We would recommend this Best Western to anyone. They are friendly, helpful and the breakfast is really good. The staff go out of their way to help you and make your stay enjoyable. Whether your talk with the front desk, cleaning staff or staff attending the breakfast bar; they are all very helpful and nice.

We have stayed in many highly rated hotels around the world. This hotel may not have all the amenities of a posh hotel in Paris but it has everything you need for a great experience.

Stayed for 3 weeks. Room was always clean with fresh linens and towels, staff friendly, warm on cold snowy days,. No complaints. Used guest laundry and WiFi with no problems. Breakfast was great with good choices not just pastry and coffee ! Definitely will be back when business calls.

After a horrid stay at the BW across town we tried the Chena River Lodge BW. WOW what a difference! I wish we would have made the switch sooner. Hotel is clean, staff is beyond helpful and polite. Rooms are big and comfy, beds felt great, breakfast was also a big hit with a crew of a hungry hockey family....

I'm sure there are worse motels, but I'm also sure there are better motels. I'm a business traveler and stayed at this motel Saturday and Sunday nights because of the Best Western reputation and because it was off the beaten path near the river. Quiet. Wrong, there were partiers outside my window in the car with loud music until 11:00...

What a great stay anytime I'm there. Close to the airport, super friendly breakfast server. Friendly staff as well. The internet can be spotty especially if you have good security on your computer, which may be a good thing. They don't seem to have the most secure internet access.
