Arrived by train with shuttle bus waiting at the door. Arrived to find that the ground handler had not made a reservation for us (2 persons, travelling independently). The staff could not have been more helpful in resolving the problem and made a cottage available within half an hour after being vacated. They contacted the ground handler and resolved the... More

Having travelled from the UK on a three week motoring tour of the Yukon and Eastern Alaska you need a bit of R&R, and for us this was ideal. We had pre-booked a 'cabin' on the riverbank, which in fact we would call a chalet (not the Swiss type!). It was a good sized room with a seating area outside... More

We stayed here for two nights before our train trip to Denali. The cabins are comfortable and cute. There is an adjacent RV resort, which is also clean and well-run. Breakfast (which was mediocre) was not included. We did have dinner at Chena's and it was excellent. For the most part the staff are helpful, but it would have been... More

This resort consists of building with the lobby and numerous cabins. There is a restaurant off to one side. Each cabin has one or, in a few cases, two rooms. The rooms generally have two queen size beds. They are standard size for such accommodations. Many of the rooms have small patios with a small table and two chairs adjacent... More

Cruise ship put us up here at the end of our tour. Great location on the river. Nice to just sit and watch the river. The rooms are nice size, clean and we'll appointed. The staff, especially Jimmy, is extremely friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

River's Edge Resort includes a main facility and then several lovely cabins located along the Chena River in Fairbanks. The accommodations are very nice and the overall setting is peaceful and scenic. It's a bit out of the main part of town, but that's not necessarily a problem. Staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Great on site restaurant, as... More

One of best experiences while traveling in Alaska. The staff was very helpful. The privacy was great with the cottages. We were on the waterfront. The beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The cottages are cute and comfortable. Everything was very clean. They have a nice outside area with a table and chairs where we were able to enjoy our meals. The staff is very kind and helpful. They sell snacks and beverages at reception for a lower price than the machines. The shuttle was an... More

This hotel offered one of the best overnight experiences we've ever had in all our travels. Each room is actually a cottage so there is excellent privacy, the rooms are a bit larger than average, there is no noise from adjacent cottages, the climate control was very effective, and the bed was comfortable. The grounds and the cottage were clean... More

Staff is nice, cabins are clean, property is well maintained and groomes. Right on the waterfront of Chena River. Close to the airport, car rental companies and central entertainment / Pioneer Park and Riverside Discovery. Call ahead of check in and ask for the riverfront cabin - away from the slightly noisy road.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An afternoon on a sunny riverbank exemplifies the best of Interior Alaska; this place is built around that knowledge. Trim little cottages stand in a grassy compound along the gentle Chena River. Inside, each light, airy cottage is an excellent standard hotel room, with high ceilings and two queen beds. Outside, they're like a little village, where guests can sit on the patio, watch the river go by, soak up the midnight sun and socialize. ... more   less
