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!!
