This lodge has an outstanding location and nice amenities. We saw Mt McKinley which was a real treat. The fire pit, rooms and hiking trails made for a nice stay. There is a shuttle to Talkeetna which is $10 each way but it takes more than one hour. We had lunch and dinner in Talkeetna, so we did not spend... More

Full disclosure: My review is probably influenced by the great weather we had when we stayed there. If you are among the lucky 30% who get to see the mountain you are in for a treat. If you were like us and had a chance to sit and watch the mountain change throughout the day you will walk away amazed... More

This is a fairly remote location with lodging units scattered over the property. None are terribly far from the main building, and once you get your bearings, you could be at the lodge in substantially less than a ten minute walk. If you would prefer to ride, a shuttle will be by in no more than twenty minutes. The grounds... More

I read other reviews about disappointment over not seeing the mountain - not sure how that really fits in the review of the hotel as there is nothing they can do to control that. Anyway, we were lucky to have clear views of the mountains and peaks. Plural because there are so many of them not just Mt.McKinley. Now about... More

This is a large scale complex situated pretty far from nowhere. It is relatively modern and in a good state of repair. However .... Our room in block 21 was the furthest from the main lodge buildings where there is food, internet (just) and safe boxes. Our choice was a wait of up to 20 minutes for a shuttle bus... More

I stayed here the night before a charter flight out of Talkeetna. Honestly, the real reason I chose to stay here was because of the chance to possibly see Mount McKinley, depending on the weather. My room was fine, although I was surprised to be put into an upstairs room when I specifically requested a room downstairs. There are no... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a cruisetour with Princess cruises. The room was average. Very nice scenery, but I was told that on most days it is cloudy outside, so don't expect to see Mt. McKinley. They did say that if I really wanted to see the Mountain, I could alert the front desk and they would... More

We loved our stay here! Everything about the Lodge was wonderful! The view, the staff, the lodge and our room were all excellent! We would most definitely stay here again! You won't be disappointed, I promise.

This was our last Princess lodge stop before boarding the ship and the only room out of the three we stayed in that deserved the Princess name. The room was modern, spacious and clean. The room had a nice size bathroom, an entry area and a wonderful comfy bed in the main sleeping room. We enjoyed the main lodge as... More

I was suprised to find this place to be as nice as it was. The property definately has that "Wilderness Lodge" feel. We loved the hot tubs and the fire pits. The location offers a great view of Mt. McKinley if it is out. Very large property and there is a shuttle that runs between all the buildings. This propert... More
