We had two rooms/bungalows for a single night recently and both rooms were large & beautiful, the nicest of any lodge we stayed at on our trip. Rooms were huge with nice corner baths & separate shower room.
Contrary to one or two posts both rooms were fitted with mosquito nets in excellent condition.
The welcome was warm. Grounds were lush and green. Food was good and there was plenty of choice . It rained in the morning of the night we stayed here ( although it was firmly in the dry season) and umbrellas for our use quickly materialised outside our rooms and in the restaurant. toiletries & hairdryers were all provided.
It's true that the road from the main road to the hotel is rough but it's rural Tanzania & this is typical for the location- that is why 4x4s are used. Similarly I've seen one comment complaining that if you left doors open insects came in- again that comes with the territory, if it bothers you don't leave the doors open or simply don't come to Tanzania. Similarly the suggestion that the lodge is " a long drive from the crater" is unrealistic. It is a short drive from the park gates after which there is certainly a bit of a drive to the crater rim but it's location is part of the reason it is comparatively inexpensive as opposed to accommodation on the crater rim. We stayed in a lodge on the rim the following night which for similar budget was much more basic & where unquestionably the temperature was much, much cooler.
The usual "escort back to room after dark" service applied & staff were friendly.
Our only small criticism is that the bar could have been better stocked.
all in all we would thoroughly recommend Endoro Lodge- provided a lot for the price
