Large room, sink/vanity outside of bathroom. Tub and toilet in small area but ok. Water pressure ok but not too high. Good towels.
Even on the third floor there's a slight odor of cigarette smoke. Smoking rooms are on first floor. Hallway windows are screwed shut thus the odor stays trapped in carpeting. Put towel at the base of your door to keep stale stink of cancer sticks out.
Pool and hot tub are small and can get crowded quick if there are kids around. Open till midnight, kids out by 10:30pm.
Basic breakfast with the usual pastries, bagels and the like. Fresh baked goods but the fruits are mostly bruised up.
Choose a room on the third floor facing the north (left) side of the hotel if you like to sleep with the window open. The other side has the heat pump that comes at regular intervals.
Good place to stay with your dog. *$ a night extra. Walking path towards 1st Avenue that crosses a footbridge and follows the Chena river for a long while. The bridge comes out behind the Pioneer Park's back entrance.
Recommended, can be a little youth oriented on Friday night stays. You know, late teens partying in Fairbanks.
Staff very helpful and friendly. Overall the hotel and grounds are clean though not impeccable.
Great value for the money.
