Wonderful location, beware the cruisersPosted Jul 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms are all individual, nearly brand-new cabins. The only negative was the hoardes of cruise ship passengers who swarmed the lobby and all the common areas, including the restaurant next door. It may be worth a call in advance to see if it's boating high season before you go.

A different kind of motelPosted Jun 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Kinda neat that we had a cottage to ourselves. Doesn't mean it is any bigger than a regular hotel room or that it has more amenities. I was disappointed that there was no mini-fridge. The room and bathroom were in good condition and clean. Good black-out curtains for those bright Alaskan summer nights!

Great option in Fairbanks.Posted Jun 26, 2013
Nice little gem in Fairbanks that could easily be overlooked. Good restaurant on grounds and all the offerings a box hotel could offer. Cottages were sparkling. Staff was courteous and helpful. I'd recommend to anyone!

Lovely cottages on Chena RiverPosted Jun 24, 2013
Pros: Location, cleanliness
Cons: Wi-fi was very intermittent; had to connect, frequent dropping of signal
Location: We were there for an event at Pioneer Park, which was 5 minutes away.
Overall this was a great place to stay. Very clean, comfortable, and convenient. There was no breakfast included, though it was available for $7.95-$12.95; coffee was free. Restaurant was very good, wide selection, and nice outdoor seating. Loved the cottage, quiet and private, and the staff was very nice. However, wi-fi was intermittent, and TV had poor quality picture.

Very nice, but not the wildernessPosted Jun 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was clean and convenient. Airport shuttle service was the best I've experienced. A major bike path runs right by the hotel that can take you anywhere you want to go. The room was roomy and everything seemed new. All the staff were very friendly and helpful 24/7. Its not a Ritz Carlton, but it exceeds all expectations. The only caution is that this is not the Alaskan wilderness. If you want experience the wilderness you need to go far from town, with Denali being an excellent option. Also, there's a bit of noise from a major road nearby.

River front spotPosted Jun 4, 2013
Pros: The set up, cabins rather than rooms.
Location: West of the town center and visitors would probably be best served hiring a car.
We stayed at Rivers Edge Resort for two nights in May. It is set in a nice setting by the river and is arranged as a number of small cabins, which we found to be unusual but worked well. Fairbanks itself is quite spread out so my only recommendation would be to hire a car for your visit to get around but while we were there we were quite busy and secured a couple of pick ups and drop offs with our activities so it wasn't so much of an issue.

Great for No Nonsense TravelersPosted May 25, 2013
Pros: Short distance to car and the Chena river (which has a walking trail alongside).
Cons: Refrigerator and microwave would be nice but definitely not a deal breaker.
Location: The location is great because it is near the airport, but out of the main stream of Fairbanks (and right on the river).
I have stayed at River's Edge twice and have really enjoyed it both times. I stayed in the cabins both times, so I can't comment on the hotel portion. The first time I stayed in the cabins I was able to park my car right out the front door (literally like 10 feet from my door). Since I had done alot of shopping and had lots to carry in the room this was perfect. This time I was able to stay at one of the cabins right by the Chena. This meant walking a little further than 10 feet to my room but definitely not as far as trudging through the lobby of some big chain hotel, up the elevator and then down a long hallway. More importantly I was able to lay in my bed and view ice floating down the Chena under a light snow fallen sky. I've lived in Alaska 13 years and am still amazed at the beauty God has portrayed in Alaska. I will also say that the staff was super friendly. The young man and young woman at the desk were pleasant and eager to help if I had needed assistance.
