The Lodge is well situated overlooking the gorgeous scenery around it. The staff and food quality is excellent. The room, leaves space for improvement. When sun is illuminating for 20 hours a day, you,d expect to be able to close curtains and achieve a modicum of darkness. Since there are not a lot of choices as well situated, it was worth it to make do for one night.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and share your experience. We are constantly taking guest feedback into consideration and looking for ways to improve.
As you mentioned we do experience very few hours in which the sun sets during the summer months. That being said we know how important a good night sleep is while on vacation and so all our rooms come standard with black out curtains. We are very sorry if this was still not enough darkness to get a full night sleep.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of Alaska and have a wonderful rest of your summer.

Beautiful hotel with scenic grounds. The fireplace in the lobby is very impressive. Great cocktails and the food is even better! The view from the back deck is breathtaking. We could see Mt Denali. Decided to take a walk through the beautiful grounds but needed about a gallon of deet.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are please to hear you had a good experience in our restaurant and were fortunate enough to visit us during a period of clear weather. Unfortunately, as you mentioned much of Alaska has to deal with mosquitos in the late spring and early summer. We are happy to hear that despite the minor annoyance you got out and were able to enjoy some of our amazing trails around property.

Have a great rest of your summer!

This property is on a hill and faces toward Denali. There is a great public space in the lobby with large windows and a big stone fire place. The grounds are well kept, the hotel is clean, and things are run efficiently with customer needs in mind. When we arrived at the train depot, a hotel representative greeted us and the shuttle whisked us of to the property. Since we arrived before 3 o'clock check in time, our room was not ready. At that point our luggage was brought to our room, and check in staff asked for a contact number. We were off enjoying the small town of Talkeetna, and they texted us to let us know our room was ready. For dinner I enjoyed an Asian salad in the casual restaurant at the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for the mountain view.

The Lodge is beautiful and the grounds and view are stunning. The stone fireplace and comfy chairs in the lobby make a perfect lounging area. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable and the staff took into consideration our request for a room that would require the least amount of walking. The shuttle service to downtown and the rail station is very convenient. The Foraker dining room offers delicious choices for breakfast and dinner and the chef is especially receptive to dietary restrictions. Our server, Sarah, was very attentive which was important because the kitchen was having a slow night. The little town of Talkeetna is a worthwhile detour on the way to or from Denali, and the Lodge is a perfect place to stay.

My 18 year old son and I stayed here for two nights and it was Fantastic. He later told me that it was his favorite place that we stayed while in Alaska and I have to agree. The mountain range views are Gorgeous and the lodge was Beautiful and well maintained. The Restaurants had incredible food and the service was fantastic. The staff was always courteous and helpful. We are already planning another trip to Alaska and will definitely be staying here again. BRAVO!!!!!!
