Rooms are clean, staff is pleasant and helpful, restaurant and bar available. I stayed there weekly last winter and some this winter. Quiet even when the rooms were full, so I slept well. Microwave and fridge in rooms.

I was in town for business and stayed here in one of the queen bedrooms. It was roomy, very clean, and affordable. It was nice that the restaurant and bar were right here too. The hotel was really quiet too, you would only occasionally hear a door and never really any voices. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here with friends in the end of Oct 2016. Had an extremely nice stay. Conveniently like 15 minutes north of Denali National Park entrance, the mountainous background is picturesque. The owner told us that on a good night, you can see the Northern Lights. It was a little annoying that you ant use the pool table unless our 21...

My husband and I Came here for a night during our honeymoon. Was in a great location and such an amazing view. Helpful staff. Way cheaper than the park hotels.. For just the short drive it's so worth the money.

This motel has nice, decent rooms—nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. The included breakfast is similar; scrambled eggs, a coffee machine so complicated that it took several people to figure it out but which made good coffee, toast, cereal, orange juice. There's a small fitness center (perhaps stretching the description), a bar and restaurant on the same property. The restaurant...

We came here for dinner on a Monday evening - it was the worst place we have eaten in Alaska. We were seated by a waitress who then ignored us for about 45 mins. The waitress proceeded to take orders from people who came in after us - they were obviously locals and known to her. After this happened two...

The price was good since we didn't want to pay the price for hotels in the park. Just 15 minutes from park entrance. They offered a free breakfast to start our day. Rooms were nice and clean. With two double beds they offered a small gym and sauna. They also had a restaurant on site. We ate up the street...

The Totem Inn is an excellent choice for a small town in Alaska, and the proximity to Denali Park can't be beat. The Inn offers a small fitness room, free wi-fi, free breakfast, on-site bar and restaurant, and a nice courtyard. Rooms are surprisingly spacious, and they come with a comfortable rocking chair, tv, table, microwave, refrigerator, and large private...

We found the inn to be nicely landscaped and well-outfitted for the travelers. The wheelchair-accessible parking is great for the companion restaurant but closer accessible parking needs to be provided for the inn. There is a good place which only needs additional signage to reserve a spot for handicapped guests. The inn is non-smoking during the summer but there is...

Stayed here on our weekend trip to Denali. The location wasn't too far from the park entrance and even better was its location right next to 49th state brewery. Rooms and breakfast were basic and all that we really needed. Lighting in the room was pretty low but not a big deal since it was summer. We also enjoyed a...
