    I usually stay here when visiting Fairbanks, often with groups of college students. The rooms are pleasant and the staff are helpful. Their location is good -- near the airport and within walking distance of grocery and other stores.

    Hello SabinaJan, Yes the Northern Lights are visible from the Hotel but also a short walk towards the river will get you a better view.

    I don´t think so. They barely have wi-fi (it´s pay to use). But then again, that´s part of the experience of being in the wilderness. Just my two cents.
