This unique, independent and kind of funky little place near downtown Anchorage is perfect for families who seek something different while on vacation. The Creekwood Inn is the ideal home away from home, only steps from hiking trails, with an array of room choices at the Creekwood Inn, meaning there’s an accommodation option for every family configuration. Choose from a double room with two queen beds, a junior suite with a queen and a twin bed or a studio suite with two queens or a queen and a daybed. Full-size washers and dryers are onsite as is a fish freezer to store your catch for $3 per 15 pounds of fish.

Patricia at the front desk saved us from sleeping in our car! The room I booked didn’t have a parking space for me and I refused to risk having my rental towed, so we sat in Mcdonalds parking lot calling around to try to find a hotel or motel under $309. Couldn’t book online because midnight had come and gone, so I needed a “right now” place. Hotwire was no help, so I did a search on local places and found Creekwood’s number. I knew they were nearby as I’d driven past more than once.
It was a match made in heaven. We got a second floor room at the end of the hall and if was gloriously quiet. Darkening shades let us sleep in til just before checkout, which set the stage for a wonderful next leg of our journey.
On our next trip to AK—and there WILL be one—we will stay with Creekwood Inn as our home base.
Thanks, Patricia and all!!!
My family has been using Creekwood Inn for at least 15 years and we are still happy staying here. When my husband and I just need to get out of Homer and into the big city, this is where we go. Will always recommend.
