The location is very good but the cabins are in dire need of updating. Great views of the river from the most expensive of cabins. The employees are sincere and very friendly, especially their shuttle driver "Gwen". She is truly an asset. Just make sure you do your homework before booking and know what you're paying for.

we were part of the Norwegian Cruise Line land tour, and when we first arrived our rooms were not ready at 1pm.... our luggage sat outside, of reception, dont know why they did not keep all our luggage inside reception, like they should have. Even after we came back from a late lunch around 4pm, we found our luggage still... More

We were on a 6 day Alaska Land Tour through Norwegian Cruise Line that started in Fairbanks. Once I knew which hotel they were putting us in, I booked it for the night prior since we were arriving in Fairbanks a day early. I booked a King Suite which is in the main lodge (they also have a lot of... More

I was amazed at the price of this room when I arrived in Alaska at 1:30A. The room was clean but it looked like it came out of the 1950s. Had some problems with getting from the airport to the hotel. I had to keep calling the desk to get someone to come and pick us up. I think it's... More

On a recent trip to Alaska we were booked into the River's Edge Resort after a flight from Anchorage. Due to an airline mishap we did not arrive until well after midnight. Upon ringing the hotel we were told the shuttle had ceased operation for the day so we were told to catch a taxi form outside the terminal and... More

We really enjoyed our two nights here. We were collected from the train station by a shuttle and taken to our lodgings. Each room is its own little bungalow and had character. The bungalow was very clean and comfortable. It was a short walk to the local supermarket and we were collected for all tours etc Wifi in the rooms... More

We had room 503 which was right next to the mechanical room so heard equipment running all night long. Room was adequate and clean. The restaurant was expensive. $12.95 for coffee and some fruit. The location is very convenient to the Fairbanks Airport.

Stayed at the Rivers Edge Resort for one night. Got into Fairbanks at 1050pm and called to have someone pick us up. Waited about 15 mins and it was a short 5 min ride to the resort. The room was within the main building, no elevators but it's only two stories with minimal rooms. The room was clean but needed... More

We booked a cabin by the river and it was great. Very quiet. Nice clean little modern cabin. Very quiet river and patio to sit and watch the water go by. Staff were friendly and helpful. It is a bit isolated and away from the city center but that is what we were looking for. We will be returning for... More

We stayed here as part of our tour with the Alaska Railroad. Very smooth operation with transfers and $5 shuttles into town. At least some cabins are older, but clean with very good restaurant on property. Nice location with walking path along river. Staff go out of their way to be accommodating.
