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

This beautiful old rustic inn speaks to you immediately of a bygone era where the railroad rule the tourist trade. The sheer size of it is impressive but we so enjoyed the feel of it blending in with the surroundings. We did not stay in the rooms, just enjoyed the lobby and surrounding areas.

Let me start with the good: the hotel is impressive, the old structure, the rustic feel, the craftmanship - definitely recommend to see. We have stayed in the old part of the hotel, so we had to share a bathroom and a shower. everything was kept clean and we had no issues with it - it was better than expected.... More

While the hotel is historic and well maintained, the rooms are very small, dimly lit and poorly arranged, such that one walks and walks and walks down dark corridors to get to your room. The rooms are over priced. Staying in the cabins in my view is more practical.
