We were surprised when we arrived that the motel wasn't nicer given the high price. The rooms were in desperate need of updating. The worst part of our stay was a buzzing noise in our room that made it difficult for us to sleep. We didn't notice it when we had the t.v on before going to bed otherwise we... More

There's absolutely nothing remarkable about Fairbanks but it's spotlessly clean and adequate for a short stay. We selected Fairbanks over other places in/near St Johnsbury because of the outdoor space. People we were visiting with stayed in the Comfort Inn Suites which they said was a little better but lacked outdoor space. The pool area at Fairbanks and surrounding gardens... More

One room, had a very strong smoke scent and one the air did not work in. The staff was very pleasant to deal with... More

Had a great girls night in the honeymoon suite. Huge room and space with plenty of room for the 4 of us. We also had a private balcony to hang out on. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff friendly. I would definitely stay again! Highly recommended to all!!!!

The Fairbanks Inn is not fancy or even particularly new or modern. The rooms are a bit run down and out of date. But it's very clean (doesn't feel dingy at all) and comfortable, the location is wonderful, and the staff was friendly, helpful and responsive. Lovely outdoor space, plenty of space, a refrigerator and microwave. More than what I'd... More

Room was amazing! We stayed in the honeymoon suite for girls night out, plenty of room! The furniture was very clean and comfortable. Balcony with tables and chairs made allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the warm April day. Will definitely look into staying here again in the future!

As a traveling musician, I stay in hotels/motels all the time. It was a pleasant surprise to be put up in such a charming Inn. The rooms had character and the views were great! Right from the moment we walked through the door we were met with a professional and courteous staff. You can tell that they take pride in... More

Check in/ check out was easy. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful. Rooms were ok, large with a couch, extra sink, refrigerator and microwave. Balcony looking out to a small river. AC wasn't cold enough, lacking in towels and tissues, shower is for short people, but pressure and warmth was good.

I loved hearing that you came up to go hiking, what a great adventure to do in the White Mountains. Maybe you will be able to come back this winter for a Ski & Stay package we offer to Cannon Mountain. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your stay and we very much look forward...
