Stayed for three nights. Some five minutes walk from the main shopping area albeit it was in a quiet location next to the river. Rooms were quite spacious with a good shower. Hotel was very clean throughout and the staff were very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Enjoyable stay.

Spent a night in Fairbanks during early September, while travelling around Alaska, and wanted to stay "downtown", so the best place to decide was by checking on TripAdvisor, and based on the reviews and location I chose the Bridgewater. It is right downtown along the Chena River and a quick walk to several restaurants and pubs. There is an excellent... More

It was so nice to read your comments about your stay in Fairbanks and at the Bridgewater Hotel! Staying downtown does have a lot to offer and it’s nice to see you were able to experience so much of downtown, if only for the one night! Come back and see us next summer!

Clean and neat hotel - rooms were big enough and so was the bathroom ( although compact ) Clean and tidy rooms. Wifi, coffee machine were provided. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The only thing I will say about this hotel is that although it was a nice quite area on the river, there wasn't a lot around it... More

We stayed here for just one night based on price and ratings. I was on the lowest level, at the end, so I had the parking lot and road next to the room. But it was actually quiet, though I did have the wall unit ac going. bathroom and shower was small, but was adequate. Breakfast is served in the... More

We stayed at the Bridgewater Hotel in Fairbanks, Alaska and I cannot rate it highly enough. After a long drive there, we were delighted to be met with delicious punch and cookies. The rooms were more spacious than we had been experiencing and very clean and comfortable and the laundry was clean and well set up. The food in the... More

There was no questions asked that we didn't have a courteous and proper answer by the reception staff. The rooms were great , clean , comfortable. They offer... More

This hotel is very dated, and badly needs renovating. The bed was uncomfortable, pillows flat, no reading lights. There was a hole-in-the-window airconditioner, and the window overlooked Big Daddy's hamburger bar, so cooking smells abounded! The wifi was less than ultimum, and to top it off, when we were there the basement breakfast room was flooded, so they weren't able... More

A very nice hotel and a little more modern than we'd been used to on our road trip from Vancouver. The lobby was very welcoming, the owners seemed very hospitable, but unfortunately, the dining/breakfast room had been flooded due to recent heavy rains (first week of August) and wasn't available for use. The room we had was spacious and comfortable.... More
