We began researching places to stay in Anchorage in May and saw the many glowing reviews for Anchorage Downtown B&B on Tripadvisor. After reading 4 or 5, we thought it sounded great so we booked rooms for our stay in August. Big Mistake!
If you go back to reviews in July 2009 you will see the real condition of the property. (In fact, the real condition of the property is also revealed in older reviews too). The reviews from June and August of this year are also on the mark. Even though the management of Anchorage Downtown B&B claims that the pictures from the June review are not of the B&B and/or are pictures of a “private” area, they are consistent with the ones we took (attached to this review) when we toured guest areas of the place.
We really find it difficult to believe that the people who wrote the glowing reviews for this property actually stayed there. Like the reviewer in August, we also left without staying at the property even though the rooms were paid for. My family was disgusted with the mess, clutter, and lack of cleanliness!
I’d believe my eyes rather than the comments made by the people giving the B&B high marks.
