We stayed in a cabin which slept 4 and had its own bathroom. It was spacious enough for our needs as we spent most of our time outdoors seeing the sights, some of which were in walking distance. Restaurant and gift shop facilities were more than adequate. I would definitely stay here again.

great location, but the feel is that of my old dorm. Very dated and shared bathrooms; no AC or TV. Bar across the street was important in making this tolerable. NO INTERNET OR WIFI: ONLY CELL COVERAGE IS VERIZON.

Room Tip: make sure you get a room with a private bathroom. Realize that there is no way to contact outside wo...

We stayed in the part of the hotel with shared toilet and shower facilities. It worked out fine for us. We never had to wait and the facilities were well maintained. It did give a sense of community to the stay, especially when you see little kids coming down the hallway in their p.j.s rubbing their eyes in the morning. The location was great since you had the option of heading out of the park to eat although we found the restaurant next door very pleasant with a wide variety of offerings. The desk personnel were always helpful. We had an especially pleasant exchange with the concierge desk where Paula made perfect recommendations for hiking. In addition, when we were there anyway the elk came for grazing on a nightly basis.

We stayed two nights at this national park facility with mixed opinions about quality. We split our family of five into two different lodgings. My wife and I stayed in the historic part of the hotel while the kids shared a cabin.

Our hotel room was large with two queen beds and a full bathroom including a shower stall. The sizable room was a welcome relief after cramped quarters at other national park hotels. Noise was the big negative. Noise caused by other kids who slammed their room doors coming-and-going which made a rather loud echoing sound in the wide hallways. Noise as well from hotel workers who struck up a conversation outside our room one morning at 5 am which triggered my wife to get out of bed to put a stop to it.

The cabins were rustic with three queens beds split between two rooms. There was no private bathroom here. The kids walked to a separate facility about 50 feet away. Our daughters didn't care for this at all. The most annoying cabin feature was a nasty smell. We didn't pinpoint it but we suspect it was coming from the area rugs which were soaking wet upon arrival.

Convenience is a primary reason to stay at this facility because the Mammoth Springs are next door. One attractive feature is the Map room which has a large U-S map made of various woods. A piano player performed nightly. The food was okay at best.

Room Tip: Book several months in advance if you want to stay in the historic hotel versus the cabins.

If this hotel were not in Yellowstone, I'm not sure people would stay here. Decor is industrial, rooms are sparsely furnished/decorated with basic bathroom facilities, and ventilation is bad. Onsite restaurant provides adequate sustenance. On the other side of the coin, it's in a beautiful setting, with the hot springs a walkable distance away, and the hotel is in good shape, with clean facilities. Certainly more comfortable than camping!

This hotel was built in 1937, and it was fun to experience the old fashioned style of lodging. From the push button light switches, to the wooden frame sash windows, to the old fashioned bath fixtures, the sense of history was everywhere. Our room, a queen with a bath, was simple, but everything was clean and comfortable. There is no tv, a tradition in national park lodging, but you could play cards in the large lounge or join in a sing-a-long with the piano player in the map room. Our room looked out towards the buildings of Fort Yellowstone, and the elk came and grazed under our window in the evening. Although it can be hard to get reservations, I appreciate the fact that, unlike hotels outside the park, the price doesn't increase as they fill up. Another old fashioned thing - treating customers fairly!

We stayed here just one night at the beginning of our trip. We had a room with two queen-sized beds and a shared bath. The bath down the hall was quite clean and I never ran into anyone else in the bathroom. There was a sink in the room, plus plenty of towels and toiletries.

I really enjoyed that the Lower Terraces were just a quick walk away. It was nice to have an area of the park to explore right from the hotel. There were quite a lot of people walking around the hot springs at the same time as us, but the further we got from the road, the less people there were. Many elk seem to make their homes in the area in/around Mammoth, plus we saw some bald eagles, pronghorn, and bighorn sheep on the cliffs along the road leading toward Gardiner. Plus, you have to make sure you see the Roosevelt Arch at the Northern entrance.

We did not eat on-site, so I can't comment on the restaurants -- but Gardiner is not far for a variety of eateries. Sheepeater Cliffs isn't far either, and this great picnic spot is home to some cool basalt columns and yellow-bellied marmots. The Bozeman airport is about two hours away, and this proximity is why we chose Mammoth for the first night of our trip. Mammoth is rather far from many of the sights in Yellowstone, so wouldn't really be an ideal base for more than a couple of days, but is nice for seeing the Northern section of the park.

P.S. We had some 3G/4G service using Verizon cellphones at Mammoth. I think there was a fee for wifi.
