TripAdvisor Rating


This Midtown Anchorage BEST WESTERN hotel will please families looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay while passing through the Alaskan capital city. This Best Western offers two kinds of rooms, each capable of suiting a small family: a king bedroom with a sofa bed or a two queen bedroom. Each room includes a microwave, refrigerator, phone, TV and Wi-Fi. Onsite dining at the BEST WESTERN is a plus when staying in midtown Anchorage, as is free parking. There is no free breakfast or pool, though.

Very "average" Best Western

by PDXPremier

My family and I stayed at this Best Western during a brief trip to Alaska to celebrate my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. The room was clean and comfortable for our one night stay. I appreciated that there was plenty of free parking and it was located in what appeared to be a very safe neighborhood. Although I knew about it ahead of time when I booked the hotel, this is one of the very few Best Westerns I've stayed at that doesn't offer a free breakfast so if that's important to you, you may want to look elsewhere. My biggest issue with this hotel is the fact that there is literally ZERO recognition for elite members of the Best Western rewards program. I'm a Diamond elite member and didn't receive room upgrade, not even a free bottle of water. In fact, I actually received a slightly smaller room than the other 2 queen rooms. After my stay I received an email from the General Manager asking to let him know if there were any issues related to my stay so I informed him via email about this issue and never heard back. Needless to say, there are far better choices in Anchorage so I probably won't be back.

Hotel is very out of date, bathrooms need to be remodeled, and rooms need updating. Property just looked out of date and tired. Room not very comfortable. Our door was stuck at times and the towels were very worn and needed to be replaced badly.
