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.

The Creekwood Inn is a small motel with an RV park on the property. It is a good value. The staff was very cooperative. Rooms were clean with adequate accommodations. We stayed in two different rooms at the Creekwood Inn on our trip to Anchorage. Our first was the junior suite with a queen and a twin bed and a full kitchen. The second room was a regular room with a queen bed, microwave, and small fridge. The price difference was nominal, but the junior suite was already booked when we needed our second room. I’d go for the junior suite if you can get it. Both rooms had good, free WiFi. Cable TV. The location is off the beaten path for the touristy things downtown. Walkable to downtown? Yes, but not unless you’re a fairly hearty walker with some free time. My husband and I walked it once when we had free time, but we found the $10.00 Uber rides to downtown much easier. For times when you just need to get a few supplies or eat, not necessarily do the touristy things, there are restaurants, a grocery store, and fast food much closer and an easy walk. We stayed at the Creekwood Inn a total of six nights and were not disappointed. We would stay there again.

We spent two nights in the Creekwood RV Park in July. Like most Alaska campgrounds, the park is in a gravel lot with few trees and pretty close together. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The Park is clean. The bathrooms are nice with hot showers. There are laundry facilities. There is a very nice walking/biking path right off the property that leads to the downtown area. However, the neighborhood around the park is a bit sketchy, with intoxicated people wandering around and homeless families camping in the woods nearby.
