Awesome nights stay. Nice and clean room. Fan switch was broken but that was due to the previous occupants not informing staff. Friendly staff. Comfy bed. Air con was nice & cool I'm not. I enjoyed the pool.

I booked this online and I was charged a fee of $98 when I arrived the lady on reception tried to charge me $128 because she thought I wanted a late check out of 1 pm. That was not the case but I did ask for a 10.30 am check out and had to argue to get that extra 30...

Wanting a weekend away at short notice, we googled and found not a lot available. We knew Anchorage was further away from the city centre than what we are used to but decided to give it a go anyway.

Travelling and this was a good location to stop for an overnight. Booked online for good value. Room was a little rough around the edges being an older motel but clean and comfortable. Found staff friendly and helpful. Wifi was good and television also

This motel was not worth $160 a night. We had 5 nights there booked, after 1 night we decided we would rather sleep on a family friends floor. There was holes in the walls, no hot water for a shower, very noisy and dirty. On the upside the bed wasn't bad. Would not stay here again.

This is the worst motel I have ever been in. We only stayed 30 minutes before i went back and got a refund. It was dirty cobwebs on the wall very old dated rooms. Was not comfortable to let my young children sleep there. If you have asthma I suggest you don't go here. The photos online are very misleading....
