Convenient--shuttle from train station and airport made it easy. Breakfast on site was good. Stored our luggage for a few days when we travelled to the Arctic.

Thank you for taking the time to rate our hotel and write a comment. The word/character minimums required by the comment sections can be a bit much, especially for weary travelers. We are glad that you will be coming back to the Bridgewater Hotel! We will be open year round starting this summer and we hope to see you soon!

Beds are Below Average/Shower Too Small

Pros: The location is great. They offer free tours to the attractions around town that this hotel chain owns. They have airport shuttles. Free wifi
Cons: Updating their beds, bathrooms and providing extra pillows and blankets. Allowing partial bookings. Like when people don't need a whole day or night.
Location: It's right down town with several coffee shops, restaurants within walking distance. It is across from the river, so a nice place to walk.
I didn't sleep the first night because it felt like I was sleeping on the box springs. I went to the store and purchased a Memory Foam mattress and was able to sleep the next night. There was no extra blankets or pillows in the room. But the front desk did get extras very quickly once requested. The sun stays up nearly 24/7 in Fairbanks, Alaska from early May - late September (the tourist season). But there are no black out curtains on the windows, so people who need a dark room need to take some black plastic bags to tape over the windows (or some eye covers). This hotel charges for their continental breakfast and also has a full breakfast option for about $5 bucks more. I did not eat the food. But this is the only meal served at this hotel. Only hotel guests may use the hotel parking lot. Anybody without a hotel authorization may be towed. There are 2 hour parking spaces in front of the hotel, free to the public. The shower was barely accommodated only me. I had to turn the water off to soap up. The coffee is absolutely horrible. They only set out 1 pack (for the provided 4 cup coffee maker) regular/1 pack decaf. Honestly, I would spend a bit more and stay at another hotel. I had 2 separate hotel bookings. One for SAT/SUN then later added a FRI (as I realized I'd get there about 1 am Sat). But I had to get up and check out by 11 am on SAT (I just checked in at 1 am). They could not combine my bookings ??? to make my stay more enjoyable? My info was entered wrong.

Very accommodating staff

Pros: friendly
Cons: I do not like a costly breakfast buffet, my husband is diabetic and we are both watching our weight, would like the option of a small breakfast.
Location: Crepery great for lunch, skip the salmon roast at pioneer park, visitors center and university museum very good for glimpse of Alaska
I had issues booking through Travelocity, but the staff was very nice to help me extend my stay, and helpful with activity suggestions in town for the 2 days we were there.

All the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Bridgewater was in a very convenient location with easy access to restaurants and the river walk. The room was comfortable and clean. Every person we met who was part of the hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Not having a rental car, the trolley was an excellent way to get to locations far away from the hotel. Also, the free airport shuttle was an excellent feature. The reasonably priced breakfast available at the hotel was a great way to start the day. The price of the room was an excellent value. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I will definitely return the next time I visit Fairbanks.
