I travel to Fairbanks a lot for work and I won't stay anywhere else. The staff are friendly, the rooms are large and the beds are comfy. I've stayed several dozen times in the last few years and of course every once in a while room service gets missed, but I feel like every stay can't be SUPER PERFECT. The... More

We had a pleasant 3 day stay here. Our room was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Hallways and stairways were wide, nicely carpeted and very clean. Front desk service was efficient and polite. Breakfast was way above average for a freebie. The night clerk offered to ring our room if he spotted Northern Lights during the night.

We arrived at 3 am so extremely tired from long day of travel. The beds were so comfortable and pillows were just right. What a great place to stay after a long day. It's very close to the airport and easy to find.
