A Place on Coho Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 14 Valdez B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 May 2013 via mobile

The owners live at the second floor of the house and they are very friendly. The three rooms share the same bathroom (it is a huge bathroom). The rooms are very confortable and the location is perfect (maybe 4 minutes from downtown). The breakfast was excellent with a local touch (we liked it). Given that the rooms are inside the house, try to do not do the check-in late at night. I believe the price is a little high considering that it is not a cabin.

I booked A Place on Coho at the very last minute and the hosts were very accomodating. We went in and were struck by home nice the whole interior was (don't be fooled by the outside, it is in need of some repairs). They ask you take your shoes off inside, but do provide slippers and bathrobes for guests, which are both very cozy. The hosts are very friendly and put out a simple breakfast for us (muffins, cereal, yogurt, fruit, frozen waffles and pancakes). The rooms were also really nice and the beds were so comfortable. For $65 a night, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Valdez.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms available, so you might not be as lucky as I was calling last minute.

A Place on Coho is a B&B located a mile or so outside downtown Valdez. The check in-process was a little unusual -- I knocked on the door, yet nobody was home, so, I made myself at home! Usually there is a note or instructions on protocol if the owner is not there to greet. A folder with some instructions on the B&B (like wi-fi code, check in-check out time, etc. would be helpful).

The B&B is a house, the owners live upstairs and have turned the downstairs into a B&B with three bedrooms and one bathroom.

It feels as if you are staying in someone's house. There is a refrigerator, sink, coffee machine, etc.

The rooms are quiet (big plus) and the bedding is warm and nice. It's a fairly simple setup.

I wasn't sure if there was breakfast served here -- apparently in the winter a hot breakfast is not served. Nevertheless, I think the owners went out of their way to make some pancakes for me.

All in all, a Place on Coho is a simple, basic place to get a good night's sleep in Valdez. During the winter I paid $60 for a single room but I'm sure the rates go up in the winter.

We stayed here for two nights and if felt like home. The table was beautifully set for breakfast and the food was delicious - and plenty of it.
It is a family home with the downstairs part set up for guests with three rooms sharing a bathroom which was never a problem. There is a lounge area with kitchen for tea and coffee and a fridge and microwave. This area was well used and enabled the guests to socialize with each other in the evening

Room Tip: There are three rooms and I think ours was the most economical one but it was big enough for us beca...

A Place on Coho Bed and Breakfast provided great accommodation on our family's June 2011 trip to beautiful Valdez, Alaska. The B & B was easy to find, located on a quiet street away from traffic. We were provided with our own keys to the home and to our room. The rooms were very nice, with beautiful linens, and looked brand new. The beds, extremely comfortable. One room has an additional bed, for parents or grandparents traveling with children. Spa-sized bathroom, with robe and slippers provided. Common room had a small kitchen, game area, and comfortable seating for watching a wide-selection of movies on a big-screen TV. The B&B was spotless, far cleaner than any hotel I have visited. Host Diane Gibbs offered a complete breakfast, different each day, and an evening treat. She and Bobby gave us inside information on wildlife watching. The guest book showed that A Place on Coho serves families, the business traveler, fishermen, adventurers, retirees, and international visitors. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay in Valdez.

Room Tip: All rooms are roomy, quiet, nice, and comfortable
