My wife and I have an item on our bucket list to visit as many National parks and monuments as we can and are still able to travel. We were visiting yellowstone National Park and found that we needed a place to spend the night after seeing the park all day. My wife found Elephant head lodge in the AAA... More

We made a reservation request for this hotel for a one night stay in August. As we didn't get a confirmation, we cancelled the next day in the morning. We received a confirmation the same day we cancelled but in the evening. The hotel had charged the full amount of the deposit. After complaining by email, Debbie refunded part of... More

My husband and I originally booked lodging at the property next door, but due to a family emergency that lodge was partially closed, so we chose to move to the Elephant Head Lodge. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Elephant Head Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who... More

We visited Elephant Head during our trip to Yellowstone. Our cabin was clean and cozy...nothing fancy but we wanted the cabin experience. The restaurant food was good...but very pricey compared to other lodges in the area. The staff was very friendly and willing to do whatever they could to make our stay fun and enjoyable. There's no cell service, but... More

Really disappointed with this place. It looked good online, and it looks good when you drive up, but the cabins are not clean. Our cabin had dirt and dust from the floors to the windows to the counters and bathroom. A simple wipe down with a cleaner and rag would have corrected a lot of the issues, so it was... More

EHL is not your typical manicured, sterile, corporate vision of a nice place to stay. If you want that place, stay in the city. If you want beautiful scenery, warm, friendly people, then come stay at EHL. We've been there 3 times in the past 4 years and will keep going. The charm of the place, not to mention the... More

Shocked at the filth in Cabin #10 (The Rendezvous) at Elephant Head Lodge. I mentioned it to one of the employees who explained that there were only 2 housekeepers to clean all the cabins between 10am and 2pm, so a great job was NEVER done. (He also commented that the owner, Debbie, was often late with their paychecks, so I... More

There are mixed reviews on here but we had a very pleasant stay. We stayed in the Maverick cabin, which we found quaint and in fitting with what we expected from what is essentially wood cabins in the woods, some of which are a hundred years old. It was very clean, well-presented and had everything we needed for a one... More

OK, so remember that EHL is out in the country, 20 minutes down the highway from the closest gas station and cellphone coverage, and 45 minutes from the town of Cody. At almost $200/night, you're paying for the scenery and the sense of 'getting away from it all', and not for the amenities such as the rotary dial phone in... More

When we arrived, the grounds were thigh high in grass, even around picnic tables. When mgr. opened the door of this tiny tacky cabin I about gasped at what $200/nite had bought us! They had had a storm a couple of weeks before in which mud had covered the porch area, and the gravel driveway was in horrible need of... More
