We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin that was well appointed, comfortable and clean for our 2 nights in west yellowstone. Only down side is being so close to the road and parking lot... so although you're in a cabin, making s'mores at the fire pit, you're looking at traffic and other buildings. but works for us as other options...

the cabins are located between the hotels and the street but it is very calm, very little trafic. Great cabins, clean, well equipped, high end bedding, wifi and 2 tv's. You can easily take your breakfast there. And then there are the camp fires outside to grill a hot dog and marshmallow!..

We stayed at The Explorer Cabins the weekend of July 24. This is the 3rd time that we have stayed at these cabins and it was just as fabulous as the prior stays. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the cabins are very comfortable and clean and the atmosphere is the epitome of a YNP experience. Well done!

We stayed here after driving in from Salt Lake and wish we had stayed an extra night, the kids enjoyed their experiences so much in West Yellowstone (we moved on to in-park lodging). One of the young women at the front desk was from another country and was having problems answering a question I had, but it was quickly handed... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and loved it! It was so clean and we loved having a kitchen. We stayed in the one bedroom king and it was fantastic. We wish it would have had a bathtub for soaking but the shower was large and you have access to the pool and the hot tub in the nearby hotel... More

Nice cosy cabins. 2 bedrooms: one with king size bed, other with small queen size: a bit too small for our 2 teenagers. There is also a pullout bed in the living room, but there aren't curtains on the top window so it's very light in the morning. Very clean. Bathroom is rather small. Lovely stay !

I booked this based on the reviews I read here. Let me start with the positives. The room was clean, convenient to town and Yellowstone Park, and free s'mores each night by the fire pit. Here are the negatives. The kitchen is more of a kitchenette. There were two burners which the handles fell off of every time we used... More

We stayed for 3 nights. 2 families. Booked the 2 bedroom cabins. Kids had fabulous time with the s'mores each night. Staff were very friendly. Very clean. Dishwasher. Pool. If you need extra s'mores, you just ask for more at the desk. Would definitely return.

Lovely, comfortable lodging in a private cabin. All the amenities. Like living in a tiny house property. We found accommodations comfortable and well equipped with many items we needed. Firepit outside was an enjoyable addition. Thanks for the smores!
