Centrally located with a superb outlook over the river. Helpful staff. Very good buffet breakfast. Stayed in a few hotels on this trip to Alaska and the Yukon and this was the best on the tour. We were always told that accomodation would be basic but it was always better than most UK hotels.

We had a a nice spacious, clean room with very nice toiletries - a bonus. There is a guest laundry for which you can purchase tokens at the desk - much better than fumbling around trying to find enough quarters for the machine! There's even a tv in the laundry! Staff were friendly and helpful and we liked the way... More

Great rooms. Nice staff. Everything was convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel as great value. Close to many of the downtown restaurants. Parking is a little tight, but they work with local businesses to accommodate everyone.

Outstanding staff and a convenient location ensured that this hotel stood out on our tour of Alaska. The room was spotless and well equiped. The cooling system effective and blackout blinds aided our sleep. The location in downtown Fairbanks gave easy access to restaurants and the river. The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A good supply of bathroom toiletries was topped up daily. Staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. No fridge in room (very warm during our visit) but small fridge available on request, subject to availability.... More
