We got off the ferry at 2:15 AM. Drove around trying to find the place. The street sign is missing so if you're not familiar with the area it's frustrating at that early hour despite given directions before arriving. Becky had a note on the door welcoming us & said she was away on city business. She adjusted the rate... More

We spent two nights here in Wrangell, which was the first stop on our Alaska adventure. Couldn't have been a better experience. Ours was the Sunshine Room which had a view downhill over the town; it also had dormer walls which are easy to bonk with your head. But very comfortable and quiet room. Becky's breakfasts were huge and delicious... More

Beck & Gordon were wonderful during our 2 night stay in July this year. Their home is so clean, tidy & comfortable & we really enjoyed staying there. Becky's breakfast was amazing & we loved meeting the other guests & catching over breakfast. Becky also provided transport to & from the airport.

Our group of 4 couples stayed here for 2 nights. It was just right--nice rooms, good breakfast, good location, nice hosts--and the price was very reasonable. Becky also picked us up at the airport when we arrived and helped us get to the ferry when we departed.

We recently stayed at Rooney's Roost for the 2nd time...and enjoyed it just as much as last year! The rooms are clean, the location is close to the center of town...stores, restaurants, tour companies are all just a block or two away. Becky's breakfasts are wonderful and she is cordial, helpful, and compassionate. This year we had to leave Wrangell... More

The hostess is friendly and a great cook. The house is immaculate and well appointed. Also the hostess arranges for free pick up from and to the ferry or airport. Great place to say for a few days in Wrangell

The Rooney's Roost B&B is my favorite place to stay whenever I'm visiting the friendly southeast Alaska town of Wrangell :)) The proprietor is most courteous and friendly, and she prepares & serves absolutely delightful breakfasts, complete with fresh fruits & yogurt topping, yummy entrees, and homemade breads (be sure to sample her tasty cookies too). The completely renovated, historic... More

6 wet canoeists were lucky enough to find space at Rooney's. Becky made it so easy by transporting our gear (multiple trips!) and giving us hot cookies right off the bat as we recovered from our Stikine River canoe trip. It was a slice of heaven to have 3 beautifully decorated rooms, a sunny deck for sitting and enjoying the... More

We stayed three nights at Rooney's. Wrangell is a more of a working town than a tourist destination. In fact, I would have to say that the town is generally resistant to the idea of becoming a "tourist town". We typically call places like this "two night" destinations. For example, few restaurants and no restaurants open past 7P even in... More

Becky and Gordon are wonderful hosts. Their B & B is clean & comfy. Becky makes an awesome breakfast for her guests. There are chairs on the porch, a table and chairs outside on a deck (for the sunny days), and a comfortable sitting area downstairs. There is also a sitting loft upstairs. While we were there 6 wet and... More
