We had a 2 queen cabin. Soooo comfy, easy to manage thermostat, micro, coffeemaker and fridge. Very friendly and helpful staff. Wifi works great but no phone service, which was fine for us. It was unbelievably nice to have a warm dry place after hiking the park, only 15minutes away! And make sure you eat at their cafe, it is... More

McKinley Creekside Cabins was the perfect place to stay during our adventures into Denali National Park. The accommodations were great, close to the park, and reasonably priced. We especially enjoyed opening our door to the creek each day. There are outdoor areas to hang out and a café for meals (great blueberry pecan pancakes). The front desk staff was helpful,... More

we stayed there three nights and really enjoyed it. Easy 13-mile drive to Denali Park. First night we had twin queens: comfortable beds but room was smallish. We then got a king room (#28); much more spacious. Friendly people. Great little restaurant. Great breakfasts and good array of dinner choices. Plus a bakery. One night they had Alaska King Crab...

We rented the two bedroom Carlos cabin. It was great. It was spacious, well outfitted, and nicely decorated. Both bathrooms were roomy and the showers had very good pressure. The cabin was spotlessly clean. We did not cook in the cabin as we were only there two very busy days and nights but the kitchen was quite nice. The café... More

We stayed 4 nights at Creekside and could not have been happier with our choice! The cabin was great; the staff did an outstanding job - professional, courteous, cheerful in helping us in every way! If you're headed to Denali, you can't do better than McKinley Creekside Cabins!

We stayed three nights at the McKinley Creekside Cabins and it was great. The property is about 15 minutes south of the park but the drive back and forth is beautiful. We also ate breakfast 2x at the restaurant on site. Both meals were great. There was a bit of delay and slow service the first meal but I think... More

Lucky us! We had the luck and opportunity to stay in the Carlo Creek Loft. The loft is just a bit further away from the main cabins but is still very close to the cafe. It's a very large private room with a large TV, WiFi, full kitchen and large bath. The bed is quite comfortable and it is so... More

We stayed for two nights while visiting Denali National Park. The cabin by the creek was quite comfortable, great to have the cafe onsite. Free wifi worked well. These cabins are about 12 miles from the railway station and park entrance so you need to hire a car if you're staying here as there are no shuttles. Reception informed us... More

I booked this house 10 months in advance and I am glad I did. Check in was easy and just up the road was the Carlo Cabin. It is a 3 bedroom house that can sleep 8 to 10 people. Beautifully furnished with stainless steel appliances. Very convenient washer and dryer that got used a lot. The upstairs bedroom is... More

We stayed at the Carlos House and it is beautiful and spacious. The master bedroom and bathroom offer good views. The whole house was clean. My sister's family rented the cabin and it was also very nice. Both these places are outside the creekside so we had that whole area to ourselves. At the main creekside the gazebo and creek... More
