Stayed at Pikes overnight ( in fact 2 nights as flight delayed ) on way out to Eagle. Pleasant staff and helpful on my visit. Room clean and warm, nothing more to say. Great place to stay if overnighting between flights. Good location on the river which could be appreciated in the long summer evening.

I was pleasantly surprised at how thorough the amenities are at this comfortable rustic lodge across from the airport. We needed a recliner to accommodate a member of our party and they were very quick to make sure our request was met. The people are very friendly, warm and inviting. The complementary breakfast, WiFi, & guest laundry made us feel... More

Hotel so so, really needs to be updated. Heavy exterior curtain in bath really needs to be removed style out of date and does not allow light into the shower. Bed was bumpy, pillows lumpy. They advertise a restaurant adjacent to the hotel, which I understand is owned by the hotel. I say not worth the visit. Free continental breakfast... More

I was surprised at how thorough the amenities are at this comfortable lodge across from the airport. This hotel is a regular stop for tour groups so it's usually packed during the tourist season. It certainly isn't five star or anything, but good and comprehensive service goes a long way in this far-off town. Love the rustic decorating, and there's... More

Pike Waterfront Lodge is in need of renovations and updating as it is looking and smelling very tired. Jay (note to the owner), it is time to change the carpets, touch up the walls and give the bathrooms much needed TLC. You have done well to bring on partners for the restaurant and we welcomed back Pike as a great... More

Hello- You will be happy to know that we are redoing the bathrooms this winter. We just finished four test bathrooms to see what colors/surfaces we like the best. We are sorry that you thought that we need renovation as we spend every winter repainting and re carpeting rooms and replacing soft good such as the curtains last year. We... More

We live in Fairbanks so have never stayed at Pike's Waterfront Lodge. We took advantage of the New Year's Special and really enjoyed our stay. Everything was 1st rate. We sure hope the special is offered again next year and we recommend Pike's Lodge to our out of town friends.

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
