We stayed at the Aurora Inn in Nome for 4 nights in early June as part of a birdwatching trip with High Lonesome BirdTours. The hotel is a short drive from the airport (so is everything else in town) and is right across from the Bearing Sea. Check in was easy and quick. This is a very nice hotel, one of the better I have stayed in recently. Staff was low key, but very friendly. They still asked that we wear masks indoors, but it was not heavily enforced. They do not have a restaurant, but there are a couple choices that are within walking distance. We ate dinners at Milano’s. There is WiFi available for purchase, but we did not do that. We had a two-bedroom suite (118) on the first floor. Note: there is no elevator so you will have to drag stuff up the steps if you are on the second floor. The room was very clean and show no signs of wear. The kitchen included full-sized refrigerator, stove/oven, two microwaves, a dishwasher, toaster, and coffee pot. It was stocked with what you would expect for a suite. The Livingroom was great with a very large TV. Each bedroom also had large flatscreens and large walk-in closets and queen beds. There is no AC but all the windows open and there is a fan in the room. That was not an issue in early June 2021 as it snowed 3 out of the 5 days we were there. Only complaint: One of our bedrooms was right next to the electrical room. AT random times a very loud motor sound lasted for about an hour at a time. I switched rooms with a very sound sleeper, and it did not bother them as much. Everything in Nome was walkable from the hotel and we regularly explored the area after dinner. This hotel is owned by one of the native corporations and is a great hotel. I would highly recommend.…
i have verizon and brought my laptop but there was no way to access internet. My phone showed wifi available but they said noone had the password. My brother had surgery while i stayed and there was no way for me to check texts, voivemail or email. There were only a few people at the hotel, most were patients at the hospital. I was not a patient myself...this was during the covid times. I was hoping to be able to look out on a clear cold night to see the stars or the aurora but they have a number of very bright lights every few feet, bright enough that I could read without turning any lights on and no chance of seeing a dark sky. The photos were taken from my window in the middle of the night. The room is spacious and clean
The new renovation is mostly complete now and it is really nice. New modern updates to the whole hotel. Very nice staff and clean rooms. I have stayed here many times over the last 15 years and now it feels very modern snd updated.
Property was in the process of a major renovation made even more challenging for the staff and workers due to weather and location. Staff was helpful and courteous and arranged for car rental as well as taxi back to the airport. Our room had been updated and had everything you would expect in medium priced property in lower forty eight states.
Stayed at this hotel for business in September 2019. The entire hotel is being renovated, though the available rooms remain in desperate need of a remodel. There were numerous detours present and the contractors were not exactly polite to the hotel guests. Some of the staff in the hotel, particularly in the evenings were very pleasant. Others were very surly and unhelpful. The first night, I stayed in a room without a functioning radiator. Although the temperatures were above freezing, the room got pretty cold and uncomfortable. I was fortunate in that the second night I stayed, I was given a room with a radiator. There is available wifi, but you pay based on the amount of data you use and it is very expensive. The wifi is very slow despite the high price. There were coffee makers in the rooms but only decaf coffee. I requested regular coffee and was told they were "out." The price of a basic room was way too expensive based on quality and experience, it was $225 per night with tax exemption in the shoulder season. This was higher than the $185 a night on the initial invoice, we had to contact the office to get the over-charge refunded. I guess I should look on the bright side...there was hot water in the shower.. Based on the appearance of the town, I suspect other lodging in Nome is much worse. Perhaps after the renovation is completed the hotel will be a better experience and if I stay in the future I could give a better review.…
