I reserved a room here for one week as part of an Expedia deal that was very well priced. I was surprised at what an excellent rate they were asking for. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find a beauty working the front desk. She was polite, knowledgeable, and quick to get everything in order so I could check in. I arrived very late after a long flight, and was relieved to be able to check in after midnight. There was soothing French or Russian music playing when I arrived, and the hostess was speaking Serbian. Her accent and the way she presented herself really made me smile. She showed me to my room and was always available when I needed something from the office. I was even offered a box of cookies and taught how to say a word or two in her language. This inn is in a perfect central location, within walking distance of many eateries, and has allowed me the peace and quiet I needed to launch many expeditions across this state. I've also made excellent progress on the series of novels I am writing. Hat's off to these people! I will definitely return. The lobby has very cool furniture and wall art, too, by the way.

This Bohemian-styled hostel and motel is loaded with character and stories. The name, meaning ten legged polar bear, refers to a Native American oral tradition, echoed in the large angled log pillars propping up the front of the building. The establishment features individual self-contained units, as well as dormitory or pod-style accommodation with a shared bathroom. There is also a common dining area, a common fridge to store your perishables, and in the summer season a wholesome cooked breakfast is included in the quite modest price. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and tastefully, although idiosyncratically furnished. One feature that stands out is the opportunity to meet other guests in the common area, usually an eclectic mix of intrepid or budget travellers whose stories provide much better entertainment than the TV provided in each room. I would highly recommend this establishment to travellers wishing to mix with fellow travellers as well as real Alaskans.
I stayed in one of the hotel's "pods" which was tucked on the side of the hotel. The pods were sort of like a hostel and shared a communal living room, which was a little messy when I stayed there, but it didn't matter to me. "Pod people" also share a kitchen and bathroom. It was a little cluttered-looking with everyone storing things in communal rooms, but I feel like that should be expected if you're staying in a hostel. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful. They found me an extra blanket when I asked for one, and were always very friendly. I had some trouble with my booking - seemed like their computer system wasn't happy with me prepaying on Expedia. The staff cleared it up with no hassle on my part, but my room key stopped working after the first night due to the computer error. They replaced my key right away. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience and saved a ton of money.
From the time I entered to check in I felt this place had a very homey welcoming feel. The hotel attendant at the desk made me feel very welcomed. So much so that she actually got me money back for my reservation. She even was nice enough to upgrade my room... Def went above and beyond!*** The one big thing that people who stay here complain about is the serious no drinking/no alcohol rule. As someone who drinks socially I can Def respect the owners wishes, and as an anchorage resident I understand why the rule is there. Alcohol causes bad things here! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give this place a shot! It's very reasonably priced and very unique. I would Def stay here again!
This place is a nice basic hotel conveniently located in the middle of Anchorage. Easy to get to from the airport and not far from pretty much anything in the Anchorage area. Our room was just what we were looking for: clean, a comfortable bed, good shower. The common area and kitchen area were great as well. We sat out on the back patio enjoying a beer at the end of the day talking with some other guests. The one somewhat unpleasant aspect of our stay was the owner. She isn't the greatest with customer service. That being said, this place satisfied all the things we needed especially for the price. Would recommend to anybody.
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.
This hotel has a great deal of uniqueness and charm. The rates are very reasonable, the rooms comfortable, and the staff professional and friendly. The combo of price and other factors makes this a great value. It is also centrally located.I was extremely happy with the Russian Delicatessenbad cross the street.The hotel itself has a very artsy and eclectic feel to it. If you are tired of cookie cutter hotel chains, and want something different and special, this could be the place for you. It was for me.
This place was just what we needed. Great price, a nice comfortable room, clean hot shower, convienent location. Easy to get to from airport and downtown area. The back patio was a great place to sit and enjoy a beer at the end of the day as we talked to some of the other guests. The kitchen and common areas were also welcoming. The owner's customer service skills are definitely lacking but it didn't tarnish our experience.
We booked this at the last minutes and requested a room with private bathroom. The room was a good size and a nice shower room. For some reason there was a bar in our room but no beer!! Room and bathroom are all tiled floors and room was cold (could be because we booked last minute or because it was damp and miserable outside). Free breakfast included which was welcome. overall good for the price.
I was only interested in a place to lay my head--real reason to be in Anchorage is for sightseeing etc The place was very basic but clean. Bed comfortable. The hotel is in an industrial/commercial area, but didn't seem unsafe. Hotel staff was not always knowledgeable, but tried to be helpful For the price I got what I was expecting--as everything else in area was twice the cost here.
