This was the absolute nicest and cleanest Best Western we have ever had a chance to stay at. The complimentary breakfast area was tended to and clean. The staff were very friendly and informative about the area. This hotel was within a few miles of the airport. Would definitely stay here again.

The staff at this hotel were most helpful and pleasant. The location is most convenient to get around town. We were able to check in a little early which made a big difference for us. The working staff acknowledged that we were there by just talking to us in the halls and around the building.. Have stayed here before and...

Whenever I visit Fairbanks, either for business or to visit my family, I always stay at this Best Western. The rooms are fairly clean (I'm very very picky though) and it's convenient to town, Fort Wainwright and UAF. I highly recommend staying here.

Both unopened, new items that I had bought to take home...others who live in villages off the road system in Alaska will understand. I realized my mistake and called one hour after check out...

This facility is close to the airport. It was an excellent value and provided a convenient place to start a trip back to the lower 48. The facility is ordinary--not exceptional. The breakfast was almost tasteless.

Great hotel. Friendly staff who was willing to go the extra mile for you. A breakfast that delivers! Full variety of foods to choose from, not just bagels and toast. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Convenient location to airport and local area. Great choice if traveling to Fairbanks.

Full, daily complimentary breakfast was awesome!!! (Not just bagels and donuts, although they had these also if you wanted.) We're talking eggs every morning. Usually with bacon or sausage, oatmeal, fresh fruit, juice, toast, etc. The works! Parking was slim pickings if you stayed out late, but no one seemed to mind very much. The hotel is close to airport,...

Overall, I was very pleased with the Chena River Lodge. As other folks have mentioned, they had an excellent breakfast with a superb selection. Rooms were very large and comfortable and had all the amenities you look for in a mid range hotel. The downside was that the breakfast room was tiny and could no way accommodate all of the...

I stayed for two nights at this hotel very recently. It was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast was very good in the morning. I would definitely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends.

Very friendly check-in/out. Very clean room with attention to detail. Very comfy bed. Spacious room. Thank you for using wall dispensers for the lotion/shampoo/conditioner rather than those little individual bottles and reducing the usage of plastics! The most excellent breakfast ! Offering choices from fresh fruits, various cereals, breads/bagels, eggs,sausages/bacon,potatoes and on top of all that, the guest can bake...
