Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Talkeetna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2013

To start with the front desk people are great. They checked on reservations that we had for excursions and helped us figure out transportation and pickups from those events. The staff also took care of getting baggage to and from the rooms from the train (which is awesome!). They deliver the bags to your room, and you just leave them outside in the morning and they pick them up and get them to the train for you. The room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. One window opens for fresh air. Unusual on a ground floor, but understandable in Alaska where none of the hotels seem to have AC. The back deck view is quite lovely, and there is a nice walking trail system around the property. We had a quick, although good stay. I would recommend.

Room Tip: Obviously rooms in the main lodge on the back side have the best views - but you'll pay for thos...

This is a wonderful place to stay. The king room was spacious and beautiful. The lobby has a beautiful fireplace with couches and chairs to sit and relax with views of Mt. McKinley. There is also a great deck overlooking the mountain.

The food in the restaurant was very good but pricey. The staff was excellent. There is also a free shuttle into town.

This is a wonderful place. The Lodge is very nicely placed away from noise and traffic and still within walking distance to Talkeetna. They also provide free shuttle to town and Train Depot. The Lodge is spacious, and lovely decorated, big wood fireplace in the lobby, the room was clean and the view of Mt. McKinley was unbeatable. The front desk staff was so helpful and pleasant. If back in Talkeetna this is the place I'm going for sure.

We only had one night but the room was spacious, quiet and so clean. This was the middle of our week trip we planned through Alaska Tour & Travel. The window was able to open to get that cool clean air in the room. Loved the stay. Great food and great Alaskan brew.

Room Tip: Luxury Hotel with Luxury room.

We stayed one night in July. The view of Denali from the back patio was incredible! We came to Talkeetna by train for a glacier landing. At first, we wanted to stay closer to the train station for convenience. I am glad it didn't work out because we had a great time at the Lodge. The lobby has a beautiful fireplace and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The free shuttle service was very convenient and the bus driver was very friendly. He gave us a few pointers about the area. In fact, the entire staff there was great. We ate at the restaurant a few times. Nothing fancy was always good. We liked the room as well, nice and clean. We did not have a mountain view but you are surrounded by woods, so it was very peaceful. This hotel is affiliated with the Windsong Lodge in Seward. Unfortunately we did not have such a good experience there (the hotel is okay but the service was very poor, especially at the restaurant). The Talkeetna Lodge on the other hand is well managed, with a great staff. We would definitely recommend the Talkeetna Lodge to our family and friends!

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are great but expensive. You are surrounded by woods so our "garden" v...

Although it is roughly 100 miles south of Mt. McKinley, the view is just incredible. Room was nice, restaurant served good food at reasonable prices. But the location and view make this a great vacation stop.

Room Tip: Rooms facing north have a tremendous view of Mt. McKinley.

We love log cabin style lodges and this was a great one! Very cozy, attentive and helpful staff. We arrived and were tickled to find out we were "Guests of the Day" Received a room upgrade and welcome basket as a result! Beautiful place!
