Coast International Inn
Decent hotel to sleep next to the airport
I frequently stay at Coast International Inn on my way out to the Bush to work and it’s a great hotel for sleeping. It’s close to the airport with a free shuttle and prices are reasonable. There is a restaurant attached but I have never eaten there. The restaurant and room service close at 9pm and I am usually arriving after that. Maybe during the summer hours they are open later.
Excelent, Love this hotel
been staying here since 2006, its a distance from downtown Anchorage, but i hardly go downtown. everytime i stay here the rooms are clean, new shuttle service since the last time i was there, and the new vans are nice. really like the upgraded TV’s. would be nice if there was a Keurig coffee maker
Nice Location, Great Customer Service
There were four of us using the Coast International as a home base for our last few days in the Anchorage area. As I was researching different places to stay in Anchorage, I was a bit concerned to see so many less than favorable reviews. I was pleased to have a quiet, convenient, CLEAN room to stay in at the Coast International. Was it as luxurious as some of the hotels I have been in before? No, but quite honestly, I did not plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel room while in Alaska, so luxury was not really a necessity. Comfort, adequate space, friendly and knowledgeable staff – those were what I wanted, and what I found here. We were also treated to a beautiful sunset over Hood Lake on our last night in Alaska. I would readily return here on future trips to Alaska!
Ok for pre-flight stay
We needed a place for literally just a few hours before our 2:45am flight. We needed to pack our bags, shower and maybe close our eyes for a couple of hours. They are located just a few easy minutes from the airport which made this convenient. I can’t comment on the shuttle service as we had a rental car. There were 3 of us, but had I been a woman alone, I wouldn’t have felt very comfortable. We weren’t there long enough to know if it’s a safe area or not, but I had to go out to the car to get something and it was dark and there were a number of what to me seemed shady looking characters standing just outside the door smoking. I had to walk through them to get to my car. Maybe they were guests, maybe not, but both the proximity to the hotel door and the hanging out did not seem appropriate to me. The hotel is clean, but it is worn and definitely shows its age. The room was clean and comfortable. They have a computer by reception which was great for printing out boarding passes. It served it’s purpose for the few hours we were there, but I would not use it as a base for Anchorage or for more than one night. The whole atmosphere was uncomfortable and depressing for me.
Exactly what it said on the Box
Good hotel, will use the next time I fly into Anchorage. Excellent shuttle service, great friendly staff always able to help. Good rooms, well serviced pretty quiet considering the location. Will stay here next time I stop in Anchorage for a few days.
