Fantastic value in the winter! We went up for my dads 80th B-day. 2 beds in the bedroom, a hideabed and loveseat in the living room and a kitchen and dining area. quite comfortable. Sadly it is twice the cost in summer when we went for moms 80th. But still worth it :)

The amenities are lacking, the accommodations are tired and worn. Yes, I get that it is Alaska, but really... The food is mediocre and overpriced, the facility is tired. If you don't mind an overpriced and lackluster property that caters to bus tour crowds, this is worthy of consideration. The parking lot is the centerpiece of the resort and is... More

Didn't have opportunity to see others, but they'd have a long ways to go to find better accommodations than Bear Lodge. Located in town, there is no "view" so to speak, but rooms were exceptional. Well kept, good sleep accommodation, clean. Bar/pub stays open till midnight which is great because as other one night stopovers, many excursions return late. Not... More

The rooms were spacious and clean, but calling this a resort is a big joke. The front desk staff was totally unhelpful. The place looked like a retirement home. The glasses in the room were plastic covered by plastic and not glass. They did not have a pool or hot tub. Our view was of a dilapidated trailer park. There... More

The rooms at Bear Lodge are comfortable and very roomy. The gym is located in a separate building about 4 minutes across the compound and it has just the most basic of equipment. The Lodge is on the edge of a bird sanctuary, so there are walking trails through the woods and across to the adjacent fields to watch the... More

What a lovely location to unwind after a long drive from Tok! The rooms were comfortable and quiet. We had dinner in the restaurant and everyone in our party of seven enjoyed their meal. If a free continental breakfast had been included, Bear Lodge would have achieved a perfect score!

Stayed in a 4 star hotel before coming here, this hotel doesn't come close! The water fluctuation while taking a shower was horrible, the bed moved every time one of us needed to get up, and not a little! We had a horrible view of a roof, no balcony ! We weren't given a choice as we were with a... More

Bear lodge is a great little hotel in Fairbanks. Wonderful staff all around and extremely helpful. Centrally located and close to all the attractions. Tip: there is a shuttle bust that takes you to the various attractions for free. Tip driver at your discretion.

This lodge is well positioned for getting to the local attractions. The rooms are spacious and have all amenities...shower, bath,hair dryer, iron and board, TV, fidge etc. two large and comfortable beds and lots of room.
