Great place to stay in town with a very comfortable room and more than gracious host. Very clean and a terrific, terrific breakfast with veggies from the garden, perfect eggs and reindeer sausage. She was accommodating other vegetarian guests while we were there too. We made our way around the city easily with great recommendations for restaurants. Easy cab ride... More

I'm glad you mentioned vegetarians because I take pleasure in providing fresh food for everyone. I grow swiss chard, spinach and herbs in my garden which I serve for my guests who prefer a lighter meal. I keep a variety of breakfast foods especially for guests who book a longer stay. I do a pretty mean salmon eggs benedict too! More

I enjoyed my time at JoAnna. A very quiet, peaceful home with a kind host and the best breakfast ever that will keep you going for the day! (I felt a bit guilty, but could not stop eating the nut-banana muffins!:-)) Free parking and easy access to downtown as the bus is just around the corner. A great value for... More

I certainly appreciate that Eva liked my breakfasts because I do put a lot of thought into serving up some Alaskan favorites. Eva and I sat down to salmon patties and reindeer sausages plus some pretty good banana nut muffins I make in the mornings. I realize that sound travels throughout the house in the mornings when I'm up early... More

Host was very welcoming and accommodating. Good breakfast. Room was a bit small but adequate. Slept well but were close to kitchen so could hear early risers in the morning. Good value. Convenient location.

We stayed here twice, in two different rooms. Both were very comfortable and clean. There is a great shower, fluffy towels, excellent breakfast, nice living room area. Everything you can want in a b&b

Arriving just before midnight a homely note guided me to my comfortable bedroom. Chatty guests at breakfast were clearly happy with their accommodation and I soon found out why. JoAnna, our thoughtful and engaging host provided a mouth watering breakfast and the conversation flowed easily. Guidance on cycling the coastal trail was followed by the opportunity to test out a...

After our wonderful cruise, Joanna was the perfect hostess for our family of six adults needing four rooms for three nights. Convenient to both downtown and the airport, the location worked very well. The accommodations were clean and charming; beds very comfortable; breakfasts excellent; coffee strong and plentiful; company delightful. We even had movie nights! Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

The Good: Clean, comfortable, great breakfast, and delightful hostess - JoAnna. Note: Bathrooms are shared between 2 rooms-wasn't a problem for me. I can.t add much more except good value for the money spent.

My husband and I absolutely loved Planet Anchorage B&B. It was so wonderfully unpretentious and comfortable. It's in a neighborhood too which makes it 'down home'. As so many have said, JoAnna made us right at home, starting with the 'come on in' note on the front door when we arrived at 11.45 p.m. The location is convenient. It was... More

We were looking for a local place, clean, comfortable, with accessible location and not too expensive. This place is beautifully decorated with its own style. If you are bored with standard hotel setting, you will like this place. It looks actually much nicer and newer than the pictures. The bath room is clean and nice. JoAnna made us a tasty... More

JoAnna was very welcoming and helpful. The house is really nice, rooms and bathrooms very clean. Decoration is charming. The breakfast was very refreshing compare to other hotels or B&Bs, fresh fruits, home made muffin. Quiet neighbourhood, can park outside the house.
