Best Fairbanks Experience A review of Pike's Waterfront Lodge

Every part of my experience at Pike's was remarkable. The greeting at the front desk was pleasant, considering it was almost 2:00 in the morning. My room was fresh, the rate was attractive and it smelled good. I thought the bed wasfirm, which is always a pleasure, since it's hard to sleep away from home. Although the rooms are practical, and not overdone with amenities, I did appreciate the Aveda line of soaps and shampoo. I've seen it advertised on tv. Breakfast was complimentary and quite decent. I had a waffle and enjoyed the artwork, which is all original oil paintings and way beyond what I expected for a Fairbanks hotel. I had a chance to eat at the restaurant next door at Pike's Landing and it gave me a feel for a local place--it's been around for decades and added some authenticity to the trip. I like being around locals and the food was good and fairly priced. Everything about the place was great, but I liked the people the best--very friendly staff. This will be my hotel of preference for Fairbanks from now on.
