Our stay at Pike's was short but sweet. The hotel has all the charm and appeal of a boutique but with many of the amenities you would expect from a large, national chain. The staff was incredibly helpful, making sure that we were comfortable and taken care of for the duration of our trip. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Fairbanks.

This is my second stay here and it wasn't as good as the first. The service has gone down. I am not sure if it is a cultural or language issue but most of the service staff seem to be young Russian men. Asked twice for assistance with bags and no help arrived. As I was checking out I asked... More

Recently visited Fairbanks and had dinner at Pike's...great find and relaxing atmosphere. Our party ordered various items on the menu and we were quite satisfied with our dinner choices. Glad we walked over and took the time set here, great setting as well!

We stayed in Pike's Lodge while on cruise tour through Celebrity Cruise line. The lodge is well kept and the staff does a great job considering the amount of people that show up suddenly on tour buses, they do a fabulous job meeting everyone's needs. We arrived around 11:30 pm and all arrangements were set up prior to our arrival,... More

Large hotel. Ask for room facing river,not parking lot. Not much of a resort...an outdoor pool table and a couple of putting holes. A fitness room. I didn't see anything else! Room large. Best aspect is free shuttle service to airport and train station, and $5.00 charge to be shuttled anywhere else- to museum, to downtown etc. Friendly, nice service.

I stay at Pike's every time I travel to Fairbanks, this place is comfortable and has the friendliest staff members. The food is great and reasonably priced compared to other dining establishments in town. I love that it is conveniently located near the airport and local stores are a 5 minute drive or shuttle away. They also offer free ice... More

Convenience to the airport is the primary attraction to Pikes along with its proximity to the Cheena River. Apart from that the rooms were ok but the heating/cooling system had definite problems. I was definitely expecting a higher quality property for the price paid!

Hello- It is difficult to address issues specifically in your review since there is nothing specific. It is difficult to heat/cool a hotel from -50F winter to 90F summer but we do our best to meet each guest's needs. We are sorry that you apparently didn't walk through the gardens, enjoy the decks, play free Bocce Ball or practice your... More

While this lodge was very nice, I was totally turned off by the hotel desk staff. I had to laugh that the sign out front boasted that it was "the friendliest hotel in Alaska" and I found that to be far from the truth. Our room was clean and fairly comfortable, however we had paid for a "balcony view of... More

Pike's Waterfront lodge has one big advantage over the other hotels in Fairbanks: it's location. It is sitting right by the Chena river. We started our Alaskan trip from Pike's Waterfront and it was the perfect introduction to Alaska. The decor is "oldish", like grandma's cabin by the lake. The rooms are clean, comfortable, the room air-conditioning units are a... More

A recent visit to Fairbanks was highlighted by our stay at Pike's Waterfront Lodge. Without exception, every single employee was accommodating, helpful, and gracious. Our cabin on the banks of the Chena River was mesmerizing. Any future visit to Fairbanks will definitely include this delightful spot.
