Fairbanks hotel

For anyone familiar, I would ask where the best place to stay in Fairbanks is?

Good point

Unique and nice for whatever reasons the recommending party can think of. Great location perhaps. Or a b and b with really nice owners and a lovely vibe. Or a value for money local that is unbeatable. I welcome all types of recommendations.

In June 2010 we stayed at the Bridgewater Hotel. They provided a shuttle from the airport and then to the rail station when we left. Location was central, town shuttle called outside the hotel for a trip we used to the Uni Museum. It was also an easy walk around the CBD & Big Daddy's steakhouse.
Rooms are nothing fantastic but clean & comfortable & did the job for our 1 night stay.

What are you going for? How long are you staying? If just a short overnight, stay near the airport for example.

I am spending just one night in Fairbanks this coming September. Literally just "on the way" from MSP to Denali NP. I got a great rate at the SpringHill Suites downtown so I decided to stay there. Having a free breakfast and having a fridge in the room are pluses to me. I will be shopping upon my arrival for groceries at Denali and having the fridge will be nice. I have stayed there in the past and enjoy it.

You mention "all types" of recommendations. Just hotels? B&B's? Hostels?

Some places in my notes (never stayed at any of these) are:
Dale and Jo View Suites
Front Street B&B
Cloudberry Lookout B&B

I've stayed about 7 or 8 times at this place:

It's about 10 minutes outside Fairbanks, so that may be a concern. But I love staying there; take a look at the pix. Not only is it unique, but the owners do a fantastic job. Outstanding breakfasts. I'm not sure why the web site looks outdated, but they are definitely still going strong.

I stayed here at the Springhill Suites in Fairbanks and loved it. Reasonable rate, and I could walk everywhere or catch the local bus. They also had a free shuttle to / from airport.

I've stayed at the SpringHill as well as Billie's Backpacker Hostel. The former is your standard hotel room (nothing special, although extremely convenient to downtown and with a very good restaurant in its lobby [Lavelle's Bistro]); the latter is an, um, unique experience.

One of my former coworkers (albeit one I never knew very well) owns and operates Minnie Street B&B with his wife. Seems to get good reviews.

A friend stayed at Pike's and said it was decent.

Oh, yeah--I stayed at the Super 8 in 1994 when it was 96 degrees outside and they had not yet installed air conditioning.
