OK property near Park entrance

Posted 09-Jul-2015
Pros: It was close to the park entrance, nice setting
Cons: The service!
Location: Close to the entrance of Denali National Park, good restaurants 7 miles north in town
The rooms were okay - not bad, not great. Beds were comfortable. Service was awful. Not enough towels in the room, so we called and called and called. We finally found the supplies room. In room coffee was never replaced once again we called and called - it never came. There are no room charges at this property, which I found out when I went down to the cafe to get coffee as noted before the coffee in the room. Restaurant service was fair. When I went to talk to the front desk about my concerns they could care less. I'll be back to Denali but not here

Many transportation options available. One restaurant stayed open til 10pm. Food was pricey but good. Most staff folks were young, friendly & helpful.

Good location near Denali Park.

Posted 20-Aug-2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Food
Location: Denali Park is great. Went whitewater rafting nd hiking
House cleaning was barely acceptable. The food served at the Lodge was not good except for the Breakfast Buffet. Next visit to Denali I would not stay there.

The biggest state in the union has a hotel with the smallest which I have ever stayed. What gives?

Hotel was completely and totally disappointing.

Posted 03-Aug-2014
Pros: Nothing! This room was substandard for a top level price . We complained, and were offered another room at an increased price. Took photos can't load
Cons: Everything! Cheap and nasty, a badly designed and badly finished room,minimized construction/ fitting costs. Exorbitant tariff for a mediocre stay
Location: The natural scenery is magnificent, wild flowers beautiful, animals wonderful, man's impact and exploitation utterly hideous, such a shame!
We were looking forward to, what had to be, going by the tariff, a luxury stay at The Denali Village Hotel, the most expensive room rate we have ever had in 40 years of travelling. We decided it had to be a special treat, we’d enjoy it as we had been advised there was no other accommodation in the region. I have to say we were completely and totally under whelmed. Actually, worse we were deeply and extremely disappointed, in our room at Denali Village Hotel. Far from being a swept up glamour number we’d expected for the exorbitant cost, it was a pared down to very basic, motel type room with, wait for it, 4 paper cups and a dripolater machine but no tea and no milk. Worse than that it was very dark and gloomy (only two low wattage light bulbs, these were in the wall mounted bedside lamps on the wall between the twin double beds) no air con just a cheap fan (unplugged) above the TV cabinet and worst of all it had a flight of steps (noisy and no privacy) right outside the only window that let in any light. Beyond the handrails of the staircase that covered much of the window was a very ugly excrescence created in corrugated iron, with bits of old cars and junk mounted on it. This ‘artwork’ screened the back door and vents of the fast food restaurant, BUT it didn’t eliminate the smells. From above we could hear voices and the floor creaking as they moved around. Blinds were furred with dust, room not vacuumed under table/chairs or beds. We took photos but nowhere to load em.

Conveniently located but very expensive

This is a case of "We got you". Facilities are limited near Denali National Park and this property is very close to the Park Entrance. Our two double bed room was reserved about two months prior to our visit and was still exceptionally high priced. The room was clean and well appointed, but quite small. Parking was also tight and the parking lot was unpaved, wet and muddy. The experience as a whole reminded us of Disneyworld, with the high cost and the feeling of being moved about like cattle. Still, access to Denali Park the reason for our staying there and that was great.

Not only is the hotel overpriced for what it is - they also overcharge you big time on the food and beverages.

Pros: Nearby everything you need.
Cons: Desk staff could have been a little more friendly.
Location: About six miles from Denali Park entrance and they have hiking trails along the River.
Beautiful room right on the Nenana River. Our room overlooked the river and we had the windows open to hear the rushing water. The gift shop and restaurant were great. But don't be one of the last to go to buffet breakfast - stingy towards the end. Nice little Miner's village to visit with fire pits. I would recommend this to anyone

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The property has everything you need from general store, restaurant, gift shop and games to entertain. Had a great meal with friendly and cheerful staff at the roadhouse. Very convenient for visiting park or shops in glitter gulch.
