Although we didn't stay here or eat at the restaurant, he 4 of us went on a Sunday night and thought it was a really cool bar. The bartender made a real cocktail, not one watered down with ice and mixers. There were a lot of bar games to play, pool, shuffle board, xbox, wii, riding bull but a bear,... More

We found the Totem Inn by default. We wanted away from the commercialism that surrounds Denali National Park so chose to stay a bit out of the way. The Totem is everything you would expect from a traditional Alaskan Road House. Hearty food, clean and comfortable but not elegant rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were quiet...

My friend and I were there for 2 meals last week. Nothing much opened for business before mid-may in Healy and Denali so Totem was our only option for quick food. We had pizza and breakfast like benedict and harsh brown. It was ok. The diner and pub deco are definitely out dated but it's a local hangout pub so... More

Overall the room was decent but the service from the employees was definitely unsatisfactory. I feel we were stereotyped for being in our early 20's and treated like we were trying to rip them off. We were accused of trying to pay for one person in a room when we had 4 but that wasn't the case at all. Considering... More

I stayed there for 1 night before going to Denali, I arrived around 9pm and took their last room. I did not dare take my shoes off; the bathroom floor looks like they do not clean along the perimeter (up to 1 ft from the wall), the shower curtain was dirty and overall I was worried about what I would...

We stayed at the Totem Inn 2 nights and they were like night and day. The first night was one of the worst nights I've spent at a hotel with the rating of 1 or less and I've stayed in a lot of hotels. This room rates below some of the rooms I've stayed in 3rd world countries with the... More

We stayed one night as our other accommodations didn't have room for us. I wasn't sure about the Inn but we were comfortable in our room. OK, it wasn't the Hilton and the beds a little hard but we were tired from a long day in the park so it felt good. I always check the sheets and they were... More

I was a little worried about our stay at the Totem Inn when I read the last reviews on this site. My first impressions when I pulled into the parking lot was, “wow nice looking place, looks better than the web site pictures”. When checking in, the desk person was very nice and reminded us to turn the refrigerator on... More

This place seemed a bit seedy when we checked inn (though the real stuffed musk ox in the foyer was funny). The guy at the check-in wasn’t friendly. We looked at our room and then went to dinner. When we came back to the Totem Inn, we unlocked our room only to see someone else in tour room! The guy... More

Not luxury by any means. When we were there it was some of the hottest weather recorded and this hotel has no air conditioning and the mosquitos were out 24 hours a day. The beds are not very comfortable but not the worst I have been in. The cost is reasonable compared to what is available in the area. Free... More
