We are international travelers & for the extremely high price expected more. We requested a room in a quiet part of the resort & preferably on the top floor. We were advised by the front desk staff member that this should not be a problem. We arrived to find we were placed on the bottom floor in a building right on the main highway. After some negotiation we were allocated a cabin. The cabin would have been fine at a cost of one third of what we paid. It had broken doors & blinds, the floor was dirty & dust had built up on the curtains & carpet edges. Cobwebs were in most corners. The staff were apologetic but this does not sufice our dissatisfaction.

First it is the 21st century. Even cheap hotels have A/C! It was in the 80s outside and 90 inside. The room was old, an extension cord was used to plug in the clock and the light, a tiny fan provided their version of A/C. There was a family of elephants in the room above us. The bathroom was small. We did eat in the bar area and the service was excellent and food good. Thank goodness for Starbucks! Lobby was nice.

A/C in Bldg 700 only. A moose has "adopted" the site, so don't get too close to it.

This is a very nice resort with multiple buildings including a "lodge" with sit down dining (expensive), a general store, food trucks, a dinner theater, and several shops for tourist souvenirs. Our room was in the only air conditioned building, and it was very new & nice. The beds were very comfortable. We had a view of the river from our 2nd floor balcony. The balcony has a bistro table and 2 chairs. There is a walking trail right along the river on both sides of the lodge, but it has a lot of roots on the surface. Watch your step. There are benches to enjoy the view at various points. There is a hiking trail that leads outside the grounds the entire 9.1 miles to Denali Visitor's Center as well as trails that break off to go in other directions. See the front desk for maps. There are also regular shuttles that depart from the grounds to and from the Denali Visitor's center every hour. You may then change buses to take a regularly scheduled 4 hour shuttle into the park for either a round trip or to be dropped off at a campground. Beware of the resident moose and any other wildlife. Do not approach.

This is a really nice resort. Great location right near the entrance of Denali National Park. Many buildings with 2 floors of rooms which are very rustic and they look like log cabins. Our room was nice. Not too large. But still large enough.Bathroom was a little small. Food on the property is pricey.We just got snacks and they were expensive.The resort has shows and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and a general store.

No air conditioning in our building. You can open the window, however where are room is located you can hear buses pulling up all hours of the day & night. Beds 2 dbls, not sure if they have kings. Comfortable room. Single cup pod coffee maker, which is good enough. Staff is friendly, Starbucks if that's what you like. You can pre-order a box lunch for your tour, it was $18.50. They do have a few dining options, a bit pricey, but so is everything in Alaska. We took a shuttle into the 'Gulch' huge variety there for dining options. We tried the food truck across the road our 1st night. Sorry we didn't take a shuttle into the gulch. Hotel is located on the river.
