This is a convenient, easy to find location just a few minutes drive from downtown, the University of Alaska Fairbanks and numerous shops and cafes. Very nice entrance and professional front desk staff greet travelers. The rooms are very comfortable, nicely decorated, well lit and the height of the table is good for sitting to work on a laptop. Beds are very comfortable. Double insulation in windows was noted as a plus, should we stay here in mid-winter. That was impressive.
The internet connection was sporadic, but worked well enough for the limited time needed. Highly recommend that guests who want a good breakfast, served rom 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., get there early. The assortment of food, fruit juices and coffee was plentiful, but the hot dishes---the roasted potatoes and oatmeal in particular, were not appealing. The roasted potatoes, lying in separate container between bacon and scrambled eggs, were barely warm and clumped together, and what was left of the oatmeal was scary. Certainly can appreciate the hotel not wanting to throw out good food not eaten after 10 a.m. but fresh potatoes and oatmeal would have been nice. Dining area itself is very nice, right off of the lobby. Being long time Alaskans, we know value when we see it, and this hotel is a good deal overall. less
