Inlet Tower Hotel And Suites

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The view from the room was great. The staff was very blunt and unwelcoming. The room was clean and well kept. However the bed seemed very old and worn out. It was a good deal for the price but I would not pay full price to stay at this hotel.

The staff were very rude and inconsiderate almost abusive and there was absolutely no heat in the building so it was very cold I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone and will not be staying there again!

Easy overnight in Anchorage. Clean, convenient, shuttle service and friendly staff.

The staff was great! Could use some upgrades like new mattresses they were saggy. Devote could also be upgraded the grounds looked better than the rooms.

good hotel,staff friendly, no problem with luggage because of elevator, give it three stars.

Nice place, clean, nice bed, no homeless hanging out, however ,small bathroom and old huge TV in room. No food available at 2am when we got in, which is understandable, however no recommendations from front desk except pizza delivery that ends at 2am. Hotel is in a weird area I thought, like a residential hood, no stores or businesses near by to walk to, that I was aware of. We went searching for hotel vending machines, book said they were on a couple different floors, however, the first place we went, there weren't any. Another guest pointed us to the basement where the laundry room was...vending machines there. We didn't stay long, basically slept and left early next day. Their airport shuttle was really fast to come get us. I think this place is just too expensive....in my opinion.

2 hour check in was terrible, requested service took until next day

That says it all, 2 hour check in. No desk assistance

The hotel is located in a convenient location near downtown, but it is older and showing neglect.

Great hotel, clean, awesome view of inlet. Nice staff!!

Hotel staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The rooms could really use some updating...ours was a bit musty, tv was old, tub was funky (I wouldn't have washed my kids in it.) the bar/restaurant was really cozy and a fun atmosphere. My one big complaint is the lack of breakfast. They have a cafe that sells muffins and burritos and such, but it was not of good quality and highly overpriced. I would skip the cafe food all together.

My husband and I booked our hotel through Orbitz and chose the "pay now" option. When we arrived to the hotel, the clerk informed us that they had cancelled our reservation, because of our late arrival, even though we had already FULLY PAID for the room. They refused to refund us and told us we had to call Orbitz. We called Orbitz and they too would not refund us. The room was nice and clean. We were not impressed with the professionalism of the staff.

There's nothing exceptional about the Inlet Towers, but I've never had a serious problem their either. (I've probably stayed there half a dozen times.) It's in a good location for access to downtown Anchorage or for getting around town by bus. There is a good semi-gourmet food store with good coffee, salad bar and take-out options across the street.

Perhaps, I would call this a dark horse hotel...people know about this hotel or they don't... it is close to down town Anchorage and near the bus stop that will take you to the airport. I had a good time.

Needed a cheap hotel over Christmas break, found what we needed. The hotel staff is not necessarily very friendly (this could've been just the Los Anchorage thing), but the room was clean and big. Internet got interrupted a few times when I ran skype (complaining that something extremely illegal is being done).

Inlet Tower is renting whole floors for longer term use, and tenants coming back from bars loud and rowdy.

Staff didn't understand English. the housekeeping supervisor was not Very helpful when we asked for toilet paper she gave us a box of tissues. she seemed bothered and inconvenienced by us asking her for help

The Inlet Tower is about as cheap as you can get in Anchorage without going to a dump. The location is pretty solid (about a 10 minute walk to downtown), and most rooms have a pretty awesome view (especially if you get a room overlooking the inlet). The only real problem with the Inlet Tower is that it needs an update. Everything is obviously a little on the old side (especially the tube TVs in many rooms), but the amenities a good (free parking, free wi-fi, fridge in room, etc.). It's a decent place, with a solid location, and better than average amenities compared to many place in Anchorage. Don't expect to blown away by the quality of the place, but staff has always been friendly and the place is clean and comfortable.

very friendly staff, quick check in too! close to downtown, great views.
