We stayed here as part of our Princess Cruise/Land Tour. Looks like it has beautiful views but it was rainy while we stayed here. Room was fine. We enjoyed a free lecture by some Mt Everest hikers. We just wished that it was closer to Talkeetna. It is quite a long shuttle ride to town. Talkeetna is a fun town... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge, but you should be prepared. Things to remember like lodging can vary. We had temperatures in the 80's in August. They do not have air conditioning. Not complaining, just a fact. We just opened the windows and made due. The sights where breath taking so you take the good with the bad. I... More

you are much better off going with Holland!! The staff at Princess are not helpful, don't really care about you and hrs want tips. We were mucked about so much with Princess, bad rooms with a gold out bed, even though paying the top price for double rooms - when they moved us it was next to a noisy elevator,... More

My son and I took the train from Anchorage and spent two nights at the lodge. It was cloudy and rainy when we arrived, but the sky began to clear during the evening and McKinley became visible. It was mid-August and we were taking photos at 10:30 PM! We were quite lucky because the mountain was visible for much of... More

Spent two nights here as part of a Princess land and sea cruise. The lodge is spectacular. Our room had a view of the river and mountains - wow! The property is expansive - restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. All in all, this is a great place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at the McKinley princess Wilderness Lodge on our tour of Alaska. We found our room to be spectacular. It was a large corner room, very nicely appointed, with a sitting area as well as a bedroom area. The room was clean and very comfortable. Next door was one of the several restaurants on the campus,... More

Second train destination on our Princess Land Tour ( on the way to "the boat" [ Coral Princess ] ). This is a fairly modern "lodge" style hotel. I'm inclined to give this a 4 rating as it is secluded, but with a spectacular view of Mt. McKinley fromt the main lodge. The large deck on the rear of the... More

We arrived around lunch time and found a clear view of Mt McKinley which we later heard was very unusual for the time of year. Our room was away from the main lodge building so was quiet. The rooms were average but clean and tidy. At the time of our visit the lodge was full and it was very difficult... More

This was my favourite of the three Princess lodges we stayed in in Alaska. I think it just had a wonderful setting and the buildings were so dispersed the place was really quite relaxing and had a beautiful ambience. We experienced some great mountain views too. Dinner in the restaurant was much to our satisfaction on both occasions and the... More

This resort is nicer and fresher with larger rooms. Plus you are much closer to Denali. You will probably have to walk the equivalent of a couple city blocks to get to the main lodge. If you have trouble with that, I'd ask for one of the nearer rooms. Alas, there is no signage and/or walkways from the lower loop... More
