Expensive but worth every penny Food is served family style. Hiking was wonderful with very knowledgeable guides. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Ride there and back was spectacular. Saw lots of wildlife

A once-in-a lifetime adventure that I can't wait to experience again. The quiet setting is soothing to mind and body. The excursions offered are varied and surely provides something for everyone. It exceeded my expectations.

Rooms, common areas, staff, food and activities are all top notch! Would stay here again and recommend without hesitation. Charter bus to and from the lodge is very comfortable with spectacular views and great information from the drivers. Snack break along the way is a nice treat too.

A once in a lifetime experience and location. The furthest you can go into Denail. Accommodations and food were fantastic Would recommend to anyone. I had a moose encounter while mountain biking i was very exciting to say the least. Meals are included family style you really get to know the people staying there it's great!

Great location but very basic accomodation with no tea/coffee facilities and no views from the room , just a basic pine room and very very expensive. We stayed two nights and the food was lovely one night and very ordinary the other night. Hugely disappointed. They have a monopoly and they make the most of that. Bus trips were great...

The lodge was fine. Just not as wonderful as I expected. Our room was clean and comfortable. The food was OK. We took a hike from the Lodge that was nice. The view from the porch was lovely. The Lodge was fine, but it is pricey. Just not sure it is worth the price. This stay for us was part...

This review is really about the travel agency Alaska Denali Travel, which owns the Alaska Denali Lodge (TA doesn't allow reviews for agencies themselves for some reason). I was attracted to them for their great colorful brochure, which I ordered but they also have available online. They have some trips in the brochure, or you can customize the trip however...

As majority of the large groups visiting Denali Park, we had a lunch break at this lodge after having driven into the park for around 5 to 6 hours. It's in the remotest part of the National Park, nothing else around, just the nature and the cabins, either to lodge or eat. As there is no civilization around the lodge,...

Took a long bus ride on a school bus type bus to the lodge. Driver stops for wildlife. Unlike many national parks, cars are not permitted all the way to the end of the park road . It is a long day on bus, but many stops when wildlife is spotted, and rest stop at very backcountry "potties". The lodge...
