I wish people would remember this is a 'wilderness' resort and not expect a 5 star resort in the wilderness of Alaska. My husband and I had a great time. Tony who checked us in and gave us a map of the compound and was very pleasant. We had a great experience in the restaurant with good service and some... More

This hodgepodge "resort" is a collection of unconnected buildings. Check-in occurs in the building where the restaurant is located. The check-in line was long and slow. The desk clerk who checked us in did not make any attempt to welcome us or to readily answer our questions. The only thing she did want was for us to buy the wifi... More

We were given a gift certificate for a one-night stay at the Hot Springs valued at over $300.00. We had not been to Chena Hot Springs in over 10 years and was looking forward to a relaxing, overnight stay. Unfortunately, the check-in person was rude (unusual first name) and very short with us (and with the other party checking in... More

The Hot Springs are amazing. Entry is $13 for adults all day pass. There are showers to rinse off after enjoying the springs. Afterwards we had dinner at the resort restaurant. They had fun drinks, aurora borealis and moose juice. Visited the gift shop which had the typical gifts and shirts for their resort. Definitely a place to see if... More

We did a day time hot springs tour with Northern Alaskan tour company by Ben Boyd. We did not stay at the resort. Trust me, when it's below freezing with a snowy landscape, these natural hot springs are an awesome experience. We spent more than an hour. Good locker room facilities. Worth it!!

Back in 2008, my wife and I came here for the first time and actually stayed in one of the rooms. Since it's been over 8 years, I can't attest to the quality of the rooms today, but can talk about the pool since we have visited that about 5-6 times since. In 2008, the locker rooms were dirty, dark,... More

We enjoyed the place a lot, with nice hot spring great relaxation, people were nice and perfect flowers also. Additional excursions into power-plant, ice museum, and vast opportunities for workshops with ice or to see animals. We heart various mixed feedback, about the place, but for us we were happy are definately visited this place

Check in process was a nightmare: she told us where our room was and offered no help with luggage or advise if we could drive our car closer to the room.

This was the biggest waste of time in Alaska. This is more like a church camp, rooms like a bunkhouse, and the springs enclosed in a cement pond. The staff there were all very rude or just complacent. The ice "museum" was ok, not great, but definitely not worth the drive. Very disappointing!

We took advantage of this deal and it was worth every penny. First of all the hot springs is AMAZING! I didn't want to get out. The sulfur smell is not all that bad. The only thing I didn't like was people leaving their trash all over the boulders. The Aurora Borealis came out around 1240 they have staff that... More
