Billie's is a wonderful place. I stayed one night in May 2013 and I really enjoyed it. The showers are nice and hot, Billie has towels for everyone. The upstairs is a no-talking zone, so that is really lovely. The bus system in Fairbanks has a stop near by and is easy and cheap to use. I walked to the University of Alaska-Fairbanks and it was not very far at all. If you get the opportunity to get to the University's Museum of the North, please go. That is a fantastic museum.
