Bottom Line

While it doesn’t have the most exciting atmosphere or a large set of amenities, the two-pearl Motel 6 Anchorage Midtown is an affordable chain property with a clean and contemporary design renovated in 2017. Travelers won’t find breakfast here, but there’s free coffee in the mornings and vending machines for snacks or drinks throughout the day. Rooms are simple both in style and in amenities, but they are clean and pleasant. They offer flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning. For just a bit more per night, travelers should consider the Clarion Suites Downtown which offers a more ideal, centralized location plus an indoor pool, gym, and free breakfast.

Scene

Budget chain hotel with a clean and updated design, plus kid-friendly policies

Motel 6 Anchorage Midtown has a contemporary and simplistic decor that's typical of the Motel 6 brand. As the decor was renovated and updated in 2017, it provides a fairly clean and lovely stay for a budget hotel. The design of the building is typical: a three-story white building with blue accents. Inside, the lobby has a mix of vending machines and a coffee station, with little seating for travelers to sit and interact. Beyond the lobby, there are no other public spaces. Most travelers are couples or groups of friends that don’t need much beyond the basics. Though it’s a good option for families, too, because kids stay free. 

Location

An 11-minute drive from airport and downtown Anchorage, with little to do in the immediate area

Motel 6 Anchorage Midtown doesn’t really have an impressive location. Sure, it’s fine for those with a car as it’s an 11-minue drive to the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and an 11-minute drive to downtown Anchorage and the H2Oasis Indoor Waterpark. However, there’s not much to do in the immediate area. There are a few chain restaurants (like the Golden Corral) that are within an eight-minute walk from the property. The Cuddy Family Midtown Park takes 18 minutes to reach on foot. 

Rooms

Pleasant rooms with air-conditioning and flat-screen TVs, though no coffeemakers

With attractive laminate wooden floors and updated blond wooden furniture, this Motel 6 is a notch above what you might expect of the brand. The contemporary decor was completed in 2017 and features an orange-ish red statement walls and beds with gray and orange bedding. Rooms cover the basics with flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. However, without mini-fridges and microwaves, travelers are really submitting to a budget experience. Bathrooms are simple; they come with shower/tub combos and basic toiletries -- though no hairdryers. Take note that some rooms allow for smoking, which isn’t ideal for all.  

Features

The mere basics like free Wi-Fi, free parking, and a coin-operated laundry room

The list of features at Motel 6 Anchorage Midtown is low, even for a budget hotel. Free amenities are Wi-Fi throughout and parking on-site. The hotel doesn’t offer breakfast in the mornings, but provides free coffee and has some food and drinks vending machines. Pets are welcome and the hotel offers doggy bowls and pet waste bags to those who need them. Long-term guests can take advantage of the coin-operated laundry room.
