After visiting the Grand Tetons we headed up to Yellowstone. I tried to get a reservation at the Old Faithful Lodge, sadly it was booked. I finally made a reservation at the Canyon Lodge. After a day of touring we arrived at the lodge to settle in for the night. Canyon Lodge is a series of several separate self contained buildings. They look very new and must be of very recent construction. The front desk is in one of the buildings when you first arrive into the complex. The front desk and lobby was not much to talk about, very basic with a small cafe bar. To get to our room we had to drive through the complex. The building looked very new. Our room was very nice and spacious. There are no restaurants or shops within the lodge. Front desk said we can drive or take a short walk to the village. We decided to walk to have dinner. It wasn’t that far and it took us about 10 or 15 minutes, but we do walk slow. The path to the village was not that pleasant. We had to walk across a dirt road used by park utility vehicles, then we had go through a dirt parking lot for the park employee residence. When we got near the village we had to walk up steep stairs to get to the level of the village. The dining choices were not that good, but we were hungry so it was fine. Visiting and touring Yellowstone was great and a must do for anyone wanting to see the wonders of nature. My first choice would have been to stay at the Old Faithful Lodge, a distant second is to stay at Canyon Lodge. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, but it needs more to be considered a lodge.

Overall a disappointing and frustrating stay

We stayed here for one night. There were no instructions as to where to go to check-in. The map I found online was created before the Canyon Lodge area was redesigned so the prior location apparently near the Post Office is not the current check-in area. We drove around in the darkness to no avail and finally asked in the Gift Shop where we were supposed to go. Registration is in Washburn Lodge which is one of 6 separate buildings. We checked in and were told which building we were in. They mentioned that there was a wounded animal around the lodge and that there were bears around so bear spray would be a good idea (we didn't have any). Finding a parking spot was the next challenge - there was nothing anywhere nearby and you can't pull up to your building to unload AT ALL. No offer of bell service was made at check-in. So we found one luggage roller in our building and proceeded to wheel it down and back from our car for about half a mile. Thankfully we didn't encounter the bears. There has just got to be a better way! The room was modern and the one saving grace was a fridge which we appreciated. Not worth the aggravation of staying there though. We also stayed at Lake Yellowstone Hotel and Old Faithful Inn which were much better options.

The Canyon Lodge is in a National Park so you should not expect a 5 star hotel. The facility is close to the grand canyon of Yellowstone and you can certainly walk to the falls. The rooms are clean and spacious. Be advised the rooms do not have TV's. You can get internet for a fee but it is not that fast. The hotel was fairly quiet the two nights we stayed there. The heater is a bit old fashioned in that the temperate control knob only have a higher/lower dial so you have some trial and error to get the temp correct. There was a coffee stand in the lobby of our building ( there are multiple buildings there) but the food is limited to pre packaged muffins and pound cake. If you want something more substantial you have to walk to the main eating area.

As others have said you are sort of at the mercy of the NP as to where to stay if you plan to stay on site. However, this was a nice lodge just be aware there is no air conditioning but they do provide fans. It does cool down in the evening but the room only cooled down after midnight the one night we were there and it did cool down sooner the other night.

Not Very Comfortable

In the park you are at the mercy of a few choices to sleep. One central building then multiple other buildings around the property. The rooms themselves were clean. The mattresses on the bed had to be the absolute worst. They were the most uncomfortable things I have tried to sleep on. There were two queen beds and both were equally bad. The shower stall is extremely short. I'm 6'-1" and was barely able to get in. Taller people will have to duck. You have an option for purchasing wi-fi. Unfortunately it only works in the main building or the cafeteria. Unless you are staying there, not really worth. Only stayed one night as we worked our way around the park loop. Glad that's all it was.
