We visited the Denali national park in the off-shoulder season of late may and were recommended by friends to stay at Grande Denali... The drive to the actual lodge is itself very adventurous and makes you feel like Tibet or Nepal. The property is situated on a huge cliffs with some unreal vistas and Mt Mckinley views ....

The views are wonderful and the staff extremely attentive. Shuttle service to Denali NP and glitter gulch was great. Restaurant extremely overpriced (even for Alaska) with limited menu. Rooms had great view and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. However, TV was old, not even a flat screen!!! The hotel ran out of water our last day... More

This hotel has spectacular view and by all means spring for a view room as those facing the parking lot can be noisy from tour buses and ATVs operated by hotel staff. The rooms are decent size but bathrooms are dated and minimal. Towels and bed linens are on gross side - I didn't think it was possible to still... More

Dear Travelinggal1951, first of all, thanks for the review - we absolutely do care what our guests think about our hotel and have invested over a million dollars in our hotel infrastructure the past two summers. New bedspreads, draperies and flat screen televisions are on the wish list for 2015. Since we only operate 120 days per year the bedding... More

This is what I call a "National Park" style lodge, similar to what you would find in Montana and Wyoming. Sure, they don't have all the cable channels, but is that why go to Alaska? Our room overlooked the Nenana River, and it's well worth the extra price. Dinner at the on site restaurant was very good, and the shuttle... More

We had a medical emergency and had to return home to treat this problem. We called the hotel staff to tell them we could not keep our stay as planned. The staff lack any concern and had no compassion. No offer to refund a part of pre-paid purchase cost.

Dear Mark D, first of all, I am sorry about your family emergency - I am bit perplexed by your comments. Did you speak to a manager. There are many things that are considered when a guest starts to cancel a reservation - was the reservation made directly with us or through another company (as they would be contacted then... More

Considering where this Hotel is located, the middle of Alaska this is very nice. The view was very good up stream, south east as the lodge is situated on top of a steep ridge with a very winding road leading up to it. The restaurant was not exceptional but again it was Denali, not New York.

I traveled to the Grande Denali Lodge with my husband, kids and mom so that we could show her Denali Park. We stayed overnight before heading into the park the next day.

We stayed in the cabins, and this was the best accommodation we stayed at in Alaska. Our cabin, Caribou, was small, but had everything we needed. We had a small deck with a table, a small bedroom, a small living room with tv (vital during the World Cup!), a sink and fridge, and of course the bathroom. The only strange... More

I stayed at the Grande Denali Lodge for two nights on an Alaska tour. My room faced the river valley and the mountains in Denali, so the view was excellent. The room itself was nothing special, but the lodge building is exquisite. It sits on top of a high cliff and affords a great view of the valley and the... More
