My stay at this motel was for 10 days. During that time I left the door sign saying I didn't need clean towels or sheets every day. Many places I've stayed ignore that request but here they listened and that was much appreciated. The breakfast selection when my stay began was very adequate but over time the quality and quantity... More

Hotel and room were new, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Everyone was friendly. Convenient location and close to airport. The courtesy breakfast was a bit lame, but a nice gesture none-the-less. Would stay here again.

We stayed here on the first land last nights as base camp for our stay at the Aurora Borealis Lodge. Hotel was very clean and people were very helpful and friendly. Was perfect for our stay. Rooms do not have a tub in the bathroom which my wife wanted on the last night. Breakfast was just OK. Nice location near... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast station was well managed unlike some other properties where things would get messy. The lady who helped me with the waffle maker was super nice and polite and made us feel very comfortable. Front desk was helpful with tour suggestions. Hotel is clean and comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance of Fred Meyer... More

My nephews and I stayed here on our 5 day visit to Fairbanks. Since we hadn't been to this hotel or Fairbanks before, I was a little worried since it was so inexpensive and included free breakfast and free airport shuttle. But my worries were totally unfounded. We arrived late at night and were cheerfully greeted. Our rooms were clean,... More

This was my third stay at the Best Western Chena River Lodge. As always, the rooms were clean and very comfortable and the staff helpful. The location of the hotel is a huge plus. Very comfortable beds. Will be back!

We try to stay at Best Western brand hotels. The room was large and clean. The hotel was conveniently located. The only problem was the breakfast room was rather small. There was no place to sit. The food was typical continental breakfast, nothing special. Overall, a good stay on our couple days in Fairbanks.

Very clean and quiet in the winter. What a screaming deal for this new clean place with free breakfast. Great waffles, make your own. Staff friendly and helpful. The only tiny complaint is our room was really hot. Even at -40degrees. We finally figured out to put the air on and "cool" so it finally got down to 73 in... More
