Alaska B&Bs - How do we compare with others?

A recent survey sponsored by the Professional Association of Innkeepers showed that B&Bs throughout the United States contribute to these statistics:

· Occupancy Rate                    43.7%
· Average Daily Rate                 $150
· Revenue per Available Room    $58


Alaska's cost of living is high - the 2010 US Government report shows Anchorage's rate is 128% and Fairbanks is 137%, by way of example.  Rates at AABBA Inns are aligning with US-wide rates, giving visitors a good value for the money...and a great value in terms of
unique, Alaska experiences!

The AABBA Inns ARE different. They agree to undergo peer review.  They uphold a code of ethics and an investment in continuing education.  These inn keepers maintain the codes and regulations mandated by state and municipality governments and beyond that,  strive for the top rung of professionalism.

For the consumer, professional organization membership is a signal of quality.  And when the organization upholds a code of ethics, promotes ongoing education, and discusses issues facing local businesses, there truly is a value visible to consumers!

Visitors, we encourage you to stay at Bed and Breakfasts that are AABBA inspected and approved. Take a look at the inns in pictures that give you a glimpse of the variety, the beauty of the surroundings, and a sense of the uniqueness experienced in Alaska 'small business' accommodations. Based on what others have said, we trust you will enjoy your stay!
