Come in after 3 our lovely lady at the desk was very kind...
Got us in our room and everything was in our rooms.
I would recommend friends and family stay here or lower 48.
I did a video hope it works
The room was nice, but we could never fully relax.
Despite signage in the lobby pronouncing the Anchorage Mask Ordinance in public spaces, no masks were worn by front desk, back office, maintenance or housekeeping staff during our entire stay. Partially due to hotel staff’s example, the majority of guests did not wear masks in the downstairs lobby/shop and hallways. A very large pile of wet/dirty towels and linen from multiple rooms remained outside our room for most of the evening. Stairways were filthy and trash cans remain full from previous night into the morning.
Stay safe, pick another hotel.
First stay. Very quiet and clean. Smaller establishment which is a plus, easy access. Centrally located in mid-town close to some retail, movies, and library. Walking distance of the library and theatre. Seems to employ Alaska Native people, a plus from my point of view as the staff very friendly. The breakfast is NOT included. For $5 they have a not great in-room offering. Since room prices are a little higher than a couple nearby businesses, this is a negative.
After reading all of the positive reviews here, I was expecting a lot more from My Place. We travel a lot to Anchorage and we were excited to try a new place that was reasonably priced.
The minute the doors swung open to the main lobby, the stench of stale smoke was very noticeable. The front desk clerk was super friendly and our check in was fast and smooth.
Once in our room (on the 1st floor), the smell of cigarette smoke was pungent. I felt like I had spent the night in a smokey bar.
The bedside table was dirty with a sticky dried substance and the mirror in the bathroom had a huge dirty handprint smear that looked like it came straight out of a horror movie 😂
Anyways, I would recommend My Place to a smoker looking for a cheap comfortable bed with friendly staff where less emphasis on cleanliness is ok.
I left Bellingham, WA six days ago and drove to Anchorage, AK giving myself plenty of time to get here. I arrived a day early as my condo would not be available until the next day, so I went online and found My Place. This hotel is exactly what I needed after traveling so many days! The hotel staff are very pleasant, the common areas and my room were very clean, and my bed was sooo comfortable! The room was actually more than I needed as it had a full size refrigerator, microwave, and 2-burner stovetop, which I didn't need for just an overnighter, but the price was very reasonable!
