    The location was perfect, so close to downtown restaurants/shopping and the beautiful nature trail by the water. The grounds are beautiful, with lovely places to sit on the outside and amazing urban gardens. The living room was warm and cozy and the staff was very helpful...

    The hardest part of the Inn is something they can't control and that is the outside noise, I had read about it in advance but figured it couldn't be that bad, (it doesn't seem that bad during the day) but at night it was very noise including fireworks at 4:00am. They supply earplugs and we both used them and it helped. I would not let it deter anyone from staying there it was a lovely place.....

    The location is very convenient to restaurants, the trains station, and tours. View is great.

    Not a real breakfast - expanded continental - in no way deluxe as advertized.

    Enjoyed the local ambience of the place and is not a chain hotel. Friendly and helpful staff for out of towners.

    The room was difficult to get to with bags (narrow staricases), but had a great view.

    Fabulous

    The Copper Whale Inn was a very friendly and comfortable place to stay. We particularly liked the informal and relaxed atmosphere. It is also in a great location - right next to the Tony Knowles Trail, good views over Cook Inlet, and walking distance to everything in downtown Anchorage.

    Very comfortable beds Room was very clean

    No Parking. The evening manager gave me a ticket that was supposed to get me out of the garage for free.. When I tried to use it 25 minutes later, the card was refused because it had expired. When I checked out, the day manager tried to collect $15 for the parking garage pass. When I told him that it had expired, he told me he knew that, blamed it on the parking garage firm and still wanted me to pay the $15, I refused. I tried to use the small ironing board, It was designed to be used on a table but there was no table big enoug for it. It didn't make any difference because there was a corroded rivet that stuck up about 1/4" right in the middle of it. When I tried to turn on the cold water in the sink, the handle came off in my hand.. When I told the day manager about these problems, he told me it must have just happened. THE RIVET WAS CORRODED! I don't blame the managers. It is the owners responsibility to staff these positions with with intelligent, trainable people and then check on them to be sure they know how to do the job correctly. In the case of the day manager, the boat was missed. I not only would not recommend this hotel, I will go out of my way to warn people not to stay there.

    Location and the gold fish pond. The breakfast was great.

    Could use a coat of paint and some up dating.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly, provided good info. The breakfast was very nice, maybe some more tables would have been good.

    The carpet needs to be replaced, it was stained, dirty and ruined the look of the inn.
