My husband and I just got back from Fairbanks Alaska. We stayed at a B&B, called "Downtown Log Cabin Hideaway". It was horrible,
1. They were suspose to pick us up at the airport, said to just call when we landed. We did, and they did not answer the phone, so we spent the night at the airport. Finally, at 5:30am someone showed up, and they wanted to charge for a full nights stay!!!!!!!!!!!
2. The owners tried to up the price of the room when we got there.
3. The owner, Allen Fleming, was cursing, yelling, degrading his guests the whole time we were there ( 9 nights), even taking the Lord's name in vein, many, many, many times.
4.Would not pick up trash or clean room
5. THE OWNER, ALAN FLEMING, CAME INTO OUR ROOM WITHOUT KNOCKING, OR CALLING OUT, I DID NOT HAVE ANY CLOTHES ON ONE DAY, HAD TO ASK, OR DEMAND HIM TO LEAVE.

apfvrf, owner at Downtown Log Cabin Hideaway Bed and Breakfast - Fairbanks, Alaska, responded to this reviewResponded October 29, 2008

I feel that I must respond to this review.
This lady and her husband arrived in Fairbanks at 2:30 am. We had agreed that she would call me for a pick up when her plane arrived. I didn't want to wait for a late plane arrival at that time in the morning.
She arrived without my address or my correct phone number. She had no clue where my B and B was located.
After several hours, she found our number in an aiport brochure and called. I picked her up at 5:00 am and put her to bed. So...bad start. Incidently, no other B and B offers 2 am pickup. Just us.
She had agreed to stay in the loft of our garage for a reduced price. She understood that it was just that...a loft without a toilet. We had installed a porta potty. She had to use the house's bathroom. This was all agreed to far in advance. For this the price was greatly reduced.
Next...she insisted that she be allowed to use the main kitchen to cook. After taking over the kitchen for one evening, we asked her to
stop. The kitchen use wasn't part of the agreement. So feelings are hurt. We are off to a terrible start.
It was agreed that I could empty the porta potty daily. This was difficult because she was always there. The day in question...I felt that she was gone. I remember her husband leaving so I went up the stairs to empty the pot and she raised her head from the couch. All that was visible was her head but she began screeching.
The next day when she came to use the house toilet...she began screeching at me. I responded in kind and asked her to leave and gladly refunded her money for the remaining days. I don't know what she did for the remaining day but wherever she went, it likely was 4-5 times more than she was paying us.
I truely feel like we bent over backward for this lady and her response was so uncalled for. I feel that I was punished for trying to help this lady.
We had over 500 guests stay with us last summer and only one bad experience. Our prices are among the lowest in town and we even gave her a reduced price on top of that.
For this lady and for us...it wasn't fun at all.
I regret getting upset but her accusation of intuding on her privacy was so uncalled for.
Al and Verna....owners.
