At the beginning of October, not all lodges in the park are open anymore; we chose the Canyon Lodge because it is in the middle of the park and we really wanted to see a lot. Actually, we had "only" booked a log cabin; when we arrived, we were told that we have a free upgrade to a superior room in the lodge. They couldn't rent the cabins anymore because of the early cold snap. She told us something about old water pipes bursting. We were very pleased! The room was really nice, even the bathroom. And we had a door, unlike other reviewers said here. All of the Buildings have been renovated for two years, with great attention to sustainability and you can tell. There were even three different trashcans to separate the garbage: we have never had that in the US before! The restaurant belonging to the Canyon Village was absolutely fine. We had breakfast there almost every morning and ate there every night and at least there was so much choice that you did not have to eat the same food four times. It's like a canteen; You grab a tray, tell the people behind the counter what you want and pay for it in the next line. But it is really nice, very colorful and cozy. Yes, accommodation right in the park is expensive and breakfast is not included. But if you want to avoid the huge distances and see more of the park, you are definitely well advised to choose Canyon Lodge. Collapse
More motel than lodge, but choices are limited in the park itself

Well, you pay a premium to stay in the park itself, but for the price, it was more motel than hotel. For the price, I also expected wifi to be included, but it was not. I get it that people go to the national park to get away from civilization, but I was hoping to use the internet to plan my limited time in the park, to figure out where to go to make the best use of time. You really get the feeling that they go off of volume of visitors here. But overall, a good choice if you want to make the most of your time in the park and have easy access! Collapse
Pricey but expected!

My friends and I recently stayed at the Canyon Lodge for three days in August 2017. This hotel is located inside Yellowstone National Park and there are seven lodges on the property. We were housed in the Moran Lodge, which is the farthest from the registration office. This hotel is very pricey, but this is to be expected as you are located inside the park itself. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and the location was hard to beat. Pros: 1) Very clean, spacious and beautiful 2) Very close to their gift shops the Canyon Lodge Eatery, where there are restaurant options. 3) Hotel soap, shampoo, conditioner and body wash (good quality) are all provided in a dispenser pump in the shower. 4) Handy water station in the lobby. Cons: 1) Wi-fi is very weak and internet access here is minimal unless you pay for it. 2) The laundromat is located in the main registration office in Washburn Lodge. This makes it very inconvenient to do a load of laundry. We had to drive there and wait in their lobby instead. 3) Their bathroom is very nice, but the tub is quite deep. It took a concerted effort on all of our parts when stepping in and out of the tub. I think having the tub that deep is dangerous, because if you're tired from a long day of hiking it's easy to miss stepping out completely, which would result in a nasty fall. Despite the cons, we enjoyed our stay here. It was quite busy in August, but it was nice to come back to a nice hotel after a long day at the park. Collapse

Our room was quite spacious and the lodge is entirely beautiful and fancy, with marble and rustic decor. I would have preferred something more casual, with easier outdoor access such as a balcony, at least. The problem is that one needs to book more than one year in advance to really have a choice in the matter. The later you start making reservations, the more expensive and exclusive you get. Otherwise it is all very clean and very nice. Wireless in the park is hardly existent, no matter if you pay for it or not. My suggestion is to wait until getting out... Collapse

We visited the park for 4 nights the last week of June 2017. I think we were the first guests to stay in our actual room: a Standard room in the Moran Lodge (part of Canyon Lodge). The room and bathroom were small. The shower was tiny. But you do not come to Yellowstone to stay in your room! The room was equipped with everything we needed. As others have mentioned you definitely are paying a premium for staying in the park - but I thought it was priced fairly. The lodge has recycling bins (including compost) in the room and on the first floor. I choose Canyon Lodge because it is centrally located in the park and a new construction. I think if I could do it over again I would stay in the same lodge and room (it was big enough for my husband and I) but, I would do one night at Old Faithful - just because it would have been nice to not have to drive about an hour (give or take the amount of bison the road) each way for dinner. As I mentioned, the construction had just been completed when we arrived so there was not really any wifi nearby (but again, we didn't travel all this way to be on the internet). It was close and within walking distance to Canyon Village (cafeteria, coffee, gift shop, grocery store). There is also a gas station in Canyon Village (you have to pass by it and and the grocery store to get to the lodges so very accessible) last note - I was a bit worried about the lack of A/C (being from Houston, TX) during the summer but we were NOT hot once in our room...the temperatures dropped every night and it was more than comfortable. I think we opened the windows every night (they have screens) for air circulation. the temperature in the room was never a problem. Collapse
