Close to airport; convenient for short stays after or before flights; airport shuttle

Exceptional 10.0
Good place to overnight before an early flight
This was an overnight stop before an early air flight. I appreciated that breakfast started at 5:00 and that the shuttle was available all night. I was disappointed that there was no place outside to sit and enjoy our last Alaskan evening.

Fair 4.0
Check-in time was supposed to be at 3pm. I arrived at 3:10pm and was assigned a room number, but told the room was not ready yet. Apparently the room cleaning service proceeds in numerical order, instead of the order in which rooms are freed and/or needed, and because my assigned room had a high number, I had to keep waiting indefinitely. Not only is the rigid order in which rooms are cleaned interfering with providing good customer service, but they clearly don't have enough cleaning personnel for the number of rooms that need to be cleaned, as it took them another two hours to finally have my room ready, more than two hours beyond the official check-in time. I paid for a room that was supposed to be available from 3pm onwards, but wasn't able to access it until after 5:15pm. Not only that, but while I was waiting (after about 90 minutes) the person I had talked to at the reception when I first arrived came by to ask me (I had been sitting in the lobby area in the meantime, waiting) what my room number was again, "in order to see what was going on", and I never saw her again. Due to her dssappearance she left my check-in process halfway done, without closing explicitly in the hotel's computer system, which caused problems when the next person to take care of me tried to program my room key to give to me. To top it off, her instructions on how to get to my (future) room were completely incorrect! All in all, highly incompetent attention to customers.

Close to airport
Close to the airport which was really convenient for our flight arriving at midnight. Rooms aren't fancy. Fine to sleep for a couple hours. Breakfast was a bonus.

Poor 2.0
Not Clean
Filthy lobby and dirty rooms. Stained sheets. Hotel is certainly not worth paying $200.00.
