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.
Pros: Reasonable prices for the hotel and restaurant.
Cons: I understand they made a mistake but I thought they should have comped us the room for all the trouble they put us through.
Location: The hotel is isolated but they appear to have things to do there. Like everywhere we went, the clouds kept us from seeing Denali from the hotel.
