It was convenient, clean and comfortable with a good breakfast to start our day. We were gone most of the day and returned for rest and sleep at night. We walked to town and back daily - good exercise. A good financial deal compared to hotels and with the personal touch.

We stayed here before going on an Alaskan cruise. We arrived late and the keys were left out for us and labelled clearly. Cosy and clean room and great breakfast. Walking distance to downtown too. All round, can't fault.. Definitely recommend staying here!

We needed an overnight stay in Anchorage after dropping our hire car and picking up our cruise. It's easy to find and there are places to eat nearby. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was good, and our hosts most kind and helpful. After a week or so touring Alaska it was a real unexpected bonus to be... More

We visited Anchorage last summer (late August) after a Princess Cruise from Vancouver and wanted a place we could relax and take in the "vibe" of Anchorage. We found Walkabout to be the place - friendly hosts, good breakfasts and easy walk into the city centre. We ran a B&B in Australia for 10 years and know how hard it... More

Me and my lady friend had a great five day stay at this B&B in August of 2013. Sandy was very nice and accommodating, as well as informative. Before we came she told us about the best places to rent a car at great prices (for Alaska, that is. The car rental place actually took us to the Airport for... More

We stayed at Walkabout in May and we're very pleased with the great help Walkabout provided us with. We had a great bed and a delicious home-cooked breakfast every morning. And Terry was kind enough to drop us off at the train station at 6.15 am! Well worth your money!

We had a very enjoyable two night stay at Walkabout. The room was fine, the breakfasts were excellent, and our hosts were friendly and helpful. These were our first two nights in Alaska and around the breakfast table we got a lot of useful travel info from our hosts and the other guests. The Walkabout gets a strong recommendation from...

The Walkabout Town B&B is run by the Stimsons. Sandy and Terry founded it some twenty years ago to accomodate globetrotters like themselves. Now their son Scott runs it in a very professional manner when he spends the summer in Anchorage. I had the "Australian Room" which would easily sleep three people all to myself with a private bath. Everything... More

What a wonderful review! Thank you for your kind description of our B&B. It is necessary to clarify that we provide breakfast bags for guests departing too early in the morning to eat our scrumptious cooked breakfast. We do not provide lunch bags. More

We stayed 2 nights at the Walkabout - the hosts were great, breakfast was delicious, and they even allowed us to store a salmon we caught in their freezer for 3 days while we traveled to Denali and back! Would definitely recommend.

I booked a three-day stay at Walkabout B&B. Scott was outstanding in understanding and accommodating my "special needs" when making the reservation. A medical condition required me to cancel our trip. Scott refunded our deposit the same day I notified him of the cancellation. He invited us to consider them if and when we rebook our trip. We will!
