We stayed one night at the Girdwood Guest House. It was a nice place in a lovely area, but a bit cramped if one were to stay longer than a night or two. The rooms are downstairs and the owners live upstairs. You enter into the kitchen/living space area. The first room is a not-very-large rectangle with the kitchen on the right side of the rectangle and a couch, chair and TV on the left. The couch (or was it a futon?) opens into a bed. You walk through this room to enter the bedroom which has two beds - one was a king - I think (very comfortable), and the other a fairly uncomfortable queen. The beds are located with the king against the wall, and the queen on the opposite wall, with a space between them to pass through. There are no windows in this room, so the late sunlight hours are not a problem, but it's also not as nice a room for daytime hanging out. To get to the bathroom you go through this bedroom. The place was clean and the owners pleasant. Breakfast was left in the fridge and on the counter (as with many places in Alaska) - homemade sourdough bread, hard boiled eggs, hot and cold cereal, yogurt and apples. Perfect for our travelling needs, but I would not have enjoyed it as much if that were our final destination for a week.
