Today, we went whitewater rafting down the Matanuska River with Nova River Runners. It was a fair amount of Class III-V rapids that was glacier fed. There were some girl scouts in our group too, (so you can tell that these werenĄ¯t TOO rough) and one of their girls got some pics of us. Now THIS was some cold water. The temperature of the water was …
Dad and I had been planning this trip for about 9 months. Basically as soon as we could get confirmed plane tickets(using my Delta Skymiles). I ended up getting us both First Class roundtrip tickets into Anchorage and then out to the smaller towns in Alaska that we left from and flew back into. We left on the 24th, flew from Anchorage to Dillingham …
... the delights of modern technology. Day 3 was a bright sunny blue sky day and we took off toward home along the newly opened Overland Trail with heart-achingly beautiful views of the snow-capped peaks of the Alaska Range all around us. Even the elusive Denali, the third highest mountain in the world and usually obscured by clouds, made an extended cameo appearance. Being the first through the overland trail afforded us untrammelled access to miles of deep snow covered ...

We were told that this would have been our last opportunity to view Denali from North, but it is completely hidden in the clouds.
We kept following the Nenana. It is quite muddy now because of recent rain. It is usually a silvery color from glacial runoff.

It was a wonderful night and we all enjoyed both the reindeer and moose hotdogs, as well as the smoked salmon. The most different thing, is how late it stays light. It was almost 10:00 when we started to eat, but felt like 6:00. Again, everyone crashed......Tomorrow we pick up the RV and head down the ...

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.
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.
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.
