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

Close to the airport with shuttle, Pikes landing restaurant and bar, Rooms are clean w/nice decor, Friendly staff, Cons, no eggs or bacon in their "hot breakfast", overall decor of hotel is too Alaskan. ..dark interior, Rooms are a little bit smaller than others I've been to....

Hi thanks for your kind comments regarding Pike's. In the winter, we have a cold continental breakfast that includes make your own waffles, hard boiled eggs and an oatmeal bar as well as pastries that we bake, cold cereal and the usual suspects for cold cereal. I don't know why we have had the erroneous impression that we have a... More

Nice little touches,like ice water at the front counter to fill your water bottle. must not forget the delicious chocolate chip cookies and the coffee at the front also. The waiting area in the front lobby is full of "eye-candy".....the beautiful pictures of this... More

Have not stayed here for about 5 years, was glad to know that it is still a nice friendly hotel. The ice cream is served between 6 and 8 PM and a nice treat after dinner. Also a breakfast buffet, waffles, muffins, oatmeal, toast, yogurt, fruit. Enjoyable.

We stayed her for the summer solstice and enjoyed the midnight sun. Comfortable, unique, great location on the river. I would love to go back and stay again. There is a restaurant next door with delicious Alaskan salmon, and a putting green to hit golf balls across the river. Fun family atmosphere.

stayed overnight when I was passing through town. Nice that it is close to airport with free shuttle. Rooms are dated in decor and the ones next to the elevator really noisy with the motors and ice machines. Breakfast was great for a 'continental' breakfast.

Thank you for writing. For clarification: our room decor is intended to convey a Fairbanks, lodgey feel. We are sorry that you feel it is dated but we are going for the Gold Rush, old time feel. We freshen our rooms every winter and last winter did the curtains and some carpets. We are glad that you enjoyed the breakfast.... More
