Great little place to stay. Up a long and winding road overlooking Denali with great views of the surrounding mountains. Small rooms but adequate, nice restaurant and a free shuttle up and down the mountain. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great lobby where you can just sit or book tours.

Convenient place to stay. Near entrance to national park. Shuttle available to park entrance and to shops(for t-shirts and local art work) and restaurants Helpful staff. front desk had lots of info about local attractions Clean , adequate. Feel like all of the hotels in this area are overpriced, but they are all expensive. No budget options

Dee Dee O, Director of Sales at Denali Bluffs Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Jean L, thanks for your review. You are correct - there just aren't any budget options in Denali. As most all businesses in Denali are seasonal prices do reflect that although we are only open 5 months out of the year, the mortgage, etc. has to be paid for 7 months of the year when we are not generating...

There were 2 families travelling together and we both stayed at the Denali Bluffs. The main reception area was nice - great lodge feel to it. The rooms, however, were very small, and very dated. Transportation from and to the train station was nice.

The rooms at the hotel have exterior corridors and electronic locks, good views of mountains and trees. There are lower level rooms (the highest level is two stories) but check with staff when booking if you have mobility issues as there is a fairly steep hill to the rooms.

Dear MarylandCatmom, thanks so much for staying with us. Very good advice concerning the steps to the second story and also the walking paths.
