Best Western Chena River Lodge was an excellent place to stay during our several days in Fairbanks. It is close to the airport, offers a good breakfast, and the staff is helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again on future trips to Fairbanks.

This is a really lovely, comfortable reliable hotel to stay in for Fairbanks. The rooms were fine; the breakfast was fine...the only thing that upset me was that we arrived very late at night and had been told we would be picked up at the airport by their van. Once we landed, we called several times and after an hour,...

This was a great find for a couple of nights but do not understand why washbasins are located outside of the bathroom! And the pillows were too small. The breakfast was nice though not enough seating for everyone to cater for guests. If you do not have your own transport dinner options can be a bit limiting so be prepared...

The location is great, not too far from the airport. The building looks newer. In general, very clean, but found a stray hair on our pillow on arriving into the room. The staff are very cordial. There was a continental breakfast available during certain times and coffee/hot water available 24/7, the quality of which is fairly good. The breakfast wasn't...

The room provided us with a much needed break from some of the places we had stayed during the first part of our trip to Alaska. Finding a friendly place that was clean and comfortable was wonderful. Would stay at this Best Western anytime had the chance.

We were here for 6 nights. Centrally located and pleasant staff. After 6 nights the breakfast gets a little routine and all the pillows are small. We went to Fred Myers and bought a bigger pillow. What I really like about Best Western is that even though they have a little coffee maker in room, microwave, and refrigerator they still...
