We needed to stay the night in the Glennallen area, so we stayed at the Caribou Hotel. The rooms were basic and clean, and there was a restaurant nearby. On the plus side, there are ample television channels, free WiFi, a table and desk with chairs, and nice towels. The staff at check-in and check-out were friendly. Areas of improvement... More

Good place for just a night stop, because it seemed that there was nothing around to do, except to have dinner a sleep. Clean and comfortable room, free wifi, free coffee at the lobby, and nice staff.

Caribou hotel is mid-way between Tok and Anchorage. We've stayed there several times as it's only hotel we've found in Glenallen. It looks like they've taken away their older TAPS dorms and remodelled the other rooms. Ours was clean and nicely furnished with solid wood furniture, although the shower could afford to be refinished too. Internet was a bit spotty.... More

This hotel seemed scary after reading all the old reviews. We didn't have a choice since we planned our itinerary around stopping in this town. The initial stop was fine. The outside and lobby is very nice and scenery outside is what I would expect in Alaska. It's fit in with everything else so far. Yes, the hallway was outdated.... More

Now calling it The New...looks like some improvements in process. Room was clean and size good for Alaska. Desk staff were all very friendly and helped us find something to do...a nice hike. We would have shipped Glennallen had we known there is Nothing to do. Desk staff made us a fresh pot of coffee at 3pm and the coffee... More

We stopped on the way to Tangle Lake to get some sleep before making the rest of the drive. Originally we had intended on staying at a place in Copper Center but they did not have late check in (we showed up to a dark building). The TV was updated and had DirectTV (noted in a past review that their... More

We spent one night there in August of 2016. The room had not been cleaned well, found bottle caps under the bed. The pillows were rock hard. There was plenty of hot water for showers, the towels were fresh. There was only one drinking cup in the room. I know they are working on the place, the parking lot is... More

We stayed at the Caribou hotel in Glennallen in July 2016. The property is dated, but is under new ownership and management. Several updates and upgrades already. Great service. WiFi and good tv. Definitely a destination area. Wrangell St Elias is definitely an area to go to when you come to ALASKA.

We stayed 2 separate nights before and after going to Kennicott. The hotel kindly let us leave our car there while we took the shuttle to Kennicott. The 1st night we had a room with a new bed and pillows and TV, but the room itself and bathroom needs new fixtures. The 2nd night was horrible. The bed was hard... More

If you just need a place to crash with full service hookups this campground will meet your needs. Don't expect any type of beautiful landscape or extraordinary service. This campground has what you need for an overnight stay. Surface is gravel and River Rock. Most sites are level. Price is high at $35 imho but when you really need full... More
