This place is the bomb! (That's a good thing). How many places can you go with a glacier out your door? Glacierologysts (is that a word) come here from round' the world to study. Get your butt out there and take advantage of the terrific outdoor guides (outside the lodge door). Yes, they have shared bathrooms but pretend you're a... More

Expensive -- very isolated. At least a seven hour drive east from Anchorage, the last 60 miles of which is on a pretty good (the days we drove it) gravel road, the "McCarthy Road." Very few rental cars are available for this trip, and though we'd "reserved" one from Budget (the only major company that will rent a car for... More

The lodge is beautiful with access to great hikes in the midst of Wrangell St Elias. Rooms are clean, meals are nice (although dinner has a set menu per day with no options and at a set time). The downside is that the main lodge has shared bathrooms and there may be a slight wait to take a shower or... More

The hotel is located in the middle of "nowhere". The way to arrive to the hotel is by flight in a light plane or by car that can pass through difficult way. Lovely view from the room. Nearby is the old copper mine of Kennicott. Within walking distance of 3 km is there is the Kennicott glacier. It's possible to... More

I've been here many times before. Yes, the lodge can have a few quirks. If you stay in the main lodge, you will deal with shared bathrooms and creaky floors. If you stay in the new wing, you will deal with stiff beds and somewhat marginal rooms . . . The staff can be a little uneven, my companion was... More

The lodge is in the middle of nowhere so it is appropriately priced. The "bathrooms down the hall" was not too bad BUT it is VERY noisy. The floors are wooden and creak and everyone slams doors and walks right by your window (with your head 3" away) while on their way to breakfast chatting. If you don't plan on... More

We did not actually stay at the lodge but we did eat lunch on the front porch. Amazing food and awesome views as well as great service from the wait staff. They were able to totally accomodate us and it was such a beautiful day, we lingered in the sunshine and just totally relaxed! A truly subliminal experience.

We stayed at Kennicott Glacier Lodge from 8-11 August, 2014. The first two nights we had a shared bathroom, but everything was very clean and even though it was really busy, there was hardly any waiting time for the showers because they had some good rules (5 min. for a shower) that everybody followed. The third night we changed rooms... More

Rooms are tiny but adequate. It's a small price to pay for being able to enjoy some of the lodge's incredible food in the gorgeous town of Kennecott. I highly recommend making the time to come to Kennecott and stay at the Kennicott Glacier Lodge. (I don't recommend making time to go to the nearly town of McCarthy.)
