The hotel is over a hundred years old so it's not the most modern. The rooms were smaller but the beds were bigger than in canyon lodge. It was our favorite of the three we stayed in. Very beautiful lodge. Also, its built around old faithful so you can head out when time or grab a bench and watch from... More

If you are going to Yellowstone and are looking for an historical experience, then it doesn't get more historical than the premier hotel in the first national park in the world. The Old Faithful Inn is an engineering marvel, capturing the sense of a rustic log cabin and the forest itself. It feels like the most appropriate place to stay... More

A year ago I called and reserved 3 rooms with the "geyser side" view. I have stayed in many national park lodges so I knew what to expect. The Inn is beautiful, and also a zoo when you walk in the door to check in. We had 6 adults and 2 kids in our party. Our rooms were on the... More

Stayed in the OFI for 3 nights and had breakfast and dinner in the dining room. We chose the buffet breakfast and were shown to our table and left to wait for the waitress to offer coffee/juice/toast. And waited, and waited. I finally asked the cashier what we had to do and she fetched a pot of coffee and asked... More

Love the location of the layout of the Inn. Do not expect TV air condition or Wi-Fi but at this location you do not need it. The rooms were very comfortable within its originality of when it was built I love the experience would definitely stay there again it is worth every penny. Breakfast at the general store on location... More

You pay a premium price for staying here and does not fulfill our expectations. Peak season crowds were very noisy, over crowded spaces and restaurants, kids allowed to run wild - does not qualify as a vacation for us. I would recommend saving money by staying in West Yellowstone or Cody, WY and take day trips into the park. Sad... More

The Old Faithful Inn is a great place to visit for the activity. Watch Old Faithful erupt, walk among the geysers and hot pools, watch the animals as they wander around, and stop in the visitor's center for information and gift shopping.

We arrived with low expectations as we had read reviews on trip advisor but given the convenience to the park we decided to try it. Worse than we imagined and spoiled our visit to the park. After a disgusting lunch and rubbish sleep we left at 6.30am!

I stayed here during a cross country trip with my boyfriend and it was without a doubt the best place we stayed! We had a private room with a private bath and it was so so so special. You walk in there is a welcoming bed and windows overlooking the mountains. The best part was the bathroom-- complete with a... More

The Old Faithful Inn should be reviewing me as a guest - not the other way around. When you arrive you will certainly have a jaw dropping moment that such a great building / institution has been so well preserved. Its an old building - and we stayed in the main building - which means a historic log walled room.... More
