We were in Fairbanks for the Solstice Festival and the location could not have been more convenient without being in the festival space. The parking lot was small, but no problem finding a spot coming and going. Easy drive to the airport or from the highway from Denali; we managed to get confused, but called the reservation number and got quick directions that put us back on the path. The room was basic but adequate, clean, and quiet, except for a festival event, blackout curtains, except for the part of the window with the air conditioner and it had its own blind that helped but did not keep out the sun, which may not be an issue if you're not there late June. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful with downtown information. There was a battle of the bands across the river as part of the festival and the front desk had ear plugs, but the air conditioner fan masked the sound. We used the shuttle to visit the University museum - couldn't be easier. There is a nice path along the river that goes to (and beyond) the visitors center, so walking there or to downtown restaurants is easy. Too bad they could not rotate the building 90 degrees to give river views from the upper stories. Stay there again? If I wanted to be downtown, definitely.
