Me and my wife stayed in room#2 of Main lodge for 2 nights in July 2013 and found the experience to be less than average.
There were more negatives than the positives for us here...
Rooms: Very small in size....two small size beds ....and just a cold water sink... for approx $200...seriously?? The shared bathroom right across the room had hot water sink... so we felt it to be a cheap act of not providing hot water in the room sink.
Overpriced breakfast, lunch and dinner: Breakfast $15, Lunch $18 and Family style dinners for over $30 per person....being vegetarians price was a deal breaker for us...
We ate pizza right across the lodge at a bus aka pizza joint....$20 great deal!
Only positive is location as it was closer to our glacier hiking activity at St. Elias Alpine Guide office. Also parking of $5 at the footbridge was waived off.
But all in all, a highly overpriced experience and we would blame our travel agent - Alaska Vacation Store to set us up here...
