We came at night and it was a good experience but lighting into the springs is poor and You go step by step to feel your way in. Ok once you make it in. Maybe wear plastic sandals. Basic changing rooms which have a constant wet floor. Loved the springs. Very warm. Would have liked to see more of it... More

if you go here be ready for over crowding , , everything here seems to have a LONG waiting line for it , the folks who work here seem to be over worked some are quite short with people and have a little attitude going on , maybe because it is toward the end of the winter season & they... More

Completely off the grid with intact power system from the geothermal springs, many enjoy the relaxation of the hot springs - I was surprised to have the hair on my arms get frostbite and am not a fan of the sulfur smell but appreciate how much others enjoyed it. My biggest challenge was no gym - the pool was ok,... More

This experience is a delight akin to our experience at summer camp as children. It has bungalows, wonderful hot springs, northern lights and activities all day long to participate...including the hands-on dog sleds. We were there for 3 days/2nights in -20degrees focused on the Northern Lights and Iditarod. We shuttled in, no car, and found just enough things to do... More

This was my first time to the springs. It was very rustic and fun. The Hot Springs were something I have never experienced.... as you step outside in the -20 degrees and walk into these hot springs it is crazy awesome. We were lucky we saw the northern lights band and some shooting stars. Rooms were basic but clean and... More

Visited for a 2nd time. Wonderful. First time went during new moon (dark sky). This time intentionally went during full moon to view and photograph Aurora with the snow and trees. Frankly, I recommend the new moon. But you don't know until you know. Hot water outdoor pool still as great as ever. Also, stayed in the Moose Lodge this... More

This was my second time here. I love it. Seeing the ice museum is a must. The lil restaurant is cute, rustic and had good food and drinks. Clean rooms. Love the Springs. Feels great.

The hot springs were very refreshing even tho it was -27 deg F out in early March, the water was very comfortable. They keep it max 105 deg F and there are many bathwater warm spots we hung around in. We stayed in for an hour at a time though we had to dunk our head under to thaw out... More

The best Alaskan & Spa Experience. Great for the relaxing hot springs and spa services but also offer dog sledding, snow monolingual, and many other adventure type tours. Great place to do it all.

If you are anywhere remotely close to Chena Hot Springs GO! Just go!! It's worth the drive I promise. Rooms are dated but the views and springs are just amazing. Very romantic with the champagne and fruit waiting in the room. That was a package my husband arranged to surprise me. Can't wait to go back.

Thank Amber J
