Excellent staff! Evelyn, Alita, Leila and Miles were all very friendly and helpful. This is an older building that was recently and completely renovated and upgraded with modern, well-designed furniture, fixtures and decor. Rooms are on the small side but are typical of the room size when this property was built. Nice hot breakfast buffet (extra fee). Great location downtown along the river with several dining choices just steps away. Complimentary van shuttle service to/from the airport. If in Fairbanks again, this would be my top choice!

Thank you for the great review! We are glad that you enjoyed our renovated property, as well as our bountiful breakfast buffet! The Bridgewater is located in a prime, central location for guests to explore Fairbanks without necessarily needing a vehicle. We do hope to see you again, as the Bridgewater Hotel will now be open year round. See you soon!

This place is probably overlooked by many as it doesn’t have a known name on the sign but it is very nice. Tastefully renovated and very clean. Comfortable rooms and nice staff at the front desk. Would recommend as it is more affordable than most of the other hotels in downtown.

Thank you for your review. The Bridgewater Hotel prides itself on being Fairbanks' only boutique hotel, independently run and operated. We are glad that the absence of a brand/chain on our sign did not deter you from booking with us. We hope to see you again, especially since the Bridgewater Hotel will be open year round!

Our room was great:comfortable mattress & pillows & everything worked. Wish they could've given us a different comforter when I requested one to replace the "vellux" ie plastic blanket. When I extended & paid our new reservation online, they told me they didn't actually have rooms available. I talked to the manager the next morning & she assured us that that wasn't true & we could stay in that room. That confusion should never have happened. Appreciated shuttle services.

This hotel looks brand new, very cute alaskan-decoration in the rooms, very comfortable. The option for breakfast is great, very satisfying. You can actually get a good price if you purchase it at the front desk, and it starts at 6:00 am! Most tours have a pick up service from this hotel.

Thank you, Lulu B, for the great review! The Bridgewater Hotel had a full renovation this past winter and we are happy you were one of the first guests to experience this upgrade. Our breakfast options are plentiful, and it looks like you took advantage of the discount offered at check-in. We know many of our guests have excursions and early flights and that is why we provide 24 hour staff at the Front Desk and an early start to breakfast. We hope to see you again if you return to Fairbanks!

Overall, this hotel was newly remodeled and it shows. The beds were comfortable, although one of the beds was a smaller than the others (it was likely a twin instead of a queen). I liked that there was a shower and not a tub in the bathroom. The breakfast offered was pretty good, even though it was a bit pricey at around $14 per person per day. I liked that the hotel had new RFID door locks, cable TV, and secured WiFi. The staff at the hotel were also nice and helpful. The location of this hotel is really convenient to downtown Fairbanks and is only a short walk from all the attractions downtown. Overall, it was a good stay and I would stay here again - it's just too bad that this is a seasonal hotel only open in the summer.
