Beautiful Lodge. Perfect view. Good food at the restaurant and comfortable beds. They didn’t come in and clean each day because of covid they said. We ran out of towels and made multiple calls to the desk. We finally went down there and had to request towels. This happened more than once. They knew 3 adults checked in but only had supplies like cups and towels for two. We smoked cigars outside. In attempt to be courteous, instead of throwing our cigar butts in the ground we took them back to our hotel room and put them in the trash can. When we were sent our final bill, we were charged $250 for smoke damage! That as much as the room! And we never smoked in the room. Not once. The manager was difficult to get hold of and kept insisting that because there were butts in the trash can then we smoked in the hotel. And we did not. Will not refund the charge. So very frustrating. This trip was a retirement gift for my Dad and this hotel was supposed to be the cream of the crop and it has been a headache. I have submitted the review to the hotel per their email and they will not refund the money. Very frustrating. What is the point of traveling and trying to be courteous when you just get that kind of stuff in return??

Not worth the price if you do not have a view room

Pros: The grounds are beautiful. Perfect location if Denali (Mt. McKinley) is out.
Cons: Food. Btw, except for three entrees, the menu in the fancy Foraker restaurant was the same as the Bistro only higher priced! No vegan options.
Location: The town of Talkeetna is a five minute drive from the hotel. Quaint, fun, good food options.
I booked two rooms - even responded to an e-mail requesting my guests names - and we were given rooms in different buildings instead of together and one room had a view of the parking lot pavement. Literally! It was a "basement" room adjacent to the parking lot that slopes up so all my guests could see was pavement. This was the most expensive room we had on our 10-day vacation. Since it was the last day I wanted to do something special for our guests. This was a normal room with nothing special. Many 3-star hotels have better bedding and better amenities than here.
