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

Beautiful delicious restaurant but after that forget it! The rooms were hot but if you opened windows ALL the smokers smoke came in. You can't sit on porch because everyone smokes out there. When we tried to go on beautiful balcony of restaurant guess what... Everyone was smoking there too! Go if you are a smoker, otherwise skip it if... More

My husband and I decided to drive the Devil's highway along the eastern part of AZ. The drive from our home was going to be the adventure and we needed a place to spend the night. Through reviews we picked the Tal Wi Wi Lodge. We arrived after a terrific day exploring part of the high country of AZ and... More

Unfortunately, the new part was not yet completed, which we were hoping for when we made the reservation. Our room was definitely sad & dated. The bedroom/sitting area had received a face lift with knotty pine walls & wood-slat blinds, but the bathroom was way past due for a renovation. We ate at the restaurant & met the lovely lady...
