WiFi was not working the entire 5 days I was there. Had to switch rooms because door wouldn’t lock and TV wouldn’t work. Once I switched rooms the bathroom light went out on my second day there. I asked 3 times for someone to fix it to no avail. Had to shower in total darkness the rest of the trip. Breakfast was same everyday and over cooked eggs were not good!
Rooms and facilities are not as clean to a 3 star hotel!
The location was good.
I initially booked this spot because it had a pool. Upon arrival I learned that it was closed due to the earthquake. I feel like that should be noted on your website! We checked in, went to our room, and only one bed had a blanket. We went out around 5 at which point I asked the front desk to send a blanket up. When I got back at 10pm, still no blanket. Called the front desk, they said it’d be up in 10 minutes. 20 minutes later, I call the front desk, they say they’ve been busy and that they are the only person working right now. I’m pretty tired, I have two young children that I’m traveling with, so I ask if there’s anything I can do (meet them at the desk, laundry room, something useful). They say no, it’ll be up in 10. STILL, 10 minutes later nothing, so I go down, they run with me to the laundry room, no clean blankets. Nothing. At this point it’s after 11pm. They say they’ll have to grab one from an empty room. Which they do about 15 minutes later. Blanket procured. But I feel like it was just one of those times where one thing after another kept falling through. The guy offered to give us complimentary breakfast tickets, which was nice, but he never sent them to our room, so I asked the front desk the next morning, and the attendant was very short and rude about the whole thing. It all just seemed really ridiculous. How hard is it to just be nice and understanding to a patron?! So no, I’d have a hard time recommending your hotel to anyone! Beds were uncomfortable, one just had a top sheet instead of a fitted sheet. I just feel like you could do a lot better, and I hope you want to.
Perfectly fine hotel
The rate and the location were great and they had laundry facilities. 2 blocks from the incredible museum.
First floor rooms don't really allow you to open the windows and the laundry room is far away.
Ok accommodations with an EXCELLENT location!
location, location, location The rooms were clean and everything functioned well. The staff at the front desk was nice and professional. We also appreciated the free and tasty coffee at the front desk. Thanks!
It appears that this was a motel that was turned into a hotel. It just seems run down and a bit weird. It just doesn't seem like a standard hotel you see these days. Overall though it was ok.
The only coffee provided was decalf. The name on out front is for the bar/restaurant, not the hotel.. I think it needs just one strong name for the whole establishment rather than multiple names.
The entire hotel smelled horrible.
The bed was comfortable... Thats about all the pros for this hotel.
Hallways were dark and barely lit, entire hotel smelled like mold or just downright disgusting to the point where my 2 year old daughter kept commenting on it. Room smelled just as bad even with the window left open the entire stay. I suggest you take your business elsewhere, the puffin Inn is cleaner, and cost about the same.
I enjoyed the downtown location near quite a few excellent places to eat. I did take a cab a few times to midtown and the University and the front desk was very helpful in arranging my cabs.
For the location, in close proximity to local bars and such its well worth the price. great live music in the hotel bar.
One of my towels was kinda dingy, downstairs door from parking lot wouldn't open I had to walk around to another door. The neighborhood is pretty rough around there. Very limited parking.
Nice beds and towels
Moved to two different rooms. First room the refrigerator was missing. Second room, refrigerator did not work and our food spoiled. Then we went to the pool. Apparently the pool was "under construction" so it was closed indefinitely ...the refrigerator and the pool were the primary reasons we booked at this hotel.
Really great hotel that is central to exploring the historical areas of anchorage. The next block over is the statehood monument, city timeline, local history displays, giant carvings and statues, Alaska mint and photo ops. Also, shopping for local specialty items is all right there. Great breakfast!! Seemed mostly homemade, too.
Long walk to room on super long hallway.
Anchorage Lofts is just fine
Before we stayed at Anchorage Lofts Hotel we read a number of reviews that said the place was dirty, damaged and otherwise unpleasant. For this reason we payed pretty close attention while we were there and didn't notice any of these offenders. We stayed two nights, my boyfriend and I in one room and his father in another. After inspecting the rooms and other parts of the hotel we only determined that it was simply old. The bathrooms, linens, floors and furniture were all clean. The service was adequate... we had no complaints.
I kept trying to find something "wrong" with the place after reading bad reviews but the only thing "wrong" was that it seemed very worn down. There were paint chips off of the walls in some places, the carpet had wrinkled up, and a lot of the hotel seemed like it had been through partial renovation. Everything was clean though, and everything worked in the rooms. I would say that if you're looking for a "fancy" place to stay, this doesn't quite make the cut, but for the price compared to the other hotels in the area it was definitely satisfactory.
