Arrived at 5.45am, got maybe a couple of hours sleep, went and dropped off my bags at the motel, couldn't book in until 3pm. Walked about 3 miles towards town to get rid of the kinks from the plane then jumped on a bus for the princely sum of $1.75. Short trip downtown, wandered around a bit then caught the trolley bus for a tour of the city. …
I drove to Anchorage today. Before leaving Homer I drove out on the Homer Spit, which is a 4 1/2 mile long narrow strip of land jutting into Kachemak Bay. The spit is crowded with campgrounds, RV parks, restaurants, bars and fishing charter companies. It used to be home to a lot of bald eagles, which were attracted here by the "Eagle Lady" who fed …

... a winter you are one thing (mind not working so I'll tell you that later), but if you have been here for several years you are a "Sourdough"!
Coach wasn't ready until 4:30 today so we wasted a lot of time waiting for it. Not so much fun when you only have a limited time in an area.
Off to Danali tomorrow and I am very excited about seeing that...weather...PLEASE??????
... ladies, he decided he would walk around and explore downtown. He started by visiting the husky near the start of the Iditirod Race which is also in downtown Anchorage (and then spans 2,450 miles through the state to Nome - whoa!). He loves people watching, and thoroughly enjoyed watching the Native Alaskans sing and dance in their native language the "Hokey Pokey".

Historical Traveler Reviews America's Best Value Inn - Executive Suite Hotel Anchorage
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 -- 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.
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
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.
clean place with oversized rooms--will pick-up and drop you off anywhere you want to go
