A decent place to stay for a couple nights. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Good service and a nice breakfast! The one concern was the shuttle buses should be routed differently. Shuttles come in and out all night right outside the Main Lodge and were left running for long periods of time so we did not get very good sleep. It appeared that if you would stay in some of the cottages this could be avoided.

First of all, let me say the highlight of my stay was having my own cabin/bungalow. I didn't have to share a wall with anyone, or hear their television! The room was perfect size and cleanliness, had an air conditioner, a ceiling fan, a tv that worked, and a sliding door in the front of the cabin that let to my own patio, complete with a table and two chairs. The staff was friendly and the resort is about 0.8 miles from Fred Meyer, with the safety of a bike path. The wifi worked fine from my room, and the front patio. Since I was traveling with a tour, we received vouchers for breakfast, which was really a great spread. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Get a cabin!

A collection of small, one-room cottages along the Chena River. After the initial pleasant surprise at the quaintness of the cottages (versus ordinary hotel rooms), there is not much to write about. Close to the airport, but far from everything else. The room is spacious and clean, and gives the ambiance of a Best Western's, There are 2 double beds, a telephone that cannot connect to the front desk, a foyer with 2 deck chairs, and a hanging pot with colorful flowers. The coffee provided in the room is the worst coffee I ever had. There was nowhere to buy or get other coffee in the lobby area. Staff was there, but not really.

We didn't stay in the cottages though they looked nice. Staying in the main building was nice. Within 2 miles of airport and University. Nice gift shop and eating area. Overall comfy friendly stay. If we were to go back to Fairbanks we would do it again, right on the river.

We arrived 4am. Ontario time to the sun rising it was 12 midnight there. A beautiful cabin awaited us, very clean room and welcoming sense. the complex was very nice, very quiet and a duck had made a nest out front of our cabin and welcomed us also. Good food in the dining room for breakfast, another restaurant close by for lunch and dinner with very good food and choices and decadent desserts. Meals were expensive but the food was delicious. Staff was great and they took us on a Fairbanks tour it was our highliget while there. the chena River was cresting from the spring run off. Lots of kayakers.

Room Tip: A room on the river bank would have been more scenic but not better in standards.

We stayed here as the final destination of our Princess cruise tour. The unique one bedroom, one bathroom cottages are lined side by side. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The one we stayed in appeared to have a new coat of paint. In room Wi-Fi and limited cable was included. The resort had a breakfast area in the main hall and a diner across the parking lot. There is a small patio with a table and plastic chairs separated by a hedge from the parking area which gave a sense of privacy for outdoor seating. I would stay here again independent of the cruise tour

We spent one night in early June 2011. Cute little cottages there. The GPS had problems finding the place but we enjoyed it. The breakfast buffet was a little spendy but good.

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
