We stayed here during a recent 4 night trip to Fairbanks to see the Northern Lights. The hotel is excellent. The room was very nice, the bed was absolutely the best bed we have ever slept on in any hotel - and that includes some 5 star hotels! The breakfast was really good, including omelets and waffles. The only problem... More

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon. The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast served every morning consisted of cereal, omelettes, or waffles. Good food. Good location. We often walked across the street to Fred Meyer or CJ's or Taco Bell. Good value for the money- I highly recommend it.

Very friendly staff, extremely helpful and excellent service. This impressed us within minutes of the check in. Free taxi service between airport and tour company etc. Also provided a wakeup call for the northern lights, which put on a spectacular display right outside the hotel. The rooms were large, spacious, very well appointed with large comfortable beds and good linen.... More

I've stayed here many times and have had all pretty good experiences. It's very clean, breakfast is good. Only had one small issue with noise. It's close to the airport, and some shopping. A taxi cab is very cheap to get around. Nice to have a sandwich shop/coffee stand next door as well.

This hotel is in a very convenient location, not too far from the airport and close to the supermarket. The staffs are very nice. They go all the way to help the tourists. Hotel room is clean, nice, and quiet. Breakfast is very delicious. The transportation to and from the airport is free.

Sounds like you had a great time sightseeing while you where here. I like your suggestion about extending our breakfast hours with limited items; in the future I think we will definitely use it. We appreciate you staying with us and giving us a extensive review. It is always good to know specifics. More

I found this hotel fantastic. Breakfast buffet, coffee in room, laundry facilities(small charge), business centre, wifi, small health gym...all free for guests to use. The staff were outstanding, they couldn't do enough to help you. They were better than the visitor's centre. They even woke you up if the Aurura presented itself. We didn't have a car and did find...
