We spent two nights in Denali Park Village, while we explored Denali Park. We stayed in a new cabin and the accommodations were lovely. However, in my opinion, they are experiencing growing pains. Not enough help to clean the rooms in a timely manner and the restaurant ran out of food both nights. Even the bar ran out of liquor,... More

The room was very good. it was clean and the room was very quiet. The hallway was dark because a light was burnt out. As this was my first time we were in Alaska and in the Denali region. The food in gold rush dining room was good but the server was Rude. The breakfast the next morning was great.

This place has a very inconvenient location, ten miles south of where most of the hotels and restaurants are located. Our room was small and we were awakened at 5:00 a.m. by tour groups and other traffic making noise under our window. The TV had 10 stations, and 3 of them weren't working. We had no WiFi reception in the... More

I'm surprised at all the negative reviews - we stayed here for a night and really enjoyed it. However, we did stay in a cabin so I cannot comment to the regular hotel rooms. While small I found the cabin to be super cute, nicely decorated, with a comfy bed and shower (especially after being squished in a cruise room... More

This lodge, made up of several buildings, was in a nice area overlooking the Nenana River, & near the park entrance but outside "Glitter Gulch". Nevertheless, it was extremely busy with tour buses coming & going. The staff was very busy, but friendly. We arrived after check-in time, but were told the room would not be ready for an hour....
