    Hey guys,

    I am going to Cold Bay in late October and will have a layover in Anchorage the night before flying to Cold Bay. Just wondering if anyone can tell me a good place to stay in Anchorage? Doesn't have to be fancy just clean and resonably priced. Also wondering about a good place to go for supper. Again nothing fancy just good quality food and good beer!

    Thanks

    Woody

    Down town you have Glacier Brew house or Humpy's for beer and food. In mid town you have Moose's Tooth pizza for brews.

    In mid town any of the hilton properties are good. In the off season look for online deals.

    Woodie - check out the Motel 6 we just stayed there last Tuesday when we arrived in Anchorage. They had the best price of all the brand name motel/hotels.

    Thanks for the input. Looks like Moose's Tooth is going to be on the list and I'll have to look in to the Motel 6. 7 weeks to go and I'll be on may way to COld Bay. It's gonna take a lot to get there but I am sure it'll be worth all the effort:tu:tu

    Thanks Quakerduck. I booked my flights using points so am hoping this doesn't affect anything.

    Pen Air news - the reality is that Pen Air is stopping their air taxi/charter arm of their business. This is under a part 135 permit stuff - plane for hire.

    Pen Air will still be providing scheduled flights to regional hub air ports like King Salmon and Cold Bay. They will stop providing on demand part 135 charter flights from these regional hubs to outlying villages.
