Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge by Pursuit is set on a ridge above the small community of Talkeetna on the south side of Denali. Our lodge offers unforgettable views of Denali and the Alaska Range, yet we are just minutes from adventures of a lifetime. Enjoy the view as you relax next to our 46-foot river rock fireplace or shop for Native art from villages across Alaska. Enjoy casual or fine dining featuring Alaska specialties and the best wine selection in the neighborhood.

Guests commend the cleanliness across the lodge, from the spotless rooms to the well-kept grounds. The lodge's location is often lauded for its proximity to attractions and breathtaking views. However, opinions on service and value are mixed, with some guests citing overpriced amenities and varying levels of staff responsiveness.

Hotel's Favorite
The Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge opened for the first time in the offseason and we jumped at the chance for comfy accommodations while sharing our home with visiting family. The area is a little light on things to do in the evening in early March, but the lodge staff provided evening programming that brought all the guests together for a good time. We loved hearing others' experiences while we enjoyed the rockers overlooking the Alaska Range, razzing one another while playing bingo, and offering pointers for taking great photos of the aurora. My husband and I will back for weekend snowshoeing adventures and we'll definitely recommend the lodge to others looking for a convenient and comfortable spot while in Talkeenta.

We were transferred from the Mt McKinley princess lodge and they did us a favor! We were annoyed at first but when arriving the lodge was beautiful. Staff was incredible and the restaurant had amazing food!

The Lodge was a comfortable place for our group meeting. There are also several casual settings areas with amazing views for down time. The grounds offer hiking trails and the small town of Talkeetna is just a short drive.

The lodge was beautiful and we were actually able to see Denali for a short period. Gorgeous! While we realize we are there at the tail end of the season, the desk staff was neither helpful not friendly. Our room was large and comfortable, the grounds were beautiful and everything was very clean.

It’s okay. A very nice property for such a remote area and probably the best lodging option anywhere near Talkeetna. But the restaurants were a bit underwhelming and the room could’ve been updated a bit. The thermostat didn’t work and there was just a small fan to serve as the a/c. Lighting and decor was lacking. Food menu was very “gamey” and didn’t have many options for people with dietary restrictions. I get that it’s rural Alaska, but as a premier lodging resort I was expecting the food to be at least good, if not excellent. We ordered a salmon salad and a burger — both went uneaten and we opted to eat the cereal we brought instead. Only stayed 2 out of the 3 night that were booked even though there was no refund.

The Lodge was wonderful. We had great views of Mt. Denali. Ate at the Base Camp Bistro for dinner and breakfast. The food was very good and the service was also very good. The fireplace is amazing and their big bear is gigantic.

The Asst Manager was top notch. Our room was booked through Alaska Tours. Somehow we were assigned a lowest level, parking lot facing room next to the Guest Laundry and Vending machines. When we asked for a different room when checking in,Wyatt the Asst Manager spent a great amount of time working on our request. He was wonderful, as was the room he arranged for us.

Great place to stay in a out of the way location. Room was large and clean. Great views when not raining. The dining room was very good. The shuttle is timely and essential to getting around. We would stay here again.
