Three of us stayed here for two days during a business trip to Anchorage. The hotel is within 20 minutes of the airport, and has a restaurant on site. The exterior is in good condition and clean. The front lobby is spacious and well laid out. The staff were universally friend

Clean, updated rooms and hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. You get a credit voucher to the restaurant for breakfast which is way better then the complimentary breakfasts at other Best Westerns.

This Best Western is in need of a lot of remodeling, but in the deep of winter, it could be a welcome place to stay.
The staff is friendly, but the place is old, limited by its age and use. The rooms have old furniture and carpeting. Our easy chair smelled like cigarettes. There

The staff of this hotel has to be some of best I have ever come across. Their attitude is great, do anything they can and super friendly. The other thing is the beds, I prefer a firm bed and they have them. If coming to Anchorage I highly recommend it.

Do they provide transportation from the airport to the hotel with a mindnight arrival?
Hannah318, Hello! Unfortunately we do not provide a shuttle service. Taxis are available at the airport around the clock and ride sharing services are now available in Anchorage as well and can be accessed by downloading the appropriate apps on your smart device. We certainly apologize for the inconvenience caused by not offering this service!

Do the rooms have air conditioning? Thanks!
Yes! All of our guest rooms are equipped with both heating and air conditioning! Even in Alaska it can get pretty warm with the long days of sunlight glaring into the window. We want to make sure our guests are comfortable when relaxing in their rooms no matter the weather in our area!

Is free breakfast included included?
Yes! As of May 15, 2017 we have implemented a new breakfast program here at the hotel. Every qualifying rate receives up to 2 breakfast vouchers for each morning of their stay. These vouchers are redeemed in our onsite restaurant, 36 Bistro, and are good for any entrée on the menu! We hope our guests enjoy!

Is there an airport shuttle available? If not what are typical taxi costs between this hotel and the airport?
Thank you for the question! Unfortunately we do not offer a shuttle service to and from the airport at this time. As for a taxi fair, it is usually pretty inexpensive for the 5 mile one way trip. That being said, Alaska is very unique as far as road conditions are concerned. Due to this, I don't want to provide a specific price and mislead you. Many different variables, weather, animals, time of year you visit, etc, can effect the duration of your trip and thus the cost. I do apologize that I can not provide further specifics but I do hope this will suffice for the information you are seeking. We hope to see you soon!
