I didn't know what to expect after reading the other reviews, but everything was ok. Stayed there for 2 nights. The room was clean and in good shape, the staff was nice. Don't know what you could expect more at this price in Alaska especially if you consider that it is so close to a major tourist attraction.

Couldn't try the breakfast because I had to get up really eary to get the shuttle bus at Denali National Park (6 AM) and didn't want to get up even earlier to have time for breakfast

I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with this facility after reading the negative on-line reviews. Our small tour group of 8 stayed here prior to visiting Denali National Park. The rooms were clean, had working heat, clean relatively new linen and comfortable beds. They also had TV and an alarm clock. Both of which were hard to come by at some of the smaller, rural motels.
The breakfast is still poor. It is limited to vending machine pastries. There is plenty of hot water and perked coffee. Overall compared to many of the "out of the way" places we stayed while in Alaska, this was very acceptable. If you are used to big city, high end accommodations, this place will disappoint, but if you are satisfied with a quaint Motel 6 type facility, White Moose Lodge is recommended.

A great value to crash for one night stay in the Denali area. Nothing fancy but well worth the price compared to others in the area.

This place is a shack of sorts. If you're looking for fancy, this isn't the place. But it was clean, relatively quiet at night, and 11 miles from the entrance to Denali Park. They claim internet service, but the cabins at the end of the row get spotty reception. The doors have openings which let cold air in and we had to cover them with towels to keep the air out. When I told the caretaker about it, he simply told me that Home Depot sells weatherstripping! Huh??? Was I supposed to fix the problem? Weird, very weird! Stay here if you want "relatively" inexpensive, with a place to sleep and that's all.

Appeared to be newer, very clean, had access to frig, BIG freezer and microwave in the office. Bear Claw danish and coffee or hot chocolate for breakfast. It was only 10 minutes from pick up point for our Denali Tundra tour (which was great too) and this place was not nearly as pricey! We'd stay there again!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in June at the White Moose Lodge (while visiting Denali National Park.) The rooms were basic, quiet, and comfortable enough (no "frills" -- m'wave/frig, etc.). Did not try their "continental breakfast" as we just ate cereal in our room. The view is nice, however, the "town" was a bit misrepresented. If you want to eat at a restaurant, you will need to eat at the little boardwalk area near Denali National Park (Healy-- where the lodge is-- was supposed to have a restaurant, but the one and only spot we found was not something we cared to try.) You should compare the prices between the White Moose and those around Denali -- it just depends upon what you are looking for in accommodations. If you plan to spend a lot of time in the park, etc. and just plan on sleeping somewhere on a budget - White Moose is perfectly fine.
