  • Rented a F800gs for an overnight trip down to Hope. Could not have had a better experience with Motoquest. Everyone was extremely helpful, bike was in great condition. They let us borrow whatever gear we needed, including tie down straps. Would recommend to anyone wanted to do some riding around Alaska!
  • Had a great experience renting a motorcycle for the day at Motoquest. We rode the Suzuki V-Strom 650. Vincent and the rest of the staff were phenomenal, very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely coming back to rent again!
  • Established bike shop installs engine wrongly, and leaves rider to pay for their mistake 
 On 2 Aug 2017, I bought a bike from Motoquest Anchorage, which is a reputable bike shop with 4 shops around the US. I left Anchorage on 5 Aug, and had a engine breakdown in Canada, Watson Lake on 12 Aug -  after 7 days, 1800miles. I was on tow over 1.5days to the nearest Kawasaki dealership in Fort St. Johns. The kawasaki mechanic who repaired my bike has more than 10 years of experience. When he opened up my engine, he said that it was a simple mistake of the mechanics at Motoquest; The cam caps were installed in the wrong direction, and a possibility of the nuts not torque-tightened. (Either way, the cam caps in the wrong direction suffices to cause the engine failure). This let to the loosening of the cam cap, and the shaft destroyed the engine. I told the Kawasaki mechanic that Motoquest mechanics had replaced the gaskets and timing chain on 1 Aug, a day before I bought the bike. 
 I emailed Motoquest detailing the full details of what had happened, to seek for help. After 8 full days on 22 Aug, I received a reply from one of the partners of the Motoquest, Kevin. He simply forwarded a reply to 'all', 
 'All, Please note that we did check all surplus parts in our Long Beach CA. shop as well as Anchorage to no avail. Sorry Mr Seng is in the situation he is, however this is no other assistance we can render at this time. Regards
Kevin Hagerty MotoQuest' 
 I am absolutely disgusted and disappointed with such a reply from an established business like Motoquest. Moreover, on the first day at the Kawasaki dealership, I personally called Kevin to request for his help. His first sentence to me was 'you know i really do not have to help you'. His second sentence was 'I am very busy and I do not have time'. After some talking, he said he will look for the parts I'm looking for and update me the following day. This promised update NEVER came. No call. No email. No apology. These factors reflect the extremely unprofessional and unapologetic business ethics Motoquest has to a rider like myself who took the time to call/ email/ explain everything to the shop who sold the bike to him. More frustratingly, Kevin exhibited behaviours that are do not do justice to what the brand name represents. My bill was $1200CAD, less the inconvenience of 5 days of accommodation costs while I had to wait for my bike to get repaired/ and zero replies from Motoquest during the first 3 days of desperate seeking for assistance and parts. I even tried contacting the other partner, Phil, who refused to assist and leave the matter entirely to Kevin. I have the official purchase receipt, pictures and dates of my mileage, and emails from Motoquest. Kevin and management team, you are an absolute disgrace and disappointment. 
  • The team at Motoquest are fantastic and the tours are just outstanding!

Where to stay in Anchorage

Anchorage hotels increase room rates during the height of the tourist season, but you can visit the area economically any time of year by choosing a budget-friendly bed and breakfast or small inn. The city's downtown area contains the priciest rooms; most are offered by chain hotels. You can find less expensive rooms at a cluster of hotels located in Midtown, a largely commercial neighborhood with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
