About Denali Park Hotel

We strive to give our guests the very best Alaskan experience and we work to do the same for our employees. We offer above-average wages, on-site housing and a friendly, relaxed work environment. Skip the big corporations and put your skills to work with us. We appreciate smart hard workers!

Ideal Candidate

We ask only that you have a healthy work ethic and strive to do your job well. We encourage a positive attitude. People without happy and positive personalities will not like working for us and will very likely not finish the season nor collect a bonus check. We all work and live in the same place for 125 days, you must be able to respect your fellow coworker. People who party a lot or have a drug problem will definitely not be with us for long and should not bother to apply!

Room and Board

We have on-site housing for employees. Cost is $5 per day. Each room has basic furniture, bed and bedding and a internet. A big plus is you will have single room occupancy. Your private room allows you to sleep and have privacy at your discretion. A shared bath is steps away.

A shared kitchen with utensils, pots and pans area is also nearby. Cleaning after you cook is essential since other staff members have different schedules. Adjoining the kitchen is an employee lounge.  Staff is required to buy and cook their own food. Small food stores are nearby (1.5 mile) in the town of Healy. We do regular runs to Fairbanks for hotel supplies and employees are welcome to come along. You will have a few hours at a grocery store to shop for food and other needs.

Employee Perks

There are endless recreation opportunities in Denali, from backcountry camping in Denali National Park to flight seeing tours (reduced fees). There’s even a lake less than a mile from our hotel and there are rental kayaks and bicycles. Most of the activities in the area will offer great discounts to familiarize yourself 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. We are a locally owned independent hotel, not a large corporation. Which means you are a person here, not a number.
