The hotel is Clean, has polite staff, wonderful shower, close to shopping and downtown. Reasonable price. I Ended up having to make a last minute reservation for a canceled flight. This hotel made it a positive experience. Pool and spa area are nice sized.

The location is next to a shopping center which is very convenient. The staff here was very nice. Pascale was particularly helpful. She was very informative with things such as where to view the Northern Lights. She even offered to loan me a pair of her gloves if I needed some! She was very professional and made our stay very...

Spent the week at this hotel for business at FT Wainwright. I'm not sure if the property is new, but my room was very clean, nicely decorated, clean fridge, lots of room to work, great wifi, and the bathroom was spotless. Felt good to be here. The real treat comes in when I made an unusual request for the nice...

I know I have reviewed this place couple of times but I really love this hotel. My sister and I had terrible heartburn and couldn't get to sleep. We went down to the lobby where we met Ruby. She offered us antacids and gave us each a milk to help settle our stomachs. Thank you Ruby you made my night.

Checked in early after long day, hotel staff was cheerful and gave us extra blankets. Breakfast was hot and filling. Let us have late check out due to evening flight from airport. Wifi was strong in the rooms.

We stayed at the HIE for 2 weeks and although it wasn't perfect it was adequately comfortable. The room was clean and neat. Had a lot of room for our stuff as we were in the midst of moving. Breakfast was just okay and the pancake maker was a little faulty but we managed to make it work. Items changed...

Traveling with kids takes extra planning. Fairbanks hotels with pools are not ubiquitous. Imagine our dismay to get checked in and find the pool closed for repair. Something like this needs to be made note of when reservations are made so that alternatives can be found. Maybe that doesn't fall under "customer service" in their definition. Also less than Par...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. First, I'd like to apologize for falling short. It's common practice for us to post an alert to our website when our pool is closed, and unfortunately, this repair took us by surprise. I absolutely understand how this could be a huge disappointment when travelling with little ones. I'm...
