Overnight stay
The room was old, run down and overall,a dump. Beds were ok but I would not stay there again.

4/10 Fair

Sad stay
We showed up at 3:00 and didn't get our room until after 4:30. The girls at the desk were busy and short staffed. So i tried to be understanding. But they just ignored us in the lobby very disappointing

Old and not updated but clean
Old and tired property…still rocking the 70’s vibe (or there about) when it was built and has not been updated. The shower curtain didn’t reach the top of the shower floor so water went all over the bathroom floor. And my room wasn’t ready until 5:30 PM way later than check in time. But the women at the front seat were pleasant and trying. For the $230ish cost of the room I wouldn’t recommend. But the room was clean and the bed comfortable and welcomed after camping in the wilderness for a week.

8/10 Very good

Good, reasonably affordable accommodations
Good, affordable choice close to the airport. Stayed here a total of 3 nights broken up into 3 different visits, each time check in and check out were smooth. We didn't utilize the shuttle but it seemed regular and was used by a good number of people each morning. Stayed in 3 different rooms, all were good and clean and we heard surprisingly little airplane traffic when inside the rooms considering how close to the airport it is. Continental breakfast is nothing to write home about but it was good and on time, opens very early actually compared to most places (5am-9am). Would definitely consider staying here again especially if just arriving in AK or the night before leaving.
