None of our 2 traveling couples had been to Alaska. Since we wanted to experience the rugged parts and explore, we booked at the Road House based on recommendations. This was to be the front end of a two week visit with a cruise. Our 3 night stay was perfect. One needs to be here for at least this amount... More

Staying at one of the lodges in Denali Park is taking a gamble: Denali Park in July and August is mostly cloudy at best and rainy most of the time. When we stayed we had the good luck of one clear morning when we could see Mt Mc Kinley In July 2014 the Mount was seen only on 2 days.... More

We stayed here for three nights in mid-August and HIGHLY recommend Kantishna Roadhouse to other travelers. What may not be clear is that your 6 hour bus ride into Kantishna, any hikes (lunches for hikes), guides, side tours, evening talks and, of course, food are all included in your stay. The bus ride is full of spectacular scenery, plenty of... More

what a neat place! we stayed here for two nights as part of our add on excursion to a cruise. it was a wonderful and completely different experience- staying inside the park while most stay in hotels near the park entrance. the five hour bus trip to the lodge from the train station was worth every photogenic moment. Lodging prices... More

What a rip-off. Clearly the company with the operating concession cares nothing about the clients and only about the bottom line. If you must stay in Denali, stay somewhere else. Or be prepared with your own food, amenities, satellite phone. And sense of humor. The staff certainly takes the piss with their condescending attitude.

We stayed here in early June for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The accommodations are pretty basic, as you would expect for a remote location. I found the food to be just fine, although you were limited to two choices at dinner. The location is unparalleled. What made the Roadhouse special was the staff. They couldn't have been... More

The Kantishna Roadhouse is the last stop for the bus into the heart of Denali. Guests are taken there from the Park entrance on a breathtaking 90 mile bus journey. If you are lucky, you will be on a bus named "Charlie", driven by Christine Shields. She is the most charming, funny, and knowledgeable guide imaginable, and is a great... More

Very nice place, your own cabins, we panned for gold went fly fishing. This is a beautiful,quiet out of the way place. The meals were good, the little bar was fun and always busy. I was introduced to "stasch" raspberry hibiscus tea here and loved it so much when I returned to Florida I ordered 6 boxes!

Kantishna Roadhouse is a very nice place to stay at the end of the park road in Denali National Park, The Cabins are very basic, but comfortable. The lodge is very comfortable with large windows all around so that you can see the beauty of the outdoors. Take a hike, pan for gold or sit and enjoy the views. Very... More

Kantishna roadhouse is a holdover from the gold mining rush at the turn of the century. Accessible only via 3 hour bus ride on kantishna bus from Denali national Park visitor center. A visit to kantishna gets you further into the park than you can visit on your own. The trip is highlighted by a great bus ride, spectacular scenery... More
