So you’ve planned your dream vacation to Alaska, but where to stay? Whether you are just staying overnight for a good night’s sleep before embarking on a big Alaska adventure, or staying for a week or more, the options for lodging are plentiful. You will find accommodations ranging from affordable hostels, hotels and motels for travelers on a budget, to all-inclusive wilderness lodges and resorts for those looking for a bit of luxury in the Last Frontier. Most travelers will find an assortment of hotels to choose from in any major destination they visit, many of which allow guests to drop off luggage and bags before checking in, which is especially convenient when disembarking a cruise ship and allows time to explore town.
Travelers looking to save can find an array of discounts on hotels and rental cabins, even during the busy summer season. Stay at one of Alaska’s charming bed & breakfasts and get to know authentic Alaska from the perspective of friendly locals. For those traveling by car or motorhome, Alaska’s roads and highways are a great way to explore the state, and one can find campgrounds and RV parks conveniently located along the way. Be sure to check a travel guide, such as the Milepost, as some of Alaska’s highways have fewer amenities than others.
