I stayed almost a week, Sunday through Friday, and had a great experience. The room was nice and had refrigerator and microwave - handy for snacks. There was a sitting area with a TV and another TV in the sleeping area.
The staff members are all friendly and VERY helpful. There weren't any requests I made that weren't positively resolved in a short time.
The dining room/restaurant/bar was quite nice with a good lunch and dinner menu.
The only two shortcomings I found were: 1) not as good or complete a 'local eatery' reference available, and; 2) the Continental Breakfast, though fair, was not overwhelming. It paled by comparison to the rest of the amenities.
As for the local eateries references I asked about local places to find a dinner. There was no mention of a BBQ place literally across the street nor a couple of other restaurants that were within 3-5 blocks.
The breakfast had bread for toasting, fruit, cold cereals and 'hot bowls' for oatmeal. The orange juice tasted a bit weak - especially compared to other Continental breakfasts I've had. There weren't any other 'hot offerings - many places have makings for an egg sandwich and/or waffles. It seems that the last time I was there - a few years ago - they had the waffles.
I'll go back and stay there the next time I'm in Fairbanks. Overall it was a great place and experience.
