Historical Traveler Reviews Dale and Jo View Suites Fairbanks
Dale and Jo View Suites is THE place to stay in Fairbanks. Spotlessly clean, peaceful and quiet, wonderfully welcoming and friendly owners, beautiful location in the hills. Close drive to everything in Fairbanks yet seemingly a world away. All of this -and more at an affordable price. Quite a find!
Perfection sums up our experience at Dale and Jo View Suites!
This place is wonderful, and the owners are icing on the cake. I want to go back just to see them again - Dale and Jo are both so friendly you feel like you've known them forever. Their home is on a hill on the outskirts of Fairbanks, with beautiful views of the river. Moose are frequently seen nearby, tho none while I was there, sadly. It is so tastefully decorated, with every convenience thought of, including wonderful Select Comfort beds. The bathroom looked like it belonged in a mansion (I was in the Executive Suite room). Jo makes great breakfasts and is very accomodating to your tastes - you can eat in their lovely dining room or take it back to your room if you prefer. She puts your breakfast in the frig so it's ready in the morning for you. Note that the entrance to the home is up a long flight of stairs, and then the rooms are upstairs, so you are prepared. They do have a suite on the ground floor too, in case you cant do stairs, and Jo showed it to me and it was lovely. If I can figure out how to make my pictures smaller (on my Apple)I will post them, because they are lovely. I will definitely go back here. In fact, they have convinced me to come in March for the Ice Festival and the northern lights, and Jo gives wake up calls for the lights.
Over the Top
We travel extensively, and this was one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. It started after a horrendous airline experience, arriving at 10:30PM, rather than 10:30AM, in a state of serious exhaustion. Jo took one look at us and offerered to make sandwiches, which we gratefully wolfed down. We stayed in the new Executive Spa room and no detail was lacking: sleep number bed, multiheaded shower, bidet, etc. in exquisitely crafted rooms. Jo could not have been more gracious or caring. The house sits on a hill outside Fairbanks with glorious views. If you need Fairbanks accomodations, don't miss this experience.
Absolutely flawless is the only way to give an overview of my stay at Dale and Jo View Suites in Fairbanks Alaska. When I walked into my suite, I could tell that I was not at your average Bed and Breakfast. Thought maybe I had just walked into a 5 star hotel. Service was well above what I would expect at the price and the room....very tasteful and well thought out. Spacious room, and filled with techno friendly touches (TV, DVD, and wireless internet connections). You'll enjoy even the typical amenities as they are quality (towels, soaps, and oh....the bed is to die for. Again, more like what you would find at a 5 star hotel, or....heaven...). All were above par for the price. Location is great (highway and airport are just minutes from the door) and getting around is a piece of cake. I anticipate they will go very far with this concept in attracting the business traveler, the "road warrior" as well as those just looking for that perfect place to lay back and just relax. The surrounding grounds are so peaceful and quiet that you will want to sleep forever. You won't want to leave, and I mean that. Give them a try, and I can bet you'll go back. Enjoy!
Despite the cold weather, our stay at Dale and Jo View Suites made our time in Fairbanks this past winter a truly memorable time. It was cold outside, but so very nice and warm in our Suite. The Suite was immaculate top to bottom, the location was perfect, the food divine and Dale and Jo were wonderful hosts. Jo made it a point to inform us the night that the Northern Lights came out. What a site to see. I would Highly Recommended these accommodations to anyone wanting to stay at what has to be one of the nicest accommadations in the area at a great price.
The Suite to Beat
Jo responded to my email request for availability within a day. Even during the Winter, her response was prompt. I can't say the same for all of the other requests I'd made (some took up to 2 weeks to respond). My 13 year old son and I arrived in Fairbanks after being awake for 24 hours that included an airplane delay (hours), and my son getting sick. Jo insisted that I call when I left the airport, so she could ensure I arrived safely. To top off the never-ending day: I got stuck in the snow on the way from the airport! Jo and Dale came to my rescue and pulled me out. They didn't complain that it was 2 in the morning, and acted so gracious that I already loved the place. Walking into my suite, though, I realized just what a find I'd made. It was beautiful inside, and I was practically asleep before I even fell into the huge and comfy sleep number bed. Did I mention the warm walk to my bedroom in my socks? I'd never experienced radiant heated floors, but they were absolutely exquisite! I used the washer & dryer every couple of days, and the kitchen every day; talk about convenience. From leaving board games in my suite for my son & I to play, to giving tips on things to do and places to eat, to giving wakeup calls for aurora sightings; Dale and Jo Suites provides the warm and wonderful customer service too few places of business offer today. If I could make up a motto for Dale and Jo Suites, it would be "Where the Little Things Mean a Lot," or "Where You are Truly Valued as Our Guest." My 7-day stay at the Suites ended up being too short. I am looking forward to another trip to Alaska, and hopefully another stay at Dale and Jo Suites.
Homey and Quiet
We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts, in many states, and Dale and Jo View Suites in Fairbanks, Alaska is easily in the top 3 we've ever stayed in.
We are fairly discriminating. We had plans to stay at one of the local hotels, but after viewing the room, we decided there had to be someplace better. Making our way to the visitors center downtown, it was recommented that we check out Dale and Jo View Suites. After confirming they did have a room, we got directions and drove out. Not knowing what this was going to be like, we tried to keep an open mind. Boy where we surprised to find such a wonderful property. I was a little bit skeptical at first, but now that we have stayed there, we are true believers.
The grounds are beautiful, and as other reviewers have mentioned, the host have thought of many of the small amenities in the rooms which make the difference between a pleasant stay and a truly homey, wonderful stay. The decorations and furnishings are also something special. The host are friendly, informative, intelligent and helpful. The location is only minutes from town or from the airport. The whole experience is about as far away as one can get, in a good way, from the generic mediocrity of even most of the "high end" chain hotels (think Hilton, Hyatt, etc.). The host are the real deal, they have done things in a high-quality way even when it would be easy to do less and still "get by". Our schedule only let us stay one night, but we wished we could have stayed for a month.
I recently stayed six nights at Dale & Jo's View Suites in Fairbanks, AK. It was the best B&B experience I've ever had. The hosts, Jo mostly but Dale as well, were as accommodating as possible and even alerted me when the Northern Lights lit up the sky. That was truly an unforgettable experience.
I would give my highest recommendation to anyone travelling to Fairbanks to give Dale & Jo's a try. I am a single traveler, but while I was there, a family with 2-year-old twins arrived and were easily accommodated downstairs.
Staying at Dale & Jo's was like staying at home -- or at least the home I could wish for.
We Loved It.
Summer of 2005 my wife and I stayed at Dale and Jo View Suites for 2 nights. It is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Our room had a king size select number bed which gave us a great nights sleep. The owners could not have been nicer and the room was spotless. The view is wonderful and it's very peaceful and quiet. I have and will continue to recommend this B & B to everyone I know.
A Wonderful Stay
What an incredible B & B. We have stayed at many places in our travels, but none have been as nice as this. The decor is 5 star plus and the service only exceeds this. This is one of the most quiet places we have ever stayed. The home sits high above the road on a cal-de-sac and thus the lack of traffic noise was wonderful. As we sat outside enjoying the amazing views of the Alaskan Range and the Chena and Tanana Rivers one could truly relax and bask in all the amazing beauty. The room we had has a king size Sleep Number bed. We had never slept on one of these before, but we found that in being able to adjust the firmness we got some of the best nights rest ever. The Innkeepers where great and have done an amazing job. We would highly recommend this to one and all.

Morning came and unfortunately last night the Northern Lights never showed up as it seems it was not meant to be. Maybe we will get another chance further north.
After a quick shower I packed my gear and we loaded the bikes and head back into town. When we got there the Alaskan train service had just stopped and dropped off a bunch of people. Kevin was shocked at how busy it still was as he expected most the tourist to be gone already. ...

... before going to the airport to return the car and check-in by 11:30 pm. Fortunately the hotel had lounges both on the ground floor and first floor level where there werre even 2 power points in the floor.
Return of the car was easy (what a great car the Jeep Cherokee has been - comfortable and easy to drive). We clocked up 1,019 miles. Breezed through check-in (no mention of bag costs as our destination is still USA) and customs. At 12:30 pm it is almost dark outside; almost.
... given the sea fog that had rolled in over night. But again you have to see it as part of the experience and what we encountered was reportedly pretty typical.
By 11 am we were rugged up against the cold and on the road South. Pretty soon we were riding through light rain. This persisted most of the way to Wiseman. So we were pretty used to wet slippery roads and dirty visors (mud splattered).
I have to say I am very happy with my BMW yellow ...
