One room had a single and a double bed (sagging badly on one side). A TV and small closet with a sink outside of the bathroom. Why put the TV in the smallish uncomfortable bedroom. The front room had an old couch and wooden rocker and wood chair in front of the desk. Design by grade school kids? maybe. The... More

Our stay at McKinley Chalet was through our Holland America cruise/land tour. We arrived here at about 5:30 p.m. from our ship at Seward. Holland America had our packet all ready to go with our room keys when we got there so we went straight to our building X which was down the hill from the main lodge. There are... More

Stayed at the McKinley Chalet Resort on a recent Holland America land tour. The hotel is rather spread out - but has an adequate bus system to move folks around. At the entrance to Denali there isn't much choice for lodging, but the room was fine and the amenities acceptable. The Sourdough Trading Co food was unacceptable - and the... More

We stayed at this chalet as part of the land+cruise deal with Holland America. It has a good location, accessible to downtown Denali (not very big - you walk across the street), free shuttle rides to the Paarl, and great scenery. Rooms are average but good and clean. Note, though, no refrigerator in the room if you need that. Laundry... More

We were in E building, great view, room comfortable, but sofa worn out. No bath. Quiet. Room service acceptable but they leave room unattended during service with door open, so don t leave anything valuable... Nenana restaurant ok but sourdough forget it, poor food, poor service, if you cross the street there is an excellent coffee shop with great breakfast... More

We were very fortunate that Mt. McKinley was visible to us for two whole days! The resort was absolutely wonderful. Guest services were great! The side trips we took were wonderful and sometimes breath taking. Also, if we just wanted to sit and watch the mountain it was a sight to behold as we were able to see the whole... More

Stayed two days as part of our Discover Alaska tour with Holland American. We stayed in the lodge and the room was comfortable and provided the needed amenities that a person would need. The shuttle service to the main lodge where all food and drinks are obtained was efficient and provided no problem in getting to the lodge for all... More

We stayed in the Cottonwoods building at the resort. The room was spacious and clean. I think this building is relatively new. The only drawback is that this property is on a steep hill. You can either wait for a shuttle to make its rounds and pick you up to go to the main resort complex or you can get... More

The location is great and the resort provides free shuttle buses to the National Park but the room was very outdated and needs a good face lift. We were located in one of the older buildings (Bldg. X) near the river. The room was clean but the carpet needs replacing, the bathroom, the bedroom and the sitting area needs to... More

This property ran like a well-oiled machine. The on-property shuttle was very efficient. The tour excursion representative was knowledgeable about tours to purchase and information about free options. The hotel room was lovely although there was a shortage of hot water the first night, and I wished for Wi-Fi in all room, instead of just the mail lodge. The food... More
