“5-STAR QUALITY !”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

This B & B - owned & operated by Carole & Bill Denkinger is 'the cats meow' !

They are the perfect host n' hostess ... it is apparent they have thot of everything that travelers might need / desire - and they are both very upbeat & interesting people.

The room we stayed in (The Sitka Rose) was nicely decorated - comfy & 'warm' - with a HUGE kingsize bed that you melt into.

This is in a quiet central location - we rented a car (Avis gives a discount if you stay here) - and/but - you can walk into town.

The FULL breakfasts are 'gourmet' quality - due to the excellence of Chef Wilhelm ! = fresh fruit/s - abelskivers - German pancakes - waffles - muffins - granolas - muesli - yogurts - juice ... the works ! Annnd good 'stout' java !

And... I should mention - the collection of Native American art & crafts is like a mini-museum = awesome !

This was a perfect place to continue & have the finale to our 50th anniversary trip to Alaska !

Good size house on a quite street with a great view of the ocean/bay. Our bedroom was large & well appointed. Had our own bath room down the hall, good, large & clean. Outstanding breakfast each morning, everything seemed to be home made ! We would stay again. Carol & John the greatest !!

Room Tip: All rooms must be able to climb stairs.

Couldn't have asked for more... 4-star rating due to possible issues for some to access the rooms (must be able to climb stairs). Before even talking about the lovely, comfortable rooms, I have to give kudos to Carol and John, and staff. Carol is a wealth of information, with a
passion for being friendly, helpful and accomodating. John, while being on the quieter side, is equally anxious to please with a delicious morning menu.

The B&B is perfectly located in a quiet residential area, just outside of the main business district... remember Sitka is only about 12 miles, end to end. And.... yes, you can actually see the ocean from the upstairs rooms, which I highly recommend reserving.

My mother's lower-level room was equally spacious and comfortable, with large garden view windows and a step-out door to the lovely patio, hot tub and flower garden. The Ocean View B&B will definitely be my repeat choice, if I ever visit Sitka again.

Room Tip: Recommend the spacious and romantic Dogwood room on the second floor... great ocean view and balcony...

Recently my husband and I scheduled a last minute visit to Sitka. We prefer friendly, small, hospitable inns and B&Bs over large tour-group/business-oriented hotels so were delighted to find that the Alaska Ocean View Bed and Breakfast had one room open for our dates of stay. I easily can recommend this B&B to visitors to Sitka. Located on a quiet residential street, the inn is a pleasant spot to come home to after a long day spent exploring Sitka. In summertime flowers and little waterfalls abound on the property, cheery welcoming touches for guests. Owner Carol is extremely accommodating, ready and willing to offer suggestions for local activities or share her amusing stories of life in Alaska. Bone tired and jet lagged when we arrived in Sitka, Carol instantly put us at ease with her warm, happy personality.

Rooms are comfortable; we were lodged in the Forget Me Not guest room. Located downstairs, there is not a view per se but a patio with summer flowers, a tiny waterfall and chairs sits just outside the door leading outside. A hot tub is located near this room. Our room was small and cozy with a comfortable chair for lounging, a small table and two chairs, a small refrigerator and a television. A very nice touch was that when Carol found out I prefer Pepsi to coffee or tea in the morning she placed several cans of my favorite soft drinks into the room refrigerator. Thoughtful touches such as this go a long way. Another plus is that there were two folding luggage racks in my room. I travel with my husband; often we have to settle for one suitcase placed on a rack and one on the floor, a pet peeve of mine so it was very nice to find two luggage racks in our room. Both the bed and bedding were very comfortable. Coffee and a coffeemaker are placed in the rooms for convenience. We found the bedroom and en suite bathroom to be spotless. Ample bath supplies and towels/washcloths were available in the bathroom.

Breakfast is included. Seating is at a communal table in the great room where the filling, tasty breakfasts are served. One morning we were scheduled to leave the inn at 5:30 am. Since this was too early for breakfast, Carol asked if we would like a take along breakfast or lunch, providing a page long list of what she could offer us, yet another example of her exceptionally gracious hospitality. A nice touch is that cookies are set out daily for guests in the great room, perfect for when one's sweet tooth needs a fix.

One caveat....The inn has stairs leading to the rooms so be prepared to haul luggage up or down stairs to one's room. I am not certain whether there is an elevator. Also, the inn is located a distance from town so a rental car is recommended. One can use a taxi but frankly it is more economical to rent a car during one's stay at Alaska Ocean View B&B. Parking is on the street plus there are two spaces for guests' cars in the front driveway.

Alaska Ocean View Bed and Breakfast is what Alaska is all about, friendly people and warm, accommodating hospitality. I hope you enjoy your stay!

We had a great stay at the Oceanview B&b! They were extremely helpful, and very accommodating for our young family. Breakfast was excellent! We will definitely stay here again.

Two years ago, while working in Ketchikan, I flew to Sitka and stayed three days. This year, at the end of the tourist season, I arrived by ferry, which was a fabulous trip through the narrow passages. I was pleased to return to Alaska View. Nothing had really changed, which was fine. Attractive and comfortable rooms, beautiful decor and delicious breakfast. It is fun and informative to sit and chat with Carole. That blasted shuttle bus to the ferry did not show and they did not answer their phone.Carole called me a taxi and I was on my way. Only stayed one night this time, but it helped make my ferry voyage most worthwhile.

Loved the peace and quiet at this B&B! Booking direct with Carole via email was easy and she was very helpful. There are 4 guest rooms - we had Fireweed Room downstairs which does not have a waterview, looks out to rear courtyard. Room rather crowded with furniture etc but comfortable and very quiet. Small ensuite; shower head very high on wall and not height adjustable; had to report lack of water drainage in bath/shower – up to ankles! A plentiful breakfast is supplied with lots of sweet things; Bill was happy to provide some plain food for us on request. Located some way from town centre - approx 20-25mins walk into downtown; close to Lakeside shopping center with large supermarket (corner of Halibut Point Rd and Moller/Katlian). Can recommend Sea Otter & Wildlife cruise with Allen Marine – www.allenmarine.com – we saw so much wildlife, even in poor weather conditions.
