    Pretty close to camping


    For the price it is not worth it. We were in a cabin. The cabin had two sides to it w/ a connecting door. I knew and was traveling with those on the other side of that door and it is a good thing because there wasn't a lock on the door connecting the rooms! There's no TV, no phone, no mobile phone service, no office area to borrow a computer, and the bathroom is across the campus as a community bathroom. The wall between the rooms is paper thin! And the mattresses had seen much better days.

    It was clean, very clean. Although in order to be 'green' towels that are left on the rack will not be changed out and sheets are only changed every 5 days.

    They do offer wi-fi to those who bring their own laptops. We were on motorcycle and had no room for such things.

    Unique Quality: Location location location.

    Great value


    Stayed in the Cabins. Each cabin has 2 big beds and a sink. Some are standalone, some are 2 attached to each other. For $80/nite you can't beat it inside the park. Good location too, plenty of elk hanging around the place too. Walking distance to Minerva terraces.

    Mammoth Hot Springs Cabins


    The cabins are located right next to the Mammoth Hot Springs terraces, and were very nice and cosy. They were not ensuite, but had a sink, with a few common bathrooms scattered over the grounds so that there is always one just around the corner, wherever your cabin may be located.

    The mineral terraces are only a short walk away, for meals you have the choice between the restaurant or a fast-food outlet, and there is also a very good visitor centre in the village.

    I had read that you can sometimes see elk on the terraces, so I was hoping to find some there around dusk, but as somebody informed me the next day, while I was searching for them on the terraces, they were right down in the village, grazing on one of the green areas there!

    hotels near terraces and hot springs


    We stayed in the cheapest option of the hotel. i.e. the frontier cabin. We were not so satisfied by the standard, but the location in a field full of squirrels was amazing for us.

    Directions: in Mammoth Hot Springs youll find it

    A very busy point in the park, always full of tourists.Buy fruits and foods in Gardiner, about 20 minutes' drive.

    Unique Quality: My daughter love playing with pikas.

    If You Wish to Stay In the Mammoth Area


    Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is Located in the beautiful mountain valley seen in the photo. This is an area, which was often visited by earlier visitors. Once a fort, you will still see the striking stone buildings of the old Fort Yellowstone. I have only seen the lobby and the wonderful dining room, but based on those I would assume that the rooms would be very comfortable. This is a historic hotel, built in the 1930s. Most rooms within the hotel have two queen or double sized beds, a telephone, and a bathroom. There are, however, also rooms offered with shared bathrooms, and if you are on a budget, this will save you money. These shared bathrooms are located down the hall. There are two suites available with a private bedroom containing two queen sized beds, a sitting room, cable TV, and a bathroom. You will find a restaurant within the hotel, as well as a grill. There is a desk to arrange interpretive sightseeing tours from.

    There are three styles of cabins to choose from, including budget motel-style without a private bathroom, cabins with bathrooms, and four hot-tub cabins. The hot-tub cabins each have a private 6-person outside hot tub, surrounded by a private fence.

    This would be a good place to stay if you wish to drive the Lamar Valley route looking for wild life, or wish to see Mammoth Hot Springs. It would be a long distance to drive to see sites on the west or south side of the park. This hotel is open in both the summer and a winter season, and is located on the west end of the only plowed road in the park

    Unique Quality: There is a gift shop, lounge, espresso service, ATM, a general store, medical clinic, and gas stations in the area. There are often elk grazing in the area, and it is close to Lamar Valley, and the Mammoth Hot Spring terraces.

    Since the hotel is open for both the winter and summer seasons it is a great location from which to explore the northern most road in the park, which is the only plowed park road accessible to auto travel in the winter. This is also a central area for Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing during the winter months.

    Directions: In the north west corner of the main road, near the North Entrance.

    Nice place to Stay


    Plain but clean and well maintained.

    Unique Quality: Within the park. Easy access. woldlife comes right up to the parking lot at night. We appreciated the elevator because of our third floor room.

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel

by annk

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:

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.

Grand old hotel in need of serious renovation.

by TripAdvisor Member Hearthside

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is a grand hotel that needs some renovation to restore its luster for modern day visitors. Our room at the corner of the first floor was spacious enough, but the lighting was poor. There is a single shower for each sex on each hall, but our room did have its own bathroom with a bath tub and sink. The ancient radiator made a lot of racket and the room was overheated. When we turned down the radiator part way through the night, it completely shut down and we froze instead.
The morning breakfast buffetwas delicious. The hotel staff was knowledgable and friendly.
The highlight of our stay was an evening hour of outdoor hot tubbing under a starlit winter sky.
It was very convenient to stay at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel before taking the 8 am snowcoach to Yellowstone Snow Lodge.
If you want to eat dinner at the hotel, be sure to make dinner reservations when you reserve your room.

Needs heavy duty updating

by A TripAdvisor Member

Expecting a little more out of the Nat'l Park Services, we were left with a disappointing stay. The Frontier Cabins are so outdated, cold and deary. The paint was peeling on the outside of the cabins and the lawn was full of prairie dog holes. The prairie dogs (little creatures beg for food on your porch) Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and Frontier Cabins at Yellowstone Nat'l Park will not be revisited, better place to stay would be Gardnier outside the Roosevelt Tower. The food at hotel restaurant was terrible with no taste. Take your money elsewhere!

2 Nights in Yellowstone

by kop-queen

We will be able to spend just 2 nights in the park early June, entering from the north or north east corner and leaving from the south east. Can anyone recommend the best lodges/areas within the park to stay and suggest the route we should take? Availabilty will probably already be restricted so I guess we need to book asap.

RE: 2 Nights in Yellowstone

by maxcat16

We stayed in the cheap and cheerful lodges at Mammoth - very cool. And then the Old faithfuk Inn - very atmospheric huge log cabin hotel building. I'd recommend both of those. I think we entered at the NE too, stayed in Mammoth, one night then drove down to Old Faithful the next day stopping at places on the way. It was in no way long enough to appreciate the place but enough for a taster. On our first day weather was gorgeous - on day we left it was a blizzard!

RE: RE: 2 Nights in Yellowstone

Thanks maxcat,

we have booked the first night in a Frontier Cabin at Mammoth Hot Springs and the second in the Old Faithful Inn. I will carry on researching now to see how to make the most of the 2 days we have in the park.

If you want you can see our pictures from Yellowstone. They will give you a sense of the different areas of the park. Atleast we intended they would. If you click on my name, you should see a link to the site.

Its a wonderful place. You'll want to spend some time walking the boardwalk at Upper Geyser Basin at Old Faithful.

RE: 2 Nights in Yellowstone

by Segolily

Come in from the NE if at all possible, (check to see first if the Beartooth hwy is open). You'll love that road. If you do that then take the time to see Tower Falls before heading over to Mammoth. You said two nights, but not how many days. If you still have time after exploring Mammoth then head down to Norris Geyser Basin. The best part of the park for me is this basin. Get expected times for eruptions and plan your time accordingly.

Explore Norris the morning of the next day if you didn't already. Then head over to Canyon and take the walk to see Lower Falls. From there it is a toss up whether to back track and head over to Old Faithful via Madison Jct and Firehole basin or south through Hayen Valley to the Lake. I like the lake and would probably head that way, though either way would be good. Once at Old Faithful spend some time exploring that whole area, watch Old faithful as many times as you can, it never fails to impress. If you head out the South entrance then of course you also get to see the Tetons!
