TRAVEL AND LOGISTICS:
Moscow, Idaho is a very pleasant community of 25,000 and is located in a lovely piece of Creation. (For general Moscow visitor information, see www.moscowchamber.com.)
But it is also a small, somewhat isolated town…just getting here will be a bit of a challenge for you. We are very mindful of the sacrifices you are making to come here. We will do our very best to ensure your sacrifices are rewarded.
Airports: We have 3 airports that are good possibilities:
1) Moscow/Pullman Airport (PUW). About 6 miles from the school. This is a small commercial airport served by Alaska/Horizon through the Seattle hub. It is very convenient, but not always the cheapest; definitely worth checking because it’s so close.
2) Lewiston, Idaho (LWS). About 35 miles from the school. This is a small commercial airport served by Delta through the Salt Lake City hub.
3) Spokane, WA. (GEG). About 87 miles from the school, but there is never any traffic so it takes only about 90 minutes. This is a medium-sized airport, but the biggest in the whole Inland Northwest. Airlines include: Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, Southwest, United. Often this airport is the cheapest, because of the competition and volume.
Hotels: We have 3 good hotels within walking distance of the school and more that are within a few miles.
- The Best Western University Inn (less than half a mile from the school) – Best Western does provide complimentary shuttles to the Moscow-Pullman airport.
- Fairfield Inn & Suites (less than half a mile from the school)
- Motel 6 (literally across the street from the school)
- La Quinta (about 1 mile away from the school)
- Within 8 miles of the school, there are another dozen hotel options.
