Stayed one night early Summer 2015

We stayed here one night and at the Wedgewood the other night. This hotel is much nicer. It has a kitchen and living room area and a separate bedroom. It was clean and updated. We didn't go to the restaurant but heard it was good! Right next to Safeway so convenient if you needed to get groceries.

Good for the price

We enjoy our stay. The room was spacey and clean. There was a couple of supermarket beside it, which add to its convenience. The only thing to complain is that the heater is a bit noisy. Other than that, we would recommend the hotel.

A nice place to stay

The room was really much larger than I expected. I was clean and comfortable except for the bed. If they were to make improvements it would be the bed. The location was great if you wanted food. Two supermarkets were within a few hundred yard walk. The staff were always helpful and friendly. If I were to go back to Fairbanks, Alaska, I would likely stay there again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

I visited Fairbanks Alaska to see Polar Bears. The hotel is 2 miles from the airport where the tour trips started. Other types of attractions were a long bus ride to the down town area of the city.

Somewhat disappointed

The hotel was reasonably close to the airport, but that is all it was close to. The staff when we arrived was pleasant and helpful, but the morning staff was just the opposite. We were told there would be shuttle service but we ended up renting a car. It was not what I thought it would be. The room was nice but warm. They were kind enough to give us a later checkout at no charge, but overall it was a little disappointing.

Close to airport and free shuttle

This was great value- the room had a full kitchen, the staff was friendly, it was clean, there was a free shuttle from the airport, and a free phone kiosk at the airport to call when I arrived. Great!!
