“Convenient, great reception staff”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We spent four nights at the Alpine Lodge. It is close to the airport, had an Enterprise car rental office across the parking lot, and is located off Airport Road, which is the main drag to everything in Fairbanks. A restaurant/lounge is located in a separate building just behind the motel.
Our room was fine, large, with two queen beds. We had various little annoyances but the reception staff, especially Chase, was just terrific. Upon check in I found that the phone did not work - duh, someone had unplugged the jack from the wall... The second night the remote didn't work, the staff replaced the batteries. At least four times the electric key did not work but the staff was right there and got the door open each time. The staff paid for a taxi to the airport when their shuttle driver could not make our 6:30am departure.

The price was right - $298 for four nights.

Let's be clear: the Alpine Lodge is not a "destination resort." It's an airport motel. So the "four circles" means it does a very good job for an airport hotel.

We arrived in Fairbanks at 1 AM, which evidently is pretty typical. Once we had our luggage, we called the Alpine Lodge...

-- three minutes later their shuttle arrived

-- ten minutes later we had checked in

-- twenty minutes we were in bed, ready to capture as much sleep as we could from what remained of our night.

Twenty minutes from picking up our luggage off the carousel to putting our heads on the pillow. What more could you ask from an airport motel?

Service was consistently friendly and responsive. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable (or, were we just exhausted?). There are blackout curtains on the windows (not necessary in September but a big deal in June).

Whenever we fly into Fairbanks, we'll be staying here.

We got an $89 plus tax rate through Expedia. The "four circle" value rating reflects the fact that Alaska tends to be an expensive place.

Two tips:

(1) We passed on the $5 continental breakfast (which appeared adequate but we've seen better even in budget motels) and ate a hearty "skillet" breakfast at Family Restaurant, a couple of miles away on Airport Way.

(2) There is an Alamo/National rental car location just across the parking lot. If you reserve your rental car from that location, you avoid the considerable airport tax. Jennifer O'Neill is the Station Manager there and was very helpful.

We stayed only for one night here but really like the hotel. the front desk was really helpful when we check-in and arrange for taxi at their cost when their shuttle didn't work. The room was ok but not very spacious after we layout our luggage. There was a table, tv, mircrowave and free wifi in the room. The bed was really comfortable and there was 3 pillows given for each bed!

The breakfast provided was really nice. There was self-made waffle, bagel, bread, bacon, cereals, juices, coffee & tea, fruits provided.

My father and I stayed here in mid-August and were so very impressed with the high level of customer service. There was a mixup with the reservation dates (I'm sure it was my fault), but the front desk people were so very accommodating and found us a room at their partner hotel, the Regency. Then Sarah, the front desk manager, actually drove us there herself rather than having the shuttle driver take us. It was about a 20 minute ride! Then the next morning, they came and picked us up and brought us back to their hotel, where we were able to check into our room before 11 a.m., which these days, is pretty unusual. They also gave us a ride to and from the local Steamboat Discovery excursion, They really couldn't have been more friendly or gracious. We were highly impressed with the staff!

After our rail trip we booked another Hotel/ B and B. It turned out to be a dump. Phoned Alpine
and explained our problem. Alpine front desk was very helpful as they let us check-in at 9:00 am and even upgraded us to a suite at no extra cost. I can`t say enough good things about the hotel and staff.

The hotel is conveniently located near the airport, which was great after a long flight. Our room was ready when we arrived in the evening. Free shuttle service was provided to and from the airport and train station. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating, but appeared to be overwhelmed at times. The breakfast cost $5 and is worth the price. I really appreciated the laundry facilities since we prefer to pack light. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
