This was the most horrible place I have ever seen. We were attending a function in Fairbanks and checked the website for a nice motel. The pictures of the rooms at the Ranch Motel were very nice with Victorian furniture, we couldn't find a picture of the outside of the motel. When we arrrived at the motel we found the... More

Our group did not even stay this place was so bad! We found it online and were impressed with the touting of cleanliness and really nice looking victorian rooms. However, once we arrived it was a completely different story. The place is really old and run down. The beds were sagging and the rooms reeked of stale smoke. I didn't... More

We didn't do anything but look in the room before we left. This is a very old falling down building. The mattresses had a 4 inch sway. The rooms smelled so much of old smoke that we couldn't breathe. There was nowhere safe that we could walk our pet. It is on a very busy street.

friendly people, nice rooms, excellent wireless, good location, clean, free ice, and a cute little dog, these people have always came through for me, always. I have been staying there for three summer seasons now

I visited Fairbanks last week of October, 2005, and stayed at the Ranch Motel. It's a very nice place. The people running it are nice. They tout the cleanliness, and they are right. The location is pretty good. Restaurant, laundromat, and quickie mart are right nearby. The motel is a one story building that stretches west to east between Cushman... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There's lots of hotels in Fairbanks, Alaska. The trick is to find a place with management that believes strongly in continual, careful maintenance and is picky about room cleanliness. The Ranch Motel is that! All rooms ground floor, each with its own outside door - park right in front of your unit. Phones in rooms, free local calls, cable TV, friendly knowledgable staff. Discounts for cash, even if reserved on card. ... more   less
