The heating/air conditioning unit in the room made a loud banging noise every 5 minutes even though it was turned off. When I first got to the room the temperature was 85 degrees. Couldn't sleep a wink. I talked to management about it but they said they couldn't fix it. I won't be staying at this hotel again.

Awesome city and place to stay. People are friendly and helpful. The northern lights were beautiful and the fly/drive trip to Coldfoot was the best. Unseasonably warm but wore layers and was beautiful none the less. Food was all shipped in but still good.

The room was spacious and clean. Big screen tv, microwave and small refrigerator in the room. The bed was kind of sunken in on one side but it was still comfortable (at least for one night). We booked our stay through Expedia and were surprised when we didn't get the rate posted on the site. It was just a few... More

There were a number of factors behind my recommendation but one of the main ones was that This Hotel is the place that I always stay in when I arrive in Fairbanks and when I leave Fairbanks. The Hotel staff is very Helpful and Caring!

I have nothing negative to say about my experience at this hotel. It's almost new, the location served my purpose perfectly, the staff was absolutely outstanding from the moment of check-in through check-out, the continental breakfast was excellent, the place was very clean, neat and well organized as was the staff. This will be my new "Go To" place when... More

The Best Western PLUS Chena Rover Lodge is conveniently located between the airport and the business district. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean, and pleasant. The breakfast is well above the normal fare.
