I was surprised at how thorough the amenities are at this comfortable lodge across from the airport. This hotel is a regular stop for tour groups so it's usually packed during the tourist season. It certainly isn't five star or anything, but good and comprehensive service goes a long way in this far-off town. Love the rustic decorating, and there's... More

Overnight stay in Pike's Waterfront Lodge in which we arrived quite late. The staff were quick to check us in and show us to our room which was quite lovely. Small however very clean and well equipped with a fridge and microwave. There is a guest laundry on the property and breakfast was included as well as free wifi. The... More

Pike Waterfront Lodge is in need of renovations and updating as it is looking and smelling very tired. Jay (note to the owner), it is time to change the carpets, touch up the walls and give the bathrooms much needed TLC. You have done well to bring on partners for the restaurant and we welcomed back Pike as a great... More

Hello- You will be happy to know that we are redoing the bathrooms this winter. We just finished four test bathrooms to see what colors/surfaces we like the best. We are sorry that you thought that we need renovation as we spend every winter repainting and re carpeting rooms and replacing soft good such as the curtains last year. We... More

We live in Fairbanks so have never stayed at Pike's Waterfront Lodge. We took advantage of the New Year's Special and really enjoyed our stay. Everything was 1st rate. We sure hope the special is offered again next year and we recommend Pike's Lodge to our out of town friends.

Nice place to spend the night. I would have given it a "excellent", but I was a little disappointed having one of the cabins in the back with NO view. Otherwise, the room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant is classy with an awesome view of the Chena river. It is very relaxing to simply sit with a drink while... More

The room was dated but comfortable and overlooking the river. There are pleasant common areas for mingling with friends and an ice cream stand! The checkin staff was friendly and efficient and very helpful as I had a small health problem. We left a call to see the Northern Lights if they appeared and, happy to say, we got a... More

I normally stay with friends when I am in Fairbanks. Since it was the holidays, I had to get a hotel room as my friends were with their family. I got a king sized bed, for myself) for $99 (Alaska rate)! Great price! The room was clean and had good wifi. If the receptionist was friendlier, I would have given... More

I have stayed there a few times. The rooms and beds are comfortable. I liked the big breakfast it is generous and you can also get ice cream and a cookie with your stay. They have a little shop where you can buy gifts. There is tea and coffee available in the lobby.

Room was clean and quiet but wi-fi didn't work in my room, I had to go to the lobby. Non-Alaska residents have to pay a $10 surcharge per night. Check in staff was very friendly but others on staff that I met had a bit of an aloof attitude. I also don't like a 'hot breakfast' that doesn't include eggs... More

Hello- We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay more. I am unclear as to why your internet did not work in your room; it should work in every room. We try to clearly advertise that in the winter, we offer a complimentary continental breakfast that includes hard boiled eggs and make your own waffles. We offer Alaska... More
