We had some time to kill before Old Faithful was scheduled to erupt, so I asked the family to walk through the hotel lobby with me. Amazing architecture with a log cabin feel. Three floors that I counted that overlook the lobby. Wooden staircases, Crow’s Nest, large stone fireplace (and a great price for a beer in a National Park... More

My family (husband, 2 teenage sons & I) spent 2 nights here during the 1st week of June. It was plenty busy so I don't think we would've enjoyed it as much later in the summer with bigger crowds. Being able to walk out to the geysers based on their approximate timetables in the lobby was nice. The meal in... More

Take a few minutes after seeing Old faithful erupt and walk over to the largest lodgepole pine building in the world. The lobby is impressive. Climb the stairs and find a seat on the railing. A perfect place to relax and people watch. The ice cream shop sells huckleberry frozen yogurt which is an absolute MUST. Get a cone and... More

The Old Faithful Inn is a place to go and unwind and enjoy nature. The original rooms, while providing no bathroom, are definitely a treat to stay in. Other rooms offer clean accommodations.

After Old Faithful finished we wandered over tho the Inn. Awesome building construction in timber. Huge fireplaces in towering main foyer. Spent some time just relaxing in the comfy chairs, shopping and then onto the 2nd floor deck to watch Old Faithful spout again.

My wife and I were driving to the hotel and she had an inner ear issue with the elevation. Urgent Care in Laramie WY said to stay in Laramie for the next few nights and Yellowstone Lodge fully refunded our rate even though we were inside their cancellation window because of the medical emergency. We were horribly disappointed because the... More

First hint - make your reservation a year in advance - as soon as the window opens for reserving rooms. If you miss that, then wait until about a month before your intended visit and start checking every day, several times a day. People can cancel their reservations up to 48 hours in advance with no penalty, so if you... More

Was very pleasantly surprised by the entire experience from check in to dining at the Lodge Restuarant. The service is outstanding and the experience is one I wish I could share with my entire family. Definitely did not want to leave.

Sure this hotel does not have the bells and whistles one normally expects from a 5 star hotel, but the chance to stay in this awesome piece of living history far exceeds even a 5 star rating. The moment you enter the 7 story lobby, you are left speechless. Nothing is as grand as this grand old lady, and we... More
