“Rustic and Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We stayed in one with a single bed and no bathroom. The bathrooms and shower were not far away, and each time we used them, they were exceptionally clean. My daughter thought she was going to die not having TV, but we got a deck of cards and had a great time playing all evening, as the weather did not cooperate for roaming around outside. The location is great for wildlife viewing. We were able to walk to the end of the drive and see a black bear in a field across the road. The cabin was clean and tidy. There is a wood stove for heat and a fan for cooling. All in all, I would stay again.

I was not sure what to expect before we arrived but I certainly am glad we stayed here for our 3 day trip to Yellowstone.We had a spacious cabin with 2 double beds. It was basic as expected and clean.The communal toilet block was modern and well maintained. The restaurant at Roosevelt was excellent and good value. We visited other areas in Yellowstone and this was by far the nicest. The other places such as Canyon are too touristy. I would definitely stop here again.

The Roosevelt Lodge is in a great location to visit the Lamar Valley. However, it is worth the money to upgrade the room. Otherwise, you will have a shared bathroom and a wood stove for a heater (which you will need, even in summer). Our stove stopped burning in the middle of the night, and my partner had to go out in the cold and dark to get more wood and then spend a while getting the fire started again. While I crazily found this experience to have some rustic charm, I think we just should have just paid a little more for a nicer room. That said, the restaurant in the lodge was good, and you can't beat the location for the Lamar Valley.

A recent bad experience at a Custer State Park lodge in South Dakota reminded me that we should give Roosevelt Lodge Cabins some big love for the three times we've stayed there. Can't rave enough about these cozy 1920s cabins -- full of history, charm and simplicity, and a tremendous value. What else do you need but a solid bed, table, woodburning stove and a few hooks on which to hang your stuff? The shared bathrooms are always clean and uncrowded, the dining room has great food (we always tip our hat to the noble TR's photo over the desk when entering, snickering slightly at the elk antlers some wag placed right above it), and the international staff is always wonderful. Roosevelt's peaceful evening porch sitting, a staple of good lodge life, is outstanding. There are several great trails nearby; some of our favorites are the Yellowstone Picnic Area Trail, which has outstanding river and meadow views, and the Lost Lake Trail beginning right behind the lodge. This is our favorite area in the park, much less crowded than Old Faithful, Canyon or Lake, and we love the proximity to the Lamar Valley and its wonderful early-morning and evening wildlife. You'll go to sleep to the sound of crickets and coyotes and wake to the lovely chirping of birds. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed here on July 2nd after a terrible stay at Canyon.We expected basic and it was but comfortable,bu we found the cabin dirtyit had not been cleaned with even dirty towels in the cabin when we checked in,again we have stayed in many NP accomodation over the years and only look for a dry ,clean place to sleep at night not much to ask you would think but Yellowstone lets itself down big time,come on Yellowstone get your act together,the park is world class,a must see in your lifetime but the accomodation is terrible

Our cabin was clean and I loved the Western decor. I loved that we were able to park right outside our cabin door and that we didn't share walls with anyone. The cabins at Canyon Village do share part of a wall. Our cabin was within walking distance of the restaurant, general store and pay phone which was convenient as my cell phone did not work here. This part of the park is less congested so it's much quieter; we even opened our cabin windows at night to let the cool breeze in.

We enjoyed our 2-night stay in the Roosevelt Lodge Cabins. We had a unit with 3 double beds--our beds were comfy and we liked the cold evenings for sleeping. It was super quiet in the evenings--some noise in the morning, but we wanted early starts anyway. What I really like was the price. For about $80 (with tax), the room was affordable for a NP. Compared to North Rim of the GC that was $180 (it had a bathroom in the cabin, but way less comfy), it was a good deal. If we return to Yellowstone, would definitely stay here again.
