Staying at the Snow Lodge has been on the wish list for a while, but I must say it was rather disappointing! You can't beat the location in the heart of the park and near Old Faithful. However, this hotel has no soul. There is nothing that really screams "national park lodge" about it. We thought that being "newer" it would be a preferable place to stay, but it still looked beat. The honey colored wood in rooms and common areas looks dated. The room was ok, but still seemed only somewhat clean. Recommendation #1: Don't get advice on what roads are closed (in the winter) by front desk staff. Go to the ranger station which is right across the street. Front desk staff was providing incorrect information. Recommendation #2: Make a reservation in advance to eat at the Old Faithful Inn which is a very short walk away. The food is better and you'll get some of that national park ambiance you won't get at the Snow Lodge. Recommendation #3: The best way to experience Yellowstone National Park is by staying in the park. There's no way around it - it is way larger than you think and it takes longer to get around in the park than you might think. Xanterra is the unfortunate fact of life in the equation. Stay at the Snow Lodge or other locations so you can spend more time enjoying the park and less time in the car driving to the West entrance or Gardiner. Collapse
Very good not great but the location deserves a Wow!

As one can imagine, the hotels in Yellowstone have a captive audience and so don't have to go the extra mile, can charge what they like and are able to serve barely adequate food. Old Faithful Snow Lodge does not, I am pleased to say except maybe the prices (even right at the end of the season $320 per night inclusive of tax) but they are forgiven thanks to the magnificence of Yellowstone . This review must start with recognition of one member of staff who was simply excellent - Kelce on reception was outstanding, so helpful, friendly and professional in helping us to make our stay so memorable....Thank you. The hotel is large and popular with coach tours so be wary of how busy this place must get at the height of the season. Our room (#2008) was practical, large, warm and comfortable with coffee making facilities, fridge and a decent if not spectacular bathroom. The hotel public areas are large and have plenty of easy chairs dotted around for a quiet chat, read or, what seemed most popular, just sitting in front of the roaring log fire. One complaint I would have is that internet access is $11 per day (provided by a third party). The bar is quite small but serves anything and everything including a very decent locally brewed Pale Ale. Being small and with limited bar-staff available, I can imagine it being a bit of a nightmare trying to get served when the hotel is full but for us, it was a lovely cosy spot when we were there right at the end of the summer season. The Obsidian Dining Room serves a selection of interesting dinner options including a very good elk and bison fettucine. Obviously pricey but generally well-cooked food and served by a great bunch of waiters, all of whom will spare you the time to tell you want to see and do in the park. Dinner reservations are not accepted and dinner is first come, first seated. Breakfast is also served in the restaurant and I would certainly recommend the Hiker's Special over the breakfast buffet; we had both and the former was definitely the best choice and better value. The hotel has a good gift shop as well. And, of course, Old Faithful is on the doorstep together with many of the other, less predictable geysers, access to the Old Faithful Inn from where tours of the park can be taken, and plenty of very pleasant and not-too-stressful walks. And the wildlife and scenery are just wonderful. Collapse

This lodge was one of the best places we stayed at during our Globus tour trip . Saw old Faithful blow just outside the front door. The Lodge was massive. and the buffet had lots to choose from. The people working there were all very friendly.

Stayed here on a trip in Sept. Great location literally in walking distance of Old Faithful and the OF Inn which is magnificent. Beautiful log and wood design in the public areas. Staff were nice and helpful. Signage to locate the rooms could have been better. Room was very spacious, clean, nice but average bath and western decor. The room was uncomfortably hot even with heat turned off. The single window which opened was too small to cool it even with outside temp in the 30's and there was no AC. Even though this is not peak season, restaurants were crowded; we were told by hostess to expect an hour wait (on a Monday night in late Sept). We were tired from a long day enjoying the magnificent park, elected not to wait the hour, and were directed to the only other eatery in the building, the Geyser Grill at the other end of the hotel. This was fairly expensive, had slow service, mediocre quality of the food, and we barely made it as they closed for the night around 7. This eatery would never survive without having a "captive" customer population in a relatively remote location. I would stay here again but next trip will look into alternatives also. I would have rated it a 3 except for the great location in the center of the park. Collapse

When making reservations, I went back and forth on where to stay. I planned our trip "late" (by Yellowstone standards) and much of the lodging was full (I was able to get lodging by checking every single day online). I knew I wanted to stay on the Old Faithful compound but was not sure which place. I ended up with Old Faithful Snow Lodge, and I was not disappointed. Yes, it was a little pricey, but it was worth it to stay right at Old Faithful. In addition to Old Faithful, there is a great trail a few miles long start to finish which allows you to see dozens of hot springs and geysers, all different from one another! Plus it is a good home base to see many other of the sights. As for the Old Faithful Snow Lodge itself, it is a newer lodge, and so perhaps does not have the charm of the Old Faithful Inn. However, the lobby is beautiful, the staff was very nice, and the room was very comfortable with modern fixtures in the bathroom, comfortable beds, plenty of room. No complaints. We did not eat in the restaurant there, but we did get box lunches to take on our day's outing and that was fine. Collapse
