The lodge consists of about a dozen different buildings all with slightly different access and views. The Casa Grande Units share parking with the visitor center and trailheads, so sometimes parking is limited. The units with possibly the best view are those in building A. From the balconies of Building A you have an excellent view of the window and sunset. I know that most people coming to the park are active hikers and steps mean nothing to them. However, if you have mobility issues or just plane bad knees you need to realize that you have to walk down steps from the parking lot to Casa Grande Lodge units and if you are on an upper floor take more stairs up to your room. Not internet or TV in the rooms. The lodge has a fairly good restaurant not too far from the units.

Went during shut down and it was nice

We went during the shut down on Jan 11-13th. The park was nice and was not crowded. We did see park rangers hiking on the trail which was nice. The pit toilets on the trail were not cleaned but other than that, I could not tell there was a shut down. We stayed in a cottage. They are rustic and need lots of updating. But you stay there for the view and convenience to the trail heads. Don't have high exceptions for the room. It's basic and very very old. The beds creaked with every move and the shower was so small I could hardly wash my hair without my elbows touching the wall or the shower curtain. The floors were just concrete or really old tile. But it was warm at night and clean enough. The cottage had a fridge and microwave which was nice. We had awesome cell service too which was a nice surprise! Overall, I would stay there again.

Maybe not a place for high maintenance people but perfect for anyone who loves the area and enjoys the great outdoors! Expect rustic rooms that are clean and have sufficient space to exist together. Perfect for late night card games! The convenience store and restaurant take care of most necessary items. The views are amazing and several great hikes originate here.

Truly amazing views, clean rooms and friendly, helpful staff

As many reviewers have pointed out there are things that need to be updated and the Lodge seems to be making improvements. Here is the bottom line, even if I knew nothing changed, I would still go back and stay as long as I could. Here is why: this is the best location I've ever stayed at and the view is worth every cent, the room was comfortable enough and it was clean and the staff cared. I went while the NPS was shut down and the employees of the Lodge stepped up to offer advice, maps, etc. What you can expect: unbeatable views (day and night), clean but tiny bathroom, microwave, fridge, basic toiletries, AC/Heat, limited outlets (I had to be creative), a hair dryer and a small table and chairs. My room also had a private balcony with chairs from which I saw a lot of wildlife and watched the stars. You can also expect to hear your neighbors as the walls are thin. I had zero cell phone reception in my room and the wifi in the restaurant/gift shop only worked for phone calls and texting. That is absolutely not a complaint. I expected that (it is on their website very clearly) and appreciated the time away from the world. From a lodge room, you can walk across the parking lot to the restaurant, store 4-5 trails into the Chisos. We brought food with us and also ate at the restaurant a few times.

Great location, but dated rooms.

Reception staff were very friendly. Our room was in building B, on the second floor. We were lucky to have new mattresses - so the beds were comfortable. The rooms are basic, dated, and not the cleanest. Our room had a refrigerator, but no TV (which was fine for us). WiFi is only available at the Park Visitor Center and in the lodge reception area. The location is amazing, with breathtaking views in every direction. Trails start from the parking lot. The restaurant onsite is good, with sufficient choices and fair prices. Sunset is amazing, either from the trail or from the restaurant (get a table near the window). Bottom line is...location and Chisos Mountain Lodge has that.
