We only spent one night after a Alaska Train trip from Anchorage and what seemed like a long( although only about 40 minute ) ride from Talkeetna. The staff were friendly and helpful the public rooms were quite beautiful.. This place was made for viewing Mt McKinley. This summer only about 10% saw it . With the rainy and cold... More

If climbing stairs is a problem, ask the location of your room. Each of the lodges have two floors and no elevators. After arriving at our lodge after 8:30 PM, we were too tired to try to arrange for a different room. Beds were very comfortable and hot showers a blessing! Moose and babies walked past our ledge this morning,... More

Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge was far more than I expected. First of all the staff was extra nice accommodating every request and they had answers to all our questions. But the most spectacular event was just sitting on their beautiful deck and watching Mt. McKinley appear from beneath the clouds - we were very fortunate to see the Mountain,... More

Recently went on our dream vacation - Alaska cruise and land package with Princess Cruises. Was very disappointed with land hotels. The lodge part was beautiful, but rooms were less than luxurious. For amount I paid, they should have been at least 3 star and up hotel rooms. They were not! Bedding/linens were very cheap and what would be expected... More

We stayed here as part of the land and sea cruise on Princess. You better have something to do here since it is in the middle of no where and food prices are a little high, and you are trapped there. Town is 30 miles away by bus ($10). See Talkeetna when you are in town from the train because... More

Having taken the land tour portion of the Alaskan Princess Cruise Line, we stayed in 3 of their lodges for 3 nights (1 night in each). We were never in the main lodge and in September it was cold, windy, and rainy in Alaska. In our particular room, I did not take off my shoes for fear of what my... More

Great balcony with the perfect view of Denali/Mt McKinley. The beds were so very comfortable and the hotel was great. Socializing and making new friends by the fire pits was great. Lots of little trails close by. Shuttles to the ranger stations and dog kennels. So fun! They provided wake up calls for when the mountain was visible and for... More

Provides direct views of the Mt.McKinley mountain in good weather. With Bonfires and gift shop and multiple restaurants on site. Nice Princess land and tour service. Far from Talkeetna city need to take their transport which is extra $.

It was an o.k place. Ranks 2 of the 3 Princess Lodges we visited. Rooms are in pods separate from lobby, some a hefty walk. There's a shuttle van, but who wants to do that to go get breakfast? Fortunately we were near the lobby. Mount McKinley/Denali was in hiding the day we were there, but we were fortunate enough... More

We drove there directly from Airport. 2-2.5hrs drive via Old Glen Highway road. Its exactly in between Anchorage and Denali. So leaving a day early and spending a night here is a great idea. It has an amazing viewing deck. On a clear day, you can see Mt. McKinley clearly and I might say one of the best views. Excellent... More
