We stayed at Chena HS one night and that was enough. The location is pretty and the hot pool is interesting but we just felt like it was a bit overpriced for the experience. It was the most expensive place we stayed on our whole trip (which included Fairbanks, Anchorage, Barrow, Seward, Whittier & the Alyeska Resort!). Also, our older teens were disappointed they couldn't try the hot pool with us -- the staff told us Alaska law prohibits persons under 18 from being in a pool without chlorine, but another person told us later that's a bunch of hooey ... To be fair, our somewhat negative experience may have been influenced by a fire that occurred on the property the night before we arrived. The staff seemed down about it, which I completely understand, but I don't understand why we were given a room in an empty lodge building that looked directly onto the site of the destruction: hoses still cooling the ruins; why not the other side of the building? OH well.
