White Moose Lodge
Reviewed 11 December 2013

White Moose Lodge is a good motel for the price you pay since all motels are expensive in Alaska during the peak season. We went there at the end of August and paid $115 for three people but my friends paid $105 for four people. It is a small basic motel but clean. Elsewhere outside of Alaska you would expect to pay $40 for such motels. The heating element was located near the floor and the dial was sensitive. If not selected correctly the room would get soo hot so we turned it off before leaving the room. We only stayed for two nights at this motel. The view outside is rustic and I find it very pleasing. I loved the rustic nature of this motel. I have included some photos along with the review. The floorboards outside the rooms creak as you walk so some people may get disturbed when people walk outside.

This was a great motel for the Denali area if you are looking for a basic room without the frills at a very good price. Rooms are big and clean. If you want all teh frills, this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for a resonable priced room in an extremel;y overpriced area, this is a perfect place.

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Denali. This is an older motel but it was very clean. It sits off the road and is surrounded by woods. It is a short drive to Denali. There is no AC but a fan is provided. With the window open and the fan going, it wasn't too uncomfortable in the room. The rooms have satellite TV which is a must have for my husband. They even provided pastries & coffee in the mornings. The price was extremely reasonable when compared to other places we stayed in Alaska. The only downside to the room was the height of the shower head. My husband & I are both under 5'5" and we had to bend down to wash our hair in the shower. I don't know what a tall person would have done. I don't know if all the rooms have this problem or not. I'm not positive but I think we stayed in Room 5.

The White Moose Lodge is just north of the entrance to Denali State Park but the rates are so much better than those close to the park. The motel is VERY basic--no frills!!-but it was clean and the beds were comfortable--I slept like a log! The rooms aren't very soundproof--so if you are bothered by your neighbors walking around in their rooms, bring earplugs. We didn't see management at all once we checked in for a three night stay--but we didn't have any problems, so that was fine. We only paid $85 a night during the off season which is a bargain for the area. We went across the street to the 49th State Brewery which has good food and even better beer--it's not cheap but reasonable I guess for Alaska where food seemed pretty expensive to us!

We visit Denali every fall and stay at White Moose Lodge whenever they have rooms available. It's clean, convenient, reliable, affordable (for Alaska), a little on the spartan side, and not hard to find if you are looking for it, although I've driven by the sign at least once at night. Continental breakfast is limited to coffee, OJ, tea, and sweet pastry. Rooms open to a covered boardwalk outside. The views driving back to Denali National Park from the motel are what people come to Alaska for.

If you are looking for a less expensive place to stay, this would be decent alternative.
Pretty Spartan, but then again; it's not easy to find anything in this region for $ 85. Because of the Denali Park Road Lottery ( where they raffle entry tickets into the far regions of the park, normally only accessible by bus-tour) there were 400 extra cars for 4 days going into the park, and all these people were taking up the available hotel space.
Room was clean, and had all the necessary; 2 good queen-size beds TV, hot water , shampoos, soap and towels.
Located right across a nice sample of Alaskan Tundra.
We only saw the manager/receptionist for a short time. To pay for our night and to pick up some wrapped danish which they called breakfast. Sorry, the coffee was old and terrible. It would be better to have little coffee makers in the room
