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

Rented two rooms & after reading previous reviews I requested the top floor, away from the elevator, & near each other. I got everything I asked for, which was very nice. Rooms were large enough for 2-3 adults to be comfortable, very quiet, secure building after hours (can only get in with keycard), and well maintained. Staff was friendly &... More

This was our first stay out first time in Alaska. We stayed for two nights which was too long. I was really disappointed if this was what Alaska had to offer. Pricey for the quality. First impression looked like an old persons home and it smelled old too. They offered a lot of complimentary items which was nice, but Breakfast... More

This is an old hotel, architecturally, but impeccably maintained and updated. The staff was friendly. Everything worked. No hassle with free parking next to the hotel (put this slip on your dash). The room was quiet and comfortable despite the outdoor public concert going on nearby. Most of the Alaska hotels cost twice as much, since they are only open... More

Excellent place to stay. Right on the banks of Chena River in downtown Fairbanks. Very clean throughout and mattress was wonderful, Staff was very friendly in helping finding locations in and around Fairbanks. Food was good in the buffet and the price was right.

We booked this for our first night in AK, as we arrived at midnight and needed an easy place to bed down. The hotel was clean, service was good, beds were serviceable and yes, the shades kept the room mostly dark. There seemed to be enough parking, which was nice. We opted to go to the coffee house down the... More
