“An excellent choice”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The Hotel North Pole was an excellent choice for our stay while we were visiting Fairbanks! The lobby is beautiful and inviting. The room was nice and comfortable. The hotel staff was always very pleasant and more than helpful. I wanted to especially mention how tremendously helpful Ellie was. She went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of when we had a minor issue with our room. I would stay here again without hesitation if I am ever in the Fairbanks area again!!

I lived at Hotel North Pole for four months while I worked at a nearby military base. In my work, I have lived in a lot of extended-stay hotels around the world; I'm happy to report that Hotel North Pole is one of the friendliest and most well maintained extended-stay hotels I have experienced. Wanda, the manager, is almost always there and she is very responsive to any issues. She and her staff enjoy telling us "outsiders" about all the great sights and activities in the Fairbanks area. They have great coffee and a generous variety of complementary breakfast options. The staff even sponsored a low-key social "game night" for guests - which was fun! In short, I can't imagine a finer place to stay in the Interior.

Room Tip: Room 300 is a big studio apartment with operable windows on two sides including a view of the forest...

We stayed in a handicapped room for 10 days while my husband recuperated from surgery. The room provided everything we needed, full size fridge, stove, microwave, walk-in shower,etc. The staff, from manager to maid, was outstandingly helpful and caring. The hotel is nicely decorated, nice entrance, nice sitting areas, nice rooms.

The location is great - you can walk to restaurants, Safeway, hardware store, library.

Our RV was in for repair so we checked into this hotel and it was a good value. We had a very clean room and the service was excellent. In fact, we found the first room did not have a tub, only shower and we needed a shower; no problem without any hassle our room was switched. Service could not have been more efficient or friendly.

The continental breakfast in the morning was adequate and chocolate chip cookies in the evening hit the spot. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on future visits.

Room Tip: We did not use the pool nor the fitness center but am sure they would be fine. We were on the third...

Fun, clean, and a great place to stay while visiting family and friends in the area. Make sure Wanda knows of your arrival and she will have your cookies out for you.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and will meet your need, give you directions, chat about the area and bring a real feeling of hometown to your visit.

Room Tip: If you are staying more than one night see if there is a min suite available ...the extra room is gr...

Great experience at the Hotel North Pole. All the staff was helpful. When we first arrived the room we were given was not what was indicated, problem was fixed quickly by Crystal and it was even at a lower cost - if there for over 5 days for sure get one of the suites. Rooms/beds very comfortable. As cheesy as it sounds - cookies in the lobby in the evening were a pretty sweet treat. Will stay for sure on the next trip.

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. Wanda and the staff were the best. Everone was very accommidating. It was a clean quiet place with an average but good continental breakfast. Wanda gave us many Ideas and suggestions for places to go and things to see. This is a must for a place to stay.
