This is such a beautiful Inn and amazing it is old and still thriving! I love the fireplace and the fact we could walk on a couple of levels. I enjoyed the tour that is offered.

This is a must see even if you don't stay there. It books up pretty quick. Walk in and take in all of the architecture and rustic of times gone by. The large magnificent beauty is amazing and takes you back in time. Take time to take it all in. Great beauty and not to be missed!

By far the most historic and fancy hotel ever. The entire place is made of logs and wood. And at nighttime, there is piano music. Very comforting and nice place to be in. (the mint ice cream there is superb)

This parkitechture building looks magnificent from both in and outside the building. You can spend hours in the lodge marveling at its impressive size and use of space. The staircases are mesmerizing The accommodations are less so. The room was adequately appointed but offered nothing special. If you can, time your visit so that you don't have to stay here.... More

Yes, the restaurant is special and worth the price. Yes, the views of Old Faithful from the 2nd floor deck are super cool. Yes, the rooms in the Old House are quaint (i.e. tiny) with minimal amenities (not even a bathroom!) But, best of all is the amazing lobby. I spent three nights there and very much enjoyed plopping down... More

We stopped here on a day trip of the park and had a great time. We made it to Old Faithful for an eruption and came into the Inn for breakfast. The buffet was delicious and we took some time to explore the Inn. It is a beautiful piece of architecture and I recommend stopping in.

We did not stay here, but we stopped in based off reviews and it was worth it. The inside is gorgeous! There wood staircases are breathtaking. Even the bathrooms are great. They have granite walls which was great. We grabbed ice cream at the little shop in there. There is also a little deli in there, but be warned it... More

We had dinner here our last night in Yellowstone. The meal was decent, but a welcome change from eating in the RV. It was a treat to tour the entire inn and the gift shop is a must stop. Make sure to make reservations as we did not and we had to wait 45 minutes.

Toured around the Old Faithful area by foot and bike rental. When we finished, went inside the Inn to look around. Happened to get there for the free tour. Very interesting tidbits about the hotel and Yellowstone in general. Our tour guide was great. Well worth the stop.

We didn't stay here, so take this review with a grain of salt. We tried to get a room here about 6 months before our visit, but it was sold out. Bummer because we ended up at Grant Village, which was the worst hotel we stayed in on our trip. What's so cool about the Old Faithful Inn is its... More
