This is the second time staying at this location. The staff is excellent and the hotel is clean. Whenever I stay in Fairbanks, I stay here. Located central to almost everything you'll need in there. Highly recommend staying here if you are ever in Fairbanks.

I stayed here for a week with work and was very satisfied. I had just been in the Bethel, AK for the previous 8 days and comfort is far from the norm there. Fairbanks feels like NYC compared to Bethel. Regardless, this hotel was clean, well-appointed, friendly staff, laundry and fridge/microwave in room. Decent cable selection, too. If I came... More

We bring our kids to town for their birthdays and love staying here. The rooms are always clean and wonderful. They even made sure to put us on the other side so we would get no construction noise without us asking. All staff are friendly and so nice check in has always been pleasant. The pool area is always clean... More

A little pricey compared to other places in Fairbanks Alaska However, Andrew the Manager was very helpful and went out of his way to make us feel at home. They let me check in way before 3:00 and let my kids play in the pool after check out. The entire hotel was very clean and well kept. Breakfast was excellent... More

A wonderful hotel. Clean, modern, all amenities. The breakfast was great. Climate control perfect. The breakfast coordinator (Vanna?) was fantastic...five star service, plus she went out of her way to respond to our every need. The night manager, William, was a wealth of information and highly efficient. This truly is a great hotel...new, spotlessly clean and comfortable.

I flew in to Alaska around 11pm Saturday night, took a short taxi ride to this hotel and thankfully the guy at the front desk (on June 14th) was kind enough to automatically give us a 2pm check out the next day which was so nice of him.

Let's face it, when we stay in chain hotels we know what the basics will be. What differentiates the hotels at that point is how well their staff treat us and their attention to all the little things that can make or break our opinion of the facility. I'm happy to say that this place exceeded all my expectations on... More

This is a standard issue Holiday Inn Express built in a giant shopping mall (yes, such things now exist in Fairbanks!). It doesn't feel very "Alaskan" (trees are scarce, chain stores are numerous), but it's darn convenient for the independent traveler who can easily stock up on supplies "next door" before heading out to more remote parts of the state....
