Where to stay?

Hi! We are making a trip to Fairbanks to help find an apartment for an army wife. Can someone suggest somewhere affordable to stay?

Thanks,

When are you coming? How long will you be staying in a hotel? Amenities? If you could tell us a bit more, we could better help you. :)

We will be coming for a week sometime between June 4-17. We don't care about amenities since we will be using it just to sleep. We would prefer to be closer to Wainwright Army Base, but will have a vehicle. We want something as cheap as possible and clean.

Thanks,

I did a bit of searching on the web and while it isn't the closest to the base, Alpine lodge had the cheapest rate of $144 a night, which also includes a complimentary breakfast. Hampton Inn was $175 for the same period. Hotwire featured a 1 star hotel for $132. You might contact some of the local B&B's - see if you could get a long term rate for that length of time. Good luck! :)

Thank you all! Does anyone have any suggestions on some decent B & Bs? How far is Denali? We might be interested in taking a couple of side trips as time allows.

Thanks,

Here is a site that lists quite a few:

The only place I have heard negative things about is 7 Gables.

You didn't mention if you were also military - these guys offer a military rate:

Denali is about 2 hours south of Fairbanks - www.nps.gov/dena for more info there - also lots of info if you look here on the forum under Denali Park. :)

I wouldn't limit yourself to something particularly close to Ft. WW. It's easy to get across town and only takes about 15 minutes.

Thank you! I have looked at the maps and it did not look very big, but wasn't quite sure.
