“Good location for Old Faithful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Cabins are clean and within 200 yeards walking distance of Old Faithful. There are some good places to eat here and recommend the snow Lodge grille as the best variety and price for families to eat in the immediate area. The cabins can be a bit noisy depending on your neighbors (early car doors and noisy talking late at night, but the cabins were spotless and clean with good water pressure and showers. Your really just looking for a place to sleep anyway.

“Cabin Stay-Not restaurant review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We spent one night at one of the Old Faithful Lodge Cabins on our trip through Yellowstone with our grandson. They are very small and for the most part not free-standing cabins but 2 or 4 units hooked together in one building. It was clean and had a double bed and a twin bed with a very small bathroom. Sink is in the bedroom area. Considering that we spent little time in it except for sleeping, it didn't matter and the price was reasonable, given the costs within the parks. They are located at the end of the Old Faithful geyser boardwalk and where the trail goes up to the over-look of the geyser basin. On our way back down from an evening walk up to the over-look, we saw a bull elk near the trail who was very cooperative for pictures. A bison was rolling in the dirt near the cabins as we returned to our cabin area. We ate breakfast and dinner at the Old Faithful Inn so didn't have any experience with other facilities at the lodge.

“Beautiful old lodge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The food was good - except the girl making sandwiches was just going through the motion and gave me a soggy vegie sub, dripping with liquid from the steamed veggies. Great! Otherwise, the meatloaf and chicken plates were great. We sat in the huge beautiful lounge in front of the huge window and watched the Old Faithful erupt once again.

“Not the Hilton, but full of charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you are looking for a 4-star place to stay keep looking....BUT if you are looking for charm, and good value for your money....you've struck gold with this one. You will get to use words like rustic charm, and pioneer spirit when you tell your friends about this find, and tell them about it, you will! The only draw back was there's no cell service or internet BUT the Xanterra company has internet service available at the lodge for 5 dollars per hour......I'd rather watch some geysers! :D Had breakfast at the OF Inn.... Since its next to impossible to get dinner reservations here. We had breakfast! The wait staff greeted my husband with a cute ditty to the tune of Home on the Range....DELIGHTFUL. The nite before we had dinner at the OF Snowlodge restaurant. We arrived at the last minute and closed the placed down...but the staff didn't rush us at all. Had a sausage platter appetizer made with elk, bison and pheasant. YUMMO! Worth every penny!

“Not a bad price; not great quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The view from the dining room is wonderful as you can watch Old Faithful. The food is not high-priced for a park facility, but you get what you pay for. I had a "small plate" of turkey, potatoes, dressing, vegetable, roll and cranberry sauce. The turkey was a pressed roll and the rest of the food was not very flavorful. It was filling, however.
