Coast International Inn
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.
Night before our cruise.
Perfect spot to stay the night before our cruise. The hotel backs up to a lake that has the highest float plane landing strip. We walked around the lake and enjoyed viewing the plane traffic. The hotels rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel has a restuarant with above average food. Televised sSports are featured in one of the facilities. Food reasonably priced. They have a shuttle from the airport.
"Quick trips to Anchorage"
As a health and safety professional that spends more time on the road than at home. And needing a place to stay for a few days in Anchorage while visiting a regional office; I found the Coast International Inn a comfortable place to stay. Their airport shuttle is prompt and the drivers are courteous and helpful. The Inn is only minutes from the airport, has clean rooms, comfortable beds, wireless internet and the restaurant and lounge where you can get a decent meal. The hotel is ideal for someone who just needs a place to rest and be ready to hop on another flight. Nothing is close by. No elevator in the hotel, so for those traveling with alot of bags, ask for a first floor room. Will be staying again on my next trip to the Anchorage Office.
