Great location; right in the heart of Yellowstone. It was clean, but the tiniest room. I don't know how four people could have possibly slept there. There were two FULL beds in the room, no closet, just hooks on the wall. A miniature table with a coffee pot that just kept getting the way. And the shower was a 3x3 stall. Whenever the bathroom light was on, and it had to be because it had no natural light, a very loud fan went on. The internet, which had to be paid for, was lousy at night, because it was busy. The morning was better. But, location, location, location.

Room Tip: There are stairs for Lodge C unless you walk a long way on the handicap "ramps." If you c...

We had two nights in Yellowstone in Grant Village. The accommodation is basic but better than I expected. The room was bigger than I thought it would be and the beds were comfortable and the bathroom facilities clean. Staying in the park limits your accommodation choices but was worth it. Grant Village has a nice restaurant where we had breakfast and dinner. Good location for visiting the sites.

Very small room with tiny bathroom, tinier shower. No staff available to address any issues or answer questions. No luggage cart. The handicapped parking was located far from the main entrance. Overnight snow not removed from any walks other than immediate entry way (i.e., 8 feet from door) making unsafe walking condition for person using a cane. Found prior occupant's medications on floor, obviously not vacuumed well. Exorbitant price for the privilege of staying within the park. $175/night implies a better room, especially a better bathroom! Ate in the dining room, totally unimpressed with food. "Prime" rib was not "Prime" and appeared to have been steamed and then kept hot. So tough could not cut it with a steak knife. Will not use these facilities on our next trip.

Uninspiring modern accommodation blocks in an accessible location for the delights of Yellowstone. Rooms large quiet and beds comfortable, efficient staff although difficult to access contact with the people that matter, unusual that the staff are not helpful in a country of "your welcome". Plenty of parking although the restaurant is a good walk away.

We stayed here during our last US trip for three nights. You must realize that this hotel is not of the kind of experience you'll get at the Old Faithful Lodge, but it is certainly worth staying here. During my earlier visits to this park we stayed at Cody, and that means you have to travel 2 times 1,5 hours to and from the park. These hours you can better spend in the park. The rooms are small but comfortable and there is WiFi, so you might not miss the TV:-)
I recommend to make dinner reservations as the restaurant is quickly booked and this way you have the best choices of dinner-times.

The previous reviewers make some interesting points....BUT..Yellowstone is not about trendy hotels with internet, mobile signals and interior design awards..Grant village was built to blend in with the scenery and to allow ever increasing numbers of people stay within the park. That said, we have just stayed at Grant, Mammoth and Old Faithful and Grant certainly don't intend to spoil you...they come 3rd for all forms of customer service...but there was a weather report available. Good to have tea and coffee in the room unlike the others..take a travel kettle...We ate in the Dining Room...great staff and food was good ( fabulous steaks) bearing in mind we were miles from anywhere in a park! We were told so many times how tired the staff were as the season was ending...but it was our trip of a lifetime and we weren't paying end of season prices!!

We went to Yellowstone this month and were very disappointed with the accommodations on the park; both Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We highly recommend staying off the park and driving in and the reasons include: 1) it's much cheaper to stay off the park; 2) you have more options outside the park; and 3) the hotels and restaurants outside the park are much more accommodating and thankful for your business.
What we learned from our trip is that Yellowstone is all contracted out to a company called Xanterra, so they manage all of the lodges, restaurants, etc within the park - so there is zero competition. The Grand Teton Lodge Company manages everything on the Grand Teton National Park. That said, there is no competition for business and therefore the prices are VERY high for what you get.
Also, we decided to go in mid-September to avoid large crowds and children; we are in our 30's and have no kids. That said, we arrived to find out that most restaurants, gift shops, etc. are closed. It would have been nice to have been informed of this prior to our visit - then maybe we could have adjusted our plans. However, once there, you can't cancel your reservations without losing your money - so essentially they trap you there. We had one restaurant open by us and if we wanted something else, we had to drive at least 21 miles.
Lastly, the staff is very ungrateful. When you arrive, there is no friendly greeting - it's just all business to them. When you leave, you hand it the keys and don't even get a "thanks for staying with us, hope to see you again", instead, you get a hand out to grab the keys. Thanks but no thanks. We highly recommend that you stay outside the park - we really enjoyed Gardiner, MT and West Yellowstone, MT!
