The cottages at Rivers Edge were plain and simple, but comfortable. The wifi signal was in transition to something new, so we had some challenges with it. Chena's restuarant was very good for lunch. The staff were outstanding, especially Andie the shuttle driver who went above and beyond.

The rooms are little individual cabins. Reasonable size room. Sink in the room. Open clothes bar in the corner of the room for a closet. Small toilet/tub bathroom. Outside table and chairs. Firm but jiggly bed. Loved that the river was right there to walk along. Old style small tv. Stayed 4 nights. Really enjoyed it.

This is a nice hotel that consists of nicely appointed Alaska cabins plus some rooms 8n the main building. We were in the main building in a large king sized room that overlooked some of the cabins and hotel grounds. The bed and pillows were wonderful and the room was very clean. The only negative was their breakfast buffet. The... More

We stayed here the first night of our cruise tour. From the first moment we stepped into the lobby, the staff were friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough for us. The cottage was a good size, clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and peaceful in and around the resort. We took the free shuttle to the Salmon Bake... More

This was an excellent way to finish our 11 day tour of Alaska's interior. The weather was in the high 70's during the first week of July which made sitting on our river front deck very enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and the shuttles were on time. I would not recommend the restaurant because of poor service and terrible... More

The manager was a great help to us when we were unable to keep our reservation! Because of recent wild fires in the Fairbanks area and having guests along who would not be able to tolerate the smokey conditions in the area, I had to cancel our reservation. By mistake we were still charged for the stay. One call to... More

We had a riverside cottage with a patio overlooking the Chena River. Patio was a nice place for morning coffee and muffins or an evening glass of wine watching the activity on the river (canoes, boats, etc.) Rooms are very small but okay for a couple of nights stay. Mattresses need to be changed out soon as they sag toward... More

We stayed in one of the cabins, they are clean, quaint and quite. Staff was very knowledgeable with helping get around. Shuttle runs most of the time although they don't run their downtown route when they have to go to the train station on or the airport so you could get stuck for a while. But they do tell you....

We stayed here as a part of a Trafalgar Alaska holiday. Although we were the first tour of the season, they were ready for us. The cabins were clean and well presented with all the amenities we needed, The staff were attentive and cheerful. This is a little way out of the city, but we had the coach and the... More

We booked this place via Alaska Tour and Travel. I expected a cute little cottage by the river but was greatly disappointed. My family and I were assigned one of a vast many buildings in the parking lot. The room itself had a decent layout but the place was filthy. The floors were sticky and I'm not sure if the... More
