All of the accommodations at the Canyon Lodge & Cabins offer a charming and rustic style of living. Although they are simple in design, each cabin offers a private bathroom, comfortable bedding and internet access (chargeable). In-room gift baskets are also available.
There are plenty of dining options nearby to tempt you after a busy day exploring the local area. The main lodge building includes a reception desk, a gift store, a picnic/deli shop, a full service restaurant and a cafeteria. Horseback rides are also available from the nearby corrals, making for a fun and unique experience.

What a disappointment - Yellowstone National Park is such a glorious American landmark, and this hotel is such a dismal attempt to provide a housing product. Uninspiring design gives the public areas a cramped feeling, and a solitary elevator existed for the sixty or so rooms on the second and third floors. To get to the third floor without the elevator, one had to use one of the two stairwells at the extreme ends of the building - genius! The room we had was also cramped, has a single, small window that permits little light into the room, has a tiny bed for two people, and not one closet for suitcases, backpacks, or clothes. The shower stall itself was the smallest shower I've ever seen (and I've stayed at a couple of dozen of bed and breakfasts in Ireland over the years, so I know what I'm talking about), to the point that cleaning ones feet and legs becomes an adventure itself - the slippery floor in the shower adds to the rollicking good adventure, which will probably be appreciated all the more by those visitors fortunate enough to endure a several hour ambulance ride to the closet hospital to have surgery to repair their hip fracture. I did start to admire the consistency of design when I puzzled over why the sliding door to the toilet/shower area is clunky/heavy - it occurred to me that the designer was trying to evoke the Wild Western jail cell motif - if so, then they got that ambiance just right, I'd say. Though very newly constructed, it appeared there was little attention to getting the basic construction right: there were a couple of large "bubbles" in the linoleum on the floor. No vent means that any steam from the shower has no place to go but your tiny room - maybe the room doubles as a sauna? The small window provides a spectacular view of the parking lot - obviously those who came up with the idea of where to locate the buildings put a lot of thought into how to foster the affection of the visitors for the park at the end of the day, or how to entice them from their rooms in the morning to explore the wonders outside. There is no convenient, well-lit path to stroll the couple of hundred yards from the hotel buildings to the area where the hotel front desk, restaurants, post office, and store are located - maybe they're planning to put a monorail there instead…? Overall this was a dismal experience, which did zero justice to the natural beauty of the surroundings. Whoever came up with this "product" has little appreciation for nature. We have stayed at some truly wonderful hotels in America's National Parks over the years. If you are fond of tight, cramped, sloppily designed and built quarters, then you will adore this place. Unfortunately Trip Advisor does not permit a reviewer to give any place a score of less than one. Look for my (forthcoming) review of the restaurant experience if the hotel review does not put you off. Collapse

we stayed two nights in the Canyon Lodge. the hotel itself is really nice, it's a beautiful mix betwenn rustic wood style and modern elements. We liked it very much. It was clean and comfortable. The only missing thing would be a kettle for tea. The Lodge is really very nice - all in all. Now comes the shabby part. The Lodge itself hasn't a restaurant (inhouse), you need to go to the Canyon Lodge centre to the restaurant. There's a pathway you could walk, but in the dark with bears around this is not really what we were into. The restaurant (not the grill/diner) was then really the lowlight. Waiting a long time to be seated, bad service (long time until we finally ordered), waiting again a long time until we got our food and then discovering that it was not what we ordered because the lady in the service didn't speak very good English and as well getting the food cold was then really really annoying and unsatisfying. And the prices are quite high!! Next morning the same with breakfast! We had a really bad experience with that restaurant. next evening we went to the Fountain & Grill (diner in the general store) which was really way better though you only get fast food. So, if you go to the Canyon Lodge: The Lodge itself is good, the restaurant (dining) is a desaster, go to the Fountan & Grill diner! This would be our recommendation... Collapse

We found it difficult to find accommodation in or near Yellowstone Park but found a cabin at Canyon Lodge for one night so we booked it. It was relatively expensive but reasonable for Yellowstone Park and area. Staying in the park avoided an 80 – 100 mile round trip to a nearby community and hotels in those communities were of similar price. The receptionist at check in was “curt”, but efficient and told us what we needed to know or what we asked. The map of the cabins he provided gave us a sense of where the cabin was located and we eventually found it, the problem being it was dark when we checked in, and it was impossible to read the cabin numbers from the car. We were surprised on the size of the cabin and it resembled a standard hotel room. It was clean and ideal for a one night stay. There was also an excellent heater in the cabin There was no TV or telephone in the room and a paid internet was only available in the main lobby of the lodge. Yellowstone is a beautiful park to visit and most of our day was spent in exploring the beautiful scenery and wonderful sights, and our cabin was ideal accommodation. Collapse

We were on our motorcycle trip and was looking forward to staying in Yellowstone. I had made reservations for the three of us, eight months before the trip, and I'm glad I did. You have to go to the village to check-in. The lady at the desk said they were full and had people waiting for a room, if there was a no show. Make sure you have your paperwork and take your time, and make sure that things are right. We were in the new lodge and it was nice. There was no TV, or radio. The room was very clean and big and comfortable.When you leave you must go back to check-in to leave your keys and check-out. WE paid more to stay here, but it was worth the big bucks, to stay here and enjoy the national park. Collapse

A nice location. The new lodge needs some refinements. Do not get a room near or next to the entry, the noise is unrelenting as suitcases roll over the "walkway strips' on a continuous basis, very annoying
