We really enjoyed our stay here. Since it's in Healy, it is about a 10 min drive to Denali Park entrance, but it's a pretty drive. There's a cafe nearby that was closed while we were there, but note that there's not much else in terms of food. There is a grocery store about a mile down the road. Room was super clean and very spacious. We were located at the end of the hallway so the door to the outside was a bit loud at night with people going in and out so glad there weren't too many guests. Good public patio area to hang out looking for moose. :) Because of COVID, breakfast package consisted of yogurt, hardboiled eggs, juice boxes and granola bars. There's Keurig coffee in the room, but also additional coffee and tea in the lobby area. Overall, a great place to stay while exploring Denali.

Breakfast bowls delivered to the room before check-in and the following day/s was a nice touch. Lobby drinks were good to have. Bathrooms were clean, we just had a slow drain issue which I informed them about at checkout. One thing I couldn’t get over was the lobby smell. Not sure what it was - not coffee, not Fritos, which made me wonder if someone was smoking somewhere or if the lodge just needed deep cleaning in the main halls. Just in the halls, not in our room.

We had a lovely stay at the quiet and quaint Aurora Denali Lodge. Good shower, comfy beds and great location for touring Denali National Park. We were sad to go!
