We stayed here for 3 nights, this is located in Canyon Village section of Yellowstone one of the sections that does not smell of geysers. This village is newer compared to other locations.
Check In - Depending on busy season and when you arrive this will take time, staff is friendly and helpful to all and people in general ask lot of questions. They also do bookings for other activities in the park so if you have someone checking on lot of stuff then you will be waiting for long.
Rooms: We had superior room, some rooms have balcony for few extra bucks. We were given room on 2nd floor in Moran lodge. Our room was standard room with 2 queen beds for our family of 4 (2 kids 15 and 11). Room is basic but clean, rooms do not have TV and microwave but has refrigerator. Does not have any chest or anything with drawers to store your cloths, you are only left with a single hanging open closet. Room does not have TV either but you are in Yellowstone, this did not bother us but some may need their TV/connection to world.
Parking/Transportation: Parking gets busy and if you arrive late you will have to drive around. They do provide free shuttle from lodge area to Canyon Village for dining. Shuttle runs till 10 PM every 15 minutes.
Price: I understand Xanterra is maintaining this and all other lodges in Yellowstone and most other national parks. For the prices they charge and remoteness of the region, I would like microwave and chest/storage. Some people may like to have iron and ironing board as well for evening walk around.
Location of this place is the key selling point, we started early and came back around noon to our room, relaxed for a bit and then went out again. You can only do that if you are staying inside the park. Some other lodge are available for less price but are old, Lake Hotel is more expensive than this but is good.
Internet Access: It is provided by park (NPS) and not Xanterra, it is bad and depending on time of the day it will be extremely slow. For us ATT wireless worked from our room including data. Only issue was it was slow but we were able to get texts and whasapp working from our room. Elsewhere in the park cell service will only work in the developed area. My recommendation is don't pay for the Wifi. This area needs huge improvement, Xanterra and NPS needs to do something and provide better options.

First quality lodgings in the middle of the wilderness. There are several choices of restaurants from general store to get a snack to table service. The fast food restaurant has a big area with fireplace to sit around is great for large families.
The lodge is close to a ranch where horseback riding is available.
We booked the Chuckwagon tour and it was a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: As a senior I asked for a fist floor room but there are elevators

We stayed in the Moran building at the Canyon Lodge arriving the day after the recent solar eclipse. Neither the Lodge, nor the park as a whole, were ready for the crowds and it showed with the disorganization evident. Not enough staff on hand and long waits in the dining room and at the lounge. Maps of the campus are necessary because the buildings are spread over a large area but were not provided in our room as promised. The door to our room was very difficult to push open because the automatic closer closer was set incorrectly. An elderly person or child would not be able to open it. As dining options are only available in one building (which dates back to the 50's) one has to walk or take the shuttle bus which operates about every 15 min. Even in good weather though the bus was crowded.

These hotel buildings are newly renovated and while the rooms were nice they unbelievably lack a TV. Their idea is one should enjoy nature. That's okay during the day but what about after dark, or if you want to check the weather channel in the morning? Rooms also lack air conditioning. It wasn't a factor during our stay but during a hot spell it could be.

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!
