I agree with some other reviewers when they say that the cabins are too rustic! They are definitely in need of some repairs. Water pressure in the showers was definitely an issue. On a positive note, they are clean and the beds were very comfortable. The shuttle service was very helpful, although the wait at the park for a pick... More

Loved our short stay. They are exactly what is advertised. Rustic cabins along a beautiful brook with spectacular views. You should know already that booking these you will not be getting a 4 star hotel, you get exactly what you would want this close to Denali….Rustic cabins. That being said, they are cute cabins that were very comfortable, all the... More

We definitely expected more than what was offered. The facility is in dire need of repairs and for the price I would think they could afford to offer more. After we arrived we saw numerous places that were much nicer and for a better price.

Stayed here while waiting for the bus to Kantishna. Cabin was nice, rustic and clean. Noisy with people going by and a little high priced. Check out time could be a little later to coordinate with the bus leaving in the afternoon.

Great little cabins. Fairly close together. Easy commute to Denali National Park. We were in the back at 1 of the family cabins and it was a bit noisy when they were cleaning the buses for the next day. They didn't get finished until about 9:00pm. But there were no other people walking around by our cabin. Food at the... More

The cabin rental was not even close to the worth what I paid for. It was small, tiny, dingy and smelly. What a terrible waste of my money! Based on the hotel website pictures, I was expecting a much better place. The pathway access to the cabin is filled with gravel (crushed stone) and you cannot roll the suitcases. The... More

The cabins are a bit dingy mostly because of the sawn timber style. All clean though, enough space to share, good shower. The breakfast is buffet style for $16 from 5:15am-10:00am. Lots of choice and delicious. Really great value when one individual yoghurt at the visitors centre cost $6. Evening meals were delicious and big. Bar was a bit low... More

We spent 3 nights here mid September. Feels at first sight like a more authentic park-like place to stay. However the details are weak; tiny rooms with poor heating, left uncleaned on our 2nd day. No kettle or fridge in room. Grubby shower curtain.Very thin walls, sticking doors, unreliable tv & wifi. There are a couple of shuttles from the... More

Four of us rented two rooms at the Denali Cabins for two nights and we were very pleased. The rooms were small but they were clean and cozy. If the bath rooms were fully enclosed, they had an open ceiling; it would make the rooms more comfortable. The rooms were quiet except for the early morning movement of suit cases... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are very warm, basic, but nice. House keeping seems to be an issue. Bathroom floor was dirty when I checked in and stayed that way. Restaurant is great, good food. No coffee making facilities in your room. I'd come back.
