The customer service as the Fairbanks Inn is warm, friendly, and professional. The rooms are very large and can comfortably sleep 4 people. My only problem was that I booked through Priceline and when the receptionist asked for my credit card I thought it was for "incidentals" but actually she wasn't aware I'd already paid and intended to charge my...

We usually stay at the Comfort Inn and Suites. Have been for years but this week they didn't offer the less expensive ski package to Burke because of school vacation. So we booked here with ski and stay. The first room we had smelled like stale smoke badly. We were going to just stay in it cuz not really one... More

Great weekend snow shoeing with my pup and skiing at Jay Peak. One of the great parts about staying here with your dog is the huge field/park right outside the door. Makes for a very easy late night bathroom walk when it's cold (and it was!) Loved the inn, very clean, great price and the staff was friendly and helpful.... More

Thank you so much for choosing the Fairbanks Inn. I am so happy your pup enjoying staying here as well. The outdoor courtyard is great for our four legged friends. In the summer season it is great to look out the windows and see them playing Frisbee. While up visiting, I would definitely make it a point to go visit... More

We only live about an hour and half away from here, so we don't always stay when we visit St.J, but when we do we usually stay here. The most recent trip we took them up on their ski packages since the snow has been so deep and skied at the hidden gem known as Burke Mtn. When you consider... More

Thank you for your review of the Fairbanks Inn. We believe our ski packages are a great value. Prices start at $139 for Cannon Mountain and Burke and Jay Peak at only $159. All packages include overnight accommodations and 2 lift tickets per night. Our over sized rooms with the extra vanities are a hit with both couples and vacationing... More

Three of my college buddies went back to his home town for a weekend of skiing. This inn offers a ski vacation package that even we could afford. We skied one day at Jay Peak and one day at Burke Mountain. I loved both, but Burke was way closer. There were tons of snowmobilers there and families skiing. The rooms... More

We loved the inn,at any price, but at these rates, what a value! The cross country skiing on "Kingdom Trails" up at Burke Mountain was just top notch!

It has been several years since we visited St. johnsbury for snowmobiling. This year mother nature cooperated and we were eager to return. Several other couples join us each winter for snowmobiling vacations. We have stayed at both the Comfort Inn and Fairbanks Inn in the past. Both have treated us well but we prefer the lower rates at the... More

Our family had a very pleasant stay at the Fairbanks this past week. We had a great rate, enjoyed skiing nearby, and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. Area was quiet, room was clean. Looking forward to our next relaxing ski vacation at the Fairbanks!
