The location of this hotel is great! You're right on a major road and near the Alaska Highway that leads to Denali. The room was well appointed and very clean. The breakfast was adequate. The front desk was very helpful.More

I visited these areas and only had a 2WD car without any problems. Santa Claus house is closed until May 1st. Chena hot springs, bring your own towel, they changed $5, per towel.
