Great place. I'm half way through a 10-day stay in Fairbanks, and this B&B is like home. It'll be hard to leave! Comfortable, clean, friendly. Guests from all over -- Netherlands, Germany, California, Alabama, Pennsylvania, so far -- are coming and going and maintaining a friendly atmosphere. Yet I feel great privacy in my bright room with the summer twilight...

I wish I had read the other reviews before booking our rooms. This was our first stop in AK, so it could only get better. I actually never saw Carolyn. She was not there when we arrived & we found our way to our rooms via sticky notes placed on doors, walls & furniture. The info sheet stated that tea...

This B&B is stuck in the 60s. Pros: the bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. Good selection of cereal at breakfask. We are not really egg eaters, so healthy cereal and fruit is fine with us. Hostess is friendly and helpful when you see her, but she is downstairs and guest are upstairs with little contact. Cons: On the...

Carolyn and her husband(don't know his name as we weren't told it). are in the wrong business. Carolyn is not forthcoming with any information about Fairbanks. my hubby and I wanted to meet like minded travellers but were the only guests all weekend. We both felt like we were intruding on their home not made to feel welcome at all....

My Mom and I arrived in Fairbanks, expecting a B and B that was closer to the downtown area (The name is Fairbanks Downtown Bed and Breakfast). I agree with the other person who posted that the area looked "seedy". We had arrived after flying 3000+ miles for our Alaska Vacation. We weren't sure where the front door was but...

It says downtown but it is a fair walk downtown across a busy highway. However, we had a beautiful room and the neighbourhood was quiet. The breakfast was rather ordinary and the hostess pleasant. It would be best to have a car as it isn't really close to much. We had an ensuite. There was a kitchen and internet for...

It's a little off the main drag of hotels and restaurants, but if you're looking for a quiet place to get off your feet, and not be disturbed but close enough to walk to major dining and shopping, this is a good spot. It's clean, rooms furnished with mostly antiques, nice area rugs, and clean bathroom with plenty of towels....

The Downtown B&B is a pleasant, economical place to stay in Fairbanks. Carolyn, the host, is courteous, friendly, and professional, and made our stay very enjoyable. The B&B is a few blocks from downtown, just a block south of Airport Way, a major street in Fairbanks. Guest rooms are upstairs, and guests also have access to a full kitchen (sink,...

Was greeted by the owner and made to feel welcome. The rooms are on the second floor. both couples had a nice room w/ bath. rooms were freshened while we were out. breakfast was cereal, melon, muffins and beverages. enough to start the day. Had a great stay here, not new but clean and comfy

The neighbourhood surrounding this B & B is a bit seedy, and so I was a bit worried as we approached it. The previous reviewer is correct, the bedrooms are located in a separate part of the house. I did not find this to be a huge turn off as we are generally looking for clean, safe accomodation, and that...
