Recent guest reviews

convenient location for activities around town. good restaurant.

Just there overnight. Everything was fine. Late arrival. Glad restaurant was still open

Room was great. Large space. Unfortunately, we did not know the hotel was in the throws of remodeling. The noise began at 8:30 am. Also, the heater/AC in the room was very loud. We did inform the front desk when checking out that the heating/AC system desperately needs attention.

hotel was ok but my kid did not enjoy it as much since there was no pool for him to enjoy some summer fun when we were there. Breakfast was good but included in the hotel charge.

Very close to airport. Clean rooms. Close to Walmart. Staff friendly. Free Parking

Good location, quiet, clean, staff are friendly. I will come back.

super friendly place. I would stay there again without hesitation

We had an excellent overnight stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Walking distance from Moose's Tooth for dinner. The attached bar and restaurant to the hotel I find unimpressive. Easy to get out of town, toward Palmer or Seward from here. A minor haul to downtown. Easy parking, normally quiet neighbors.

Decent food at decent prices. Older facility in decent condition.

Since I was having work done at my home and fumes would be strong, I selected a facility close to me. It was convenient to check work at my home. Check in was good, room was clean and updated and quiet. Did not use the longue, but the dining for breakfast left something to be desired and I thought was overpriced for what they offered. Overall, I'd go back for the room.

Nice place to stay. A little on the older side but compared other hotels and prices, totally worth it.

We spent 4 nights here exploring Alaska before we left on our Alaskan land / sea tour. We loved it.

because we were arriving at 5 am we booked this hotel from the day before so we went right to our room and got needed rest after the redeye flight.

The rooms were fine, but I did have some problem getting the AC to come on. The wait staff (one woman) was terrible. She messed up the order, seemed annoyed that we were there and I had to track her down to order dessert. She was in the kitchen talking to her friends. Other than that, our stay was fine.

Was clean and location and parking was good.I would recommend friends to stay there

The room was clean but the hotel was loud, and when I walked in I heard the leaky bath tub faucet and it smelled stale like there was attempt to mask a cigarette smell, even though it was clearly labeled a not smoking room. For the cost of almost 100.00 I thought the room was not up to par.

Okay, If you are looking for a hotel close to the airport, it is good for you.

Check around the base of the bathroom floors. I cleaned part of ours. Lamp bases were dusty as well as table.

Rooms were comfortable and staff was great. Restaurant -food and service were great
