Our 4-star review includes an asterisk. We really like the cabins and found them to be clean, updated, and good accommodations. However, there were a slew of maintenance issues that were of some concern; namely, the front door wouldn't lock and was difficult to close, a ceiling fan was really loud, the TV didn't work, a window screen was broken,...

The cabins, the views, the facilities and our breakfast . . . A+ The gift shop was excellent and all of the staff was so helpful. This was our first stop on a two week driving tour of South Dakota and Wyoming. The bar was set very high!!! You will NOT be disappointed!

Location, location! How often do you get to sit on your front porch and view the sites of the rugged Badlands? Well we did and loved every minute if it. The lodge consists of individual cabins located behind the park headquarters and Cedar Pass Restaurant. The inside of the cabins features pine lined walls and ceiling. Big double sink area... More

When I booked the national park lodge I did not expect much. Figured there would be no AC, frig, TV but I was wrong. We were in a wonderful cabin with two queen beds, double sinks in the bathroom, front and back porch with adirondack chairs , and all of the things I thought would be lacking. The beds were... More

Our cabin was excellent. We had 2 queen beds and 1 queen futon. We had a frig, microwave, and a GREAT SPACE bathroom. Everything was modern/updated. We had an excellent view from the back of the cabin and nice sitting area in the front. We were traveling with a group and after a day hiking we came back to our... More

My husband & I loved this cabin! It was so cute & clean & spacious. There were rabbits around outside everywhere. Nice chairs on the front porch for relaxing. A coffee pot, AC, & fridge in the room. (Ammenities I didn't expect). Excellent views of the Badlands!!! The beds could stand to be updated, but that is my one &... More

Brand new cabins. Two of them worked well for our family of six, and at a reasonable price to be inside the park. Clean and well-kept. Staff was friendly and moderately helpful. Located right next to the visitors center. Would definitely stay here again. Photo was a view from our back deck.

We stayed here on our first night to Yellowstone. We loved this place! It was a great hotel to kick off our trip. Breathtaking views and the kids loved hiking the hills. Very reasonably priced which we appreciated. Thank you for a great place to stay!

Our family spent a night at cedar pass lodge and were pleasantly surprised at the Great cabins and great location. Very clean and had the amenities we needed. The only drawback was the restaurant which had crazy prices. However, we did like the local beer they had in tap. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend to others.

The Lodges are fantastic to stay in! They are beautiful inside with all the warm wood and delightful beds. Plus the bathroom was very spacious. I loved the front and back porch with chairs and a picnic table, plus the view was lovely! It's in walking distance of the restaurant/gift shop where we enjoyed our hamburger and fries a lot....
