This was our first try at a B&B. My wife and I never really were that into trying one. Who wants a room in someone elses house? But we saw the reviews and prices of the hotels in Seward, and we'd be paying considerably more for kind of skanky places.
The first thing we noticed was the sign to take your shoes off. Apparently that's a custom in Alaska and that is their choice after all it was their place. But it still kind of sucks. I don't like having to put shoes on and off a million times to come and go.
Soo greeted us and immediately asked a series of rapid fire questions. "Where did you come from", "When are you leaving", "Why aren't you staying longer", "What are you doing tomorrow". My wife was VERY put off by this "interrogation". We were tired and just wanted to go to our room. I tried to convince her that's just her way of being friendly.
Our room upstairs was very clean. In fact the whole place was very new and modern and clean. The bed was comfortable too. The TV was minuscule with a built in VCR player, but a good selection of channels. Although I got Wi-Fi connected with that ridiculously long security code (24 alpha-numeric characters... entered twice), I was unable to "see" the internet.
Breakfast was definitely the highlight of the stay, and I'd say she takes pride in this aspect.
All in all, I don't think B&B life is for us, but this one was a good one. If we went again, we'd probably take our chances with one of the hotels. Maybe if we had the privacy of her unit across the street we'd have a better take on it.
