Good place for business travel.
Business trip for the Federal Government which means I had to stay at or near a per diem rate of 154 per night. At the time of booking this is as close as I could get within in reason. Not a bad place to stay and decent location for me working at Eielson. People were great. Room, a single double bed was very small and a bit stuffy. Keeping the windows open during last week of August was a must. Windows a bit difficult to open but the succumbed in the end. Tiny bathroom for a large person (me) but I also managed that. Overall I would stay again for business but for personal travel would move to one of the higher priced hotels.

Great hotel great location and great employees
Amazing crew that works here, front desk clerk Chasity Joshua, checked me in and I was told your room is not going to be ready until 3 pm, another lady by the name of Kathy kindly said; I’ll expidite your room since your ride left and you have luggage. These two ladies and other employees made my stay a comfortable one. This hotel has been upgraded very well. Thanks Golden North ! Everyone is kind and courteous there! Joey
