Perfectly adequate room overlooking a river. Not much to see or do near the hotel, but it's fine if you need a place to stay in Fairbanks. The best of fairbanks, in order: northern lights - the hotel will wake you up to see them if requested; Museum of the North and wilderness village.

Hubby and I stayed here at the beginning of a land-sea tour with Princess. We got there a day early (had air delays the first time we cruised) to make sure we had plenty of time. We were able to use the general coach transfer (rather than having to purchase a separate transfer), but they did not have our introductory... More

We stayed here as part of a Princess land tour and cruise.The lodge is just okay - nothing special. The hotel would use an updating. The staff is friendly and efficient. The lodge is located near the airport. Prior to staying here, we spent two nights at the Hampton Inn. It's a much nicer property.

We stayed at this hotel as part of our land and sea cruise. We did four nights in Fairbanks before the week long cruise. We loved this property. It was light out almost the full 24 hours a day so we stayed up late and explored. It isn't a "fancy" place but clean and comfortable. The view of the river... More

We stayed there in May after our cruise. The hotel was nice. My only complaint was that being a lodge I assumed (you know what that means), it would have a hot tub like the Denali Princess. No hot tub and no pool. The casual restaurant was really very good... I had the best fish and chips I ever had...

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
