Spacious clean rooms with nice beds although the decor is a little like grandma worked on it. Some excellent art work displayed in the main lodge and a very good breakfast buffet in the a.m. We enjoyed our cocktails while strolling the grounds and reading all the fairbanks history that is displayed.

Thanks for your comments although our owner would take exception to your grandma comments! We appreciate your comments on the history signs. We also have quite a few that we developed with US Fish and Game and the Fairbanks Watershed Council. We do hope you return as we keep making improvements to Pike's!

As you know people give all sorts of reviews. I was a bit skeptical. However after I entered the front door all that went away. First of all we were booked on the first floor and I requested a change to the third floor w/river view and no questions asked and with a smile there I was. The room was very comfortable with two queen beds, quite, clean and well stocked with extras. Free W-FI, ice cream and comfortable lobby. The restaurant next door has a good menu, I had the fish and chips and loved it! Husband had the lobster bisque and is still raving. If we need a place to stay next time we go to Fairbanks, this will be it. Within minutes of the airport.

Room Tip: River front rooms are very nice, third floor.

From the complimentary airport shuttle and arrival at the hotel to our departure from Pikes and the complimentary shuttle to our tour location Pikes provided a quality experience. We will stay there again.

This is a very nice hotel. Spacious, clean rooms, with refridgerator, microwave and big fluffy beds!
They have ice cream available every night from a local parlor. I think it is homemade, that was the creamiest chocolate ice cream Ive ever eaten. Delish! This is convenient to the airport, Discovery Riverboat ( which was another great attraction) and the main roads.

I got a smoking deal on the web for this place- so google for that if you're making a reservation. A room for < $100 when my friends paid nearly $200 for theirs. The room was big and well appointed. Their lobby area was spacious and had a number of amenities. There is a restaurant associated with the hotel that was fine to eat at. All in all a good trip, and I'd stay there next time I'm in Fairbanks.

Room Tip: Ask for something on the river view side.

8:00 am and the maid is banging on doors announcing "house keeping". Next, she enters into a heated argument in the hall with a co-worker. They begin to yell at each other. Okay I understand many people are already up a 8:00 so no big deal, BUT I'M ON VACATION. I want to sleep in. I was out of the bed like a rocket wondering what all the noise was about. After I called the front desk and they assured me that her supervisor would go talk to her, BUT it starts all over with her knocking and ponding on doors and yelling "house keeping". My stay was ruined. Oh yea, one more thing. The bell man was never on duty. We had to unload and load our car without assistance. Not much customer service. The property is beautiful, but don't stay here if you want a good night sleep or help with your bags.

Room Tip: Bring your ear plugs.
