WARNING - Guest House Anchorage Inn is NOT what is represented on their website.
Our room was down this sketchy alleyway (which was dark even in the day), which had a pile of garbage right outside our door, the room had a terrible smell that gave my boyfriend a headache, the bed was incredibly hard and the TVs are very old tube TVs that had a blurry, crooked image which was hard to look at (not LCD tvs like featured in the photos on the website). My boyfriend and I had been travelling for over 24 hours and we really just wanted a hot shower and comfortable bed - we weren't even able to have a hot shower. It was only 1:30pm and there was no more hot water. It was a miserable start to our vacation, and luckily, we only spent one night there. We were returning to Anchorage in a week and had booked another night there, but we cancelled - forfeiting the amount we paid for the room, because it was just that bad. Service was also pretty bad - leading up the trip, I called to alter my reservation. I called 3 days before the trip to re-confirm my reservation - and I am glad I had. The reservation had not been altered like I was promised it would be. Got forwarded to the manager, who gave me an attitude. We should have taken that as a sign. My boyfriend and I are big travelers, having stayed in hotels, motels and hostels around the world, and we agree that this was the worse accommodation we have encountered.
There is a Sheraton and Hilton just a block or two down the road from the Guesthouse Inn. I strongly recommend those hotels over this one. I usually try to support smaller businesses, but in this case - BEWARE!
