We were at the lodge for two nights while on the land portion of a two-week tour. The lodge was very nice - rustic with lots of seating, indoor and outdoor, spaces and nice decks to use to look at the mountains. It rains quite a bit, or did while we were there, but we were able to see almost... More

This hotel was part of a package with Princess cruise land tour. We also stayed in the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge, which is very similar to this one. As mentioned the viewing deck is really nice to view Mt. McKinley when visible. The grounds are clean and nice landscaping throughout. They have trails on the grounds you can walk or... More

This was the most rustic of the 3 hotels we stayed in - the others were Princess Lodges in Fairbanks and Denali. It had a great outside viewing deck to view and take photos of Mt. McKinley when it was visible. We had great views from our arrival at 3PM until dark. The next morning the clouds hunkered in, cloaking... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a Princess cruise deal. The hotel buildings are set out in blocks similar to a Summer Camp. The rooms are spartan but clean and very spacious with a very large bathroom and a king size bed. The day we arrived they had a power black out and this disrupted the evening meals... More

Of course it was beautiful...we got to see Mt. McKinley!!! the lodge was very nice, many buildings with walking/hiking trails, a fire pit area (which would have been great to sit by the fire and make s'mores, for a fee, if it hadn't been raining) and lots of decks to sit on, relax and enjoy the views. Food is pricey,... More

This is a beautiful lodge located 45 minutes from nearest town. The main building is awesome; nicely laid out. main building gets 5 *'s The rooms are in separate buildings. The problem is the blocks of rooms are secluded. Was disappointed, only had view of parking lot. I was in the last block...which was a good hike down from the... More

Don't get me wrong the view of Denali was indeed fantastic. The weather was clear and we actually got great views of the mountain. It was peaceful and relaxing as well. The issue is that there is not much to do on site unless you pay for an excursion or travel an hour shuttle to Talkeetna. The views from the... More

What a special place, located in the middle of "no where". Nature was amazing. Stunning views, especially of Mt Mc Kinley. A couple of short trails for walking and running. A fire place with a kiosk outside. And a few different options for dining. Rooms and beds were good. No wifi in rooms and really no need for that, but... More

Visited here with a friend & sadly we were not in the 31% that had a clear day to see the mountain! The grounds are sprawling but manageable with the shuttles. The rooms are basic, clean, but be sure & ask for a first floor room if you have difficulty with stairs. The main lodge restaurant food was ok, expensive,... More

Disappointed is what I felt. Lodge and rooms are nice, you are in the wilderness, so why don't the rooms all have views of the awesome Alaskan wilderness ? No internet in rooms. Just lobby, prices are high And you are limited to eating at the lodge Unless you want to pay shuttle to go into town (?)
