The Mt McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge sits in a beautiful wildnerness pine forest and is a well kept, beautiful property. My favorite part of the lodge is the outdoor patio overlooking Mt McKinley - and you may or may not see the top of the mountain when you visit, but, no matter, the views are wonderful. We took a ranger... More

A little like a mid class motel but the area and view of Mt. McKinley are fantastic. No air conditioning so when we were there in July with high 70's and got to our room which was completely closed up it wasn't until the next day we were able to get it cooled down. Service in the main restaurant was... More

Rooms were clean and nice! Beautiful deck looking out at Mt. McKinley. Sign up at front desk for a telephone call if the mountain comes into view so you won't miss it! Also don't hesitate to take the shuttle into Talkeetna. Great little town! While in Talkeetna, grab breakfast for the next morning at Roadhouse.

Stayed here as a group of 4 in July 2015 to facilitate a couple trips in and around Talkeetna and Denali. We were unlucky with the weather, and didn't get to see the views that from the pictures online look like they were amazing, so that was a drag but obviously not the hotel's fault. The rooms were average, what... More

To our surprise we had a suite for the night. The suite had a nice living room/ kitchen combo that was roomy and well decorated. The furniture had a woodsy look with a beautiful carved bear coffee table. A portable fan was available to keep the room cool. The bathroom was spacious with a huge, deep tub. The bedroom had...

no transportation,in the middle of a wilderness (Alaska ) had low expectations and was surprised by both the quality and taste of the foods, cleanliness of the rooms,and pleasant grounds. After dinner a pleasing walk on the grounds and sitting at the camp fire with a glass of wine as well as a view of Denali ( not always seen... More

After securing a great last minute deal we added a 2 night stay at this beautiful property to a week in AK. We carefully considered previous reviews and overall found the property in good condition and the room spacious. After a day of outdoor AK adventures I also appreciated the instant hot water available in the tap and shower to... More

After two nights at the Princess Denali Wilderness Lodge we took the train (a very nice trip) to Talkeetna and then a bus to the Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge and was pleasantly surprised. While the rooms are very basic like the other lodge the setting is absolutely beautiful. Great paths to walk and beautiful grounds. Wish we'd had more time... More

It was such a relief to arrive at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. It was a beautiful setting, and the staff was very accommodating. The food was very, very good. We wished we could stay another day.

The Mt McKinley Lodge is set in a beautiful location with a view of Mt McKinley (on a clear day). The facility was comfortable; shuttles ran regularly. Food was very good and service was excellent. The staff at the Lodge genuinely seemed to enjoy their jobs...from the servers to the bus drivers to the tour guides.
