According to staff, only 3,000 people live within a 25 mile radius. Rooms are exactly like those at Denali Princess; small. Beautiful setting close to Wrangle Eilas National Park, and very little else. We took the drive to McCarthy and the road is not nearly as bad as they suggested. The restaurants (2) are good and the breakfast buffet is average with high prices. Service was OK and the front desk team was friendly and informed about the local area. They acted like we were asking for a lot when we wanted to change to a room with less noise and there were rooms available and they refused to move us to a room with a view of the mountains. Our room looked out onto the parking pat and entrance and the bus traffic and employee traffic was heavy and noisy.
Overall; an adequate hotel with high prices and average services.

Room Tip: Reserve a room with a mountain view, otherwise you'll get the parking lot and bus traffic.

very nice! If you go in June, you will see the 24 sun solstice. It is priceless.
The resort is very well equipped and it has free internet from the lobby. It is a good place to be in contact with nature.

Room Tip: Very quiet rooms

We already stopped by this lodge last year and we were slightly disappointed by the staff attitude and the quality of the room. Nevertheless, we decided to come back to this hotel this year and we spent one night on Aug 22. We immediately saw a change compare to last year. The staff was professional and smiling and gave us all the information we needed. The room was clean. We had a diner at the restaurant and were satisfied. We did not experienced again the breakfast, because we were disappointed last year. The WiFi is only available in the lobby which is a constraint and the lobby is very often noisy. So, one improvement would be to have the Wifi available in the rooms. Another improvement probably more important is the phonic isolation of the rooms. The one we had this year was just above the external air conditioning/ventilation system which was very noisy. With ear plug it was ok! All in all, this is a good place to stay on the Richardson HWY

Room Tip: if possible, try to get room with a view on the mountains or far from external ventilation system

We visited here after driving the Denali Highway, and we were pleasantly surprised. Our room had a great view across the valley to the mountains. The staff was wonderful- really friendly and helpful, advising us about activities. We had some choices to make due to an unforeseen change in our itinerary and they advised us well. Good laundry facilities, free wifi and 2 restaurants. The food in the bar was very mixed- I had a delicious scallop dinner, whereas my friend ordered a pesto flatbread pizza which was terrible. Order carefully!

Very nice, quite and clean with average size rooms. Great views and walking trails on the property. The staff was very helpful. We had breakfast in the dining room and it was fair. We had dinner in the bar and the food was very good. There is wifi in the lobby but we were unsuccessful in getting connected. Just passing through for one night and it was a very nice refreshing place to stop.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a room with a view or you get the parking lot.
