The Annie Mae was an excellent place to stay. I am unable to comment on the value/price aspects of it as we stayed there as part of a package tour, however, like most things in Alaska, prices seemed a bit steep, but it seems only fair considering the difficulties with getting supplies, etc... to such a remote location. The location is very nice. They are tucked away near forests and meadows and have access to a beautiful sand flat/tidal flat area that leads down to the ocean. There are beautiful wild flowers and in late july there are TONS of wild strawberries to pick in nearby fields. We saw bear prints in the nearby sand flats, but no bears and supposedly a moose has been known to show up from time to time. The rooms are average sized with nice bathrooms. They suffer a little bit from water pressure and hot water supply issues during times of high demand (when our group of 10 all tried to shower at once we all ran out of water). There is a very nice lobby/sitting area with many books about local attractions and books to borrow for general reading. They do have wifi, but the signal is very weak in the rooms and is $5 a day. The food was very good to outstanding. They make their own spruce tip syrup that makes breakfast wonderful. Dinners were generally very good (not outstanding), using a lot of local seafood and well cooked steaks. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful with great knowledge of local activities. They offer free use bicycles to get around "town." My only complaint is that the location is a bit removed from the center of town and they only real way of getting around is by bicycle, which is a bit problematic if the weather is bad or you don't feel like biking. Overall, though, this is a great place to stay, its clean, well run, and has a very homey, comfortable feel.
