... the main road, plus black-and-white ducks, brown ducks, and possibly a loon. While we are watching the birds we check out a fancy low-profile caravan, of the pop-top style, but this one stretches as well as pops the top. In the folded condition, it looks exactly like a dog-kennel trailer. We stop at a lot of lakes, checking out bird life and beaver dams and lodges, but detect no beavers. Descending to the Maclaren River bridge (mile 93) we can see a strange three storey ...
... train station was directly opposite our hotel, so we walked back so Caroline could get in a shower before her flight. This was the only downer to the day, to be honest. The following day Johannes was out early for his bear fish-eating adventure flight so I had the day to catch up on errands. I checked out Maggie, dealt with a few issues John had found, did some more shopping, and made up the flight plan for the following day's flight to Cold Bay. In the evening, ...

I spent a couple of nights with my nephew Clint Fandrich on basic camera operation. Clint is an avid photographer and frequently shoots beautiful moon and star pictures. I thank him for his patience and information when I am clearly a novice at camera operation. I'm hoping for the opportunity to get off a good shot. I know my chances of a perfectly balanced artistic shot are low, ...

When headed back to the Car Return, I discovered that I had not put my little Swiss Army Knife in my checked baggage--I knew it would be confiscated. I knew where the post office is located at the ANC airport and I had prepared shipping labels, so I decided to send some of my purchases home in a box . . . along ...

The glacier we were on today, the Matanuska Glacier, is 26 miles long, but has left a riverbed that is much longer. On most of the trip up from Anchorage, you see where the glacier used to be and it is now a river.The waterfalls and streams are beautiful and the water is very pure and clear. I put my fingers in (just because) and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Anchorage
More than a Holiday Inn Express
July 2006. robert Taylor Southport U.K.
This hotel is more like a Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza than an Express. After our initial 4 day visit on stage 1 of our Alaska trip we were so impressed we returned 4 more times. The hotel was so welcoming with large rooms, luxurious beds and choice of pillows and a large complimentary breakfast in the mornings. The breakfast area was large and we never had a problem getting a seat even thuogh the hotel as full, unlike other chain hotels we stayed at during our trip. The airport is only 6 minutes away by complimentary shuttle the downside is you need a car for downtown. Would definately stay here again, weel done to the staff for making the hotel what it is.
Loved the HI Express, clean, great value and their "Continental Breakfast" was way beyond muffins and fruit juice. You had bisquits and gravy, bagels, fresh fruit, cereal and much more to choose from. The rooms were super clean, the staff was very friendly, and the airport shuttle was quick! We would definitely recommend this property for anybody who needed an airport location! We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
My husband and I stayed here on May 26 and June 1 and had two totally different experiences as far as the quality of room. During our first stay we had a king room on the third floor with a wonderful view of the mountains. The room was spacious, very clean and the bathroom was larger than you find in most hotels.
During our second stay, we were assigned a king room on the first floor with a view of concrete and car tires as the first floor sits below street level. As soon as we opened the door it was apparent that a previous guest had smoked in the room. I washed my hands and discovered that the sink was broken and would not drain. The lever to control the drain stopper was missing and the stopper was stuck in the down position. The room appeared to be a "spare" room they only assign as a last resort.
I went back to the front desk and requested another room. The clerk was completely overwhelmed as she was the only person on duty and was responsible for checking in guests, answering the phone, making reservations and dispatching the shuttle vans. I give her a lot of credit - she kept her cool and remained pleasant at all times. The hotel was out of king rooms so I asked for anything on the third floor. I was given a room on the second floor (which is the main floor) next to the elevator with two queen beds (although they were the size of double beds - not queen), with a view of the shuttle vans parked outside. Based on the location (right off the lobby and next to the elevator), the room was actually a lot quieter than I expected.
The complimentary continental breakfast is a nice touch as all meals are expensive in Alaska. The location is excellent - very close to the airport and accesible to Seward Highway.
I would stay here again - but request a third floor room at the back of the hotel so you can enjoy a mountain view instead of the parking lot.
Stayed 4 nights. Very nice place. Modern. Clean. Friendly. Very convenient to town and the nearby Village Inn and Wendy's and McD's.
Clean and comfortable
Hotel is very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. We left very early in the morning (for train trip to Seward) so we didn't get a chance to try the breakfast included with price of room. I would stay there again.
Thank you for a discount for Alakans in the Alaska Holiday Inn Express.
Being a person who uses a wheelchair, I check out the total accessibility of hcp hotel rooms. In this hotel, the carpet, bed height, chair available for transfers, dresser drawers, bathroom sink and toilet were good. Biggest and moist usual problem is the bathroom door. A full door rarely works in a hotel. The best solution is a sliding, pocket door or folding door and, in this room, a bi-foild door would work. The shower attachment was too far from the tub seat. The shower head post should be attached to the wall next to the tub seat. The mirror near the desk should be slanted out at the top so persons sitting can see themslves in it. When these details are made accessible, this suite wwill be sweet.
3 month stay
Stayed at this motel for a period of 3 months june 03-Sept 03 while working for the government at the Anchorage Airport. Found the rooms very clean with excellent maid service. The staff was very friendly and efficent in assisting me when I needed help, such things as laundry service, fax service, etc. The Continental Breakfast was very good. Indoor pool and weight room was quite adequate. I would recommend this motel to anyone. When I return to Anchorage for a Vacation I will consider this motel over any other in Anchorage.
Good place to stay
The Holiday Inn Express has always served my family well when we have a shopping trip to Anchorage. Rooms are a decent size, and the beds are queen size not a full. In the evening, the cookies and milk are served in the breakfast area, and then there is the breakfast buffet which is buffet food, but none the less is quite good and there is quite a bit to choose from, biscuts and gravy, boiled eggs, cinnamon rolls, bafles, cereal and juice, milk, coffee and tea. This is our usual choice for an overnight trip.
Stayed here for three nights. Much nicer than a typical HI Express. There is a nice business center and all the other amenities, except restaurant/bar of course. But there is a couple nice places to eat within walking distance.
The Holiday Inn Express turned out to be a great selection for our trip to Anchorage. Not fancy but fairly new and very well kept up. The people were very freindly and helpful in every way. The hotel is in a great location close to airport and just a few blocks from the float plane port if you want trips of that kind. Even this close you never hear the aircraft noise. Great location for hub of day trips. Also have nice Breakfast in morning.
