I love the massive old hotel. Climb all the way to the top if they still let you. Great views of geysers in the morning

Old Faithful Inn is one of the iconic features in Yellowstone NP. But unless you are prepared for the large number of park visitors in the area you may find a visit to the inn less than impressive. Be prepared and take time to look beyond the crowds and marvel at the beauty of one of the largest log building... More

We arrived too late to see Old faithful blow so we had to kill some time before the next viewing. We stopped at this gift shop and got a quick bite. It was quaint but we enjoyed it. It is very pricey but most attractions are!

Unfortunately, they were completely booked at the time of our visit but we had to stop by and check it out anyway. We were in awe of how well preserved and beautiful the building was. The wood finishing is gorgeous, the upstairs deck has a GREAT view of Old Faithful, the ice cream parlor was the best in the area... More

We didn't stay at the Inn but had lunch there and had a look around the place and having done this were pleased we decided not too. Very ordinary and expensive, what we've found at the National Parks accommodations with the exception of Brice.

Great place to pick up an ice cream or snack after waiting or watching Old Faithful. There is a restaurant and usual gift shop but these tend to get very busy. Loved the timber construction of the roof. Almost a work of art. Smokers beware - the whole area has a smoking ban.

The Old Faithful Inn was one primary reason I chose to visit Yellowstone. Its history is fascinating and its location is a great 'home base', since many of the early-morning bus tours leave from OFI. It's operated by Xanterra, and although they have some harsh critics, I thought that, in general, they do a very good job here. I got... More

Even if you don't book a room here (and we did not), it is worthwhile to enter the lobby and check out the construction of the Inn. It was amazing to see how the logs and stone in the fireplace were fitted together.
