Denali River Cabins
Cabins in Denali
We changed our itinerary and showed up in Denali a day ahead of schedule. We checked 3 different motels, which were all full, before finding Denali River Cabins.
We were pleased with the condition and location. For walking in with no reservation, we were given a rate of $139/night plus tax, and had a river-view cabin with 2 queen beds. The cabins are separate, but very close together, and reached by walking down a wooden board-walk. We were at the end of the boardwalk, so we only had one "neighbor", but I thought it had the best view of the river. I loved the dutch doors! The cabin itself was really just a basic hotel room, with the 2 beds, sink out in the main area, and bathroom with shower and toilet. One drawback was that the bathroom door was a sliding (rather than swinging) door, and didn't close completely.
There was cable TV, but only a few channels. But who wants to sit and watch TV, when there is so much to do at Denali!
Unique Quality: The cabins are nextdoor to McKinley Village Resort, where a lot of tour buses from the cruise lines lodge their customers. There is a restaurant at the Denali River Cabins, plus a restaurant at the McKinley Village Resort. Also an espresso stand at the resort (good coffee!), and a tour desk for activities.
Several raft companies launch in the Nenana River right in front of the cabins. It was enjoyable to watch the rafters come and go.
