Great for a family of 5

It was setup as a two bedroom apartment, so there was plenty of space for a family of 5. Great value for our money. It was well kept and very clean. Plus, the grounds were very nice and inviting. Glad we stayed here. Perfect for a relaxing trip.

Great Place to Stay!

We spent a week visiting our kids at UAF. The weather was great, we took in the Ice Sculptures which were amazing, visited the antique auto museum, which was very impressive, spent time at the Chena Hot Springs and of course did some serious snow boarding. A great time and a great place to stay! Very clean, very nice, very quiet with lots of room. Will definitely stay there again!

Wedgewood resort Fairbanks

The staff was friendly but could have given better directions to our unit. Unit was larger and nicer than expected and we were very comfortable. Third floor unit without stairs would be difficult for older/disabled/injured guests. No elevator. Would definately stay again, good value for price and good location

Excellence at its best

I loved staying at this hotel! The staff were so nice, friendly and always helpful. Chelsea helped answer some of my questions over the phone before I went there. It is best to call and ask them about your concerns since I have learnt from my travels that different hotels in different States operate a little differently. They have a shuttle service from and to the Fairbanks International Airport. BUT like all other hotels in Alaska, when you get to the airport you have to call them using the courtesy phone at airport to tell them you have arrived and ready to be picked up. They will send a shuttle to pick you up in about 10 to 15 mins. Steve, the driver at the Wedgewood was very nice, courteous and well conversed. I loved travelling with him. The location is very central and I loved the fact that the different tour guides knew where this hotel was so pick up and drop off was no issue. The landscape of this hotel in winter was heavenly. There is a wildlife refuge next to the hotel so a walk during a subfreezing winter morning was very nice, managed to see a Moose! BUT be careful around wildlife. Their kitchen is closed during winter but there are many nearby restaurants and cafes, instead of cooking at the hotel try going out to try local delicacies.

Nice place. Front Desk people not so pleasant.

I'm 19 and booked this hotel when I came into town. It had great reviews and was affordable. When I went to check in the man at the front desk told me he could not rent the room I pre-paid for because I wasn't 21. That was it. He didn't say he would refund me my money and recommend a different hotel. He just said he couldn't rent to me because I wasn't a certain age, and just gave me a blank stare, and finally he said, "Well can you have a person who is 21 stay with you?" Don't get me wrong, very nice place, but front desk was unpleasant and far from helpful.

Excellent hotel

Very clean, very comfortable beds, quiet location but not far from highway, in addition to in-hotel restaurant there are excellent restaurants nearby. On the grounds is a gem of a car museum that hotel customers have access to for $5.00. It was unbelievable!! Nice laundry facilities. Wonderful and helpful staff. Highly recommend this hotel.

Bear Lodge Hotel

The hotel room at the bear lodge hotel in Fairbanks was really nice and clean. The only reason I'm not giving a 5 star rating is because the room did not have a microwave or a small refrigerator but other than that, it was perfect. The staff were very friendly and courteous.
