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

Amazed by very helpful staff in breakfast room. She is keen to service every guest. Hotel location close to Fred Meyers within walking distance. Comfortable beds and clean in public areas Polite front desk makes me feel confident to stay in BW next time.

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

Clean, mostly, though our room, especially the bedside lamps, could have benefited from a good dusting. Convenient location, sure. Breakfast, better than some -- the bowl of canned fruit cocktail was pretty sad and the instant coffee barely tolerable, but the eggs and sausages were fine. Be prepared to PAY for parking ($3/day) if you park and fly -- other... More

This was a very nice hotel, clean,everyone was polite and helpful. It was nice and quiet. Internet ran at about 374k. I Will definitely come again. It was nice that it was across from Fred Meyers and walgreens.

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.

The handicap room was great. The roll in shower was nice and level with well-positioned hand held shower and lots of grab bars. Nice large bathroom. There was lots of space on both sides of the king size bed. I'm a wheelchair user and was able to reach the thermostat and open and close the curtains, which if you've traveled... More
