Hotel shuttle quickly picked from Airport. I picked this hotel as i was renting car from downtown next day and this hotel location seemed nice. Room had 2 twin beds. Clean and full of things like TV, Refrigerator, Microwave, Coffee maker etc and a locker. The moving space was less. A nice place to sleep.

Enjoyed my stay!
The room was well maintained and housekeeping was also good. I enjoyed my stay.
We have been ripped off
The room rate on our VISA account was twice higher than the rate when we checked-in. We have not checked our receipt when we checked-out. We realized that we have been ripped off when we received our VISA statement. We tried to dispute our bill with the hotel staff but they did not return our calls. So, please watch.
Not a bad place to stay for a motel
Stay in Days Inn for my first visit to Anchorage, read all the bad reviews about this motel but when I get there, it is not as bad as described. It just like all the other Days Inn motel anywhere in the States. You cannot expect too much for a motel with the price you pay. Room is clean and Staffs are friendly. I would recommend to anyone who need a budget stay and yet a descent place.
Ughhh! What a dive!
This Days Inn is really a dive. It's one of the 5 worst places I've ever stayed. At $160 a night during peak season, it easily has the worst dollar/quality ratio I've ever seen. The rooms are dingy. The bed is a sling. There's no AC. There are no screens on the windows. The outside rooms suffer from road noise. The courtyard rooms suffer from noise from folks who don't realize that just because it's light out at 2:30am, doesn't mean you can shout to each other. The only nearby restaurant is a Country Kitchen. But, lucky you, there's a porn store just 2 blocks away. At one point, I checked my bags overnight. Upon my return, they informed me that they couldn't get the door open. I couldn't get my bags until the next morning. The morning I left, the deadbolt had broken on someone elses room. They had to climb out the window it order to leave their room. Good thing they were on the courtyard side.
One the positive side, the staff are friendly and the wireless Internet connection is rock solid. (Also, while they say that the Internet access code is good for a 24 hour period, the truth is that they didn't change it the whole week I was there.) There's an OfficeMax next door with cheap film. The shuttle is free. Also, there's an Avis rental car place within walking distance. Taking the hotel shuttle, then picking up a car downtown saves you the airport surcharge.
Bottom line? Unless you need the absolutely cheapest room you can find, don't stay here!
Pass on the Days Inn
One word comes to mind about the Days Inn in Anchorage, Alaska: Seedy. If you don't mind bars on the window, doors that don't lock well, rooms that are scuzzy, shoddy service, and drunks sleeping in the lobby, then stay here. Yuck, Ish, Boo, Hiss, Spat!
Good Rate - But I didn't feel safe!
We booked the hotel because the rate was so good. Felt like the place was just dark and creepy - and didn't feel safe coming and going from the hotel. Room was okay, clean.
Did not have a good stay here
The outside rooms (facing the street) are noisy. We had one, and we had to ask to move to one of the inside rooms. If you are noise sensitive, I highly recommend you do not stay in one of the rooms with windows on the street.
The place was just generally too noisy for us. Even aside from the street noise, we heard a lot of noise from the neighbors that was very disrupting to our attempts at sleep.
Next time we are in Anchorage, we just need to suck it up and pay bigger bucks for nicer accomodations. Our attempts to go cheap in Anchorage have resulted in some pretty unpleasant nights there.
Loved the location
This Hotel was the cleanest and had the best hospitality I ever had. the girls at the front desk were very helpful and willing to go the extra mile. I was there for the Fesitivals in march of 2004 and Had the best room there was for the dog sled races...
Hot and Noisy. Don't consider this hotel!
After spending only six hours in Anchorage and three of those in our hot, noisy hotel room, we checked out at 11:00 p.m. and flew back home. This hotel has no air conditioning and yes, air-conditioning is sometimes needed even in Alaska. The street noise was unbearable so opening the window was not an option. After moving to an "inside" room, the courtyard noise was just as bad. Many guests had their room door propped open to try to get some cool air. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, even though Days Inn gives it it's top rating - 5 sunbursts.
If you're staying in Anchorage during the summer and paying full price for hotels, don't bother with the Days Inn. You might as well stay at the Millennium or the Marriott. Off season the Days Inn has some great rates ($39 once) and it becomes a reasonable place to stay. It's within walking distance to downtown and the mall. The rooms are nothing special but always seem clean. They have improved the lobby area so it looks cozy.

... like my Alaskan reindeer pizza and Christopher's halibut and bacon pizza. I ate all of my spicy pizza and we still have some of Christopher's left over. The pizza place has a nice cream shop next door that served fireweed ice cream made from the roots of the fireweed. On our way home we stopped by a ski resort to check out some of their hiking trails. It was 11 by the time we got home so we went straight to ...

When we were 264 miles from Anchorage, we crossed the Susitna River. When the bridge was built in 1921, the bridge was the 2nd longest, single-span bridge next to the bridge built across the Mississippi River. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
For miles and miles we traveled beside the Susitana River. The river has the milky color of glacial water (‘tho it could just be churned up by recent rains). It ...

So if your in it for the fun of the game head straight to the roulette table. If you are like me- stick to video blackjack. You sit there for an hour, lose ten dollars and get 4 free drinks.

... the Alaskan Travel Industry Association who was taking us to our hotel. We went to collect our luggage but unfortunately it didn’t arrive, neither did quite a few passengers who had been on the BA flight. We were told it was coming up on the next flight and would be delivered to our hotel. That was a relief as it was full of my thermal clothes which I knew I would need once I walked outside. It was very cold and so much snow.
