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.

The main (old) building is spectacular. Over 100 years old and the architecture and wood construction is to marvel at. But if you stay in the old building you have to share a bathroom. Not so bad but still (they provide very nice robes, but for those of us who have to get up in the middle of the night...).... More

The cabins were of a okay size and contained everything you needed. It's a joke you have to pay for internet in the day and age but good in a way to just take in the surroundings. Would stay again.

For building buffs, this is a must. Stroll through the various parts of the lobby, rooms, restaurant and deck. Workmanship like you've never seen anywhere.

The first time I remember hearing a lot about this lodge was during the summer of 1988 when the fires were raging out of control in the park. I still have the picture of the National Geographic with the fires knocking on the front door of the lodge. Its really a neat well built building. The inside is incredible

A beautiful and impressive log structure. The history makes it more impressive. Visit the lobby and notice the roof and beams, as well as the massive clock and fireplace. Have a drink on the outdoor balcony, waiting for Old Faithful to go off. Great fun.

We booked late for the Inn and got one of the last rooms available. We had a standard room with shared bathroom so I wasn't sure what we were in for. When we checked in and saw our room I was very pleased. We may have had one of the basic rooms but it was in the original part of... More

Not only very impressive in its scale and architecture but a great place to hang out while you are in the Old Faithful Geyser area. A great place to grab lunch or a beverage. The most impressive of the old historical National Park lodges I have visited with the possible exception of the Lodge at Mount Hood, OR.

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.
