  • We only came to visit the ice hotel, but it was very cool. The resort looked like a fun place to stay too, but it didn't fit in with the schedule of what we wanted to do. Definitely worth a stop. It's also supposed to have amazing views of the Aurora Borealis in the winter too.
  • I love Chena Hot Springs. The rock pool is an amazing place to detox and relax. I love that they retiled the inside pool! I always get great service. We go about once a month. The restaurant is beyond great. Though a little over priced. 5 stars for sure.
  • Cell service is a bit spotty so be prepared for that. You can pay $8 for wifi access in the main lodge which can assist with reaching out to the outside world, however I'm not sure why you would want to. The hot springs are awesome! There is a Ridgeline hike to the south of the springs that isn't for the faint of heart. At the top you will get some the best star gazing I've had in years. All in all a must stop for a night at least. Staying there is totally optional if you have your own vehicle, however if I did go back I'd opt to stay overnight or maybe two nights.
  • I'm torn on what to give here. The hot springs are nice, but not great. The washroom was less then desirable. A bit dirty for the price you pay. The one down side is that if you camp here for $20 a night you still have to pay $15 to use the springs. For an hours drive from Fairbanks it's a nice place if you want to and plan to stay for a few nights. But for a day trip or just for 2 nights I'm not sure I'd return given the price of admission.
  • The location of chena hot springs is like nowhere else. Natural. And a city in itself. The rock pool, as well as the indoor pool is amazing, and because of those, I go there probably two or three times a year. I haven't done any touristy stuff there, nor have I utilized their hotel.
