Nice drive here though it took a few hours from Fairbanks. Saw moose along the way. I got my car stuck in the dog sledding lane as I followed a misplaced sign. The staff were so kind to pull me out. Apparently they're used to those I only stayed one night as it is expensive. (Minimum $200 plus tax per...

My friends and I booked the Midnight Aurora Chena Tour for $260 each. It was a bit pricey but I loved the overall experience. Enjoyed the Ice Museum, hot springs and of course the Aurora Borealis tour!

Relaxing is a skill which does not come easily to some. This is a good place to work on it. The drive to this place, commencing at the Chena Delta by the airport (where this flows into the Tanana River) is a study in elevation and the Alaska countryside. After a bit, off the main highway of the Steele, one...

Hot Spring - My friend and I booked the place for its popular hot spring, we visited mid April which was not a very busy season so we got to enjoy the place a bit more. The facility could be a little dated but it has a corridor with heap lamps on the ceiling towards the hot spring so you...

This is a "Rustic" resort. Remote in Alaska, it has basic creature comforts but don't expect much. We stayed in the Moose Lodge, the better of the facilities there. We left after one night for a variety of reasons. 1. The room security was poor; no deadbolt, just a simple handle lock that could be jimmied with a credit card....

Didn't stay in the hotel but drove up from Fairbanks to take a swim. Inside pool is blah. There is a hot tub outside but the jets don't work. The main pool outside is good and the water is nice and hot with a great view. Gravel base and rock surrounds to give it an authentic feel. But $15 to...

Drove up from Fairbanks, a very easy three hour drive with stops along the way , spotted Moose. Didn't stay over night , but when I do return will do so. Yes it's very popular, yes there are lines for dinner, lines to buy activities, but don't let that put you off. Spent and amazing day at the resort, the...

We stayed there 5 nights with the goal of seeing the northern lights and enjoying some time snowshoeing, skiing with a little dog sledding thrown in. On the plus side, our room in the Moose lodge was clean and comfortable. It was very basic for the price, but we were prepared for that based on the reviews here. The food...

My friend and I wanted to see the Aurora Borealis so we timed our visit to co-incide with the high-probability couple of days of seeing it. We were here for 4 nights and every night we did see the lights! That in itself is worth the long trip. The resort: it is rustic but not nearly as rustic as I...

We only visited for the day so this isn't a review of the rooms. First off the restaurant is wonderful, the food and service excellent. The hot springs looked very inviting but we didn't go in. That being said the place was packed with really loud rude people and the poor staff seemed overworked and exhausted. While waiting for our...
