Alpine Lodge Fairbanks Reviews
New & Near the Airport Jul 15, 2012
The hotel is in a great location for the traveler who has plans to rent a car. Easy to find upon your arrival, and has a shuttle, or will pay for your cab when you get to Fairbanks. It is a bit of a disadvantage if you are walking, or just plan a stroll downtown, as you are not located directly in the downtown area. Cabs are easy to come by though(but not cheap) and the bus stops directly at the driveway.
The rooms are new, clean and most of them have a kitchenette. Meaning there is a small sink, microwave, and some have a range also. The hotel does have a nice restaurant and lounge/bar, but the hours are a bit limited.
I lived in the hotel for 7 months last winter and will do so again this winter when I return there for work.
Important note: Almost ALL hotels will give you a monthly rate in the winter(October to May) that costs less than 4 days in the summer. Usual rates are $1,000/month for a basic room. $1,200 for a kitchenette. Breakfast is available every morning and coffee/tea available all day every day.
Check craigslist as most hotels will begin to advertise their winter rates in late September.
Over all it is a great hotel. The souvenir shop is your usual tourist trap. Expensive, but nice local items.
Any questions, hit me up.
