I know i gave it an average rating, but in Fairbanks, that is high praise. Pike's is one of two properties that are on the good part of the Chena River which is right outside the back of the property. The other property is the Princess Lodge and that has been undergoing a massive renovation and was not open at... More

From the moment we checked in, this place exceeded my expectations. The front desk was always very helpful. Our rooms were very clean and the breakfasts were delicious. I highly recommend this hotel! Thank you!

Thanks for your enthusiastic comments. Some of our specialty rooms such as the fireplace rooms and the jacuzzi rooms are certainly suitable for a honeymoon -particularly if one adds the champagne add-ons and a romantic dinner at Pike's Landing. Deborah More

My wife has stayed here several times on business trips and loved the funky art and hospitality. We stayed there again, traveling as a family with two young kids, as part of the Alaska Railroad "Aurora Train" package on a recent Saturday trip from Anchorage. The train ride is long, over 12.5 hours, so we were tired and hungry by... More

Hello- Thanks for writing and we are so sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. We are sorry that you missed eating at Pike's Landing since it was so late. FYI, our front desk does hate info on delivery options. It also sounds as if you missed most of breakfast. Since we always have a yogurt bar, make... More

I stayed at Pike's at the beginning and end of my trip to Fairbanks this March. I have stayed there in the past and had positive experiences so I looked forward to another pleasant stay, and was not disappointed. Once again I stayed in a Fireside Room which has a lovely view of the river and a most comfortable bed,... More

Thanks for writing; we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for mentioning by name the employees who assisted you. A little known fact: Christena is one of the most senior employees at Pike's and we so appreciate her being at Pike's for 14 years! Regarding the furniture; we do replace/recover upholstered ones every winter and I don't... More

My wife and I went to Fairbanks (we live in Anchorage) for a weekend Toastmasters conference. The conference was held at Pike's, and we couldn't have asked for anything better! I had previously stayed at Pike's one night in 2005 after seeing Big Head Todd, and once before that when a friend got married and had the reception at "the... More

Thanks for your great review; Christena was happy to get your wife, dog and you into Pike's. I appreciate your acknowledging her super customer service. Yes, the continental breakfast buffet is free to all guests in the winter time and ice cream cones free to Alaska residents. Thanks for staying and we hope you come back soon. Deborah More

Yes, the river was frozen, so we didn't see jet skis and boats. We saw sno-cats and skiers, hikers, dogs, and cars and trucks driving along the river. And a snow-blanketed landscape straight out of a Christmas card. Pike's is a homey, pleasant, no-stress kind of place you want for a relaxing visit. The people are pleasant, the rooms are... More

Thanks for writing. Just as information, our complimentary continental breakfast (including Ursula's new yogurt bar) is replaced by a for-charge hot and cold buffet breakfast. You did describe one of the downsides of the shuttle service in that we generally only have one driver in the winter. I should mention that when I stay at Pike's (I live in Anchorage)... More

The experience we had at Pike's was great! After a scheduling mishap, the staff worked overtime to make sure that we had our rooms. The facility was very clean, the ice cream was delicious, and the breakfast was superb. This is a MUST STAY for your next trip to Fairbanks.

There's plenty of other choices in fairbanks to stay so don't stay here. Staff just rude and unfriendly. Only reason to stay is the view of the river and the 'lodge feel' but still not worth it. It looks nice but atmosphere is a large cold hotel.
