Cute place right on the river. Most accommodations are double cabins, all with patios. Rooms are very large & clean. Romantic. Need a little updating. Ask for a river's edge cabin. Main building has a great lobby with a lot of comfy seating. Grab a free coffee, buy a book & snack at the lobby gift shop & relax! The...

We stayed in River's Edge Resort for two nights in September. The cottages are very cute, decorated nicely and the beds are comfortable. Not quite as private as you would think when booking-they are very close together, and the little patios have no fencing or anything. The other drawback was that the bathroom light is on a timer and incredibly...

We arrived in Fairbanks via Delta Airlines and were promptly met at the airport by the provided shuttle service. Our bags were loaded and placed in our room while checked with the front desk! The Rivers Edge provides excellent shuttle service to-from the airport, the museum, downtown, the Riverboat Discovery etc. etc. Great service and earned tips. The motel has...

Looking for a place to stay while you are on your summer vacation to Fairbanks Alaska? Check out the cute cottages at Rivers Edge Resort. They are close to the airport, close to town and have a private spot on the river for that quiet out of town feel. Our cabin was clean and tidy but they have been here...

I really want to give this place a higher rating. I love the concept: small cabins. However, for the price it could and should be said that things need a boost. Maybe 10 basic channels on TV?! Come on, nowadays everyone has upgraded to dish or a somewhat better and more expansive channel set than this place. The white blanket...

This park is conveniently located but it really has gotten run down. Please clean the laundry room....really clean it...what my grandmother called "deep cleaning". It is pretty grimy. The sites are okay but nothing special here.

I WOULD have rated this 4 star BUT housekeeping kept barging in on us!!! We stayed 3 days. It was clean. Other cottages are only 3ft away with no fences though. However, e.v.e.r.y. Morning housekeeping is banging on door around 9 am and every 10 minutes subsequent and rearing to get in. The last day I was in the shower...

Stayed there in September 2016. Loved the individual cottages and the private patio. Breakfast buffet was very good, as was the restaurant which is located in a building next to the resort. The front desk staff was friendly and most accommodating. If possible get a cottage with patio facing the river. The location of the resort is close to airport...

First off--BEST breakfast of entire trip. You pay 14.95 but it's phenomenal. The cottages are very cute and very quaint. The decor is a little dated and I'm a hotel snob but I really enjoyed it. It was very clean. Shuttles to and from airport. Janet was exceptional. She helped us find activities, called places for us and was so...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An afternoon on a sunny riverbank exemplifies the best of Interior Alaska; this place is built around that knowledge. Trim little cottages stand in a grassy compound along the gentle Chena River. Inside, each light, airy cottage is an excellent standard hotel room, with high ceilings and two queen beds. Outside, they're like a little village, where guests can sit on the patio, watch the river go by, soak up the midnight sun and socialize. ... more   less
