The cabins appeared fairly new and were clean and very comfortable. The beds and pillows were great- better than many hotels we have stayed in. The views of the mountains and the adjacent creek were beautiful. There is even an outdoor gazebo for groups to gather and hang out.

Enjoyed the stay at Creekside Cabins. Not fancy but clean and comfortable. Great coffee in room. Nice touches of shampoo, lotions, soap, coffee, microwave,mini-fridge. We had 2 queen beds for a family of 4 (2 parents, teen daughters) so the one room cabin was just a little tight but not tight enough to ask for a second room. We were...

Staff was very friendly and helpful. View of the creek outside the door was nice. It must have flooded sometime as the base of the creek-side wall was water stained. The cabins were small and duplex style with not much (any?) insulation between them. We had good neighbors for the visit but you could hear them talk and the floor...

We rented a creek side cabin.The cabin itself was nothing special, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The sound of the creek outside the room was so peaceful. They had Adirondack chairs, so we could sit by the creek. They have an onsite restaurant, which is very convenient because there isn't much in the area. The food...

Cheap rates, local annual chili Cook off is a blast. Very cozy cabins and the firepit by the creek in the evening was a very welcome respite from a hectic-but fun!-Tour schedule. We also enjoyed the ATV tours at Black Diamond the front desk staff helped us book.

We drove to Denali from Anchorage and then stayed at McKinley Creekside Cabins for two nights. We spent the whole next day at Denali and left in the morning of the day after. We had a cabin by the creek, which is actually half of a cabin. It was sufficient for two people, had a bed, a fridge, a coffee...

Booked a room in the two story lodge ... Overlooked (partially) the river which was nice and had a little deck, but had to lug the bags up quite a few stairs. Would try to get in a cabin next time ( the ones we wanted were fully booked) as they looked lovely with deck chairs sitting out on the...

Four of us (2 adults + 2 children) stay in their chalet for 2 nights and it was much more than expected. The chalet was cosy, clean and could acomodate 6 people. Great kitchen, coffee, sugar and a coffee machine provided. Bathroom amenities as well. The cafe on the same property serves one of the best meals in town. On...

Stayed only one night before heading off to Denali Wilderness Park. The cabin was very roomy and the bed was very comfortable. The big surprise was the quality of the food in the café. To this day it was the best tasting salmon we had together with the guinness beef pie. All home made and all very very delicious. Followed...

The McKinley Creekside Cabin was the perfect place from which to visit Denali National Park. Our cabin was right beside the creek and had a small porch with a table and chairs.
