OK, but with exceptions.
Reviewed in the United States on October 18, 2018
For the most part, this guidebook was helpful, with a couple of notable exceptions. On page 189 there's a sidebar for Hatcher Pass, including this description of the Hatcher Pass Lodge: "If the weather is nice and you have the funds, it's hard to pass up spending the night at Hatcher Pass Lodge...a highly recommended splurge." Really? Imagine our surprise when we checked in at the front desk and found that our cabin (at $145 per night) had no running water and was equipped with a chemical toilet. There was a communal shower available in the main lodge, open from 9 am to 9 pm. We also used this guide for lodging recommendations around Anchorage. There is no mention of several reasonably priced motels on Spenard Rd near the airport.
