This was our first land/lodge stop on our Princess Cruse/Tour vacation. This lodge is great. The building/rooms are spread out over the property and the shuttle runs till 11pm. The shuttle's take you to the lodge and other locations on the property. You can also walk to the lodge if need be. Our room was really nice. Not fancy but... More

We stayed one night at this hotel as part of a precruise tour package with Princess. It is a lovely wilderness setting with the lodging buildings set into the forest. We were a little grumpy after our longer than expected couch ride from Anchorage (due to road construction) and weren't happy when we heard that our room was in the... More

Nice campus with beautiful views and scenery everywhere. Plenty of parking . convenient stop between Anchorage and Fairbanks. Nice rooms and amenities. Plenty of food options but pricey. Near Talkeetna and Denali area. Wilderness lodge pretty well covers it!

Rooms are nice. Hidden in the woods. The hot tub had a rim of black around the edge of one of the hot tubs and the second hot tub was closed. The gift shop was large. It was a good stop traveling from Anchorage to Denali. They are doing extensive construction on the road from Trapper Creek to Denali causing... More

Room was basic, clean, comfortable but very warm/hot. Property had fire pits which were fun, & overlooked wonderful scenery. Restaurant was good for dinner, although same menu at the... More

If you visit the Denali Princess Lodge first, you'll think there's a small shopping area at McKinley lodge too. Surprise, there isn't. You may however take a bus to Takeetna, which is an hour away. We didn't visit Takeetna since I was the only one who wanted to go, so I can't review the town. The restaurants at this lodge... More

Mt McKinley Princess Wilderness Resort was a 2.5hr drive from our previous stop at Denali. The approach to the resort is up a hill from the main highway. The entrance to the place is through a large ranch style entrance, before opening up to a large sprawling estate of over 20 buildings. There appears to be no rooms in the... More

If you're reading this you're probably booked on a Princess land package in connection with your cruise. Good points: Hotel is situated in a beautiful area near Talneekna with (weather permitting) great view of Danali; the main restaurant has incredible food and service, beautiful grounds to take short hikes on, fire pits to enjoy s'mores on a cool night, etc....

The address fooled us and thought this was in Talkeetna. We went there twice in two days. I couldn't figure out why anyone would build this lodge so far from the park entrance. Well on the second day there in both the morning and the evening, we could see Denali. I took over 100 pictures. The staff was very friendly,... More

We stayed for two nights and a bit disappointed coming from Denali Princess Lodge as McKinley has less of a shoppers paradise as i enjoy. The setting made up for it as thus was the backdrop for Mt McKinley as you could only dream about seeing. The views from the lodge literally took your breath away. Our excursions were wonderful......
