Best Western on Chena River was a typical hotel. Their front desk staff was friendly and helpful finding restaurants and tours to go on. They had no shuttle service but contracted with Yellow Cabs to pick up and deliver guests to the typical places: train station, airport, etc. Also they had a decent hot complimentary breakfast, but it does not...

We stayed here after we flew into Fairbanks. Though it was a short drive from the airport, we greatly appreciated the shuttle (taxi) service. The following morning, another free ride took us to the car rental place. After we drove the Dalton Hwy., we returned for a second night. The rooms were clean and spacious, the beds were comfortable but...

This is the nicest BW I've ever stayed in. The rooms are large and nicely decorated. The beds are wonderfully soft and comfy. Oddly, though, the pillow are not your usual standard size. They are a small pillow, about 3/4 the size of a standard. But, there are plenty of them. CON: the rooms doors are heavy, and if not...

We drove through an industrial area and then turned into a little forest. The road wound around and then there was the hotel. Nice room, good breakfast, quiet, everything we were looking for. And the rate was good, too.

This hotel is located about 1/2 mile from the airport which is where we rented our car. They don't have a shuttle service but they do have a taxi service to help transport visitors to and from the airport. This was just a convent as a shuttle. The staff were very friendly and gave us several helpful hints about where...

I was there in March 2015. (A few days before the Iditarod Race) I arrived in the wee, cold and snowy hours of the morning and was greeted with warm smiles from the front desk staff. When I asked about the best way to view the Aurora Borealis, the staff provided very useful local hints and tips. During my stay,...
