“Affordable, Clean and Near Downtown”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

If you're looking for a full service hotel, or for a great view, move on. The building is plain, there is no lobby, and you lug your own luggage. But if you're looking for affordable and something to serve as a base for travel, it works nicely. It's located about 1/2 mile from the downtown / visitor center. There is no shuttle from the airport, so if you don't have a rental, it's a $20 cab ride. When I arrived, I walked into a small area that serves as the reception desk. My reservation was ready, and I took my luggage up one floor to room 103. I was pleased to find a roomy suite, with separate kitchen, separate sitting area with TV, bedroom with queen bed, and bath. To be sure, there was a deck as well, but the view was of the next building wall. Everything was clean, and the manager was very helpful with information about places to eat. Turns out the Mexican restaurant within about a block is quite good.

This has been one of the best suites we have stayed at!! Clean rooms, flatscreen TVs, all the accommodations you need for a kitchen! It's really like home away from home! A great location you're right down the
road from downtown Anchorage Fifth Avenue mall literally walking distance! Ilona is a
phenomenal general manager if you ask you shall receive! She really goes out of her way for her guest! Only place we will stay in Anchorage!!

The pictures showed a modern room. The furniture was old, bed lumpy. the manager tried to move us to a better room but it still felt dirty. The area was shady and the with only one person on site there was no service. If you are on your own and can handle the area then you may find this place Ok. My wife did not and we got out.

Even though hotel closed at midnight and we didn't arrive until 2am, John made arrangements for us to still get our keys. The room was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. From the outside, and part of town its located, we weren't really sure, but ended up being surprised at the convenient location for areas we were visiting. Would stay here again. Not sure if there is AC, but the weather was overcast and rainy when we were there, so didnt need it. Great talking with you also, Ilona !

Creepy with 1960's mismatched furniture. Bad surrounding area. Springs poked through the bed and futon was worn out. We quickly determined we could not stay in a place like this and immediately left but of course they charged us anyway. There was dirt in the corners of the bathroom. We felt dirty when we left and showered as soon as we found a nicer hotel. It was worth losing money just to get the heck out of Dodge.

We stayed at Anchorage Uptown Suites for two nights at the beginning of out trip and one night at the end of our trip. Of these three nights, two if them were the worst night sleeps we had during our entire two week trip through Alaska.

Our first stay (due to a mix-up in rooms) was in a suite, which appeared to simply be a furnished apartment, which could be rented for short or long stays. We arrived late at night and went straight to bed. There were no black out curtains in the bedroom, and it was nearly daylight-bright all night long. We could hear every single sound that was going on outside. Later, we found that the windows in the kitchen had been left open and only the kitchen blinds had been closed, allowing our room to be inundated by street noise, blaring train whistles and cigarette smoke from neighboring balconies. The second night, desperate for sleep, we actually dragged the mattress from the bedroom into the comparatively dim living room in order to get a decent night's sleep.

Our second stay at Uptown Suites was in a room with a king sized bed and jacuzzi (all reservations were made months in advance and I wish we had canceled the second stay after our first bad experience). The room was a third floor walk-up, which was not a problem for us, but would have been and issue if we had more luggage. The jacuzzi tub had a sign saying that it could only be filled to one inch above the jets (about 6 inches of water). This is enough water to bathe a child, but makes it useless for an adult. The thermostat in the room was difficult to control, and we overheated during the night. Just as in the previous room, a window had been left open by housekeeping. This helped with the heat, but the noise from another room's 2:00 am party kept us awake. There was no one staffed at the hotel to make them be quiet.

The beds in the room were comfortable, and the rooms were clean, but filled with slap-dash repairs (old exposed low voltage wires, water spraying out sideways from the shower, unpainted patches on the wall, etc). The location is walking distance from the main part of town. Unfortunately, the nice bed and location could not make up for all the hotel's faults. We would never recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Hotel is three floors with no elevator, ask on what floor your room will be located. Higher floors...
