We stayed here for a week while we looked for an apartment as we were making a permanent move to Fairbanks. We loved our room and how quiet it was. My complaints would be the lack of a legit bellhop cart. They have ones you find in an airport but it doesn’t hold very much. Also, they allow people to smoke right outside the front door. It was not ideal to have to unload our car with several trips due to no bellhop cart and to have to breath in cigarette smoke the entire time. Other than that, we were happy with our stay.

We had stayed at this hotel the day before and I got a great night’s sleep. Decided to return after sightseeing and when we came back, the elevator was out of order and we were on the third floor. The vending machine on the third floor so I went down three flights of stairs to get change, then when I put the money in after climbing back up to the third floor, the drink selection I picked was out. No indication that it was out. I guess this just all added up to a less than stellar review I gave for the previous night. These things just happen sometimes.
