Lake Lodge Cabins is ideal for families that want rustic but don't want to camp.

Lake Lodge Cabins is ideal for families that want rustic but don't want to camp. The sparsely furnished cabins at this Yellowstone accommodation boast only the bare essentials - roof, bed and showerhead. The restaurant is self-service and simple. The wooden rockers that line the lodge porch offer a sparten place to relax. And while Lake Lodge is far from charming it has a certain appeal. Yellowstone Lake is but a stone's throw away. The lodge is located at the end of the road meaning there is no thru traffic outside the cabins. In addition to family cabins, two bed cottages have enough space for one child to sleep on the floor. (Bring your own sleeping bag.) Camp stoves are permitted; mind you will be cooking in the car park. NB: None of the cabins have views.

Old Faithful Inn is the most popular hotel in Yellowstone. Not only is this accommodation a historic landmark it is just steps from Old Faithful Geyser. But before you get caught up in turn-of-the-century romance take note of the following: The rustic charm of the lobby doesn't apply to the rooms.

Old Faithful Inn is the most popular hotel in Yellowstone. Not only is this accommodation a historic landmark it is just steps from Old Faithful Geyser. But before you get caught up in turn-of-the-century romance take note of the following: The rustic charm of the lobby doesn't apply to the rooms. Most of the rooms at this historic inn are located in a modern addition. The 'Old House' rooms are truly basic. The high-end rooms are hardly well-appointed. Having said that, the lobby of this log hotel is truly impressive. You don't need to spend the night to take it all in.

Location is the only reason to consider Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel. The hotel rooms are akin to a budget motel. The cabins are basic, not just simple. The service at this Xanterra property doesn't come with a smile. The food at the adjacent restaurant and general store is mediocre if not poor. There are no special programs for kids. There are no family friendly facilities. B ... Read More
Location is the only reason to consider Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel. The hotel rooms are akin to a budget motel. The cabins are basic, not just simple. The service at this Xanterra property doesn't come with a smile. The food at the adjacent restaurant and general store is mediocre if not poor. There are no special programs for kids. There are no family friendly facilities. But then again one doesn't travel to Yellowstone to sleep and eat in style and park the kids at a club. Bison and elk graze on the front lawn. Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is but a short walk from the travertine terraces. What's more, sleeping in Mammoth beats driving from Gardiner, MT for only a few dollars in savings. NB: Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is located in the northwest corner of Yellowstone. Spend a night or two in Mammoth and the rest of the trip at one or more Yellowstone hotels.
