If you're looking for a place in Alpine, I would definitely recommend the Tal Wi Wi. The rooms in building A are the best! I had a room with a gas fireplace, a hot tub, and an enormous shower. It was extremely luxurious, and the price was quite reasonable. The only downside was that the hotel web page doesn't really... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find that a room was available for one night on a busy holiday week-end! Check in was easy and then we had a nice late lunch at the bar/restaurant. My husband had chicken strips, which he wasn't too crazy about. We shared onion rings, which were excellent and came with a yummy chipotle sauce. I... More

Riding our motorcycles up Hwy191 we showed up tired and hungry on a Saturday evening. Check in was a breeze (they do not accept American Express) and our friendly host quickly got us settled in for the night. Rather than going back into Alpine (about 5 miles) for dinner we ate on property and were pleasantly surprised with a tasty... More

I have read all the reviews and it is apparent that some of these folks were staying somewhere else because they certainly weren't staying at Tal-Wi-Wi. This place is everything anyone could want in a weekend getaway. In the sublime Northern Arizona mountains with Elk and other wildlife abundant. The staff is excellent and as friendly and respectful as anyone... More

Tal-Wi-Wi used to have an on-site, upscale restaurant that was quite good--and rather expensive. The food served in the saloon was uninspired, as if it were an afterthought. The owners have made major changes to the property in the last few years, including closing the restaurant (it is now a workout room), and improving the fare in the saloon. Good... More

The lodge and restaurant are beautiful, clean and nestled in the amazing white mountains. The decor of the restaurant was above average and the wait staff very attentive. The food was slightly above average and the prices ok. We did not stay in the hotel part. The saloon was in the restaurant and although we did not have a drink... More

Service was great. Food was yummy! Prices varied with entrees. Felt the Prime Rib Dinner as well as some other entrees were too pricey but the kids menu was on target. Happy Hour everyday!!!!! Would visit again!

This is an amazing place to visit and stay. It's nestled in a mountain setting,has an excellent restaurant and saloon, and very comfortable rooms. The owners are very friendly and offer excellent service. Great area for fishing, hiking, seeing wildlife, and just relaxing.

We were very pleased with the Tal-Wi-Wi Lodge. It's a lovely setting outside town, very peaceful and quiet. We chose one of the older rooms, as it was charming, and had great ventilation, so it was cool and yet cozy. The new rooms are even nicer and have air conditioning ... but who needs it in the mountains? The restaurant... More
