The cottage on the river was wonderful. It was a perfect view, however there were so many spiders outside and in the patio screen we were not able to open the door. I told the room attendant and the front desk in hopes that they will rectify the problem so another guest does not have the problem. Even with this... More

We stayed at River's Edge Resort on the last leg of our Alaskan Trip this past June. We had no idea what it was like in Fairbanks. We strictly based our expectations on reviews and pictures. When we arrived at River's Edge using their free shuttle from the Alaska Railroad Depot, we at first were very dissatisfied with our cottage.... More

Unique concept for this beautiful resort incorporating private cottages rather than typical hotel floor plan of rooms by halls. Garden cottage where I stayed had 2 Queen beds with single bathroom, no kitchen but provided me with sense of seclusion and privacy. You also have a choice of rooms facing the Chena River offering a spectacular view of summer River... More

We wanted a comfortable place downtown to hang our hat for a staycation Birthday date. It was prime season and the Rivers Edge was at a very fair price point. We booked it in spite of some not so positive reviews. Thank goodness because we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff was beyond helpful, Especially Sadie at the desk who arranged... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. We were here for only two nights but I would have stayed longer. We stayed in a little house that had two comfy beds, a nice bathroom and an outside sitting area. Very clean. At the main lodge, where I believe there are rooms, there was a restaurant but we only went there... More

Stayed 2 nights in a Riverside cabin and enjoyed our stay. Very clean unit and well maintained Resort. Very friendly and helpful staff . Certainly well worth the effort to get out to stay at this place as it is a little out from downtown. The shuttles work well. Only downside is finding somewhere close by that serves reasonably priced... 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
