Let me start by saying that this hotel has excellent customer service; from the moment we arrived at the train station, they sent shuttle to pick us up, then they gave us a suite in the main building, the room was big and spacious but a little date and a big bathroom. Very clean. Gwen at the front desk helped... More

We had our own little cottage right on the river. The cottages were clean and well maintained and they all had flower baskets which made it quite cheerful and picturesque. The lobby area was a little dated but clean. It was right next door to a fish restaurant that was pretty good and had a very nice patio overlooking the... More

This was the first hotel on our 3 week trip through Alaska. It was truly a nice way to start our trip. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and called for a shuttle pick-up, however, other guests took our shuttle spots. River's Edge told us to take a cab and have to driver come in so they...

We stayed one night at the River's Edge Resort in Fairbanks in August, 2015. This was the first night of our Norwegian land tour, prior to our Alaskan cruise. We arrived mid evening after a long day of travel. We were very pleasantly surprised to find we had individual cabins on this property, complete with BEAUTIFUL hanging baskets on our... More

River's Edge Resort is a wonderful place. Every room is a lovely little cabin all to itself. Many have a patio facing the river. Charming, rustic in tone, but modern in execution. And the staff is delightful! They were into looking after our special needs.

Calming, peaceful, a little world of its own. We spent three nights in one of the cabins which inside appear like a regular motel room but each has its own private little table and chair area outside. Beautiful floral baskets welcome guests to each cabin. In a large room inside the main lodge, you may pay extra for a continental... More

We stayed here the first two nights of our Alaskan vacation, and it was adequate. If you are looking for a particularly nice place, though, be advised that the room furnishings are a bit plain, though functional. Especially if you don't have a car, I suggest you keep looking. The room was comfortable enough but nothing special; I have no... More

The resort is a series of small cabins along the rivers edge together with a central reception and breakfast room, plus an on site restaurant. They also cater for RVs. The cabin we had was smallish but plenty big enough for two of us - some the cabins appeared to be larger and presumably catered for more guests. The place... More

Rooms are cabins. Very large, two queen size beds and a desk. Big bathroom. Plenty of hot water. Shuttle service to town. We had a flight out before the shuttle driver came on duty so the Resort hired a cab to get us to the airport and they paid for it! Will definitely stay again.

We were two couples and they put us in smaller units that were joined. Rooms were not ready when we arrived at 3:00. After our first night we went sightseeing until 2 PM, but rooms had not been cleaned when we returned. We never did get wireless, even after going over to the main desk to get help. Had to... More
