Actually we might give Chena Hot Springs about 3.5 stars. It has some really good things and some things they could do a whole lot better. It was not up to the standard you expect when you pay almost $300 per night. First the good. The resort is literally at the end of the road, about 60 miles east of... More

We decided to go up to Chena Hot springs for the afternoon. We planned to go tot eh poil and hot springs after enjoying an amazing drive along Chena Hot Springs Road which is about 60 miles long. The scenery is spectacular and on our way we saw eagles and small wildlife, the highlight of the road trip was seeing... More

The grounds at Chena Hot Springs Resort are lovely. The landscaping and animals and ponds provide a great place to leisurely walk and enjoy an Alaskan summer day. However, our room was much less than satisfactory. The carpet was dirty and someone's earbuds had been left on the floor in an obvious place. Made me wonder if they even vacuumed!... More

We went specifically for the hot springs and drove a long way to get there. The hot springs were nice. There were very hot spots, hot, warm, and cool spots. The different temperatures made it easy to stay in the springs for longer periods of time. We did not have time for any other activities. The walk by the pool... More

Went to the Ice Museum and the Hot Springs, then enjoyed a small tub of ice cream in the cafe. Ice Museum is not to be missed. The sculptures are incredible and you can even see the artists at work if they're in during your tour. The bar was popular and the Appletinis were delicious according to those who got... More

We only went for a few hours, but the drive was lovely. We went to the ice museum (15$ per person) which was fascinating, then off to the hot springs. It was a little cooler than I expected but still nice. I think it would be cool to be out there in the winter with the view of the Northern... More

I do not think we not return base on rudeness or indifference of employees. We were considering a family reunion at CHSR. Started at pool considering swim. Some one was working on stocking a shelf nearby. He ignored us for about 5 minutes. Eventually he said someone would be in to help us shortly, no hello, no smile. "Someone" came... More

Went on a 3 day mini vacation with my daughter and stayed at the Moose Lodge. The room was warm and inviting. We left an "aurora" call. If the Aurora is active they let you know. Unfortunately for us, we didn't get to see it. Spent a lot of time in the hot spring lake. So soothing and relaxing. The... More
