If you like "motor lodge" cabins on a scenic River, you'll love this place! Cabins were small, clean, comfortable, with minimal amenities, and a bit away from the town. Not a problem if you are driving, but having to rely on a paid shuttle to get anywhere else was expensive and time-consuming. They do have a shuttle, but only to... More

First impression was great. The hotel shuttle was already at the airport when we arrived. In no times we were at the hotel. Check-in took for ever. Only 1 of the 3 person was experienced, the other ones on training. The décor is very nice. We had a cabin facing the river. Furniture is below average. Cheap $3.00 Wallmart plastic... More

Arrived at 2pm, turned away till 3pm. Apparently no matter where the weary traveler has come in from they are SOL till the strictly enforced 3pm check in. Was then told I couldn't have a cottage by the water because it was an 'upgrade.' I would have gladly added to my prepayment had she attempted to sell it to me... More

We were only at the Rivers Edge for one night, departing the next morning on the train to Denali. The cottage we were in was clean and well-appointed. But the best feature was the black-out curtains..."Land of the midnight sun" after all! Here's the above and beyond part: my wife got a selfie stick for her iPhone for our trip.... More

The individual one bedroom cabins were great. Especially if you are lucky enough to have a cabin riverside. We though the breakfast buffet was a little high but we found everything in Alaska high. The staff were friendly and took care of all our needs. There is a free shuttle to the a/p as well. Pricy by "lower 48" standards... More

This is a cute place on the river. I was really looking forward to staying here from the reviews it sounded wonderful. We spent two nights here before joining a cruise tour Downtown. We did not have a car as they had a restaurant on site and we were going to rest and relax prior to meeting the tour group.... More

My wife & I started our Alaska trip with a night's stay @ River's Edge. The cottages are located along the Chena River not far from the airport. The cottage was clean & the beds comfortable. There is an excellent restaurant next door but it only serves lunch & dinner.

Stayed here one night, before starting a group trip. It is a large property with a lot of cabins. Close to shopping and a restaurant (walking distance) but not in downtown. We had a basic cabin, (#186) which was clean and comfortable, nothing special. Had a big empty planter close to our door filled with recent rains, probably not a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An afternoon on a sunny riverbank exemplifies the best of Interior Alaska; this place is built around that knowledge. Trim little cottages stand in a grassy compound along the gentle Chena River. Inside, each light, airy cottage is an excellent standard hotel room, with high ceilings and two queen beds. Outside, they're like a little village, where guests can sit on the patio, watch the river go by, soak up the midnight sun and socialize. ... more   less
