We booked here upon the recommendation of a local friend. The location was very convenient to shopping, restaurants and local sights.
Our suite was well appointed with all we needed in the kitchen, two flat screen tv's, a comfortable "living room" and overall a very comfortable space. Since we were staying a full week, it was great to have plenty of space. It was also very nice having laundry facilities available and easily accessible.
The front desk staff was pretty friendly, but not always knowledgeable about local sights. The tour company they recommended for an Aurora Tour (our primary reason for this trip) could benefit from customer service training. We booked with another one and were very pleased.

Well, not the whole morning panning! Our tour time to the Gold Dredge 8 tour was for 10:30. We arrived in time and the tour guide was ready to give us an oral presentation on the history and workings of the Trans Alaskan Pipeline which is located very close to the Dredge Site. He did and excellent job and his talk was very interesting. This gave the first trainload of tourists a chance to get on down the ...
Woke up to a cool morning with rain which put paid to a walk before our shuttle service to the airport for our flight to Fairbanks. The shuttle turned out to be a chauffeur driven Lincoln Town Car which was a nice surprise. Not for the first time on internal flights in the U.S. our flight was overbooked resulting in chaos in general and a delayed flight. The 3 1/2 hr flight to Alaska ...
... on activity. Was it our green or her green? These people are so spoiled! But I get it. After some of our experiences here, activity at home loses its luster. But for Deena it's a work night. So I guess there's a trade off for that activity! At least when we're here, this is all we have to do.
The Chatanika Lodge is a very interesting place. It's a motel with tiny rooms with a shared woman and a ...
... She got it originally at Walmart in the U.S. a few years ago and it was cheap. Now, a similar camera is not so cheap. She no longer has zoom envy, as she has bought the same one that I got in Newfoundland. She will need it because tomorrow she is going on a flight to Coldfoot and then a return trip by land, where she will hopefully see the Northern Lights and the cross the Arctic Circle. It was lucky as I was undecided whether to go or not as it was expensive and ...
