“My stay in Anchorage.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

I spent about 30 nights there - it was all good. Personnel were properly attentive and helpful. The elevator was a little slow and the shower water pressure was a little low. But everything else was great.

The hotel is really well located and easy to find (not too central and central enough to be surrounded by shops and restaurants. The housekeeping staff is really friendly, but don't expect a great service from the front desk clerks. Overall I still had a great stay because a great time in Anchorage.

I had to rush up to Anchorage for a family emergency and ended up staying at the GL. They were updating the halls & common areas when I was there early December, but when I opened the door to my room was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, nicely updated and worked great for me. The shower had the best water pressure I think I've ever had in a hotel.

On the day that I checked out of the hotel, later that evening while having diner with my wife I got a phone call from Sheila head of house keeping that I had forgotten my laptop in the room that I had stayed in. She said she would lock it a safe place for me till I could retrieve it. Great staff, clean rooms. 10 out of 10

The price that I paid was worth the room that I got. It was clean, had good internet access and a nice climate control option with the heating unit. My only issue was that it didn't have a shuttle. And when you are traveling to Anchorage on medical or errand running trips, transportation options make it a better stay. But if you have a rental car or your own vehicle the hotel is a good and clean option.

This Anchorage, AK Best Western is an excellent place to stay. I arrived late at night but still had a brief check-in experience. During my stay, I've enjoyed the meals I've had in the hotel. The room is clean and well maintained. My only 'complaint' is that the water pressure is just a little bit low. But, all things considered, my stay has been an excellent one.

Good place to stay, restraunt in the same building, quiet and peaceful at night...Polite staff....Traveling for medical, so this place in centrally located to all the hospitals. They have a quaint menu in the restraunt, could add a little more.
