“Charming, clean, good self-serve breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

After a very long drive from Haines, we arrived late, tired and cranky and needed a clean room with a hot shower and comfortable bed. We were very pleasantly surprised. Our cabin was everything we needed it was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. The bathroom was spacious, clean and had plenty of hot water. The upstairs loft had 3 twin beds which my boys said they slept well in. DH and I slept like babies in the full bed downstairs-the bed and linens were great. There was coffee, microwave, and mini fridge in cabin. The breakfast was self-serve all morning and included just about anything you would want , except fruit. We appreciated the military discount and put this on our list of places to stay when we're up this way again. We've stayed at other motels in tok before, and thought that this place was a steal considering what you get for the money.

We stayed here after a long drive up from Haines. After our previous night's stay, this place was a very pleasant surprise. We were the only ones staying here, since it was November, but I get the feeling they are usually booked up in the summer, as they should be. The cabins are beautiful, with plenty of room inside. The Denali cabin we stayed in had a bed on the first floor, and another bed up in the loft. Although it was cold that night (-29 F), the inside of the cabin remained warm and comfortable. They also have outlets outside the cabin so that you can plug in your block heater, which you'll want to do if it's going to be that cold. An added plus is that they are a pet-friendly establishment. Breakfast is served in the morning in a room attached to the house. It's nothing fancy, just a standard continental breakfast, but it was very good. Our only complaint was the hot water, or lack thereof. We both attempted to take showers, but after around 15 seconds of hot water, it turned ice-cold. This was probably because it was so cold outside, and I'm sure it would work fine in the summer. Overall, it was a great night's stay, and we would definitely do it again.

These cabins are in a truly Alaskan setting, just a short 1/2 mile off highway, the cabins are nestled in amongst the trees, our cabin was comfortable and our golden retriever loved romping in the snow. I would highly recommend the Cabins, and will definately return for another visit!

We really enjoyed our stay at Caribou Cabins. The host was very nice and helpful. It was extremely quiet and comfortable. The cabins are new, clean, and well-kept. Breakfast was good, exactly as advertised - continental breakfast. I loved the quilts on the beds. Our cabin would have comfortably slept 7!

Cabin was clean and very nice. We were traveling with my 85 yearold parents that have modility issue and had the handicap cabin. The cabin accommondated us very well. We had a queen bed downstairs and three single beds in the loft. The bathroom was downstairs. I believe that the regular cabins had a sitting room down stairs. Breakfast was at the main house and consisted of breads, cereal, fruits and oatmeal. Roll your own style.

The probalem I had was the congeniality of the host. They did not act like they recognized at breakfast. The person that checked us in was very friendly.

Owners are very nice, they made sure we had everything when checking in and even helped us find vegetarian options for dinner in town and for breakfast at the cabin. Cabin was very clean and nicely set up. Internet was very fast. Very safe and quiet part of Tok.

Very comfortable and very affordable and off the beaten path, which is exactly what my husband and I like! The cabin was new and very clean and quaint. We are planning on going back to Caribou Cabins on our return trip through Tok! The owner was extremely helpful when I couldn't get onto my computer and the breakfast was great! Don't think twice about booking here!

Room Tip: Our cabin was very quiet and away from the other four - we had cabin #5.
