“OK for what we wanted”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

It was not an encouraging start when the reception staff denied any knowledge of the fact that we would check in early, having just come off a cruise ship at Whittier early in the morning. However, the reception staff were very helpful and friendly and found us a room.
The hotel, however, is shabby and looks in need of redecoration and new carpets throughout the public areas.
Our room was better. It was big with a double bed and a pull out double couch and a kitchenette.
However, the decor was tired and, like the hotel itaelf, could do with some tlc. The wifi was excellent and bathroom adequate.
The staff could not have been more helpful and the fact that the hotel ran a courtesy bus to the airport 24 / 7 was a big attraction and the main reason why we had stayed there. It was less expensive than the big name, branded hotels nearby and adequate for one short day

Good location as opposite much more expensive Captain Cook hotel.
Was allocated a disabled room for no particular reason and is located on ground floor and next to reception and laundry but these points did not cause noise problems.The room was well appointed and very roomy. All staff very friendly. There is a shuttle bus for train and plane connections but must be booked and times are set.
A basic breakfast available in lobby is provided.
Anyone visiting Anchorage must visit KStreet Convenience Store which is opposite this hotel. A real gem for snacks,pizza odds and ends

Clean, comfortable and a good value. We stayed on our first night in AK and booked another night for the end of our stay. The rates go up June 1st, so the second night will cost us 60% more, but that is true of all hotels I checked. Breakfast is minimal, bagels, muffins, oatmeal and hard boiled eggs. The coffee and orange juice was good. There is no breakfast room, so you have to take it back to your room. Convenient downtown location and overnight parking included. If you want to leave your car during the day it is $10.

We usually stay at another downtown hotel when visiting Anchorage but could not get reservations because of the start of tourist season. The manager of our former choice hotel referred us to the Voyager/Rodeway Inn. It was a very pleasant surprise!

The room was spacious, had a view of the inlet and had everything we could want. Each room has a little kitchen area with a fridge/micro and bar area. It is even nicer because they use real coffee cups and glasses; not the paper stuff of so many chains now. The bed and linens were high quality and the television and all furnishings were nearly new. This old hotel has had a major facelift and has been well done!

It is within walking distance to the mall, great restaurants and the complimentary breakfast is adequate. If things run out....ask the friendly staff and they happily replenish.

The one drawback is the parking situation. The website says there is parking but that is a bit misleading. The hotel gives you a pass from 5pm-9am to park in the lot across the street. You can purchase one additional day for $10/day. I hope the hotel changes this situation for parking.

We will stay here again and not just when our "former" favorite hotel is full.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room on the side facing the water!

I was a little skeptical only because of the name but I was really surprised....pleasantly. It's a very basic hotel but has all the amenities that someone who wants a central location for a great price. All the staff at the front desk are very friendly and very attentive. The rooms are huge and very clean. It's not a resort so don't expect the gold key treatment or a lot of other amenities like a spa or anything but if you're here to see the area and want a great central location for a great price, you just can't beat this place.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same. Don't expect the Presidential Suite....

I stayed here three times with a friend in March 2013. Each time our room was very large and clean. The location of the hotel is also excellent and it was one of the cheapest places we stayed in Alaska. I cannot comment on breakfast as I did not get up early enough to sample it (it finishes at 9am). However, there was no seating for breakfast so I imagine it was just coffee and takeaway items.

Please note that the hotel offers free transfers from and to the airport and the train station. This is not something I was told before we arrived so we paid for a taxi from the airport. Also, on our final day we had booked a transfer to the airport at a certain time. The transfer arrived half an hour early and then left before the agreed time. When I complained to the manager about this he was incredibly rude. We ended up having to pay for a taxi again.
