“Room not ready”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Arrived to find that the heater / ac unit was broken - they must have known! Eventually given another room but the whole process took far too long. Dinner was so/so but my wife's meal was too not hot enough and had to be sent back - no excuse for serving warm food. Breakfast the next day was very good and reasonable value.

We enjoyed our stay. Nothing fancy but no problems either. We would definitely go back! Food was expensive! Location was not great but since we were on a tour transportation was provided for us. Our room was on the 2nd floor front part of lodge so very convenient to everything. Friendly service.

We were provided a nice rustic room for our honeymoon we believe, but the other couples in our group had average rooms. It had a nice dining room with a great breakfast buffet as well as a restaurant on the back deck overlooking the river. Not much is around there, but it's a nice place to base yourself for excursions. Very close to the airport.

We stayed at a cabin, not first row by the river, but just behind. The room and bath were very clean, and comfortable. Front desk clercs friendly and helpful regarding local information.
We spend the 4th of July week end here, with great weather, so enjoyed the out doors and terrace dining. It is very reasonably priced also. Would definitly recommend it.

Room Tip: River front are the nicest.

We stayed at this lodge as part of a Princess Cruise Tour. We arrived here after staying in 3 other lodges in much prettier parts of Alaska; so the surrounding just weren't that pretty in comparison to the other places. If we had started in Fairbanks, we would have been more impressed with it. The room was a size modern and clean room with a comfortable bed. The only negative to the room was that it was at the end of a very long hallway. The layout of the hotel is such that it is not easy to find your way around and it can be quite confusing. We only ate one breakfast there, since it was not good. My wife's pancakes were cold as was my oatmeal. Our friends ate dinner there one night and said it was terrible.

ON the plus side, we were able to do the airport check-in and check our luggage right at the hotel, so we were able to tour the Fairbanks area all day and not worry about our luggage. A real plus.

Stayed here as part of a tour. Nice rooms. Just ordinary. Could use more easily accessible outlets. Clean. Nice front desk person (Jack) who gave good advice. Very friendly. Close to airport. We went in town on shuttle. Should have stayed at hotel to enjoyed the river. Sketchy downtown. Drunks and addicts on street. Almost hit by drugged drivers who caused a bad power outage by hitting pole. Breakfast buffet was good but pricey.

Seems we were not alone in thinking this was the best of our 3 Princess lodge stops in Alaska. We had 2 nights here before heading home. Room was comfortable and relatively clean. We ate on the decking area both evenings and really enjoyed the food. Service was a little slow as it was very busy and staff were new (early season visit) but sitting in the sun, taking in the beautiful setting and chatting with new friends passed the time perfectly. The lobby area was pleasant although we didn't spend much time there; the walk in the grounds could have done to be longer.
Overall, a pleasant end to our 3 week visit to Canada and Alaska.
