The hotel refused to cancel a reservation even considering that the reason was a serious health problem that completely prevented the trip. My mother in law is dying in an hospital, but the hotel was unfeeling and cruel.

Hotel is on a hillside just outside Denali National Park and Preserve. Our tour booked us in here. Good room nothing special. Nice restaurant. I wish you could see Mt. McKinley but the view is still fabulous.

Dear John117592, thanks so much for staying with us and for writing a review. Our Denali Bluffs does has a perfect location - unfortunately McKinley/Denali is not viewable from any hotels at the entrance to Denali National Park - the only hotels in Denali that have a view are at the back of the park (about 90 miles away). Thanks... More

Great staff. John's knowledge about the park saved us $$ when trying to decide on the type of shuttle to use through the park. The hotel shuttle staff go out of their way to accommodate your needs before or after the regular schedule operation, especially Hans & Don. Staff had the room keys for us when we got off the...

The staff at Denali Bluffs are fantastic. A bus company skipped a pickup at the hotel. The staff helped contact the bus company, and even more remarkable, the hotel manager DROVE me to the next pickup point. They did all this, and I wasn't even a paying customer. Anyway, I've never written a review, but some acts of kindness deserve... More

Dear ReeseH, thanks so much for your review. Our staff tries to go above and beyond and since I am not the manager, I can proudly tell you that kind of customer service does start at the top. I have seen our GM go out of there way countless times to help guests with similar situations. Thanks so much for... More

We had a great stay at the Bluffs at the beginning of August. The rooms were quite clean and comfortable. The staff very friendly. The breakfast buffet left a bit to be desired, but would stay there again and recommend it to friends.

Spent two nights at Bluffs. Room was adequately appointed and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately, we could hear all plumbing from three rooms on the floor above and the two rooms beside us. Sleep was not as restful due to the noise. Had breakfast in the restaurant and it was good. Staff was helpful with information on shuttles to Park... More

Dear NealM, first of all, as a fellow Rotarian, it is GREAT to see that symbol on your photo! I am so very sorry your room was noisy. As you know tours into the park start leaving very early and some get back very late so people can be up and getting ready as early as 4am and getting back... More

Staff seems nice, but announced they were short staffed and to let them know if, when we went to our rooms, we found that they hadn't been cleaned yet. Beautiful location. Basic, small rooms, but rustic and kind of fun.

Dear SharonC, thanks for your review of both the Bluffs and our Mountaineer Restaurant. The rooms are cozy and cabin "ish" - I am glad you liked them. As for the information our staff told you as far as the rooms perhaps not being ready, I am a bit confused. We do have a system and housekeeping alerts us when... More

The Bluffs has a great front desk staff, concierge and shuttle service to the park. The deli and the restaurant on site though were not very good. The main lobby is nice to sit and relax. Nice front deck as well. The room itself was nothing great. It had a odd smell in the bathroom like it might be moldy.... More

Dear MaryM, I am sorry to hear about your experience at our hotel. Did you speak to a manager about your concerns. We have many people order box lunches daily and once in a while a lunch is not made but that is no excuse to just "throw some things" in a box for you. As for the restaurant, I... More

everything is expensive in AK. Especially by tourist areas. This was a reasonable price considering that. The shuttle service is wonderful- very nice drivers. The breakfast buffet didn't have reindeer sausage or muffins, even though the menu said it would. So get your reindeer sausage taste elsewhere. Its much closer to the delicious Salmon Bake and Prospector's Pizzeria than it's... More
