Reviewed 22 July 2014

I'm not kidding, the staff here was top-notched. Every answer was "Yes, we can do that for you." Rooms were clean and fixtures in good repair. This is a mid-priced (Alaska summer = $$$) motel so I don't expect much but this more than adequate...and the service still stands out in my mind, thanks.

Booked a room with 1 king bed as it was only a little more than the basic room with 1 queen bed. I have a bit of trouble getting my head around paying $150 a night at a Super 8, but it is Alaska in the summer. That being said, I was quite happy with the room. The furnishings seemed rather new. The bed and the upholstered chairs were quite comfortable. It was a non-smoking room and it did not smell of smoke. I could not say the same for the hall and I would have to suspect a smoking room would have been pretty bad. The black out curtains did their job

The building is a standard issue Super 8, no elevator if that is an issue. It's dead easy to find from the airport. It is about a half a mile from the Carlson Center and would be a good chose if you are in town for an event at the center. The route to the center is relatively pedestrian friendly, at least during the summer.

This place is in need of a remodel. The carpets in the place were just plain nasty. The bathroom were just ok. The beds were ok. The breakfast was really basic. I would not recommend this place especially at the 110. + price. Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

This is a prime example of the lowered standards you'll find in Alaska. Stinky old and worn out. 1980's accommodations with 2014 prices.

The room smelled like a jock strap- I'm not exaggerating. It was horrible. It was the only room left, and I desperately needed sleep. In any other situation I would have demanded another room, but due to this being the last room available had no option.

No refrigerator. No microwave. Just a table, desk, and prison issue mattress & hard pillow.

Pictures are screwed to the wall (through the frame).

My friend and I stayed here when there was no other room in town and at least the front desk gave us their last room which was a smoker's room and we were warned that it was a smoky and smelly room. So we were forewarned on that but its better then sleeping in the truck that night around midnight. So I am not going to judge the motel by that since we were forewarned.

On the whole, the room wasn't bad as I thought. It was clean as it could be, AC works well, the bathroom was clean and bed was pretty comfortable. The mattress was bit on the weak side. The coffee machine was this tiny thing and they were still using analog TV set. The carpet was clean but it had serious amount of burnt cigarette marks on the floor, especially between two beds.

My friend who made the reservation while we ate at Denny's next door didn't care for the staff who was taking the reservation at midnight. I should have just walk next door and done it personally. Man I talked to was pretty diplomatic and polite but the woman he talked to, was upsetting him considerably.

On the whole, this is a motel that badly needs upgrading and its rather overpriced for what you are getting.

Room Tip: Avoid smoking rooms at all cost unless you have no choice.
