Bad Place But No Options
It seems nothing has changed in these cabins since I first saw them, 40 years ago. They are clean and in the park. That is all I can say good about them. No phone, no TV, no WIFI, cell service stinks, etc. No A/C, but it is not needed. There is no circulating air, which does not seem healthy given the COVID world we live in. The walls were so thin, I could hear the room full of kids next door. The bathrooms are small, beds fair, and walls are thin. The price was outrageous. This is what you get when no competition exists. I stayed in “overpriced Jackson” for less money and a ton more luxury.

Dirty, location is not worth it
They use reusable shampoo and soap dispensers, that were crusted and filthy from prior use. Not even wiped down during the covid virus pandemic. Gravel all over the floor meaning it was not even swept or vacuumed before we checked in. Light switches covered in grime. It was a very uncomfortable space.

Wonderful stay! Great people in the shop when my rented poles (from somewhere else) were too long. Knitting by the fire was the perfect way to end a day of walking in the snow by the geysers. And the piano/cello lady was a hit!

Comfortable winter lodging
20 year old lodge so it is reasonably updated. Great location next to Old Faithful and the Old Faithful In. Nice XC ski and snowshoe shop. Great trails from the lodge and easy tours or walking around the geyser basin. The lodge is comfortable and the dining room is good. Good tour opportunities around the park.

Winter at Old Faithful...the great and not so great!
We live adjacent to YS and have gone into the Old Faithful on a snowcoach several times over the years. We recently spent three nights in a Western cabin which was comfortable and clean, and had a small refrigerator and coffee maker which we appreciated and used. We reserved snowcoach drop-offs on two of our days to ski Spring Creek Divide and Fairy Falls, both lovely trails traversing landscapes, forests, meadows, geyser basins, and along creeks and rivers. We saw bison, elk, otters, ducks, and geese. Snowcoach drivers going in and out of Old Faithful, as well as the coach drivers who did the ski drop-offs were all friendly, informative, and helpful. We also enjoyed walking several hours around the geyser basins and to the Observation Point that looks down on Old Faithful.
In the evening after dinner we enjoyed hanging out in the lodge by the fireplace, playing cards with our friends and listening to live music. But unfortunately, the restaurant was our least favorite experience. Breakfasts and dinners were mediocre. The "hot food" in the breakfast buffet was generally lukewarm to cool, and I can't imagine how it met heath requirements. When we mentioned this to the manager he just got defensive. One waiter at dinner yelled at us after we asked him to separate our checks. We heard the host talking to a waiter about how she couldn't wait to get out of here. It seemed like some staff were unhappy and overwhelmed, and service was often very slow. We are pretty flexible and informal, yet we don't remember such a poor dining experience. But luckily the weather was amazing, skiing was fun and OF during the winter is our favorite time.
