A very busy Princess hotel. When we arrived at our room it appeared that the bed nay not have been changed prior to our arrival. A call to housekeeping and this was soon sorted out. We had a room that overlooked the courtyard bistro. Pleasant outlook. Hotel is a little out of town however that is overcome with the shuttle... More

This is a modern, new lodge right on the banks of a major river. All the rooms and facilities are in one building, a big contrast to the other two Princess Lodges. There is a small amount of hiking available along the river and in a nearby forest. The rooms are spacious and new. The lobby is big and airy.... More

After traveling by Princess Bus from Denali to Fairbanks we arrived to a total chaotic mess. Very Stressful and disorganized. Hotel needs a lot of TLC. Definitely not equipped to handle the amount of people to employees. I felt sorry for the staff. This place compared to other Princess Resorts. Well there is no comparison. Would not stay here again.

Stayed here for the first two nights of our Princess Land/Cruise tour. Our room had two double beds and overlooked the front of the lodge (car park). Room was clean and comfortable – no bar fridge or in room safe. More hotel than lodge but they have tried to give it a modern lodge feel with fires and suitable interior... More

Spent 3 days in August. View overlooking the river is lovely. However, it was very hot in the room, even with a temp of 68 showing on the thermostat. The window opened, which helped to cool us during the daytime; however, open window at night was not an option as the room was directly above the ventilation fans for the... More

Stayed here for the first two nights of our Princess Land/Cruise tour. After more than thirteen hours of traveling appreciated the close proximity to the ariport and the efficient prearranged check-in. We were given room 261 with two double beds located on a second floor in the interior of the hotel with a modest exterior view and accessible by stairs... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Princess landtour. Our room was clean and comfortable. The environment was quiet. What I really found convenient was that, for guests whose departing flight is on Alaska Airlines (or one of their partner airlines), they have a special counter where you can check in early the night before the flight....

I was disappointed that it did not have the "curb appeal" of an Alaskan lodge. Lobby was nice but the room was a disgrace as far as cleanliness, Human hair on bathroom floor, the toilet rim was disgusting, and visible dust on table next to the Not a good start to an expensive once in a lifetime trip..

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. The good, we were able to ask the hotel to call us if the Northern Lights were visible, and we were able to see them on our last night in Fairbanks. Also, the staff was very helpful with suggestions of things to see and how to get there. The less than good,... More
