“Convenient, Clean, Comfortable and a good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of this hotel given the price and the comparables in Alaska. Conveniently located near both airport and the Discovery Paddlewheel, its easy to get to if you are coming/going from the airport. They have a shuttle and if its not available will substitute a cab.
For us at least, it was also surprisingly quiet. Rooms are large, beds are good.
I did hear one customer complaining about lack of hot water. We did not have the problem so possibly a localized issue.
The breakfast is not bad for the price, but is like most hotel breakfasts, mostly carbs. Would have been nice if included.
Bottom line: I would return and stay again if in the area.

Our tour group bunked here for two nights. We found our room a good size with ample room to move around for two people plus suitcases. An added bonus was chocolate chip cookies, fresh flowers and an Alaska state flag in the flower vase too! The room was clean as well.

At our first night's dinner meal we were greeted with a lei and hula dance--not expected in Alaska!
Our meal was a buffet offering which was adequate. We also had a buffet at breakfast too which was good.

We stayed for one night to be close to the Discovery Riverboat attraction. The hotel is quite new and the rooms are spacious and clean. It's just that accessories made you feel like you were in a Motel Six - little towels, tiny soap, etc. The continental breakfast was a $5 option - not a big deal except that for the price we paid for the room it should have been included. The staffing seemed short-handed as well.

The hotel looks exactly like a Best Western Plus, with the exact same setup, however, the service was terrible. They are not knowledgeable (despite their great location). We went for breakfast an hour and a half before it ends and there was nothing. When we reported it, the rude receptionist said that it is just too bad, they had a big tour group staying over. So WHAT!!!?? The place is not well run and dirty. What a shame, a lot of potential.

Thank you for your informative review this helps us see where more training is needed. We pride ourselves in hiring locals who have been in Fairbanks for many years, so “not knowledgeable “comes as a surprise and is being looked into more. Sometimes the breakfast items get eaten faster than we can refill them, but our staff should always be polite in responding to guest. Thank you again for your comments; they are our best source for making improvements.

There is no such thing as a cheap hotel room in Alaska. This place, however, was great. Make sure you have a reservation, as it fills up quickly, especially during tourist season. I liked the Alpine Lodge because it was in a great location (near Fairbanks airport and the freeway to Denali and Anchorage) and was very clean with modern bathrooms and sleeping areas. Acceptable Wi-Fi signal was appreciated. The customer service was ok, something that the hotel could work on with their employees. The continental breakfast was $5.00 per person and had good coffee, waffles and eggs plus bagels and muffins. The lobby was a comfortable place to visit with local family members.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from Old Airport Road.

Stayed 3 nights. Friendly staff and nice clean room, near the airport. Wi-Fi connection with reasonable speed. The complimentary continental breakfast is OK. The hotel is a bit impersonal but it is a good base for exploring Fairbanks. The “Finish Line Restaurant” is OK for a burger meal, but if you want something more we recommend you to walk or drive the 0.5 mile to Pikes Waterfront Lodge.

We lived here for 2 nights and were very impressed with the service. I think the reviews don't do justice to this place. We had booked for 3 nights, but thanks to united we got delayed and reached there a day later. Despite being late, they kept our reservation and charged only for two nights when they got to know the reason for the delay. I think that was very commendable. Also, instead of making us wait for the shuttle at the airport, they asked us to get an eagle cab which they paid for. They also took care of the cab next day to a tour company. They have an ATM in the building and also a decent breakfast service. As mentioned in some of the other reviews, they were little more casual than I would like.Room was clean, tidy and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place.
