A Very Nice Hotel!

Our three night stay in March was great! The only issue was that the room was too warm. This was easily solved by opening the window. We will stay here again on our next trip to Fairbanks!

Best value we had in a hotel stay in Alaska

Hotels are expensive during the summer in Alaska, and for the price the Best Western Plus in Fairbanks was probably the best value we had for our entire two week stay in Alaska. The hotel was very clean and in good condition. The room was large and the bed was nice and comfortable. The location was convenient (we had a car), and it had all the facilities we needed including a laundry machine. The included breakfast wasn't gourmet, but it was good and saved us time and money in the mornings. It even had hot options like eggs, bacon, and a make your own waffle station.

Best beds & rooms in Alaska!!

Just came off cruise/tour..15 nights which was very ,very good. When tour ended, checked into BW Plus Chena River Lodge. Were overwhelmedly suprised. I thought they had just opened..i.e. brand new hotel, but opened in 2008, per mgr. Room was large, super clean with top-of-the-line finishings, huge shower and the most comfortable beds (&softest bed linens!) of our whole trip (previous stays included the Fairmont and all the Princess lodges). We have not stopped raving. Breakfast was wonderful and fresh and the staff was so friendly & ready to help. This place really made our trip. Can't stop raving about it & will definitely visit again. Thank you!

Very nice

Hotel rooms in Alaska tend not to be up to speed as their "outside" counterparts, but this Best Western is on par, if not better than comparable Best Westerns throughout the USA. The staff, room comfort, "freebies" the decor are superb. Check in and out is very quick. Everything worked, towels and beds were super clean and changed upon request. You can not ask for a finer place to stay for the price.
