I stayed at the Walkabout Town B&B twice as I liked it so much. Very friendly and helpful hosts - comfort beds in nice rooms and a great breakfast. If as I had to do - leave early in the morning a great brown bag breakfast is made for you and left in the frig for your pickup. Laundry machine... More

We stayed for a few nights. Scott and his family are very friendly and accommodating The layout of the house and rooms is a bit hodgepodge and odd. Also the housekeeping come and go somewhat unannounced...but very nice and friendly. The location is a long 13 block walk from downtown. It is also a bit of a walk to the... More

Lodging is expensive in Anchorage but this was a good value. The owners are very nice people, their breakfast was well prepared and changed from day to day. The room we had was on the lower level at the back, so the only window opened out under the upstairs porch so one couldn't see anything but the underside of the... More

Spent three nights there last week. The entire family are wonderful hosts. Spotless well decorated rooms with comfortable common areas. Always there to offer advice about what to do in the area and the breakfasts were great. A neighborhood park with swings and climbing areas for the kids is right next door with a dog park and the Chester Creek... More

This Bed and Breakfast is walkable to downtown Anchorage - it's located thirteen blocks to downtown ... The breakfast was good, and Scott was very friendly. It is not as nice as any of the other bed and breakfasts we stayed in while traveling in Alaska. Our room was downstairs, smelled musty, and was quite dark. We stayed at one... More

Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Lots of info, comfortable house. Scott made the best ever sourdough pancakes fresh for breakfast. Spent ages chatting with other guests, and left very reluctantly.would certainly stay again

We would highly recommend staying here and would certainly do so again ourselves. Our arrival in Alaska started horribly as our luggage (all of it) did not make the journey with us (and we had a cruise departing the next day). However, upon arrival at the B&B, our hostess greeted us kindly, get me set-up on the WiFi so I... More

Had a 3 night stay at the start of our holiday to Alaska. Friendly welcome. Breakfasts were huge with plenty of coffee to start of the day. 10 minute walk into downtown Anchorage. Plenty tourist information available and family happy to give recommendations. Used the free bikes to go on the Tony Knowles Coastal trail. Thank you Sandy and family.

I hate to give this B and B even 1 star. This B and B felt so unsafe that we actually called a friend to stay at their house instead of stay in our room, which was a basement with beds tossed in and "private baths" across the house (under the stairs). The service was horrible. It took 45 minutes... More

tstimson, Owner at Walkabout Town B&B, responded to this review

In 26 years of hosting guests at our B&B we have never had a guest use this type of excuse to assume a refund when they have found they can stay at a friend’s house. Of course we have a cancellation policy, and you can forfeit your deposit. However, without a cancellation, you are responsible for the full rate of... More

We stayed twice in this excellent bed and breakfast on our way out to Unalaska and on our way back from Homer heading to Vancouver It was one of the highlights (and there were many) of our stay in Alaska. Why? Because of the perfection that everyone involved in the B&B seeks to achieve in welcoming their guests - whether... More
