There's not to much that hasn't been said by persons who have visited Old Faithful Inn. The atmosphere is just wonderful. In staying overnight if, like us, we had a room without a bath, it's not so bad. The shared bath is just like camping and the restroom is very, very clean and modern. The bedroom in the old part are neat with their little washing-up sink and comfy bed. Be warned though, the walls are VERY thin. Our seven year old got us a knock on the wall at 10:00 PM. Another in our party was in a room next to the "restrooms". Not a good idea if possible. The over all experience of staying in the old Inn was worth every discomfort. This is the second time we have stayed here. Sitting in the rockers, on all three floors, listening to the piano player, watching the fire. Man, I wish I was back there now!

Room Tip: Front rooms in the Old Inn are next to Tour Bus unloading. Noisy

Our first-ever visit to Yellowstone could not have been more perfect! This lodge is a MUST-SEE! Our room had a private bath and was very nice for a couple nights stay. We didn't go to Park planning to hang out in our room so based on other reviews, I wasn't expecting a five-star room at this price (the least expensive room they offered). However, we were very pleasantly surprised and pleased. And, the lobby is AMAZING - this is where you hang out! Enjoyed pianist and cello while we sat around fire. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had the Prime Rib Buffet: good not great; will probably order dinner off menu next time. Breakfast buffet was better and worth the $. And of course, we were convenient to wait for Old Faithful to blow! HIGHLY recommend you at least visit but stay here if you can!

Room Tip: Ask for room on lobby floor or higher - numbered 2thousandplus. First floor is actually partially underground!

We stayed here one night during our week long trip to GTNP and YNP the last week of Sept. 2011. We were very limited in choices in YNP since many of the hotels/inns had closed the week before. The inn is beautiful and historic inside. It was very relaxing to sit in a chair on one of the upper levels and people watch below and take in the beautiful structure and logs. Our room faced Old Faithful but we could not see it since we were on the ground floor and bushes blocked the view. The room was a different story. We had a 1Q shared bathroom which was TINY. We barely had room for our luggage and walk around. Yes it was historic but one night was enough. The room was very clean and bed was comfortable. We thought 'shared bathroom' was between two rooms....not the entire wing of the hotel. Unfortunately we were on the main floor just off the registration area which meant our bathroom was shared by everyone who visited the hotel and not just paying guests. The shower was just across from our room. It was tiny, dark and stuffy after a shower (no ventilation). There was 1 hook to hang your clothes but no bench or chair to put things. I had not packed shower shoes so it was an experience taking a shower in socks. Wish I had asked more questions about the 'sharing' b/c it is not fun to put on a bathrobe and walk the halls in the middle of the night just to go to the bathroom. Did not eat in restaurants due to prices and having to make reservations. Found the lodge cafeteria nearby a better choice for eating when you want and choices and price.

Room Tip: Wish I had know to ask more questions about the rooms. Evidently that makes a huge difference. But I still don't like having to leave the room in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

This was our first stay here--the last night before they closed for the season (October 2011). We have lived in Bozeman, MT for 35 years but we never stayed there. We got a special deal, at slightly more than $200, from Xanterra. http://www.yellowstonenationalparklodges.com/
The room was large and nice, and the hotel is legendary for its rustic timber construction. Forget about TV and internet connections--you don't need them! The coffee maker was great, and the staff were very good.
Of course, the Old Faithful geyser was a short walk away. However, up on the hill--about a mile round-trip walk from the inn--are many great geysers and other features that you do not want to miss. As we were walking, one of them spouted.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking Old Faithful

We stayed here for our 34th anniversary for 2 nights Sept 29-Oct. 1, 2011. My husband wanted to stay in a historic National Park Lodge, and Old Faithful Inn fit the requirements. It was build in 1904 originally, and has undergone renovations. But do not think this is a modern up to date place. You go there for the nostalgia. We had a 2nd floor Eastwing geyser view room (2026). We were told on check-in that they do not guarantee an actually unobstructed view due to the trees growing up around the hotel. They do not cut branches. However, we got lucky and actually did see Old Fathful erupt from our window. The East wing is a more modern addtition than the Old House as I require a bathroom in the room! It had a shower, sink, toilet. Bare bones, no other modern ammenities other than soap. The wooden floors squeeked, and we heard the water running from neighbors using toilets/showers. We were able to prop a coffee mug under the window to keep it open a little for fresh air. The Eastwing had stair access nearest our room, but the elevator was down the hall and in a hallway not marked til you got there. I had to ask where it was. Not far from our room was a door leading to the Old House which was separated by a nice connector with a bench, table and a good view of Old Faithful between the trees. Unfortunately, a scaffold was put up for repairs which blocked this view the morning of departure. But they have to still carry on guests or not. It closed for the season the following weekend (9th) and checkout is at 11AM. There was a dining room on the first floor as well as a Deli (sandwiches, ice cream) and Gift Shop. The lobby is grand, 3 floors of stairs, and a closed area leading to the "crow's nest" where orchestras played in days past. A huge stone fireplace and a large clock (which was not working) was the place for tours to meet. And an artist was there during designated times painting an new subject (wolf standing next to Chromatic or Grand Prismatic Spring) as you watched. We were glad we did this (once). The room itself was pretty barebones, and small. My husband loved the ambieance. And that is what you are really paying for.

Room Tip: Whether you want/need a bathroom in your room is the first choice you need to make, as well as how many people are to sleep in the room. Location: Old House, Westwing or Eastwing.
