We stayed here both before and after a rafting trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. We found the staff to be extremely helpful and very friendly. They happily agreed to store some of our luggage while we were gone. It's in downtown Fairbanks.

We were in Fairbanks for the Solstice Festival and the location could not have been more convenient without being in the festival space. The parking lot was small, but no problem finding a spot coming and going. Easy drive to the airport or from the highway from Denali; we managed to get confused, but called the reservation number and got... More

The staff, location, and price were the best features of this hotel during my stay. All of the staff members that we interacted with were very polite and helpful, the price was very reasonable, and it was only a few blocks away from the visitors center and right across the street from the river. The rooms were very basic, but... More

Excellent choice for Fairbanks. The Bridgewater is part of a collection of hotels that have a free shuttle service around town that stops at most places we wanted to go. They also picked us up at the airport and took us to the train station. The cafe downstairs served a nice selection of breakfast choices. Right around the corner was... More

Stayed here for three nights. It had just opened for the season. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The hotel is well located with pleasant rooms. The hotel offered a good breakfast option..

This is defintely a good value for Fairbanks. Rooms and hotel could use some updating, but the rooms were clean and the service was very friendly. Parking is somewhat limited. Would stay again. I don;t know if they had a breakfast or not, but their website they said during the busy season.

Clean rooms, great staff, and probably the best value for money option in Fairbanks. Laundry facilities are available - big washer/dryer, more than enough for your personal needs. Parking is available right next to the property Breakfast is extra

We stayed for one night after arriving by train from Denali. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel had a shuttle meet the train (we hadn't asked or expected this). The property is well located and is clean and comfortable. The staff are very welcoming; they helped with things to do for our day in Fairbanks and then organized a... More

We stayed here for four nights on a recent trip to Fairbanks. Good location, a great Italian restaurant practically next door, comfortable rooms, tho smallish, and amazing staff. I agree with the comments about the staff making the place. There is nothing they couldn't help with, find, do, including providing a postal package to mail something back to California, stamps...

The staff here are so good they make this hotel special. The location is central and there's free parking. The bed, sheet, pillows, towels and toiletries were fine. Not fabulous, but fine. The room had a microwave and fridge. No coffee machine or iPod dock. The breakfast is a-mazing, it's not included but so worth it. It's a nice base... More
