Perfect spot on the riverPosted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: The cottages give you privacy while providing options for dining within walking distance. We also walked along the river which was quite nice.
Cons: Pathways across the driveways to bring luggage, a little bumpy on the gravel.
Location: Train to Denali was our destination-we did not explore Fairbanks.
We flew into Fairbanks and were picked up at the airport for a short ride to the Rivers Edge. Very cute private cottages, lots of hanging flower pots, clean rooms with outside tables to enjoy the patios. Had dinner at the Chena's Alaskan Grill which was a short walk from our place and can be reserved through the hotel site, good food-reasonable prices for a steak house kind of meal- and breakfast in the main lodge. Breakfast a little pricey for the buffet but good food, they have a continental option or full breakfast and they provide a shuttle to the train station. The only downside would be dragging the suitcases over the gravel driveway to the rooms but I am sure the staff would assist if asked. All in all a great start to our trip, should have booked two nights and explored Fairbanks more.

Private, cozy & quaintPosted Sep 10, 2013
Cons: Wish they were open in winter. Would be nice if they had a DVD player, but we used our computer instead.
Location: Excellent location, near the airport & Univ. of Fairbanks. Close to major stores(Fred Meyer, Safeway) and good restaurants. Easy access to major hwys.
We stayed 3 nights, in one of the garden cottages. It was quiet, spacious, and very clean. Everything was maintained & in excellent repair. We loved the individual patio, complete with table & chairs & a large hanging planter of flowers, and sliding glass door for access. There was even a row of bushes in front of the patio for more privacy. We felt like we were miles away from civilization, in our own little world! It was very pleasant to stroll around the grounds, with the garden-like atmosphere and white, tidy cottages. We would definitely stay here again, and wish they were open in winter!

Cons: new tv's and adding complimentary coffee in the lobby each morning

Liked the privacy of the cabins. The room was updated with the exception of the tv. Comfortable and relaxing. Great location to the UAF campus.

Good Room, Poor Service,Posted Sep 5, 2013
Pros: Nice and clean room
Cons: Quieter location would have been nice and a working heater/temperature control would be nice.
Location: Fairbanks Alaska. Chena Riverside. Boating, fishing, and all of the activities of Fairbanks are close.
Booking was for a riverside cottage, but when I got there they had overbooked and put me in the lodge instead. Nice enough room, but the thermostat did not work and it was directly above the kitchen. Which started preparing breakfast at 4 am every day. Loudly. Breakfast was not included, meaning an extra fee every day.

Memorable ServicePosted Sep 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
My cabin was very pleasant, clean and fresh. The bed was comfortable, the shower hot, the drinking water cold. The desk and chair were not optimally configured for working on a computer--this is the case in the majority of places I stay. I failed to connect to the hotel wifi using the security key given me at the front desk. Being very tired, I configured my phone as an access point rather than troubleshoot the hotel connectivity. Speaking of being tired, I left my car's headlights on and I will long remember the gentleman at the front desk jump-starting it for me. There is a fine restaurant, the Chena Grill, adjacent to the hotel and under the same ownership. Its ambiance and service are elegant and its food well prepared.

Quaint little hideawayPosted Sep 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The cottages were like private standalone rooms. Very clean and modern. The staff was wonderfully helpful, especially when some of my plans started falling apart, they knew the areas and helped me find solutions. Everyone was easy to talk to and the whole experience was comfortably accommodating. The one annoyance was that the wifi signal didn't always reach out to the outer cottages. It was perfectly strong in the lobby, and it was free, so a minor point and not one to ruin a pleasant stay.
