We did not book anything ahead during our trip through Alaska, we just drove around with a list af adresses when we stopped at Pat and Windell Pat and Windell's place looked nice; the inside was renovated in june/july 2008. Although the B&B is not right next to the main highway it is still very close to the Denali Park Entrance and you get a fantastic breakfast with it (unlike 5 others we checked out in Healy). If you are looking for an affordable place to stay and a chat about the surroundings, the history and free coffee/tea this is a good place to stay.
The hosts were VERY friendly, the place was their home.....They are obviously rural Alaskans living the lifestyle and willing to share it with traveliers. It could have been cleaner, but I have stayed in MUCH worse places. All in all, it was an adventure we would not have missed for the world. Try the Black Diamond restaurant in Healy and do not neglect to tell the staff to not overcook the salmon!
I was actually seriously considering staying at this B&B while going to Denali, but finally stayed at Denali Park Hotel instead. Actually checked out this place when I was at Healy, and was glad I didn't stay here!! While the host seemed quite genial, the place itself had a dull desolate air about it and seemed quite dirty. The front room had a kind of stench, and though the rooms were ok, it has to be way cleaner! Was glad we weren't staying there. They charge around 70-80$/night, and for just a few bucks more, there are many many better options around. While I do hate to say this since the host himself was quite nice, I'd recommend that you find a better place.
