Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On the advice of our AAA travel agent, we booked a Denali, AK land trip and inside passage cruise with Holland America. Each Westmark hotel was filthy. Holland America offered $50 vouchers on next cruise. When AAA contacted them, they offered a $500 voucher.

Nice Denali hotel, clean and large rooms, convenient to other resorts and restaurants within walking distance, helpful staff. Area transportation included, easy to get around town. Would stay there again.

The rooms were a decent size and clean but very basic. The grounds are beautiful with nearby resorts in walking distance. Shuttle service to Denali National Park and Princess Lodges is available for free. Outlets in the rooms were sparse.

The room was the best of the Holland America owned hotels we stayed at through our tour. Resort layout was very rustic, we enjoyed the walking paths and how the buildings were nestled among trees. The sheets on the beds had not been changed from the previous party. They were wrinkled and had hair all over them. My husband called housekeeping and they changed the bedding. Overall cleanliness was much better than previous hotels. Food in the Canyon steakhouse was great. Breakfast buffet was expensive and many of the items were gone and not replaced. A cute strip mall is across the street with other more reasonable venues for food.

We were on a cruise to Alaska and stayed at the resort for 2 nights. The rooms were spacious and the grounds for the resort were nice. There were a few shops, a coffee shop, great steakhouse and another restaurant on the property. There were fire pits that you could sit around. It was a great place to stay.

We stayed here 3 nights with our Holland land/cruise tour. The place is rustic, which was expected for Alaska. We had a room in the lower section next to the river, which was really nice. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. The construction of the place has a lot to be desired. Our bathroom door didn’t close. The sink was in the hallway. Between the sitting area and the bedroom. No safe or hooks to hang your coats. The front desk staff were nice. The restaurant and bartenders were rude and didn’t care. We had the breakfast only meal plan with them and the food was average for breakfast. Nothing to write home about. We ate at other restaurants in the area, which are all walkable. There are shuttles that roam around the property and take you to the restaurants at the princess wilderness lodge. There are outdoor fire pits. Don’t use the laundry, the machines and the change machines will rip you off. It is a nice place to stay. The places to stay around there are limited. We would stay there again.

The room was not ready and when it was, it was not cleaned properly. But the greatest disappointment was that the only restaurant in the chain left open (they say it's the end of the season!!!) kept running out of food - not funny since there was nowhere else in the hotel to get food!! HOWEVER the shuttle service was excellent and the staff tries!

Lots of pillows, clean and room by comparison to other places we stayed in Alaska. Several choices for activities and hiking. We did the Mount Healy trail in the early AM, no foot traffic, 2.7 miles up hill, (we are both 64, in good shape farmers living on a steep 1 mile drive way we walk every night) The hike was no problem for us. Unfortunately when we got to the over look the clouds had set in and visibility was about 20 feet, we hiked back down and then ran into several other hikers. Enjoyed our time there.

We were in the Ridgeview Chalet and it was spectacular. We arrived about 1230 in the afternoon but our room wasn’t ready. We grabbed a quick lunch as we were going into the park with a tour arranged by Holland America. We didn’t see as much wildlife as we had seen many years before when we visited. The weather was rainy and chilly, which is typical for September. When we finished the tour and went to our room to freshen up before dinner, we very happy with the accommodation….large room and bathroom, desk, bureau, overstuffed chairs…all very forest and animal oriented. I think I would like a two night stay instead of one night, but out itinerary didn’t allow the second night. There are cute little stores in the square, fire pits and a restaurant, which I will review on another page.

We liked the layout of this lodge but unfortunately our room was downstairs and near the stairwell, so we could hear all the foot traffic around us.all the time. There was a 'sitting room' but it was small and furniture was uncomfortable. Coffee was horrid so we purchased at the kiosk inside main lodge. Staff there was great. The biggest inconvenience is that there was NO Wifi access in our room, only in the main lodge. "Fitted" sheets would NOT stay on the lower mattress and the mattresses were very soft/saggy. The bathroom never got warm even though we cranked up the floor heater and left it on for our entire stay. NO room for our luggage in that tiny bedroom. Restaurant was great but pricey.
