3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first stop (for 2 nights) on our 7 day Alaska land tour. This lodge is an acquisition and conversion of a competitive lodge. The exterior and the interior don't have a lot of "character", and are somewhat austere in appearance. It is located right on the banks of the Chena river, so the outside view is great.... More

This was our first stop on the land portion of our Princess Land/Sea trip. The room was small, but clean with a comfortable bed. Staff members were polite and efficient. My only concern was the daylight that lit our room all night. Since many parts of Alaska experience 22 hours of sunlight during the summer months, I mistakenly expected room... More

Arrived to find that the heater / ac unit was broken - they must have known! Eventually given another room but the whole process took far too long. Dinner was so/so but my wife's meal was too not hot enough and had to be sent back - no excuse for serving warm food. Breakfast the next day was very good... More

We enjoyed our stay. Nothing fancy but no problems either. We would definitely go back! Food was expensive! Location was not great but since we were on a tour transportation was provided for us. Our room was on the 2nd floor front part of lodge so very convenient to everything. Friendly service.

We were provided a nice rustic room for our honeymoon we believe, but the other couples in our group had average rooms. It had a nice dining room with a great breakfast buffet as well as a restaurant on the back deck overlooking the river. Not much is around there, but it's a nice place to base yourself for excursions.... More

We stayed at a cabin, not first row by the river, but just behind. The room and bath were very clean, and comfortable. Front desk clercs friendly and helpful regarding local information. We spend the 4th of July week end here, with great weather, so enjoyed the out doors and terrace dining. It is very reasonably priced also. Would definitly... More

We stayed at this lodge as part of a Princess Cruise Tour. We arrived here after staying in 3 other lodges in much prettier parts of Alaska; so the surrounding just weren't that pretty in comparison to the other places. If we had started in Fairbanks, we would have been more impressed with it. The room was a size modern... More

Stayed here as part of a tour. Nice rooms. Just ordinary. Could use more easily accessible outlets. Clean. Nice front desk person (Jack) who gave good advice. Very friendly. Close to airport. We went in town on shuttle. Should have stayed at hotel to enjoyed the river. Sketchy downtown. Drunks and addicts on street. Almost hit by drugged drivers who... More

Seems we were not alone in thinking this was the best of our 3 Princess lodge stops in Alaska. We had 2 nights here before heading home. Room was comfortable and relatively clean. We ate on the decking area both evenings and really enjoyed the food. Service was a little slow as it was very busy and staff were new... More

We stayed in a river cottage 2 nights and found it to be great for our needs. The room was very clean and staff were very helpful. Really enjoyed our stay! The restaurant next door was very handy and had the best clam chowder!
