My 2 adult sons and I stayed here one night. The room was one of the smallest hotel rooms I had ever stayed in. The view of Cook Inlet was nice. The beds were comfortable and the front desk staff was helpful, but I would not stay again.

InletTower, Manager at Inlet Tower Hotel & Suites, responded to this review

Hello, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. I'm sorry you were unhappy with the size of your room. We have several different room types here at IT with more spacious layouts, including a Double Queen Premium that are 310 square feet, and King Suites, that are 660 square feet that may have better...

We spent 4 nights here in April because of its location while we helped a friend move. Be warned: the heaters don't work so we were cold. When we asked at the front desk, we were rudely told the heaters are on timers. Another employee told us confidentially that they don't work, ever. We were given a space heater. The...

I booked this last minute because I live in Anchorage but was locked out of my house due to power outage and no spare key, plus it was dark and rainy! I chose it because it was inexpensive, free parking and near City Market/Kaladi coffee. I had been to the bar before and it is a nice, quiet atmosphere. Got...

I know this place very well, good location, easy going, free parking, great views.. a little dated, florescent lights a bit weird, but it's a nice old building, al ot of people from the villages stay here and it feels like a community. The problem for me, and it's made me avoid the place a few times, is that the...

Tom, Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us. I'm glad you noticed the coverage and such are improving on the Wifi, we did just spend a healthy chunk of money on a system upgrade.

I stayed here for 3 days. Rooms are incredibly dated...like literally1960's. The pillows on the beds were TRAVEL sized, NOT full sized pillows. Terribly uncomfortable. The room was not cleaned daily, just barely 'straightened' and one day, housekeeping never even entered the room. When I called to tell the front desk, they said they were sorry but all housekeeping staff...

Shelly, Thank you for your review, although I do have to question a few things left me scratching my head. We have housekeeping on staff daily until 5-6pm, and then a "houseman" crew that is here daily until 10pm to assist in cleaning rooms of guests who have left Do Not Disturb signs on their doors during the hours housekeeping...

We stayed 2 nights and again for three nights in June 2016. I chose this hotel because it is a in a good location while also affordable. The descriptions from other travelers still apply: Furniture, wallpaper and bathroom are outdated but functional. Kitchenette is there. I didn't need it but it's available if you do. A convenience store is just...

windlicht, Thanks for sharing your experience with us! I would say your review is one of the most honest and accurate ones I have seen in a while. While we are making improvements every year, we took over a property that hadn't been updated in a very long time in early 2012. I think you nailed it though. We try...

I'm not sure how or why this place gets a 3-star rating on some of the hotel booking sites, but this place is disgusting. I also have no clue who is writing the positive reviews on this site, but I question their authenticity and staying here recently. I paid for 4 nights and checked out well before my stay ended....

The staff who greeted us were friendly and very accommodating! The room was clean, beds comfortable. The bathtub was extremely difficult to get into.

btompkinson, Thanks for sharing with us. It sounds like you enjoyed your stay, and that is our goal with every guest that walks through our doors. Room tip for the future: the single queen rooms were equipped with Jacuzzi tubs a while back and thus have higher tub sides. Request a single King or double queen next time and you...

I stayed here 4 nights with my friend in July 2016. What I like about the hotel - elevators, air conditioning, self service laundromat, free use of computer and printer at lobby There's a decent supermarket just across the street where you also can get food and breakfast.
