My room was comfortable and warm. Very spacious and the bed was great. The internet is a bit slow and I wasn't a huge fan of the shower (not a tub combo and the shower head left a little to be desired).

We stayed at the Chena River Lodge for over a week, and everyday was a good experience! The lodge smells very clean, and is very welcoming from the moment you walk in!

This was a great hotel! The room was quiet and comfortable (I slept like a rock). The personnel were friendly, laid-back and helpful. The price was spot on, as well.

The breakfast was very... More

Third floor, non-smoking, accessible room near elevator. Very nicely furnished. Friendly, helpful staff at front desk and in providing free breakfast as well as information. I was also impressed with their dedication to cleaning up outside of the building.

We really loved the service here. Everyone was very accommodating. I asked for a tub and got it. But the bed was atrocious. We asked to be moved, the next bed was mildly better. Seriously there are imprints of where people sleep in these beds. We used white noise machines to sleep through our rowdy next door neighbors. Breakfast was... More

Stayed 4 nights (12/25 - 12/28) for family winter vacation. Hotel provided good hot breakfast, shuttle services. Staffs are very helpful for our requests, such as arranged free shuttle service to our tour meeting place. Room was clean and cozy. Location was convenient for both shopping and eating. We will recommend this hotel to our friends.

Near UAF and Shopping! Was great for home base while we visited family and took care of business. Front staff was helpful and nice. Breakfast was fine - lots to choose from. Nice area down hall to sit and ready or study.

As a rural Alaska resident this is my go to Hotel when I travel to Fairbanks. Good location. Helpful staff. Very Clean. Good breakfast included. Very comfortable beds. The sink is separate from the shower & toilet which makes it more efficient for us.
