“Cringed at the price, but best hotel room we ever stayed in”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

I'll start off saying I am cheap to a point, but we always are careful of the location and hotels we do pick out to stay in. I consider us the Comfort Inn types and in the lower 48 you can usually get one of their rooms for less than a hundred.

I only stayed at a Hampton Inn once before and was truly disgusted. In my AAA book it said the last Hampton Inn ( back east) was $79-$119. Maybe it was a misprint, but after a half hour of checking by the manager he gave us a room for $119. It was really tiny with no refrig or microwave. All our friends rave about Hampton Inns so because I really had a difficult time trying to get a room (called almost 3 weeks ahead of dates needed) in Fairbanks (tried Princess, Pikes Lodge, and Marriot first) I called them and secured 3 nights. Only problem was that the only thing they had available was a king suite at a very hefty price.....$235 a night .....wow for my pocketbook!!!

We absolutely loved the room. It was very large. Had a counter, sink, refrig and microwave as you walked in the door. A desk and couch were close by. They could have repositioned the silk plant as it was a little difficult to walk between it and the desk, but that was no biggie. Had a great closet, wonderful TV and nice bathroom.

Saw that several people said the breakfast was okay. I thought it was great! They did switch around some of the hot choices...one day it was omlette , sausage and potatoes, and another day, eggs with ham, sausage and biscuit, etc. They had a nice variety of sweet danishes, bread, bagels, fruit, cereal, and waffles. They have available all day and night hot coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. The pool and spa were great. The business center had two fast computers. Pat, one of the staff was extremely nice, and served cookies around 4:30. The girl who served the breakfast area asked all the time if we needed anything else, etc.

I was more than satisfied and now know why my friends rave about the Hampton Inn. Only wish I had the pocketbook to afford to stay there more often.

Agree with most other posters here that this Hampton is a great choice. Not downtown but as Fairbanks isn't a large city, you can get around town very easily & quickly from this spot.

We had a room on the opposite side of the bldg. from the expressway so it was very quiet and actually scenic overlooking a small glade across the street. Typical Hampton ammenities (the pool is nice) including a roomy, very clean room. What distinguishes this property from others is the staff - very engaged, conversational, always willing to help the guests to make sure their stay is enjoyable and meets expectations.

Hated to leave - hope the seagull down the street wasn't disturbed in her nesting by the curb. You can't go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: Room on side of bldg. by main entrance

Hampton Inn was very quiet and comfortable. The staff was very nice and willing to chat with you about anything. The breakfast was decent. The room was clean and nice and came with lots of towels. It had great internet service. The location is right across for the big box shopping (including Barnes and Noble) although you have to cross a big highway to get to it. The Hampton is on the same side of the road and right next to the McDonalds. The parking was also very nice.

Found the room to be very clean and comfortable. My room faced the expressway but was not too noisy [of course it was March, so my windows were closed]. I chose the Hampton because they were close to the Steese Highway, and I stayed at this hotel two nights; once before heading up the Steese to Cleary Summit, and once after coming back down.

On both occasions the rooms were just fine and different staff members were courteous and helpful. There was a variety of items for breakfast, coffee was available most any time, and I never had trouble with internet access in their computer room.

The shuttle driver, Erin, was especially helpful--on my first arrival at the Hampton, I discovered I had left my prescription eyeglasses on the train. She immediately offered to drive me back to the railroad station, and back again to the hotel. She was very friendly and concerned, and literally went the extra mile.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and would gladly stay there again.

Staff is courteous. Breakfast is middle of the road OK. Rooms are quiet, great work area, decent internet. HDTV. Bathroom is large. Had both a refrigerator and microwave in my room.

Try to get a room not along the expressway as it can be noisy from the trucks until about 10PM if your windows are open.
