If you're visiting Wrangell-St. Elias, you need to make a choice. If you're day hiking and visiting the mine, stay in Kennicott. Perhaps if you're passing through via plane for more back country adventures, McCarthy might be a better fit. Decide which, because the shuttle between the 2 towns is $5 per person each way.

Just completed three night package visit to the lodge including meals and flights to/from Anchorage. Very little we would change. Nice big comfortable room in the south wing; knowledgeable, attentive and friendly staff. Lodge has wonderful views of glacier and surrounding peaks. Efficient shuttle service to/from town and airport. Guide service located across the road from the lodge. Meals very... More

Wonderful place to stay in a home-like atmosphere at Kennicott Glacier Lodge. Great staff and great food. Take the tour of the mine and hike out to the glacier. What a fun trip. Slow going road to the lodge. Lots of ruts but well worth the time it takes to travel there. Shared bathrooms in one lodge building but never... More

We had a forest-view room, in the main lodge (shared shower and bathrooms, sink in our room). The room was fairly small and basic, but a reasonably good value for the area. We didn't feel we missed out not having a Glacier view room- we weren't in our room very much, and the Root Glacier in front of the hotel... More

First of all Kennicott is a must see in Alaska. Our visit to the Wrangell / St Elias was one of the big highlights of our two week trip. We have three kids (ages 9 - 11) and the accommodations worked out great. We stayed in the south (non main lodge) and had our own bathroom, but one of our... More

We loved it here. The lodge was cozy and clean with excellent service. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. We stayed on the first floor of the main building so it did get a bit loud at breakfast time, but that was our only complaint. Also, be prepared for food to be on the pricey side. It... More

We loved this place and hope to go back someday. We had a room in the main lodge; there were separate toilet rooms and shower rooms down the hall which were shared with other occupants. They sounded busy around 7 or 8 am, but we took our showers in the evening and stayed in bed until about 8:30 am. We... More

Great location, superbly managed. Everything clean and well run. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Great view onto the glacier. Prices are very reasonable considering the location. If you are on a budget we recommend that you bring your own food or use the pizza place opposite (great). Glacier view rooms are much more expensive, and certainly not worth the extra. Just... More

My wife and I spent two nights there recently on our visit to the Kennicott Mine area. The Glacier Lodge facility is excellent and the staff runs it well and efficiently We stayed in the Main Lodge and had a package deal that included 3 meals per day and a round trip flight from the Chitna airport and back.
