Pick up from airport

I had to pick up my boyfriend from the airport late at night and had asked for a late check out and the girl at the front desk said they dont do that because they are busy in the summer and that if i wanted to check with the head housekeeper in the morning she could let us know if we could check out late. It was spring for one thing and sine i had to get up anyway to contact the lead we just got up and checked out. Also they were not busy, when we checked out there was 2 cars in the whole parking lot and online there were plenty of rooms available and we could have checked out late with no inconvenience to others coming in. I will not stay at this Best Western again. Bad customer service.

Aurora trip

We stayed here twice. Once in 2012 and again in 2014. Both times we just flew up, rented a car and stayed here to see the Northern Lights. After the 2012 trip my wife I took, and we went up again with my parents. The hotel is clean and the staff was very polite and helpful, they have Aurora wake up calls if you just want to stay close to the hotel to see the Lights. Which we did one night and all we had to do to see them was walk outside the side door and look up! It is close to the airport and we liked how close it was to a grocery store, waking up at supper time to eat, them napping so we could be up throughout the night it was nice to have the store close to pick up cheap and quick foods.

I like staying here because of the bed! It is not too hard like most hotels. The price is not always the best, but because of the bed, I get it when I can.

Great location. Relatively new facilities. Clean and well maintained. Only thing I missed was not having a comfortable sitting chair in my room--just a small table and straight back chairs. Great value for 3 adults during hight of alaska tourist season
