This hotel does not take in consideration of guest needs, especially when they are handicapped. Management needs to do better planning for facility improvements and not to make it so inconvenience for their guests. Very poor planning.

Management needs to do better planning on repairs and take guest needs in consideration. They do not take in consideration guests needs. No consideration for handicapped guests. Very disappointed in this hotel.

I have spent most of this summer on business in Fairbanks and there couldn't be a better hotel to call "home away from home". The front desk staff (Bella, Chance, Mary, and Michael) continually provided over the top guest service. This by far is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. The housekeeping staff kept every corner of this... More

I used to stay at this hotel during all my visits to Fairbanks for business. They changed management and employees and it was not good service after that. However, I stayed here recently, and am happy to say, they are back to A+ service. Their beds are comfy and I will be changing back to this location for all my... More

The room was more than adequate for my son and me. He enjoyed the free WiFi and I enjoyed the comfortable bed after a 10 day drive to Fairbanks from Virginia. The free, full breakfast was wonderful. Although, we were a little disappointed that the waffle iron was inoperable. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We have been traveling for 20 days and have stayed at some nice motels. This motel is very nice, but it is the most expensive motel we have stayed at, and although it was nice, it was not exceptional.

The property was conveniently located, nice, clean rooms. We stayed two nights, which was not our initial plan, as a result we had two different rooms. The first room we stayed in was much larger than the second, with a nicer bathroom. I'm not sure why, I suspect the first room may have been ADA modified. The first morning we... More
