“Clean and Cozy”
Reviewed 30 August 2006

Clean cozy hotel. Front desk very friendly. Hotel was nothing special - Furnishings are showing their age, no real services - but overall a clean safe cozy hotel close to downtown fairbanks. We had 2 queens which worked perfectly for 2 adults and 2 kids - also lots of floor & storage space. Bathroom was tiny but overall room was fine.

  • Liked — Spacious Room
  • Disliked — billed as European Charm - felt like 80's apt. building redo
  • Tips/Secrets — fine hotel - just nothing special
  • Stayed August 2006, travelled with family

We stayed one night at the Bridgewater on June 19, 2006. The room was quite small and difficult to manuever in, but it was clean and decently decorated. The bed was comfortable. The shower was extremely small, and my 6-foot-2 husband could barely wash himself in it. The breakfast buffet was excellent (eggs, meat, blintzes, biscuits & gravy, etc.) and cost $11 per person. The hotel is next to the river--be sure to take a pleasant walk along the waterfront.

Very surprized with the hospitality and friendliness of the Bridgewater Hotel in Fairbanks. Greeted with homemade cookies and punch in lobby. Free internet service. Great value breakfast in morning. Everyone attentive, happy and informative there. For a structure as old as this one, it is well maintained and clean. Real homey attmosphere. It is non-smoking hotel but just outside lobby is a nice flower garden area for smokers. Quite pleasant to just sit out there and chill out too. It is within walking distance of parks, visitor center, downtown area and landmarks. Near variety of restaurants within walking distance also, Italian, Steak, BBQ, Thai, Chinese etc. Price is right and a family atmosphere made this a very pleasant stay.

My husband and I just spent 9 days at the Bridgewater Hotel. The location is excellent. There are several fine restaurants located within walking distance. The Chena River can be viewed from the hotel. The Alaska Railroad is minutes away. The service was great. They have a fine breakfast buffet. We recommend this hotel.
