Charming inn with great food. Carol, the manager/owner, was friendly and helpful. We had a great time visiting with her and with other guests. We had a bit of trouble finding it at first (GPS gave lousy directions), but it's actually quite convenient to downtown. The neighborhood is business/urban services, but the inn itself is beautifully landscaped and maintained. We'd...

Thank you for visiting our "hidden treasure" here in downtown Anchorage. It is our wonderful guests that make our inn a delightful place to be.

We had booked this place for 2 nights. Although the inn is clean , it does not have blackout curtains. On asking the manager , she said that this is how you enjoy Alaska ! On making a request to heat some cold milk in the morning , the snappy manager got stressed and asked me to wait even when...

Thank you for pointing out where I need to make adjustments. As one can imagine, It is difficult to share our rather small kitchen with guests when preparing breakfast for up to 30 others. For that reason alone, our kitchen is typically not available for guest use during the busy breakfast hours.

Interested in seeing the seedier side of Anchorage? Enjoy a place with paper thin walls? Find it charming to be told that you can't wear shoes in your room? Love to try to sleep in a room without dark window coverings so that the Alaskan twilight keeps it bright enough to read all night? Are the late night (early morning)...

Certainly we disappointed you in so many areas. The Sheraton, a proverbial stone's throw away from us, would perhaps have been a better match for your needs. We never hope to disappoint our guests. Thank you for letting us know of our shortcomings, some within our control, other not.

The room we booked had a shared bathroom, which was fine as we nevery clashed with anyone in the other three rooms that shared it. There are other rooms with their own facilities available as well. We received a very warm welcome from Carol who couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast that is included was delicious with plenty to choose...

Thank you for taking the time to review Arctic Fox Inn. We do have two bedrooms that share one bath. I am sorry that you were misled to believe that three rooms of guests were all sharing the same bath. We trust you enjoyed your holiday to Alaska!

This B&B was super clean and comfortable, very good breakfast every morning. Everything from frittata to fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade breads & muffins!! Our host Paula was very helpful and gave us some good pointers on must sees. My mother & I enjoyed our stay and we were within walking distance to downtown & restaurants!!

My husband and I stayed at the Arctic Fox Inn for 2 nights in June and it was fabulous. The room was beautiful and had an incredibly comfortable bed. The breakfast was great--definitely substantial enough to fuel a day of hiking. The inn is tucked away at the edge of downtown, but certainly within walking distance. At the end of...

This is a charming B&B located a few short blocks away from the downtown tourist section. Our room was exceptionally clean and neat as was the rest of the house. There were three outside patio areas to sit or eat, which we didn't use because of the cold weather in June. We enjoyed a full hot breakfast, including eggs with...

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay in our one bedroom self-contained suite. It was very functional, very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was really lovely and filling. Arctic Fox is very well located to walk to downtown Anchorage and everyone was so helpful from our initial inquiry to booking to check-in. We would definitely stay at Arctic Fox again...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our property sits on the edge of downtown Anchorage overlooking the Cook Inlet, AK Railroad train depot, Ship Creek (urban salmon fishing!), Historic Government Hill, and one of the only water towers in Alaska. The call of seagulls and a light, salty breeze will remind guests that they're near the ocean, while distant train whistles and the sound of bush planes pay homage to The Last Frontier. Our multiple decks and outdoor seating areas are a great place to relax with your group and enjoy all the perks of being so close to the city and wilderness, which means you can simultaneously take in views of the city and uninhabited mountain ranges.We offer a range of upscale room options, from private rooms with a shared bath to complete two bedroom suites with living area, kitchen & fireplace. All of the beds feature pillow top mattresses with quality linens and luxurious down duvets. ... more   less

“The area may look a bit scary as it is downtown. But we were never concerned. A homeless shelter or soup kitchen is nearby but we were not bothered by anyone. Upon making my reservation the owner/manager called me and suggested we upgrade from a studio unit to the two bedroom apartment since there were four of us. The upgrade cost was minimum and we are so glad we did. We are sure we were much more comfortable.”
