Rustic and Historic
We didn't stay here, but while visiting Old faithful Geyser we took a look at the Inn. Wow! So rustic and full of history. Definitely worth sometime to walk around inside or just sit in the lobby and gaze up.

This lodge is right in the heart of the park, steps from Old Faithful. I stayed here for 2 nights as part of my caravan tour.
The plus's it is right in the heart of the park, you can walk outside and see Old Faithful erupt at any time. I watched it erupt one morning at 5:30 a.m. with only 4 or 5 other people out there. You can also get an early start or stay late to check out everything in the Upper Geyser Basin.
My room was decent sized not that small, the bathroom was a little tight. There is no wi-fi or tv in the room. I got lost several times on the way to the room as it is a little tricky figuring out what floor you are on.
You definelty want to make a reservation if you want to eat in the main dining room, the bar wasn't that crowded when I went for dinner. Their is always a big line for the breakfast buffet in the morning.
There are lots of people in the lobby during peak park times checking out the lodge, shopping killing time before Old Faithful or hitting the restroom.

Such a majestic place
I could have spent my entire vacation sitting in the lobby. It is rich in history with a rustic feel, a truly must see if you're going to Yellowstone. I'm so glad I made it a priority. Mammoth Hot Springs looked nice, but Old Faithful Inn is like stepping back in time.

Historic and Beautiful
Definitely worth a stop while at the park. Architecture is amazing - historic site. Grab a meal, while a bit pricey the food is good, good size portions and great staff. Sit by the fire in the lobby, watch the Old Faithful eruption and enjoy!

Beautiful historic lodge right next to Old Faithful, but LOUD
This is a difficult review. The lodge is absolutely beautiful and you can't beat the location - in the heart of Yellowstone, right next to Old Faithful! However, our room shared a wall with a bar on the second floor. While the room itself was clean and comfortable, it was LOUD. Not a good setting when tired kids are trying to sleep. Front desk should not put families with kids in this room. Or at the very least, provide a warning and free earplugs. The shared bathrooms were generally clean. It would be nice if they closed the doors between the main lobby and the hotel room wings; it often felt like non-residents were exploring the hotel, which is awkward when going to or from the showers or restrooms. I would stay again, but would be VERY careful about room assignment. Avoid any room that shares a wall with the main lobby. Fair value, given the remote location.
