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, end-of-season bonuses, 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!

The Employee Experience

You will work hard but you will have lots of 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 wandering our property on a regular basis!  You will enjoy living, working and playing with other cultured staff.  There are endless activities with discount pricing for our employees.  Everything you will need is right here on our property or just minutes away!  Our managers are professional team players that will do their best to make your 125 day Alaskan stay the best experience of your life!  

Ideal Candidate

We are looking for physically fit, health-conscious individuals with a strong work ethic. 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 and having the ability to get along well with others is essential to our working and living environment.  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.  Shared bathrooms with showers are just steps away from your room.  Towels are provided.

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

A shared full kitchen/lounge, with utensils, pots, and pans, also steps away.  Cleaning after you cook is essential and mandatory since these are shared quarters.  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, and a coffee shop.  We do occasional runs to Fairbanks where there is a Walmart and employees are welcome to come along. 

Employee Perks

There are endless recreational 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 with rental kayaks and bicycles available.  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. We are a locally owned independent hotel, not a large corporation. Which means you are a person here, not a number.
