Cute, roomy, clean cabins. Staff very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast is good but closes earlier than us late risers would have liked. On premises restaurant was very good for lunch and dinner.

A great little cottage but not close to town. The flowers are absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The onsite restaurant was excellent. We ate there both nights and eating outside was very special.

It was disappointing to have a cabin overlooking the main road when I had booked several months earlier.I had personally gone into the hotel several days before our stay to arrange a pick-up from the airport and, despite it being written in the diary, no one arrived to pick us up and we had to arrange our own transfer.
The cabins are really nice and well -equipped but there was quite a lot of traffic noise from coaches picking up Princess cruise guests - perhaps they had all the rooms away from the road!
The Chena restaurant was excellent and continental breakfast at the resort was a very good value $7.95.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road

This was a nice surprise. Individual cabins that were clean and private. Very good value for the money. Many of the cabins overlook the river. Members of the staff were very accommodating. Would recommend this place as a nice alternative to the hotel chains.

Comfortable and charming, wonderful staff, super lobby with very comfortable seating to relax and pass some time. Cabins are very nice , large enough, very clean... Was there during the heat wave, our AC was fine but some cabins not so good, but the staff took care of it by supplying fans which made it comfortable. Nice grounds along the river, great restaurant next door for dinner, great breakfast at the hotel,buffet and reasonable priced. Excellent WIFI.

Room Tip: Make sure AC is working well... A cabin along the river is a plus

This was our last overnight accomodation in Alaska. Right by the Chena river. The river's brown water is not really something to write home about, but the resort itself is nice and quiet, close to the airport, and offers a free shuttle service to different Fairbanks locations.
For us the big advantage was the closeness to the airport, where we could finally rent a car and do our own exploring at our own pace, for the last 24 hours in Alaska.
The breakfast was also decent and the staff friendly.

Cute little cottages by the river. Our room was clean and comfortable and the service was good. It's a bit noisy: I could hear the people and TV in the room next to ours. Princess Tours loads people on busses quite early in the morning, and it's hard to sleep through the noise. There is one restaurant nearby and it is quite good, but expensive. There are no stores or attractions within walking distance, but if you don't have a car, the hotel staff can help you arrange for a local shuttle to take you anywhere you want to go in Fairbanks.

Room Tip: Cabins that are far away from the lobby and main driveway are quieter.

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
