Like the other Princess Lodges, I found these rooms larger and very clean. The back deck of this hotel was very nice as well, as was the restaurant (we had lunch here - it was good). Despite it's location near the airport, there was no traffic noise which was nice. However, there wasn't really anything to do that was near... More

I've been to Fairbanks many many times and stayed in a number of hotels there. This hotel stay was by far the most comfortable I've had in Fairbanks yet. The location is fantastic, being located close to the airport and the river. The staff were all friendly and pleasant, which was a difficult task. I witnessed the staff being verbally... More

Arrived in Fairbanks late evening (after 9 pm) to bright sunlight. After a long day of travel, we needed some comfort and relaxation. The rooms were extremely well furnished with great linens. And, since there is lots and lots of daylight in Alaska we hoped for black-out curtains and they delivered.

Nice, clean, great location and good food. Could use handle grips in the bathroom. This would really help those of us getting older. Curtain did not close all the way and with light 20 hours a day was a little tough sleeping. All in all a good hotel on the river.

The Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge sits on very attractive property overlooking the Chena River. One of the hotel's restaurants has a large patio that is situated so you can dine and enjoy the scenery. The hotel is only about 5 minutes from the airport and is a distance to downtown Fairbanks. The staff at the hotel is welcoming and well... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a Princess land tour. This is our second Princess land tour and have now stayed at all five Princess Alaska lodges. I rank the Fairbanks lodge as number 5 out of 5. First, it's not really a lodge - has 5 floors and covered with siding. Second, there are other motels... More

This is a nice, clean lodge. We came in late to Fairbanks after a delayed flight so I really appreciated Princess being super organized. Check in for the hotel was at the airport and they took our luggage. We had our keys before we even got on the bus! The next day we got breakfast in the gift shop. What... More

We did the land package of a Princess Cruise, and this was the first hotel we stayed in on our way to the ship. It was a bit smokey due to all the forest fires that were going on, and there was always a haze in the air, and it smelled like a big campfire 24 hours a day. The... More

Rooms were very basic with no extra amenities. Coffee service was the only good point. Hospitality Lounge offered no services...not even a bottle of water or a cup of coffee. Grounds needed upkeep with weeds growing in obvious locations. This is a basic hotel, not a lodge. Town had very little to offer overall. If in the area, definitely skip... More

We stayed here as part of a cruise tour. We had an issue with the first room we were given and the staff quickly resolved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were lovely. Lots of help available for tours. We had salmon chowder at the restaurant that was out of this world!
