Recent guest reviews

We have stayed here several times before but have never stayed in the cabins close to the road.Being an Alaskan that enjoys the quite all the other cottages we stayed in when quite and comfortable, but this time we were placed in a cabin close to the road and the road noise was a bit much. Would prefer the cabins further away from the road.Crazy that the noise level is so much different from the cottages further in the complex then the ones by the road.Otherwise we do love staying in the cottages but prefer the ones not by the roadway.

Beautiful location along the waterfront! The cottage itself was quaint, cute and actually quite spacious.

We have stayed here before and love staying in the cabins especially the ones closest to the river. The beds are super comfortable and it is close to food also.

staff at front desk best ever/well organized & helpful/the restaurant over looking the river served several varieties of fresh salmon/four stars

Staff was great, cottage was clean with a nice back porch with table, but had no mini fridge or microwave. Close to airport. Walking distance to many shopping stores. I have stayed here previously and would recommend it again to anyone.

Was surprised each room was an individual house separated from one another. So no connecting rooms, pleasant surprise. The $15 breakfast had a bit of everything something for everyone.

Special occasion turned very frustrating. We were rushed constantly and he insulted my Mom when she asked helper for more coffee. He had to come back to the table and rudely ask her why she didn't remember he had given her alittle pot? Really? She is older and has memory issues. He also interrupted our conversation more than once. Terrible service. Very disappointed I that aspect We wer in town for moms 60th reunion

Room was in excellent order, except our room lacked a refrigerator. None the less, it was comfortable and quite. the Rivers Edge restaurant has excellent service and fantastic food. My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay.

It was a nice little place. The buffet breakfast wasnt great. The restaurant on the river was unorganized and not seating until 530.. strange. Its cool but I think others are better.

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!

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.

This is an affordable option to stay on the scenic Chena River. The cottages are clean, bright, and cozy. No need to book a river side cabin as the "garden" cabins are a only a short walk away. There are a few restaurants and bars within a short drive and it is close to Fred Meyer and other shopping options. The front desk seemed inconvenienced by us booking online. Not sure what the issue was, but we felt like we had done something wrong without explanation. The cable came in really fuzzy, but we weren't there for the TV. It was just a quick one night stay so I can't say a lot about our experience, but I would stay there again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Site see and ate good food.Nothing missing it was great.Alot better.
