winter is the time for the aurora borealis, so you won't see them in June. Contact the hotel directly for you shuttle question. The hotel is about 5 minutes away from the Fairbanks airport but the hotel may not run the shuttle at all hours.

Which color bus route is closest to your location? Thanks.
Sorry for the delayed response. Haven't been on the website in awhile. We went to the Bowl Company. It is not within walking distance but a five-ten minute drive.

"If you want quiet, stay away from the main lobby. It's pretty lively. The cabins are quiet."
"close to airport"
"In winter months, it does not matter whether you are riverside; but in summer months the riverview is gorgeous."
"we overlooked the parking lot- so no view, but rooms across the hall overlooked the river"
"Ask for a room with a view of the Chena River."
