The rooms at this Princess Lodge are far nicer than the ones in Denali. More modern and clean. Could use workout facility for rainy days when unable to hike. Not too many trails to hike but managed to do all available. We were the last group to go through the Lodge before they closed for season. They had already shut... More

This is a large beautiful property. We stayed here as part of a Princess Cruise tour. The property is really spread out. There is a shuttle van that will take you around that runs every 10 mins. They have a coin laundry available which was nice. There were 2 restaurants in the compound. I wish we would have more time... More

The lodge is located in the middle of nowhere. It was a place to stay overnight. Nothing more nor less. The carpets in the hallways and on the stairs were filthy. Parking is away from the lodges a real plus in my book. The room were warm and quiet. The beds were comfortable.

Some people complained about the walk to the lodge and dining rooms, but really it was a beautiful way to see the property. We were also lucky to see Denali and the weather was great. Yes, the rooms do need some refurbishing, but they were clean and perfectly fine for an overnight stay. We were on a Princess Cruise. We... More

Princess had built the Mt McKinley Wilderness Lodge in 1996 – 1997 and the two storey lodges (barracks) were built later – our lodge building 21 was one of the later ones and looks old. It has not been modernized at all – it certainly looks much older than less than 20 years old. Our room was rather darkly furnished... More

Trying to be fair here. We were there only over night, so we may not have gotten to appreciate the property. Beautiful lodge, three restaurants to choose from, however the staff seemed tired and uninterested and ready to quit for the winter. There are no rooms in the lodge but rather in several out buildings. So you either walk to... More

Suppose to be a "wilderness" lodge but we were disturbed by road noise. A very ugly facility, the rooms lacking any charm and all the activities are centred an hours drive away. We also had to have our bags ready to be collected at 9am and be out of our room by 11am but we didn't leave until 2pm. This... More

We stayed here one night on the way from Anchorage to Denali NP. Beautiful facility. Excellent view Mt Mckinely. Buildings are spread over. They have few trails which are kids friendly. Kids enjoyed catching pokemans too.

This was the third and final hotel on our Princess connoisseur tour, and we hated to leave! This is a sprawling campus, but there is a convenient shuttle (we only rode it once so we could see the full spread, including all the wonderful, lifelike animal statues scattered everywhere). We were in (I believe) building 23, which was close to... More

We expected a resort but it turned out it is a land-locked cruise. Neither the web site or the two booking agents I talked to gave me the ides it is where Princess Cruises put the people from their cruise ships, which is run exactly that way, with preference given to their customers. It is located an hour bus ride... More
