Excellent in all respects. Desk staff very welcoming and informative. Room service staff friendly and very helpful. Even hints on shopping and local attractions. Excellent presentation of room and great breakfast with wide range of food. Opposite Fred Meyer store handy for any travel purchases. Overall one of the best hotels we've stayed in during extensive travels throughout the USA.

We had a wonderful time during our recent time in Fairbanks staying at your motel. The rooms were very neat, the staff was just wonderful, and they did everything to make our stay in Fairbanks a great time. Tracy was so helpful over the phone handling our reservations, and guided around the road construction going on in front of the... More

Stayed at this hotel while we were in Fairbanks Alaska and it was the simply the best stay ever. The staff went over and beyond to meet our needs and to accommodate us. Clean and quiet hotel with an awesome buffet breakfast. Excellent stay!!!!

Loved having French Vanilla Coffee as a choice in my room. Thankfully the air conditioning unit was quiet as I prefer to open a window instead but it was too noisy. The location is close to the airport, River Discovery Cruise & the University of Alaska.

We arrive at 2 am and checked in immediately to a clean, comfortable room. Breakfast was free and quite good. The woman, Jackie, who stocks the breakfast bar was very pleasant and informative. What made the experience "above and beyond" was the manager Melissa. When we asked about transportation to the Princess Lodge she put us into her car and... More

This is a very nice and clean motel very close to the airport and a shopping center. Morning continental breakfast was very good. The motel is a very good value and nice place to stay. The desk clerks were friendly and helpful.

The staff was very friendly and very helpful with all questions and need for directions to local businesses. I would recommend this hotel to anyone spending a few days in the Fairbanks Alaska area near the airport. I spend many nights at Best Western for my business and this is one of the very best.

This hotel is convenient to the airport, shopping, and restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful. I liked being able to say how much or little housekeeping service I wanted. The breakfast is hot and tasty, with good coffee. The only thing I don't like is that the air conditioning is a little noisy, but I got used to it.... More

Stayed here for a night prior to joining a Princess land tour/cruise. Awesome price (way less expensive than Princess hotel). I highly recommend this Best Western! Beds were very comfy. 2 couples in one room and there was plenty of room. Essentially we paid about $51 per person for the stay. We arrived late in evening from airport. Check in... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, after overhearing a disgruntled phone call with a nearby establishment, approached our group with multiple alternatives to help us out. Nice, clean, comfortable place to stay.
