Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel & Cabins

Reviewed June 4, 2011

We stayed one night in one of the frontier cabins at Mammoth Hot Springs. It was a very simple room with 2 double beds, 2 chairs, sink, hair dryer, toilet and shower. It was well kept and nicely maintained, quite clean and surprisingly comfy. Probably the best night's sleep I've had while on vacation. The cabin had a lighted front porch with 2 chairs. There was an abundance of elk and gophers on the grounds. We ate at the main dining room for breakfast and dinner and the meals were very good. There's a grocery store and another diner on the grounds too. WIthin walking distance are the Hot Springs which are quite a sight to see, however they smell like sulfur.

An hour west is Lamar valley which is home to lots of area wildlife.

Room Tip: Plan ahead, its booked far in advance.

we stayed in an unattached cabin, since i'd read reviews about how you can hear people snoring in the attached cabins. we paid $130 per night during off season. it was clean, accessible, but so is gardiner, and gardiner has more eccentricity, charm & more than likely, lower rates. i found the whole xanterra (parent company) much like disney- all the gift shops, food, etc was just carbon-copy duplication. the food was bland & unpalatable, and $12 per person for breakfast buffet which didn't have much to chose from, and like all their other food, not delicious. i felt like someone on a conveyor belt-- one in-- one out. NEXT!! if you are worried about actually being IN the park, and being able to see wildlife-- don't worry- it's the time of year you visit, not where you stay. there are TONS of wildlife, everywhere you look. :D

Room Tip: request an unattached cabin, with bathroom

Mammoth was built in 1937 and it shows in some ways. The hotel is loud, you can hear guests above and as they walk down the hall. Many rooms do not have a private bath. I did not stay in the cabins and know nothing about them.

The building is historic with photographs of old Yellowstone scenes on the walls.

The room we had was 330. It was a corner room and was very spacious. We were told the third floor is usually warm and because we had a corner room we were able to get the temperature down. The hall was very warm the entire stay.

The area around Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel can be very congested and parking can be a pain during much of the summer. Elk frequent the area and tie up traffic for extended periods. Very nice unless you need to get somewhere.

The map room is worth a visit. Look at the map and read the descriptions.

Overall, Mammoth is a nice place to stay if you want to be in this part of the park.

Mammoth is a great location for visiting the Lamar Valley

My husband and I stayed two nights (May 18th and 19th) in a cabin at Mammoth Hot Springs. Our cabin was clean, quiet, and spacious. In fact, it was much bigger than we had expected. In my opinion, you simply cannot beat the location! We wanted to stay in various locations inside YNP, and are happy that we did. From our cabin, it was a quick walk to the travertine terraces of Mammoth (spectacular), and the Beaver Ponds Trail was right behind the cabin. The gift shop is nice, and we made a few purchases. The staff were very pleasant - this early in the season, they were still ironing out the kinks with computers/printers and training new employees. For these reasons, check-in was slower than one might expect, but we knew to expect this across YNP in mid-May, and it did not phase us at all. All employees are so nice - always asking about your stay, what wildlife you've seen, and making recommendations on where wildlife had recently been spotted. I cannot speak to the hotel rooms, but I highly recommend the cabins. Ours was not connected, so this probably aided in the quiet and we had great night's sleep. It is a nice location with charming post office, visitor's center, and easy access to Gardiner, MT. The food in the dining room was just fine - nothing fancy, but good.

The elk and bison relaxing around Mammoth Hotel was a real treat too! I would definitely reserve a cabin at Mammoth again!

Well, this is where you have to stay if visiting the Canyon area. Very 1960's feeling and we had bad luck with food. Didn't really love any of the food in YS, but Canyon was my least favorite. Tried cafeteria and dining room. Cafeteria was filled with Asian tourists who piled up the unhealthy American junk food. Not a good value if you want healthy food, but the only option for lunch. Had very bad buffalo quesadillas for dinner-mushy and flavorless.

Room was comfortable and spacious. Modern-style clusered cabins (pods). Be warned, it was August and it cold. The canyon can be chilly. We needed hats and light gloves. It was worth it to endure the beautiful sight of the Grand Canyon of the YS. Saw herds of elk and heard bugling, which was cool, saw moose and a grizzly climbing a hill. Did Mary Mountain Trail, which was very flat and open- we didn't have time to make it to the falls, which we understand made the flatlands worthwhile.

We stayed at the cabins in Mammoth Springs, and it was great. They were spotlessly clean and comfortable. Also within walking distance of everything. We would highly recommend!!

We did the Trail of the Wolf tour with Xanterra, staying at Mammoth two nights. Both nights were pleasant, but it was obvious, especially when compared to the Old Faithful Snow Lodge, the hotel is in dire need of updating. The beds were small (full/double), but relatively comfortable. The steam radiators in the room did the job, but were a bit noisy (no way to avoid that with that technology). The bathrooms were adequate at best. One room we stayed in had a small shower only. The other had a claw foot tub retrofitted with a shower.

There is high-speed Internet available, but only in the resturant.

The staff was nice and cordial. The only complaint staff-wise was the long wait on luggage being transferred back from Old Faithful... it took them 11 hours to get the bags from Old Faithful.

The food at the dining room was good and reasonably priced, but it is the only option and got old after a couple of days. In particular, the offerings using local game meat were quite good. The service at the resturant was good.
