Very courteous staff and a beautiful property. Checked in early but found myself wondering the lobby for a while looking at all of the animals. I'll be staying here again. I watched float planes taking off and landing out my window. It was awesome!

I spent 4 nights in March during the Itidarod. The hotel was clean, big rooms, had laundry facilities and a small gym. Very Close to the airport with a free shuttle. The Restaurant and bar had good food and friendly service, if there was a down side the restaurant was over priced.

The food at the restaurant was good and the rooms seem to have been upgraded. It is very convenient to the airport but you need car to taxi to get downtown. I did not stay at the hotel as I was working for there since it is Iditarod headquarters

We've been coming here since before the name change, and it seems that the renovation was worth it. The new rooms (we stayed on the 3rd floor) had nice new carpet and a re-done shower/toilet room (that was badly needed). King bed room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Nice pillows. Bar and restaurant still good, with a... More

Had a fantastic stay at the Lakefront during the 2016 iditarod start. Employees were all super helpful and did a great job of making this a delightful trip. The entertainment and pre-race festivities in the lounge were lots of fun. We would stay here any time of year just love it.

We arrived at the hotel at 3am, being so close to the airport my hopes weren't high of it being overly nice. But, we were pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff, very clean and modern room with a comfy bed. Close drive to plenty of places to eat and only 10 mins from downtown. I'd stay here again for sure.
