We found the staff could use a hotel management course , they all know how to say sorry. The rooms had a musty, smoky smell and their answer was to bring us a can of Frebreeze. No food served between 2pm and 5 and the upstairs open patio is not open until the bar at 4. When we got back... More

Great location, within an easy walk to Safeway. Nice size kitchen with appropriate supplies. We asked for extra coffee & that was quickly supplied. No central A/C ( stuffy & humid ) but bedroom A/C made for comfortable sleeping. Extra fans helped for the rest of suite. Staff helpful re: transportation to local restaurants, etc. We were there with a... More

The suites are so comfortable and well designed that we immediately felt at home. The staff could not have been nicer and the lounge is superb. Housekeeping services are excellent. The Safeway Supermarket is a short 5 minute walk from the property or use their courtesy shuttle. We are definitely returning next year.

We had a very large, very comfortable suite, with full kitchen and two queen beds. Clean and quiet. Free computer/internet access in lobby. Free coffee & tea available 24 hours. Friendly, helpful staff. A short drive to UAFairbanks and Museum of the North, downtown, and Pioneer Park. Overall, a fine experience.

As part of our Alaska tour we were NOT supposed to be staying here. Our "booked" hotel was not available so we were sent here. O.M.G. When we walked in all we could say is WOW! Large rooms, full kitchen, two TVs, beautiful sitting and bath areas. I would definitely recommend staying here while in Fairbanks!!

We stayed here on the last night of our vacation. The front desk staff, restaurant servers, and our shuttle driver were all outstanding. This is a gem of a hotel in Fairbanks. Thank you for making outer final day in Alaska a real pleasure. We stayed July 29-30, 2014.

We stayed at three hotels/inns in Fairbanks. This was the best in every way - big apartment with full amenities, close to Fred Meyers/Safeway, close to Airport, close to local buses (if you dont have car), and of course, value for money. We didnt in the restaurant as we were cooking our meals in the apartment. Yes, the Inn is... More
