My only complaint is that the 24 hour shuttle wasn’t available when we needed it. We ended up taking a cab instead as the alternative was to wait 45 minutes for a shuttle from a sister hotel. Otherwise everything was good. I would stay here again.

Rivers Edge is ALWAYS my first choice when looking for a "hotel" in Fairbanks! Each cottage is private. It's quiet. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. I don't have to hear guests from adjacent walls or halls.
