Where to stay in Ketchikan

For a small city, Ketchikan boasts a surprisingly diverse array of accommodations. A downtown hotel is the best option for those who want to stay within walking distance of the city’s restaurants, bars, stores, and attractions, plus it offers proximity to the water. If you have access to a car, you can save a few dollars and enjoy some of Alaska's famous scenery by staying farther out of town. The area's selection of bed and breakfasts includes a number of quirky establishments full of character. The surrounding Tongass National Forest has a well-equipped campground and RV park.
