We (three adults) stayed in the little "apartment" below the motel/office. Two-person bed in main windowless room, and fold-out for one in the living area (which had high/long windows letting in the midnight sun, fortunately not a problem for the person sleeping there). Some might say it was spartan or worse, but it suited our needs perfectly!
No view (as noted), but convenient to walk to the national park VC and the Kenai Fjords Cruise dock and also to the downtown shopping area with its TWO lunch-buffet Chinese restaurants. We drove to the Sea Life Center, but it would be possible to walk there as well; it's only a couple blocks farther on.
Internet wifi was intermittent, but enough to keep track of e-mail almost every day.
Adjacent to the housekeeping-station: could hear the industrial washer/dryer in the morning, but it was not loud enough to wake you up. And the maids were handy to exchange towels or empty trash, without having them actually service the room (we like the privacy of Do Not Disturb sign).
As an apartment, it was more expensive than a triple-room, but ability to prepare our own meals offset that, and having a "place of our own" with separate bedrooms after a week in ONE room on a cruise ship made it just the thing!
