Loved our stay here last summer although we were able to stay here only for one night because the hotel was sold out. How we wished we could stay here longer ! Beautiful property and super comfortable stay. Very peaceful and relaxing.

There are not many places to stay close to the entrance of Denali National Park however the chalet is very appropriate and close to restaurants and the park bus stops. Our room was rustic but very clean, quiet and comfortable.

My husband and I stayed here from 8/12-8/15/15 as part of our Holland America land/cruise. This was the property used by Holland America so that's where we stayed for 3 nights. We found the staff to be very helpful with some questions we had. We would stay here again. Even though this resort is quite large with several buildings of... More

There are not a huge amount of places to stay close to the entrance of Denali National Park. This one is certainly one of the bigger places and offers everything you need during your visit to the park, including lunch boxes if you want to. The place was very clean, the rooms not huge but well equipped and there is... More

We stayed at the McKinley Chalet Resort at the conclusion of our Holland America cruise through the Inside Passage. Our room was a distance from the lodge, but the frequent shuttles made the commute easy. The room was clean and private with a view of the Nenana River behind. We only ate one meal in the lodge but were pleased... More

We loved our stay here. We had a room with a river view and the scenery was amazing. We ate at several restaurants here and not only was the food good but our servers were great and made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely would recommend!

Our Holland America cruise included a night at Denali National Park. We found the resort a comfortable and nicely maintained place to stay and the Cafe offered light offerings that we enjoyed. Our room was nicely appointed and the bus that circulated the property a nice touch. We did walk up in the morning for breakfast and found the walk... More

Stayed two nights in order to take the 12-hour bus trip into the park. (McKinley Resort is one of the off-site pick up points for the tour). The resort caters to large tour groups and works in conjunction with Holland-American. We and another couple drove down from Fairbanks; very good roads and it took a little over two hours. The...

There is free wifi in the lobby but mine actually worked 2 of the 3 nights in the chalet. There is a shuttle on the property... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in September during peak foliage. We had a room in the Canyon Lodge that was very clean and comfortable. Our room overlooked Mt. Healy so we had a great view! The hotel is very busy with Cruise Line folks in/out constantly. The restaurant and grill were very good and have a wide... More
