WOW, What a great surprise! Everything we had was delicious and I would highly recommend. I was hoping for something a little bit better than down the hill but this place has 5 star food and reasonable prices.

Crow's Nest Resort > What People are Saying
“Incomparable accommodations, superb experience, and great value! I have had the remarkable opportunity to spend many a night on the property, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the Denali area. A truly extraordinary place, and I heartily...”
...recommend the Crow's Nest for anyone who is looking for the perfect complement to bookend their Denali National Park experience. Like the Park itself, your stay here will be delightfully unique, and be the basis for a most memorable Alaskan adventure that you simply can't get anywhere else. No car? No worries, as the complementary shuttle will see to your transportation needs to and from the railroad station, Park Visitor center and Wilderness Access Center, as well as the shops and restaurants along the Canyon. The individual en suite cabins are comfortable and well tended, staff is friendly and competent, and the restaurant on site is legendary. You will have the experience of a lifetime. Room Tip: Book early to get the dates you want - there is considerable demand.
The setting is rustic, cabin-like, but the menu shows ambition and ideas. And surprisingly the staff is kind, attentive, and careful in comparison with other Alaskan restaurants. Try the oysters: juicy, tasty! We recommend also King salmon in an original mexican-alaskan interpretation and a surprising burger with figs and goat cheese. We did not expect all this in the middle of Alaska!! Wine choice wide and fairly priced. The check was not cheap, but considering food (but not location) fair.

Imagine, flying 10 hours to get somewhere then training another 7 after that. You get off the train and look around for this shuttle you scheduled months ago. You think, "Man, I'm in the middle of NOWHERE. Where do I go from here?" Well, I looked around and saw a white van with the words Crows Nest on it so I was off to a good start. I flagged the guy down and he took over from there. I didn't have to lift a finger and when I tried to help he insisted he had it covered. Ok, I appreciate that. We head to the cabin and I have to admit, it was a bummer that the road was torn up because what would have been a 5 minute drive took almost 20. But it seems like there's only one road so what are you going to do? The check-in was smooth and the staff was friendly. I had an upper level cabin and they took my bags up for me. I immediately needed a shower after nearly 20 hours of travel. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot. They had some nice soaps so I didn't have to dig through my bag. Refreshed, I went in search of a bite and a cocktail. I needed a relaxed night before going into the park the next day so I stayed on property. The Overlook is their restaurant and I intend to review them separately. In short, it was outstanding! Back to the cabins. I had one of the best sleeps of any hotel I've stayed in. There was a TV but I wasn't really interested in that. The wi-fi was EVERYWHERE. In the room and the restaurant. Did I mention that I'm on the side of a mountain overlooking more mountains in a canyon in the middle of interior Alaska? There was a USB port that I appreciated and the coffee machine worked very well (nice not having to mess with grinds, easy Kurig set-up). Pricing: I booked a couple months out. I don't really care about the price as long as it's a solid place to stay. This place seemed to be in the sweet spot. Not as much as the prefab resorts but more than the motel-type spots. In the end, I call it a value. I don't care if I pay $50 more than a roadside joint. I want the views, a comfortable/clean room, and competent staff. Check, check, and check! Room Tip: Want a view, go to the top! Mobility issues, call and ask if they have a lower level room.
Best restaurant in Denali. The cocktails were fabulous the food was amazing, not only was it the best lamb I've ever had but the plating was beautiful. Our bartender Matt was fantastic lead us to cocktails we would enjoy and recommended an amazing dish. The lamb was outstanding. Not visiting the overlook would be a mistake! Enjoy the overlook!
