After a tw day weather delay, we had to find a different hotel in Anchorage for our first night's stay. Trying to save a few dollars, I called and booked the Lakeshore Motor Inn (recommended by Frommer's). I, too, would recommend this motor inn, only if you are looking for "cheap". Our experience was not the greatest. Some rooms may have been renovated, but ours was like in a timewarp - the 60's. Not much of a continental breakfast either. We did enjoy the lobby area, but that was about it.
