Have got most things planned and booked for our June 1st - 15th trip, and am now taking care of our Anchorage accommodation as the final step. Have started looking at prices, and yikes is all I can say!! We fly in 1 am on a Sat night, (what is with those crazy flight times anyway!) and will then stay Sunday and Sunday night in Anchorage for recovery, before heading off to Homer.
I am looking at Motel 6 at $144 a night, I realise it's nothing flash, but I think it will suffice. Was wondering if we could survive the Sunday without our rental car if we were based at the Motel 6? Really just want to see the Cultural Heritage Centre and some of the town if we can stay awake long enough.
Also, the best rate for a rental I can find is from Alamo at the airport, despite what everyone says about airport taxes. $694 for a 12 day rental, does that sound in the ballpark? I figured we could take the free Motel 6 shuttle back to the airport to pick up the car on the Monday.
