What a great place to stay ! In Fairbanks on short notice, they offered a military retiree rate for a Jacuzzi Suite. The room was great, the bed was so comfortable, and that jacuzzi really made it relaxing. "Robert" at the front desk was professional, courteous, and very informative on property offerings and what was happening locally. So awesome -... More

We stayed here because our flight got in at midnight. It is very close to the airport and they offer 24 hr shuttle! We missed breakfast but they got us some boiled eggs and pastries. Told us to walk out back and enjoy the river. Our room was very clean and comfy beds! Our only complaint was the temp of... More

Pike's Waterfront Lodge was recommended to us by different friends. We booked there from Northway, Alaska and our stay was terrific. The staff were superb, the accommodation was fabulous with a ground floor view of the Chena River. Early complimentary breakfast was much appreciated with fresh fruit, coffee, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, whatever. I would definitely stay here again. In fact,... More

Pikes is wonderful, I stayed here while visiting family in Alaska. My Aunt told me how great it was and she was spot on. The lobby is full of Alaskan animals and paintings, the room was super clean, the bed was comfortable, when I asked for an item it was received quickly. There were baby ducks in the lobby that...

We have stayed here on a number of occasions in the last couple of years-usually in winter. The staff are very friendly. Check-in was professional and quick. We had a room with two queen beds, and I do not agree with other comments that it was a small room, nor do I agree that the public areas are shabby. It... More

The continental breakfast is also quite satisfactory. We also dined at Pike's Landing & found it to be quite satisfactory. As to the reviews I've read about the... More

Our stay at Pikes was part of a package deal for our trip to Fairbanks so I did not have alot of choice in our lodging. Once I received our itinerary I went out and begin reading reviews most of which were negative. I mentioned this to my family and added "it is only one night". Upon our arrival we... More

The final night of our winter vacation in Fairbanks was spent in a fireplace room at Pikes's. ( because it was close to the airport) We arrived in a howling snowstorm that kept threatening to blow open our balcony doors. A couple of hours later, however, the snow stopped and the clouds broke to reveal a brilliant aurora display. This... More

Hello- Thanks for writing and we are glad that you enjoyed the location and the breakfast. After we read your review, the owner looked at the fireplace rooms, among our best rooms. He believes that we have neglected maintenance on the carpet. It's a high quality carpet that needs more attention than we have given it. It needs to be... More
