I have to say that, although most of the staff was really nice and helpful, there where some rotten fruits, especially at 'El Cafe' dinning room, where an older gray haired woman seemed to be giving us the 'evil eye' our entire stay. At one point she waited on us and got half of our order wrong. Even though me and my companion ordered the exact same thing, one of us got it right and the other completely wrong. Now, in spite of this woman, there is no better place to have breakfast that 'El Cafe'.
Now, sorry, but this has to be said. The room amenities: toilet paper. It was the kind you might find at a Marriott or a Taco Bell. Yes, the really thin one, the one you have to use four times the usual amount to get the job done.
Other than those two 'inconveniences' I have to say that I enjoyed my stay at the Captain Cook. Everything downtown is at walking distance, including a small shopping mall, the museum and a lot of souvenir shops. And as I said, there's no better place to have breakfast at, than 'El Cafe'. We tried other places like the famous, and extremely expensive 'Snow City Cafe' with poor results.

This bed and breakfast is in a beautiful setting. We stopped here on our way to Denali National Park and were mesmerized by the beauty of the surroundings. A moose was taking a bath in the lake and everything about this place is peaceful and extraordinary. The breakfast was great and the owner is always there with helpful tips and keeping you informed as to directions, attractions, restaurants, etc. I would love to go back and spend a few days there to see the Northern Lights.

This cabin was more than we were expecting. It's very new with modern amenities. The owner was away when we are arrived but he had his mom come and check on us to make sure we had everything we needed. That was above and beyond what we would expect staying here. It was a great cabin in a great town in the most beautiful state....Alaska!

The airport shuttle is a super facility offered by this hotel. We visited Fairbanks during March and arrived around midnight. We called for a shuttle pickup from the airport which was super quick (~5 mins). Next morning the hotel shuttle also dropped us to a tour company (near the airport) for free!

Nice hotel. Great staff who go the extra mile.
Main let-downs were the food in Red Lantern restaurant (cold), and blinds did not cover window completely at bottom letting light in.
Otherwise had a great stay.
