Aurora Inn and Executive Suites
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Nome
Reviewed 31 August 2015

By the time you step off the airplane, you'll know that you won't find anything of excessive luxury in Nome. Judging from outside appearances, this hotel is one of the better places for one to stay in this town. Located towards the Eastern end of Front street, this hotel is walking distance to a few restaurants (Subway) and bars. Although, who are we kidding - almost everything in this town is walking distance. The front rooms of this hotels face the water - the Bering Sea. Inside the rooms, the beds were comfortable and clean. Linens and furniture was rather worn out - but considering the cost of getting things up to Nome, househood goods here work overtime. Room had a full kitchenette with cutlery and plates - which made the stay cheaper - you would buy groceries at a store in town and make food in the room. Although there was no stove in my room, there was a commons room on the first floor with a stove and additional cooking tools.

The only issues I had with the room were wear related. My room's window would not close, but that issue got fixed after I asked the staff, who were friendly during my entire stay. Cabinet doors were loose and one fell off. Walls are thin and I could hear other guests' televisions at some points during the evening.

Overall, this was a good place to stay in Nome, but would probably qualify as a 1.5-2 star motel elsewhere in more urban areas.

Room Tip: Rooms on the backside face the parking area, with elevated noise levels.

Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Suite located on front of hotel was huge, with an apartment size kitchen. Housekeeping kept it very clean. All restaurants are within a 10 min. walk.
Top of our list the next time we're in town.

Stayed for two nights here at the Aurora whilst discovering Nome. The boss gave ys some good ideas of what to see and do. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. Good wifi and free coffee and tea in the lobby area. Rental cars are readily available for rent at the lobby.

Hotel on Front Street in the middle of Nome town. Nice welcoming lobby. Very informal & no elevator, so you need to carry your luggage up at least one flight of stairs.

Rooms are large & comfortable with good size bathroom en suite. Hotel has no restaurant or food service, not even breakfast, so be prepared to walk a few blocks to a local restaurant.

This is the only conventional hotel in Nome. The clerks were helpful and friendly and the room was 4-star for Nome, probably 3 star compared to the lower 48. There was free wifi, nice TV and comfortable beds. The Inn is located across from the visitor's center, which is a must-see and a wealth of info. The only problem in our room on the 2nd floor was that the tub did not drain.
