The fridge didn’t work, which ruined our food. The bathroom has a barn door which led to zero privacy. And the bed with pillows were extremely uncomfortable

View of trashcans with a sliver of the lake. Delivery trucks make quite a bit of noise. It was exciting to go outside and watch the sea planes land.

Lakefront

Pros: Location, decor, friendly and efficient staff.
Cons: Rooms with lakefront view, a pool/hot tub. Real beds with access to side tables and lighting. The Murphy beds did not allow for this.
Location: We did day trips to Wasilla, Palmer and then south on the Old Seward Highway. The Solstice Festival in Downtown Anchorage. Enjoyed it all!
The hotel was very nice and comfortable. We stayed three nights, while taking care of family business and sightseeing. The hotel was very convenient and in a beautiful location. The staff were all very courteous, knowledgeable and accommodating. We had dinner in the Fancy Moose Lounge two nights, and the food was excellent and the waitstaff quick and efficient. We really enjoyed our stay.

Misrepresentation

First off the picture with the great view is photoshopped. No, I repeat no rooms have a view. Secondly the restaurant is way overpriced and the food is subpar. I would equate this to a motel 8 and is certainly not conveniently located to downtown. Also The staff walked in on my room 3 times over two days. I ended my trip early I was so mad about this hotel. Save your money don't get ripped off like us and go elsewhere
