We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of September. The Inn iis at the end of the paved section of Denali Highway. We saw stunning scenery on the drive from the start of the highway (tuen off on the fairbanks to valdez road).to the inn. Cabin accommodations are clean and tidy but are economy finishes and true Alaskan...

A friend and I took a road trip that included the Denali Highway... and the Milepost suggested that no trip on the Denali was complete without pie from the Tangle River Inn. We ordered pie to go and we didn't look at the pie in the take out boxes. Our bad on that account. But neither did the waiter tell...

Here someone who is really not afraid of Tribpadvisor or other ratings... It has free parking. That's it for the benefits. Really not nice, very aggressive tenant, disgusting food, even the salmon could not be eaten. Don't expect free internet, they claim that the dish has been moved by the wind to ask you to pay more than $8 to...

Had a little adventure driving the Alaska Highway. Long story short blew two tires in the middle essentially no where. Slept in the car until about 5 am and saw the lights of this place. Walked the two miles or so here and we were saved. Better than what I can say for calling triple AAA. We were offered a...

This place is only open in the summer months as the Denali Highway is closed outside of May-Sep. It is located at the end of the 20 miles paved section of road west of Paxson. Nothing in Paxson, so this is your stop for gas, bathroom break, food and drinks. We stopped here on our way to Denali National Park,...

After a fantastic drive across the Denali Highway (which is not exactly a highway!), you can stay in the Tangle River Inn. A very peculair, but charming place. Expect nothing but a bed and a room to store your luggage. It's surroundings and location are perfect. Not even the cranky beaver at the river put us off. Rooms could use...

The Inn is one of two lodging possibilities near Paxson, where the two are twenty miles apart. Stunning view from lodge, and true Alaskan feel. Cabin accommodations are clean and tidy but are economy finishes. Food was good at the main Lodge and is truly the only game in town. Come here for friendly and generous proprietor and staff and...

The inn was straight out of a comedy. The rooms were spacious but tacky, in fact our ceiling was covered in particle board and the curtains were repurposed towels. Also, the price was not good for the quality accommodations. They charge for Internet and the lady at the front desk became defensive when she thought we were accessing it without...

We (2 couples) stayed here in July, 2016 for one night. We got in early enough to go for a hike around nearby Tangle Lake. Beautiful views and relaxing quiet. Our accommodation was basic but roomy. Large rooms and comfortable beds. Everything worked just fine - they run on generators so we tried to be careful about use of power....

We stopped here back in September 2014 after a long day on the Denali Hwy. Situated in beautiful surroundings, the lodge and the inn are a must stop for anyone traversing on the highway east to west. The rooms and amenities appear to be bare minimum elsewhere but are much appreciated here in this remote location. Powered by generators, there...

“We were in the Buffalo cabin, which is a Duplex unit. It was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. It did take a few minutes for the hot water to arrive at the shower, but just as I was about to call it quits, it kicked in and there was plenty of hot water.”
