Places to Stay

You’ve planned your dream vacation to Alaska, but where to stay? Whether you’re looking for a simple spot for good night’s sleep before embarking on a big backcountry adventure, or you'd like to lounge in luxury for a week at a wilderness lodge, the options for lodging are plentiful. You will find accommodations ranging from affordable hostels and motels for travelers on a budget, to high-end hotels with all the amenities in beautiful settings, to all-inclusive wilderness lodges and resorts for those looking for a bit of luxury in the backcountry. Most travelers will find an assortment of nationally and locally-owned hotels to choose from in any major destination they visit, many of which allow guests to drop off luggage before checking in - especially convenient when disembarking a cruise ship so you can explore town.

Stay at one of Alaska’s charming bed & breakfasts and get to know authentic Alaska from the perspective of friendly locals. Cabins are also an iconic place to stay in Alaska, ranging from rustic cabins in quiet backcountry locations to luxurious and comfortable all-inclusive cabins. For those traveling by car or motorhome, Alaska’s roads and highways are a great way to explore the state, and many campgrounds and RV parks are 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.

From comfortable and convenient to unique and luxurious, explore some of the best places to stay in Alaska below.
