The Nome Nugget Inn was like something out of a novel. The place is an enigma. I guess you could say this is a beachside resort, as the property is located right next to the Bering Sea. Unfortunately, when I was there, both the sea and beach were covered in ice so thick that folks were driving trucks and other vehicles on its hopefully extra thick surface.
The Inn's interior is rather dark, and the rooms are on the small side. Think "modest and cozy".TV and internet service were ok, and my room remained warm throughout my stay, which was most important, as temperature wise, Nome remained at or below zero during most of my stay. The owner-occupants for the most part were nice to me, but I did hear of encounters between certain members of the extended family and guests that were not so pleasant. The Inn is located on the main drag, and within easy walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and Nome's extensive selection of taverns. I would like to stay there during the summer when I could actually look out the window of my room and see the beach!
