Is it possible to find rooms on the fly in July?

Jump to last reply

We are trying to plan a trip to Alaska in July 2014. Flying into Anchorage, renting a car and visiting Kanai, Homer, Seward and Denali. We want to do 3 weeks but have found the costs adding up quickly. I was planning on coming up with an itinary and booking rooms in each town but that restricts us to that time frame with the reserved rooms. We would love to have the flexiblity of not booking rooms ahead of time. Is it possible to find rooms when we arrive in town that are reasonably priced and without much difficulty? We don't want to be driving around the area trying to find a room that isn't too expensive.
I want to do a wildlife viewing cruise and some sea kayaking and must see Denali. I really wanted to ride the train to and from Denali but the cost and lack of a car once we get there have me scratching that idea. Any money saving tips are greatly appreciated.
