Wonderful staff

Posted Aug 23, 2012
Pros: Definitely the warm, helpful staff
Cons: Room size... Only buffet breakfast . .. Not anything special.
Location: Downtown location along river.... Close to cultural center and market on River Monday 4-8. Trolley takes you to other locations.
Upon our arrival at airport until the day we left, the staff was outstanding ... Very friendly and helpful! We arrived 2 nights early for a land/cruise trip. Room was very, very, tiny and shower barely fit one person The outdoor area was adorned with beautiful flower boxes. Location was good for walking although there is only about a six block area to visit. Hotel faces river.

Good value hotel way downtown

Posted Jul 23, 2012
An older style hotel, way downtown but good value for money. Booked a 'Triple Room' for my husband, son and I and was surprised to see a single bed in the room - built for three! A little unexpected, but it worked out fine.

Nice small hotel in Fairbanks, good for price.

Posted Jun 27, 2012
Pros: The outside, nice flowers. Room clean.
Cons: Small shower and no breakfast included.
Location: Good location down town Fairbanks.
This is a nice little hotel in Fairbanks, not a 5 stars but good for the price. It is nicely located, the room are clean but small. Bathroom also small with tiny shower. The outside of the hotel is very well maintain with a lot of nice flower in the summer. Their is no breakfast included, their is a restaurant on location but very expensive so we did not eat their.

We would stay here again, definitely.

Pros: Free shuttle, free wi-fi
Cons: The beds were only OK. Not bad, just not great. I had no problem, but the other guy, who needs a good bed and mattress, wasn't so happy.
Location: Handy location, right across the street from the riverfront
This hotel is not deluxe or fancy, it's utilitarian. Nothing was shabby or worn or broken -- it seems to be well taken care of -- but it's what you might expect from an economical hotel in an otherwise expensive area. The wi-fi was easily accessed in the room, and free. The window was large and it opened nicely for fresh air. The curtains were heavy enough to keep out the light during the night which never got dark (it was that time of year). Oh, and they had a free shuttle that picked us up from the airport and then took us to the train station the next morning. That's a good deal.

Location, location, location!

Posted May 25, 2012
Pros: Location and really friendly front desk staff.
Cons: The bathroom! The shower head would only pour water on top of my head and couldn't adjust enough to get a good shower, and there was no vent fan.
Location: Beautiful! The view couldn't be better! A bit hard to get into the parking lot -- all one ways!
This hotel has an excellent location and great staff, but the rooms are basic and the bathrooms need vent fans. The room heat is also hard to regulate. This is the best place to stay is you want to be downtown in Fairbanks and not pay a fortune for it.

Really liked the hotel

Posted Oct 11, 2011
The staff was very friendly, the room was spaceous, clean and nice, the breakfast was delicious. In addition, the hotel is really nicely decorated and also looks lovely from outside.

The most reasonably priced Fairbanks hotel (during the summer)

Posted Sep 28, 2011
The Bridgewater is open only during the summer. It is an older facility, but well maintained and very reasonably priced. It is part of an Alaska-owned three hotel group in Fairbanks. There is a free shuttle from the airport and another free bus that provides transportation to a limited number of attractions/shopping areas. Both will save you a considerable amount of money! The Bridgewater is located downtown and is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. They have a breakfast brunch and it is about the only thing available downtown on Sunday mornings. It is located between two highly recommended restaurants for lunch and dinner. The bus station and post office are within four blocks. The Riverwalk starts just across the street - I really like the Bridgewater for all of these reasons, but you will find that the staff is exceptional. They really go out of their way to help in any way possible!

OK lodging by AK standards but...no freshly baked cookie on way guest room as described in intro.

Posted Aug 8, 2011
Acceptable hotel at a premium price, but not a good value. Ceiling of laundry/microwave room leaking any time guest above takes a shower a leaves shower curtain outside stall. Complimentary WiFI works great. Complimentary shuttle from railroad station works well. Complimentary shuttle around Fairbanks is available only in mid afternoon and evening. No service in the morning and early afternoon. A bummer. Breakfast is pricey and not included. Hotel is dated and in need of some renovation. Black out blinds in the time of the midnight sun would have been nice. Cable TV works fine. Microwave available in laundry room. Housekeeping does not respond to requests to make up room before 4 PM, making it difficult to work in room. Some front desk people difficult...but not all. Tabitha was a gem at the front desk.

Nice Hotel

Posted Sep 27, 2010
This conveniently located hotel, with Old World charm, was very pleasant. All of the staff seemed very eager to please. The hotel interior was very clean, and the exterior displayed beautiful flowers.
