That a beautiful, clean and welcoming hotel located near the airport and many of the Fairbanks attractions. This was a perfect location for my son to travel to from Eielson AFB (30 minutes away) and it gave us the opportunity to stay in town and explore.

Very nice, new, clean hotel. Highly recommend staying here! Continental Breakfast in the morning was good, but also very busy so it would help to get up early to beat others to grab some food. Overall very nice hotel, I wish there was a pool and hot tub though. I am a clean freak and I was happy with the... More

Near the airport, 5-10min walk to the nearest Fred Meyer (supermarket) and restaurants. Friendly front desk staff, hot water is accessible 24h from the lobby, free parking and room is clean & spacious.

We stayed again at the Chena River Lodge Best Western Hotel in Fairbanks. Our visit last year was so pleasant we were not even interested in staying any place else. The staff is always helpful and friendly, the breakfast was very good with plenty of variety. It is quiet. comfortable, and most restful. Located close to the many places we... More

The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. We visited during March hoping to see the aurora borrealis and stayed for a week. Upon arrival Chase at the front desk let us know that he would be watching the camera north of Fairbanks and would call us if the lights showed up. You do need to drive north and away... More

The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport and provides free airport transfer. The property looks new and clean with a decent breakfast in the morning. My wife and I went in expecting a dingy motel but the hotel was nice and comfortable. It is conveniently located near the Fred Meyer and Walgreens which was really helpful since we needed... More

We stayed for a total of 4 nights on two separate occasions. The hotel staff was very professional and welcoming-- they were also very knowledgeable of the area. The hotel was clean and comfortable. We flew out very early in the morning, and they arranged our ride to the airport. The taxi arrived promptly at 5 am. Breakfast was very... More

Wonderful, welcoming staff!- front desk personnel were pleasant & helpful without being "fake corporate friendly"! Breakfast quite good, much better than other chains & Jackie was great. Our room was clean, quiet, & comfortable. Had a lovely view of snow-covered woods from our window. Added bonus was location - we really enjoyed our stay!

When making the reservation, hotel said they would call for a taxi and it would be a priority call. Flight arrived just after midnight and we waited for a taxi at the curb for more than 40 minutes (in 1 degree F weather) after we called the hotel. Cab drivers didn't seem to know which hotel called and took whoever... More
