Recently stayed here twice and was happy with the hotel and the location. It's on Spenard, a short walk to some great inexpensive restaurants, and not far from the airport. My only complaint was regarding the hotel airport shuttle. It's inconsistent at best. On arrival the first night we were told it would be 45 minutes as he'd taken some people to the train station. We therefore took a cab. The next morning we thought we'd booked an airport shuttle for 6:30 but the driver was leaving again for a different destination and wouldn't take us to the airport. We again took a cab. The next time there (a week later) I was told the shuttle would be 6-7 minutes. After 15 minutes I called the hotel again, they said "sorry, the driver had to go to the bathroom" and in fact it took another 10 minutes before he finally arrived. We were exhausted and really wanted to get to our rooms, and would have again taken a cab had we known it would be such a long wait. They do shuttles to downtown anchorage and the farmers' market, and I asked the desk when that would leave again (was told 15 minutes or so). Then when I went back down I learned that someone had needed to go earlier, so they took him right away and weren't going to be going again, so I missed my shuttle. The person I talked to was pretty blase about it and said I could take the bus which wasn't far from the hotel. That wasn't the issue, but that I was told a departure time only to learn that they'd changed it without letting me know.

It is cheaper compared to others, owner Mr.Ajit Singh Minhas and every staff is very very helpful, friendly and co-operative for every need. They have given us early check-in, late check-out and above all have not charged for 1st night when we could not check-in due to flight delay. 24hrs tea/coffee/juices are provided free, you may get some bread, butter, muffins etc. in case of emergency, unbelievable but it's true that Mr.Ajit & his team don't charge for any of these, their gesture and helpful approach makes them different from others. I would love to stay in any property to be owned and managed by them. You will get pickup & drop facility to Airport, market or any place, also to book car/cab for any trip, you may go through Mr.Ajit as it is much cheaper, in my case, for a group of 4, he has arranged a nice cab for Seward at a price cheaper than public bus or train. I wish Merrill Field Inn all the very best.
My mother, sister and I stayed here in june of 2014. The many reviews I read of negative remarks originally scarde me. But as budget wise travelers I chose to try it out. It was a great decision. We were checked in immediately upon arrival. After a long stay at the anchorage airport that was great! We were welcomed to the hotel, after the shuttle picked us up, and our rooms were clean. Breakfast was decent. Our bellies were filled. The shuttle even dropped us off downtown at the summer market later in the day! (Beware of prices in the market for souvenirs. ...go out and venture the city once done with the market...cheaper souveniers)Ok, back to hotel. Its worth what you pay and two stars. Expecting glamour is ridiculous but, quality of envirnoment and amenities are just right!
My wife and I were fortunate enough to make a four night reservation at the Alex Hotel in Anchorage. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and that bed was SOOO comfortable. Shortly after our arrival in Anchorage we had to make a significant change to our travel plans which required us to stay in the hotel for nine nights instead of four nights. Hotel management could not have been more accommodating if I had owned the hotel; they were able to confirm a nine night stay instead of four, even during a time of heavy booking. What a relief it was to have a room available when we needed it! We will look forward to staying in the Alex Hotel on our next trip to Anchorage.
First let me tell you a little about us there were 4 of us staying in one room we were there do to a tragedy that happened to my very young nephew, this was a very trying and hard time for our family. The moment we arrived at this hotel The staff was fantastic and management went above and beyond in helping us with everything we needed. The room was great bed’s real comfortable and breakfast is very good. I have stayed in many hotels and have been treated very well is most all of them But the people working and running this hotel is the best I have ever experienced. I will defiantly be staying at this Hotel again on my vacation visiting family.
I got a really good price for a very clean and spacious room. They have nice beds and nice amenities in the room. There was a heating problem, but the hotel staff did all they could to make it better (i.e. providing fans, etc.). The staff was wonderful and very solicitous helping us to navigate this new town. They told us where to go and what to see, and often printed out a Googlemap and directions for us. They even pick you up at the airport and will drive you to and fro your rental car agency. The only negative is the real modest breakfast. They do serve a lot of stuff, but ....We would certainly stay there again. Worth the money.
Very unique. The lobby has some very comfy MIB white egg chairs that are super fun to sit in. There was coffee in the morning & fruit & cereal for breakfast, small kitchen area for guests to use to cook by the lobby dining table. Our room was really comfy & clean. The bed was a nice big queen with a country style comforter. We also had a nice table with 2 chairs, a dresser that had open storage space on one side & a beautiful sink & mirror well lit right outside the shower & toilet room, unstated! Thank you Jennifer for a beautiful comfy weekend.
Probably the best bang for your buck in Anchorage considering tourist high season in anchorage brings in insane prices for even the most absurdly located hotels. The rooms are clean, the water is hot, the air conditioning works well and the staff are more than willing to help you out. This location isn't the nicest area of town but Anchorage overall is not that nice of a city. I had to get started somewhere in town and the staff helped me out a lot, can't say anything nicer about the owners. The breakfast is good as well.
This hotel is an excellent value. Deluxe breakfast, very nice rooms, comfy beds, clean. We stayed here on 3 different nights during a 2 week trip to Alaska. They were in the process of renovating the rooms. We must have stayed in the new rooms because all of them were really nice. The shuttles to and from the airport were very prompt. An added benefit is that the hotel is half a block from a budget car rental office. You can rent a car there and save the airport fees.
It is CLOSE to the airport and has the most important thing to us: a free 24hour shuttle to the airport. So yes, Free coffee in room plus free breakfast plus free shuttle = a winner. Yes the mattress was kinda thin - ish (could feel the springs) but if you are in a pickle, this hotel is JUST FINE - so go for it. If you don't like the looks of your room, just ask for a new room - ask for one on the 3rd floor away from the newly renovate wine bar - it will be quieter.
