Fairbanks Best Western Plus
Our stay is okay. Wish they would freshen up the room. Have AC turn so it would not smell like a moldy carpet. We requested nonsmoking and got a handicap room with a handicap shower which creates water on the floor. The toilet was an other style and it was dirty at the bottom. Otherwise then that it was okay for our stay.

Comfy bed
Bed was super comfy. Check-in was quick but the clerk was a little distracted and forgot to mention breakfast times. Overall it was comfortable and spacious for the price. Hotel grounds were quite dirty with garbage outside but it was also spring breakup and all the snow was melting away revealing the trash.
