This hotel is a pleasant surprise for us! We had a river view room on the third floor at a reasonable price. The river view is so beautiful from our room or from the back of the hotel if you sit outside. The room is very comfortable. The location of the hotel is very convenient too, only a few minutes...

Our stay included a king size bed in a pet friendly room which was very clean and smelled pleasent despite being a pet friendly room. The tiny deck outside was nice and the yard area for dogs to potty was right outside the back doors and potty bags were provided. It was very clean.

Everything was great, just as promoted. Hotel was nice and quiet for the holiday and the next door restaurant was jammed because of the buffet. Probably couldn't get into the restaurant with out a reservation.

I was slightly worried from some photos that the hotel would be outdated but turned out everything was super modern but with an old school style and great sense of humor! It was clean, all the staff were super friendly and we got to see the northern lights!

After traveling for 24 hours I needed a place to stay for the night. Pike's was clean, cozy and comfortable. There was a great breakfast the next morning. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended for your stay in Fairbanks!

I spent the night at Pike's to pick up a family member from the nearby airport early in the morning rather than attempting to drive into Fairbanks in the dark on a snowy road. The rate was good. I loved the ice cream, the gift shop, my clean room and the chance to bring in my two Scotties. The art... More
