We stayed at the hotel during Denali Road Lottery Weekend 2015, as it was one of the few hotels that had a vacancy when I was gifted a last-minute lottery pass. The winter rate ($90/single occupancy, $107 incl tax for a couple) matched other hotels in the area, and I felt it was fair as the hotel is in close... More

We stayed at the Totem Inn for two nights in early September. The check-in process was easy, the front desk lady was friendly. As soon as we walked in, the place smelled of smoke. We asked for a "non-smoking" room and we were told that all rooms were non-smoking. My guess is that the smell came from the carpet, probably... More

The hotel itself was clean but there was an odd odor, smelled as if they were trying to cover up cigarette smoke. The receptionist did not acknowledge that we had even entered the lobby until we said something to him first. We were not pointed in the direction of our room which would have been helpful since we've never stayed... More

This Inn is about 15 min. drive from the park. Due to our late tour at Denali National Park, we arrived around 10:00pm, the friendly staff member was waiting for us to check in, whose I much appreciated! They serve hot breakfast, free wifi, gym, and if I am not mistaken, they have sauna inside the gym as well! Overall,... More

Stayed 2 nights on the recommendation of a family member and due to the fact that nothing else had any vacancies. Good price--15 minute drive to Denali. Breakfast is served starting at 6 am-- we had to be out earlier than that so we didn't partake( second morning we went to Roses). Ask for a room away from the check... More

The Totem Inn seemed to be full, but we rarely ever saw anyone. However we pretty much only slept there and spent our time in the park. I will say the room was clean, and I slept well, and that's what is really important. They also had a decent complimentary breakfast. There is a restaurant on the premises but we... More

Bobbi the receptionist helped me with making reservations on their Internet, when my Tablet was locked in my car, then helped with phone calls to get car unlocked! I could not have done it alone. Thank you!

Stayed here whilst exploring Denali National Park - the location is great as it's about a 15 min drive away, so far enough away to get away from the main tourist traps but close enough to make getting to the park in the morning nice and easy. The motel is pretty average - rooms are fine (clean and enough space)... More

We stayed here with our 3 kids and had a wonderful time. Location is convenient to Denali, there are a few good restaurants in the area, hotel room was clean, and the employees were very accommodating.
