My wife and I own a travel agency in central Indiana (Cruise Planners - SmartTravel.Agency). We visited central Alaska to evaluate lodging and experiences for future group travel bookings. We stayed two nights at River's Edge Resort in one of their wonderful cabins. The rooms are the perfect size for a couple. We highly recommend staying here!

Stayed here a couple of nights as part of an escorter tour. I was plesantly surprised by how clean and comfortable these cabins were. Good matresses and nice touches like the musquito screens so you can keep open the window at night. Beautiful flowers, nice people in the lobby and ok breakfast. I had some laundry pins with me to help close the curtains because the nights are long and full of light in Fairbanks in the summer

Palmer, Alaska25 contributions2 helpful votes
Adorable, affordable, cozy, comfortable and clean cottages. Perfect for small families, couples or solo. Restaurant on site, breakfast available, river walk along the Chena. Bathroom on the small side but not an issue. Wifi and tv reception iffy but who comes to Alaska to watch tv? If you are working from your room, however, the wifi maybe an issue for you. It was perfect for my husband and I and our 7 & 8 year olds. We will be back!

Very nice room/cabin. Clean quiet and comfortable. There is no place in the area to get breakfast or even lunch . The on site restaurant doesn't open till 4. Tried walking to the local shopping area and all we found was Taco Bell and Arbys ( blah ). They do have a shuttle but there is not always someone to drive it.

Hello Robert D, Thank you for your comments and for choosing to stay at the River's Edge Resort in Fairbanks, AK. We do serve breakfast in the main lodge building each and every morning. So sorry that you were not aware of this. You are correct in that due to staffing challenges, we are not always able to shuttle folks to different restaurants in the area. Thank you for your understanding & support. Hopefully the labor market nationwide, especially in hospitality will be better next season.

Very pricey for really tight spots. Also, staff (lady with short frizzy hair) was rude as can be. Needed to do laundry and change machine wasn't workung. Wouldn't even give us a roll of quarters because she didn't want to touch money. Complete Nutjob. Go somewhere else...

Dear Ambassador561348, First and foremost, thank you for visiting the RV Park at the River's Edge Resort. So sorry that you thought the fees were high, however we can assure you that they are quite competitive, especially in today's environment, where all of our costs to operate have risen exponentially. With all due respect our team members including the one you mention are hardworking and kind individuals. It is unfortunate that your experience was not a favorable one and for that we are truly sorry. We do hope you will afford us another opportunity to host you at the River's Edge RV Park. Thank you.

Richmond, Kentucky12 contributions3 helpful votes
This is a wonderful place to stay. Picture a hotel room (very clean and comfortable) but in your own little cabin, complete with a patio and chairs outside. No kids running up/down hallways, no elevator or ice machine noises. Walk along the river to the EXCELLENT restaurant. There’s an RV park next door that you can walk through and around, filled with very friendly people. The attendants (Sally and Jessica) at the front desk are just amazing people, they make you feel like family. There’s also a good bkfst buffet available in the main bldg.

The driver that brought us was a very friendly and nice guy. There is also a nice place to walk along the river right near the rooms. It was a very nice landscape when you look at the river at sunset. It was a good experience and I would stay there again if I ever was in the area again.

Jeff M wrote a review Sep 2021
Harrison, Arkansas125 contributions18 helpful votes
My wife and I spent 3 nights at River's Edge prior to joining an escorted tour. CLEAN, simple but quite functional little cabins scattered along the river. Cabin had a desk, small eating table, fridge and microwave. Hotel provided a free shuttle from the airport, even taking me back later to pick up a rental car. Keep in mind that River's Edge is NOT really walking distance to restaurants, shopping, etc, hence the need for a car.(There is 1 restaurant on property, but only open evenings). All the hotel employees we interacted with were friendly, gracious, and seemed happy that we were there. The place is a perfect launch point for all the activities we did. HIGHLY recommend!
