Very basic amenities but nice and clean. Great location. Walls a bit thin and the upstairs neighbors were heard too well. Supplied a fan which was nice. No elevator that we could find be aware of that!

If, like us, you want to get up early to maximise your chances of seeing wildlife, better to stay within the park. Hayden Valley is just down the road, Lamar Valley a 30 minute drive. Also Canyon of Yellowstone with its amazing gorge and waterfalls is tight on the doorstep. You check-in in the main complex where there are also... More

Our expectation was this would be a bit "motel-ish" so we really went into the Dunraven with lower expectations that we had for the other lodging choices we made for our family vacation. The building itself is quite nice and looks very inviting, but the room we were given #416, was very small for 2 adults and a 15-year-old. Two... More

Recently spent three nights at Dunraven Lodge in Canyon Lodge complex. While the property is average even by National Park standards, the location is ideal and, in my opinion, its best feature. Dunraven Lodge is very close to both Hayden Valley and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone (which was a highlight for me), and only a 45 minute drive to... More

Dunraven looks like it has been recently modernized. So, the rooms are cute and are a nice size. The table in the room was the location for family game night. The staff was nice and accommodating. I asked for a room change(original room near elevator, vending area and ice machine) and they changed it without a problem. Try to get... More

Wow! I think because we stayed in cabins in Glacier National Park, my husband and I were expecting our accommodations at Yellowstone to be rustic and outdated. Nothing could be further from the truth! Our room at Dunraven Lodge was modern and clean! The shower was nice and large, the beds were comfortable, and we had a Keurig coffee machine... More

we wanted to stay in the cabins but couldnt get 6 nights so we stayed at Dunraven the first night. It was very nice and if we return I think we will just stay here the whole time. Its like a nice motel in the middle of the park where the cabins are the same price and more rustic and... More

Stayed here in 2012 and added six more nights in May/June 2014. Dunraven offers one of the best lodging choices for two reasons: nicest rooms and most central location for park exploration! The condition is still like new with a great bathroom,coffee maker,table and 2 chairs and a bright and well maintained rooms. As usual, the staff is cheerful,efficient and... More

Great rooms, though a bit dated in decor. The building has a nice porch area where we sat outside and played cards one night, and there is a large living room inside the building as well. The rooms were very clean and the staff there was friendly. We didn't spend much time in the room itself because the park was... More

Stayed at Dunraven Lodge for three days in early June. Not sure what makes this place a "lodge" and not sure how Dunraven gets ranked #1 in Yellowstone National Park and Cascade Lodge gets ranked #5? Dunraven and Cascade Lodges are about 5 yards apart from each other and at first blush appear identical. Maybe Dunraven is newer, but the... More
