Being in Coldfoot was fun, if only for the many people coming and going. The Slate Creek Inn is nothing special, but I don't think people come here to sit in their room. The rooms are small, but there's a bathroom & shower, and a bed. I didn't need more than that. Interesting is that there's a faux bar, designed as a set for "Ice Road Truckers". The common room was also nothing special, but comfortable enough. I stayed here as the last part of a tour, having been to Barrow & Pruhoe Bay.
The Coldfoot Camp area has a restaurant, a buffet that was always running out of things, but food was tasty. There's also a post office, gift shop, and a National Park Visitor's center. The ambiance was pleasant, and I enjoyed my brief stay very much. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Coldfoot is sort of a stepping off place for campers, hikers and the like; very close proximity to Gates of the Arctic Nat'l Park, and close to Wiseman, AK, which is worth a look.
