The lobby of this hotel is impressive. The rooms are not. Very poor conditions for the price. I was a travel agent that booked a group of rooms here for 3 nights. The lobby was very impressive and I thought that the rooms would be of equal condition, but they were not. The rooms were very large for a hotel room but that's the best I can say about it. Almost everything in the room had some sort of damage or stains. Furniture, walls, window, curtains, everything. The room smelled really bad too. We did not complain because after investigating multiple rooms from my group, they all were the same. There would have been nothing the staff could do. The Good: The hotel offers a fantastic shuttle service to most areas of downtown, including the airport and train station. We were very appreciative of this, as explorers. Staff were super friendly and helpful. The lobby is awesome and they serve fruit water and cookies. The breakfast sausage and eggs were barely edible but everything else (waffles, pastries, yogurt, coffee, etc.) were awesome. The rooms are very spacious for hotel rooms. The Bad 1. There were stains on the walls, and wallpaper was torn 2. The ground-floor room's window did not lock because the entire window frame was falling apart (Room 112). 3. The curtains were badly torn. 4. The carpet was filthy and we couldn't walk around without shoes. 5. The upper edge of the shower was filthy with dust and grime. 6. Furniture was torn and severely scratched.

Pros: One of the staff (Kyra).
Cons: Keep her on the payroll!
Location: We took the trolley, which was not eventful. Loved our visit to the zoo. Went to 2 amazing restaurants (The Bridge, and Orso). Amazing seafood!
Kyra (I believe this is her name) was amazing and accommodating. She was extremely helpful and kind. She made this experience well worth staying at this Comfort Inn enjoyable.

Location is Everything

We stayed at the Comfort Inn only for one night. We found that the location was perfect. The hotel was walking distance to the Saturday market, the train station, and many restaurants. We spent our afternoon simply exploring Anchorage by foot.We had read that trains could be heard from inside the rooms. That was not our experience. The room was pretty standard but comfortable and we had no complaints. If you are travelling by train and want the ability to explore the city, this Comfort Inn is perfectly located for you!

Good price for a nights sleep.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
The location is a bit out of the way and the train horn is a little loud. The breakfast is nice and the room was fine. No frills or anything, but a good price.

I would stay again

I did not know what to expect, because this hotel was not here the last time I was in Anchorage and Ship Creek is not exactly the happening place in Anchorage. However, I was very surprised at the quality. The lobby was nice. Complimentary breakfast was great. The rates was decent for the time of year. The hotel was clean. And I loved the PayPer View in the room. I did have a run in with one of the front desk staff, but another staffer took care of my problem so I did not let that ruin my opinion. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a place to stay.

not so great

The hotel experience was not great..It was hot the entire time, even after having the staff assist us 3 times. The screen in the window was missing so opening the window allowed poor security. The management allowed someone to charge their RV by having an extension cord through the window at the outside door, totally defeating the purpose of the key entry door for security.The bathroom had a musty odor, the sink was cracked. The electrical wall outlet covers fell off every time we unplugged something. The fire alarm went off many times on 3 differrent days.There must have been heavy smokers in the smoking rooms, as the smell was always in the hallway. We had the do not disturb sign on the door and the maid kept knockingon two different days.The staff was pleasant but unable to fix our issues.The beds were decent.

The loudest hotel ever

My wife and i recently stayed at this hotel for a (get away) hopeing for a nice quite evening from home and children. I had reserched the hotel and its reveiws needless to say i was very dissapointed. it was like staying at a 1 star hotel with an fancy lobby! The room was run down and discustingly dirty., wall paper was hanging off the wall in places ,the baseboard heat register was half hanging off the wall, and the carpet was stained and musty smelling. \n There were people literly running up and down the halls all night long. I don't think that either my wife or I slept more than a couple hours total. I will not be staying there again and hope that more people read this so they don't end up as dissapointed as us.\n

Neat place

We had fun watching the fishing derby in Shipp Creek. The adjacent restaurant was great, the Ulu knife factory next door was interesting close to the downtown shopping. I would definately stay here again
