TripAdvisor Rating


This newer hotel is in a great location on the banks of the Chena River, minutes from the Fairbanks airport and area attractions. Clean, comfortable rooms have two queen beds, plus space for a rollaway. Every room contains a refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, satellite TV and other standard amenities. The free breakfast is a big one, with eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fruit, pastries and enough to get your family going for a day of adventure. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, laundry service and an exercise room.

The hotel is close to several major attractions in Fairbanks, including Riverboat Discovery, an old-fashioned sternwheeler that offers a fun three-hour cruise down the Chena River. Just minutes away is Pioneer Park, the historically-themed amusement park that includes museums, train rides, miniature golf and 35 restored gold rush buildings. Your hotel is across the street from a large shopping center with plenty of restaurant and shopping options, and is only a few miles from downtown. With its great amenities, comfortable rooms and awesome location, the BEST WESTERN PLUS Chena River Lodge is a great base of operations for your family vacation in Fairbanks.

Hubby and I landed Fairbanks at 2am. The hotel 24hr airport shuttle was FANTASTIC! We just had to call the hotel after we landed and collected our bags. Ashley M came by in less than 10mins! She welcome us with a big friendly smile and sent us to the hotel where were greeted by the delightful Jessica. Thank you both for giving us such excellent and warmest service on a freezing November (3am) morning!

The Best Western Plus Chena River Lodge stay of 7 days was wonderful. The hotel was clean, quiet, and centrally located. The staff were all very helpful with any need we had. Our room was very clean and all amenities worked perfectly. We had a very pleasant stay and would be glad to recommend this hotel to anyone.
