Very good shuttle, breakfast, rooms and service. Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. This is my hotel of choice when I come to Fairbanks. My biggest complaint is that they sometimes don't have vacancy.

I stay at a lot of HIEs and this one was a better one. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and large. Rooms had microwaves, K-cup coffee makers, and refrigerators. Breakfast was usual HIE fare but room was clean and pleasant. Close to shopping center and restaurants.

The personnel have made our stay here so very pleasant. We had difficulty getting a rental car the evening we arrived.

Shuttle from airport and then next morning to train was welcoming experience for grandson and I as we began first visit to Alaska. Front desk clerk excellent, directed us to shopping (across parking lot) and then assisted us in choosing museums and summonsed taxi. Facility and breakfast were fine, as expected, reflecting frequent previous Holiday Inn visits.

I like choosing Holiday Inn Express because I know what to expect, no matter the location. This location is no exception. The rooms are nice.

Rooms are old and worn, not in keeping with the price of staying there. Staff were charmingly casual, with an emphasis on the "casual". Breakfast was really disappointing. Scrambled eggs were usually cold. (We soon learned to take some up to our room and use the microwave. Much tastier!) "Juices" were very sugary fruit drinks. The pancake machine was out... More

Hotel made good on promise of screened window to outside, no fragrances, no new carpet or new paint. Rooms were good, but initially we were on ground floor on freeway side. Next day Anthony moved us to similar room on 3rd floor away from freeway where we spent the rest of our stay.
