    Great place to stay and reasonable all year compared to like places. We always stay here with our little dog. They have 1st floor animal rooms which make it easy to take him out at all times. Breakfast in the morning is a treat too.

    We do have one special rate called the "Alaska Resident Rate" that requires an Alaskan ID, but our other special do not require that. We have many rates available directly on our website, check it out and see for yourself.

    Just let us know that you are travelling with a pet, that way we can be sure to reserve a designated pet room for you. Pet fees are $10 per pet, per day.
