The hotel was in need of an update; the fitness center had equipment that needed attention. HOWEVER, this was a clean, convenient, entry to our Alaska, and a good place to begin the adventure to Denali. It's only minutes from the airport, and a nice resting place after a long flight. There is a good deck to have a BLT...

The accommodations were just ok. The bathroom had someone else's hair on the outside and inside of the tub and dirt and hair were in the corners of the bathroom floor. The carpet was worn, but the bed was comfortable. The bar and grill served very good dinner and the servers were very friendly. The breakfast buffet had two options,...

We stayed here for two nights before our Princess connoisseur cruise tour started, and then two nights as a part of the tour. This is really a hotel--not a lodge at all. If you know that going in, as we did, it is fine. The room we had overlooked the river which was nice. Our weather there was not good...

Alaska was high on my mom's bucket list and after hearing her say yet again for the upteenth time, 'someday, I'll go there' I made travel plans and told her to either 'put up or shut up.' That took the wind out of her sails and a year later we found ourselves at the Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge. After having...

The worst of the 3 Princess Lodges we stayed in. The hotel is at best a Fairfield Inn in feel and the decore in our room was definitely not the one pictured on the website. The restaurants are good but it is a bit pricey and there is NOTHING around this "lodge". The shuttle to town is OK bbut they...

This was our first experience of a princess lodge and we were pleased the rooms were compact but functional. There was a great deck outside overlooking the river and a pleasant place to eat breakfast or have a drink. The staff were friendly and helpful. You can ask to be put on their call list for the northern lights and...

This is in close proximity to many things in Fairbanks. It could use some updating to the actual rooms in decor - plus no mini fridge, microwave etc. - very basic, but clean. Lobby area very nice. There are little walking paths to a nearby restaurant area at the river. There are nice paths in general surrounding the lodge area.

The beginning of our 13 day Princess Cruise trip. Nice views of the Chena River from out back. Food cost on the high side for breakfast buffet and plate orders.. Bar menu was limited and priced a little high. Did have shuttles for a cost to run to downtown Fairbanks.

Of the three Princess Lodges, this one has the nicest rooms. Quiet rooms and modern. Restaurants and bars are pretty good. Again, about the same as other Princess lodges. Unlike other hotels In the area, it does not have a shuttle that goes to the various attractions. Just a shuttle every half hour to Fairbanks, and you must pay for...

Our room was average with good views looking at the Chena River. The lobby was large and comfortable. The hotel location was good for our tours Discovery Riverboat and gold dredge 8, and close to the Fairbanks airport. The buffet breakfast and special fair well dinner were very good. The only negative was that our room have (2) double beds...
