was given a room overlooking construction in the next building, equipped with nursing home features. the room was on the ground floor,could not open the windows because people were passing by and had to stay with closed shades when in the room. When complained to the owner ,the answer was."you booked it thru Orbitz and not directly with us and I could not explain you the room details".
This was NOT a hotel. More like a B&B or dormitory. Old, dirty, disheveled, up 3 flights of fire escape stairs. Overlooking a rundown neighborhood full of junk. They didn't even have an office! You have to go through a screened in greenhouse type area and up some stairs which lead you directly into somebody's kitchen!!! We honestly thought we couldn't possible be in the right spot. The only redeeming thing about this room was the spa/tub. It was quite nice. The sheets were torn, there was a urine stain on the skirt, curtain rods and pictures hung crooked. An old half-eaten cotton candy wand on the bookcase. Floors were bare, fake wood, and sticky. Bathroom floor filthy. Electric fireplace didn't work. One chair to sit in to watch tv. Not even any glasses to make a drink in. Lock on door (and also on bathroom door) was broken: my hubby had to fix it. If you are looking for something weird and out of the ordinary, this would be the place for sure!
My daughter got sick the morning we were supposed to leave. We were able to extend our stay, in the same room without any difficulty. There is a shared guest kitchen in the main hotel, I was shown where the soups were kept and encouraged to find something to fix for my sick child. If you have to be dealing with a puking child away from home, this is the place. Bathroom close to the comfy beds. Lots of books, videos and DVD's as well as internet & cable TV. A very comfortable, low-key place to stay. Exceptional kindness!!
I enjoyed my stay with friendly staff, comfortable room, and reasonable rate.
we stayed at the 7 gables for one night just to get away & relax. my husband & i enjoyed it very much. its tucked away & the inn itself is a beautiful house. we were not bothered. the only thing we missed out on was breakfast.
This was one of the most terrible experiences we have ever encountered in hotel accomodation and price. The accodation was no where near what was presented to us in the advertisment. It was a total bait and switch routine where we were sucked in by the advertising and given something old, dirty, non functioning and smoke filled. We hope people read our comments so they will not be fooled by the false advertising of this hell hole. Closet doors were ripped out of their tracks, place smelled of smoke, TV and stove did not work. We had no towels and place was very run down and old. The manager was rude and non cooperative and hung up on us when we complained about the bait and switch. We paid far more then we should have for this sub standard room for 2 nights. Please people reading this DO NOT BOOK here. Brian and Kimberly
Overall a nice stay. Rooms were small but clean. Jacuzzi brand tub, cable TV and DVD in the room. Breakfast was made everyday - always good and different. Bikes and canoes were available with easy access to the Chena river. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not a chain hotel. I would stay there again.
This was my first "Inn" experience and I loved it. As soon as I walked in it felt like a home. Completely different from a hotel, the staff is nice and offer a great breakfast. The Inn has a very European feel, and takes you to a different place than Fairbanks :)
From all the advertisements, I assumed this "inn" to be a real inn and not somebody's home with a bunch of rooms for rent. Because it really just is somebody's home! I totally did not expect that and I was not keen on that. They didn't even have any forms for me to sign that I even showed up and just wrote post it notes on the "room" I was supposed to stay in. If people like that and expect it, it's okay, but this can not be called an "inn." Maybe classify as a bed and breakfast at least! So the establishment was pretty okay, but just not what I wanted out of it.
I found the single light in the bathroom to be inadequate. The number of stairs to get in and out of our room were excessive, we are older adults.
THE 7 GABLES INN WAS MORE THAN I EXPECTED. WE WERE WARMLY WELCOMED AND TREATED LIKE KINGS. THANKS TO THE 7 GABLES INN AND THEIR SUPERB ACCOMMADATIONS, MY ROMANTIC WEEKEND GETAWAY WAS A GREAT SUCCESS, WITH JACUZZI AND FIREPLACE AND ALL WITH A BARGAIN PRICE.
