The lodge is beautiful and rustic. The lobby is beautiful. Our room was the least expensive with a bathroom. Many room categories require sharing a bathroom. The sink and mirror are in the bedroom portion of the room. The toilet and shower are separate. The lighting in the room was very dim. The beds were comfortable. The chest of drawers... More

You know your life is good when you get to stay in a room at Old Faithful Inn. Tour groups stop by just to gaze at the architecture of the lobby. They rush in, take pictures and then head back to the bus after watching Old Faithful Geyser shoot off. For some fortunate few they get to actually stay there,... More

I was a little concerned about facing crushing crowds at the Old Faithful Inn. While there are plenty of folks around during the day, come night fall, the buses leave and people are settling in at other locations around the park. In early July, at about 10pm there were wolves roaming around the outside of the lodge. I booked our... More

If you're expecting modern accommodations, this probably is not your cup of tea. But if you want an experience of a lifetime, steeped in history, and magnificent location, then you'll be more than happy staying here. The setting is among geothermal activity. Old Faithful right outside. Most rooms in the Old House share a bathroom but a few do not.... More

The room was nothing special (although most of the time was not spent in the room). We reserved 3 rooms and we had one room overlooking the old faithful geyser. Even that view wasn't worth it since the window did not open. However, I would still recommend staying at this hotel. They have a viewing platform where you can grab... More

WOW! Talk about a special place ... historic, unique, huge, and well-situated in the park. We watched Old Faithful perform while we sat on the deck and then again, close up, just 300 yards away. The Inn itself is a wonderful structure and just awed us. Our Caravan Tour included 'lodging', so we were not paying the 'rack-rate', We we... More

My wife and I had the experience of staying in the rustic, original part of the Old Faithful Inn, and, it was a wonderful experience. Sure, you have 'community' bathrooms, but the experience of "roughing it" is well worth it! The on-site restaurant was reasonable, price-wise, and the food was good. Such a pleasant experience overall--we loved it!

First, don't buy all the people saying not to stay at Old Faithful Inn. Yes, the standard rooms are just that but you are paying for the historical ambience and location. So close to so many things you can walk too in your leisure. Definitely a must on everyone's plans on coming to Yellowstone. Who knows, you may see a... More

We fell in love with Old Faithful Inn the moment we pulled up and saw a bison grazing next to the building! The rusting interior is really magnificent. We stayed in the original part of the inn. I was put off when making the reservations that we would not have a private bath( book early) but you don't even notice... More

The atmosphere of this place has to be experienced to appreciate. You can visit during the day, eat a meal or get an ice cream cone, then go watch Old Faithful, but you will have missed the character of Yellowstone. Take the time, spend the $$, and spend a night here. Make a reservation WAY in advance, and try to... More
