I arrived at the hotel at 23:40 approx. on Saturday. I checked in and was given the key to my room, I asked which direction the room was facing and was told it was facing the road side. I asked if I could have a room facing north and they said that should not be a problem. They changed it straight away. I had a problem with the phone not calling out to local numbers so somebody came up to try it, they could not get the phone to work either so they let me use their personal one, which was very nice. Hotel was secured with key cards on every door except the front door which was always manned. I did not use the food at hotel as I only slept 4 hours each day so I could fit in the Aurora trips I had planned. The bed was the best I've slept in from any hotel experience I have ever had. As some other's have mentioned the furnishings are a little dated, but I use the hotel as a hub/base to do photography from it does not need to be high fashion and in reality it would look out of place in Fairbanks I think.
Hotel location can been seen clearly on both google and bing maps which I encourage you to look at if you visit this hotel as you can see how brilliant the location is. Right near Walmart which has everything you could every want, a great book shop called barnes and noble and a hunting/sporting supplies shop for outdoor kit. Also very close to the roads leading north for great aurora photo shoots.
I will always keep returning to this hotel every time I go to fairbanks for aurora photography as it offers everything I want from a base of operations for photography.
