Great value at the Princess Lodge. Clean, spacious and quiet. Lovely staff and great food. Room was quite cheap and had two queens or a king. Bathroom was lovely. A short walk to a gorgeous outlook with mountain views. Two restaurants, shuffleboard and some gorgeous flowers!

This was one of the hotels on our Princess land tour in conjunction with a booked cruise. Although in a rather remote area (no other eating options close enought to walk to), it certainly did have beautiful scenery. The two restaraunts were reasonably priced for the area and food was very tasty. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice lounge chairs in lobby as well as outside on patio to view the mountains in the distance. A few walking trails on property. Main complaints: No coffee pot in room. Cup of coffee in the restaurant costs $2.00. A $5.00 charge for taking the bus shuttle to the Wrangle/St. Elias National Park Visitor station about 5 miles away. Seems like these should have been included for what we paid for our cruise tour from Princess. I did appreciate being able to use the Internet for free on two computers in public area. Some guests had to be reminded about limiting their internet time to 20 minutes if someone was waiting but most abided by the suggestion. No printer available with the computer access. This is not a real resort - there are no recreational facitities, but rather a fairly small hotel (I think around 85 rooms) that felt more like an Inn.

Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge was our first stop on a one week land tour after a one week cruise. We were sad to leave the ship but so pleased with this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. When booking our cruise and landtour through Princess, we requested a handicap room for one of our family members. When we arrived at Copper River, who was sold out, they did not have a handicap room for us. However, the General Manager asked someone to switch rooms with us so we had the needed handicap room. In addition, she called ahead to Denali and Fairbanks Princess Lodges to make sure we had a handicap room waiting for us. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Rooms were very nice and clean. The lodge is only five years old, but is used only four months out of the year; so it feels brand new. The lobby is gorgeous with a view of the mountains and a large fireplace. Yes, you are out in the middle of no where, but there are plenty of things to do, hike, go to the Park Service's Visitor Center or book an adventure or tour through the front desk. We rented Rhico's one day and had a blast. This was our favorite Princess Lodge. You can simply relax with a good book or take some extreme adventure tour.

This is one of the two best accommodations during our driving trip in Alaska (the other one is "Kenai Fjord Glacier Lodge, which opened brand-new on June 1st." You can say it stands out in the middle of nowhere - only magnificent views of mt. st Elias group and the trans-Alaska pipeline. It's a good stopover if you plan to drive b/t Valdez and Fairbanks.
We stayed in the standard room with the mountain view. It's not very spacious but quite normal for a hotel room size and it's clean and comfy for 2 people. We tried the "Two River restaurant" (the elegant dining one) and the food were very nice. With the fantastic relaxing environment and tasty food in front of us, we just wish we could have spend one more nights there.

This hotel was part of our land excursion with a Princess Alaska cruise - 2 nights. The place is small (only 80+ rooms) and is isolated on the west edge of Wrangell/St. Elias National Park. Nice views to Mt. Drum and Wrangell and the river valley. Quiet, well equipped rooms, decent restaurant, and a fire in the fireplace every night. Staff we friendly and ready to serve. If you are looking for a lot of activity, this is not the place for you. If you want to sit, read and take one of the day trips (we went flightseeing over the glaciers in clear weather), it is very relaxing.
