HorrificPosted Jan 2, 2015
Location: According to the taxi driver (upon our leaving)--there is a hotel down the street that rents by the hour. Draw your own conclusions.
There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how awful of an experience this was. Overpowering smoke smelling hallways, no staff, doors with locks that don't work, no amenities like toilet paper, paper towels, towels, wash cloths, soap--not that you would want to use the shower that is shared by the people in the other 15 rooms. I couldn't even be sure when it was cleaned last if it is anything like the kitchen where you search for any clean drinking vessel which is also shared with and cleaned by all the people of the Inn. Overly hot and stinky rooms with no temperature control. If it weren't for the late night arrival, no staff to get my money back from and hopefulness that it would get better---I would have left within 10 minutes.

OK motel in downtown Anchorage.Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: The shower head was great. Overall quaintness of looks.
Cons: One shelf in the entry room needs to be removed to make room for a clothes hanger rod. Then the cabinet in the bedroom needs to be removed so the ba
We were in Anchorage for a graduation and didn't have much time for anything else. Good places for dining were within a short drive so that was convenient.

Different!Posted Aug 25, 2014
I arrived about midnight after a long haul flight, the place was in compete darkness, somebody had hit a power poll down the road! I had only seen the room by candlelight so was pleasantly surprised by the retro style when i woke Breakfast was self service continental & very good a helpful lady answered all my questions. The place is a bit of a backpackers & the area is not the best, but it served my needs!

Schlechteste Unterkunft meines Lebens - Weltweit.Posted Aug 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
Statt gebuchtem Doppelbett nur zu kurzes Einzelbett. Zimmer nach vorn zur Hauptstrasse ohne jeglichen Lärmschutz. Zimmer total überheizt ohne Regulationsmöglichkeit. Zimmer direkt neben dem Shared Bad und WC. Ganze Nacht Lärm und Türenschlagen, Dusche und WC-Spülung. Bad in unglaublich dreckigen offenbar nie gereinigten Zustand. Das schlimmste was ich je gesehen habe. Das Haus ist teilweise eine Baustelle und überall liegen Müll und Baumaterialien herum. Habe kein Auge zugetan. Kein Frühstück. Hätte ich hier aber auch nicht gegessen. Finger weg von dem Loch. Auch für den Preis und die sehenswerte Fassade ein absolutes NOGO.

Very bad experiencePosted Jul 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Horrible experience. The room was being remodeled. The wall power units weren't working and there was no electricity in the bathroom.

Not Worth the SavingsPosted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: The furnishings & decor were definitely interesting.
Cons: This place needs a full revamp.
Location: Removed from downtown ... it's not quite at meth row, but it's also not quite at much else.
I booked something cheap as I knew we'd only be in it from after midnight (upon landing) and breakfast but still wish I'd spent the extra $50 on someplace else. Though I appreciated the quirky mix of 1960s & '70s furnishings (egg chair, Milo Baughman), the bed was terrible, there was a hole in one of the sheets, and the room, overall, felt a bit unclean.

Friendly unusual place to stayPosted Jul 4, 2014
Staff was very helpful. Rooms are decorated with an international flavor. Low cost options for budget conscious travelers. Nice community ambiance.

Don't even think about itPosted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Much cheaper than just about everyplace else in Anchorage. There's a reason...
Cons: Put real bedding on the beds. Get actual tradespeople to do your renovation work. Room heat doesn't work (not good in Alaska!).
Location: Sketchy neighborhood. Strip mall across the street rowdy and noisy until about 2 A.M.
"You get what you pay for." This old truism was never truer than in the case of the Qupqugiaq Inn. If you are a fan of youth hostels, this might be OK, but if you like comfortable accommodations, go elsewhere.
