We stayed for one night with our family of 4 in a superior room- which means 2 queen beds overlooking Old Faithful. First of all, making a reservation is very difficult if not done very far in advance. However, if you keep calling the reservation number, you may get in. We got our room one week before our trip! Second,... More

When you book, be sure to ask for a room in the renovated section. The rooms are larger. Prepare for no tv or radio and spotty cell service. We had downloaded several shows to our ipad. There's not much to do at night. Crowds gather early for Old Faithful. The clock in the lobby gives approx time of next eruption.... More

If you want to stay here, and I highly suggest you do if you are visiting, you must make your reservations a YEAR in advance, but you will not regret it. This place is simply gorgeous and has all the ambiance of what you are hoping for. The great room alone is worth the stay. There is a deck right... More

We stayed 3 nights at the inn and what a mesmerizing building it is. The main lobby area has access to 3 floors, each with 3 sides giving a different aspect of the fantastic timber structure with the great fireplace at the center. They do have coaches turn up now and again, it's obviously on the tourist trail, but I... More

We thought we were lucky getting reservations at Old Faithful Inn. The outside and lobby are magnificent. The front desk girl was very friendly and helpful. The bell person was great. Telling us if we had a parking spot we liked to not move our car he would come out to the car to get our luggage and he did.... More

We stayed in a newer room with 2 queen beds and bath room. Fan in room if needed along with a Kurig. Loved going to deck on 2 nd floor in the evening playing cards and watching old faithful while someone was playing piano, then later another person played the violin. The Inn is just beautiful! Less people walking around... More

Old charm does not go away. Bit aged but the beauty of the area makes everything not only bearable but enjoyable. Just a walk through is in itself a treat. One could find more comfortable places to stay but they would not be old faithful. Don't enjoy it savour it.

What makes the Old Faithful Inn special is its location - right next to Old Faithful itself. You can watch the eruption from the hotel's main balcony. The lobby itself is large and beautiful with lots of activity - creating a fun and dynamic atmosphere. The rooms themselves are basic and remind you of the 1950's - no TV and... More

My favorite building on earth. Of which the "Wilderness Lodge" at Walt Disney World can only be called a paltry imitation. Opened in 1904, this was the start of the Rustic school of US architecture, or, "parkitecture." With its 76 foot high lobby of individually pieced, warped and twisted lodgepole, this structure is a fairytale creation of epic proportions. It... More

A lovely stay at the Old Faithful Inn! We stayed in the newer part that had private bathroom which was very nice. Now remember this is not your 5 star resort. It is rustic but very clean! We loved the feel of the old hotel. We would have even been happy with the cheap rooms with community baths! Definitely worth... More
