Why are the hotels so expensive in Anchorage?? I have been searching for something decent around $150.00....is it impossible? Can anyone give me some ideas or at least the best hotel for the price most of the 2-3 star rated hotels are getting awful reviews. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Our arrival in Anchorage is June 28th I understand that is peak summer season. Would like to find something close to airport if possible we don't pick up our car until the next day. Thanks for any info.!!
