About Denali Park Hotel

We strive to give our guests the very best Alaskan experience and we do the same for our staff. We offer above-average wages, end-of-season bonuses, private on-site housing for just $5 a night and a more family-friendly work environment. Skip the big corporations and come work with us! We appreciate smart, ambitious, hard-working team players.    

The Employee Experience

We are a very busy motel-style property and our rooms must be cleaned perfectly for our guests.  So you will work hard but you will have time to play, too!  You will be surrounded by the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets!  Mountains will surround your every moment!  You will see up close and personal our amazing resident Moose and other wildlife wandering our property on a regular basis!  

There are endless activities including a 7-tier Zipline, River Water Rafting, Glider Plane Glacier Excursions, ATV's and Golf, all either free or at discount pricing for our staff. If you enjoy hiking there are hundreds of trails for all levels, both in and around Denali National Park and our property!  Otto Lake is within walking distance.  There you can fish, swim, kayak, picnic and relax on your off days. 

Everything you will need is right here on our property or just minutes away!  Our managers are professional team players that work right along with you and will do their best to make your 125-day Alaskan stay the best experience of your life!  

Ideal Candidate

We are only looking for mature, responsible, ambitious, physically fit individuals with strong work ethics that understand first and foremost we have a business to run and a job to do.  Work comes first and housekeeping is the most important job!.  We encourage a positive attitude. People with happy personalities will do well here.  We are a small property with a small staff so being a team player, giving 110% and willing to go the extra mile if the need arises is a must.  Having the ability to get along well with others is essential to our working and living environment.  This is a seasonal job operating just four months so you must be willing to be available, flexible and adaptable to the work schedule required.  Visit our official website at denaliparkhotel.com for more info and to view our guest rooms and property. *You must be respectful of your fellow coworkers at all times.  Applicants looking to "party" need not apply!  We are a "drug-free" zone.

Room and Board

A big plus is we offer on-site, single-room occupancy housing for employees.  Cost is just $5 per day, about the cost of a Latte'.  Each room has basic furniture, bed, bedding and WiFi internet.  Nothing fancy, but cozy and warm.  (See a room photo in the slideshow). Shared bathrooms with showers are just steps away from your room.  Towels are provided and free laundry privileges, too.

*Please Note: Single room occupancy is limited so apply asap to guarantee your own private room.

A shared fully equipped kitchen/lounge for you to cook your own meals and save $.  Since these are shared quarters, you are expected to clean up in the kitchen and bathrooms after every use.  We do not provide food so you will need to buy and cook your own meals.  A grocery store and several convenience stores are just a mile up the road, as well as restaurants, a brewery, coffee shop, library and bank.  In addition, we do make several trips a month to Fairbanks, too, and whenever possible, based on work demands, you may come along.  You can always order things online and have them sent here, as well.

Employee Perks

There are endless recreational opportunities in Denali, from backcountry camping in Denali National Park to flightseeing tours (reduced fees).  There’s a lake less than a mile from our property and we have a Kayak for our staff to use.  Most of the activities in the area will offer great discounts to familiarize you with their businesses.

We offer very competitive wages and combined with our inexpensive on-site housing means you will make the best money in the area.  Our staff size is small, just 10-12 usually, so unlike the bigger companies, you will only share bathrooms and kitchen facilities with a few others.  We are a locally owned, independent, motel-style property not a large corporation, which means you are a person here, not a number.  

Getting Here and Getting Around

Alaska Yukon Trails offers daily service to Denali from Anchorage and Fairbanks. http://www.alaskashuttle.com

Your best and least expensive way to travel is by plane arriving in Fairbanks just two hours from our property.  If possible we may be able to pick you up from the Fairbanks airport, though this is not guaranteed.

We do occasional runs to Fairbanks where there is a Walmart and other stores you would find in the lower 48 and employees are welcome to come along. Just up the road is the Denali Canyon tourist area with more shops, restaurants and fun things to do!  Hiking trails are everywhere and you are just 10 miles from Denali National Park.  *Usually there is a $5 shuttle service available from Healy to the Canyon area.
