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

We had an excellent stay here! Our room was on the ground floor, king bed, private bath. There was a nice shared sitting area outside of our room. Breakfasts were excellent and we met so many interesting people, including the owners and their family. Would definitely recommend this as an alternate to over priced hotels. We could easily walk into... More

My wife and I stayed at Walkabout Town B&B during July long weekend in 2014 for just one night on our way to Seward. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood in Anchorage. We were hosted by Scott and Sandy Stimson. We reached at their home very late in the night but Scott was still around to help us out... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and spent 2 weeks in Alaska. We spent the last few days in Anchorage and stayed at Walkabout Town B&B. What a wonderful stay! Our room was very comfortable and we had a private bathroom, which was so nice. The family was so friendly and accommodating and breakfast was fabulous! We were... More

This was our first experience with a B &B, and we were not sure what to expect. We were very satisfied with our experience. Good location, within walking distance of downtown. Property was clean and well maintained. Hosts were pleasant and informative. Breakfast was great. Would recommend.
