“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Enjoyed our stay, nice convenient location that is easy to get to and out of. The rooms/lobby were kept very clean. This hotel has been remodeled, the pool was not open though. There were good breakfast choices, scrambled eggs, waffles, gravy, biscuits, cereal, muffins, etc. Would like to have seen more fruit. Staff was extremely nice and helpful.

We stayed for 1 night after flying in and before heading down to Denali. Best part about staying here is taxi cabs are complimentary to/from the airport/railroad. Complimentary breakfast was decent. Location is not near anything... Though only a 5 min ride to the rail road. Staff is very nice and clean rooms. The showers need a liner so the water doesn't go everywhere in the bathroom. Overall ok, just don't expect much from Fairbanks!

Spent 5 days in July, perfect location we were so close to places on our list, Discover Cruise, Dredge 8, North Pole, Aurora ice museum, Pioneer Park-excellent salmon bake, Denali National Park was a 2 hr drive but nice. Make sure to try some of the local eating places for your different meats, the chain restaurants do not serve buffalo, reindeer or elk. You will get Reindeer sausage for breakfast at the hotel (delicious). We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel and Alaska.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This hotel was really inconsistent at meeting expectations. The front desk staff was awesome, especially Kia. The breakfast server was overwhelmed and couldn't keep up with demand, but there wasn't enough seating anyway. Housekeeping was horrible. During our stay, the sink was not cleaned between the time we checked in and the time we left 3 nights later. She left dirty breakfast dishes (because there was no place to sit) on the bedroom counter next to the TV when she "cleaned" our room. Other negatives are the pool which is closed indefinitely, and the horrible selection of TV channels. They claim to have 36 channels, however 8 of the 36 were unavailable from Dish for our entire 3-night stay (this includes ABC, NBC and CBS). Once the weather warmed up, we were also unable to keep the room adequately cool. We weren't able to determine whether the AC didn't work properly or not at all. On the plus side, the front desk staff were all GREAT. The location is good, and you couldn't ask for a place that was any quieter, while still being reasonably close to everything in town. The beds were comfortable, and the room was good-sized. I do recommend asking for a room away from the elevator, because we kept hearing occasional thumping day and night that I finally figured out was most likely related to the elevator mechanism (this was the only contradiction to the previous "quiet" statement).

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevators. Random thumping noises occur.

While the hotel is couple of miles away from the downtown, the quality of the staff makes up for the stay at this hotel. The staff was helpful to provide all support required to see the town and move around. Any minor complaints were immediately resolved and more importantly they were empathetical to the situation. Great staff that makes this place worth the stay.

Very nice, updated Best Western under new management. Clean and professional staff. Breakfast had eggs/ham and potatoes, as well as usual fare. Only downside was pool was being renovated, but knew this in advance. Laundry was a bit pricy ($3 load) but at least it was available. Hotel isn't within walking distance of attractions but is close drive to downtown etc. Located in a nice quiet business park.

We booked a room with this hotel mainly because it was close to various things we were going to see while in the Fairbanks area, but what made us choose this hotel was the indoor pool and hot breakfast. The pool was out of order (closed for renovations) during our 2 night stay and the hot breakfast area was disgusting, messy and left little to be desired. In addition to this, the cooling system in our room was barely functional. We had it set to the highest cold setting and our room never got "cool", despite having the heavy curtains fully drawn for our entire stay to block out the sun. We will not return to this hotel.
