Management to be fundamentally improved

First of all: it is not a lodge but a collection of 6 two stories-buildings with 50 rooms each and it has the charm of an old fashioned youth hostel. Rooms are clean but small. Beds are good, furthermore it is basic. Deception about facilities lacking or poor: no laundry because" camping was closed"; no free WiFi. Either 8 usd for one hour or 30 usd for three days. As I needed WiFi because of family circumstances I opted for three days of ,what appeared to be extremely bad quality, WiFi. The third deception was on the restaurant: the first evening I could only book for after 9.15h or be on the waiting list. After about 45 minutes I was brought to a table. In the meantime I tried to book a table for the following two evenings: either 17.15h or after 21.15h. Reason: "All other restaurants are closed so everybody...etc" The quaiity of the food was at best average. I do not criticize staff which was as helpful as possible but the monopolist management does not seem to care a damn about the customers. The tourists will come anyway...

Overpriced but Premium Rooms are better

We paid $285 for 1 night in a Premium Room. It was a smaller room compared to hotels that are less than 1/2 the price. I can understand that a national park charges a lot more. No TV. At least it was comfortable and clean, and the furnishings were newer. We had to travel to the Yellowstone Lake Lodge for dinner because there was only 1 restaurant open here and it was very expensive.

Dorm like hotel on Lake Yellowstone

We stayed here for two nights on a Gate 1 tour of national parks. The accommodations are Spartan. There is no TV and the furnishings are simple. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was really small with a small shower. It was worth having these conditions to stay within the park boundaries. We were close to many features and the lake makes for a beautiful walk. We had breakfast and dinner there which were both good but not great. Yellowstone has nicer lodging but you will pay a premium fo it.

Expensive for what you get

This is more like a college dormitory than a hotel. No elevators, so you have to schlep you luggage up a flight of stairs, which is a problem if you have any disabilities. The room was clean, but sparce, and as I said like a college dorm. If I return to Yellowstone, I will stay outside the park and drive in every day rather than stay in this over priced facility. To add to the disappointment, even though the lodges were all full, only one restaurant was open, causing long waits, and the general store was closed. If you are going to rent the rooms, all the facilities should be available. We checked ourt 2 days early elsewhere.

if it weren't for the location, you wouldn't voluntarily stay here

Every expense was spared in insulating rooms - both above and beside. Our stay in Elk lodge was punctuated with the upstairs neighbor's persistent toilet flushing throughout the night, a whiney child and throat clearing every 15 minute guy next door through the paper thin interconnecting door, squeeky floorboards above (in carpeted rooms) and general noise of people moving through their rooms and the foyer at all hours. The room itself was reasonably appointed, but insulation issues definitely let it down, particularly at the price point paid. If you're looking to explore all of Yellowstone from one location, Grant Village is not the best location as it's quite far from Roosevelt and Mammoth. I'd suggest Canyon or Old Faithful over Grant. My advice, get in early and book somewhere outside of Grant lodges. Food options are also very average, without much in the way of self-catering options. The lakehouse is by far the best value option if eating ou
