It's one of the greatest of the old park lodges in the national park system and is awesome with its huge wooden poles and beams. We stayed here for a night . The room was small but you're supposed to be out sightseeing anyway. Lots of history here.

We did not stay here but went in to this this very iconic hotel lobby. It is spectacular. They do a very nice informative tour each hour and it is free.

Have traveled through Yellowstone Park with my family dozens of times but never have been able to stay at the Inn. This trip we made reservations well in advance and were able to fulfill a longtime wish. We weren't disappointed by our experience. The rustic grandeur of this amazing building is captivating. Always a stopover when we have visited in... More

Good Food, Great service, delightful atmosphere. We were here the first week that they opened for the season. We had lunch it was a bit of a wait but worth the wait the food was great.

This is an amazing building. The tour is very interesting and worth the 45 minutes it takes. The architecture of the building is incredible. There are seats around the fireplace and on the second and third floor where you can just relax and take in the sights and sounds.

It was very cool to take the tour and find out the history this is place made of Trees!! Looks like a humungous Tree house the only disapointing part is the restaurants, not family friendly $$$$ very expensive!!

When I'm in Yellowstone, Old Faithful Inn is down my list of my preferred accommodations. The reasons: Rooms are VERY spare (no wall décor), odd by today's standards (few electric outlets, difficult to access), subject to a host of things that go bump in the night (or that grind or pop or clank or hiss), and very much in need...

While it is an awesome display Summer is a no as the crowds are ridiculous. We went the second week of September when the crowds are not as bad. The Inn is a nice place to relax and have a meal and a drink. Prices are a bit high but this is a tourist attraction, and it does attract. Old... More

The Old Faithful Inn, located in Yellowstone Nat'l Park, WY is simple another tourist trap; with overpriced food and beverages. As well as trinkets, postcards, souvenirs', and the like! We would not stop here again in the future. Our travel here was a couple years ago, and date not available on the drop down box below!

too crowded. the inn and parking lot is full of people just browsing or visiting. If you stay there then there is no place to sit or relax. We went with friends and had not one single place to just sit and talk with them. we had to park very far from the lobby and then walk a long way... More
