A beautiful location in nature

Posted Oct 4, 2014 on Hotels
We love this place. A great place to get away. Very cozy cabins. The cafe and restaurant served good hearty food, but the staff had a bit of end-of/-season familiarity with each other, and casuality that seemed to make them indifferent to guests in their care. Still, we'd go again.

Cabin nightmare

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: The tube t.vs needs DVD player or cable . The bed is old and the wooden toilet seat could be improved . Canyon burger could be improved very dry .
Location: Johnson canyons a must see
Beautiful location rustic rundown cabins that need major renovations

Lovely cabin

We hiked the canyon, came back down and got into our cabin. We had a small deck with a lovely view. We had our dinner in the restaurant and both enjoyed our meals. The service was excellent.

enjoyed the stay and location

Posted May 24, 2014 on Hotels
It was a little of a nightmare after driving 9 hours to be told what you booked isn't available. We got another room which wasn't what we wanted we were satisfied. They offered a fire wood stove but no matches or fire wood were at the unit so it was mildly annoying to split and gather my own wood and find a fire source. The bed was very uncomfortable and I was glad I drank enough to pass out. If your looking for a rustic retreat with beautiful scenery this is a great quiet spot but set your expectations a little lower than mine and I assure you will enjoy.

Decent place if you're not a princess

Decent place to stay. Don't expect anything fancy. Stay away if you're a princess or married to one.

The cabins themselves are nice, but the Johnston Canyon Resort is a bit of a tourist trap. We cooked our own food on a camp stove, as the food at the restaurant seemed a bit questionable.

Less than expected

Posted Aug 12, 2013 on Hotels
Lock to cabin door did not even work. Very uncomfortable sleep. Overall stay poor. Like sleeping in car, camping or a cheap hostel at a hotel price
