“Overpriced and No A/C”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed here in June. It was 80 degrees in the room and there was no A/C and no TV. The rooms were large, clean and nice otherwise. We had to sleep w/ the windows open because there was no A/C. We heard horns, car alarms, traffic and people talking outside all night. The Elk on the front lawn were kind of cool. For $150 a night I expected to have A/C. Should have read the fine print I guess.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for a week in early May 2013. It's in a good location and it wasn't unusual to see wild animals wandering through the grounds as if they owned the place (they probably thought they did)!
Hotel quality was good (nice big room and bathroom) but there were numerous minor niggles and, because of these, I'm giving a rating of only three stars.
Firstly, even before our check-in was complete, the clerk asked if we would like to contribute $2 per day to the Yellowstone Park upkeep. We didn't appreciate being put under such pressure right at the start of our stay and thus declined. Anyway, we had already paid a Park entrance fee and later spent a fair amount of money in the gift shop, so they made enough out of us!
Other niggles? Yes, well, I understand they want to maintain the culture of the park but not having TVs and WiFi in the rooms smells of pure meanness in this day and age! We tried to use the WiFi in the lounge (for which you have to pay) but it wouldn't accept my credit card for some unknown reason. When I complained about this at the desk I was brusquely told the WiFi was provided by another company and was nothing to do with the hotel. Definitely NOT the response I was hoping for!
The built-in "wardrobe" in the room was a joke, being about 6" deep and thus virtually useless! The heating was on in our room when we arrived... and it was stifling! We turned the radiators off but, as they were the old cast iron type, they took ages to cool down. We eventually managed to open one of the windows in our room (the other two were painted in and stuck closed solid) but, even so, our first night was uncomfortably hot.
The shower, although and quaint antique looking, was rather tricky to use. Getting the right baalance between hot and cold water wasn't easy and we would have preferred something a bit more modern.
That's it - a decent though somewhat dated hotel, spoiled by a few irritations!

We stayed in one of the cabins and, while a little small, it was bright and pretty clean. It seemed much more so after we stayed in one of the Old Faithful Lodge Cabins the next night. Good value is not to be found here ($160 per night for a pretty small space). There are elk that stay right around the hotel and it's a fun hike to the hot springs. The whole park is stingy about small things - you must pay for ice even if it's only for your water bottle. The gift store was small but had a nice selection and the prices were not horrible.

We liked our little Frontier cabin. It was clean, you can park right next to your cabin, you have a porch and chairs, walking distance to eat, get coffee, etc. Quiet (as long as your neighbors are quiet). The electric heater in the wall was hard to regulate, we got cold and then too warm at night. Our room had a sink area in the room, and a small toilet and shower in a small separate room. There is a little desk, someone said there was no table, but there is a desk with drawers. The windows open.

Room Tip: Some cabins are singles and some are duplexes where you share a wall with the neighboring cabin.

We stayed in a Frontier Cabin. It was very small. It was clean and quiet and had a comfortable bed. But it was so small there was no place to put things. No table, shelf, counter, drawers...nothing. It was fine for one night, but I would want a bigger room if I was staying longer. The staff was great!

I wouldn't consider the hotel nice but it's better than staying in a small cabin. The hotel has no radio,TV or Air conditioner which is a bit uncomfortable. THey have faulty heaters. When I went inside my room the heater was broken and we had someone come and fix it. It took a few hours for it to be fully operational. However when my father turned on the heater, the heater made the entire room extremely hot. The room was so hot my cheeks turned red, we had to turn on a fan and I constantly had to drink cold water every 10-15 minutes. Despite these disadvantages the hotel itself is alright. They also have a interesting gift shop. A 9:00 p.m. I saw a large female deer standing right next the hotel and it was 30 feet away from our room! Honestly I wouldn't mind staying here one more time. :)

Was surprised how nice this place was. The hotel portion was nice, I stayed in one of the cabins are really enjoyed it. The cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. There were a few options for lunch/dinner and having the lounge area was a fun experience.
