Positive Reviews

Easy access to restaurants, shops and attractions

Restaurants, shopping areas and the Palace Theater are a short distance away from the hotel. Within an eight-minute drive you can also reach Fairbanks International Airport as well as Carlson Center Event Arena and Pioneer Park.

Spacious and comfortable rooms

The guest rooms are well appointed and decorated with tasteful furnishings, clean and decked with comfortable beds. The windows are double glazed to keep out the roadway noise and guests reported that the showers have great water pressure.

Hearty breakfast

The hotel offers guests a complimentary continental breakfast each morning, which includes a variety of dishes. Guests reported that a selection of cereals and breads, pastries and freshly made waffles alongside fruit, eggs and sausages are offered.

Negative Reviews

Confusion with airport shuttle service

Best Western Plus Chena River Lodge provides a free airport transport service, however some guests found the system confusing while others reported that they were not clearly informed of how the service worked. Rather than having a hotel van, the hotel commissions particular taxi companies to transport guests to the airport transportation. Guests are advised to use only those companies or else fund the airport transfer themselves.

Air conditioning issues

Various issues have been reported by guests concerning the air conditioning system. Some guests found the air conditioning to be very noisy. Other guests reported having problems with the temperature where the room was either too hot or too cold and they had difficulty changing it.

Small breakfast area

The breakfast room is a small area and some guests reported that there is not always sufficient space to accommodate for all guests. Particularly during busy periods you may need to wait for a table to become vacant.
