The beginning of our 13 day Princess Cruise trip. Nice views of the Chena River from out back. Food cost on the high side for breakfast buffet and plate orders.. Bar menu was limited and priced a little high. Did have shuttles for a cost to run to downtown Fairbanks.

Of the three Princess Lodges, this one has the nicest rooms. Quiet rooms and modern. Restaurants and bars are pretty good. Again, about the same as other Princess lodges. Unlike other hotels In the area, it does not have a shuttle that goes to the various attractions. Just a shuttle every half hour to Fairbanks, and you must pay for... More

Our room was average with good views looking at the Chena River. The lobby was large and comfortable. The hotel location was good for our tours Discovery Riverboat and gold dredge 8, and close to the Fairbanks airport. The buffet breakfast and special fair well dinner were very good. The only negative was that our room have (2) double beds... More

While a stopover prior to visiting Denali State Park, the hotel rooms could use a better cleaning. Additionally the food offered at the hotel could be more diverse. We had fish and chips after a flight from Newark to Seattle and then to Fairbanks. Food was too greasy.

We stayed here for 3 nights on the beginning of our Princess land/ cruise tour. While the hotel is very basic, the room was clean and well kept and the bed comfortable. Didn't eat at hotel but outside deck for drinks very pleasant. Good restaurants a taxi ride away. Great service by all personnel at front desk and tour desk.

The hotel is less then ten minutes from the airport but is isolated from local restaurants. While the Alaskan Wilderness theme throughout the hotel is attractive, the hallways are drab. Our room was small. The jacuzzi style bathtub is challenging for a short person to use. The continental breakfast ($12.99) and full breakfast ($16.99) were adequate. Both include coffee and... More

After a day of travel we were pleasantly surprised to have Princess greet us at the airport, take our bags and hand us an envelope with our room keys and excursion tickets for the next day! Princess was super organized this way throughout the land portion of our trip. We thought our room was very nice and clean and we... More

We stayed at this lodge for two nights of a 14 day cruisetour through Princess. This "Lodge" reminded me more of a Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn. It doesn't have a "lodge feel". It is boxy with tons of rooms. Our room was at the end of a very long hallway. I believe the hotel has 4 wings of rooms... More

We stayed 2 nights as part of a Princess land tour. Bathroom was very dirty. After the first night stay the bed was not remade and the bath math was not replaced. Very dark and gloomy room. Long lines in the morning at the restruant for expensive food.

We spent 4 nights in the lodge, my first impression was that it was a little drab as the decor is mostly shades of brown, earthy colours but it grows on you, the room always smelled nice, the service was always good, we had a small issue with the bath & sink being blocked but they had it fixed promptly...
