Lovely hill top lodge hours away from Denali
My first impression of the lodge was not a very flattering one. The rooms had minimal facilities and lacked wifi. But this place's true beauty lies outside of it's rooms. Situated in a very beautiful location, the lodge has lovely surroundings and very homely atmosphere provided by it's common guest area. The guest area is where all activity happens. There's a nice bar, restaurant, fireplace with comfy chairs around it, board games, puzzles. The place has a warm, comfortable aura where you can easily spend your entire day while overlooking gorgeous views. Will definitely be going back here if I ever visit Denali again.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service
The hotel packed up our stuff a day early.
Hotels near Denali were hard to find. We booked this thinking it would be a nice hotel at a reasonable cost. It is a couple hours from Denali National Park. It is a huge place with 20+ buildings. They have a lot of stuff going on at the hotel but were really just used it as a base camp for day trips to Denali. The restaurants were ok and not as expensive as I thought they might be. My only real complaint is they checked us out a day early. We had just ordered dinner and drinks at the Lynx Pizza place in Healy following the 8 hour shuttle trip out to Eielson and back. I turned my phone on and received a voicemail from the hotel asking me to make arrangements to pick up our luggage. It was 10pm and I had no idea what they were talking about. I called the hotel. The person was very nice but explained that our reservation had ended earlier that day. and they "packed up" our things. We got back to the hotel around 1am and found all of our stuff thrown into our suit cases. We were able to confirm we had our passports, wallets, jewelry, medicine but we continued to have to search for things through the next morning. We still haven't found a few inexpensive things. It was VERY FRUSTRATING!!! The next morning, they determined someone in the Princess home office made a mistake and offered us a breakfast voucher. The voucher was no where close to the trouble they put us through.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Room comfort
Not too bad
Not really in Trapper Creek proper. 30 miles or so north of where I thought it would be. Overall, a decent place to stay but the beds need to be thrown away and replaced with all new mattresses.

Wonderful trip
We lived in Alaska for 30+years and have always enjoyed staying at the lodge. It a wonderful place to explore and go to Byers lake for a hike. Good food and fun.
