Our room was on first floor, river side. Only about 30' from the river. Quite a few trees along the edge of the river but could still see river between the trees. Rooms were clean, comfortable, rooms on first floor had small deck off each room and I think upper floor rooms had balconies. Housekeeping was good. Had a nice... More

My wife and three dogs just finished a trip on the AL-Can and finding Pikes Waterfront edge was incredible!!! It was very hard to find pet friendly hotels along the route (especially since we were traveling with 3 dogs). Not only did the staff welcome our dogs with open arms they were very professional courteous towards us as well. Pike's... More

This was the last day on our Alaska trip and the worst sleeping experience. In fact It is nearly imposible to sleep here. The fridge is super noisy, the aircon also and moreover pretty ineffective. And then on top you have the Icing and vending machines from the corridor that add to the noise. The bed is extremely tired and... More

Our room was decent and had been rennovated in the not too distant past. I thought the bar area in the lobby was inadequate, had very short hours, and was pretty small. My problem with the place is the restaurant serves a lot of buffets and so the lobby kind of smells like a school cafeteria. We were in the... More

Pike's Waterfront Lodge is a mid-grade property on the Chena River. Interesting decor, which I guess is needed for their harsh winters. Our rooms were clean, spacious and well maintained. The price was fair and the service by the staff was good.

This is a 3 star at best. The beds were comfortable. Temperature control was impossible, could not leave glass door open as the airport was across the street. The A/C worked once in a while. Breakfast was a joke but no place else to go. Try getting a waitress to bring you coffee.

The room was large and spacious with comfortable furnishings, a balcony and a window that opened for fresh air. The campus was lovely situated on the river with a beautiful river walk. Located close to the airport and a grocery. The two drawbacks were a front desk that seemed confused and a restaurant manager with the personality of a drill... More

Pike's is tremendously located right on the banks of the Chena River. They are hardly a half mile off Highway 3, about 1.4 miles from Fairbanks International Airport, 2.6 miles from Pioneer Park amusement center and 3.9 miles from the University of Alaska Museum of the North. They offer a free shuttle to the airport and train station. We loved... More
