“Economic but non-standard B&B”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here because the hotels in town were outrageously priced. Location was good to downtown, but totally non standard to other B&Bs and I've stayed at many. There was no one around and no breakfast in the cluttered kitchen. It was dark and empty at a time when there should have been help and the breakfast I paid for with my night's stay. Found that very odd and disappointing. Furnishings are very old as are the linens. Shared bathroom was OK if you don't have expectations of a hostel like atmosphere. On a positive note when I did meet the owner it was her daughters I saw first. They were very sweet. Wouldn't stay here again though.

They walked the careful line of friendly and unobtrusive amazingly well, making us feel like we were friends visiting, while still giving us our space. Even though we arrived at 1:30 AM, they had someone there to greet us and show us around. The yard is overgrown, but it's picturesque in its "Alaska prairie" look. They checked on us to make sure we were doing well and were helpful in every respect. Walking distance to just about everything we needed, and very knowledgeable in what to see or do. Would definitely stay there again!

Marge and her daughters welcomed us just as family. WE had the larger of the suites which was two bedrooms,living room and kitchen. We were traveling with bicycles which needed storage and assembling. Her garage was the perfect answer.
This B&B is close to downtown in a very desirable neighborhood, and is also close to the popular coastal trail which we loved to bicycle on. Definitely recommend this for traveling families. Well stocked kitchen for breakfast. Also, there was a washer and dryer for our use.

We enjoyed our stay at this homey bed and breakfast because our hosts were so friendly and we felt like we were part of the family and enjoyed hearing about their upcoming pageant, and competitions. The room was actually a large apartment and very comfortable. Breakfast was available anytime in our kitchen, and we liked have a laundry across the hall. Walking to downtown along the ocean was a treat, and we enjoyed the sight-seeing tips and restaurant recommended by our host. Don't miss the museum. We like the seclusion and quiet of this bed and breakfast and would recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: Choose the exec suite - it is a big apartment and terrific value

Enjoyed my short business trip to Anchorage. This was not a typical American hotel, more like European homestyle. Enjoyed family suggestions. Great location to walk along ocean downtown. Very friendly price. Privacy, comfort. Happy with my stay.

Just a quick trip in winter - cold, but beautiful. B&B was very well priced - hidden in trees - close to downtown and ski trails. Room was very reasonably priced. Hostess was so helpful with suggestions for my stay - great restaurant tips and I particularly appreciated the tip to cross country ski on the ocean trail just a block from the home. Clean, comfortable, convenient - not just a hotel, but a personal home with Alaskan charm
