The door lock to my room does not work. The toilet seat is broken. I had to walk outside in the rain with all my luggage to get to my room which is a block away from the main building. This place sucks

I will look into these issues, and I'm sorry to hear you had to walk over to the Annex normally our driver should offer the shuttle to take you over.

I'm sorry to hear you were not pleased, unfortunatley our Annex building does not offer a elevator.

It took over 2 hours to get checked in. Had to sit in the car. Had front counter person call cleaning staff and manager several times. Was constantly told it would be an other 1/2 hour to 45 minutes each time to have a room cleaned. Had 3 or 4 airport transports checked in ahead of me, my wife and dog.

Sorry to hear of the Inconvenience, unfortunatley we only have minimal pet friendly roms which is why the other guests were able to check in before you.

This is the perfect place to stay if you need a quick overnight before the airport. I wouldn't recommend a long term stay here. We stayed here during our last night in Anchorage- Arrived at 9 pm and checked out at 4 am. They have a free airport shuttle, which runs on the half hour. Very convenient for early flights but honestly, an Uber to the airport from there is also probably $10. My two biggest complaints are the noise at night - We could hear our neighbors loud and clear - and the lack of elevators. There is only one elevator in the lobby. We were in the connected building and had to carry our luggage up and down stairs. Not super ideal when you have 2-3 bags per person.

Close to the airport. The motel was a series of buildings that decreased in appearance from the office to barrack type to a shed type facing back street under some stairs-ours!
