The cabin has minimal in it making it feel very clean & tidy. It was very comfortable & extremely clean. We used the wall heater at night and the fan during the day with the windows open.
Our cabin was SPOTLESS & had an amazing view with a short trail right outside our porch.
They walls are thin & our neighbors were traveling with A LOT of younger boys who were very spirited & high energy.
The bathroom in our cabin had a red heat lamp; nice touch.
We went hiking & saw lots of wildlife & saw the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. All of it was amazing & very clean!
It was snowing in June so our horseback ride was cancelled, but we understood.
This part of the park has a completely different feel to it. It is quiet, way more laid back, & very peaceful. Eat early because everything closes early due to COVID. The store in the area has everything you need. The gas station was handy, too.
We had an issue with getting gluten free & vegetarian food with all the delivery restrictions in the park because of COVID. Clare is the food manger at the restaurant. She has great customer service skills. John was the sous chef who made the gluten free & vegetarian options. The staff all seemed happy & each one went above & beyond to make sure we were happy, fed and well taken care of.

excellent stay 5* review for a 3* property
we stayed in a western cabin. Clean. Parking was a little tough with an RV parked out front but otherwise great. Centrally located. We took all of our food into the park due to limited access to food with cover. It worked perfectly essentially car camping food. Made for an easier star and more timely wind down and bedtime with not having to worry about getting take out or restaurant lines/food timing etc.

This is about what you would expect, staying within a national park. Very pricy for a room with no TV or WiFi or even a clock, also out of range for our cell service. But reasonably comfy and located very near a good number of outstanding sites.

July 2019 Yellowstone Vacation
We stayed at the Canyon Lodge (can’t remember which building - one of the newer ones) for 2 nights of our 5 night 6 day trip. The building was fairly new and the rooms were clean and up to date. There aren’t really any nice exciting views from the lodge, but there is a shopping/dining complex nearby. We stayed here for proximity to Lake Yellowstone and the Upper/Lower Yellowstone Falls.
There’s nothing to really critique or praise about this location. I believe it’s the nicest, newest lodging available within the park.
We had quite a wait during check in, and it sounded like some guests were having issues with room availability (they may have booked through a third party vendor).
Nearby dining options included the M66 Canyon Lodge Bar and Grill and the Canyon Lodge Eatery which are connected. The eatery is basically a cafeteria with several options of average tasting food. The bar and grill serves higher quality food and is obviously more expensive.

Warning!! Road to the north will be closed this summer
Yesterday we booked Canyon Lodge for this summer, but when I called to check on something I was told the road to the north of this hotel up to Tower Junction will be closed in August. So if you want to see Lamar Valley you will have to drive all the way around (back over to Mammoth) to get to the Canyon area. I am posting this as a warning so you can plan your trip accordingly---I didn't know and now I have to change our plans and the rooms are mostly sold out. I was not happy about the $426 that we were going to have to pay at Canyon lodge (for the cheapest available space for 4 people) but now I have to change our plans. If you are booking this hotel/cabin I would suggest you ask them to check the road closures around this hotel.
