Fairbanks Alaska*s most unique hotel. Located in the heart of Fairbanks. AAA approved. The 14 acre landscaped riverfront is home to 86 private cottages each with riverfront or gardened courtyards for summer midnight sun and 8 executive suites classically designed at the central lodge. Chenas Alaskan Grill is your place on the river to enjoy breakfast lunch and dinner from our deck. Convention and meeting facilities for up to 200. Local interior Alaska and Arctic tours available with free transfers. Seasonal activities include canoeing float trips hiking and fishing guided by professional outdoor staff. Airport and Alaska railroad depot complimentary shuttle service. Open May to September. 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 where guests can fish for grayling. Inside each light airy cottage is an excellent standard hotel room with two queen size beds air conditioner heating ceiling fan telephone with voice mail coffeemaker hairdryer private bath. Each cottage has screened sliding glass doors that open to a private patio overlooking the river or the landscaped garden. Outside they are like a little village where guests can sit on the patio watch the river go by soak up the midnight sun and socialize.

Great

Great place for a family because you have your own cottage and you don't have to worry about your children keeping others up. Plus, its right by the river with places to sit, the environment was great. Hotels in Alaska are different and this is a great jewel!

Interesting and homey feeling

The front desk people were very helpful with suggestions of places to see and things to do. I was in the main hotel and it felt like being in a room in a house, cozy.

Close to the airport and major roads in town. There is a restaurant on sight that had an interesting menu, though I didn't have time to eat there

AK Local Tourist

Loved the Chena River at sunset with the ducks. Loved pulling up to cottage and unloading at cottage. No slamming doors or noisy upstairs or next door neighbors. Loved the silent cottage idea.

Nothing special

Hotel staff was friendly, but after complications with our reservations not being entered by the staff properly we weren't offered any upgrade or discounts. A good company treats its guests with the utmost respect and when a company makes a mistake they should reimburse their guest in some way. The cabin itself was fairly clean, everything inside reminded me of a Motel 6. The bedding was very old and outdated, the tv was ancient, the furniture was very worn, the mattress was extremely uncomfortable. Not a bad place for a Motel 6 price ($60-$80), they are just charging more than what it's worth at $130-$155. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Again on a positive note, staff was friendly and hotel was fairly clean.

Romantic Gettaway

We stayed in the cottages and they are very cute and quite sitting right by the Chena river. You can go out and sit by the river and spend time with your love.

Went over to the Chena grill which is within walking distance and you can eat and have a nice glass of wine and enjoy the river inside our out. Would recomment the appitisers since the dinners are about the same size. Food was good. Room was nice!

Beautiful vacation spot

The cottage was great. Very comfortable and great location. The staff was helpful and the resort offered a very good city tour. It was easy to find and there were stores and restaurants in the area for all of my family's needs.

Great place to stay.

Our stay was a one night stay over. Wished we could have been their longer. When staying in a new place one never knows when looking at the internet. But you won't be disappointed in your stay. Clean and dark on those long daylight days! Curtains do keep light out. The front desk gals, [...] and the younger gal, sorry can't remember name, were very kind and helpful.
