      Historical Traveler Reviews Americas Best Value Inn - Executive Suite Airport Anchorage

      Please stay away

      from

      I received this hotel as a 2-star selection from Priceline. Ouch. Just lost a lot of faith in Priceline on this one. As previous posters have noted, this hotel is old and dirty, and is not worth saving a few bucks. Trust me, I am a thrifty person, so I am willing to sacrifice to save a couple dollars. This is not the place to do it though. The rooms are dirty, the furnishing are ancient, and even in the non-smoking rooms the cigarette burns are numerous. Yuck. It is also quite noisy, so you better be tired if you expect to sleep through the night.

      I will admit that the staff seemed quite friendly. The rooms were also rather large for the price, but we were too scared to use one of the beds. The continental breakfast was decent enough as well.

      But please look elsewhere for value. Some things are just not worth it.

      Total Dive hotel, stay away...

      This hotel is a run down dodgy motel. We had made a reservation by phone to spend our last night before going home to be near the airport. We had been fishing in Homer and had our frozen halibut and salmon to take home. I asked if they had a freezer to accomodate our fish and they said yes. I called several hotels to check prices and freezer availability. I picked this hotel as a lower price and airport close hotel. On our arrival, we saw 2 upright freezers and questioned the ability to fit our large box of fish and told the manager if he could not accomodate us, we would go elsewhere. He assured us he could remove shelves and fit the box. On checking out the next morning, we saw that our fish was not in the freezer and our box had been opened. The clerk stated they opened the box and took each peice of fish out and put it into the freezer. We were livid. They never tried to reach us so we could go elsewhere. They misrepresented themselves and opened our personal property. The clerk was a teenager and the manager was rude and very unprofessional. The continental breakfast was 1 banana, dried up carrot and celery sticks and boxed cookies. It was an absolutely disgusting. Pay more money and go to a decent hotel run by professionals.

      Cootie Cottage

      from

      We stayed in a ground floor room. I couldn't advise anyone to stay there no matter what the price! It was a cold night and we had to wait a long time to get someone to help us turn the heat on. He then told us we were "sissies."

      There was an overstuffed chair with the stuffing coming out and a soiled couch. The remote for the TV didn't work.

      The worst part was the sheets were paper thin and the bed made so poorly we couldn't tell if it had been slept in or not. Since it was late and we were tired, we did sleep in the bed but never felt it was clean.

      Unhappy

      from

      room was small. water could not keep the right temp. tv broke down and no came bck up to fix it....was told one price on the hotel and over charged. also checked after 2am and was told when we got there check was sunday but then got a call on sat and was told we had check out sat. very unhappy

      Don't stay on the ground floor in the summer.

      from

      This hotel provides clean rooms for a reasonable cost.  However, I found myself

      in a ground floor room that was hot and stuffy - no air conditioning, just a

      fan.  If I opened the window there would have been no security and anyone could

      have gained access relatively easy.   I insisted on being moved and they put me

      in a nice suite on the second floor for the same price.   While the rooms were

      fine, the halls are shaby looking, there is no elevator and big flight of stairs

      to drag one's luggage up.  However the free continental breakfast was

      substantial and there was free shuttle service to the airport.

      Not so best value for my money

      from

      I booked this hotel from hotels in conjuction with an airline reservation from Continental.I didn't research or shop around.All I wanted was 24hr pick up and return to the airport.I figured prices had to be comparable.However,the price I paid seem high for this borderline seedy hotel.The van came to the airport quickly to pick me up.It was a beat up van.Dented,torn seats-the driver was very slow to help me with my bags.The hotel itself was right next to a Mc Donald's with a bright light shining from it's parking lot into my window all night.The hallway carpets were torn up to give a great first impression.My room was okay,tv was in the living room but not the bedroom.I've heard that the remote control is the dirtiest part of a hotel room,but this one was so scuzzy that I had to touch it with a paper towel.The workers were friendly,breakfast stale.Other guests were going hunting and fishing.Just seemed a high price for a below average hotel.There were others nearby that might have been a better choice.

      Don't Let the Name Fool You

      from

      Don't let the name fool you -- no executive would stay here. While the staff was friendly and attentive, the room left much to be desired. I left after the first night.

      The suite wasn't clean by most standards. Around the floor edges there was dirt and dust and morsels of food. Most top surfaces (for example, lamp bases, stove hood, television) hadn't been properly cleaned for quite awhile. The kitchen was filthy with dirty cabinets, stove and oven that haven't been cleaned in months, and a dirty coffee maker. In the bathroom the shower walls seemed a bit scummy and the toilet had urine stains.

      The furniture was well-worn and uncomfortable. In bed I rolled to the center of the mattress. The living room sofa, chair, and lamps definitely should have been retired long ago.

      From what I could gather, Executive Suite caters primarly to longer-term renters who are not always in town, such as oil company workers who work on and off up on the North Slope, but who may not plan to permanently relocate to Alaska.

      Executive Suite is not recommended for the tourist traveler.

      No way

      from

      Our room was a double. It was very musty smelling. Furniture was spotted with what we didn't know. Very dingy. My friend took a fall on some wet stairs---EMTs were called and no response from management what so ever. We really would never recommend this place.

      One night too many

      from

      My wife and I stayed for one night in March 2003. We asked to check in early, but the room wasn't ready. That was fine; we went out for a leisurly lunch. We came back shortly after check-in time. They hadn't even started on the room. 25 minutes later we were given the key.

      The room smelled strongly of cleaning fluids and the smell didn't fade much after leaving the windows open the rest of the day. It still smelled the next morning, but I had the sense that it was now a permanent odor we were detecting.

      Our room was next to something that emitted a high-pitch noise throughout the night. The room was also dark, aging, and not totally clean. The TV remote didn't work. On the plus side, we were able to check out early with no hassle.

      Large rooms

      from

      clean place with oversized rooms--will pick-up and drop you off anywhere you want to go

After dinner it was so beautiful out that the boys, Steve and I decided to go up to Flattop. We just love it up there. There were quite a few people and we met a couple from Rochester, NH and a small group of people from Wales who live one town over from where I was when I did ...

We follow the large Gulkana River, visible at times deeply cut into the glacial gravel base of the valley. We cross the large Gulkana Bridge, and park to walk back to take photos from the bridge.
