Probably the worst service I ever received. 3 guys behind the bar and couldn't find the beer I ordered for 10 minutes. While waiting the couldn't make a sugared rim drink for patron they knew. I only went to try the "Colorado Trout" which they ship in Boston. They proudly told me the lake outside their windows gets stocked with trout ever 2 weeks. This place is a Fraud with a capital F.

Spent 1 night in Dunraven Lodge which is a part of the Canyon Lodge and Cabins system. Check-in was in a different lodge and pretty quick. All of the lodges are a short distance from one another. We had a premium lodge room with 2 queen size beds for 4 adults. The room was on the 1st floor which was actually a floor down when entering the building and could be accessed by either stairs or an elevator. The room was clean and the bathroom had plenty of towels and soap/shampoo. There was a mini fridge and coffeemaker in the room. There is no AC or TV in any of the rooms in Yellowstone. WiFi is iffy - more likely to not have a signal - but there is a stronger signal in the registration lodge. Dunraven Lodge also has a large gathering room and a large balcony that faces a wooded area. It is about a 5-10 minute walk (depending on the lodge you are in) or 2 minute drive to the Canyon Village eatery, post office, gift shop/store, and visitor center, which has a small museum in it. A gas station is across the road from the village. We drove into Yellowstone from the south entrance (from Jackson Hole and the Tetons) and drove around the South Grand Loop Road towards Old Faithful. There was plenty to see before we looped around to Canyon Lodge (Dunraven Lodge) for the night. The food at Canyon Eatery - Fresh Woks - was very good. The next morning we drove the lower rim loop along the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone which happens to be near Canyon Lodge - you actually wind up back at the lodges. We continued to drive the North Grand Loop Road around to Mammoth Hot Springs before backtracking and leaving the park through Lamar Valley (where we heard there were animals hanging out) to the Northeast gate. If one were staying several days, Canyon Lodge (Dunraven Lodge) is centrally located in the park and a nice location to travel from. Prices are pretty high for the rooms but it would be convenient if visiting for more than a day.

We were renting a house across the road and the restaurant came highly recommended by the owners. Very busy place, make a reservation. Good variety of dishes to satisfy everyone. I had the baked rigatoni, it was delicious.

This is a fantastic central location in Yellowstone Park- wonderfully convenient to allow dawn and twilight visits to the Hayden Valley for wildlife viewing. The room itself is ok, nice and clean, but it was a bit warm during our August visit as the hotel does not have air conditioning (or TV). I was glad that we had a downstairs location, as I bet the top floors would be even warmer. WiFi is available for a fee, and there really is no hope of a signal without paying in this area of the park. We didn't bother, we were there to disconnect, but even posting a photo or making a quick phone call to share with friends was impossible. Also hard to use those fancy Yellowstone Apps that help you read about hikes and such while in park ;) Overall though, you are in a beautiful park- being so centrally located allows you to explore sights before the crowds arrive and after they have had to head back out to their offsite accommodations. We were glad to stay here. At Old Faithful Inn, Verizon accounts had coverage, but nothing from T-Mobile- They had pay phones for people needing to make calls in the lobby! After visiting Grand Teton we think that Xanterra needs to up their game for Yellowstone, especially as it related to food service options and cellular coverage in the park.

I've recently returned to Yellowstone for the first time in six years, and we stayed at Dunraven Lodge for a week. Comfortable room, coffee/tea, refrigerator. Canyon Village is the most centrally-located place to stay inside the park, and although other Canyon lodges are newer, Dunraven is still my sentimental favorite. Two things I can tell you about the park now as opposed to six years ago: (1) it's a lot more crowded, and (2) it's more expensive. I had thought that by going the first week of June, before schools let out for the summer, we'd be avoiding crowds, but that was certainly not the case. I'm saddened to see that the room in which I stayed at Dunraven will cost $400/night next season - I'm not saying it's not worth it, just that the rising cost will make it impractical in the future for many families' budgets, including mine. Mobs of people were arriving throughout the park in tour buses all week (it would appear that Yellowstone as a destination is being heavily marketed in Asian countries in particular), and I worry that Yellowstone could be on its way to becoming available mainly to the wealthy. Will those of us who have treasured the park for its peace and quiet, unobstructed scenic views, and spectacular beauty soon be edged out? With all my heart, I hope not. Meanwhile, I'm so glad I got to stay at Dunraven once more.
