Alaska offers typical US accommodations, along with many atypical options such as mountain cabins or luxury lodges in the middle of the wilderness. We have recommendations for all types and budgets. The price range is as follows:
68 sites along the Bear River a mile from Stewart.
This campground expanded into a ‘lodge’ in 2009 and now has superclean (if a bit small) rooms that have either ocean or river views. The campground is little more than a parking lot with a nice view...
Just across the Bertha Creek Bridge, this primitive campsite is understandably popular – site No 6 even has a waterfall view.
Some of the most comfortable rooms in town are found in this chain hotel that faces the bay. There's a slightly odd configuration for the baths (with the sink in the room), but the bay views are spectacular...
Kodiak’s largest and most upscale motel is downtown and has 81 rooms along with a fine restaurant, outdoor hot tub and airport-shuttle service. Suites run to $259 and are quite large.
Bev no longer runs this B&B, but the host often brings down muffins and fresh-baked breads for breakfast...
Just off the parking lot is a small wooded campground. Within the park, look for the à la carte Packhouse Pavilion Restaurant , which sells tasty sandwiches and baked goods.
Popular for fishing, hiking and, best of all, the sound of the bore tide rushing by your tent. Remind children and morons to stay off the deadly mud flats.
Beautiful and woodsy, this campground on the way to Portage has 13 sites that cater to tent campers.
Twenty-five sites in a scenic alpine setting north of Valdez.
A cozy place with private baths and full breakfasts; one room has a balcony overlooking the salmon-filled slough.
Your best affordable option in what passes for downtown in Fairbanks, the Bridgewater is on the Chena River and abuts a pretty riverside walking path...
This 100-year-old home from Fort Liscum was moved to Old Valdez and then to its present location after the earthquake. Even though it's about a mile from downtown, it's a clean and cozy option with four rooms...
You'll find six clean rooms and plenty of cheap beer in the adjoining Brown Bear Saloon that can get hopping at night. There are two cabins out back ($100 and $120) with kitchens.
If you can’t find your own little hideaway tent spot off the highway, this campground offers 22 not-very-private sites, a picnic shelter, drinking water and a meat rack for the hunters who invade the area in late sum...
Located at the base of the ski hill, this B&B offers two very clean rooms with private bath and a fully equipped kitchen stocked with all you need for a hearty continental breakfast.
Four miles southwest of the city, this 168-acre park includes a 15-site rustic campground, the closest to the city, along with a self-guided nature trail and good salmon fishing in the Buskin River.
In addition to its 73 sites, this campground offers walk-in sites along the loop trail around the lake, and state park’s Byers Lake cabins 1, 2 and 3...
Less than 6 miles west of the Hollis Ferry Terminal is this resort with cabins that sleep four and bunkhouses that sleep two. Both have kitchens, while nearby is a bathhouse with showers and laundry facilities.
Each year, reservations for the campground are accepted from the first Monday in January...
Has showers and laundry, and is half a mile west of the George Parks Hwy, on the road into Cantwell.
Haines’ largest motel has the best view of the Chilkat Mountains and Lynn Canal and a huge sundeck to enjoy it on...
In a town with little competition, or panache, the Caribou often gets a bad rap...
Ideal downtown location, and the 14 rooms, though small and a bit worn around the edges, are definitely acceptable and come with a full breakfast.
A stunning cedar house within walking distance of the town center. Breakfast is made with eggs from the chickens clucking around outside and is served in a vaulted-ceiling common room that overlooks the mountains.
One of several USFS cabins in the impressive Thomas Bay area, 20 miles from Petersburg and north of LeConte Bay on Frederick Sound’s east side. Reservations required.
Basically an overflow area, is on Ward Lake’s east shore.
