I've been working in and out of Fairbanks for the last two years and finally stayed at this BW+ the key being the PLUS. Checked in in under 3 minutes - room was very clean and well appointed which leads me back to the PLUS part. This is not your average BW so if your on business this is the...

We booked into this motel as an overnight stay while in route to Denali and now wish I could have take it (the motel) with us as we travel! This is one of the nicest motels we have booked, and considering the cost per night compared to others, makes it a better deal. Rooms are large and very clean, staff...

We arrived a little before check-in time and the wonderful young lady at the front desk made sure that the housekeeping staff worked on our room right away to get us in as soon as possible. She couldn't have been nicer or friendlier. Our room was excellent with really comfortable beds. We had a very early morning departure and again,...

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel. Nice decor. The room was a decent size and clean. It was easy to get around Fairbanks from the hotel location. The only downside is that the breakfast area is a bit small so it can get crowded.

This building sits right in the landing pathway for the airport. Sometimes the planes just clear the roof. The color scheme of the walls and hallways is dull. Not conducive to being rid of depression in the winter time. There breakfast area is totally inadequate. Not enough seating. The elevator hand rail came off and was not fixed within the...

I went there after I had just finished driving up the AlCan from the lower 48. I went in with my dog, something Ihave done at every hotel I have stopped at from Florida to the upper Yukon. This was the first hotel to rudely inform me that they did not and never will accept pets. I turned around and...

WE traveled to Fairbanks as base to go on a raft trip with my 90 year old uncle on the Kongakut River with Arctic Wild Outfitters. This hotel is close to the airport, our outfitter, shopping at Fred Myer and Safeway, and close to great Fairbanks restaurants including Chena Alaska Grill and Chena Pump House. A block away is Brewsters...

This is a very nice facility. It is well kept up and the breakfast is great. Our room had a refrigerator and there were plenty of towels. We were able to walk to Fred Meyers grocery. Bella and Krista at the front desk were very helpful.

We stayed here for 3 nights a few days ago and found the hotel and its staff very good. The hotel is only 5 years old so is quite modern, all the fittings were in good condition and the staff were polite and courteous at all times. The only complaint I would have is that they do a complimentary breakfast...

Stayed here for a week for both business and a mini vacation. Great location (close to airport and U of Alaska Fairbanks) as well as a drug store and Fred Meyers (grocery & everything else) nearby. Alaska is expensive so it's nice to save, by getting your own drinks or food/snacks. Clean, comfy, and a knowledgeable staff make it a...
