The Alpenglow Restaurant is a great place to dine in the Nenana River Valley of the National park. The staff was very accommodating and professional, with polished service. My girlfriend and I traveled up to Denali National Park, Alaska at the end of last year, and had a terrific stay with 2 wonderful meals at the Grande Denali Lodge and... More

Booked Denali Bluffs Hotel, but was promoted to Grande Denali Lodge without any extra charge as there were too few tourists at that time. A very welcome gesture. A free shuttle service connects the station with the hotel. The hotel is situated on a higher plane from where you get a good bird's eye view of the whole of the... More

Dear Dr. B, thank you for your review. The view is spectacular - I am pleased that you found our rooms spacious and our service good. We do have sleeping rooms that face the "view" but we may have been sold out these. They are slightly more expensive but the view is worth every penny. I am happy that you... More

Spectacular views, clean comfortable rooms. We received excellent service and the friendly staff made the stay very enjoyable. The buffet breakfast was great and the restaurant in the hotel was both convenient and one of the best in the area. We have stayed in other hotels in the area, but felt that this was one of the best. Prices are... More

My friend and I received a free upgrade and end up staying at this property. It is located on top of a steep hill. It is a good option near to Denali NP entrance. Rooms are spacious and adequate. If you get a room with a view, you will be overlooking the park. The lobby of the hotel is very... More

When choosing a hotel for our Denali visit, I agonized over the options before settling on the Grande Denali Lodge (or "The Grande," as the locals call it). I'm happy to report that it ended up being the ideal place for our needs. It was above the fray of Glitter Gulch with spectacular panoramic views from the rooms and Alpenglow... More

There is nothing luxurious about this place other than the location. Denali being a seasonal place high price is understandable. But at that price they could make the place better. High priced average food. Nothing to say anything speical about the rooms either. The people provided excellent service. Your choices in Denali are pretty limited.

Cheap motel 6 style rooms, shuttles that don't run on schedule and unapologetic management about it, unorganized and everyone passing the blame on everyone else. Overpriced everything, tired employees who want to be anywhere but there. This is not the quality you would expect from a resort. You'd have better luck at the hostel up the road. You get what...

The lodge restaurant and gift shop was very impressive - the room was not. It was comfortable and that's that. The separate lodge that we were in was very long with 1 center elevator so you had to walk from the check in desk in the gift shop area to the middle of the lodge then backtrack to your room....
