This summer, we initially booked 7 Gables through Priceline.com for 2 nights. Surprisingly, when we arrived 7 Gables, we were told NO room for us! (I am still fighting to get my money back from Priceline.com!) The whole town was booked out even almost all B&Bs! After spending almost 4 hrs to call every single hotel and B&B ( W/ the help from Fairbanks Tourist Bureau, they are super helpful!), we finally got one room from a B&B about 30 miles from the town! We also found there were a couple of rooms available from Ranch for the 2nd night. So we took it since it is in town! After our one day Arctic Circle Tour, we arrived Ranch pretty late. I am sure like many, we were not impressed w/ the out looking of the motel! When we checked in, the two ladies are very friendly! We asked to change a credit card for the charge, they did it w/o any issues. The room is way better than we thought from outside! It is small, but very clean. This is what we need! It also has free Wi-Fi! The location is very convenient. I totally agree w/ some reviewers, DO NOT JUDGE THIS MOTEL FROM THE OUTSIDE!
