We have stayed here three times in the past three years. We happened to stay this year during spring break. The hotel staff were very disappointing. They were clearly more interested in cleaning the rooms of the tour bus patrons than "regular" returning customers. We stayed five nights and had our trash emptied and bed made once during that time....

Very nice place to stay with easy access to highway that was needed to take us to many of the places we had planned to go to. On the day we arrived at the Alaska Railroad station the hotels van was not working and the hotel sent a taxi for us at no cost to us. Then we needed to...

This hotel has airport shuttle as mentioned on its website. we also confirmed it with the hotel 2 days before our trip. But after we landed Fairbanks, we have attempted 7 times in 20 mins to call the hotel for a pick-up but no one answered the phone. We had to spend $26 for a cab. When we got to...

Due to unforeseen circumstances, my one night stay lasted about a week. That stated, I have to acknowledge that the facilities and, most importantly, the staff, were great to interact with. From the young lady from Montana who cleaned the room through to the morning chef, with a bit of an Irish/Scottish accent, to the front desk staff, all were...

Decent place to spend the night. We were out most of the day. The best part of a Holiday Inn is the Breakfast. This one did not disappoint. They were slammed on Christmas day and so ran out of breakfast stuff and were slower replenishing it, but was not due to the staff not trying. The place was full!

Very clean and decent hotel. Nothing special about the hotel but quiet and convenient to Walmart, Barnes and Nobles, a few resturants. Fairbanks is a very small town about 5miles across. You can drive to anywhere within a five minutes.

Very good shuttle, breakfast, rooms and service. Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. This is my hotel of choice when I come to Fairbanks. My biggest complaint is that they sometimes don't have vacancy.
