Location was great for those visiting Denali. Convenient shuttle service to "town" and to the park. Rooms were adequate. Hotel is set up on a hill. Onsite restaurant was good. Lodge like. Hotel lobby has a nice fireplace and deck to enjoy outdoors as well. Front desk was very helpful. Breakfast and bagged lunch is available in the hotel cafe/shop.... More

We enjoyed staying at the Denali Bluffs Hotel in June of 2014. It is in a nice location close to Denali National Park and to various restaurants and shops. We took the shuttle from the hotel to the park. We walked to the shops and restaurants. Rooms were dated but were clean and comfortable. We did not spend much time... More

My husband and I stayed for one night in mid July. This was a return visit for me. We made a last minute reservation the day before and had no problem getting a reservation. Check in was a breeze and we were assigned a very nice room with a fabulous view. We arrived around 9 p.m. but the manager was... More

When reviewing hotels and restaurants in Denali, I keep in the mind the large number of visitors and the relatively small number of accommodations, as well as having to fly or ship in food, etc. We were vacationing in Alaska on somewhat of a budget for a family of four. The room with two beds was very basic but fine,... More

We wanted rustic for our Alaska trip and this ALMOST made the grade. It's not a cabin in the woods but the surrounding area certainly makes you feel like it is. The room was clean, comfortable and afforded a view of the mountains. It had snowed 2 days before we arrived and we were able to view the fresh dusting... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Denali Bluffs Resort during our trip to the Denali wildlife park. It is a beautiful resort with log rooms and a comfortable setting. Close enough to the shops and all places of interest. There is also a shuttle that connects to the park as well as to the railway station. We had an absolutely... More

Dear Lovekesh77, thank you for your review. We certainly appreciate your comments. This was a very rainy summer in Denali and as such, I am sure the carpets received more wear and tear than usual.

A nice hotel but basic. Clean with good breakfast. Short steep hill to the shops and restaurant but complimentary bus will take you down if you are unable to walk it. One of the closest hotels to the shops All staff very helpful especially bus drivers, reception staff and catering manager No noise from other guests.
