We were a little disappointed in the Kantishna Roadhouse. The food was disappointing, Our dinner at the Roadhouse we had lamb shank. We could not have our own shank we had to split with someone at your table that ordered it…crazy. You spend all this money and they tell us we have to split a lamb shank with someone we... More

50th anniversary trip for my inlaws and my family of 4. The wait after the train arrived was a little unsettling for my wife but the experience riding in "Charlie" and guided by Kirsty was the most amazing thing. She has a great passion for Denali, the wildlife, and her bus and made the trip special. The rooms are in... More

There were some great things about this small remote resort. The nearly 5 hour drive is beautiful. The food was generally good. Breakfasts were a little annoying in that they ran out of basic things like coffee, syrup, ketchup, milk, every morning. Dinners were family style and much better and our waitress was terrific. We stayed in The Conlin cabin... More

We took our family of 5 (as part of our 30th anniversary) to the Kantishna Roadhouse at the end of July. We were welcomed by the most amazing guide - Kirsty Knittel and her bus "Charlie". I wasn't sure what to expect based on all the reviews I read. Charlie was a very clean and comfortable bus. We had the... More

First off, this is not merely a place to put your head on the pillow and catch some zzzz. That's what the Holiday Inn is for. Kantishna Roadhouse is an expedition--a journey full of unique experiences--so that is what you are paying for. If you don't like being immersed in nature with the comforts of good food, warm lodging, and... More

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.
