I stayed here with my dad and husband. Excellent all around! The cabin was beautiful, very new and very clean. The brook running along side the property really enhanced the experience. The staff was friendly and the food was very good. Great service. The only thing I did not like was the ugly gravel drive way winding around the cabins.

Thank you for choosing Creekside and taking time to review your stay. The gravel driveway is a challenge and not my favorite either...its a work in progress-always :-)

Stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Denali. Cabins are basic but comfortable. Creek right outside the front door. Drive to Denali is pretty short and scenic. The little restaurant is very good for both breakfast and dinner; must be a real chef in the kitchen. Great desserts. A very good place to stay when visiting Denali.

This was a basic cabin with a small refrigerator and microwave. It was very clean and the beds were some of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The pillows, sheets and comforters were wonderful! We stayed two nights while we visited Denali National Park for 2 days. It is just a short drive from the park entrance and close...

We stayed at McKinley Creekside four nights in September. We stayed in a Superior King room. It was clean, spacious and had a super comfortable bed. We were on the first floor and i wished they had window blinds that worked from the bottom up so we could still enjoy the mountain view and have a bit of privacy. We...

The cabins are comfortable, cozy, and placed so as to provide a sense of privacy. We stayed on the creek-side and enjoyed the porch (even in the rain) and the sound of the water against the rocks. We liked it so much we wanted to extend our stay. This property provides easy access to the park but avoids the kind...

This was our 2nd stay at McKinley Creekside Cabins. They remembered us and had a handwritten card in our cabin, welcoming us back which was a very nice touch. We were given one of the newer cabins right on the creek. It was very nice, much nicer than we were expecting. It was quiet at all times while we were...

The property is a series of cabins strung along a beautiful creek, with stunning snow-capped mountains very nearby. The cafe food is excellent, the staff friendly and efficient, the room clean and the vibe relaxed and welcoming. I will stay here again--just a beautiful setting at a great price.

We spent two nights in our cabin and had a nice time. As all the reviews have said, just wonderful happy staff that are eager to help you. We had signed up for a tour in Denali and they had more informative information for us that really helped us! We stayed in cabin 34 on the end. It was a...

We spent 3 nights of our honeymoon at McKinley Creekside Cabins. We had a room in the hotel type building rather than a cabin. The room was very clean with what looked like brand new everything. Had it been warmer we would've really enjoyed the patio that our room opened up to.

We were absolutely satisfied with our upstairs corner room with balcony facing the creek. Sound of the creek (without the TV/telephone interference) was serene. Cabin clean and neat; perfectly sized for two with table, dresser, mini-fridge, & coffee maker. Cafe food excellent with good service. We would stay here again and would recommend to others.

Thank F H
