The hotel it's self was nice. I like the attempts at being a little greener. Dispensers for the soap etc instead of little bottles, water conserving toilets. I liked the decor, wall mounted lighted make up mirror in the bathroom. But the room its self was not clean. The comforter had what looked like food on it, the heater had...

Stayed at the hotel for two nights. Clean and quiet rooms (despite the elevator just next to our door and the airport outside the hotel). The breakfast area is too small for the big number of rooms. Come earlier, get a spot to seat! The stay was OK!

Close to the airport. Great breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. Nice rooms. Good price. I had a couple of interactions with staff and the treatment I got felt very personal -- like the people who work there were the owners or something.

This was the absolute nicest and cleanest Best Western we have ever had a chance to stay at. The complimentary breakfast area was tended to and clean. The staff were very friendly and informative about the area. This hotel was within a few miles of the airport. Would definitely stay here again.

The staff at this hotel were most helpful and pleasant. The location is most convenient to get around town. We were able to check in a little early which made a big difference for us. The working staff acknowledged that we were there by just talking to us in the halls and around the building.. Have stayed here before and...

Whenever I visit Fairbanks, either for business or to visit my family, I always stay at this Best Western. The rooms are fairly clean (I'm very very picky though) and it's convenient to town, Fort Wainwright and UAF. I highly recommend staying here.
