This hotel is in a great location near the park entrance, and our room was in a nice location with a good view. As the expensive Denali area goes, this hotel is "reasonable." It probably would not be considered a good value in another location. The rooms are a little outdated and dark, but we managed to make it work.... More

Denali is an expensive area. Of the decent hotels, this was one of the cheapest. The room was very small and basic, and a bit old fashioned. But it was relatively clean. However, it was too expensive for what you get. Breakfast is not included, and costs $14,- in the hotel-restaurant.

Dear Northed, thanks for your review. We have a wonderful location, close to the canyon, close to Denali National Park Visitors Center and provide shuttle service to several drop off points. We also have complimentary wireless internet throughout our property. Breakfast is not included but there are very few hotels in Denali National Park that do include breakfast. We do... More

This room was pre-booked by my tour company, and I couldn't be more pleased. The room was well appointed, with all the amenities (fridge, coffee maker, etc), and a balcony with a stunning view. Shuttle service is available and very accommodating; front desk staff, too, are attentive to the guest's utmost comfort and satisfaction. It's beautifully situated on a hillside,... More

This is a resort which is showing its age, but still a decent choice when visiting Denali National Park. We were fortunate to get a second floor room with a balcony that did look out above the trees toward the Park. The good news was the view. The bad news is that we heard truck and bus traffic all night... More

Dear Thomas E, thanks for your review and staying with us. I am happy you were able to get a room with a view. As our hotel sits in a canyon and the road goes through the middle of that canyon, there is road noise from some of our sleeping rooms. I know that you have suggested to ask for... More

We checked into the hotel and were placed in the back of the property with mountain views that are obscured by trees. No view of the mountains. The bellhop stood tat the counter as we checked in with our luggage and decided to take his dinner break instead of helping us to our room, on the second floor, with no... More

Dear Rebecca C, I am shocked at what happened - as you can tell from other reviews this is NOT the standard of service we pride ourselves on providing. When the front desk told you there were no rooms with air conditioning it could have meant that no rooms were available with air conditioning. It is our peak season and... More

The rooms are in different buildings, on a hill, so if you have difficulty with stairs or hills- ask for a building near the top. The rooms all have a balcony but don't count on a view- the trees hide much of the mountains but views are accessible from the restaurant/ deck common area. Very close to the shops, restaurant...

Dear Idavey_10, thank you for staying with us. You are correct, the buildings are located on the side of a mountain and as such the walking paths do have incline.

Denali Bluffs is a great hotel to stay at if you are on a budget. Although the rooms are a bit small, it is comfortable for two people. Each room had two queen-sized beds, I believe. The views were great! From each room you had a view of the mountains surrounding Denali National Park. It was close to the National... More

The room was small and it was clean. Check in was a breeze as it was prebooked with Alaska Land and Tours. The convenience was a bit much as my husband has a handicap and the walk to and from the restaurant, bus stop and main entrance was a little difficult for him. The food at the Wilderness Lodge left... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while touring Denali Park. Our room was clean and we loved the room darkening curtains since there is so much daylight. We had fresh towels each day.

This place no doubt has been there a LONG time. Somewhere along the line it has been redone. The walk up and down hills didn't suit our age and them using a driveable service cart to clean rooms lends to their concern with the hills. The rooms are tiny. Clean, neat, but tiny. My camper at home is bigger. So... More

Dear Paul R, thanks for your review. We are in the process of upgrading the bedding, etc. in our sleeping rooms but you are certainly correct, the hotel has been here for many years. Since the hotel is on the side of a hill, it is really quite difficult to have all the rooms on the same level without inclines.... More
