Front desk person who checked us in was the most unwelcoming I've experienced in memory. He seemed to have other more important matters with which to deal. Later, when I asked for change for washers and dryers he threw 32 quarters on the desk laid flat, which I had to gather up and count to make sure amount was correct.... More

We stayed there a couple of days as part of a cruise tour. Our room was warm except when we had the outside balcony door open. We had the AC on full blast and it barely kept up. The box fan made it tolerable. The room is appointed really more fancily than one would expect. Curiously, there is no room... More

Visited the Pike's waterfront lodge in July 2015 for 2 nights. This is a very nice place with lots of colors, paintings and a nice floral gardens. Situated right next to the river and walking distance from pikes landing, you can't go wrong. We didn't get an opportunity to eat in the restaurant in the hotel as we visited pikes... More

Pikes Waterfront Lodge is located on the banks of the Chena River. It is not a chain hotel and has its own style. The rooms were great and when you check in you receive a token for ice cream served in the evenings. Wonderful view of the river that had quite a bit of boat activity. Added bonus was Pike's...

It is located close to the airport and is on the river. They have a restaurant but it doesn't appear to always be open. Except it is open for breakfast just can't figure out dinner times. There is a bar, but can't seem to find it open. There is a restaurant next door and is probably owned by the hotel.... More

Rustic lodge. Large room with microwave and small redrig. Close to Fairbanks Intl but not to the city. Lodge offers r/t shuttle pp. We walked 1.5 miles to Fred Myers for food. Alaska restaurants are very expensive. Pike's is the starting point for the Iditirod and the late Susan Butcher is a hero.

Great location near the airport with shuttle service.Check in was effortless. All of the folks that work there are friendly and courteous. The rooms are spacious and clean and a pretty good value. Next door is their restaurant(no its not in the hotel). ALL of the food and service is A+ Any time I travel through Fairbanks, I will definitely... More

We stayed here only briefly - checked in after midnight and left in the morning. We did get to enjoy the grounds and sample the (expensive) breakfast. The breakfast is decent and has a variety of options. The wait staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No complaints, no raves, just comfortable. Would not mind spending a...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a Celebrity Cruise package. We stayed in a separate building to the right of the main building. It was very close to the airport which was a plus after our long flight. The main lobby was very nice but the lobby in the building we stayed at smelled and was dirty.... More

We were booked here on our royal Caribbean pre-cruise tour. There were about 8 total busses that night. The best part of the hotel is the lobby and the wifi. They were great. The rooms, cleanliness (carpets and bedspreads in particular), and breakfast were sub par. Also, the hotel is near the airport and one restaurant but really nothing else.... More
