We absolutely loved our stay at Denali. The cabins are not overly luxurious or full of character but they are very comfortable for something this remote - a nice hot shower is a serious luxury. The facilities are very nice. The meals were excellent and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our favorite parts were the guided hikes, which were offered every day. They had hikes to suit all ability levels - we like challenging hikes and we were not disappointed.
The location is of course what makes this place truly spectacular. It was right on the banks of a rushing creek and we loved just sitting in the sun reading our books creekside. In the evenings they had a shuttle bus to Wonder Lake for sunset -- staying out here is the only way you will get to see this truly amazing sight. On our hikes we were able to see all of Denali and the whole range - spectacular.
It is not really worth it unless you stay at least two nights. The bus ride is very long (though great when you get to see loads of animals).
