The place is getting a little tired looking but no functional problems at all. The price was reasonable for the area and the room was clean with everything I needed. Both desk clerks I dealt with were friendly and helpful.

I agree with some other reviews that the place is in need of some refurbishment. However, we were lucky to get anywhere as we arrived in the height of the season. The room was not luxurious but clean, comfortable and what we needed. The reason I recommend this motel is for the great service by helpful and friendly owners. We...

There was some struggle for us to find a hotel relatively last minute during high travel season for Alaska. We booked this hotel, but had no idea what to expect with the mediocre reviews. I didn't know what to expect as we arrived at the hotel even. We got the keys and checked the place out... simple, clean, and safe,...

There's nothing special about this building, it's just a motel. But we really received friendly and helpful service from the front desk, which made it quite pleasant. It's also conveniently located near the airport, supermarkets, and some good places to eat (ask the front desk for recommendations). The room was clean, no complaints. I'd stay here again because it's inexpensive...

Price was right, staff was helpful and the room had a living room with couch, small fridge and microwave. The rooms need to be updated; peeling paint and the shower needs to be cleaned. Coffee and donuts in the lobby. Very close to airport but I did not hear the planes.

The office has a funky odour, and the room was just as bad. The inside is just as bad as the outside, a dump. The walls are thin, noise all night long, small parking lot. This place is down the road from a recently boarded up strip club. Never again would I stay here!!

We stayed here because the price was right. Location was ok, just a quick walk to Fred Meyers & the bus stop. Staff was very friendly. Room was tiny and old but clean, which matters the most. No a/c which might be ok on the other side but we were on the side facing the sun and it was quite...

I was looking for cheap and I found it! The check-in was freaky and the appearance of the motel says to run away! In all fairness the room was not as bad as the appearance of the place from the outside. Still, pretty shabby. As a traveler wi-fi is important to me. I was told to log in to any...

I looked for a hotel near Fairbanks Airport, as my flight was arriving late at night and departing early in the morning. I also checked to see if there was a grocery store nearby. So I booked a room through Booking.com, thinking that it would be a better deal. But when I booked for extra days, I discovered that it...

The staff at the motel is very guest oriented. They try to accommodate each traveler's needs. Family owned and management you will most likely be remembered the next time you call or stop in. It's a great place to call home when you are visiting Fairbanks.

“There is a strip joint just down the road and the highway a block and a half away... not a good location. The room was very small but it was clean. The hotel desk people were friendly and helpful. The best rooms are on the other end away from the office.”
