This is a great place to stay. The 'rooms' are small individual chalets. We had one by the side of the river with doors out onto an individual patio area which had a small table and chairs. Breakfast is served inside the main building by extremely friendly staff. There is a restaurant on site (which we did not use) right... More

I usually give very favorable reviews, but this was a disappointment. We arrived on a busy evening off the Alaska RR train via the shuttle. Upon reaching the check in desk, we were surprised to find that they did not have our reservation. Here's a word of warning - always print your confirmation!!!! Fortunately I showed them my confirmation email... More

We really enjoyed our cabin next to the river. It was especially nice since there was some northern lights and you had easy access of being in the dark to look up toward the sky. The view was nice also. It would have been nice if they came with a small mini fridge and a small microwave. The lobby had... More

Each room is a separate cabin, and laid out around the parking and along the river. Clean, neat rooms, great buffet breakfast. Very helpful picking up at the train station. Flight tours pick you up from the hotel lobby. Didn't make it to the main gift shop over in the RV park. The restaurant on site was absolutely incredible! Best... More

I booked this hotel via hotels.com, which gives an overall impression of what to expect, but not enough to really know what you're booking. I was therefore pleasantly surprised when I checked in to find I had a little cottage all to myself! Unfortunately, it was not one facing the Chena River (ask for that if you book!) but nevertheless,... More

We arrived here for 2 nights as part of our driving tour around Alaska. We were slightly worried after seeing the serried ranks of huts - shades of Butlins in the 1950s! (You probably need to be British to understand that!). However, the 'huts' were well-appointed, clean, comfy and of a good size. One advantage of being in a hut... More

Cabins were clean and neat as a pin location is great if you're in Fairbanks and the Restaurant was the best food I had the whole time I was in Alaska. I will definitely going back here. Went with Premier Alaska great company to book a tour through especially if you like group travel. Ross is the best and Jackie... More

The hotel has a prime spot located right on the Tanana river and close to both the airport and the Riverboat Discovery tours although a taxi ride from Downtown Fairbanks, in fact the hotel has a free shuttle to Downtown. The hotel was spacious and clean and the staff were always helpful.
