Our cabin was right along the creek, mostly quiet except for the soothing flow of the creek. The cabin was very comfortable, and the mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave were perfect for our needs. There were a few chairs set up along the creek, which was a nice place to relax and take in the beauty of the surrounding... More

We stayed one night on our way to visit Denali National Park. The cabin location was great with a porch right along the creek. The room was small, but adequate for our needs. We wished there was more insulation in the walls to help keep the room heated and the noise from the adjoining room down. There was also a... More

This is a nice place to stay. The service is good and the place is clean. There is no cell service at all but as others have said, when you come here, that is the last thing on your mind. Also, the wi-fi is spotty at best. The hotel front desk was helpful about letting us use the phone to... More

The room was clean and comfortable. We ate in the cafe for a dinner and a breakfast. The dinner I had at the cafe was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this August (2 nights) at the McKinley Creekside Cabins. Lovely setting, nice rooms, convenient to the entrance to Denali National Park. Food at the restaurant (evening dinner and breakfast) was excellent. Most amazing was the real extra mile the staff went when we discovered after arriving at the Anchorage airport that we had left one... More

I know check-in time is at 4pm but we happened to arrive at 3pm and it was raining. I am sure the room was ready but we were told to come back at 4pm to get the key for the room. Given the rainy weather and the 4 and half hour long drive we had coming from Anchorage, it would... More

Our cabin was small but neat and clean. The deck with propane heaters by the creek was a great place for the family to sit and recap the day..the creek keeps beer very cold! Some of our party were in downstairs of the hotel section and got no sleep because the updstairs guests were stomping around all night...ask for a... More

We stayed at the Carlo House, just 0.25 miles from the main office and dining room. There were 8 of us total and we fit in the house comfortably (all adults). There is one room with 2 queen sized beds, 1 room with one queen sized bed (a little small), and a huge master bedroom with a king sized bed.... More

Lovely cabin by the creek as the name of the property suggests. Very good WIFI. It got a bit chilly one of our nights but the heater did an excellent job and also helped dry our wet clothes as we had some very heavy rain. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The on site cafe was excellent, good... More
