It doesn't look like much, in fact we almost missed it if not for Ernesto's Mexican restaurant which fills the ground floor. Our room was very large with three beds and was perfect for our family. It was much larger than a normal,hotel room so it was perfect. It was clean and functional but it was warm and muggy and...

We stayed here for three nights while we were in Valdez. The building is a bit odd - the B&B occupies the top two floors, while the on bottom floor is Ernesto's Mexican Restaurant and a beauty salon. We would describe the place as being "different" - you had to take your shoes off before going upstairs so as not...

The owner of this hotel is a flat out liar. I called and canceled my reservation within 48 hours as they said was their policy however they still charged me for the rooms. When I called, the owner literally lied to me over the phone and said I never called. Do not stay here. The owner is not trustworthy.

Pros - large, clean room, cheapest place in town, really good breakfast. The staff in the restaurant downstairs (owned by the same folks) were great. Cons - never saw owner again after checking in, including when I needed a hair dryer. It's Alaska, and Valdez is never warm. Being able to dry your hair is a must. The best room...

When travelling through Valdez we stayed here one night. The Service was great compared for the price. Location was great near the main museum and walking distance to supermarket and the ferry point. They made us a special breakfast burrito to take on the early morning ferry.

We were worried a little bit before arriving after reading the review. It turns out to be not a bad at all. I called the owner to book rooms and the lady is very nice and helpful. She also provides me some Alaska tips. When we arrived, we talked with the restaurant people as the owner told me and they...

We spent three nights at this B&B while seeing the sites of Valdez. The staff was very friendly and the service and food in the restaurant was very good. Make sure you bring your house slippers because the managements requests that you not wear shoes on the carpet. The room consisted of a queen bed, dresser, nightstand and cable TV....

We were going to be arriving late so I called to give them a heads up - I was only able to leave a voicemail. As I recall, when I booked several months in advance, I emailed first but did not recieve a response. I then called to book the room and then received a response to my email after...
