When I booked this earlier in the season, the reviews seemed pretty decent, but whatever happened this season, they're all pretty terrible. Unfortunately, it was too late to change my reservations by then (no later than 30 days). I was still hoping it would be ok. When we arrived, we got our key by going up to the lodge and...

Three friends traveling together with the intention of visiting Denali, we had reserved unit #18 for two nights. It had a queen bed and a futon with an upper loft with a vertical ladder climb up to a twin bed – the room shows its age and was very small for 3 adults. The bathroom/shower was also very small and...

The night before, we stayed at the McKinley Cabin Rentals which was more pricey but well worth it for the ammenities. We went to Denali park for the day and needed another place for the evening and this was the only place to stay closeby. we reserved pretty easily online. We got cabin #20 which had 3 beds, no wall...

This place is past it's heyday and greatly in need of maintenance and a significant facelift. Definitely not a resort! And the website is misleading in that it does not reflect the current state of the facility. The ensuite bathroom was a challenge to use due to size and plumbing issues. And the fourth bed was located in a loft...

Made an advance booking in one of their cottages for two night to be close to Denali. When we arrived at reception we read the note that the restaurant did not offer any dinner service anymore. When I asked the manager why that was, he responded that due to low occupancy he had to close the kitchen for the evening....

One of the main reasons I picked The Perch was because of the reviews of the restaurant. The other was to stay outside the built up 'Glitter Gulch'. One for two I guess. The restaurant had closed but the location was good, i.e. out in the country away from the built up big hotels. We were in cabin 18 which...

We arrived exhausted at 2:30 pm on Aug 17 after a late flight from Los Angeles and a long drive up from Anchorage. The first thing we noticed was a sign the restaurant was closed. We drove up the bumpy gravel road to the Perch office in the bar only to be told checkin was at 3 pm. We weren't...

A friend and I stayed two nights in cabin 17 this past week while visiting Denali. It worked okay for us, but only because of its location. First, the good news: the cabin was clean and the beds were comfortable. The Perch was conveniently located for our visit to Denali. It was quiet and we slept well. Now, the other...

This "resort" was truly terrible. I stayed here for 2 nights, and they were horrible. I don't know if the customer service or the shared bathrooms were worse. Within hours of getting there we realized our room was cold and the heater was not working, after talking to several people who said they would "come check it out" we were...

The Perch has potential but until owners even care to upgrade their "resort" don't waste your money. Cabin 10 had a horrible smelly moldy shower curtain - obvious fix - nope we had to request new shower curtain. No extra rolls of toilet paper - ran out. And no heat last night. At breakfast took over an hour to get...
