Spent 2 nights here. Stayed on third floor over looking the river but was right over restaurant air conditioning unit so we could not leave our door open and enjoy the fresh air but I guess that was for the best because the screen door was torn and mosquitoes could have gotten into our room. Room had two queen size... More

The rooms here are good size and comfortable, however when we arrived we found paper on the floor, a wash cloth still wet and hanging in bathroom shower and a mint already eaten with the empty wrapper left. Restaurant was overly priced with slow service and average food.

Very clean and comfortable rooms. I suggest getting a room on the river side of the building. The other side looks out at the airport. Good location right off the Parks Highway so you can get to Denali NP easily. It's a 10 minute drive to "downtown." The restaurant there is great as well. I have stayed in several hotels... More

I was traveling with my son-in-law (long story) and had reserved a room with two beds, but when we checked in, they gave us a room with one king. I asked Mark at the front desk to change our room and all he did was give me a withering look and declare, "We're full, but we can roll a cot... More

We were part of a 30 person escorted tour group that stayed at the Pikes Waterfront Lodge as part of an Alaska 13 day land/sea tour. Our tour leader called Pikes and asked what time they closed the restaurant. She was told 11 pm. Our group came from Omaha, Ne and most of us had not had anything to eat... More

We stayed at this hotel as the final part of our celebrity land tour in our honeymoon with my wife.. it is conveniently located near the airport and they have 24 hour shuttle service to any place in fairbanks (free to the airport). Rooms are nice and get very dark with all the drapes (very useful in the land of... More

Thanks for your kind words; we spent extra effort on the blackout shades since we know how difficult it can be to get to sleep when the sun is still high in the sky. They act as extra insulation when it's -40 in the winter. Thanks for staying and we hope that you are able to return. Deborah More

I just stayed at Pike's prior to departing for Celebrity land tour. The accommodations were adequate and clean. They had nice extra services (Aromatherapy room, guest laundry, 24 hour fitness center, 24 hour shuttle to any location in/around Fairbanks). But the services provided by Jazzi at the front desk and Jim the shuttle bus driver were outstanding. They both offered... More

Pike's Waterfront Lodge offers many nice conveniences for visitors to Fairbanks. It is close to the airport and offers free shuttle service to and from the airport and into the center of Fairbanks. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The staff is helpful. Breakfast was excellent and the buffet dinner was varied and well prepared. The bar has... More

Thanks for writing your comments about the hotel. I would like to clarify that Pike's Landing is not part of the lodge and does have separate ownership. We do highly recommend the restaurant and are sorry that you did not enjoy yourself more there. I have had many delicious meals there and highly recommend the salmon salad with blueberries, nuts...

It is quite a bit slower in the winter then the summer, which meant that all the seats in front of the fire place were available! I had a very comfortable and found all the staff quite helpful. The bellman was especially courteous. The art, ranging from antiques to amusing signs, enticed me to actually check out all the floors-... More

Hello- Thanks for your kind words about the signs and service. We intended the signs to show what Pike's looks like summer and winter for our guests who don't see the other season. We do intend at least some of the signs to be humorous. Our owner, who wrote and designed the signs, has a great sense of humor and... More

This lodge was our first stop on the land portion of a land/sea vacation. We didn't choose it, it was part of the package. That said, we did book an additional night in advance to ease our jet lag, and it was very pricey (nearly $300). I wouldn't want to have spent that for each night, but as part of... More
