Coast International Inn
Great Location, Fantastic Food!
I have stayed at this hotel several times and finally decided to send in a review. While this is an older hotel, my stays have always been comfortable. The staff is so helpful and friendly, and the food is phenomenal. Can’t say enough about the Kobe Beef Sliders with carmelized onions, and the breakfast burrito became my breakfast every morning. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Gem on the coast of Lake Hood!
This is not a flash US hotel, but it over delivers for the price. Anchorage tends to be rather expensive in the cruise season especially downtown, so we chose to spend a couple of days on the edge of the lagoon that is a busy floatplane aerodrome and explore from there. Good decision…the restaurant looks out on the lake and serves excellent local food, especially the salmon. I am told the halibut is as good.You can waste hours watching the interesting and varied flying craft!
Good location close to the airport with free shuttle, and downtown is just 10 mins by car and easy by bus.
The rooms are typical of the area..rather dated but comfortable, but the desk service and all-round staff attitude is terrific, great people.Would do it all again.

Very convenient for airport.
Its very close to the airport with a good free shuttle service. Staff are very friendly and helpful Nice restaurant/lounge with good food and excellent choice on breakfast menu. Some building work going on around but no noise in hotel
We stayed for 3 night and enjoyed traveling to all parts of Anchorage. It is very convenient and has a very good restaurant reasonably prices and friendly. The front desk was very godd in setting up tours and directions. The public areas need to be refreshed but the rooms were well maintained and comfortable. The only problem we had was the sound of the float planes taking off in the morning.
Not a bad place for our one night stopover before we caught the cruise ship at Whittier. l graded average but it was slightly better and on the whole we had no complaints. Like most cruisers we decided to overnight in Anchorage rather than chance traveling up on the day of the cruise and missing the transfer coach. The window for the coach transfer is noon to 4pm. The Coast has a shuttle service that picks you up promptly at the airport for the short ride to the hotel, a tip here is that the cruise ships either pick you up in town or at the airport. Rather than pay the price of a taxi into town we got the shuttle back to the airport in the morning. We were met at the front desk by Steve who was pleasant and helpful, our room was clean and function-able. They did have a bar and restaurant which seemed to be well patronized even though we didn’t use them. About a ten minute walk away around Lake Hood were a gas station that sold alcohol, a couple of take away pizza joints, McDonald’s and Wendy’s. There also a place called the Village Inn where it appears the locals eat, the food was reasonable and filling. Another ten minutes down the road is the Brown Jug Liquor store which we were told was the cheapest place in Anchorage, they didn’t lie, a good place to stock up for the cruise.We booked our room up through Air Alaska for $177 tax inc and there are several other hotels in the same area but like l said we have no complaints. P.s. Remember to Breath.
