First I will have to say this place is clean, comfortable and all around a very nice establishment. The breakfast we had was excellent. However, I cannot recommend this B&B because of the very strict cancellation policy it holds. I am a person who plans ahead. My husband and I had a retirement road trip planned from Ohio to Alaska and back. This was a 30+ day trip planned for the entire month of July into Aug. I made our reservations one by one during the winter months for the coming summer. I used Trip Advisor as my main guide to these reservations. After our reservations were made for 2 nights in Fairbanks, we read more info on The Top of the World road which we were planning on driving. Deciding this might be a very long drive that we would enjoy taking a bit slower we decided on a night in Tok, giving up one of our nights in Fairbanks to do this. Well, 5 MONTHS before our reservation date we changed from two nights to one night at Dale & Jo's. We were promptly charged over $50 in cancellation fees. I completely understand the need for cancellation policies, but we both felt this was entirely uncalled for. We still had a bad feeling about this when we checked in that July. My husband said something to Jo about the excessive cancellation policy and had a very frank discussion. She did, in her defense, refund the charge after seeing how unhappy we were about it. In all my reservations (and we have traveled a lot over the years), I have never come across a policy this strict. So in a nut shell I'd have to say, don't book very far ahead because once you do you are LOCKED IN. Personally we will not be staying there again for the cancellation policy is just WAY TOO STRICT! I understand these policies are to protect the B&B, but 5 months out being charged over $50 to change from 2 nights to 1 is totally uncalled for.
