You can't miss seeing the beautiful lobby of this inn if you're in the area... But you can miss staying overnight. :-) I had read the reviews, so I wasn't surprised to find a very basic room when we arrived. I didn't mind, though, because we hardly spent any time in the room and the inn has an excellent location... More

I was so looking forward to staying at the Old Faithful Inn, apparently the largest log structure in the world. It is an unbelievable building! We arrived very early for our reservation and were thrilled that our room was ready. We had a tremendous amount to luggage and were grateful to receive cheerful help from one of the bell staff....

It's between a 3 and a 4 .... we ended up staying here 3 nights and had booked over a year in advance. I loved the location - I wanted to stay in the park but didn't want to move about that much so this was perfect. The dining room is the best out of all I tried. The rooms... More

When we first entered the inn and marveled at the intricate wooden structures surrounding the main floor, we had high expectations; however, these expectations immediately plummeted when we entered our family suite. The two rooms were crammed together with barely enough room for a small basin and fan. We had to share a bathroom with about 10 rooms on the... More

It is old, it costs more than places that you will enjoy more. Once in your room you could be at any old hotel anywhere (one without a TV). Stay in one of the cheaper cabins or in a tent. You will feel like you were more connected to nature. Then go by the Inn to visit it as a... More

We booked a trip to GTNP/YS 3 months in advance (last minute in YS terms) and so felt pretty lucky to have got a room at Old Faithful at all. I feel the review warrants two considerations. One being the lodge and personnel itself which of course is amazing. There are so many details in every nook and cranny in... More

The best and only good thing about the Old Faithful Inn is its location and the amazing architecture of the main building. Being able to watch Old Faithful from the second story terrace or sneak out to see a late night eruption in the moonlight is a real treat. But don't delude yourself into thinking that you are going to... More

We stayed one night at the OFI and would stay there again. First, those who stay there should understand that this hotel is very old and historic. This means that you WILL hear people moving about in the hallways and above you. This should be expected, given the older construction. The Inn itself is beautiful and definitely a site to... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. We knew that it was spartan before we arrived, so we weren't disappointed. I guess you just have to make your own entertainment here! There is an adorable bathroom with tiles of animals on the walls, and a little bear sculpture of soap in between the nice toiletries. The bed was comfortable, they... More

You have to appreciate the history and location of the building. Of course rooms built almost 100 years ago do not meet today's standards. We had a West Wing standard room. It was small so only double beds were possible, but the beds were quite comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than expected with a good tub/shower combo. The towels were... More
