Old Faithful Snowlodge

Located in the Old Faithful area, the Snowlodge is the newest hotel in the park, built in 1999. It received the Cody Award for Western Design. Keeping in tuned with nature and it's surroundings the decor is wildlife and park themed. It's constructed of heavy timber log columns with a cedar shingle roof.

There are no TV's, radios, internet connections or air conditioning as in all of the Park's lodges. It's managed by Xanterra and reservations can be made on-line http://www.xanterra.com/properties/yellowstone.htm

Probably the most modern hotel in the park and the nicest of the 3 lodges we stayed at.
Good restaurant, gift shop, short walking distance to Old Faithful and the Visitor's Center. Next door to the Old Faithful Inn.

Glad we did not stay at The Old Faithful Inn since it was very crowded, busy and dark inside.

Open through the winter.

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel

This hotel is located in the north end of the park in the Mammoth Hot Springs area. The hotel is very old, furnishings are outdated, walls very thin. Once the first person rises in the morning, the whole hotel is up. The lobby is very nice and newly renovated. There is a gift shop and resturant across the street.

We had a mid-range room which was very large on a corner with 2 windows. It did have a private bath and old fashioned tub, no shower. Rooms with private bath have either a tub or shower. Many of the others have a sink only, showers and toilets are shared down the hall.

We paid about $90 a night which I thought was steep considering the old-fashioned lodging.

As in all the Park's lodging, there are no TV's, radios, air conditioning and internet connections.

Managed by Xanterra Corporation. Reservations can be made on-line at:
http://www.xanterra.com/properties/yellowstone.htm

All of the park's lodging fills up quickly so reservations should be made at least 8 months in advance.

Elk are a common site right outside the hotel and restaurant. Within a short walking distance to the Hot Spring Terraces. Across the street from the visitor's center and Fort Yellowstone.

whatever campsite you can find !!!: A BIG TENT AND SOME WOOD !!!!!!!

Unless your 100000 years old ... or you lost both legs in vietnam , i dont see a reason to sleep in any of the park's resorts ...
Bring a big tent , a sleeping bag , and a big bag to carry all the wood you find ...and you got yourself an amazing camping experience ....better then any hotel or inn !
The animal's voices ,and sounds ....coming from everywhere , complete the wildlife experience you are looking for ....
and .... oh ... did i mention its sooooo cheap !
enjoy

Hibernation Station: West Entrance to Yellowstone

Can't beat the bang for your buck here.
Had to use the fireplace most nights in April and the Jacuzzi tub was nice after hiking in the park for 8-10 hrs a day.

Silver Gate Lodging: A Place To Stay Outside the Park Near Lamar Valley

Silver Gate, Montana is a small community that is located one mile from Yellowstone’s northeast entrance. The northern most road in the park that runs from the northeast entrance on the east side of the park, to the Mammoth area on the west side of the park, is the only road open all year round. For this reason, Silver Gate outside the park, and Mammoth Hotel inside the park are the two best locations to stay, if you plan to explore the northern park road by auto in the winter. This road passes through Lamar Valley, making Silver Gate also an excellent location to stay in, if your main objective for visiting Yellowstone is to look for wolves in Lamar Valley. Silver Gate Lodging features three styles of log cabins and a small motel. All of the cabins have a bathroom with shower, and most have kitchenettes. Each cabin supplies you with bed linens and towels. Kitchenettes contain pots, pans, dishes, and utensils. When we travel to Yellowstone to look for wildlife with Cody’s Buffalo Bill’s Historical Center, this is where we stay. I have been very impressed with the rustic, lovely cabins.

The general store located at the Silver Gate Lodgings, has Swarovski spotting scopes for rent, if you plan to explore Lamar Valley in the hopes of viewing wildlife. You may contact the store about renting one of these scopes at 406-838-2371 or email them at silvergategeneralstore@gmail.com.

In the summer, you can also explore outside the park by driving two scenic highways located 16 miles from Silver Gate. These mountain highways are some of the most scenic in the United States. One road will take you over the Beartooth pass into the Beartooth wilderness and down to red Lodge, Montana. The other route forks off the same highway, but will take you to Cody, Wyoming along the Chief Joseph Highway. Stop at the historical turn off to read about Chief Joseph and view the beautiful vista.

In the winter, besides driving Yellowstone’s north road, you may enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing from your cabin or room.

West Yellowstone Comfort Inn: Good value at Comfort Inn

We stayed here for two nights on September 8 and 9. I'm glad we had reservations because there was a No Vacancy sign on the door when we arrived. This place is located on the far end of town. The room and bathroom were clean. In fact, the sink was located outside the bathroom, which was especially nice. A package of Eye Makeup Remover towlette was in a basket in the sink area. Good idea! The lighting was very good (some places use low wattage bulbs which really bugs me). We were charged the $1.50 for the safe but we were told that it would come off when we checked out if we just mentioned it to them, that we didn't use it. I usually check our bill before we leave and so I did remember to tell them, and there was no charge.
The breakfast was exactly as advertised. They had yogurt, fresh Belgium waffles, bagels and cream cheese, toast, apples, bananas, and oranges for fresh fruit, packaged oatmeal, cold cereal, coffee, juice, sweet rolls and eggs already peeled. This was offered both mornings.
The lady that worked in the breakfast area was very friendly and helpful and very good at keeping things stocked. Breakfast was served six to nine AM.
The pool area was hardly ever in use while we were there. We got our towels from someone at the desk. There was always someone there to help us.
We got the AARP rate of $98.10 for a 2 queen room each night we were there. I would recommend staying here as it is a good place for a base to tour the northern part of Yellowstone National Park.

I enjoyed the pool. The breakfast was very good for a motel. Actually, this was a place for very good value at this location.

Roosevelt Lodge: Rustic Western loding

This has to be the nicest part of the park. It's dedicated to the old west and remains one of the areas where life quiets down after dinner. The lodge is really a group of cabins with shared showers and restrooms. You can cook in the cabins or eat at the lodge. Both are great ways to spend your day.

Don't expect to see alot of the park from here. It's good for seeing places on the north loop (Mammonth, Canyon, Lamar Valley) but you'll spend most of your day in travel to get anywhere else.

You feel as if you've left the world behind and are nearly alone on the great prairies of the American West. Not really, but it sure can feel that way.

Alpine Motel: West Yellowstone Hotel Great Stay!

Spotlessly clean and updated, near the center of town and minutes to Yellowstones West Gate. The owners are on site and very nice folks! All first floor units guarantee you won't have big foot stomping around above you. Stayed in lots of chain hotels and this beats them easily in service, and quiet surroundings.

The Pony Express: Nice, cheap hotel

A nice big suite with two rooms each with a double bed plus bathroom. Cost less per person (3) than the hostel.

Note: Visited on the 27th of April, sign on hostel said "Closed for winter. See you next year!"

Rustic Wagon Wheel Campground and Cabins: Best RV and Cabins in town

I take a bicicle ride into the park each year around April 10th before they open the roads to cars. At this time there are already baby bison dropping. The elk are a little later on. You will have a good time watching the baby bison, or as we call them; “the little red dogs.”

Without a doubt in my mind, the best possible location for your family would be the Rustic Wagon Wheel Campground and Cabins.

(406) 646-7872

I have sent several people there, they always love it. They are clean, quiet, and very reasonably priced for this town. You could park your RV and be in a cabin a few feet away, close enough for ya?

Campgrounds: Go Camping!

Yellowstone is a great place to camp. Their are several designated campsites. Everything from single occupancy campsites to campsites with RV hookups and over 350 sites. Whichever you prefer Yellowstone has it. Most charge between $12 and $35 but some are even Free!

Get acquainted with Yellowstone on a whole new level... Laying on the ground.

On the grounds of Yellowstone Park: The Lodge in 1946

When we visited Yellowstone back in 1946, this was the type of accommodation available to us. It was very rustic, but did have all the necessary amenities.

We were on the grounds of the park.

Three Bear Lodge and restaurant: My folks stayed here.

This is actually in West Yellowstone, but this is a good access point for the park. This hotel has been completely rebuild from the ground up.

They offer tours in the park year round from the hotel and Dad says they were a lot of fun. They did the snow coach tour.
