Hotels near ANC airport but not on top of

What are your recommendations for hotels that are close to the Anchorage airport but yet not real close. Need one for the last nite there.

There are tons of discussion on this topic on this board. Do a search by entering "Anchorage airport hotels" and read away. Based on doing that myself, I would choose the Hilton Garden Inn. Reasons for me - nice hotel (and I've had very good luck with Hilton Garden Inns in the past), places to eat nearby and airport shuttle in case I want to return the car early and not have to deal with rental car return the morning of my flight.

The Courtyard Marriott Anchorage Airport hotel worked for me. It was only a mile or so from the airport but in a nice area where I didn't feel like I was sleeping next to a runway. Also they have complimentary airport shuttle if you wanted to drop off your car the night before your flight.

Per BudgetQueen's recommendation on here, we stayed at the Ramada Inn Limited on Muldoon. They had a shuttle and were most helpful. Clean and have a breakfast buffet. Great for an overnight before heading out.

for Dolores, keep your posts together buy 'replying' to your own thread. Like this:

Dolores says--- Sorry. I also wanted to ask about a hotel for the first nite there. No need to be near airport then but I'd like something near restaurants, etc., since we'll be meeting up with friends who have never been to AK before either. Thx.

For next June, there is a HUGE price difference between the Ramada Inn Limited and the others mentioned. Other than limited services, is there a reason--location, condition, etc.--that would account for this?

Lyntom, we saw the same thing May/June 2005. Saved us a bundle and could see no reason for it. The prices really shot up just after we were there, though. Are you looking at very early June?

Oh, and Lyntom, comparatively speaking again, we did not find they had limited services. They have a full buffet breakfast and the shuttle will take you just about anywhere. We could not have been more pleased.

The main reason I stay at the Muldoon Ramada is their shuttles for the depot and airport, offers a significant savings. They also have laundry, which is handy for usage while I'm picking up the car.
