    hard to make reservations so far in advance so i guess we are going to have to take our chances and hope there is room at the Inn when we get closer to Fairbanks...right now we are not sure when we would be arriving...we are allowing for and weather and also side trips because we have 40 days and I really don't want to be riding with a fixed itinerary....thanks for the info...going in my iphone as we speak!:clap

    Wish I'd know about it in '08

    Hotels in Fairbanks are very expensive & fill up quickly

    Tourist season in Alaska is roughly May 1 through September 15 and during that time anything but a fleabag dump will be pushing $200 a night. This UAF deal is pretty special and it's a really good thing that there's not more hunting pressure for the rooms as it is.

    Soph9... unless you're either loaded or planing to camp you're going to find that a summer lodging plan for Fairbanks that requires luck, hope or serendipity is going to have a disappointing aspect to it.

    I've overpaid wildly to stay at a few places there including a little crack-house hotel called The Ranch off Cushman. Amazingly how much you can pay for an unpleasant dump. Planning is better.

    we are planning on camping as much as possible and when we get closer to an idea as to when we will be in Fairbanks we will see if the University has space but I have little idea when we will be there right now. Thanks for the heads up!

    This is an awesome deal! My dad, brother and myself stayed here twice last summer. Once before the trip up the Dalton, and again when we got back. There is plenty of space in each room to bring in anything off the bike. There are washer/driers available, all you need is the soap which is avail in the lobby area. They even have WiFi if you brought your computer. At check in they have a list of motorcycle service places avail in the area. The staff will even let you check some items in so that you can leave heavier gear there for a few days, which is what we did for our trip up the Dalton. We left all our camping gear.

    Of our 3 week trip, this was by far the cheapest place to stay, but also for us the best place to stay because of the multiple showers, and laundry.

    Best of luck, hope this continues, if so we will deffinately be back in 2014/2015 for our Dempster trip!

    I just booked three rooms for June for a few days. Rates are up to 76 for a double non-student, but still very reasonable.

    Ricky, I'm guessing your post has a typo in it. The rates went up from $43/day for a double last year to $46 this year. We have no rate of $76/day for any sort of accommodation.
