Recent guest reviews

The staff were all wonderful during my stay. Had a late check out with no fee or any issues.

Was nice but the temperature control was not working so our room was way to hot Also parking for the hotel sucks. Staff was nice and helpful

I rented 4 rooms for my group. Several of the rooms were not especially clean. The beds in my room were a choice between granite hard and sponge soft. Not being Goldilocks, I was dissatisfied that there was not a 3rd selection. The entrance smelled strongly of cigarettes, even inside the door. The lobby was clean. The staff was very nice. The stay was inexpensive and close to where I needed to be.

Very dirty. A long black strand of hair laying over all the towels (I have short blond hair). Hard to find the entrance and the parking is awful. The front desk staff was very nice though.

Wife loved the laundry -- large washer, large dryer, quick operating. Room very nice, comfortable, quiet. Friendly, helpful staff. Free coffee in room and in lobby. Convenient walk to the heart of downtown Anchorage. Microwave & fridge in the room. Free parking on-site (a bonus for downtown). Free shuttle to/from airport. Short walk to car rental, museum, Saturday market, downtown mall.

Simple and clean. Was very happy to stay here and would stay here again.

Was an ok price for the location comfortable stay

Carpet dirty and well worn. Unusual amount of traffic outside room well into the evening. Not worth the price.

Friendly staff willing to help. Hotel undergoing painting & improvements in lobby showing desire to improve. Rooms adequate and comfortable but not fancy. No continental breakfast only coffee & tea, etc.

GH was the best price. I booked easily. Front desk was friendly and thorough, explained info well. Parking easy. Free Breakfast at quaint rest. across street. Fairly nice view from Windows. Totally worth cost. T stars in my opinion

Close to downtown but not in a nice area. Many homeless and bums hanging around the hotel. Complimentary breakfast offered at a nearby restaurant with such bad ratings that we didn't chance going there. Bathroom floor was sticky and bathroom door didn't close without a battle. Parking was very limited. Prices are high in Anchorage but this was way overpriced for what you got. Would never go back.

This hotel is accessible going downtown,Seward Highway,and going to Fairbanks.The room were in was clean and spacious.We were upgraded into a room with 2 TV sets and with kitchenette without asking.thanks for good accommodation,we stayed for 8 nights.

The front desk staff was excellent! The room was atrocious. Hair was in the bathtub. A bottle cap was on the floor and stepped on causing an injury. Carpet is unravelling in several places. Sheets were old and the beds lumpy. Parking was awful including staff allowing overnight stays to park in the 15 minute wait spaces. Homeless people were allowed to come in and sit in the lobby. Breakfast was included and outside of the wait to get in, was good! Convenient location to downtown.

This location is awesome! The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and comfy. My home away from home.

It is in the middle of downtown, right near the open market. The staff were ok, the weren't very helpful during the stay and had no presence other than at the check-in. The trashcan had no bags in them (hotel policy?) and the beds were rarely made. The free breakfast at the restaurant was good but repetitive.

Being rather pressed for time, I booked this hotel without first looking at the reviews. Once I read the complaint reviews of the: excessive noise, cleanliness, condition and the neighborhood derelicts, I immediatley considered canceling and rebooking at The Sheraton a block away for a lot more money. However, as stated, being pressed for time, there just wasen't time. So, here is my review: Although it is probably not as nice as the Sheraton, overall, it is really not a bad mid-level hotel. I would easily compare it to a Best Western Plus type hotel. Furthermore, I did not see or experience anything negative that I have read about this hotel. It is clean and very well kept and it does shows. My only complaint would be that an hourly down town shuttle would be welcomed. It is a good seven block walk to where you want to be spending time. And let's be honest, not only in this neighborhood, but most of Anchorage is a pretty rough place to begin with. Passing the homeless and derelics to get downtown is not always a pleasant experience.

The inn is exterior and interior inn and unfortunately, those two buildings are not connected.

very good location,close to everything,walk everywhere hotel stuff is friendly

Room smelled bad, even worse when air/heating unit was turned on.

Would pick it again. Room seem clean and maintained. Location / quality / price is great.
