If you miss this total immersion in Yellowstone, you might as well stay home. From the massive log construction, the multi-story fireplace, the namesake geyser in front to the buffalo in the parking lot this is the ultimate park experience. Of course you have to deal with the spartan rooms -- clean and simple-- with no modern amenities; and you... More

What a great location for a hotel--right in the heart of the hot springs/geysers. Beautiful interior and a few eateries and shops conveniently inside. The food at the main restaurant was decent. We liked the bison steak & burger & moose tracks ice cream.

We stayed here in August of 2014 for 2 nights while exploring the park. We were in the 'newer' part of the lodge and the rooms are very basic. No A/C, and no TV, etc. Rooms don't have much to offer except a clean shower and a bed but after a couple of days of hiking all over the park... More

Yes, the hotel is old, has no TV or internet. You cannot beat the awe of sitting on the second floor balcony and watching Old Faithful. The viewing area around the geyser may get you closer, but the crowds detract from the experience. We had breakfast in the main dining room. It was good, but not speedy, but you are... More

Staying at Old Faithful Inn is an experience to be savored, not hurried. I will tell you what it's not. It's not for the person who has to have a television, a phone, consent buzz of man. If you can just catch your breath and let her, she will keep all your troubles at bay and wrap you in arms... More

I stayed in Old Faithful Inn at the end of September last year. I have been meaning to review it ever since. The challenge has been deciding what grade to give it, given that my head thinks it deserves 4 stars, and my heart thinks it deserves 5. My head was disappointed by the paper thin walls and the fact... More

Absolutely amazing hotel. So historical - we would wake up and stroll out to the geysers every morning. Highly recommend making a reservation at least 6 months in advance. The lobby is breathtaking, 6 stories of pure post and beam.

As I say in all of my reviews of accommodations in Yellowstone National Park, there are multiple lodging types at this location. That may explain the wide range of ratings for this location. This review is for a room with shared bath in the Old House (the original central section) of the Old Faithful Inn. Of all of the reviews... More

My husband and I stayed at the Old Faithful Inn for 3 days and nights. We were very pleased with the room and service. The Old Faithful is timed and is visible from Old Faithful Inn or you can walk close to the location. We enjoyed the restaurant and the variety of foods that they offer. We also took a... More

Wonderful time at this NPS lodge. Great people, good food, awesome tours. Everyone should try to see this incredible park in winter. Staff with NPS and vendors are knowledgeable and very passionate about this park, its wildlife, history and ecology. You absolutely have to get the Belgian hot chocolate at the restaurant. Hands down best I have ever had.
