A hidden gem in downtown Anchorage
This is my second time staying at this property, the first being in 2018. The breakfast is still great. Rooms are comfortable. Note that it’s a shared bathroom and no parking onsite, but neither were issues for us. Great value and great location.

I loved the homey, true bed and breakfast feel of the place. It was overall charming. The room was small but clean. It would have been nice to have a fridge for guests in the common areas. The breakfast was lovely and fresh and the view was great. Great location was convenient to downtown.
