Lodging Anchorage 1st and 2nd Juni '08

Hi there,

Can anyone recommend a cheap/good place to stay for a few days in Anchorage? I'll fly in on june 1st, my bike a few days earlier.
Just need a few days to get the bike from the crate, sleep off the jetlag and enjoy Anchorage.

tnx.

If you have a tent, you can camp free at the Harley Davidson dealer in Anchorage - no matter what kind of bike you have.
Greetings

Try the hostels, they were pretty cheap. Can't remember the name of the one we stayed in but just google it and you'll find a few.

Try a University

The University of Alaska may allow you to stay in one of their dorm rooms for a low cost and Spartan accommodations. The only factor is this may not be allowed during the active semesters.

It is and option and here are some contact information.

Maybe they would embrace a over-lander and you could share travel experiences with them.

Another option is join CouchSurfing . Once you are verified you can stay with people with in the network. I think there are other motorcyclist among them.

Please PM me with your email. I am going to look at other forums for available contacts which I can forward back to you.

All the best
