My husband and I stayed for a night as part of a land tour from our cruise ship. Our room was on the ground floor of a two storey building. Above us you could hear every footstep, every drawer opening , conversations and television, and bathroom activity from room on the first floor. Location of hotel was lovely though but... More

Absolutely gorgeous lodge. Could not have asked for anything better. It was amazing sitting outside and the restaurants were great. The only down side was there was no wifi in the rooms, which is extremely inconvenient considering how far you have to go to the main building for wifi.

The Princess lodge building is incredible. There are many different types of seating areas and all with amazing views. I would be happy going and just sitting in the lodge. There are also sufficient food choices. The rooms are separate buildings spread across the grounds and are a bit rustic. The heat didn't work in our room (and we needed... More

We live in Alaska -- 30 years and counting - and have made this lodge our home away from home. Two or three visits a year have been in our regular plans. Like Princess Cruises, high standards of comfort, cleanliness, friendliness and response to guests in the norm. We love it and feel quite at home. Highly recommend a visit... More

I started staying here when the lodge first open in the late 1990's. I hadn't been back in ten years and was happy to see some improvements. I arrived on opening day and as with any seasonal property there were issues to address but that is not important. I was an independent traveler which means that I had my own... More

This hotel is in a remote area, but the location and scenery is excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The closest town is Talkeetna, an hour away by shuttle ($10 pp return). The dining options are good and reasonable cost.

Stayed here as part of the Princess Cruise. Don't expect a Four Star Hotel lodging but yet it wasn't a terrible lodge. There are several buildings throughout the area that house the rooms. The rooms are roomy and adequate for your stay. The Main Lodge is very nice with many amenities as well as areas to relax and enjoy the... More

Last summer I worked at the lodge, so I had access to all of the rooms. So I can tell you that even if you are not staying at apartment you can feel comfy and cozy. The rooms aren't very big, but if you are traveling alone or at least with one more person you gonna have plenty of space.I... More

Absolutely worth the money. This hotel is more like a lodge but has all the necessary amenities. It cannot be classified as LUXURY the way a 5 star hotel would be classified in a big city, but it is quite charming. A nice pre-cruise land tour. The hotel is located on an extraordinary site, we were blessed at Mont-McKinley was... More

We stayed 3 nights as part of our Alaskan Princess Cruise. Mt McKinley has very big lodges camp style lodges with individual rooms with ensuite. We arrived in light rain & cloud but were stunned when we woke up early next morning to see Mt McKinley in all its glory - quite breathtaking. The Lodge is rather isolated and aside... More
