Susitna Place
Ranked #6 of 126 Anchorage B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Having stayed at the Captain Cook Hotel on two occasions, this B&B was good alternative I would use again. Little tricky to find the small street leading to the Susitna but ample parking is found once there. Owners are interesting and efficiently run the operation. We had a room with private bath just up the landing and at the left down a very short hall--recommend that room. The living and dining communal area is comfortable and nice. For good weather, the deck off the living room is nice place to watch the sunset, have a cigar if you like, and to hope to see Mt. McKinley rise above clouds in the far distance if you are lucky.

Better restaurants of Anchorage are within 5-15 minute walks. Snow Cafe for breakfast and lunch is just 5 minutes and highly recommended as sort of hip truly local eatery.

Breakfast at the B&B is ample and satisfactory. I dislike B&B's with a 1000 rules and creepy owners--this isn't one of those. I would stay here again if visiting Anchorage again--no need to spend twice as much for unremarkable hotel like Captain Cook unless bellhops and more business services are necessary. For personal travel I'd opt for Susitna--for business maybe the larger hotels.

We rented the Susitna Suite for my husband, myself and my mom. It worked out great! We had a view of the ocean from the suite, and the bedroom was a separate room from the living room that had a hide-a-bed. Also there is a separate door from the living room to the bath as well as one from the bedroom so it was very easy for the 3 of us to stay in it. The breakfast was good, the owners very nice, and we enjoyed staying there very much.

Room Tip: The Susitna suite was very nice. The other rooms looked nice as well and the entire place was quiet...

This is a nicely situated B&B within a 10 minute flat, easy walk of downtown Anchorage in a quiet location. We had the St. Elias room with a shared bathroom which was considerably cheaper than the rooms with ensuite and not at all an inconvenience having to share. Room was small but nicely furnished with a nice guest's lounge on the upper level available for all to share. Very clean rooms and bathroom with nice linen and towels. Great views out over the harbour and to Mt. Susitna. Breakfast was a nice mix of fresh fruits, cereals, juice yoghurt, fresh breads and pastries.

We stayed 3 night & the view was ever changing. The best location with an unbelievable view of the Cook's Inlet, etc. Our room & bed were good (the room was a little warm at night) with a large Bath Room & lots of hot water. Linda was very helpful in many ways. If you like to walk or ride a bike you are close to almost everything in downtown Anchorage. Linda had goodies out in the afternoon like cookies & tea, etc. The breakfast was adequate. It is a little hard to find the first time. The house sits almost above the Tony Knolls Trail. We would go back to Susitna Place again !

Room Tip: Any room. The view is from the Living Room, Dining Room & Balcony.

We stayed at Susitna Place for one night in June during our 3 week road journey of Alaska but we wished we could have stayed longer. Everything is so clean and homely and Linda is a wonderful host, answering all our questions and offering advice. It is within easy walking distance of downtown Anchorage.
We sat outside in the evening on the balcony enjoying the beautiful view of Cook Inlet, even saw Mt. McKinley so clear, and the same again the following morning from the dining area, where we had a beautiful breakfast, all so fresh and healthy. Although you are in a neighbourhood it is very quiet and peaceful. The covered parking was a plus.

Stayed in the Katmai room which had 2 queen beds and ensuite, located on the 2nd floor of the house. bathroom clean and bright, very nice kitchen/dinning area with great views of mt susitna. The hosts Linda and David were very accommodating with our last minute changes. air canada stuffed up our flight connections so we ended up checking in past midnight (12hrs later than scheduled). Linda also packed our breakfast-to-go the next day as we had to depart early morning to catch the park connection motorcoach to Denali. Taxi from accom to Egan convention center costs ~USD4. Taxi from airport to accom costs ~USD20. despite spending only about 5 hours at Susitna place, we had a comfortable stay and a good rest. recommended.

We spent several nights in Susitna Place during our recent visit to Alaska. This was our 3 stay in Susitna Place. It is ideally located near attractions and restaurants in downtown Anchorage. Linda is so helpful and has a wealth of knowledge about Alaska in general and Anchorage in particular...want to know anything about Alaska and where to go and what to see, ask Linda. The bedrooms are comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed the breakfasts very much - the different breads and sausage were a real treat. Thanks Linda for making out stay more enjoyable.

Room Tip: All the rooms are top notch. We preferred the private bath but we also stayed a couple of nights in...
