“Perfect for catching the train and close to downtown too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Very well located for catching the train to Denali or Fairbanks - a very short walk or the hotel shuttle will drop you.
We took the shuttle to the station, checked in and left our bags, then walked back to the hotel for breakfast followed by a quick walk back to the station to catch the train.
The rooms and facilities were good and the breakfast adequate.
We walked downtown and back - probably about 10 minutes - slight hill going in.
Very happy with our choice.

Pack your plunger just in case the staff are too busy at this Comfort Inn. Unfortunately, we ended up with a plugged toilet and we were unable to get anyone to answer in housekeeping or maintenance and when we went to the front desk for help, we were handed a plunger and sent on our way with no follow up as the whether or not we got the problem fixed. The front desk guy was on two phones at the same so the poor guy was obviously quite busy but there didn't appear to be anyone else available to help him with maintenance/housekeeping problems. If it weren't for the convenient location to the train station and the complimentary airport shuttle then the rest of this review would have went down the toilet.

Robert Colette,

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. I am very sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with your room and our lack of customer service. I can assure you that this is not how we conduct ourselves here at Comfort Inn as you can see by our other Trip Advisor reviews. We pride ourselves on our guest service and have spoken to the entire staff about the issues concerning your stay. I deeply apologize for how your situation was handled and if there is anyway that we can make this up to you please do not hesitate to contact me at the hotel. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your summer.

This is a very nice hotel, located right on Ship Creek where at certain times of the year you can see the salmon running. However it is down a steep hill from downtown Anchorage (1/4 mile). Luckily there is a free shuttle next door at the Ulu knife store that runs every half hour most of the day. The rooms are spacious and clean. The service was good and the complimentary breakfast bounteous. It is very close to the railroad tracks, but our room was on the creek side of the building so we weren't bothered by any noise from the railroad.

Room Tip: On the creek side.

We stayed in Comfort Inn for one night before our Denali trip and two nights at the end. Our first stay was perfect, large quiet room with two comfortable bed on the second floor. Our second stay had a problem we were given a room on the third floor that had a loud humming noise which appeared to come from the window end of the room. We checked that the air conditioning was off, and found the noise continued and that the whole end wall was resonating. They changed our room for a quiet room unfortunately we had to repack and make this change well after 11 pm when very tired from returning from Denali. My advise would be to check for noise if you are given a room on the third floor before unpacking.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms at the back of hotel towards the end of corridor are quiet.

Jeanne86 thank you for your comments on Trip Advisor. I am so sorry to hear that you had troubles with your returning trip to our hotel. I am glad that our night staff was able to accommodate a room move for you but so sorry to hear that you had to move rooms in the first place. I have my maintenance staff looking into the humming noise that you experienced on your returning trip and I hope that the 2nd room that you were moved into worked out better for you. Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your Alaskan vacation. Have a great rest of your summer!

Clean, spacious rooms. 4 pillows per bed - 2 hard, 2 soft. Wifi was fast! A/C was good to have in addition to opening windows. Provide transportation from bus downtown. Also next to train station.

Staff was friendly.

After staying close to Denali national Park, it was like a luxury hotel!
