The staff is really friendly but the room was really dirty and falling apart.

The property is right off the end of the runway so pretty noisy. The area around the hotel is pretty run-down there continental breakfast with kind of a joke I did meet the owner the new owner and he said he's trying to fix it up that's why I gave went to

The owners/staff was terrific! They were incredibly sweet to me and my little boy.

Not a chain--owners run the place, they are very nice folks

This was a great place for me to spend the night before my flight. It was clean, safe and had a friendly, helpful staff. When it comes to accommodations around 100 bucks, it can't be beat! I stayed in a few "bargain" hotels in Fairbanks and Anchorage. Read reviews before you book, there are some real dumps out there. If you pay $100 in North Carolina you can usually expect decent quality, not in AK. I highly recommend this motel, if you just need a no frills, straight forward place to spend the night.

The staff are very helpful. They have a shuttle service and breakfast. I was treated like a friend or family. I am coming back

Old hotel, but the staff there are very nice and friendly, breakfast are plenty. Had a nice small talk with the old lady at front desk.

Clean, helpful staff, but old and needs updating. Not best of area but convenient to walk to huge Fred Meyers. Thin walls with noisy neighbor all night. . .

Room was minimal. Down the block from a adults only girly show, at the end of a out of the way place-a bit creepy. Walls separated people but not the noise-felt like someone was in my room in the middle of the night. Old, used, bed and bathroom were clean but rug and outside seemed dirty. Bed has plastic mattress cover underneath-not comfortable.

Dear Guest, Thanks for choosing to stay with us. We've just purchased the property and have made significant improvements already such as an exterior renovation, new carpet, brand new (and REALLY nice!) linens, new asphalt, grounds keeping and hydroseeding, overhauled the continental breakfast options, new flat screen TV's and much, much more. All things to improve the guest experience. We've had contractors in all summer as fast as they can get us scheduled! As you can tell, we are very excited about all of these improvements, we have more planned, and we cannot wait to welcome you back on your next stay so that you can see how much we have improved. Safe Travels,
