We stayed one night on our own and 2 nights on a Trafalgar our. We paid for breakfast the first morning, about $14 each and the tour covered the other 2 days. Some rooms face the river but unfortunately ours faced the parking lot. We stayed in a cottage, simple but clean and the staff were friendly. The resort offered... More

We stayed in upstairs rooms versus cottages. We found the room airy, well-furnished, spacious. The staff was terrific: helping find things to do, transporting us. Delightful stay. Nicest place we stayed in our Alaska journeys.

We're spent one night at River's Edge. Very comfortable, very clean and the staff is very nice. The Internet wasn't very good in the room, however was okay in the reception. The restaurant was also good.

Stayed at this hotel from June 23-27 and was pleasantly surprised. The little cabins are about the size of a regular hotel room (possibly a tad larger) and very, very comfortable. The best part is you hear zero noise from your neighbors as these are individual cabins. They are very clean and reasonably up to date. Maybe a brighter color... More

We stayed at the RIver's Edge Resort and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and spacious rooms. We were fortunate to be given a place on the river. It has great views from the patio. There are no shared walls here. Each room is a small "cabin" with its own patio. The flowers outside of each cabin have been carefully... More

We really enjoyed this resort. The rooms were very nice, the staff extremely helpful and the hotel was very close to the bus lines which were convenient and easy to use. And as an added plus, seniors over 60 ride free! The restaurant at this hotel was a great place to have dinner and the hotel's breakfast buffet was really... More

A spur of the moment trip to Fairbanks to visit our son left us scrambling for a place to stay. While searching online, I happened upon the website for River's Edge Resort. With limited options elsewhere, I hoped for the best and booked a cottage. Our entire experience was well above expectations - the cottage was meticulously clean, the property... More

This was a last minute reservation and everything about this resort was wonderful. The cabins were spacious and very updated. The bonus patio off the sliding glass doors was great since we were lucky enough to set up our cameras and see the Northern Lights that night. The grounds were well maintained, walkways along the river were well lit. I... More

We had no idea what a charming experience staying here would be! Each "room" is actually a cottage or part of a cottage (separate entrances) that are well equipped, clean, and comfortable. We had two rooms, so we were one cottage as they connected. It's just a few steps to the river and you are surrounded by peaceful and pretty... More

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
