We have stayed here a number of times over the years. The cabins are old, tired, and in need of some updating. The location....can't be beat. You can hang out at Artist's Point and watch the sun set, than head over to the lodge for a bite and then to your cabin. No TV, No Wi-fi....remember you are roughing it... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June in a Frontier cabin with 2 double beds. The cabin by itself was pretty old and extremely basic and the bathroom was cramped up, but it was the cheapest in the park and it's proximity to the Canyon area is unbeatable for the price. We were 4 adults. It made... More

The cabins are very 50's and equipped with normal amenities you'd expect. Parking is a bonus, we had no trouble parking 10 feet from the door. Each cabin unit contains 2-4 rooms and are spacious. Beds were comfortable enough, nothing special but everyone got a good night's sleep. Depending on where your cabins are located, it might be a short... More

I can agree with some of the other reviews. There's nothing really special about the cabins. I chose them because they were available and not outrageously priced. When you pull up, they do feel like cabins! It was warm and there was a bed and a working bathroom. Otherwise, it looks rather old. While I guess there's no wireless connection,... More

In the 50's this would have been considered a nice "motor hotel;" by 21st c. standards, not so nice. We called it "The Stalag." The heat worked; otherwise non-descript with no amenities. And in Canyon Village the food choices were over-priced and somewhere between "bland" and "abominable," what you unfortunately get stuck with if there's a monopoly on food service.... More

This was a cabin at Canyon Lodge. It is dated but clean. The bed was comfortable. The price was reasonable. Stayed here 3 nights. Was a good location to see the Grand canyon of Yellowstone area. We also went to Yellowstone lake from this location.

Hotel is new, beds were very comfortable. There is no TV, no air conditioning, no radio. I didn't miss them but you might. Had a Keurig coffee maker which was excellent. Bring food for breakfast and dinner. Wait for dinner at the restaurant was over an hour every night we were there and it was the slow season! Not much... More

We were on a cross country road trip starting from California and had to stop at Yellowstone. We decided to stay in the park itself- NOTE YOU MUST BOOK EARLY! Reservations are refundable anyway. We could have camped outside but it means more gear we would have to cram into an already full car. We choose to stay at the... More

This facility, like most of those in Yellowstone, is many decades old. Our cabin was very bare bones and skimpy. There was a small table and chair, a queen bed, and a sink in the bedroom. We were not able to tell how well the shower functioned, as it was cold that first night and the next day there was... More

I have stayed in national parks my entire life and know that you have to accept the accommodation standards are far different to the rest of the world. $225/night gets you a room in the park, nothing flash. The Frontier cabins seem new. The bathroom is good with a surprising strong and hot shower. There's a reasonable amount of space... More
