    We were taking the excursion train in the morning, and the hotel provides great shuttle service to and from airport and to and from train station. Breakfast starts early enough to accommodate people on the train. Room is big and comfortable.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Ship Creek Anchorage

    I'm staying under the bridge down by the river ...

    from

    Literally, you are under the bridge by the river, but there is no van or Chris Farley. I had a large room on the third floor - much larger than what I expected from a Comfort Inn. I doubt all rooms were that size. I had no trouble with noise and the hotel was is easy walking distance to the downtown area - although the staff were more than willing to give me a ride to and from there. Prices were reasonable. I stayed four nights and by the fourth morning the complimentary breakfast had lost most of its appeal. The maid service was less than perfect, but the service at the front desk (and access to the Internet) was quite good. When I reflect on my trip to Anchorage, nothing about the hotel comes to mind - exactly what I would hope for from a two-star hotel.

    Satisfied customer

    from

    I have stayed at Comfort Inn for several trips and have been very fortunate with each stay to experience quality service. I have been grateful for the type of service because it has allowed me to relax and enjoy my trips without stress. I plan to continue to stay there and look forward to my next visit there.

    Perfect Stopover !!!!!!

    from

    great stopovers between rail trips to and from Talkeetna and Seward. Clean rooms and helpful staff and worthwhile continental breakfast. Walking distance to the train station although they have a shuttle if you need it.

    Good Hotel

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in early June for two nights. We were honeymooners in Anchorage for two days before boarding a southbound cruise out of Whittier. This was a nice hotel. Clean, friendly, nice location. The creek or river right behind the hotel is a hot spot for Salmon fishing, there were always people out there trying to catch fish. We had a jacuzzi room and it was awesome. The jets were great. Our first night there was our first experience with Anchorage daylight. We were amazed when it was 12:30 at night (or in the morning actually) and it was still completely light outside. There are thick room darkening curtains in the rooms so the daylight wont bother you but it was fascinating.

    I would definately stay at Ship Creek again.

    Very Pleasant Stay At Comfort Inn Ship Creek

    from

    Just spent 3 nights at this location, the Inn was clean, the Staff very helpful and cooperative. Breakfast was standard but adequate and plentiful.

    Shuttle service to shopping area always available.

    Airport Shuttle runs every hour to the Airport and will come anytime for airport arrivals. Hotel was always filled to capacity. Make prior resevations.

    The weather added to the enjoyment, sun every day, high 60 - low 48.

    A Pleasant Stay at the Comfort Inn at Ship Creek

    from

    My family and I stayed at the Comfort Inn at Ship Creek for 2-nights in June. The hotel is in an excellent location if you want to go fishing. There is a creek right behind the hotel, where guests can go salmon fishing. The hotel lends out the fishing poles and there is a shack that sells licenses. It was about a 15-minute walk to the farmer's market and in the same area there are restaurants and shops.

    The hotel provides a free airport shuttle and the continental breakfast, which included biscuits and gravy was adequate. There was a small pool, fitness center, and business center.

    The only negative about this hotel was the staff seemed not too friendly, but not completely rude. The hot tub was not working, as there was not even water in it, only a caution sign.

    Overall, our stay at the Comfort Inn at Ship Creek was pleasant and I would recommend this hotel.

    Nice rooms, but service needs some work

    from

    This hotel is very nicely decorated and maintained. Our room was enormous with plenty of room and comfortable bed. The problem was the construction directly outside our window started at 8am and was so loud we had to leave out the room. I let the clerks know about it, and how unbearable the noise was but they just shrugged their shoulders. Also, a coffee pot in the room is great, but cups would have been even better! :)

    Horrible C/S

    from

    My family and I stayed here for a couple of days and checked out, and returned a couple of days later for 2 more nights. I had reservations for both stays, but when I returned for the second stay I was informed my rooms had been given away and there were no more vacancies. The only explanation I was given was that my credit card was denied, even though my bank had no record of them attempting to run it and it worked fine for the previous stay. I was left to find rooms elsewhere on a late Fri. night with a family in tow. The worst part was that I couldn't get any information on why this happened. My theory is that someone showed up willing to pay double so I got fed some B/S. I wouldn't stay here if the rooms were free! This hotel ruined what was almost the perfect vacation.

    Clean rooms

    from

    The motel is on the water although not as peaceful as advertised pictures will lead you to believe. It sits in a tucked away industrial corner of the city. The rooms are very nice, the breakfast is great, a nice money saver. Bagels and muffins, hard boiled egg, fruit or make yourself a waffel, yum. The hot tub was not working when we stayed but it was in process-- looked nice. Over all I enjoyed this motel, it was a nice change from the typical alaskan pay twice for half.

    A hidden gem

    from

    Having stayed at most of the downtown area hotels , i decided upon the Ships Creek Inn - I will be checing in again next week.Located on a quiet side of town , and next to the creek it was a great location.The lobby was warm, inviting and cozy ( a log cabin feeling ) rooms were clwean and spacious and pool area was also clean.Breakfast was above average for type provided by most hotel chains -

    A rainy day was a good day to run errands. The camera store for a new battery and charger. UPS to deposit checks. The post office to mail checks. Finally finding a parking place. We strolled downtown in the drizzle. There is a 5th Avenue Mall with a Nordstrom and a lot of smaller good stores. Buildings are interconnected so you don't get too wet or …

    After a nice breakfast at Turkey Red's in Palmer we stopped at the visitor center and then drove eastward on the Glenn Hwy. The Independence Mine was not yet open so we did not make that side trip. We drove about 100 miles to the exposed edge of Matanuska Glacier. The drive is very scenic back up into the mountains and has lots of areas for locals …

Is he the purser on this flight? I hope he’ll be working the First Class cabin the entire flight! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such an attractive FA on one of my flights. So many young FAs were wiped out of the airline industry in the past decade with the huge drop in flights after ...

I would really like to try that, but I suspect that it is harder than it looks. After we finished, back to the Long Rifle Inn for a little local beer. (Ok - Gary's definition of a local beer is Heineken, but the rest of us drank the local brew).We went back that same long road ...
