There aren't many choices when visiting Denali National Park so you take what you can get. The Princess Cruise Line has a beautiful newer hotel in the town but we did not cruise Princess, therefore, couldn't stay there. Not sure how that works if you're traveling alone & not affiliated with a cruise land package??? This facility is located on... More

There is simply no reason to stay anywhere else if you are going to Denali. If you are going to the Denali National Park, you must take in all in, by staying here. Some may say it is old, but that is all part of the ambiance. This is not meant to be a gourmet, posh resort. It's a lodge,... More

A great location overlooking the valley. Easy access to local attractions and restaurants. A must place to visit traveling through the park! We hit the perfect time for weather and sightseeing. Services were conducted with a smile.

We stayed in the Eagle Cabin. We loved the cabin; so cute and cozy. It had everything you could want or need and it was almost spotless.

The view from the restaurant of this lodge was fabulous. It is close to the entrance of Denali Park. The hotel itself is nothing out of the ordinary. it reminded me of "low budget" hotel, but we were paying resort fees. But, expect that in Alaska. The trip itself was phenomenal. Beautiful state.

Great views and very nice staff. The rooms, down a long straight hall are pretty much boxes on a cruise ship. Nothing special and no atmosphere in the rooms.

I guess we were lucky, the views from our room were just great. Also the room was clean and had a very comfortable bed...so that is all good. Unfortunately the room was hot and stuffy with the only way to try to try to do anything about it was to open the window...and that didn't seem to make much difference.... More
