Do yourself a favor and when in Fairbanks stay at this best western. From the moment we checked in to the day we checked out we were greeted with a warm friendly smile. The staff cleaned our room spotless and fresh towels every day. I know this is expected when you stay at a motel like best western, but it... More

This is a convenient, easy to find location just a few minutes drive from downtown, the University of Alaska Fairbanks and numerous shops and cafes. Very nice entrance and professional front desk staff greet travelers. The rooms are very comfortable, nicely decorated, well lit and the height of the table is good for sitting to work on a laptop.

Fairly new typical Best Western, Standard room comfortable and clean. Not much has changed since our first visit. Breakfast choices limited but adequate. For the money it is a pretty good choice. It does not have the character of say Pike's Landing but for the money it is a good deal. If you are there during aurora time ask the... More

Our initial check-in experience was most unpleasant. The young lady at the front desk said she couldn't honor the price of the reservation I made back in March because this hotel "isn't really part of Best Western. Mormons own this one and Indians own the other one." The next day we got it all squared away with the delightful manager... More

The hotel offers great value. It is located near the main attractions. It is also stone throw from the airport and train stations. I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is pretty basic but is ok considering I got this part of the room deal.

The check in process was easy. The room was very clean. It smelled a bit like a bleach cleaner had been used but it wasn't bothersome. Breakfast was included, but we didn't eat on property. The staff was friendly. Bed was very comfortable. Shower pressure was a bit lacking.

When we arrived we were first given a room that was already occupied then given a room that had not been cleaned. On the third try we were given a room that was clean and unoccupied. The person checking us in was very apologetic and gave us a huge discount on our 5 night stay so it made the hassle... More

not fancy but very clean, service great and breakfast was great!! It is out of the way of shopping or dining unless you hire a taxi, which we got lucky with the girl who picked us up at the airport, she took us to North Pole to visit Santa's house.
