Visited Fairbanks in March for our 1st time and wanted to stay in a pet friendly hotel. This hotel accepts ESA/Support Animals free of charge! just bring documentation. This hotel is lovely.. We plugged in our RV in the parking lot and it was very convenient (temps were in the negative 20-30's. Having electrical plug ins made it very satisfying...

Due to unforeseen circumstances, my one night stay lasted about a week. That stated, I have to acknowledge that the facilities and, most importantly, the staff, were great to interact with. From the young lady from Montana who cleaned the room through to the morning chef, with a bit of an Irish/Scottish accent, to the front desk staff, all were...

This was a nice property things are still looking new. We never had time for breakfast but the coffee was always fresh and hot. Everything went flawless check-in only took a matter of minutes along with the check-out. It is on the outer edge of Fairbanks close to the University but everything is only a few minutes away.

Workout room was filthy and the pool was under repair so the kids were disappointed. The breakfast had no yogurts in the fridge and the set up woman was scurrying around trying to set up breakfast at 6:45 when it starts at 6:30. Room was clean, but this experience was not quite up to what i expect from hie.

We came to Fairbanks specifically to see the Northern Lights and I had enough points for free nights at HIExpress. This hotel was fine, no problems. The check in clerk, man, was fantastic! I mentioned we were there for the Northern Lights and I just saw the newspaper from the day before how vibrant they were and did he know...

We have stayed here three times in the past three years. We happened to stay this year during spring break. The hotel staff were very disappointing. They were clearly more interested in cleaning the rooms of the tour bus patrons than "regular" returning customers. We stayed five nights and had our trash emptied and bed made once during that time....

This hotel has airport shuttle as mentioned on its website. we also confirmed it with the hotel 2 days before our trip.
