The room was very good. The only drawback was that it didn't have air conditioning. We opened a window and turned on the ceiling fan but we were still a little warm. The room is large and comfortable. The lodge has some very nice viewing areas of the mountains. The staff is very nice and helpful.

I have never seen such amazing views as those I saw at this lodge. It's very clear the scenery is what you are paying for. Front desk service friendly but not helpful. Rooms clean. While we were there from Sun-Tues, the bar deck was being stained so no cocktails or food outdoors. There is a gorgeous fireplace just off the... More

This place is gorgeous! We were picked up at the railroad depot and taken to the lodge. Our bags were dropped off at the room. One of our bags didn't make it but Chris H. took care of the problem with gracious professionalism. Thank you Chris! Denali was fully visible both days that we were here. There's only a 30%... More

The lodge location is amazing; the rooms are average and clean. Some dining servers need practice. To be fair the kitchen played a part too, but as a server you should know how the dish you're serving should look. Yes it was early in the season and they were still training, but maybe the lodge should consider bringing them on... More

Nice place, clean rooms and great views, but be ready to be stuck at the lodge for big parts of the day unless you want to pay for taxi service. The shuttle only runs from 10am to 5:30pm, meaning you can't use it for the breakfast and dinner hours in Talkeetna, which is about 2.5 miles away. For us, it... More

We spent a night at the Talkeetna Lodge as part of a land tour coupled with a Celebrity Cruise. This hotel was beautiful. We had a fantastic view of Mt. Denali out of our bedroom window. We had a few drinks at the bar and the bartender Anna was great. Had the breakfast buffet which was great. Don't know if... More

The hotel was very nice. We had a room with a view you would die for. The in house food was expensive but it's Alaska. Had a halibut quesadilla for dinner & pancakes for breakfast.

Being on a tour meant that our bags were already in our room and we were handed out keys upon arrival. Not sure if it is the same for all buildings, but we were in an odd numbered room which overlooked the mountains, especially Denali which is North Americas highest. Very spacious room with two queen sized beds, a fridge,... More
