First stop on our Land/Sea Princess Vacation. Do the Land portion FIRST ! Lots of checking in/out - on/off/on to motor coaches. The sea cruise portion is a welcome and restful reward. We arrived a whole day early by air in Fairbanks at about 9:30 pm beginning of the SECOND week in Sept. Very smooth transfer to the Lodge. The... More

The hotel is situated by the river and has lovely walking grounds.; It is close to the University. If you take a flight or need to rent a car, those amenities are nearby as well. The architecture is nicely Alaskan, and the staff know the area well. We took a trip to North Pole, AK from the Fairbanks Princess- close... More

After reading reviews I didn't have high expectations for this hotel. Booking our land & cruise tour thru Princess meant we didn't have a choice where we would stay. Our room was quite dated with a view of the roof over the hotel entrance and parking lot. Not very impressive. Our opinion of the hotel was saved by a few... More

This was the 3rd of our Princess Lodges on our land portion of our cruise tour. The hotel was very nice, bright and cheerful. The rooms were nicely appointed, comfortable beds. Although i'm not understanding why they continue to use those nasty bed spreads in their rooms instead of duvets that most hotels are going to now...but anyway , back... More

Was disappointed at the start of our trip, especially after loving the hotel we stayed in the night before in Fairbanks. The rooms need updating and the a/c really didn't work. The system seems to need an upgrade. We were told that it would cool down at night, but it didn't help at the time we needed it. Opening the... More

We recently stayed at the Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge. The room was clean and bright with a lovely view of the river. There are two restaurants in the lodge, both we were not impressed with. The grounds are lovely with nice walking paths that take you through a woodsy area and also along the riverside. We are smokers and felt... More

My wife and I recently returned from a cruise, land package with Princess. WE stayed here on Sept. 18-20 and we totally disagree from some of the comments made on this hotel. I have worked for a major hotel chain and this hotel was excellent in every regard. It has a beautiful lobby, good service people at front desk, tour... More

Another Princess property. Good location to walk downtown, nice, comfortable room, good buffet breakfast. This hotel, like the other Princess properties are a bit dated. The staff was courteous and helpful, and very organized with our luggage for the rest of our trip.

Began our two night stay on 9/9/2014 as part of our 8-day land tour prior to cruising. The lodge accommodations are tired and in need of a facelift. Bathrooms need to be totally remodeled. Food is expensive and not a good value. We are loyal to Hampton Inns and this lodge is a step below.
