    « Review »

    Was satisfactory, but, didn't get my room cleaned till a day before we left. We were also in a hurry to check out but was a long line, tried to get the attention of one of the workers but, she just ignored us so we just walked out and left because we were almost late for our check in. I've stayed here before and never had any problems till that stay.

    « The Veterans Affairs Take Care »

    Rooms were nice, customer service was excellent. Except I over heard one desk clerks loudly claimed he was "off the clock" in his word as he sat behind the counter, and was not willng to help another desks clerk complete a task of some sort. Other than that, nice hotel stay, great breakfast too!

    « Excellent & Friendly Service »

    For a slightly older hotel, the service was top notch! VERY courteous and helpful staff - on all levels. Centrally located and perfect for getting around town. I've stayed here several times and will continue to when I'm in Anchorage. I'd highly recomend staying here.

    « Business trip »

    This place is comfortable, convenient and clean. The location is ideal, being near shopping and downtown. The restaurant was such a surprise with excellent food. I will stay here again, and I hope that will be soon.

    « Good, easy, reliable hotel »

    Very well located, clean, comfortable lodging. We had no problems. Has a convenient, good restaurant in the building. I don't have much more to say, but TripAdvisor makes me add this last sentence to reach some minimum number of words.

    « quick trip for medical »

    quick trip into Anchorage for a medical treatment. the hotel was very well placed in my need for closeness to the medical office. the front check out desk person was very nice. she was very helpful at checkout. they will keep your luggage if you need them to, until your evening flight or time to check into the airport. The restaurant is not busy and they are very friendly.

    « Great service »

    Stayed here August 27th 2016. Customer service was great, from the way we were greeted in the lobby to any inquiries we made. Check in and check out was a breeze. Rooms were clean,comfortable and spacious. Complimentary coffee in the lobby was a bonus. We booked using air miles so I was unsure what service we would receive but it didn't make a difference.

    « fine hotel for a one night stay »

    Hotel was oke, but we kind of expected a little more considering we paid about 200 dollars a night. The hotel was fine, but a little outdated (could use some refurbishment) and a little far away from everything.

    « Anchorage »

    This is the only place I stay when in Anchorage. Excellent staff, very comfortable and clean rooms, coffee is delicious and always on, and the restaurant is top notch. Easy access to airport and in and out of city.

    « Quick stay, great experience »

    Fair price for last minute need for a hotel room, professional staff, clean room! Not far from the airport, and plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. Staff was very friendly, professional, and willing to help with all questions.

    « Good to stay not a luxury, but clean and good location »

    We stayed here due to the good rate and it was on the recommended lodging list for a convention we attended. It is easy to find, right off of the Seward Highway. It is within 15 minutes to any of the main locations you are likely in Anchorage for, medical, less than 15 to Providence Hospital, ANMC and related clinics, less than 15 to downtown area by 5th avenue Mall, and less than 15 minutes using the highway to Dimond Center area. So very good all around that way. The entryway is kind of oldish, and dated, but clean and the staff was great! One young man even helped a lady with a loaner cane until she was able to get herself a new one. She lost hers on the way to the hotel. We were impressed! The elevator is way dated and old but worked, the rooms and hallways have been updated somewhat and are clean at least. No fan in the bathroom which is a pet peeve of mine. The tv and internet were very good, the air conditioning was just ok, not awesome. Overall, it was good for the price, felt safe, and the location made up for any other failings it had.

    « Great value for the price »

    Very friendly staff, quiet location in spite of being on the corner of two major thoroughfares. Comfortable beds, great amenities. Not the newest hotel but quite well maintained and reasonably priced.

    « Best Western Golden Lion Anchorage, AK »

    The room was very pleasant. The beds were very comfortable. The location was excellent for our purposes. I thought that breakfast in the restaurant was quite good. The only negatives were the super warm elevators, and the fire alarm that went off in the middle of the night when the kitchen staff was degreasing the grill.

    « Great Hotel for a Great Price in the Anchorage Area »

    We needed a hotel in Anchorage for one night till we could pick up our RV so we went to and booked this hotel because it was the best price. We were very happy with all aspects of the hotel, lobby, rooms, and staff. Kaylyn and Kendra at the front desk were amazing with the help we needed for our trip.

    « Clean and Comfortable - Large Room »

    I am a conference planner for a large medical association so I see A LOT of hotel rooms. The room was very large and the beds were extremely comfortable. The room was quiet that night, but that usually has a lot to do with your "neighbors." The room had a fridge and a microwave. We had a small view of the mountains. I would suggest the hotel spend a small amount of money and install extra lighting. The room was very dim. The door to our room did not fit well into the frame (313). But I still felt safe as we could lock the deadbolt and flip the other lock. I was under-impressed with the hotel staff (2 gentlemen) on the night of our check-in. Neither of them seemed to know who was using the computers at the desk or what was going on. I felt sorry for a solo woman who checked in at the same time. She showed up a couple of minutes later saying someone was already in the room they gave her - people's belongings were in the room and everything was used and beds not made. I hope this was a single incidence. The other staff we ran into during our stay, including front desk when we departed, were very pleasant. The only real gripe I had is that they give free breakfast vouchers to people who stay there UNLESS you have some sort of discount - ours was a AAA discount. I have never heard of such a thing in my 20 years of meeting planning. The hotel is very centrally located to every place we needed to go before departing from the airport the next afternoon. It is nice that they have a noon check-out.

    « favorite in Achorage »

    The Gold Lion is in a great location to access downtown and the airport. We always stay at the Gold Lion the night before we fly home. The staff is always helpful. We to to Alaska for the fishing. The Gold Lion will store our fish in a freezer overnight so we can check it as luggage instead of having to ship it.

    « Just Ok. »

    The name would suggest a nice place to stay, however my wife and I spent a couple nights here and weren't impressed. There is no shuttle to pick you up or take you anywhere, you have to call a taxi or use the bus. The staff was courteous but the restaurant is so so. There was no clock other than the microwave which was across from the bed and was so bright it was hard to sleep. The bathroom was in need of repairs as the tub dripped all night and the shower head was very loose. The exhaust fan didn't work and the towel hook on the back of the door was falling off.

    « Anchorage (Providence Hospital) »

    Enjoyed my stay. I had to have surgery at Providence Hospital and was able to rest & recuperate at Golden Lion afterwards. Good experience for me. Excellent staff. They were really nice and carried my luggage to my room for me.

    « All hotels in Alaska are overpriced »

    I stayed here for 5 days last month but I would not have stayed here if I didn't collect Best Western Reward points, due to being overpriced. This hotel would probably go for about $89 per night in the lower 48, nearly one third the cost, and that ratio is normal all over Alaska, restaurants and hotels are about 2 or 3 times more expensive than they should be. On the negative side, the price was $240, the toilet did not flush when I first checked in, the staff made an error with my billing, there is no free continental breakfast but you can pay for one. On the positive side, the staff is great, very helpful, they gave me pointers on where to go and what to see and fixed my toilet and billing issues within 24 hours. The location is 3 miles from downtown, 1 mile from the University of Alaska, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The wifi works in the room, there is cable tv, hot showers, and air conditioning, all of the basics i expect in a room, especially one as overpriced as this one.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    Cleanest room I have stayed in a long time. Kudos to the housekeeping team. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I was blown away with all the TV channels. Very nice surprise. One good thing is they do not try to nickel and dime you for everything. Restaurant was above average. Much better than most hotels. The only drawback is no airport shuttle

    « Average highway motel »

    This unrenovated 1970's highway-side motel was only acceptable. Sheets were clean and bed was comfortable. The good things ended there. The non-smoking room smelled of stale cigarettes, the old carpet had a couple sticky spots, and the room was a bit noisy with the Seward Highway right out front. The wifi and digital cable TV were both unreliable.

    « A Helpful and Cooperative Staff »

    We stayed here on August 7 for one night and again on August 12 for 3 nights. The first night was not good (we were not welcomed as Loyalty members and didn't feel welcome) so we were not looking forward to the next visit. When we registered the second time we were greeted warmly and welcomed. Our first night was on the first floor in an even number room. The first floor actually has several steps up to the hall where the rooms are. This room had some problems - the shower head wouldn't stay up on the bar, the TV remote didn't work and it was ultra noisy from the parking lot, the highway and the floor above. The next morning we asked to be moved to an odd number room on the top floor. They were very gracious about letting us move. We had no further issues. Good things: refrigerator, microwave, TV, coffeemaker. The bathroom has white light bulbs which is nice. The staff is very nice. There are elevators. A restaurant is on the premises. No complimentary breakfast unless you stay multiple nights - we got breakfast vouchers.

    « Old and Tired »

    Old and tired hotel out of the way of most everything. Friendly staff. Rooms are fairly spacious, but musty and dark. No hotel shuttle to the airport or anywhere. It is quite a ways from downtown and the airport. $20 taxi fare. Fred Meyer and strip malls are close by.

    « Needs renovating »

    The price was right, the location was convenient and the staff are friendly and helpful but the hotel itself is unappealing. The lights didn't work in the elevators and one had doors that wanted to close too quickly. We stayed three nights in two different rooms, and in both rooms the carpets were grungy and a layer of dust was visible around the edges. The chair in one room had a bad stain on it. The room door and bathroom doors seemed to be off kilter - the room door did close securely. The first night they put us in a room on the highway side and assured us the noise would stop overnight - not true in our opinion! On our return, they did put us on the other side of the hotel which was much quieter. My other issue is that the website says "breakfast available - charges may apply." It should be clearer that breakfast is available in the onsite restaurant and you will have to pay for it or go to the McDonalds two blocks away.


    Feel like I got conned on this one. They talk about being close to the airport yet it is a $25 cab ride each way. That's without a tip too which cab drivers depend on. So anyway no free airport shuttle. Rooms was nice and the Sushi restaurant nearby was excellent. Be aware of unscrupulous characters hanging out at the bus stop out front and make sure you get a Yellow Cab not a Checker cab. Checker left me hanging for over 30 min. Yellow Cab saved my trip and got me from the hotel to the airport in 10 min.

    « Nice Balance of Price and Quality »

    As we planned our vacation to Alaska I was blown away with sticker shock. Everything was horribly expensive, including lodging. We ended up choosing Best Western Hotels for our lodging in Anchorage, Homer and Seward as the best balance between quality and our budget. We found that the Best Westerns are about $100 a night more expensive than they would be in the lower 48, but substantially less than most other options. This particular hotel had no breakfast buffet, but most of them are worthless anyway, so no great loss. The size was nice and it was clean and conveniently located on the main road that heads toward Seward and Homer.

    « Good stay »

    This appears to be an older hotel, however, it is nicely maintained. It's very clean and comfortable and the service is great! We stayed here heading to and coming from the peninsula for a family vacation. We have a family of 5 and they graciously brought up a roll away bed to make us more comfortable. We would recommend staying here to anyone.

    « Worse Customer Service EVER »

    We made a last minute booking at this hotel on Trip Advisor. When we got to the front desk we asked to see the room first before officially checking in. The room was on the bottom floor, right next to the front desk, 2 elevators, and flanked by a very busy parking lot. It was also a handi cap room so all the counters were extra low. We told the front desk clerk this would not work, we would not be able to sleep in the middle of all this noise. We left to go to another hotel. When we got back in town, discovered that we had been charged for a room we declined. We called this hotel to discuss this, Lisa the manager was very rude and screamed that she was refund the hotel charge as it was our fault for booking through Trip Advisor. We are waiting to hear from Trip Advisor to work this out. Lesson learned don't give them your credit card because if you get there and the room is unacceptable, this hotel will still charge you.

    « Anchorage Summer 2016 »

    Friendly staff, but our stay was spoiled by having neighbours for the last 2 nights having a party with blaring music, yelling and banging on the walls. Staff was able to shut it down at 12.30am the first night but we moved rooms to get some sleep the second night when the party started at 9.30pm. One would think that noisy patrons spoil the stay for many!! Surprised they were not kicked out.

    « Stayed for 7 nights, summer season. »

    When I first got to Alaska I stayed here for a week. There is a stuffed lion in the front, in the lobby. Front desk was helpful, they helped with my luggage. There are three floors, I was originally on the 3rd floor. I asked to be near the restaurant and lounge, which is on the second floor. They switched my room on request. Front desk gave me a map of downtown and told me about Moose's Tooth pizza. Housekeeping was very friendly and attentive. My room was always clean when I came back from spending a day downtown. The prices are affordable, I paid $201 a night. There is coffee and water in the lobby, this hotel has free WiFi and a business center, fitness room, a public laundry room, vending machines, an ATM machine, a bar, a restaurant, and dancing! Big, clean rooms with soft oversize queen beds.

    « Older Hotel, But The Beds Are Comfortable »

    This Best Western appeared to be old, as the rooms and common areas were pretty worn looking. Despite its worn appearance, the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We got a good nights sleep, which, I guess, is the most important thing. It's worth noting that the staff was extremely nice. This hotel is a little pricey, but so is all of Alakska in the summer. On the fence on whether we would stay here again.

    « Does the job for a restful night »

    Stayed here twice for one night stays. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and met our needs. The staff (front desk and housekeeping) were all very nice and helpful, especially when trying to move our luggage from our room to the elevator as we had many bags I would recommend this place as it is close to the airport.

    « Old and Overpriced »

    Got in on a late flight and needed somewhere to stay in Anchorage, unfortunately in the summer the rates go through the roof. We stayed at the Golden Lion because I knew it would at least be clean and it was. It is a fine old hotel but badly in need of a remodel.

    « It's ok and friendly »

    Got to anchorage late and booked last minute. The staff was friendly rooms were clean. It's a older hotel but kept up with . The internet worked fine and was free . There was a bus stop out side to get down town which made it convenient .

    « Excellent Choice »

    You will not find a cleaner, nicer place to stay. The staff was helpful in every way. The location was handy. The rooms were excellent. I judge a room by the bed and the shower and I have never had any that were better than this hotel. The room was very luxurious and had everything you could need. I don't think you would ever regret staying here.

    « Nice hotel for the price, exactly what we needed, would come back again »

    Stayed here only one short night before leaving Anchorage but it was just what we wanted... nice enough rooms, friendly staff, free wi-fi, clean, lots of parking, well equipped... a tiny bit noisy from a nearby street, but it wasnt a problem at all, I am being really pick here, would come back for sure, good value. Thank you!!!

    « Decent place to stay »

    Spent 2 nights here. It was ok. We got in too late for dinner but McD is close. Did not seem as convenient as other places we stayed. No breakfast but that was ok since we had a very early flight! Friendly staff. Pretty lion. Challenged business center pc. If you spend more you can get more elsewhere.

    « A great place to stay »

    I love the option of soft pillows and the beds are very comfortable. I always get a good nights sleep at Best Western Motels. The staff is always helpful and very kind and courteous. the rooms are clean and well stocked. The restaurant has very good food choices and was not overly expensive for Alaska. They have recently remodeled this hotel and it is now a very desirable place to stay. I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good nights sleep in a clean hotel.

    « Noisy Location but Good Value for Anchorage »

    Checked in here on a Tuesday on our way back from Denali National Park. After the beauty and solitude of Denali, it was an adjustment getting back to a big city. The hotel is at a very busy intersection - right next to the Seward Highway which is the one of the two main thoroughfares in and out of Anchorage and another main downtown street. Traffic buzzing by all day and night. The hotel literally sits right on the corner so if noise bothers you don't stay here. I asked for the quietest room available when I checked in (hoping to get on the quieter side of the hotel away from the highway) and the clerk put us on the 1st floor right next to the highway.....even though I had to be one of the first people checking in that day (around 3:00 - very early). I could hear trucks, etc through the room walls. They need to soundproof the rooms better. The clerk said the hotel was full and to get me a better room would involve "shuffling" people around. So right off the bat I was not happy with my room location. The room however itself was very nice. Spacious, clean and modern. We tried to find a restaurant that night but traffic was horrendous and we were tired so we circled back and ate at the hotel restaurant. It was totally empty. But the food was OK - nothing spectacular but adequate. We also had breakfast at the hotel the next morning. Service was fine. Anchorage is extremely overpriced. Most major hotels run $200 or more for an average room. Not sure why other than many people stay here as a stopping point for cruises, etc. We paid $185 plus tax for this room which would probably run $100 to $150 in other parts of the country.

    « my best western experience »

    friendly staff, clean very comfortable the staff was very helpful with directions and places to see. I found the decor to be very appropriate for the area we were visiting Alaska. I had a wonderful experience relaxing and comfortable. The room was so comfy just like home the bed was divine just an overall pleasant stay would highly recommend this best western to everyone.

    « Convenient to airport »

    We stayed for one night the first day we arrived in Alaska. The hotel is a little older but we found it satisfactory and the rooms comfortable. They offered a free breakfast at the restaurant, the food was good and service excellent. We also found all the employees to be friendly and helpful.

    « Good value »

    Convenient place to stay during peak season in Anchorage, good brewpubs and restaurants nearby, don't bother with the lounge unless you're of retirement age - staff was friendly and attentive, am I up to 200 characters yet

    « good value »

    really enjoyed staying here. stayed an extra day just to get some much needed rest from fishing in Alaska. Staff were excellent and very friendly. would stay again. had good washing machines and dryers as we had been travelling for days. this was very helpful. good place for a quiet and safe night rest. does require cab from airport.

    « Last Minute Accommadation »

    From the time of booking, arriving, eating, sleeping and departing the next day, this hotel was a top rated experience for us both. Service was excellent, even when it came to me not being able to use the USA international phone service, staff were always willing to help me through the issue.

    « Golden Lion Great »

    Stayed twice at Golden Lion Best Western during our vacation.. It was quiet, convenient to Seward Hwy 1. The restaurant (received free breakfasts) food delicious and service great. Staff met every request for service and information. Bag carry in and out service available. Used on site laundry which was convenient and clean. Lighting was good and internet service fine. Would stay again.

    « Way below Best Western Standards »

    I am a Best Western Platinum Rewards Member and primarily stay at Best Western Hotels when traveling. This is one I won't go back to. This is a run down, dirty, noisy location and at $250 a night (even for Anchorage in the Summer) this is not a place to stay. There is a brand new MyPlace hotel just a few blocks away that was cheaper and I wish I had stayed there.

    « Transit Anchorage »

    The best western golden lion hotel is very satisfactory as a transit hotel and as a lower cost hotel in Anchorage. It is convenient from the airport, the rooms are large and comfortable, there is a restaurant and the staff are friendly and helpful. We booked using Hotwire and did not know which hotel we would stay at until we purchased the night. We were pleasantly surprised at what we got and the price. The price was radically different to the hotel we were booked at for the following nights. We would stay at this hotel as an economical and very satisfactory place to stay

    « Excellent hotel for a short stay »

    Quite a typical Best Western - with large spacious rooms and well equipped with all the necessities - microwave, fridge, TV. There is a restaurant in the hotel which looked quite good - though we didn't eat there. This is quite conveniently located with several restaurants and shops quite nearby.

    « When convenience is important »

    This Best Western fit my attitude very well. It is not the most fancy hotel, but, the staff was especially friendly and helpful. It was conveniently located slightly out of the downtown area and near easy access roads. There are many decent restaurants close by, although the Moose's Tooth always seems to be extremely packed. I did not get to eat there because it was so packed. Sleep was difficult, not because of the hotel, but, because of the sun being up nearly 24 hours!

    « Nice but a bit too little for the price »

    The hotel was ok. The rooms were ok. The restaurant was ok. The people were ok. That sums it up...ok. The rooms are just too expensive for jus ok. That is the drawback. for an ok motel, one should get an ok price, but you do not. way too expensive for an ok place.

    « Kind of scary »

    This date 60s 70s era hotel is in awful condition. Date threadbare carpets, beat up walls with paint peeling. Room was somewhat better however. Not fancy but adequate. Staff however were super nice and helpful. Next trip I will look elsewhere.

    « RTK »

    Very clean with comfortable beds. Easy and close parking. Restaurant menu and food quality excellent and well worth the slightly slower service. Trip Advisor room price well below Expedia and all other similar sites.

    « Showing it's age »

    Hotels in Anchorage are very expensive so for the price we were disappointed in the quality of the hotel but to be fair it was more that adequate for our needs as a stopover on our way to our cruise ship.

    « Not the Best »

    The pull through spaces were big enough, but not very level - sufficient for our needs at best. The staff, however, was really unaccommodating and rude. They didn't particularly want to answer questions. Left a note on our door one day because they thought we hadn't registered and paid for a site. Laundry room was clean and spacious, but not unlocked at the designated time. Ladies room was the worst - it always smelled like mildew. Certainly would't pick this part again.

    « Dirty room »

    My floors were obviously not vacuumed. My 4 year old found a small white pill on the floor. Luckily, he did something out of the ordinary and asked first before he ate it. There was a used towel hanging from my shower rod!!!!! The bath filled up to my shins during my shower. It obviously needed drano, I've seen this same complaint in other reviews. And I found hair on the towels! The elevator was super sketchy. Multiple times I got in and the doors shut and then nothing happened after pushing the button over and over to get to a different level. The lights never lit up either, so you didn't know what floor you were on. When I showed up I had my arms full of bags, I am 36 weeks pregnant and I am in no way helpless. But no one at the front desk offered a cart or any kind of help. I dropped my bag on the floor and a maintenance man stopped what he was doing to run and open the door for me. Not his job at all, but he showed more compassion and customer service than the people at the front desk. Laundry service closed for maintenance. Right next to a major highway, very loud traffic at all hours.

    « The Golden Lion, Anchorage, Alaska »

    This is a first class, very professional, full service hotel. The restaurant has a delightful assortment of dishes to test your taste buds. The lounge can make the beverage of your choice. It is located close to medical facilities, with easy access to the downtown area so it is convenient for business and pleasure.

    « If you need a place to rest your head in Anchorage, this will do. »

    Centrally located in Anchorage. Easy to find. It wasn't a life changing hotel experience, but definitely met our needs. We were able to get a good night of rest. We wished that there would have been a continental breakfast but we were able to find a fast-food breakfast spot close to the hotel.

    « Lion among bears »

    Hight standard as a whole chain with comfy beds and nice desk personnel. Quite good location esp for motorised tourists on a way to Seward/Kenai Fjords. If you are In hurry choose another restaurant for breakfast. Although good and tasty. Find yourself as a king of a jungle in the middle of boreal forest :) Different fable but on a top of hierarchy...

    « A Good, Safe Choice in Anchorage »

    I found the Best Western Golden Lion to be a great fit for my needs during my recent trip to Alaska. Since I was only staying in Anchorage for 1 night, I just needed a clean room in a convenient location. This property met both requirements and was reasonably priced. Employees were friendly, the room was spacious, and the beds were comfortable. Be aware that the property is undergoing some renovations right now. The property is definitely a little older, so I definitely think these renovations will be a great addition. Just be prepared to see some work being done if you are planning on staying here soon. Also note that the hotel is located quite close to the highway. It doesn't bother me much, but if noise does bother you, that might be worth considering. Lastly, this property does not provide complimentary breakfast. Breakfast is available for purchase at the on-site restaurant.

    « Expensive, hairy experience »

    The sheets were clean, but the bedspread was hairy. The carpet needed a thorough vacuum all the way around. The tub looked clean, but there was a hairy mess behind the bathroom door next to the tub, kinda a giant fur ball. It was in late April and we had to run the AC unit to cool down the room, because it was way too noisy to leave open the room window. We dined in their restaurant, and it was good enough--got to watch a moose browsing a little ways from the hotel. There was, however, no complementary breakfast even with paying $124 + tax for one night.

    A decent hotel at a decent price, but it is in an ideal location. the entire city is conveniently accessible, airport downtown, Diamond, or Muldoon are all a quick drive from here. Anchorage can be a confusing city to navigate, but this hotel is located right on or near most of the major cross town roads.

    Overall great experience. Rooms are very nice and beds are comfortable. We received a nice hot shower. This is my 2nd time staying at this location and will probably keep booking here. The upgrades that are done at this hotel are very nice.

    « Nice hotel and great staff! »

    When ever I have to stay at a hotel I will not even consider any other hotel. Every thing looks clean and fresh. The staff is so nice and are just wanting to help in any way that they can. My wife works at another hotel and we stay at the Best Western!

    « Okay Stay at this Property »

    We spent one night last week at this property before flying out the next morning. It has easy enough access to the airport. Beds were comfortable and room was pretty clean. It is off a main highway, so was a little noisy for a while... but was quiet enough to sleep later on. We had a 2 queen room with a microwave and frig. The bathroom was a little small, but okay. The hotel is non-smoking, but when we were walking to our room on the 3rd floor, there were 2 cigarette butts in the hallway in different places and a crumpled up cigarette package, with some other trash that people had left outside their rooms. There was a little noise form the other rooms, but not too bad. Was a decent enough price especially since most hotels in Anchorage cost quite a bit. Okay for a night or two.

    « Not a Terrible place »

    Some staff are not so Friendly or Helpful, but the others make up for it. Overall, it was a nice stay. Resturant is convieniant and the food was not bad. The in room ammenities were a help, but had to fight with the dispensers a bit. Id stay here again.

    « We would stay again if in Anchorage, Ak »

    We stayed four nights and our room was very quiet except for the last night. We were on the first floor and the people above us were making noise and dropping things on the floor so we couldn't sleep. The front desk was very helpful in printing directions for us when we needed help.

    « trust, friendly and comfortable »

    « Hidden Gem »

    On a recent trip to Anchorage, we stayed at the Best Western Golden Lion. We chose it specifically for its location, but value was equally important. Reviews were good, and it was a quick trip. Let me say---we would absolutely stay there again. Our room was large, clean, and bed very comfortable. The location was incredible! In 10-15 minutes or less we were anywhere we needed to be! An added bonus was a full service restaurant, and bar on site. Breakfast was fantastic!

    « Clean and friendly »

    I found the staff friendly and the room clean. I work at a motel here in Alaska and I was very happy and comfortable here. This Hotel was very close to the hospital and I was here visiting my 90 yr old mother as she had surgery for a broken hip. The elevator was a bit scary as it felt like an Alaskan earthquake as you were being taken to whatever floor.. But other than that I was very pleased with my stay. I stayed here once years ago and remember it being pleasant. Thank you all.

    « Comfortable and Nice Place to Stay »

    This Best Western was chosen due to how close it was to a class I was taking. The room was very comfortable and super clean. I like that! I tend to like Best Western and have joined their rewards membership. I do recommend this hotel for others that need to stay in Mid-town Anchorage.

    « Its like my second home »

    I love staying at this hotel when I go back home to Alaska! The staff has always been over the top nice and knowledgeable about the area. My room has always been clean, fresh and up to date. The location is perfect, Im close to all corners of Anchorage and just a short drive to downtown for some shopping!!! I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a fabulous stay while are you in Anchorage!!

    « What a Great place to stay! »

    This was a clean and modern property! The staff was soo friendly and helped me anytime I needed anything! I was very pleased that the location was so handy to my travels in Anchorage. The restaurant has really good food! That doesn't always happen at a hotel restaurant! I even had dance lessons up at the bar!! OMG what fun it was to watch then participate in the dance lessons. I stated a few days and there was a different group and lesson up at the bar nightly.. too fun!

    « perfect place to stay »

    very nice room, the front desk was very friendly. the location is very convenient to everything. there is a bar on the 2nd floor. plenty of parking, did not have any trouble finding a space, even when coming in late.

    « Comfortable place to stay »

    Staff is usually extremely friendly and helpful. Great location for me. Always clean and smells nicely. I stay at this hotel every time I travel to Anchorage. Unless of course there are no rooms available.

    « Has everything u need... »

    if you don't mind a few broken items in the bathroom....the beds & pillows are VERY VERY comfortable...the restaurant is supposedly not "affiliated" w/ this hotel, waitress made us wait a very long time to pay the bill, she cleared our table & we got up to pay she went to have a we had to wait till she got back.....

    « Best Western Golden Lion Hotel »

    Thank-you to all the staff. My stay was wonderful. Thank-you again. I had important Doctors appointments. The kindness of the staff really helped. I was quite nervous, so a professional staff makes a big difference in a positive way.

    « Enjoyable stay »

    I picked this hotel since I am a rewards member. Considered hotels closer to airport since I had an early morning flight. Friendly front desk, modern furnishings in room. Lots of pillows, quiet during the night. Would stay here again.

    « Hotel Stay »

    It was a very nice stay, I enjoyed my short trip. The employees did a fine job and the help I got was very quick and professional. I give Best Western Golden Lion Hotel a five star! Thank you all for the best stay I had. Keep up the great work.

    « Disabled Approved »

    I stay in this hotel every time I have to go to Anchorage for doctor appointments. They're filled with a very caring staff, who always go out of their way to help me. I do not look disabled to the "normal" person (I have MS and am ambulatory) but their guys always push the loadcart and help us get our stuff in. They've never fussed once about it. (even when it was colder than a reindeer butt outside) They're also super good with my mom's service dog (My mom is my escort as I can't drive anymore) never giving her any guff, and always making sure we're settled well. There are 3 rooms downstairs with no stair access (if heat is your problem like it is one of mine) there a more with a small staircase access (like 3 steps?) The showers are well situated in those rooms with bars to hang onto. Also the Wheelchair bathroom is as bag as you could ever hope for with a roll-in shower. The food from the in house restaurant is AMAZING (I recommend the chowder and the molten cake omg.. if the molten cake isn't available as for a brownie sundae with the molten cake topper :D) The fried chicken is delish, and the fries are great (kinda spicy to my mom though so if you have spice issues no fries)

    « WORST HOTEL ever »

    I chose it because of Best Western membership, breakfast, etc. My review was in the comments earlier. In short, Lost reservation (but Corp. had it), requested amenities not in room, room set up for 2 not 3, black hairs over sheets, filthy carpeting around furniture & behind, afternoon-evening staff indifferent to our needs, even blamed the manager at times, restaurant/bar had private party so only in-room meals (with service fees & tips!) for the night - didn't do... No breakfast offered downstairs at this hotel. No express checkout offered. Definitely no helping a 69 year old man who needed help, getting all the luggage on a cart upstairs, with many male, young staff there to make that happen!

    « Everyone is so nice! »

    You feel like you're at home!! From the time I arrived I was treated like I was a King. Everyone from the GM to Housekeeping smiled and was so nice, I loved it! I can't wait till my next stay, if you want to stay at a nice hotel with friendly people stay at the Golden Lion, Best Western.

    « Dark room »

    Overall, I enjoyed my stay. However, the room was very dark with little art on the walls, making for a dreary living space. The restaurant was a little sketchy, too, but not horrible -- bad music -- on par with a Denny's.

    « My new home when working in Anchorage »

    Nice clean room friendly staff, decent restaurant (no free breakfast though), Did not use business center, but in room internet (WiFi) had decent speed and the desk was big enough for a laptop and several portfolios to spread out on..

    « Needs to be updated but great surprisingly quiet location »

    We've stayed at this hotel before not much has changed. I reserved a handicap room, did not get that but this time it was ok. One of the beds kept coming off the frame but was quickly dealt with. The bath tub clogged up but again was quickly dealt with. Most of the staff is super helpful and nice. Comfortable beds and pillows. Pretty clean rooms.

    « Great Location to see Anchorage »

    Stayed at the Golden Lion Best Western as a base to see as much around as possible. 20 minutes from Flattop - great place to see the Aurora, 10 minutes from downtown for food and souvenirs. Recommend traveling towards Portage Lake for hiking along the way. Great staff at the Best Western, helpful tips on where to eat.

    « Reasonable and clean »

    I have always enjoyed staying in this hotel. The staff are very nice, always smiling, ready to help with anything they can. The rooms are clean and well maintained. For the is well worth it.

    « Wonderful accomodations! »

    Our stay at Best WesternGolden Lion in Anchorage was wonderful. The staff was extememly accomodating to our individual needs. When we came in, they had us scheduled for a higher floor, but bec of our needs, we requested a first floor, and they were very helpful in working that out. Everything was very clean, comfortable, and beautiful!

    « A Good Overnight Stop »

    Convenient location if flying or driving. Friendly staff and large clean rooms. Room was very comfortable with all the standard amenities. Bathroom was roomy with a good shower/tub. The bed was comfortable and room was quiet. Would stay here again.

    « Away from city center, but very nice. »

    Huge room. Nothing to complain about. Very reasonable prices. Short drive to city center, but you couldn't walk it. I would definitely return. Excellent value for money, and seemed modern. Good showers too.

    « ANC - Pain Pump »

    Very short visit, Wife had procedure 6:30AM at Anchorage Surgery Center. Not much time to sleep or evaluate facility. Employees are polite and efficient. Facility is clean, quiet and comfortable. Check out was fast and efficient.
