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.
