We stayed at Alaska Garden Gate B&B for 4 nights on the first leg of our Alaska trip. We wanted to be close to our daughter who lives in Wasilla and all of the places to stay closer were booked. There were four of us travelling together and when we called for reservations, we wanted the 2 bedroom apartment but... More

The accommodations were very clean and well appointed. Perfect spot to stay while enroute to various activities. Daily breakfast was a great start to the day. Only improvement was to have a little more sitting room for evening talks with family.

What a great place! Cabin was huge, with kitchenette and jacuzzi and shower. Very clean, with lots of comforts. Complimentary breakfast was really good too. Free wifi also offered. A peaceful and wonderful place to stay.

We stayed in their 2-BR, 2-Bath unit with another couple while vacationing in Alaska. It was so much more spacious and way less expensive than the 2 hotel rooms we had been renting in Anchorage. It was quiet and very comfortable. One side had a king bed and 2-person jacuzzi tub in the bedroom; the attached bathroom had a no-barrier... More

Despite the name, it is not really a B&B, but a place with cottages and motel type units which serves an indifferent breakfast buffet similar to a Comfort Inn. It is off by itself a few minutes from the highway and about 10 minutes from either central Palmer or Wasilla. You should note that the address they give is misleading.... More

A three out of five "dot" score isn't too good... I'm sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. We created these new hotel-style rooms with bunk beds in our new Inn building for guests who are looking for value at a low price. We don't know of any other choices locally for $129 per night with private bathroom and also... More

Our entire experience with Alaska Garden Gate B&B was wonderful. We arrived after a long day of trekking the Matanuska Glacier, fairly late at night, but we were still warmly greeted at the front office and shown around to our cottage. The cottages are just wonderful! We stayed in a king bed cottage, and it was cute, clean, comfortable, and... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with another couple. The unit was very nice, modern, clean, and private. Breakfast was different each day with many hot and cold selections plus multiple juices, coffees, and milks. Fresh breads and more. Beautiful views, close to sights and resturants. Our 3 day stay was our nicest lodging in Alaska.

Thanks for the great review! We're trying to offer a little of everything on our new breakfast buffet so we're glad you enjoyed it. The Two Bedroom/Two Bathroom Apartment you stayed in is our largest lodging spot yet, and it's a great choice for two couples or larger families who want together time, but not too much "togetherness", each with...

Clean, upgraded and excellent service. Although we had to share the kitchen in the room we got, it was a very quiet atmosphere surprisingly. Loved the breakfast. We will definitely recommend this place to friends that come to Alaska. :)

This B&B is absolutely wonderful. It's quite, clean, spacious and the grounds it's on are beautiful with a nice view of mountains. Staff was very kind as well. I would recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again if I ever come back!
