Extremely disappointing

This resort was mediocre at best. It's a considerable distance from downtown or any of the touristy destinations (apart from the Creamer's Field/bird watching which is adjacent). The walk to downtown, while not completely absurd in distance, is not exactly picturesque as you have to walk next to the freeway. Walking to places like Pioneer Park, Museum of the North or the Pump House is only recommended for the spry. The property looks like a 70s-era college apartment building (which I believe it actually is during the school months), and the interior is much like a cheap roadside motel's. The best part is that they offer a shuttle around town; unfortunately, it only operates in the afternoons so forget about it taking you anywhere prior to 1pm. But at least the shuttle drivers are pleasant and helpful. Too little value for the amount I paid and very underwhelmed by their service and attitude.

So So.... 1st time was better

It was cool the first night then the second night when we were leaving to goto the bar security came up and checked us saying they got a noise complaint and we were like "how did u know it was us? Were leaving" and he gave some lame excuse... So we left then when it came to late checkout there policy is 1:00pm and we checked out at 1:30pm and the supervisor did me a 'favor' by not charging me for a half of day.... Customer service jus lacked a bit

Very spacious

The accommodations were very spacious surrounded by nice grounds. The only drawback was the mattress was very firm.

Wedgewood Resort Bear Lodge

I was only there for one night. The wireless internet did not work in the rooms and I couldn't get it to work in the lobby. Used their computer in the gift shop...not private at all. Young staff need more customer relations training.

Good Value in Fairbanks

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a few days before heading to Denali for the summer season. Suites were well-equiped, with new appliances and tv. Beds and pillows were uncomfortable, but could easily have been fixed. Also, the suites appear to have once been apartments, but the walls are thin, and you can hear a lot of your neighbor noise. It was nice to be able to have somewhere to have a home-cooked meal, especially having just spent a week driving the Alcan.

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

Great place for the family

The room has tons of space for the kids to run and play, tv's need to be updated though.
