Worst WIFI we experienced in our 4 weeks in Alaska, We found our room hot and stuffy...and no way we could adjust the temperature except to open the door....and this made very little difference.not good enough. Breakfast at $18 each irrespective... More

Stayed there in September 2016. Loved the individual cottages and the private patio. Breakfast buffet was very good, as was the restaurant which is located in a building next to the resort. The front desk staff was friendly and most accommodating. If possible get a cottage with patio facing the river. The location of the resort is close to airport... More

First off--BEST breakfast of entire trip. You pay 14.95 but it's phenomenal. The cottages are very cute and very quaint. The decor is a little dated and I'm a hotel snob but I really enjoyed it. It was very clean. Shuttles to and from airport. Janet was exceptional. She helped us find activities, called places for us and was so... More

Stayed by the river. Beautiful. Very clean, people were great, grounds were very well maintained. The restaurant was very good, prices reasonable and the bar had brandy and the bartender knew how to make and old fashioned. Wish we had time to spend a few more nights and watch the Northern lights from our patio door.

The cottage was very spacious and very comfortable. We asked the front desk to call us if they saw the Northern Lights. On the second night we received a phone call at 12:30am that the Northern Lights were starting. We went outside and saw this wonderful array of color known as the Northern Lights. If it wasn't for the front... More

Comfortable separate cottage for each couple/family set close to the Chena river with a lovely riverside walk. The flower boxes are beautiful. The rooms are quaint but functional. Lacking a fridge. Plenty of spacve for luggage. Handy shuttle service. Really great restaurant ranked #2 in fairbanks on the property. Service was excellent.

Not what I was expecting, but nice. All the cottages look pretty much alike so make sure you are at the right one before entering. We had a private patio that I think I would have loved to sit out at if we had more time. The people were very nice & helpful. A breakfast buffet was available in one... More

We were treated to a quaint college - comfortable. There was a walking trail along the river beyond the cottage. This was a super location for exploring Fairbanks with good access to a freeway. The main lodge personnel were helpful with directions, things to do, maps, etc.

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
