Set in wilderness of Alaska, about an hour from the pretty town of Talkeetna, this lodge is a beauty. On a clear sky day you can view Denali from various viewpoints of the lodge property. The lodge also offers bonfire in the evening on the outside decks. Try breakfast in their cafe overlooking the majestic mountains or enjoy the gift... More

We stayed at this lodge for only one night between going from Talkeetna to Anchorage. I only wish we could have stayed more than one night. The room was very well appointed, clean and had very comfortable beds. The lodge was spacious and the restaurants were good and so was the gift shop.. The BEST thing about this resort was... More

We stayed here coz all the other places are sold out. This is an hour and 45 minutes from Denali park road. The location is tough to find. There's no wifi, no AC (it's going to be hot during summer), no fridge to store food. Very basic. for the price they charge us, I don't think it is a good... More

The property is well-maintained and pleasant. The room was great with a good quality bed. The main reason to stay at this property is the hope Denali will reveal itself and you will get to bask in the glory of the highest mountain in North America. We were very fortunate to be one of the 30% that actually see the... More

After Anchorage, its the first leg of the land portion of the Princess land excursion; its gets a chance to be acclimated to Alaska time as well as the backcountry. Its a little shock for all the people moving in and out of the facility but its a good start for the plan; Rooms are basic and nothing fancy, but... More

This is my favorite Princess lodge. Location is superb, service is great, and views are wonderful. Rooms are good size but not "modern". Bathrooms are a nice size and very clean. Main lodge has great deck in back with 2 restaurants. Another restaurant also on property. Make sure you request building close to main lobby. No WiFi in rooms. Main... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge. It was part of our Princess Cruise land sea tour. The room was very clean and spacious. The grounds are well maintained. We used 2 of the restaurants and found both to be outstanding. Views of Mt Denali are an added extra. Big bonus was seeing a moose with... More

We were among the lucky 10 percent of visitors who got an unobscured view of Mount McKinley (Denali), thanks to great weather. Some of the cabins are at the top of steep walkways, but a shuttle is available for the less mobile. We enjoyed our stay and were impressed by the varied menu at the casual grill on the property,...

3rd day of tour and this was by far the best place to sit back and relax. It sits back in the wilderness. We even got to see Mt. Denali and the two other mountains. This is very rare. There is shuttle around the place since it holds several different buildings. There is a shuttle into town. The place was... More
