Recently stayed at the lodge. The bar and patio are simply great...nice décor, serene White Mountain view. Room was clean, decent size, comfortable beds. Room price was reasonable. Very biker friendly; Parking, wood planks for kickstand, level gravel parking. The restaurant? Limited choices, expensive for what you got, food not real tasty. Bar? Nice variety but outside of happy hour,... More

We recently traveled to Alpine, AZ & were fortunate to find the Tal-Wi-Wi Lodge. They are located in a beautiful area with peaceful views. We stayed in one of the older units but the accommodations were still quite satisfactory. There is a restaurant/bar on site which is very convenient in this area. The food was great but the beer could've... More

Our 2nd visit, also went last Sept. during elk hunting/mating season - what were we thinking then?? It's much quieter with the elks and Elmer Fudds laying low and the weather is much nicer in May (Memorial Day weekend). In fact, the temperature outdoors is perfect in late May. No hairdryer, no Jacuzzi or pool. Lodge deck has nice, large... More

We are an older retired couple who travel extensively, often on long road trips. We prefer to stay in non-chain motels, cabins and lodges whenever possible, especially when we have the time to spend several nights in one place. If a property just meets our expectations for one of its type, we'd rate it a 3. If we're pleasantly surprised,... More

Recent trip to Alpine had us going out with friends and we decided on the Tal-Wi-Wi lodge restaurant. Since business was slow we had to eat in the bar. Decor is very he-manish with heads of everything on the wall...not a vegan joint. Wait staff was slow to mobilize but we were not in a hurry. Steaks were good. Beer... More

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
