TripAdvisor Rating


It takes a village- for your family to have a great time in Alaska. Denali Park Village is a sprawling complex of buildings that include hotel rooms, cabins, restaurants, and shops, all set on 20 acres of prime riverfront property. For a small family, the Village Lodge Riverview room, with two queen beds and a rollaway or crib, is ideal. These clean, contemporary rooms have unimpeded views of the Nenana River and the mountains in the distance. Kids will love hanging out in the main lodge, with its high timbers, huge stone fireplaces and comfy couches. The game room has board games, puzzles, foosball and air hockey. Add in a few snack bars and coffee stands, and your kids might not want to leave. There are many dining options on the grounds, including the Gold Rush Dining Room, Lucky Miss Saloon and the Cabin Nite Dinner Theater, where you’ll enjoy an all-you-can-eat family-style dinner and a fun musical about the Alaskan Gold Rush.

Denali Park Village is surrounded by the looping Nenana River about 7 miles south of the Denali Park Visitor Center. There’s plenty to do right around the village, including several light hiking trails along the river, a large outdoor deck with fire pit and a small shopping center. The main lodge serves as a pick-up point for local wildlife tours, rafting adventures and guided nature hikes. When you’re ready to leave the property, free shuttle busses can take you to the park entrance, train depot or other local shops. If you’re looking for an all-in-one type of hotel that has easy access to the national park, then the Denali Park Village is worth looking at for your family vacation to Alaska.

This hotel could be so charming and wonderful, however, our room was not clean upon check in. It was obvious it hadn't been cleaned in some time as there were coffee stains on the counter around the coffee maker which I took care of myself with some scrubbing. I then went ahead and used disinfectant wipes to wipe the counters, nightstands and table in the room -- all of which were dirty. I don't need luxury, however, I do demand CLEAN! Also, we were the last group of the season which is no fault of ours. The staff were tired and looking forward to going home/vacation and it showed. The gift shop refrigerator was nearly empty with no water bottles stocked at all. The general store that was over where our room was was closed for the season. All of this made for a bleak stay and I think really the only positive this hotel has is its location.

Stopped here and it was half closed which was rather disappointing. Room good and place well kept right next to river with good walking around. Rather expensive for food and drink.
Staff good and helpful.
