need accomodation advice near Denali NP day before we take the 11 hour shuttle

We (2 adults + 1 5 year old) have rental cars and we don't mind driving a bit for a decent place for anything less than $150/night on7/2/2011.
We like to take the 11 hour bus shuttle to wonder lake the following day.
Any good place - Bed Brekfast, motel, hotel anything is fine.
Thanks.

The Denali Dome Home http://www.denalidomehome.com in nearby Healy. They are AAA 3-diamond rated and feature comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts and very gracious, helpful hosts.

In the immediate area, a good place to have dinner is the Black Diamond Grill http://www.blackdiamondgolf.com/Restaurant.html

We stayed at the Denali Park Hotel last June. The rates are less than $120 per night. We had a room with two queen beds, a microwave, mini refrigerator, and cable television. Free wi-fi is available and computers are available in the office (a converted railroad car).

We actually stayed at the same hotel years ago when we stayed in Denali Park; the hotel was moved from the park to its new location.

The website is: www.denaliparkhotel.com

It was clean and convenient. We had a car but they do offer a shuttle service.

Have you booked the shuttle ?
Sometimes hard to get at short notice

Guess what I just made in time for 5:15am bus shuttle to Wonderlake. Oh man, though I missed the Kantishna shuttle bus, I am hoping for cancellations. Wish I know info before, I'd have made my reservation earlier to the last stop.
