Nice cabins... and only a few steps from Old Faithful!

The Old Faithful Lodge Cabins were just right for our summer visit to Yellowstone. We booked the cabin over 6 months out to ensure availability, as Yellowstone lodging can sell out quickly. So plan accordingly! The cabins can be rented with OR without a shower, and yes, the cabins without a shower are cheaper. For those going the cheaper option, there is a shower general facility available for all cabin renters, and there is also an ice machine available for cabin renters (free). Arrival: when you arrive in Yellowstone, go directly to the Old Faithful Lodge (not the Old Faithful Inn, they are different and at opposite ends of Old Faithful geyser). We found parking in front of the building, but if there isn't a parking spot, just wait a minute or two and another person checking in will leave, or use the check-in lane that goes right in front of the building, and have the spouse go in and check-in. When they get back, drive around back of the Lodge to your cabin. In my opinion, there is no need to search for a parking spot in the huge Yellowstone parking lot and walk 1/2 mile to check-in. Cabins: After checking in, we drove around and parked right beside our cabin. We had one double bed with a shower, toilet, and sink. Bedding and pillows are also supplied and you get a couple of bath towels and hand towels. When you check in, they will ask you if you want to be 'green', basically you don't want housekeeping to stop by and make up the room, and get clean towels and such. We asked if there was a discount since it was saving on the towels and staff time for 3 days. Nope, no savings at all, so it is up to you if you want to save them some money! The cabin also has a table and chair, and there is a small coat rack, shelf, and hangers behind the front door. I think the sink was an afterthought when they built the cabins, as they are right beside the front door! There is also an oscillating table fan and electric wall heater, and even an alarm clock and lamp on the nightstand. We put the fan on the table in the evening, opened the windows, and cooled off the room (there is no a/c). Do you want some coffee? Well, there is no coffee pot in the room, but you may consider bringing our own ;-) Cabin outlets: I can't tell you how many times we've been at hotels across this country and found no available outlets to charge our phones, cameras, laptops, comms.... Well, this cabin did have an open outlet right by the table! If you plug in the fan, that leaves you one outlet, and if you have several phones and such to charge up at night, you may want to do what I do and create an "electronicals" bag to take with you on vacations! I have a small zippered bag with a short extension that has three outlets on the end, so when you plug it into the wall, you now have 3 outlets, not one. I also have a quick charging 6 port usb charger that plugs into one of the outlets, and you still have two outlets available for anything else (laptop, coffee pot, etc). Wifi: we found no wifi. We asked and was told there was none. Our phones get occasional '3G' with our Sprint, and usually always had 2-3 bars of 1x. So, you can call friends, but will probably have difficulty checking email and posting your favorite picts online. My wife waited until late at night (fewer park users) to check her email. Food: we planned ahead, had a cooler, and stopped at a supermarket in Jackson on our way to Yellowstone. We had snacks, giant pack of water bottles, sandwich makings, and even some 'add hot water' quick meals (use the coffee pot you brought for the hot water). There is also a small grocery store/shopping mart in Old Faithful geyser area (walking distance). We got fresh fruit there for breakfast. Okay, so you're not into making your own meals? Well, no worries, there are restaurants and snack bars close by, and even a coffee and cookie/muffin spot right next to the Lodge check-in! For some restaurants, you may want to make a reservation! We decided to have dinner at the Old Faithful Inn on our last night. We payed $50 for dried out meatballs (no kidding... worst meatballs every), and elk sausage with mac 'n cheese, then you'll like it, we didn't. Shopping for something to take home? There are many places all around the Old Faithful area, and if you don't find what you are looking for, go to another shop as they don't all have the same items! Make sure you do the geyser walk that goes up past Old Faithful. It is a must for seeing lots of sputtering geysers! Don;t forget to download the geyser app too. The walk will take you a few hours as it a couple miles loop. Take water with you and there are no places to refill your bottles, but there is a one-holer park 'outhouse' at the far end. We love Yellowstone and the cabins. We will be back another year! Collapse
Busy parking lot

This was a hideous place to park. We were stuck in a traffic jam and decided to leave the car and take our luggage to the room. This area is extremely crowded. Very basic rooms, clean. Staff was friendly.

Old Faithful Lodge Surprisingly nice cabin in lovely quiet location on edge of forest. My husband and I booked our room a year in advance, and got the last room available in the Old Faithful area. We had never previously stayed at this the Old Faithful Lodge. The Lodge probably has normal hotel rooms in the main building, closer to the Old Faithful Geyser and surrounding amenities. We do not know about that. We stayed in a fourplex "cabin." This consisted of four motel rooms in one building. It was a lovely quiet location on the back row of the complex, away from the noise and crowds of highways, restaurants, shops, the visitor center, etc. Nobody walked through that area except the people actually staying there. It was next to the trailhead to the Mallard Creek trail to Mallard Lake. We walked fifty yards down the trail and saw the pretty creek. Our room was small, but it had its own bathroom. [Other cabins at the Old Faithful Lodge are very tiny and have a shared bathroom. For those cabins you would have to walk outside to a separate bathroom building. I would not have liked that.] Our one-room cabin had one double bed and one twin-sized bed. The furniture was pine, in good condition. There was pine paneling in the lower half of the walls; the upper half and ceiling was painted. All the plumbing fixtures were new. We had a desk with straight-backed chair and a good table lamp. Each bed had a good reading light mounted on the wall. There was enough hot water and water pressure in the shower. The carpeting and bedding looked relatively new. There were two extra blankets in the desk drawers. We visited for four nights in early August. We did not use the heater. There is no air conditioning/cooling and we did not miss it. Every night we left the windows open and ran the portable table fan. The cold night air chilled off the room. The room has no closet. Near the front door, mounted high on the wall, is a rack for hanging clothes, and about six wood hangers. The cabin had only one straight-backed chair; no upholstered, cushioned easy chairs and no sofa. We brought lawn chairs with us, so we brought them inside and sat in them. The outside of our cabin was made of weathered wood paneling. These are not log cabins. The cabin had no WIFI. It is hard to locate WIFI in the Old Faithful area. Perhaps you can find WIFI in the actual hotel rooms at Old Faithful Lodge, Old Faithful Inn, or the Snow Lodge. (All these accommodations are operated by Xanterra Resorts.) Our room had no refrigerator or coffee pot. We brought an ice chest and our own coffee pot. Yellowstone National Park has poor cell phone coverage. In the area around the various lodges and visitor centers, our Verizon cellular coverage generally worked slowly. We could get email, but if we went to the internet, the page might not load, or would take forever to load. For example, I could read the first 10 entries on my Facebook newsfeed, but the remainder would not load. We have had the same problem in Grand Teton NP. A cell phone booster helps. We ate no meals at the Old Faithful Lodge. It offers a cafeteria and a snack bar offering muffins, etc. We wanted higher quality, more expensive food. Based on past experience visiting Yellowstone, we knew you could get a good meal at the Snow Lodge Obsidian Dining Room. We ate two dinners there, and one breakfast. We had two breakfasts at the Old Faithful Inn dining room. (It is very hard to get a dinner reservation at the Old Faithful Inn, which books up fast.) We enjoyed having drinks at the Bear Pit Bar at the Old Faithful Inn, where we had dinner once. The Bear Pit Bar has big windows for people-watching. We enjoyed the vintage decor and ambiance at the Bar Pit. The bar at the Snow Lodge is smaller and has no windows. The Snow Lodge is a fairly new hotel and is open in the winter. The Old Faithful Inn closes in the winter. I do not know if the Old Faithful Lodge stays open. I doubt the cabins at the Old Faithful Lodge are open in the snowy winter. The lobby of the Old Faithful Lodge has some big windows that offer a great view of the erupting Old Faithful Geyser. The lobby is not large, but it offers some comfortable easy chairs. We did not spend any time there, but it looked nice. The common areas and lobby of the Old Faithful Inn are constantly mobbed with tourists, because the building is so unique and beautiful. The Old Faithful Lodge and Snow Lodge have quieter lobbies. There are also snackbar, deli and ice cream restaurants in the Old Faithful area. Delaware North operates two small stores in the Old Faithful area, in case you want to buy snacks or other food. There is at least one gas station in the Old Faithful area. When checking into the Old Faithful Lodge, be aware of the provisions of their "Green" policy. If you sign up, no maid will enter your room to empty the trash can or do anything else. We did not sign up for the Green policy, because we wanted the trash cans emptied. We left a note in a very prominent place telling the maid what cleaning to do, and what to skip. We saw no need for new towels everyday. Collapse

Old Faithful Cabins are a great location for your trip. You will see Old Faithful erupt numerous times at different times of day, which is awesome because depending where the sun is it looks different.. The boardwalk trail is well worth it especially at sunrise when it is quiet. Cabins are tight. We rented one with a bathroom which I recommend. Very clean and staff extremely courteous and helpful. You can do laundry at The Snow Lodge which is within walking distance. The best part is because you are in the park you a can avoid peak times of-visitation to major attractions. Would stay there again Collapse
Location is excellent, Cabin was ok.

Its all about the location. do the smart thing stay inside the national park if you can. 4 days/3 nights visting Yellowstone we felt it was essential to stay inside the national park to make the most of our visit - and in hindsight that was absolutely the right decision The Old faithful 'complex' surrounding the geyser is large, and the old faithful lodge cabins are at one end of the semi circle. The actual cabins are ok at best - they are small, cramped, tired, very small bathroom and rather disappointing. Out of cabins in Grand Canyon/Bryce and Mammoth on this trip this was definitely the most dissappointing - But NOT to the point where we regretted choosing staying in the park But as the best balance between OF location, price and type of room type, the cabins were definitely the right choice - just manage and lower your expectations of the actual room. Parking was plentiful at the actual cabins. Collapse
