“A great place to stay for the price!!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This is now owned by the Captain Cook hotel (and is called the Voyager, not the Rodeway), so the staff at the front desk thought that would lead to some improvements, but that the price would stay below $200 during the summer. I did notice a funny smell in the room when we entered, but after the first day I didn't notice it any longer. The weekend staff at the front desk was AMAZING. They will look up anything that you need, are helpful and always greet you with a smile. I wasn't so impressed by the front desk staff during the week. They seemed more annoyed by our presence. The rooms are HUGE. It was so nice to have a kitchen. We could bring leftovers back to the hotel and refrigerate them and reheat them in the microwave for lunch the following day. You can go across the street to the Captain Cook and they have a gift shop with snacks and drinks. There is also a convenience store across the street, but they seemed to have strange hours of operation. There is a small continental breakfast, but that's a bonus considering a lot of the other hotels probably don't offer it. You do need to take it to your room to eat it. The hotel is within walking distance of many places downtown, the museum, gift shops and the market (which is on Saturday and Sunday - over 300 different vendors). You can easily arrange for pick up from the hotel or the Captain Cook for the Glacier 26 cruise (which I highly recommend) or through Ascending Path for guided hiking. You're also relatively close to the information booth, which has some free shuttles to the Ulu Factory (I recommend buying directly from them because some gift shops sell Ulus that are made in China, and you want the genuine Alaska-made Ulu). Go inside the information booth downtown and they will give you all kinds of information about things to do, transportation and great deals. For the price, this is a very good hotel. I pre-paid my hotel and it was $152 a night - a steal considering the high cost of the Captain Cook. You can eat at both the restaurants at the Captain Cook. We ate at Fletchers and it was very good food. Any other restaurants in the area, check to see if you need reservations. Otherwise they won't be able to seat you until almost 10 pm. The shuttle to and from the airport is free, which is really nice. The only reason I didn't give it a top ranking is that I thought the bed was not very comfortable. I think you can use the workout facility and pool area at the Captain Cook, though I'm not sure of the price for that. Other than that, I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!!

Room Tip: Request a view of Cook Inlet. The hotel is only 4 floors so you don't get a great view of the i...

We stayed here 2 separate times during our vacation in July. The rooms are very large, have a full kitchen, and are very clean. They are a bit dated, and the sofa/pullout bed is sort of odd, but the beds are comfortable, and we had a very nice stay both times. Anchorage was quite warm when we were there, and we were happy to have A/C. The staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful. They have a small laundry room (1 stacked washer/dryer) that came in handy for us. We did not notice any of the "smells" that some other reviewers have commented on. The breakfast is truly continental, served in a tiny room, and you really have to take your breakfast back to your room, but it was adequate for us.

When we arrived at the airport, we called and were told where to catch the complimentary shuttle to the hotel. The driver was very friendly and safe, and gave a little commentary/orientation as he drove around downtown dropping people off. Since the hotel is now owned by Captain Cook Hotel, (which is located across the street), they no longer provide a shuttle to the train station, but they did call a taxi for us (arranged the night before), and the taxi was there right on time. It's a short drive to the train station, and cost probably $5-10.

We wound up eating at Fletcher's (in Capt Cook Hotel) twice, and had wonderful food and service. It's a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, and we had no trouble getting in (although we got the last table before the arrival of a tour bus the second night, so lucked out). We tried to eat at the brewery restaurant down the street twice, but the line was out the door.

The smell, cleanliness, food, etc was absolutely appalling. The people working here were amazing. Very kind and helpful. However, I would never return!! There are so many other aces to stay. Do not pick this hotel under any circumstances.

Hotel is in a great location, rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. All the essential stuff. Also staff are super friendly and helped out when our reservation got lost between expedia and the hotel. They let us check in and we went off to explore while they resolved things so we didn't waste time. Only downside is hotel is a little tired and could do with a renovation but compared to other hotels in anchorage it's a winner!

Rodeway Inn was centrally located and the staff was accomodating, friendly, and professional. We were able to walk all over downtown Anchorage in our short time there because this hotel was so conveniently located - close to restaurants, museum, performing arts, stores, etc. It is actually two blocks from the ocean also. The view from our hotel window (think it was 5th floor) was amazing - it was sunny, clear, warm day/night in Anchorage and had view of the ocean. When we checked in and got our room - we noticed it smelled musty and smoky. When we contacted front desk, they right away found us another room to try. We moved rooms quickly and all was fine. The room was large and kitchenette included (microwave, large fridge, etc.). The room and bathroom and its fixtures (shower, sink, etc.) all clean & newer. Air conditioning definitely worked well - probably not usually needed in Anchorage. Got AAA rate. All decent hotels/motels in Anchorage are expensive so I felt this was great value for smaller scale hotel in a great area of downtown.

On the plus side, a good location, free wifi and decent coffee. On the down side, expensive for what it is, a bit run down and smelly and, depending on which side your room is facing, noisy from traffic. One friendly staff member (male), one rather inefficient one (female) and a guaranteed late check out against paiement disappeared from their computer, so we had to leave mich earlier than expected. So, to be generous, I'd say that it's an OK place for a night before or after whatever, but not a hotel you'd want to spend more time than that.

Room Tip: quiet rooms do not face 5th avenue
