Like all the Princess lodges in Alaska, this hotel has basic, but comfortable and clean rooms -- all nearly identical. This is a less visited lodge and you get a warm welcome when you are there. There are no facilities other than the lodge itself, but it is very near Wrangle-St. Elias National Park -- the largest in the park...

I went on the Princess's signature two week cruise to Alaska. The second half of the cruise it was on land and the River Princess Wilderness Lodge was one of our first stops. The scenery that surrounded the lodge was breathtaking. They also had many outdoor activities for families, such as wildness hikes and scavenger hunts. The restaurants at the...

We spent 10 days in Alaska and this was by far the nicest place we stayed in. It has very nice views. The rooms are big and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a nice restaurant on site. I wish we had stayed here longer.

This was the first of three lodges where we stayed on our "Off the beaten track" tour after our Princess cruise. I was antsy to get off the bus after a 9 hour bumpy slow ride from Valdez when the manager got on and briefed us about his hotel. It seems that the hotel was celebrating Christmas (remember the hotel...

Stayed 2 nights in September 2016. Room was clean, beds comfortable and view of mountains is beautiful with panoramic views from lobby and 2nd floor on front side. Back side overlooks parking lot. Temperature was in the 60's outside and our room was quite warm upon check in , but cooled off in a few hours with window open .Hotel...

We had read all the reviews prior to staying here and knew that we just had to attend the nightly flag ceremony honoring the Veterans - it did not disappoint. The music wasn't working this particular evening but the Mgr who so eloquently conducts the ceremony made it every bit as poignant. There was a WWII Veteran there who received...

A warm, clean, friendly part of Alaska to stay. Part of our off the beaten track tour. Great food and service by all the staff. Thankfully we were there to see the Last Flag Lowering of the season. excellent job done by Mr. David W. Merrill.

We stayed two nights at this hotel as part of our 14-day CruiseTour. Hotel was beautiful and restaurants had good service, food & drink. We were very disappointed in our accommodations. We booked Penthouse Suite accommodations for this CruiseTour and were assured (by travel agent via email & by Princess rep by phone) our land tour accommodations would be suites...

We arrived at Copper River Lodge by bus, from our cruise ship (Whittier to Valdez). Received a warm welcome, and packet with our room information. The staff is attentive, lodge nicely appointed. Food is very good, with large portions. (After the first dinner, we split our meals.) Prices are moderate: expect to pay $12 for lunch and $18 + for...

This was by far the best of the three Princess Wilderness lodges we stayed in during our Alaska tour. Independent travelers who are interested in this place should make reservations far in advance as availability is limited. The lodge has a wonderful gathering room with a comfortable balcony area overlooking it. The wifi is only available in those common rooms,...
