Choose Something Else in Fairbanks
You have no idea. This was the worst hotel we've come across in a long time. I have a problem with false advertising and this place really just should have said, "If we say we have it on our website, in actuality, we do not." We chose it because we knew we'd be getting in late and wanted to have a place to eat either nearby on better yet, on the premises. The Best Western Fairbanks Inn's website claimed they not only had a restaurant but also a saloon open until 2, an internet cafe and an ice cream place. Sounded great. Guess what was locked up (with a padlock) when we arrived? The restaurant closed early, the saloon was never to open during our stay and the only thing available to us at 10pm was old coffee. I checked the guest directory...absolutely NOTHING about the saloon being seasonal. After driving up from Anchorage, the last thing we wanted to do was get back in the car and look for a place to eat but we had to just that. It goes way beyond the false advertising-- from a dirty washcloth to the broken A/C unit (in a room that was 80F) and a stuck window. It goes beyond the less than welcome reception we got at the front desk and goes beyond the unattractive neighborhood and creepy population surrounding the hotel. For more, read Bobby's write up about our stay at this Best Western. Never again will I stay there and never again do I even hope to see it. Surround sound. This is not from the TV, though. It is from guests having...um..."relations" in the next room and every sound amplified in the hallway. Again, Bobby's account will have to share the details. If a unique quality is forcing us to contemplate driving back down to Anchorage at 2 in the morning because the stay was that bad, then this place is most definitely unique.
