We had a great time in Fairbanks, the hotel is nice, older though, but clean and cozy. Some days can be crowded for breakfast so don't just assume that you'll have enough time if you show up 15 minutes before the end of breakfast time. We've been there during the winter, we had no problems with hot ...
We stayed at the Regency for one night before heading back home. The room was spacious, quiet, and well appointed. We arrived later in the evening. The reserved room was warm and clean. The staff was friendly and quite efficient. The breakfast was good and checkout was a snap.
This hotel was a very nice hotel. Easy access and friendly staff. Our only complaint would be that the room was too warm. We completely turned off the heater and were unable to open the window for fresh air.
I stayed just one night. At the time I was suffering from back pain. I asked reception if there was a trolley that I could use to move my two heavy bags to my new home that was in clear view from the front of the reception building. I did not think that this would be a major problem. Reception staff ...
Close to everything, very clean and safe feeling. Only some in early enough for breakfast once but was good. Easy parking with car plugins handy. Full size hairdryer in every room was added bonus. If I ever find myself back in Alaska I would purposely rebook here.
Large room - looked like it was recently remodeled. Quiet and spacious, with separate living/kitchenette area and ceiling fan. By far the nicest room we stayed in during our recent trip. Lots of cruise passengers checking in and out, creating some congestion of people and luggage in the lobby and ...
We have stayed here several times before but have never stayed in the cabins close to the road.Being an Alaskan that enjoys the quite all the other cottages we stayed in when quite and comfortable, but this time we were placed in a cabin close to the road and the road noise was a bit much. Would ...
Like this hotel. Very nice hotel staff and very clean cozy room. perfect location for viewing the Aurora because it is far away from the city. Winter time road to get here is very slippery , need AWD.
This hotel is the place to stay for conducting business at Eielson AFB. It is much closer to the base than the hotels in Fairbanks. The facility and the rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was very nice. The location was quiet and next door to Safeway and Pagoda Restaurant (The best Chinese food in the Fairbanks area).
I am trying to eat healthily and save money while on vacation. Sophie Station met all of my need. The rooms came with a kitchen that had dishes, silverware, cookware, and appliances like a water heater, a microwave, a toaster, etc.
I've been going to Chena Hot Springs since 1972 and have been witness to many changes, but I'm happy to say for the most part, it never changes and is always a fun adventure. It was my friends first visit and she was delighted! I must say we were both disappointed that we could not tour the Ice Hotel, or even go in for a drink. It seems the tours are done 'when enough people sign up and pay the tour fee' and as we had a schedule we could not hang around waiting for 'enough people to sign up' and the bar inside the Ice Hotel is only open when there is a tour. Other than that, we enjoyed the Rock Lake and also got to see the northern lights - which made our visit totally worthwhile. I might add there is no notice when you check-in that you can request to be called at any hour if the northern lights appear - I spoke with several people who were totally unaware and very disappointed that at 1:30am they did not get a call that the lights were appearing - all in all, we had a fabulous time and will return.
