Way Overpriced...
$477 a night for a room with no WiFi? Let’s be clear, we expected scaled back services during our September stay due to Covid-19, but instead of dropping the room rates commensurate with no housekeeping, no coffee maker, no microwave, etc, etc. The hotel operator, Xanterra, saw an opportunity to exploit the pandemic and cash in. I wish I had researched who owned/operated all the Yellowstone hotels. Now that I know a billionaire profiteer from the oil & gas industry is behind it, I see the guest exploitation more clearly. (Philip Anschutz's Anschutz Corporation owns Xanterra. He is the same billionaire owner of Anschutz Exploration Corp., which did oil and gas exploration on 400,000 acres of the Blackfeet Reservation, along Glacier National Park's eastern boundary). I feel sorry for the hardworking employees at the Canyon Lodge —they deserve five stars for having to be on the front line. I’m guessing they didn’t get bonus pay. Just the fat cat owner.

Best Lodging in Yellowstone
Nice, new, spacious, clean, and really great except for lack of internet. It's hard to sleep in the high altitude, of course, but the bed's comfort is mitigated by the noisy, standard national park-issue sheets which contributed to a restless night. I think the Canyon Lodges are the best place to stay in Yellowstone. The staff was fantastic and friendly everywhere. I had an important business file to upload and could not do it on the wifi in the registration lobby and there was just one bar of cellular coverage so I got burned by that- understandable in the middle of a volcano, but in this day and age, internet is a necessity. Would highly recommend Canyon Lodge otherwise. It's also the best central location to see all the sights in the Park.

Wildlife experience in the wrong area of the park
We stayed at Canyon Lodge for 4 nights. To preface, the first 3 nights were good and met our expectations for what we were paying. Unfortunately the last night was a nightmare. Shortly after going to sleep, my partner and I heard a rustling sound near the trash bin. We turned on the lights and saw a small mouse run from the trash bin and hide behind the mini fridge stand. The mouse then poked its head out and hid. After calling the front desk an employee came to our room and told us not to worry that it wouldn't bite. The employee proceeded to ask for my help to use a swifter mop to guide the mouse to a paper bag. We were then moved to the room next door, but about 4 hours later we heard a scratching noise against the carpet and spotted a mouse run near the bathroom and hid near the sink. The front desk employee reassured us again that the mouse wasn't harmful. Harmful or not, we weren't booking a room at the lodge to share with a mouse. We were then moved to a different lodge and room for a short nap before our 8 hour drive back to our home. When checking out, the employee at the front desk stated that this may be common due to the colder weather. Although the employees attempted to be reassuring, it was extremely unprofessional to significantly downplay our concerns and have us help catch the mouse. Overall we're disappointed in how management handled this situation. If you decided to stay in the lodge, I advise you to stay in a room not located on the ground floor.

On our road trip through the western national parks we ran into a variety of ways covid was handled. This property went to extremes. Upon booking I knew wifi was only in the lodge lobby or a nearby food strip mall. It did not show that their is actually 5 separate lodges on the property. Ours was 3 buildings away. Then we find out all furniture (tables/chairs) are removed from the lobby and the wifi was crappy. Tho it was a vacation my husband HAD to check daily with our business. It was extremely difficult. Also a family member's room had a broken window that had to be fixed and their refrigerator never worked properly and they had to toss food and they didn't have a phone in the room that had to be bought to them. Our room also had a non working refer but they got to work. "Because of covid" their was no in room coffee as promised and the "desk" was a flimsy round table. Overall we really enjoyed the park but not our stay at Canyon Lodge and we're not that hard to please.

very disappointing !!!
my stay at this hotel was very disappointing. Out of the three hotels I stayed at during my week long travels, this was the most expensive, yet least comfortable and accommodating. The front desk staff that greeted me seemed bored and if I was putting him out to check me in. I was not offered any additional information about the area or the hotel, or any amenities. Rather I had to ask several questions to get any information about those things. The hotel room it’s self was lifeless, no wifi, no TV, no coffee maker, just a very sad little refrigerator. The beds were hard and uncomfortable. as far as meal options in the area, there were very little, and stores closed early leaving you with a very small array of options, none being very healthy. I would not recommend this hotel unless there were no other options. I was very disappointed, I expected much more being that the advertisement made it looks so luxurious. Only positive part of my stay, was checking out.

Expensive but worth it!!
Beautiful property and rooms right down to wooden shutters! It’s a certified LEED environmental conscious property. So in your room there are trash receptacles for plastic/compost/landfill. Comfortable queen beds/ no tv but you’re exhausted when you get back to your room anyway! Very high end property worth every penny. Location near Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. So happy that it is away from the big crowds

Canyon Lodges
The hotel is lacking in amenities esp during the COVID 19 pandemic. No coffee maker or microwave , no TV, no internet service in the room. If you need to eat or need coffee, you have to drive to the eatery. There's no way to reheat food.
