We stayed three nights at Grant, coming up from Jackson/GTNP. Our room and the hotel were perfectly clean and fine, plus we had a nice view of a strand of trees outside our window. No, it's not fancy, and to be honest, Grant wasn't our first choice of lodging but we couldn't get three nights in a row elsewhere. We walked to and ate at both restaurants on-site and were happy with our meals from each (good food with no waiting, even in July!).
Contrary to some opinions, I thought the location was great -- not too far from the Old Faithful area, or the Lake area -- with West Thumb Geyser Basin right there. The ride to the other areas is pretty anyway and gave us a chance to view more wildlife anyway! I wouldn't want to tour Lamar Valley or Mammoth from Grant, but for visiting the Southern part of the park, it was convenient.
I'd certainly stay at Grant again. Was this a five star hotel? No way. Could there be more charm in the buildings/rooms? Well, yes. Were we completely satisfied with our stay? Yup!
P.S. On a separate note -- on the afternoon we drove up from Jackson, there was a tour bus accident on the only road from GTNP into Yellowstone. We wound up "stuck" in Colter Bay for several hours longer than expected. At one point we were able to call Grant and they knew about the accident and were they assured us that we would not be charged for the night in case we weren't able to get up there that night. The road was reopened around 9:15 pm, and we joined a caravan of cars headed north. By the time I got to Grant I was ready to give it five-stars just because I was so grateful we weren't spending the night in a parking lot at Colter Bay! ;-)
