Do not miss this American icon of national parks. It is beautiful and rustic. The ld buses safe still there. Dinner was actually very good. Take time to sit around and soak it in.

I have not stayed in this hotel but my husband and I had breakfast here. The experience was worthwhile especially after having seen The Old Faithful geyser. After reading about this place in one of C.J. Box's books, I knew I had to see this place for myself. I had to see The Crow's Nest, the highest point of the... More

Although it was too expensive a place for us to stay, we had the privilege of enjoying a delicious breakfast in their restaurant. The rustic decor was beautifully presented, and their gift shop made you want to buy everything, it was well merchandised. The staff were very friendly.

Breakfast was great. It doesn't really matter though, because you need to eat at Old Faithful Inn, period. You can go see Old Faithful Geyser before and after breakfast. There are other geysers and pools within walking distance as well.

The room was nice & large, bed was OK in terms of comfort. Large restroom. No a/c in room so we used open windows. Room was decent and comfy but rate was really outrageous at over $250/night. Large hallways throughout the hotel and good location if staying at OF. If I was to do the trip again, I would stay... More

The setting is amazing, with free access to Old Faithful at any time of the day or night. The building is relatively new and the hotel rooms were reasonably good. HOWEVER, we had booked cabins, but there were several problems with this in the winter. The paths were not shoveled and the snow was deep, so any time you wanted... More

Old Faithful is worth visiting no matter how many time you have been. We last visited with my daughter, her husband and son. It was fun to see it again, especially since my grandson and son in law had not been before. My grandson was full of questions. We visited in Oct 2012 it was a cold day and even... More

What would a trip to Yellowstone without a visit to this iconic place? The Lodge is unequalled anywhere in the world. It is huge, beautifully constructed with heavy timbers, stone, large open areas and a 2 story mechanical pendulum clock that fascinated us. When one arrives, it is a bit confusing finding where to park for the most convenient access... More

Worth the trip to view and tour even if you don't have reservations. Old yet functional and updated in its own way. The rooms are great as long as it is not hot. Windows open and small oscilating fan does work. Enjoyable and worth the convenience of being so close and walking distance to Old Faithful. Restaurant is great too!... More

This is such an atmospheric log-built hotel that it is worth the stratospheric cost to stay there for one night, at least, The rooms vary in size, position and cost, but all have the benefit of the location and the anbience of the multi-storied lobby and the bar and restaurant. You'll need to book a long time in advance, but... More
