Stayed 2 nights here during our Alaska vacation. Only experienced 2 "issues": No cel phone service on property (very spotty if anything) due to location, although free WiFi is provided. Squeaky bathroom door hinges meant that late night trips may wake up others in the room. The property has a great cafe onsite with awesome bakery and good coffee. Plus... More

Beds were perfect for sleeping with the creek providing the perfect sound machine all night long. We especially enjoyed sitting out by the creek in the morning. It was very peaceful and relaxing. We were going to be late w check inand the staff was ver accommodating to get our keys for the night.

We had late check-in (two couples traveling by car). Check-in was very confusing as the busy cafe is right next to the front desk and there was a lot of commotion. Once the desk clerk figured things out, we were on our way to the cabin we booked for two nights - about 1/4 mile up the road. We knew... More

Very nice and serene location about 10 miles south of the park entrance. There is a cafe on site. They also coordinate tours into Denali. Cabins are quaint and clean. Deck and chairs by creek are so nice.

McKinley Creekside Cabins was a wonderful experience! My friend and I were visiting the Denali National Park and we were lucky to get accommodations here at Creekside (15 minutes drive from the Park entrance). We got a cabin facing the creek/river -- the sound of clean, rushing water was fantastic. The cabins are very clean and a good size for... More

We were pleasantly surprised by both the location and the cabin. Our cabin faced the Carlo river and was a very relaxing setting listening to the water cascading over the river stones. Our cabin was more than comfortable, bedding clean, bathroom was ok. We enjoyed a forest walk along the river bank! Our cabin had an outdoor table and chairs,... More

My wife and I stayed at Cabin #14 for 4 days end of this June. Because our goal was Denali National Park. This cabin offered reasonable price, effective facilities, quiet surroundings and resturaunt. Just 15 minutes drive to entrance of Denali NP and the town center where has more resturaunts and outdoor activities. Cabin was not spacious and just enough.... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations here. We had set our expectations to "basic and clean" (which they were) and found them to be cozy and comfortable. I agree with the reviewer who suggests trying to get a cabin away from the road due to noise. Ours was an upstairs unit closer to the creek and was very quiet.... More

We came here expecting a rustic cabin with the bare essentials and we were pleasantly surprised. Our cabin was very clean and well appointed, with lots of coffee (critical for me), VERY comfortable beds, and impressive housekeeping. Is it pricey? Compared to the lower 48, yes. Considering this is Alaska and very close to THE national park, it's in line... More
