Be aware that if you book at this lodge as an independant traveller that you may be bumped (evicted, kicked out, not allowed to check in) I am still waiting for an answer as to why, but I believe they will accept bookings from independant travellers and then as cruise tours fill up, they bump people like us.
They do send an email to tell you ours was dated 7 days prio but due to some issues with our email we did not know until we arrived at the reception desk. The person who dealt with us was very blunt, no room sorry, Mckinley Chalet down the road is booked for you.
Pricess did refund our money and pay for the McKinley Chalet, we chose Princess because the Chalet has so many poor reviews, which I can vouch for Block D downstairs,,,ohhhh the noise is terrible.
Fellow travellers, if planning an independant trip in Alaska avoid Glitter Gulch at all costs stay in a B&B at Healy and drive to the front entrance of the park, its about 10 miles (16 km) and worth every one. Catch the earliest shuttle bus you can best for wild life, you can also self drive the first 15 miles into the park, we saw moose and bear in that 15 miles!
