Worst. Hotel. Ever. Worst one I've ever stayed at anyway. And I've stayed in guest houses in rural Asia. In short: all the pervious reviews are NOT an over-exaggeration. It was gave the impression of being just better than a drug den, yet not as good as a halfway house. Nothing like advertised, although when I asked about breakfast, they did point me to a six pack of Sam's Club muffins and a Thermos of coffee. I will say this: the front desk was very nice. However, maintenance did wake me up twice because they said they were checking on a smoke alarm that clearly wasn't going off. They were not so nice. The room, of course was dirty and run down. Burn marks on the table, ceiling fan was disgusting, fridge was busted up, etc. Will absolutely not stay here again.

I don’t ever write negative reviews, but this hotel was so disappointing, I felt I had to. There were people loitering by the door 24/7, there was no breakfast (free breakfast advertised) any of the 6 days we were there, floor had clearly not been swept before we got there, the room was never cleaned/trash never taken out all 6 days, road noise is terrible, sharpie writing on the walls of the room, there were people out in the common area microwaving, buying drinks, and talking until 2 or 3 in the morning, and the walls were paper thin and we could hear the room above us all night. I understand the need for cheap motels. I get it. This is clearly a motel that allows long term tenets who don’t have access to typical apartments. They don’t try and hide it. I was just really disappointed that the pictures on their website and all booking sites DID NOT MATCH THE ACTUAL ROOM AT ALL. I don’t mind that these motels exist, but if I had seen an accurate picture or a list of the real amenities, I would never have booked a room. It was just my spouse and I, so we stayed for our whole reservation, but if we had had our daughter with us, we would have left immediately. The real kicker was that one morning at around 7 a.m., a woman screamed so loud and so horrifically that we were afraid to leave the room and later checked the news to see if an attacked had happened. The moral of this story is, look for a different motel. Stay here only if you have to.

Nice Place

I have stayed at the Econo Inn and had a very good stay. My only complaint is for those that have had a bad experience is. Quit your complaining and move on with your life. All Hotels make mistakes and learn from them.

Worst of the Worst

Scheduled for 3 nights could only stay one. Full of drunks, desk clerk super rude, room filthy, no TP had to beg for some, if there was a zero rating that is what I would rate it.

Econo Inn-They just bump you off....

My husband and myself were supposed to stay at the Econo inn in Anchorage on August 18th. Our flight was delayed and we arrived late in the night. Meanwhile we called the inn many times from enroute to ensure that there would be a pick up at the airport. Once we reached Anchorage we were told that the Inn was overbooked that day and told that expedia overbooked us etc and moved to the nearby Travel Inn. Firstly we did not book through an online travel website. Our bookings were made via telephenone talking directly with the manager and confirmed reservations were obtained. \nThe alternate accomodations at Travel Inn was in a vdespicable condition with broken bathrooms and beds. We were charged the same amount of money for filthy living quarters. We will never ever make our stay in Econo Inn and will advise our friends and family to do so.
