We didn't do much in our room other than sleep. It was clean and comfortable. We had breathtaking views. There is a restaurant and bar in property but other options nearby. There are regular shuttles to the village and the other lodges/trains station, etc. so you can go to a variety of places. Staff was friendly and service was great.

The view from my room (1616) was outstanding: A view of the Denali valley from the bluffs. The room was comfortable. I was impressed that there was a shuttle to the hotel right at the Alaska Railroad. Someone was there with a clipboard and a stack of card keys. You just told her your name and she handed you your...

We (2 couples) stayed here for 2 nights in July, 2016. We were able to catch up on laundry in the convenient facility on site. The restaurant where we had our breakfasts was good - had choice of either/or buffet and continental. Staff were friendly and one morning I ate alone and had a lovely chat with the concierge who...

Ok, the good, the location is near the the park, the staff is very pleasant and helpful. Also good is free on Internet. The bad, the room is cramped, the bed is terrible (worn and uncomfortable). Low end place at a high end rate. The walls are thin so we hear our neighbors on both sides and the room above.... More

Dear MichaelG1962, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Did you let our front desk know of your noise concerns? Unfortunately, we have tours that leave into Denali National Park very early in the morning and there are times that noise can be helped.

Small rooms, not too much storage are negatives, but free wifi and excellent service are positives! Prices are high here, but that is normal for most of Alaska, so don't be freaked out by $19 burgers! Small strip mall shopping is fun to explore just down the hill.

The room is small, but very comfortable, clean and sleep well on great beds. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The food at the restaurant was superb, fast, by great staff. The tortilla appetizer basket was the biggest that I have ever seen.

My wife and I originally planned to stay just one night but we ended up staying 3. Staff is spectacular. The bartender remembers your drink of choice, wait staff is so friendly and the front desk employees are great. The restaurant was pretty good. I recommend the chicken wings and the breakfast buffet.
