Taken on its own, this property is fine. A nice hotel with good sized rooms and very nice welcome amenities. Clean and comfortable. But what you really come here for are the views. Absolutely amazing. And if your room doesn't face them, come over to the lobby and restaurant building and you'll be more than pleased. And location too -... More

Dear Grobma, thank you so much for your review. You are correct, the views are spectacular - we are pleased that you found our rooms comfortable and I agree, our shuttle drivers do an awesome job. We run a shuttle every hour from 6am to 10pm so our guests have plenty of time to really explore both Denali National Park... More

It's amazing one can look at the Denali Park Hotel 10 miles north I. Healy and see average rating of 4 stars and this place and average rating of 3 stars here and think you will be more comfortable at the Denali Park. Wrong!

Dear Lucy J, thanks for staying with us. Our view is SPECTACULAR and I am glad you enjoyed it. Lucy, there are a lot of different options in and around the entrance to Denali National Park.

Our tour in Alaska took us to Denali National Park which is spectacular. We stayed two nights at the Grand Denali Lodge high on the mountain overlooking the park. The rooms were comfortable. The service is poor, and the food is pricey, and not so good .... walk into town to eat and drink

Dear Jim J, thanks for staying with us - I am concerned that you found the level of service at our lodge "poor" - did you make any of our managers aware of your concerns - it is difficult for us to react to service issues without hearing from our valued guests. I am glad that you found our beds... More

Rooms were good size, clean, hotel staff were excellent. Location is key. Views were awesome. Free shuttle to town with lots of shops and restaurants. Sits up on a hill side. Great location to access Denali national park. While driving up the road to the lodge don't forget to read the signs, very unique.

Had the good fortune to find this place online, sight unseen. Booked for three nights. You can't imagine our delight when we rounded the curve in the road from Anchorage and saw this place sitting in magnificent splendor atop a beautiful rock hillside overlooking Denali Park.

Up up the hill on a bumpy road accompanied with many very original street signes I enjoyed two nights at this place. The hotel shuttle gets you to the Denali Park every 30 minutes - a great service. The food is very good and the view outstanding.

Stayed two nights during our trip for the Denali road lottery. Got a view room with a balcony. View was great. Hotel is not set up for lots of guests with their own transportation.
