I spend my first Night in Anchorage at this hotel. I Got picked up (free shuttle for hotel guests) 15 min after arrival, the guy driving the shuttle was takling about Anchorage, all the sights in Alaska etc. which was great. the hotelrooms are Nice and clean. I wouldn't mind staying here again
This hotel has been a Guesthouse for....not that long. It use to be the Days Inn and before that the Howard Johnson's Plaza. It use to be not that great but it has been totally remodeled and now I very much recommend it. Summer time in Anchorage brings hotel rates that soar well over $300 for basic rooms at chain hotels. Even the Motel-6 is $150 in the summer which is pretty much a cruel joke. I choose the Guesthouse because of its perfect downtown location, right across from the Sheraton (advertising $356 rooms) downtown and because of the pictures on the Guesthouse website. I reserved a top floor balcony room and was very pleasantly surprised by the brand new everything. The room itself was HUGE, at least 3x bigger than a traditional room. It included a big new fridge, microwave and coffeemaker, nice big LCD TV, new clean carpet and very comfortable beds with quality bedding. The balcony was great, nice view right down 5th Ave, the main street through downtown Anchorage. Not only was there a desk but also a dining table and two chairs. The bathroom even had a floor to ceiling tinted privacy window looking out across the city, an interesting touch. All this for a pre-paid rate of $140, thats a GREAT deal for Anchorage in the summer, its not just great, it doesn't get any cheaper. I will definitely consider this hotel in the winter too, free parking instantly saves you at least $10 more per day compared to other downtown hotels.
the price and location were great, and the staff friendly. The bedding was clean. good place to stay
It was my first time in Alaska. I already knew I wouldn't be spending anytime in my room so I chose to be economical. The hotel is located downtown, 2 blocks walking distance from everything. The 5th street mall, gift shops, tourist attractions, and all the restaurants. Yes the hotel is older but is functional and does its purpose. My room was exceptionally clean, over-abundance of towels and all the things you need. There was also a new flat screen TV in the room as well. The front desk staff was AMAZING, I encountered 3 different women and they were all super sweet and helpful. Gave me driving directions and pointed me towards the best restaurants and bars. I never had a problem finding parking for my rental car, they do have 2 parking lots located in the back of the hotel. You will not be able to see your car from any of the rooms since it's a little ways back, but my rental was safe. Truthfully, there was no need for a rental car for this hotel. I never realized how close the hotel was to everything. I basically only used it for transportation to/from the airport. (which the hotel has a free shuttle for that!!) There was also a small business center in the lobby with a computer and printer. If you are using this hotel for touristing around Anchorage and just place to sleep it's perfect.
