This hotel is a bit small and dated...BUT it has a huge personality! This family owned and operated hotel has the best service of anyplace we have stayed to this point. Everyone is friendly and quick to take care of every need. They were very informative and full of suggestions and maps and bus schedules of the area. Coffee, donuts,...

The best customer service I have ever had! Super friendly family owned business. I spoke with them on the phone never told them my name and they recognized my voice and new who I was. They are very flexible with your needs! I just can't say enough good things about this place and owners!!

It's an older motel, pet friendly (only 5 bucks for a dog), with friendly staff. It's basic but that's all I needed. I would stay there again. Free donuts in the morning. It's warm, the rooms are clean. It has cable and free wifi. The water was warm and the bed was soft. It's a budget place. I go to...

Good size clean room for reasonable price. Very friendly family run business that had good answers when we had questions. Shuttle from airport came quickly even though our flight was after midnight. They shuttled us to our lodge for the tour we had signed up for after our three day stay.

We had to make other arrangements due to time frame issues. Men were there to hunt and needed a room sooner as they had been up for about 36 hours just in flights and traveling. No complaint with motel.

Older motel near the Harley shop. We were on a Harley trip and need to be close to the shop. Everyone was friendly and it was easy to make and change reservations as our plans changed. Simple accommodations with all you need to get some rest. Clean and safe. Airport nearby as is the highway but nothing you can't live...

If you're looking for a simple motel with an affordable price, this motel is the way to go. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. I would stay here again. There was even pastries set out with coffee for breakfast. And it's pet friendly! Only $5 a night!

Got picked up by the motel from the smaller airport (after an arctic tour). The guy who picked us up barely spoke, if it all, and never offered to help with bags. He also checked us in, not at all friendly and didn't direct us to our room so we walked around the wrong, long way. Free WiFi, works well....

Easy access and quiet neighborhood. Kept clean and prices are a lot lower than other places in Fairbanks. Family run business and they know their frequent out of town guests by name. Free wifi and quiet area. Parking is convenient. Nice place to relax and enjoy a couple of nights stay.

I had excellent service when I stayed at the Golden North Motel. My room was clean and remained that way throughout my stay, thanks to the lovely cleaning staff. The front office was also kept clean and was very welcoming. The owners, managers, and staff were very friendly and always went above and beyond for me. They always had staff...

“There is a strip joint just down the road and the highway a block and a half away... not a good location. The room was very small but it was clean. The hotel desk people were friendly and helpful. The best rooms are on the other end away from the office.”
