4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

As part of our cruise, we took the land tour into Fairbanks, AK. We stayed in Denali State Park and Denali National Park. Overall, we liked the Denali Princess State Park lodge better than the Denali Princess National park lodge. The national park was very crowded when we traveled in September 2014. It was hard to get into a restaurant... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay and the lodge and had a wonderful visit. The setting was spectacular-the hotel views of the mountain ranges and the valley below are majestic. We had dinner several nights at the lodge's Aspenglow and the meals were fresh and tasty. They've done a great job in hiring a seasonal... More

During summer, you will pay dearly. Let's get that out of the way. If you don't book well in advance, you will pay even more dearly. But you will probably be happy to get a room, so you may be ok with it. The accommodations leave much to be desired at prices north of $200/ night, but it's clean, the... More

First ever visit to Denali but not to Alaska, great experience. Definitely pricey to stay at the lodge but worth it. I stayed with my parents, it was on my birthday I we all had a great time, and were able to get some great photographic memories !

Alaska - Grande Denali Lodge Denali Park Area Before booking my reservation I researched the hotel options in the area. I chose Grande Denali Lodge because it is located on a hill and it overlooks the other hotels, the Nenana River, part of Denali Park and the luxury train that travels from Anchorage to Fairbanks with a stop in Denali...

Dear JoJoM, thanks so much for your review - if you received sunglasses as part of your souvenir packet I assume you were there last June during our Solstice Celebration.

We stayed here in May 2014 and were not disappointed by the views! Room was large and comfortable, Shuttle bus was very efficient and ran to schedule every day/evening with very friendly and helpful drivers. Reception was quite busy on arrival, and with only 1 person checking in, it felt like we waited a while for check-in. We ate in... More

The views from this hotel were beautiful. I wasn't however impressed with the service. We were there for 2 nights. We left and were gone all day. When we returned to the room, it hadn't even been touched. I also wasn't impressed with the lounge service. The only thing that rated a 4 star this hotel for me was the... More

Dear RT89, I am so sorry that you didn't have the quality of service you expected at our beautiful lodge. As you may know, we open every year in May and I suspect that you stayed with us within the first two weeks of the season. This is certainly no excuse for your room not being cleaned and the service... More

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.

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.
