We stayed in the lodge, not the cabins. Initially we were impressed by the check-in process and the cleanliness of the rooms on top of the convenience of being so close to Old Faithful and its surroundings. After a long day of hiking, we were ready to get some laundry done (conveniently located on the floor we were on) and relax before heading out to dinner, but soon realized this was impossible due to the intense thumping noises coming from upstairs. It sounded like someone was wearing lead shoes and stomping across their room, non-stop, for the better part of an hour. Then, the screaming started, along with the shouting to stop said screaming, followed by more thumping, for at least another full hour. We left for dinner hoping that the noises would relax a bit as the night wore on, but were wrong when we returned and it was still going on. We called down to the front desk and got a very apologetic voice on the other line saying she'd send security up. They did, and the noises stopped, so we were hopeful the folks upstairs got a talking to that this was not a lucha libre venue. When the security guard came by our room, however, he told us he heard nothing when he went by. Not a peep. Apparently they chose that moment to get a bite themselves, or see an Old Faithful eruption, or whatever else it is that noisy people do. He told us to consider it may be the building's old pipes (I'm not an idiot, sir), and then that "families do stay here, you know." Obviously families stay here. It's summer in Yellowstone. Thanks for the condescension. Most families don't turn their hotel rooms into a WWE venue. So we started getting ready for bed as we had more long hikes to go the following morning, when lo' and behold, here comes the stomping, the screaming, the pounding. By this time it was 10pm. This time I went upstairs myself to talk to these guests, and they were so loud in their room that they didn't hear my knocks. There was screaming to one another, pounding on furniture, foul language. I then called them on their room phone thanks to my handy dandy room directory. A kid answered and hung up when I asked to talk to a parent. More stomping, yelling, pounding. Security was a jerk so we really didn't think calling downstairs again would be helpful, so we hoped against all hope that the noises would stop and tried to sleep. 11pm. 11:30pm. I was losing it by this point, so called the front desk again. Same girl, same apology, same response...they would call security. This time, or perhaps they just went to bed, but finally a little after midnight the noises stopped...only to begin again at 5:30am. So the walls are thin, and the security guy's not the most sympathetic...and it's expensive. I would have given it a 3/5 despite it all because of convenience, but we stayed at the Canyon Lodge the following two nights and had a much more pleasant experience at a much lower cost, with similar convenience.

It was great to have a room in Old Faithful Village steps away from the historic Old Faithful Inn, but with MUCH bigger, more modern rooms. The room had all we needed, since we were there only at night as we were seeing all the sites during the day. Proximity to Old Faithful and all in the area was the best point! Collapse

The room in the Lodge was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Beds and pillows were comfortable. The hotel is pricey, but nothing inside the National Parks is cheap. I would have no qualms about booking a return visit other than wanting to be more accessible to a different part of the massive park. Highly recommend. Collapse

After staying in Mammoth we were not prepared for this huge and soulless place. It was like a cattle market outside. To be expected I suppose because of Old Faithful geyser. The room however, was large and clean but the view was rubbish. The Old Faithful was rather disappointing, there are MUCH better sights to see very near by. The area is great but the hotel was completely without character. The other lodge on the same sight looked gorgeous. Collapse

Traffic to get into Yellowstone is horrendous in the summer, and you don't want to spend half your day just getting in, right? Keep reading for some friendly advice. We booked a Western Cabin in June 2016 for our family of 5 vacation in July 2017. We got the LAST cabins available. Because of that, we had to stay in 2 different cabins - a regular one on the first night and an ADA cabin on the second night. Western Cabins have 2 queens, so we brought a cot for the 5th person. Nothing in Yellowstone has AC, so for a trip in July we were prepared to be warm. The cabins at least have windows on 2 sides, so with a fan they DO cool down at night. After about 10pm we were comfortable, and by morning we were using blankets. We were also prepared for this to be a CABIN. Maybe not as spotless or convenient as a hotel room. You're in the great outdoors, right? Our 2 cabins were actually fairly clean, save for the area just above the shower, which was filthy in both. We got clean pillows, sheets and blankets, a little fan, and nice shampoos and soaps. (one soap was a little bear, cool.) The ADA cabin's bathroom was quite large, and the other one was adequate. Plenty of hot water for at least 3 showers in a row. We also knew there was no WiFi and did not count on using any at the park. We downloaded offline maps to our phones, and printed maps as a backup. We picked up free maps all over as well. We told friends back home we would be out of touch for X days, and we called as soon as we were back in civilization. Surprisingly we were actually able to get a tiny bit of (free) cellular data after dark from our cabin. (Enough to text or view facebook on our data plan.) No problems, part of the charm. We expected expensive food - it's a captive audience after all. We planned to eat picnic lunches from our cooler, and budgeted for overpriced breakfast and dinner. I didn't want to cart in a week's worth of food in our already stuffed family SUV. So here's what we did not count on for the Yellowstone cabin stay. 1) The food is not only overpriced but pretty terrible quality. Really, McDonalds would be embarrassed to serve even the breakfast stuff. At the Old Faithful cafeteria we paid $15+ a plate for dinner, and my kids said their school cafeteria lunch food is far superior. 2) You cannot cook at all, or even build a fire outdoors. (Good reason - the siding on the cabins is so old and dry, one spark would send it up like a tinderbox.) 3) There is no wildlife anywhere in the summer-crowded areas. We watched out the windows after nightfall to see if we might see some signs of life. Not even a squirrel. 4) There is no opportunity to socialize. We often stay in cabins and part of the fun is to sit on the porch and chat with other guests. No place to sit here, and 4-plex design with walls between porches means you can't see anyone if you wanted to. Staff at Yellowstone is mostly folks who travel in to work for the summer. I got the feeling that most of them are there for the National Park summer stay (certainly not the pay), and that whole work thing kinda gets in the way. Not outright rude, but you definitely know that your business is not important to them. The place is jam-packed a year in advance - really why should anyone care about problem solving or customer service? Generally, expect courtesy comparable to your average DMV employee, with less expertise - some are very nice, some just oblivious. Even management clings to old rules out of habit, even when they make no sense whatsoever. So after this experience here is my conclusion - If the goal is for the family to stay inside Yellowstone, is $240 a night + $200 a day for bad food REALLY worth a slightly softer bed, a private but dirty shower and cute soap? Next time, my answer is NO. We are packing light so we can bring camping equipment and food to cook. We can be uncomfortable and save $350 per day, plus stay near the company of people who might be nice. After breezing into the park through the north east entrance, we might even decide to camp outside the park on the northern side and drive in each day. Or maybe rent an RV in a nearby town? Just my 2 cents, or maybe $350 x 5 = $1750, however you want to look at it... Collapse
