If I had to tell a friend about this company I would say they are great company too rent from. I could not give them 5 stars because no company is perfect I would if I could give them 4 and 3/4 stars. They always show up to my apartment in a timely manner and return my phone calls within 24 hr unless its an emergency then its usually within an hour or so but there's only been one of those when a pipe broke in the middle of winter and they had a plummer there in about an hour or so and fixed the problem and cleaned up the mess, this made me very happy and I got my carpet cleaned FOR FREE...lol. Gotta look at the bright side. The other times in the 4 yrs I've rented from them there has been a few small issues, like a pipe being clogged (their there the next day and fixed it) or no hot water (had to schedule a pluming company to come out and install new water htr because it went out and was no good). There prompt action and attention to detail is fantastic and I will rent from them again if I move but I'm pretty happy living right where I'm at. If you are looking for place to live I recommend NOVA.
When I moved up to Anchorage, I needed a place to stay for a few weeks until I found an apartment. The Ingra House was the answer! Thier weekly rates were pretty much the lowest in town. The building seemed brand new and my room was extremely clean. The rooms were small, but I didn't mind as long as it was quiet and private. They call thier building a 'rooming house', but I would consider it more like European lodging. The bathrooms are shared via the hallway, but are private to use behind you (lock the door, etc). They had kitchen facilities that I didn't personally use, but were stocked with pots and pans for other guests to use. I wish there were more of these types of lodgings around the country. If you intend to stay for a week or longer, this is a good place to look up.
I lived here for a year with a buddy of mine, in the unit directly above the landlady. Real nice place in a convenient location. The few times we needed anything from maintenance, they were there quickly to resolve the issue. Etta (aforementioned landlady) was real nice, always helpful. Only issue I ever had was that sometimes I think she would run errands during office hours? Not entirely sure, just know there were a few times during my stay when the office was supposed to be open, but I could not find her. Either way, reasonable prices, plenty of closet space, and a location that you really can't beat. Miss my apartment there, but I'm moving out of state and so could not keep it. Shame.
