It really is a long drive out to the springs. We left it a little late in the day to go out there. The accommodation is older and more school camp style. We went on the geothermal tour which showed us how the hot springs were used to heat the buildings and then went over to the greenhouse to see... More

I have been twice to Chena and both times were amazing. The place has been there a long time and has it's issues, but you don't go for the Marriott...you go for the natural hot springs. My first time there in 2002 was during the tail end of winter in March. Was about 12° outside and felt awesome when you... More

Allow at least an hour for the drive up the Chena Hot Springs road which ends at the resort. Visited in winter when -20C and was an experience to say the least. Take you own towel and save the hire costs. Staff were polite but he didn't look happy in his job. The adult pool has a heated corridor almost... More

The resort offers lodging, food, and a number of activities. We did not stay at the resort but took advantage of the hot springs, and toured the ice museum (separate review). The springs were nice but nothing exceptional. Fortunately they were not very crowded. They might be better at night, in the winter, or when the aurora is visible. The... More

It was a fun day trip, hot springs, the greenhouses, and the ice museum. We also ate at their restaurant which featured greens grown in their greenhouse.

Very nice staff for giving us drinking water at midnight. Hot spring in the cold winter at Alaska is very cool. The price with discount on dull season is very competitive.

I should start by saying we didn't stay overnight here, rather we made it a day trip from Fairbanks. My husband and I were there in October 2014 and really enjoyed ourselves. We started by just walking around the property and looking at the hot springs. We then toured the ice museum, had lunch at the restaurant, and then toured... More

I wanted to visit the Aurora Ice Museum and the hot springs. It was quite a bumpy ride from Fairbanks. Unfortunately it was raining all day with low clouds so we didn't have a good view on the surroundings. First we had lunch at the restaurant. Yummy. Nice decorated room. After our visit to the Ice Museum we went to... More
