My Mom and I arrived in Fairbanks, expecting a B and B that was closer to the downtown area (The name is Fairbanks Downtown Bed and Breakfast). I agree with the other person who posted that the area looked "seedy". We had arrived after flying 3000+ miles for our Alaska Vacation. We weren't sure where the front door was but we soon found it because there was piece of white paper on a door with our name on it (the door was unlocked and we walked in) there was no one there to greet us but we found our way up a dimly lit flight of stairs to a common living area, looked around to get our bearings ( I am 45 years old and my Mom is 65 yrs old and I have to admit it was a bit overwhelming to be in a strange house 3,000 miles from home with no one to greet us, looking for our room) We found our room because once again there was another piece of paper that had our name on it attached to a door to the right of the living area. We went into a dimly lit room with a sloping ceiling that had some kind of framed window there that lifted and that was called the skylight. As we went into to room the curtain fell off the "skylight" window. Th room had been described as a deluxe room with antiques and a skylight without any mention of the fact that it was not in the Downtown Area.The so-called Antiques were what appeared to be furniture that was just worn out and needed updated. We went back outside the establishment and proceeded to contact the owner by phone (she was not located on the premises) and asked her if she had any different area for us to stay. She said no that this was her only bed and breakfast. She stated that it shouldn't matter too much that we weren't pleased with the room because we were only going to be sleeping there anyway. I asked for a refund so that we could go somewhere else and she refused to give a refund. She said we should just go up there and go to sleep and things will be better in the morning. We made other arrangements, we did not stay there. That was on 7/17/10. In the end, we had a good vacation after all (determined not to let this ruin our trip to Alaska) As of this date 7/27/10 she still refuses to refund our money that we paid to her in advance even though we were very unsatisfied and did not stay.
