On our recent adventure trip of 23 days to Alaska in Aug/Sep 2015, we kept Fairbanks as our base and took different trips in all directions from here. We stayed at the lodge multiple times during this trip. The location is awesome, close to the airport, on the banks of Chena river, and reasonably close to a shopping mall. Free... More

The Lodge was a very pleasant experience. The staff was very pleasant and willing to help. The rooms were comfortable and the lobby was nice. They had a very small shop next to the Reception Desk, and that staff was exceptionally friendly and very pleasant to converse with. Probably the biggest selling point for the Lodge is their shuttle service.... More

This hotel was great. The staff was incredible and our room was really nice. The rate was really good and we got free ice cream. They have the "Love Alaska" sign near the river and we took a family picture with it in the back ground. I would definitely stay here again

We arrived after midnight and the free shuttle arrived in a matter of minutes. The drive to the hotel is only about 2-3 minutes and the check in was quick. the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was good as was the quick transport to the airport. We didn't stay long but if we go back to... More

Great service, friendly staff. Never had any issues. There's a restaurant next door with a great deck overlooking the river. The miniature golf on the patio was one of my favorites! I will definitely be going back!

Spent 4 wonderful nights on the river in our own cabin. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast buffet included was outstanding. Loved the atmosphere and the staff was very helpful on referrals to the hot springs and where to shop. Pike's Landing adjacent to the hotel had miniature golf, outdoor pool table and you could even try your skill at making... More

The property was beautiful, but the staff was lacking in care and concern. From check in to check out I am hard pressed to say that anything was met with pleasantries or enthusiasm. First room I was placed in the wifi did not work, and while I was moved it was a major pain. Washing machine was not spinning and... More

DON'T STAY AT PIKE'S if you value the safe guarding of your personal property and an honest staff!!! We stayed at the lodge primarily to be in a position to observe the Northern Lights in Fairbanks and to be close to the university. We had to check out early without breakfast to get on our way to Denali because it... More

We are sorry that you lost your neck pouch. We stand behind our key card security system and our employees. Fairbanks is a small town and many of our guests don't realize that we know each other and have worked together for many years and thus we trust each other. You chose the best option when you reported your loss... More
