    When we got to our room we were very disappointed because it was not at all what they told us it would be. We ordered a room with a view of the river (paid extra for that view). We didnt have a view at all. The bathroom was dirty and there was dead bugs everywhere. There were live spiders all over the room. The controller for the tv was broken and so we went to call the desk to talk to them and all the buttons on the phone were missing. We went to the front desk at that time and asked why we didnt get the room with the view like we paid for. They tried to tell us that we asked for a special so thats the rooms they give for specials but we did not ask for that, we paid full price for a room with a view. At that time they were very pleasent and helpful. They gave us free breakfast for the next day and a upgrade for our second night there. We still didnt have a view of the river but it was a very nice room. So stay in cottonwood if u go there. All the staff was very nice and the overall experience was good. Dont think there is a room with a good view of the river.

    My wife and I won a spot in the Denali Road Lottery and were pleased to find a room open this late in the season (mid-Sept.). The cabin room was very nice for the money with a double and twin bed plus a pull out sofa, if necessary. The walls are kinda thin...could hear the guy next door snoring! And I attribute it to being close to closing date but the beds (both of them) had distinct slumps in them towards the center of the room. I solved the problem on the second night by flipping the mattress end to end and remaking the bed. We had dinner both nights at the bar which had its own menu or you could order from the main restaurant menu too....very good food. The facility overall was much better laid out than the Denali Princess which we checked out.

    McKinley Chalet Resort - It sounded so quaint. In fact, it is a sprawling empire. It seemed like there were thousands of folks from the cruise lines coming and going each day. That said, we were treated well and were lucky to get a nice room in the back by the rushing creek which provide wonderful ambient sound. It did provide us a great laugh. When we asked the hostess at the restaurant what she recommended - she looked around and then whispered "the Salmon Bake Restaurant across the street." By the way I do not recommend the Salmon Bake. Better to stay away from "Glitter Gulch." entirely.

  • We liked it!

    The Resort was very nice for the Denali area, although overpriced as is everything there. The rooms were in freestanding buildings in a wooded area, giving them a cabin atmosphere. we were able to get 2 rooms side by side at the bottom of the property by the river, which you could hear from your porch. The rooms were kind of rustic- wooden bed frames, nothing fancy. But were more than adequate, we had a double and a twin, a wardrobe cabinet (not closet), sink in the bedroom, large bathroom with big shower and a living room with a fold out couch, small table and 2 chairs. We loved the atmosphere. Restaurants were nice and clean and the food was unremarkable but fine. It's hard to decide where to stay when you have never been to a place but this is a safe bet. Most other places nearby seemed about the same. one advantage is that the park tours pick up and drop off right at the front, which is nice when you are catching a bus at 630 am.

  • Would stay again!

    First let me say this is a park location. Those people negatively commenting on the rooms not being 5 star should visit else where than a National Park location. We loved Mckinley Chalets. We are local Alaskans and took the Alaska Rail Road package trip. Our room was down the hill behind the main hotel in one of the Chalets. The rooms have a large seating/ living area in the front with a hide a bed sofa, table with 2 chairs and a nice window. The bathrooms have been remodeled and are very nice and include a huge shower that is level with the floor. The sink vanity is located in the bedroom, which is separated from the living room by a door. Bedroom includes full size bed and one twin, Tv, and a closet area. There is steep hill to get up to the main hotel but they have shuttle that picks up every 10 mins. Excellent dining, spendy though. Tour desk was great! Did a hike tour and river rafting. This hotel is also the hub for tour pick ups so is a great location. Will definitley stay again.
