Nice drive up. Ice museum unique. Good food in restaurant. Had to stay in one of the "dorm rooms"(signature room) only rooms available..clean and bed was comfortable but very basic..nothing special. Don't know what Lodge rooms are like. In Aug. flowers blooming everywhere..very pretty.

What an unusual place! The ice hotel and bar was very beautiful. We were able to speak with the ice carvers and that was very interesting! If it weren't so cold we would have spent more time inside! The rest of the resort was just very unusual. The hot springs were nice but had a Sulphur smell. The greenhouses and... More

If you have some time to kill and you are in Fairbanks, this is a great evening. The people are super nice and accommodating. The hot spring is affordable. You are an hour away from town so it is a nice retreat. Massages are offered but are expensive.

We went to the hot springs and then we went to have lunch at the restaurant. The food was great and the service was amazing. There was also a wedding going on in the side room which was unique to see. I would defiantly recommend having lunch or dinner at the resort restaurant.

About 60 miles east from Fairbanks at the end of the paved road, there is a wooden gate, behind which is the parking lot, buildings and hotels. And signs to the pools. Following the signs, I found the green building where I bought the ticket (13usd). The lockers (25 cents), showers and dressing rooms are right behind the corner. There... More

We stayed in this camping for 3 days and 2 nights, we had an RV and we paid only 20 euro per night (no hook ups). We were sleeping next to the river and the RV places are so nice and you'll probably see a lot of squirrels. We did a lot of activities: horse riding, kanoeing, biking,... They have... More

It was very nice. The changing rooms were sort of run down. I have been to much nicer hot springs around the world. However, keeping in mind we that we are at the end of the world and in the middle of nowhere I would give it a very good rating. The water was a nice temperature. The $15 entry... More
