Near UAF and Shopping! Was great for home base while we visited family and took care of business. Front staff was helpful and nice. Breakfast was fine - lots to choose from. Nice area down hall to sit and ready or study.

As a rural Alaska resident this is my go to Hotel when I travel to Fairbanks. Good location. Helpful staff. Very Clean. Good breakfast included. Very comfortable beds. The sink is separate from the shower & toilet which makes it more efficient for us.

Bella and Tyler were super informative! They helped us so much without hesitation! And so sweet. I lost count of questions and info I inquired about. Very patient! So willing to share their state with two Mississippi girls! Thank you and if we return it...More

I visited these areas and only had a 2WD car without any problems. Santa Claus house is closed until May 1st. Chena hot springs, bring your own towel, they changed $5, per towel.

Hello SabinaJan, Yes the Northern Lights are visible from the Hotel but also a short walk towards the river will get you a better view.

I don´t think so. They barely have wi-fi (it´s pay to use). But then again, that´s part of the experience of being in the wilderness. Just my two cents.
