    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.
