We came here for dinner on a Monday evening - it was the worst place we have eaten in Alaska. We were seated by a waitress who then ignored us for about 45 mins. The waitress proceeded to take orders from people who came in after us - they were obviously locals and known to her. After this happened two... More

The price was good since we didn't want to pay the price for hotels in the park. Just 15 minutes from park entrance. They offered a free breakfast to start our day. Rooms were nice and clean. With two double beds they offered a small gym and sauna. They also had a restaurant on site. We ate up the street... More

The Totem Inn is an excellent choice for a small town in Alaska, and the proximity to Denali Park can't be beat. The Inn offers a small fitness room, free wi-fi, free breakfast, on-site bar and restaurant, and a nice courtyard. Rooms are surprisingly spacious, and they come with a comfortable rocking chair, tv, table, microwave, refrigerator, and large private... More

We found the inn to be nicely landscaped and well-outfitted for the travelers. The wheelchair-accessible parking is great for the companion restaurant but closer accessible parking needs to be provided for the inn. There is a good place which only needs additional signage to reserve a spot for handicapped guests. The inn is non-smoking during the summer but there is... More

Stayed here on our weekend trip to Denali. The location wasn't too far from the park entrance and even better was its location right next to 49th state brewery. Rooms and breakfast were basic and all that we really needed. Lighting in the room was pretty low but not a big deal since it was summer. We also enjoyed a... More

We stayed in the older part of the motel. Very dated and tiny. It appears as if they will/did open a new addition this season. The breakfast I can't really comment on as by the time we got there around 8:15 most of the food was gone. Several cooks came and went but none asked if we wanted any more... More

We arrived a little early for our check-in time. There was nobody at the counter. Had to call the restaurant to somebody. Guy was a jerk! There are many other options in the area, take advantage of them!

Had we known how bad the noise was there is no way we would have booked. Unfortunately we had 2 nights here which had been prepaid. The lady at the front counter was friendly. we found the rooms dated but clean. The reception area with a big glass enclosure with a stuffed animal inside it a really strange thing to... More

I went there with a friend for dinner. The place is not very friendly. Service is hit and miss. Food is edible but not great. The salad bar was the best thing about the place. It does have a rustic charm about it. It does have a side room and bar with a pool table for adults.

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
