We stayed in one of the five private cabins and it was excellent. These private little getaways have incredible views and even wifi. Golf carts take you to/from the main lodge which features a nice Restaraunt. Staff was friendly and everything was very clean. Again. We were not in the main hotel. We were in- and highly recommend- the cabins.... More

What a spectacular view of everything, loved the whimisical signs on the road up to it. Lively bar scene, good quality restaurant, great for viewing sunsets, comfortable rooms. We stayed there for two nights on our land tour of Alaska through Celebrity and it was great, helpful staff and relaxing lodge.

I stayed one night in one of the cabins at the Grande Denali. The space was cutely laid out and decorated and the views were stunning! Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and seemed to enjoy working there. I loved some of the personal touches such as the free postcards, I took a few! If you want something more than... More

The Grande Denali was a nice enough clean Alaskan hotel with good wifi, amazing views and good customer service. The restaurant was decent and the bartenders were fun but could not match the amazing views! You will quickly learn that hotels in Alaska are not comparable to hotels in most of the lower 48. In resort towns like Denali the... More

Dear Ksimp85370, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. You are correct, our hotels are open 120 days per year- that brings many challenges but we feel very lucky to have the wonderful staff that goes out of their way to react to our guests requests. We do have new bedding in our budget plans... More

On our way down through Alaska on our RCCL tour, this was our second stop. This hotel is up a winding road carved into the mountainside. Make sure you look for the funny road signs on the windy road up. This was a very good Hotel with spectacular views out over the Denali National Park entrance area. Hotel has Free... More

Stayed at the Grande Denali Lodge in August 2014 for 2 nights during an Alaskan land tour. First, the positives - views are fantastic from the rooms facing the canyon, shuttle to "downtown" was great - worked good for all our group, and breakfast buffet was good (but not included in room). Now, the negatives - rooms need some updating,... More

Great location for activities in area as amazing views from restaurant. Rooms are ok. They need to work on customer service to get higher reviews. Would also advise asking for a room with a view from the 2nd story. I would stay here again or would try the chalet.

Dear WilsonL, thanks for your review. I am concerned about your comment about the customer service. Would you contact me directly to let me know what your concerns were - it is hard for us to react to your concerns without more details. Thanks so much - Dee Dee (dkay@denalialaska.com) More

Expected a 1st class hotel on a Celebrity tour and got a very cheap budget room; solid foam pillows cheap decor, old tv, vinyl floor in bathroom, etc. Linens and towels were good and restaurant was excellent with Great views! Would not stay here again!

Dear Donnied, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We do have a wonderful restaurant with great views. Our rooms will be going through a refurbish next year - bedding will certainly be replaced. As our rooms go "cold" in the winter (that can mean down to 40 below 0) we have to look for flooring, etc. that... More

We spent one night at the Grande Denali Lodge before heading into Denali Park. The view was breathtaking, the room was OK. We had a room with a view, but the room was nothing special for the $300 we paid for it. They have a complimentary shuttle down to the shops which was nice. Bed was very comfortable. We purchased...

Grande Denali Lodge is located on the side of a mountain, with our room looking out and down over the valley and the park. Although the lodge is separated from the shops and action by a winding road, the quiet location suited us perfectly, and there are free shuttles down the hill every half hour with drivers that are helpful...
