We stayed here one night in August as a part of our Princess Connoisseur Cruisetour. We had a lovely train ride to Talketna, and we just got off the train and saw the town for about an hour before taking the neext shuttle to the property. I'd recommend doing this as we saved the trip back and forth from Talkeetna....

My three sisters and I booked two rooms for a girl's weekend. We had a lovely time at the lodge! We hiked the nearby trails, relaxed in the lodge, enjoyed the dining options, and especially loved the fire pits and talking with other guests. As lifelong Alaskans, we loved hearing where the other guests were visiting from and answering their...

The view is spectacular. The buildings are very nice and the nature briefings by local State Park volunteers was wonderful! Especially when they brought a Bald Eagle in and discussed the recovery program. The resort is about 1 hour from Talkeetna so you are away from everything. BUT.... After leaving the ship and a 6 hour bus ride, it took...

Best thing about this lodge is the location. Excellent views of McKinley and they even call your room (like wake up call) if mountain shows itself through weather. /downside is restaurants close rather early considering many excursions go late in evening and offers no legit restaurant open after 10pm. Rooms were ok, though aged. Spread out over large area they...

This location offers the best view of Mt McKinley (Denali) than any other place that we visited. We were lucky that it was clear the day that we were there. You shouldn't come here for the food and beverage. You should come for the view. Then sit by the open fire pits and enjoy your beverage while enjoying one of...

Lodge sits in state park with great views of Mt. Denali if you're in the lucky 30% who visit when Denali can be seen. 2 of the 3 on-site restaurants offer views while dining. More of a "wilderness" feel than Denali Princess lodge because 1-story buildings are spread out across more buildings. Most buildings have outside access to rooms. Rooms...

we arrived by coach and were directed to our room which was in a block of apartments. The staff had organised that our luggage would be taken directly to our room, which was good. The hotel had several restaurants to choose from. The ones we tried were all good.

I definitley agree that this Princess Lodge is the nicest of all. It's smaller size gives it a coziness that you can't replicate at the Denali Lodge. The roaring fire and seating arrangements make you feel right at home. The casual restaurant was really good and the wait staff really friendly. The presentations there were also excellent. We saw a...

Best things first: the view from the patio of the main lobby is magnificent. You can see Mt Mc Kinley and the setting is just amazing. The rooms are a bit aged but everything that is needed. Overall rustic lodge feeling. Had dinner at the Grizzly Bar and food is quite decent, the prices are very reasonable which is nice...

Out of the 3 Lodges of Princess this was by far the best Lodge for layout and choices. There were 2 places to eat and drink. Nice gift shop. Plenty to do outside with views. Shuttle to move you around the facility. Across the street were many other stores and bars. Most workers were really enjoyable to talk to.
