This lodge needs some lessons on excellent customer service with regards to food service. There are only 2 restaurants, resulting in long lines of people waiting to eat since there are no other options and we all arrive and leave st the same time. With what they charge for lodging, a faster restaurant service (maybe a buffet) would be more... More

Beautiful views of Denali, hard to beat actually if the mountain is visible. Common areas, restaurants, and variety of services provided very good. Rooms were a little dated but comfortable. Loved the grounds.

This is where we stayed our first night in AK, we were doing a road trip. The hardest part was finding it. The road had construction and heading north there did not appear to be a sign that you were approaching the lodge. We had to drive through the construction and then turn back. One of the workers took us... More

Don't expect much when you book. Rooms look like something from a super 8 motel, clean, but below average. Property is pretty enough, great views of the peak; also great hiking trails. Expect to pay $12 for a lunch wrap and well over $40 for a below average dinner meal. This was booked in conjunction with a land tour with... More

I understand we are out in the wilderness but to not have internet in the rooms and very slow at the main lodge is unacceptable in 2015. The bed sheets are poor quality. The rooms are not well decorated. It just does not give you a feel that I would expect Princess want you to experience.

My wife and I stayed at this facility on the land portion of our 2 week Princess cruise / tour. It was our first stop north of Anchorage on our way to Denali Princess Lodge. We stayed in Building 2. This building has 8 units on one level, though there is a fairly steep climb to the building. Lots of... More

Nice property and great view. You are close to nothing so expect overpriced food in the lodge restaurants. Alaska was unusually hot, hotel not prepared for hot but did have fans. Customer service was average.

We arrived here June 12, 2015 after a train ride from Princess Wilderness Lodge in Denali, an enjoyable short visit and lunch at Talkeetna, then a motor coach to McKinley Lodge. When we first arrived, the "Great One" had cloud cover but the view of it and the Alaskan range was still awesome from the deck of the main lodge.... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of out Princess Cruise and was very happy with the place. Stunning views of Mt McKinley from the back deck. The hotel and staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the shuttle service was perfect for my husband. The gift shop had more than enough things that... More

I booked with Princess cruise tours which included stays in three lodges in Alaska. My favourite by far was Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. The view from the main lodge, out back on their deck, of the Alaskan mountain range, including Mt. McKinley was spectacular. The mountain is often not seen but you have to wait around and check back... More
