“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Room are nice clean and comfortable staff inclined not to be helpful. As long as you don't need anything allis well. We needed a dr. And the only advice was go to the hospital. We could not stay extra time without paying an extra day and maybe not even that. They would have to let us know tomorrow regardless how sick my husband was

As other reviewers have stated, this is just at most an average hotel. I expected more from Princess. The rooms are motel like, thin towels, tiny bathrooms, nothing but the bare necessities.

The lobby was a little better. The take out coffee counter in the gift shop was OK, but had very limited breakfast selections. The staff was friendly.

I had requested connecting rooms but they were unwilling to provide them.

My wife and I have always wanted to do an Alaskan cruise so we decided to do a week on land and then a week on a Princess cruise ship.

This Princess property is beautiful and located right on the river. There is a nice river walk (not very long) around the property and is a great way to connect with a little nature. It is close to the riverboat tour and also a little shopping mall (probably about 1-2 miles away).

The staff was very good and we enjoyed the food. We were only there for two nights but really enjoyed ourselves. Princess has everything so organized for the tours, etc and it is nice not to have to worry about anything.

What can I say? The hotel is across the street from the airport so it is convenient. It is on the river so it moderately gives you a bit of an Alaskan feel. The rooms are very average at best. The bathrooms are dated - has the 1980's feel of an Econo lodge. It is less than I would have expected given the price.

Room Tip: ask for a riverside room

Looked new from the outside. This lodge is least “Alaskan” of the 4 Princess lodges we stayed at. It is bright and cheery on the inside. The room was simple but clean. Larger, much larger than the Denali PL. New carpet, old and low light lamps. No overhead light in the main area of the room. Fairly small window, but did open up to a green area. At 10:30pm heard a helicopter land. Then a few minutes later a small plane taking off. But the window was open. When we closed the window it was quieter from the airport noises. But at 6am heard a jet engine taking off.

We didn’t hang around the hotel much. The sitting area was in front, by the parking lot and bus drop off area.

But after reading some of the reviews we expected a dirty motel on the side of the road, and it wasn't. It wasn't as scenic as other Princess lodges, but was ok for Fairbanks, our last stop on our tour. I would not have a problem staying here again.

We spent one night at the Princess Lodge at the end of our cruise/land tour. The hotel is very modern, clean and well laid out. The room was spacious and had all the amenities. Buffet breakfast was available for $15.99 and was filling. There is a shuttle into town available for $5 round trip. Since our plane didn't leave until late in the evening, the hotel desk stored our luggage for us, and allowed us to use the fitness center to change after our day on the golf course. We had a farewell beer and snacks on the spacious deck overlooking the river before departing. Our experience with Princess Cruises was excellent; it was extremely well organized, and all staff was very professional.
