Easy access and quiet neighborhood. Kept clean and prices are a lot lower than other places in Fairbanks. Family run business and they know their frequent out of town guests by name. Free wifi and quiet area. Parking is convenient. Nice place to relax and enjoy a couple of nights stay.

I had excellent service when I stayed at the Golden North Motel. My room was clean and remained that way throughout my stay, thanks to the lovely cleaning staff. The front office was also kept clean and was very welcoming. The owners, managers, and staff were very friendly and always went above and beyond for me. They always had staff... More

I manager a large hotel in Alaska. I only stopped here as it was late and no one had room. I expected a dirty motel. I crawled into bed immediatly. When I woke, I marveled at the quality of the sheets and how clean they were. I noticed that the vanity in the bathroom had been upgraded. I was running... More

We only had one night in Fairbanks and arrived later in the evening. The hotel charged $95 for the night which was overpriced, given the noisy location and very small rooms. The room was clean but very small. The Motel was OK for a quick overnight stay that we had planned, but way over priced for what you received. We... More

The place is clean and the people who run it could not be nicer. It is an older motel whose furnishings have seen better days. The room is very tiny, but the bathroom has a huge vanity to hold all your grooming and hair prep things. There is a micro wave and fridge in the room, and we were given... More

This is an old old motel that shows its wear. But it was clean and I felt safe there. Rooms opposite the highway will be quieter. Family run, the office staff was helpful. The free donuts and packaged pastries and coffee were inadequate for a decent breakfast for me. Free shuttle to/from airport saves money. A good place for outdoorsy... More

This place is nice I like the rooms with the separate living room when we stay with the kids. The rooms are clean and I love the family that runs it. The Bear family always is nice and helpful. You will pay twice what you pay here for other motels.

Well a dirty motel sums it! People are nice but the carpet was so nasty I couldn't let my kid crawl around. I asked the manager to clean the floor because of the nasty stains that were next to the bed- hotel is next to a strip club. Bottle openers on the wall in every room and Moth balls in... More

We were given a small, tired, and shabby room with a dirty sidewalk and dusty parking lot. It was hot that day - the manager gave us a fan and told us if we just kept our door shut, we would be fine. ???? There was no place to plug the fan in without an extension cord - and crawling... More
