Cabins are basic. There is no refrigerator. We stayed by the river cabins, which I don't suggest as it has partial view and river color is dark due to silt. It is 6 miles drive to Denali park entrance.

The cabins were on the small side (two small beds barely slept four), but we didn't go to Denali to stay inside! While the room was very basic with few amenities (I expect a little more for the price) our room was very clean - a must for me. There was a bit of traffic noise which was mostly masked by the rushing Nenana River. The exceptionally friendly staff was very helpful when it came to requesting information regarding nearby hiking trails and more. As a plus, the white river rafting and interior tour buses both made stops at the cabins. On the downside, Denali River Cabins did not offer a tram to and from sites (we were able to bum rides from the great guys at Denali Cabins) although they do pick up and drop off from the train station.

Room Tip: The riverfront room was worth the extra price.

Mattress was one step above real camping, but impeccably clean room, bath and external sink. Cute little places with a fresh-cut wood smell, and river rapids sounds to lull you to sleep,though occasional road noise on the bridge. Inexpensive breakfast, and coffee. Tip: Book your bus tour of Denali with your hotel reservation for not only a discount, but to enjoy a larger window and more comfortable seat on your way to the DRC other privately owned Doyon indian hotel, Kantishna Roadhouse, where you enjoy a luxurious camp lodge, hiking, lunch, cool bartender who I could have talked to ALL DAY, and a choice of gold panning or dog sled educational course. Our driver was THE BEST, highly skilled, with an interesting background of slavic folklore, and a really amazing gift for storytelling. What could have been a too-long drive was delightful with his stories and snack breaks, hot drink breaks, homemade cookies rivaling Ms. Fields and a crazy Willie Nelson-like dog mushing trainer at the lodge. Consider the flight back if weather is clear over McKinley.

Room Tip: All cabins seem same. River view would be a plus, as well being at the extreme end of the path. Sauna and deck in the middle section with nice benches.

We found our room to be very comfortable and very clean. The bathroom had a large walk-in shower. The room had two double beds. There was WIFI in the room. We did not have air conditioning, but we were on the second floor and comfortable enough to leave the window open. There was a fan in the room that helped at night. The main lobby of the lodge is very pretty. It has a large gift shop, a Starbucks cafe, and a restaurant. We enjoyed eating our dinner and our buffet breakfast outdoors near the fire pit and overlooking the Nenana River and the mountains. Our stay here was very comfortable and pleasant. We would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, your room and the firepit and deck at the restaurant. We were lucky to have many beautiful, warm days this summer to enjoy the firepit.

Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you again sometime.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed the lodge, the restaurant and back deck. With the beautiful weather we've had this summer, most of our guests have been on the riverside seeting areas enjoying the views and weather.

Thanks again for your insight!
