We stayed at the Snow Lodge but joined one of the free tours of Old Faithful Inn. I would highly recommend this 45 minute tour for anyone looking to learn more history about the amazing hotel. Our guide (I forgot her name) was extremely knowledgable. During July, the tours were offered 4 times a day.

I knew the hotel was old but I was a little disappointed in the room. We stayed in a geyser view room and it was small, the bathroom was small and it's so strange to raise your windows for air. There is no a/c, wifi or tv. I did miss those amenities. I probably wouldn't go later in the summer... More

My son and I stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in the new part of the inn and the room was tiny. That would have been ok, but the bathroom was awkward and the shower was clearly not cleaned before we got into the room. I didn't notice this until I got into the shower the next morning. There...

We decided to vacation at Yellowstone and were not initially able to get reservations here at the Old Faithful Inn. We really wanted to stay here, so we kept looking online for cancellations. We were in luck, and were able to get 3 rooms here for 2 nights. That said, we had to check in/out each night because the rooms... More

It was fine. Whole park watches this huge Roman candle explode on time. Although it was a highlight, we prefered the more colourful alternatives on the various trails

This 110-year old, seven-story log structure is simply gorgeous. Take the 45-minute tour to learn about its features and the history of Yellowstone tourism. To get the full old-timey experience, you can book a room at the Inn, though you’ll need to plan in advance or hope for a cancellation as these rooms are in high demand. Note that some... More

This is a 'trip' back in time. The construction of this inn, took some imagination and a place of wonder. Were it not for the extraordinary lead times to get a room here, we would have done so. Perhaps on our fourth visit, unless I've croaked by then.

We stayed at Old Faithful Inn (in the newer wing) for one night before we headed for Roosevelt Lodge. The Inn is so interesting in its architecture and design. It may have seemed a bit pricey, but when you arrive here you understand that you are paying to experience a really special place. We loved the proximity to the Upper... More

Bare necessities but the structure is impressive. Not a fan of no wifi, tvs or shared bathrooms, but I get it.

The wooden exterior and design is imposing and there is a very good viewing area with seats where you can have a drink and watch the eruptions. I cannot comment on the rooms or service as we stayed at the Snow Lodge which was excellent. Our first impression was of the crowded central reception area which also houses the gift... More
