Not perfect but quiet & clean
I stay here in between trips to Prudhoe Bay working for Matrix. . The staff is awesome & very helpful, my rooms are always clean & well stocked. Only downfall is, there is NO elevator, so if you’re packing several bags, you’ll be toting them up stairs.
I’ll be here the week on 11 May & will update this.
The staff was awesome, nice rooms, beds nice & comfy, good water pressure, but the food wasn’t that great. The location is very close to the airport, and town. On the overall, I will definitely stay here again.

Great hotel for a layover
I have stayed here at the Coast International Inn on my way to and from work. I get a good discount rate because of the company i work for. I am really impressed because it is really close to the airport and you can hop in to and from the airport almost immediately. I find the staff here very friendly.
Great staff and great food!
I went to a convention at the Coast International Inn and the food was out of this world good!! The staff were attentive, personable and hard working. I enjoyed everything about this event. Both dinners I attended were amazingly excellent, so tasty and plentiful, the desserts were simply wonderful.
They set up our room for the convention and accommodated us with every request that we asked.
The drinks were well poured and delicious, the room was perfect for our group and it was a blast to be there both of the nights I attended! Food…oh my gosh I could go on about that for a while but I won’t.
The room was cozy, the bed cushy, sitting area very nice and everything was clean and well maintained.
Now my shout out -major Kudos to Michael and Cara – the bartenders, our most excellent wait staff Lina and Ramon and of course the personable Food and Beverage Manager – Rock! KUDOS!!!
Thank you for all your hard work and for a wonderful experience!!
Great hotel at reasonable rates in Anchorage
Having just spent the last two weeks volunteering at the Iditarod, I needed to be near the headquarters (out near airport). My initial loading was unsatisfactory to me for several reasons, so mid way through my trip, I called the Coast and they were willing to accommodate an ARHP rate.
On the outside, the hotel is dingy and definitely needs work. One person made comment on the hallways, and I would mimic that. However, my room was in excellent condition. The bed was comfortable with great pillows and higher end sheets. There was a mini refrigerator which I used for left overs. The bathroom was also very clean. The tub had a few mismatched tiles, but I’m not staying in a 5 star in NYC. It’s Alaska! The important thing is the bathroom was clean with nicer towels.
On some nights the hotel had greater than 80% occupancy, and yet I rarely heard anyone (I wanted the second floor to not hear footsteps above me). Occasionally, there would be a door slam, but in essence, it was very quiet. The heat worked fine, and windows opened (which I love for fresh air for sleeping). The wifi worked fine for me though I didn’t spend hours on it.
I ate 4 times at the restaurant associated with the hotel and that had great food at more reasonable prices than downtown. Also, after volunteering a full day, I just wanted a good meal and a beer.
The location was very close to the airport with free shuttle. I walked everywhere including back and forth to the hotel at later hours–never had any problems. So felt safe. There is a People’s Mover bus (#7) about a 3 minute walk from the hotel that take you directly downtown.
The vast majority of staff were very friendly. In fact one of the people who always seemed to be working (not behind the desk) took my leftovers and microwaved them for me. That’s customer service!
As I will be volunteering at the Iditarod again next year, I will be back. Thank you.
