This lodge is very secluded. Our room was in a building a little way from the lodge. It was very dated but OK. We should have made dinner reservations as soon as we arrived, but went outside to look at the scenery first, which was magnificent. But we were going to have to wait until 9 pm for dinner so...

McKinley Lodge is in a beautiful setting, but it takes a while to get there. Our room was in a separate building, warm, comfortable, but a bit dated. The staff at the Lodge were courteous and helpful. We wish there would have been more movies or presentations about the area. We were on the last cruise of the season, so... More

Stayed here 2 nights as part of the land tour portion of a Princes cruise tour vacation. The room we were assigned was on the first floor with a view of the back of one of the restaurants and another service building. There was a paved path less than 3 ft from the window. Thus you could not have the... More

This place and Alaska in general should be on everyone's bucket list. There is some walking involved to each of the lodge buildings but you can call for a ride if you are unable to walk. We were fortunate enough to see the top if Mt McKinley. The facility, staff, and scenery were second to none. Only disappointment was not... More

We only spent one night after a Alaska Train trip from Anchorage and what seemed like a long( although only about 40 minute ) ride from Talkeetna. The staff were friendly and helpful the public rooms were quite beautiful.. This place was made for viewing Mt McKinley. This summer only about 10% saw it . With the rainy and cold... More

If climbing stairs is a problem, ask the location of your room. Each of the lodges have two floors and no elevators. After arriving at our lodge after 8:30 PM, we were too tired to try to arrange for a different room. Beds were very comfortable and hot showers a blessing! Moose and babies walked past our ledge this morning,... More

Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge was far more than I expected. First of all the staff was extra nice accommodating every request and they had answers to all our questions. But the most spectacular event was just sitting on their beautiful deck and watching Mt. McKinley appear from beneath the clouds - we were very fortunate to see the Mountain,... More

Recently went on our dream vacation - Alaska cruise and land package with Princess Cruises. Was very disappointed with land hotels. The lodge part was beautiful, but rooms were less than luxurious. For amount I paid, they should have been at least 3 star and up hotel rooms. They were not! Bedding/linens were very cheap and what would be expected... More

We stayed here as part of the land and sea cruise on Princess. You better have something to do here since it is in the middle of no where and food prices are a little high, and you are trapped there. Town is 30 miles away by bus ($10). See Talkeetna when you are in town from the train because... More

Having taken the land tour portion of the Alaskan Princess Cruise Line, we stayed in 3 of their lodges for 3 nights (1 night in each). We were never in the main lodge and in September it was cold, windy, and rainy in Alaska. In our particular room, I did not take off my shoes for fear of what my... More
