Good Basics

Free breakfast was typical Best Western...i.e. SLIGHTLY above average. Staff was very cordial. Only downside for those driving their car (or a rental) in the winter...not enough electric plug-ins to plug your car in overnight. Get there late, your car will be unplugged..Could be a problem in the morning for you when it's really cold (below - 10) in the mornings. Rooms and building very nice and well kept.

Convenient

A short walk to Fred Meyers, a quick cab ride to the airport, a quick trip to UAF... The rooms were clean, shower was HOT, room was warm - even when 47 below outside. Yep, a good value!

Disappointed with staff

The bed is great! I love the mattress-that is one of the reasons I like staying at this hotel in Fairbanks. I was disappointed in not getting my room cleaned on one day and then it getting halfway cleaned on another day. When I called the desk for the second day, the desk clerk said she would check on it and get back to me. She never called back. The check-in was great, but two of my contacts were with unconcerned desk personal who did not seem friendly to me as a customer.

Last road trip for the summer

I went up with friends for the weekend, the hotel is gorgeous! We were all very excited to stay here. Rooms are very welcoming and big! But I have to say they have poor management, on several occasions we had many problems with them.

Future repeat customer

Close to the airport and easy to find. CLEAN! Comfortable beds with an abundance of pillows. Snow outside my window. Unbelievable low price. Well stocked with toiletries. I can't believe how affordable this room was. Better price than the hostel I stayed in last year in another state with a shared kitchen and bathroom. I hope to stay here again in the future!
