We stayed at this location in last week of July during our Alaska sightseeing tour. This hotel I by far the most terrible hotel I have lived in. We had booked three rooms for a large group and were appalled to see the inconveniences at every step of the way. AC or room fan was not working. There was a...

This is the worst hotel that I've ever stayed at. Our room smelled like smoke. There's no safety lock, the a/c was broken, the light was burnt out, there's no alarm clock or table lamp! You will not feel safe at this hotel. It's the most disgusting place! I even woke up to a couple fighting. This dump still cost...

We flew into Anchorage in the early hours of the morning we have made a reservation 4 months previous to our arrival. We booked this hotel because of its location, cheap rates and the main reason is because it provided a shuttle service to and from the airport. When we called the hotel they could not find our reservation. They...

Filthy halls & no maid service during the 4 nights I stayed there. The "Continental Breakfast" consisted of an ancient jumbo coffee pot. There was usually a homeless looking person sleeping on the couch in the common area when I got up and around. The police showed up one morning and arrested an intoxicated minor who had woke me up...

I haven't stayed at the Econo Inn however I have never had such an unprofessional encounter. I asked to speak with a supervisor or manager and instead the employee falsely claim they were threatened. Their staff has no regard to our hard working APD and our officers. Shame on this establishment.

The hotel was a good value for the money and the employees were friendly and helpful. The rooms were average, which was expected for the price. It was probably not the best location in Anchorage, but it was far from the worst. Within minutes of the train station, and has the best Japanese Restuarant attached to it! We would definately...

The staff gets the worst rating, for total indifference to guests' needs. Chosen for the price and that it has a fridge, its location borders on the "wrong" end of Anchorage, at a very busy intersection no less. Peeling wallpaper, uneven flooring, a stated no-smoking policy, although the staff and lobby area reeked of cigarette smoke, a big sign stating...

This is a definition of fleabag motel, but its a cheap stay for Anchorage so if you are on a super-tight budget then this might be the place to stay if you have a high tolerance for nasty. The room smelled of Ben Gay and urine. The mattress was worn and the sheets had a brownish patina. The place is...

The room was terrible: no AC, filthy under the bed, the shower leaked, and a heavily traveled street was right outside the window. We had reserved two nights and they did not make up our rooom after the first night. We asked for our money back so we could go somewhere else the second night. They wouldn't do it, but...

We stayed here as it was one of the few hotels under $100 in Anchorage. As I was getting into bed I noticed there were hairs on the sheets, as if they had not been changed. DH went to the lobby and they sent someone to change the sheets within 20 minutes but the damage had been done, it felt...
