If you want a central location in Yellowstone, this is your best bet. The rooms are very nice, relatively new, clean, and reasonably appointed but that is about all you get. If you want to have a meal, that's another story. Breakfast is either a grab and go that offers you a pastry and a yogurt for $15 or if you want to sit down you can risk getting moldy berries on your disgusting chia pudding (as I did). Dinner was better but served college dining hall style (pick a starch, a meat and a veggie). I'd stay again but only based on the convenience of being central in the park.

The room was very nice, although all food options required going to another building (by car or shuttle bus). And it was pricey. But the location? Perfect to get to all parts of the park. Really great stay.

Be aware that connectivity (cell and wifi) is very limited in the Park except at Old Faithful. Even the pay-for wifi service at this Lodge is poor. Don't expect to upload your pictures until you leave!

Room tip: Make your reservation early!

We stayed in the Moran building . Newly renovated, the rooms were very clean . They do not allow any kind of cooking in rooms . No microwaves or anything. You have to eat at the restaurants or cafeterias unless you drive out of park . Small fridge , no tv so enjoy the outdoors .

It is worth the cost to be so close to many wonderful parts of the park. Canyon Village is close to: Grand Canyon of Yellowstone (also Artist's Point, Uncle Tom's Trail), a visitor education center, and the drive to Hayden Valley and Mt. Washburn to name a few. There is a restaurant, gas station, and gift store there too. Overall, Canyon Village is sort of centrally located in Yellowstone so it's convenient to travel any where. It is difficult to get reservations, but be persistent. I made calls several times before the trip and was told there was nothing available, before finally getting rooms which someone else had canceled. Initially we were put in different rooms each night on our first reservation, and the people traveling with us were given a room in a different building. By calling back several more times before our arrival, we eventually were able to get rooms together and we didn't have to move for the second night of our stay. Be aware that "Canyon Lodge" is actually quite a few buildings, adding up to over 500 rooms, and it was not well labeled when you make the turn into Canyon Village. Where you check in is the only place that has staff present consistently. They give you a key and you have to drive to the building where your room is, down bumpy gravel roads. If you have an issue, you don't just "run down to the front desk," you have to call the main building. We had a power outage the night we stayed there which lasted for several hours, which is how we found out. Also, because there is no visible staff when you enter the building, it made us question the security a bit. Groups of people were loud coming into the building at all hours, which was a problem for people on the ground floor trying to sleep and rise early for wildlife spotting. However, we were safe and comfortable throughout our stay. Several of the buildings are new constructions. We were in one of these, and the room was both clean and neatly decorated. It was on the small side, but there was a small table and two chairs plus a small fridge, as well as the two beds. There is no radio, tv, or air conditioning, but there was a small retro fan and the window could be opened to cool it down. We had a patio room which had chairs outside to relax, but we didn't enjoy them because we were too busy away from the room and because there were abundant mosquitoes. :) When we walked in, there was a stuffed animal bison on each bed. Be forewarned they are cute and they are NOT complimentary. We have two little girls and, yes, we came home with two bison. Well played to the marketing team! :) Finally, be sure to watch that you are charged the rate you were quoted per night. There are a lot of hidden fees and nothing is "spelled out" clearly on the bill, so it seems like "fuzzy math."

When is a lodge not a lodge? When you stay at the Canyon Lodge in Yellowstone which is a group of newly-constructed, luxury dormitory rooms housed in buildings that masquerade as if they were premium lodging. Don't be fooled. This is an overpriced summer camp for people who like to eat in strip malls where the fare is below Wendy's standards. Yes, there is no fine dining at the Canyons in Yellowstone, and hardly what you would call eatable, but at Ritz Carlton prices.

What a disappointment!! And the service is abominable.
