As many have indicated, this is not the Ritz. But if you want to experience Arctic Alaska and the community of truckers that drive up and down the "haul road" (aka Dalton Highway), this is the place to go. We spent two nights there and while the room is quite basic, the whole experience was amazing. Dave was the best guide we could have had and really made our experience what it was. All of the staff went above and beyond, but we spent the most time with him. He even drove us back to Fairbanks when a snowstorm grounded the plane that was supposed to come get us. The driving was hairy, but we were in great hands. If you go there you HAVE to take advantage of all that is offered. Ride a dogsled, go to Wiseman for the Aurora (and hopefully you will have a chance to visit with Jack - a longtime resident of Wiseman and about the most interesting man you will meet). Take the tour up the Dalton to Atigun Pass. Oh, and eat the Tator Tots at the Trucker's Cafe - it will bring back memories of childhood!
