Very basic accommodation. Twin beds for a couple which isn't ideal but no real problem. Nice and warm rooms. Could see the Aurora from our room. Good sized rooms. Staff very friendly. Late check out. Shared tv room at the front.
We took an unexpected trip to Alaska, beginning January 11, 2017. Very little notice to do planning and make reservations. We were apprehensive about traveling there in the dead of winter, but now we would do it again in a heartbeat!
I postponed making our...More
We were not expecting luxury just glad we had a private bathroom. Rooms clean, One side of building is too warm other is great. Reason is pipes would freeze if lower thermostat. You are out in the middle of nowhere so just be glad you...More
Anyone who gets to Coldfoot must expect something average as it is not anything above 2 star. The rooms are very expensive for what you get but they are so comfortable when the outside temp is zero F (-18 C) or much colder. The rooms...More
I am planning to be in Coldfoot 3rd week of March, 2015. Please tell me what kind of clothes to bring. I have been to Colorado numerous times in the winter but the coldest it ever was was -3. I know it will be much colder in Coldfoot so it would be so helpful if you could provide me with clothing info. I am female and traveling with husband, my brother and his wife. We will be there for 2 days, fairbanks for 2 day and Bettles Inn for 2 days. Thanks again!!

I drove through there in early June on a motorcycle. The weather was wonderful: warm, bright sun, and beautiful. It is note worthy to know that weather can change in a "heartbeat." The next day it had turned bitterly cold (in the 20sF) on the North Slope to Deadhorse. Even in June, there had been a avalanche in Atigun Pass that blocked the road for a day. Giving a clue of the bitterly cold winters in Coldfoot, the worker's camp (motel) have triple double pane windows. I would suggest bringing every layer of clothes you have, and then be pleasantly surprised if you don't need them. I would guess the temps will still be below freezing if not below zero(F). Good luck! Even if the gas gage is still above one half, fill up the car every chance you get! And remember there is a reason the town is called "Coldfoot." LOL Oh, yes. I suggest you carry a satellite phone. They can be rented. Hope this is helpful.
