After a horrid stay at the BW across town we tried the Chena River Lodge BW. WOW what a difference! I wish we would have made the switch sooner. Hotel is clean, staff is beyond helpful and polite. Rooms are big and comfy, beds felt great, breakfast was also a big hit with a crew of a hungry hockey family....

I'm sure there are worse motels, but I'm also sure there are better motels. I'm a business traveler and stayed at this motel Saturday and Sunday nights because of the Best Western reputation and because it was off the beaten path near the river. Quiet. Wrong, there were partiers outside my window in the car with loud music until 11:00...

Very close to the airport, which was nice. Room was clean and shower had great pressure for working out the kinks at the end of the day. Was nice to have the fridge, microwave, coffeepot on hand. The self-serve breakfast in the morning was very tasty and it was great you offered both hot and cold items and a variety...

What a great stay anytime I'm there. Close to the airport, super friendly breakfast server. Friendly staff as well. The internet can be spotty especially if you have good security on your computer, which may be a good thing. They don't seem to have the most secure internet access.

All of the front desk staff were quite helpful and friendly as was the housekeeping. One of the women who seems to be in charge of the morning breakfast buffet during my stay (10/3-9/15) was especially kind and helpful. She always went out of her way to help anyone (including me) work any of the equipment (waffle maker, juice machine,...

Recently returned from a trip to Alaska where our first and last night were at the BW+ Chena River Lodge. Warmly greeted by Bella at Reception and our room was large, very clean and functional. It was slightly concerning that directly outside of our room there was a large hole in the wall! However it turned out that the previous...

The hotel it's self was nice. I like the attempts at being a little greener. Dispensers for the soap etc instead of little bottles, water conserving toilets. I liked the decor, wall mounted lighted make up mirror in the bathroom. But the room its self was not clean. The comforter had what looked like food on it, the heater had...

It is rare now a days to find hotels where the staff is genuinely caring but here at the Best Western Plus Chena River Lodge they show that they care. Super friendly staff.
