    Four of us are coming up in the middle of Sept for a moose hunt and I was wondering where a good place to stay is. I do not know if we should go the cheapest way and go out for food and drinks or pay a little more for a little better place that maybe has a watering hole and a restaurant in it. Just looking for some advice on some good hotels.

    I don't know which one to suggest, but there are quite a few new hotels going up right now, and it is looking like the tourist season this year might be a bust. I'd imagine you could get some pretty good rates with the new competition in town.

        Pikes is really nice . They offer breakfast free @ 7:00 . Umm , They are far from cheap though . Comfort inn might be a bit less ? check into the prices and so forth . They offer a breakfast too , but it's not as good as Pikes .

          Pikes is my favorite

          I really like Pikes but only in the winter,,, TOO expensive when I have to compete with the tourists. Stay in a tent and eat at McDonalds!!

            I stayed at the Super 8 in Fairbanks one weekend, it was a zoo. Stay somewhere else if you want to get some sleep.

              We have stayed at the Comfort Inn on Chena Loop a few times. It is a good deal and has never been crowded. I recommend it.

                Check the old posts. There is something pretty similar to this from last year. I would suggest that you consider places like Sophie's Station and Wedgewood. They are set up like apartments, they have a living room and a kitchen. Pretty comfortable for bigger groups. Also the Aspen (I think they changed their name) is an all suite hotel. They have fridges and microwaves in the room, also a hot tub, pool, and gym. Continental breakfast in the morning.

                  hotels

                  well as stated in the other post there are a lot to choose from the nicer ones with resturants are the Regency (sp?) and Pikes. but there are others on airport way and Johanson Expressway dont know if they are dun yet since i left in sept to come to iraq. sophies and wedgewood are both nice and like stated are more the apartment style. One other idea is if any of you might be retired military you could stay on Fort Wainwright. They build the lodging about 2 or 3 years ago and its pretty nice. hace a little breakfast to i heard in the morning. The only bad think about there is they dont let you make reservations until like 3 days out. well good luck and hope this helps.

                    For the real alaskan experience, I recommend you get the cheapest hotel on 2nd street you can find. Lots of local color in that area.

                      Only 1 hotel left on 2 St. - Spring Hill Suites...and I doubt it's cheap!

                        Okay i have to ask... but if your going Moose hunting why do you need a hotel room? one would think a tent more fitting.. unless you plan on hunting the 9am walmart rush...
