I was travelling from JFK to Fairbanks last month to see the northern lights. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I missed my flight so I Immediately called them to notify them of the situation. I have booked my accommodation around August but have noticed there was nothing deducted on my card so I called them and asked if they could... 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.

We were moving and had to stay in a hotel during that awkward transition period. The staff were wonderful. Chance specifically was really great. The room was clean and a good size. The breakfast area was one of the cleanest I have ever seen. The breakfast attendant was present and on top of things.

We can highly recommend the Best Western Chena River Lodge. It is clean, comfortable, modern, beautifully decorated, has a great breakfast, comfy beds and pillows, and cheerful, friendly employees. The latest trip was to help our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren move back to Fairbanks from Washington State. This is always our hotel of choice when in Fairbanks, which ..I think... More

Terrible experience! Blood on the wall when I checked in. Toilet wasn't cleaned. Soap and lotion wasn't filled. I asked multiple times for it to be changed and they wouldn't do it. They had a card to fill out requests and even though I filled it out every day, they still didn't do what I asked. The door knob was... More

All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is good with a Fred Myers right across the street and other restaurants and shopping not far beyond. I was a little concerned about airport noise but it didn't turn out to be a problem at all. Maybe because I had a room facing away from the airport? I just couldn't... More

Room was clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good. Excellent location for access to college campus. Stayed 2 nights and will stay here again on next trip to Fairbanks. Especially appreciated NON-SMOKING/NON-PET room.

the location right across fred meyer and 2 miles from the airport is great. The room was clean and nice. There are a couple reasons why I didn't give a higher rating. The full breakfast left alot to be desired, one morning there were only potatoes to eat for the hot breakfast. i stayed there in part so I could... More

The staff were great when we checked in, the breakfast ladies, and maid staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were there for 3 nights in October. The breakfast - for a free one - was actually very decent. When you consider it's included in the price of the room, it's a great deal. Breakfast was make your own... More
