in the room, it smelled like it was as old as it looked. The bathroom was not clean and the couch that was in the living room looking like it had been picked up from off the street used because it had stains all over it and smelled bad. The floor was bumpy because it looked like the tiles wanted to come off of the floor and it could be a tripping hazard. Overall, I think this place is more families looking for a low rent place to live temporarily. It should not be listing as a hotel or even a motel. It wasn't even cheap to stay there.

"Nothing to brag about"

Made use of local hiking trails. Hotel was sub-standard with no air conditioning.
