“BEST VALUE AND SERVICE in Fairbanks”
Convenient to local bus (Blue Line and Red Line) stops in front of Super 8 with short rides to University of Alaska, Pioneer Village, and "downtown" Fairbanks for connection with other bus lines at the Transit Terminal. Free breakfast 6am to 9am, all you can eat FRESH white and wheat bread, toasters, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, cocoa and orange juice, and milk, and free coffee in lobby all day long. ALL STAFF was very friendly and helpful. Room and bath were IMMACULATE: squeaky clean. Easy to operate modern ELECTRONIC SAFE. Only difference between this Super 8 and the "so called luxury hotels" was no swimming pool or gym room (and I did not go to Alaska to swim or work out on my vacation). Super 8 is a franchise, so all of them are individually owned and managed I believe, just would be mopre appearing if the name was changed to FAMILY INN or HOTEL FAIRBANKS ... the name Super 8 implies shoddiness somehow, and I chose this hotel for budget reasons. SUPRISE SURPRISE .. this is certainly a 4-star quality hotel. Plus the Denny's restaurant next door serves generous heaping platters of excellent food, better value than the numerous fast food joints (all of them) near by on Airport Road. Also a "medical emergency center" is next door. The restaurants in downtown Fairbanks are over priced with low quality food. I was actually charged $4 for a glass of orange juice which was actually TANG mix powder orange flavored drink.
“Great for a family”
We were on a shoestring budget and we chose Super 8 mostly for the price. We found that the location was fairly convenient to everything we wanted to do. The staff was very helpful and our stay was quite pleasant. I will definitely stay there on our next visit to Fairbanks.
“WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE.”
At times, housekeeping would forget to leave towels and trash bags. The staff was very pleasant and got me my towels when I asked for them. Good price.
“Fairbanks' Central Hub”
Fairbanks Super 8 Motel is about as convenient as you can get. The location is right off the Airport Road and it's centered on all that is Fairbanks. It's a 5 minute walk to the Sports Arena and right next to the movie theater. Ultimately, it's a great place to go if you want to spend a lot of time away from the motel room and use the motel as a place to lay your head. They do have a pretty nice continental breakfast and they have an attendant in there to assist at all times. I didn't feel like I was 'slumming' it when I stayed here. I felt welcomed and at ease.
“good for basic needs”
Staff is very friendly, but breakfast a bit basic.
“Location is not bad”
Super 8 is an okay place when you are trying to save money. It was clean and the service was good with a friendly staff. If you are looking for 5 Star accomodation this is not for you; but it won't break your bank.
Good overall. The staff was polite and helpful. The price was right and it was centrally located to all of the tourist stuff.
“Great if you only need a place to sleep”
I checked in without a problem. When I went inside the room, I noticed that the room was very dimly lit. As I went in, I also noticed that the room smells very damp. There was some sort of unrecognized trash(?) in one of the room's three chairs. The hotel is located near downtown Fairbanks, but it's somewhat far from everything interesting other than Pioneer Park. The "Super Start Breakfast" is not much of a breakfast at all. If you plan to eat breakfast, there's a McDonald, Denny's, and Wendy's right across the street. The hotel is in a rather quiet location. This hotel is only good for sleeping. If you plan on staying in the room for more than just sleeping, look elsewhere. It's a cheap hotel for a cheap price.
“Super 8 Motel Smells”
you can tell the new towels from the old, because the used ones are grey mixed with new white ones. the carpet looks used and abused, had my whole family use slippers. urine smelling room that we could not stand. i highly not recommened.
“Fairbanks worst hotel”
The room was very dirty, permanent damage to the floor and windows. It had a low level bad smell, not sure what it was. Even the bed was poorly made. I dont know how this place got a 2 star rating when it should have a negative star rating if that was possible.
