The budget cabins originated as a tent village starting in 1913. They have no baths, forcing people to hike a distance to a communal toilet and shower house. No cooking is allowed in the cabins, but they have a tiny sink in them. Likely, the original developer, the Powell Camping Company, was a much better steward of the property than the current Xanterra. We found the carpeting filthy and the toilets marginal. You should also not be fooled by the descriptions of the lodge associated with the cabins. Unlike the Old Faithful Lodge, with a multi-story lobby for guests to enjoy, the lodge associated with the cabins has been converted to a cavernous cafeteria and shop system for those visiting the geyser to create maximum revenue. Gone is the sense of a nice lobby to lounge in when not in your cabin. I also did not like the 4:00 check in time and the early check out time. They don't let you enjoy the nearly $100 it takes to stay there. If you have your own transportation, it is better to find a room in West Yellowstone, outside the park, where prices are plenty high but at least you get a decent room for your investment. The only benefit to the cabins is the proximity to the geyser, but once you have seen the geyser, as I say, there are a lot of choices for lodging and food outside the park in West Yellowstone.

The cabins are Old Faithful are about as expensive as a normal hotel room anywhere else, but put it into the perspective of staying next to the world's most famous geyser. The small cabin provided me with a better night's sleep and a more fitting experience for our visit to Yellowstone, slept three people comfortably and didn't lack for amenities (some of the cabins do not come with showers, so take that into account when booking).

Small and more lighting needed

First of all, be sure to make a reservation for this and other in park accommodations from 13-16 months in advance. These cabins give you a location close to Old Faithful at a much reduced price from the Snow Lodge and Old Faithful Inn. But you get what you pay for.These cabins are very old and very very small. The shower is a BIG challenge as is the sink, that takes a long time to get hot water. The room is very small and hard to fit in all your travel gear. Outside it is very very dark at night so be sure to bring a flashlight if planning any after dark trips to the other buildings in the area. The cleaning crew was quite efficient and accommodating and maintenance was quick to repair a bad sink aerator. Collapse
Small, convenient, but I was short-sheeted!

We only spent one night here, but appreciated the close proximity to Old Faithful. Each cabin has a sink and the toilets and showers are nearby. The shower stalls were tiny even for me so I would think they would be uncomfortably small for most people. The sheets on the bed I slept in did not fully cover the mattress. (Where did they get sheets that don't fit a twin-size mattress? Did they shrink or were they crib sheets?) The place is inexpensive compared to the hotel, but not a good value compared to other cabins within Yellowstone National Park. Check-in and check-out at the front desk at the lodge was friendly and easy. Collapse

You can't get closer to Old Faithful and the geyser basin than the Old Faithful Lodge cabins. The Inn is dripping with history, the Snow Lodge is modern and pretty, but for the lowest cost per night and the smell of sulfur wafting through the air nothing can compete with the "cabin with no bathroom" experience. To stay at the most popular site in one of the most popular parks in the U.S. for less than a hundred dollars is a testament to the Park Service's commitment to maintain access to everyone, and to the concessionaire's ability to maintain their profit while still maintaining the facilities. That's not to say everything is perfect, but it's unfair to expect more from an 80-year old wooden cabin than what you get here. What you do get is half of a 2-unit building with a parking space along each side. At some point this system breaks down, as there are not 2 parking spaces for each building, but I have never had to go very far to find extra spaces around non-cabin buildings nearby. It's not a terribly long walk from any cabin to the bathroom and shower buildings (although I've never had to do it in the rain, which might change my opinion on that point). But to back up a bit, the low price comes with the proviso that you had better plan the year ahead and book the room accordingly. We had a 2 week vacation plan outlined, chose the dates for Yellowstone and Yosemite parks, and made those reservations before filling in the rest of our itinerary. Check in was fast and business-like, we found our cabin right away and unloaded the car. The room had an odor from wet carpet left behind by the previous guest, which I doubt the housekeeper had noticed earlier in the day. I turned on the portable fan and aimed it at the wet spot, we went out to visit a nearby geyser that we had missed on previous trips, and came back to find the carpet dry and the smell gone. Furnishings in the cabin were aged but maintained, the mattress was in good shape, there was plenty of light (something that has improved quite a bit over the past few years) and a couple outlets for chargers and the aforementioned fan. My one disappointment was that the porcelain sink (with both cold and cold running water) had lost quite a bit of its enamel and was quite overdue for replacement. Don't expect to miss having an air conditioner; even a warm day in Yellowstone quickly turns into a very cool night. If you are staying in your cabin in the midafternoon you are missing out on the reason to visit a national park. We took in the show (Old Faithful eruption), went to the visitor center to check out the evening program, toured the Old Faithful Lodge building, the Snow Lodge, and the Inn (don't miss seeing their lobby, even if you don't stay there), and headed back to the cabin for a cold supper, a visit to the very clean shower building, and to bed. There had been a lot of loud conversation coming from our neighbors earlier in the evening, but it stopped at a reasonable hour and nothing interrupted my sleep. There is a cafeteria in the Lodge, but if you aren't doing a light meal like we did, I suggest passing it by for dinner at one of the restaurants in the Inn or Snow Lodge- there's a variety of choices at all price points. The dining room at the Inn wit its awe-inspiring architecture (at least in part of it) probably makes up for the high prices, although the food by reputation is not noteworthy (I can't say from personal experience). For breakfast you have the option of a walk-up counter in the Lodge with some variety of choices of breakfast sandwiches and pastries or the aforementioned full-service restaurants in the nearby hotels. Stick around to watch Old Faithful one more time (get up before 7am and I can guarantee you will have it almost to yourself), and head out into the park to make more memories. Collapse
