We got to Fairbanks and started calling around, there were no hotels available. One of the ones we called then directed us here. I am sure there were rooms available because the hotel appeared a little divey and was not in the center of town. Just to be sure I asked to see a room, which the person at the... More

I drive a pilot car and take my small dog. The Ranch motel was the only motel in Fairbanks I was aware of that took dogs so I ended up staying there a few times. I was always treated rudely. The first time I stayed I was unable to sleep because there was a party and fighting in several of... More

This summer, we initially booked 7 Gables through Priceline.com for 2 nights. Surprisingly, when we arrived 7 Gables, we were told NO room for us! (I am still fighting to get my money back from Priceline.com!) The whole town was booked out even almost all B&Bs! After spending almost 4 hrs to call every single hotel and B&B ( W/... More

Hotels and motels in Fairbanks are expensive. We tried one (Bridgewater Hotel) in Downtown but decided to check here because I'd read about it on Tripadvisor. Sizable room and clean. Fan no airco (not many hotels have ' em here). Breakfast place next door. Fairbanks is not very big and the location of this place, while a bit out of... More

When you first drive up to the Ranch Motel, you will probably worry what you've gotten yourself into. The exterior looks like it hasn't been updated in at least 30 years! HOWEVER The interior of the two rooms we rented were spotless, comfortable, and even featured wireless internet. Granted, we felt like we'd traveled back a few decades, but everything... More

The best bargain in Fairbanks! While the motel is unassuming from the outside and only has around 30 rooms, it is clean (the smoking rooms smell better than non-smoking rooms I have been in elsewhere!) and well run and the manager is informative and friendly. She will even wake customers (at their request) at 2 a.m. to see the northern... More

I found the Ranch Motel to be very clean, quiet and comfortable. The rates are very reasonable as well. I have a small dog and it is difficult at times to find a Motel that will accomdate her. There is a large grassy area for walking your dogs. The staff is very friendly and quite helpfull.

This was the most horrible place I have ever seen. We were attending a function in Fairbanks and checked the website for a nice motel. The pictures of the rooms at the Ranch Motel were very nice with Victorian furniture, we couldn't find a picture of the outside of the motel. When we arrrived at the motel we found the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There's lots of hotels in Fairbanks, Alaska. The trick is to find a place with management that believes strongly in continual, careful maintenance and is picky about room cleanliness. The Ranch Motel is that! All rooms ground floor, each with its own outside door - park right in front of your unit. Phones in rooms, free local calls, cable TV, friendly knowledgable staff. Discounts for cash, even if reserved on card. ... more   less
