This is a nice place. The staff was very nice and the room was fine. Just a couple of miles from everything in town (which is not much). I 20 minute drive to Denali. I would say this is worth the stay and the box lunch is good to take with you the next day. I would advise staying here.

Perfect location for Denali!
The staff was very friendly and helpful! Our room was large and very clean! Plenty of sleeping space! Excellent location if you want to be near Denali Park! The drive over is amazing! We would definitely stay here again!

Nice hotel, but the 1st floor can be noisy
The hotel is not far from the Park entrance. The staff is all very nice. Our room was simple, but very clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. Our beds were firm and comfortable. Breakfast bowls left in the refrigerator had fresh fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, fruit bars, and juice boxes
We ate twice at 49th State Brewing, which is very nearby.
The only problem I had was from being on the 1st floor, even though I requested the 2nd floor (and a quiet room) when I made the booking 1 month prior on Orbitz. I frequently heard the family above walking, which bothered me a lot, but not my wife. For a 2nd floor room, suggest emailing or calling the hotel right after reserving. I was told a room is assigned right after the reservation, and my request had been overlooked.

Great place, cute & family friendly
My best friend and I stayed one night in Aurora lodge and our expectations were greatly exceeded. This lodge was fully booked and many other families were staying there, however we didn’t hear anything disruptive. We felt very safe here being Floridians visiting Denali for the first time. The room was comfortable and very clean, and they provided individually wrapped breakfast items in the mini fridge for us upon our arrival (which was yogurt, apple, hard boiled egg, juice box, and granola bar). A microwave, extra fan, and TV were also available in the room. The front desk staff was also very friendly and gave great suggestions. The lodge is very close to the Denali park entrance, gas stations, and grocery store. We were lucky enough to have seen 7 moose (2 within the park and 5 along the road) and 3 caribou within the area. Only con would be that the wifi was not reliable, and the furniture was slightly outdated. Great place, I hope to come back.

A GREAT place to stay in Alaska near Denali National Park
We were greeted warmly. The rooms are very very clean. They provided a nice breakfast that you could enjoy in your room or take while hiking. The lodge is located about 11 miles from the entrance to the Denali National Park. We loved our stay in this lodge and highly reccomend!
