This place is not fancy but very clean, neat and presentable. Staff was friendly and attentive. Parking is plentiful. It's location is convenient though outside the core of the city. It's a very good value for the business or leisure traveler.

We stayed here on three separate days during our 10-day Alaska vacation. Each time we were greeted in a warm friendly manner. On the third time in, we were recognized by our first night host. That was nice to hear. The food was warm and tasty, the room was quiet and very clean. The staff was very friendly and chatty.... More

We spent 2 nights here at the end of our Alaska vacation. It's close to the airport and was very clean and comfortable. Many hotel rooms have a certain unpleasant smell, but our room smelled nice and clean. The cleaning staff was also very friendly. I like having a refrigerator and microwave in the room so that was nice for... More

We check in on Friday. On Saturday, after traveling locally, we return to the hotel to find only one of two beds made, no cleanup in the bathroom, the coffee station unstocked, dirty cups left around, the trash cans full etc etc. we did get fresh towels but the dirty ones were left. After discussing this with the front desk,... More

Good standard of breakfast. No restaurant but the breakfast space had coffee etc available all day and we could eat our own bought lunch there also. The room was well appointed and... More

Best Western on Chena River was a typical hotel. Their front desk staff was friendly and helpful finding restaurants and tours to go on. They had no shuttle service but contracted with Yellow Cabs to pick up and deliver guests to the typical places: train station, airport, etc. Also they had a decent hot complimentary breakfast, but it does not...

We stayed here after we flew into Fairbanks. Though it was a short drive from the airport, we greatly appreciated the shuttle (taxi) service. The following morning, another free ride took us to the car rental place. After we drove the Dalton Hwy., we returned for a second night. The rooms were clean and spacious, the beds were comfortable but... More

This is the nicest BW I've ever stayed in. The rooms are large and nicely decorated. The beds are wonderfully soft and comfy. Oddly, though, the pillow are not your usual standard size. They are a small pillow, about 3/4 the size of a standard. But, there are plenty of them. CON: the rooms doors are heavy, and if not... More

My Mom and I stayed a week at thie property and there were no bad suprises. The room looked just like the picture. My only complaint is that housekeeping forgot to refill the coffee 3x and there was one day where they did not do anything in the room. On the positive side I was able to get coffee from... More
