If you like unique buildings and popular attractions, it's worth visiting, even if it's just to see the lobby. If you spend the night, be sure to check out the lobby late at night or early in the morning to see it without all the crowds. The balcony over the entrance is a nice place to relax with a drink...

an approximate time of when Old Faithful will blow. If you don't want to walk out and sit on the bleachers close to Old Faithful, you can sit on the Inn's porch in a relaxing rocking chair... the distance fully enables you to capture the erupting geyser with your camera. There are lots of choices of food types here.

OLD FAITHFUL INN! ONE OF A KIND!! I felt like a Viking Princess who lived in a castle that's made totally of uniquely beautiful wood gathered around my kingdom! :D I especially loved the high-ceilinged lobby! The highest part of the ceiling was a small structure that looked like a treehouse. I wondered if it was, at one time. The... More

This big wood lodge sits on the property of the famous geyser Old Faithful (which erupts every hour) It at the beginning was a rough time, we reserved a room with two king beds and a geyser view window, we got there and they gave us a bottom floor room with a single king sized bed and no AC with...

We took the time to go inside and look around the Inn when we stopped to see Old Faithful. If you walk up to the second floor they have a coffee bar and also a bar. You can then take your beverages and sit out on a covered deck and get a great view of Old Faithful. It was a... More

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
