There were a couple of issues here, the biggest two related to sound. We could hear our neighbors alarm clock through the wall, and it was a phone alarm clock, nothing 'intense.' Additionally, the boardwalks between cabins are planks of wood, a charming appearance at first, but rolling luggage across them with the thin walls led to us being woken... More

Arrived late afternoon and room was ready. We stayed toward the back, past the hot tubs, and it was quiet. Room was reasonably big, bathroom had shower stall & toilet, with sink outside. Food in restaurant good, and they actually had a wine selection (unlike some of the other Alaska places we ate with choices of box-wine red & box-wine... More

Very disappointed, had to wait for rooms to be cleaned from previous nite, no boardwalk to our rooms, take bags over rough gravel road to room, very small cabin with large king size bed filling room, no coffee/tea facilities, fridge or microwave in room, not even a glass, heater not working in room. So we went to get coffee as... More

So we were looking to book a trip to Denali a little late. We went through Alaska Railroad and went Gold Star from Anchorage stopping for a day in Talkeetna (very nice town and great hotel). The Denali Cabins were all that was available and left something to be desired. Small, old, not in great shape. If you have to... More

There are not too many places to stay in Denali, and many of them are quite expensive and fill up fast. The Denali Cabins was the only place we could find that had space left, so we figured that meant it would be on the low end. We were pleasantly surprised that it was actually quite nice. Certainly, as they... More

My mom and I took a wrong shuttle from a 13 hour back country tour in the preserve and ended up at the Denali Cabins on accident just before their last hotel shuttle was going to leave for the night. At the office we asked the manager, Renee, if we grabbed food to go at the restaurant as quickly as... More

We chose Denali Cabins for our 3 night stay based on several recommendations from friends who'd stayed here several years ago. The Cabins are located on beautiful property about 8 miles from the entrance to Denali National Park. It was well maintained and our basic needs were met. Their online reviews were accurate but transportation is a challenge from here.... More

This is a "no frills" type of place but very clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and the cafe has good food. They have a free shuttle to "Glitter Gulch," the train station and visitor's center.

By March much of the lodging around Denali had booked for July, and we came with hope but no expectation. I really liked the location, eight miles south of park entrance and away from "Glitter Gulch." These cabins are definitely no frills, but they were clean and well-managed. It was the best sleep we had all trip due to darkness... More

Denali Cabins is made up of a number of individual or dual cabins. The rooms are very basic. The room was very dark, but was clean on the first of our three days. The second day, we had no maid service although we were told that we should have had it. The third day the same thing happened. Finally at... More

BarbWas, We appreciate your thoughts and feedback in regards to your recent stay with us. We strive to always ensure that we exceed our guest’s expectations and it seems that we fell short in providing you that service. It is our goal to have all rooms cleaned and ready by our 3 PM check-in time each day. It seems that... More
