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

Had a group of 20 stay here the end of May 2013. Everyone was very satisfied. Not fancy but clean and comfortable and great price. Just what we were looking for. Very friendly helpful owners. Great muffins and coffee to start the morning. Have stayed at the best of hotels but would choose this one over those anytime.

We chose this place for the good price, free airport pickup and was not disappointed. Rooms are clean and comfortable, warm water and very nice family run vibe. I liked the real motel-feeling with the parking lot and all. Its important: not a fancy hotel but it is a great place to stay! Check on the carbon-monoxide monitors, the one... More

This is a basic motel located near the airport and near the Riverboat Discovery. They offer airport transportation, complimentary coffee and juice and pastry. It is truly Alaska. Simple motel room that is clean and comfy. Family owned. Fairbanks tour operators love them. Walking distance to stores(Fred Meyer-Kmart-like) for food, deli etc. Fast food nearby. With a car-close to University... More

The outside of this place the strip club and the places around this area will make you change your mind about staying here. The butts all over the ground are a real welcome to this place. They don't take an American Express or Discover so we dident stay maybe a good thing. I did look in a room very small... More

During my vacation in Alaska I had the pleasure of staying at Golden North Motel. The service was excellent. They had a great staff that treated me with kindness. I am a stickler for a clean environment and they did not let me down. Not only was my room impeccably clean everyday but the actual motel itself was spotless. This... More
