Seamless arrival and checkin after bussing down from Fairbanks. The Lodge had a simple room, soft bed, and good shower. Lunch and dinner were excellent. We were hoping to see the northern lights as they were said to be visible in Fairbanks the previous night. When I woke up at 2AM, it was raining hard, with thunder and lightening off... More

This was our second lodge on the land tour portion of our cruise. Denali is a little more touristy than Mt. McKinley lodge was and you can walk across the street to restaurants and what else...stores! We were in building "P", 2nd floor, no elevators. I guess it was a good thing we could do stairs and I'm not sure... More

This Lodge has a fabulous location. Rooms are clean and nice. Great views walking on river side of lodge. If doing land tour, upgrade to tundra wilderness for $60...it's worth it. also look into trails and shuttles the park has free of charge. even a dog team demo. The location being within a couple miles of Denali National Park is... More

The hotel is very pretty. Nice rustic park look but modern clean rooms. The rooms were pretty basic but comfortable and had everything that you needed. What really stood out was restaurant (King Salmon), the lobby and common areas and the hot tubs overlooking the river. All were very special. The convenience to Denali is wonderful but I suspect everything... More

On the upside this is in a great area. Close to park. There is shuttle service and tour pick up. The breakfast buffet is pricey(16.95 per person), good but not over the top. Rooms need renovating. Carpet seems dated and bedding too. Lodge, buildings, and landscaping are kept nice. There is a strip mall across the street from hotel. Ice... More

The views are spectacular and and there is plenty to do for a 2 night stay, but not much more after that. Being so close to the park, means that there are lots of tours of varying length into the park, which was beautiful to see. The hotel itself offered great service, plenty of food options, even if you wanted... More

We stayed 2 nights here on our cruise tour. The location is great. You are 3 miles from the park. You can take a lodge shuttle to the park then take a forest service shuttle way into the park for a fraction of what you pay for a Princess tour. The sled dog demo in the park is worth the... More

Stayed for 2 nights after a Train ride in mid-August and found the accommodations in K Wing acceptable, clean and quiet for sleeping. No problems encountered at the lodge for us. Food at lodge was just OK, I highly recommend taking the short walk across the road to try the Pizza place that has 20+ beer taps and Reindeer Pizza... More

The views are stunning here and the service is pretty good. However the accommodation is poor to average. It contained a very comfortable bed- actually more comfortable than the ship and the McKinley Lodge. The rooms are drab and not cleaned well. The lighting is poor and where we slept in building E, it was very noisy! We could hear... More
