I have stayed a lot of places and paid a lot of money to stay in hotels. This had to be one of the most disappointing experiences I've ever had. The room was meh. The view was meh. The lobby was nice, but crowded. The restaurant was awful. I asked the staff person running the concierge a question about one of their brochures. They said that they couldn't answer it and I had to come back. So I come back the next day and they tell me that the brochure is not accurate and I can't do the thing on the brochure. All the brochures to do stuff are out of date or are for tours and there's no wifi so you can't do any research on your own. The lodge where they supposedly had wifi was a joke. Couldn't even load any websites. Paid for an hour waiting for things to refresh. The only real restaurant there is a sit down expensive place. We never got our food hot. It was bland and mostly gross. And you're paying 120 bucks a couple to eat there. I wouldn't even mind if the food was good. It was not. I would have rather had a pb and j. The ONLY thing this hotel does right is that it has a prime location. So it is in the park. But what we didn't understand before I visited this park was that even though it is right there in the middle of it, it does not save you much time as you have to drive 40 minutes to 2 hours around the park to see stuff. Might as well stay outside the park and drive in every day. At least you'll save money, get a choice of food and have cellular service. Do yourself a favor and avoid at all costs. 500 bucks a night to stay here is robbery.

Stayed here twice and were very pleased each time - historical and charming!

We stayed here the first time in a 2nd floor room facing the parking lot. It was beautifully furnished, reminding us of a B&B in terms of the sense of individuality. The room was clean and quiet and the bathroom had a convenient floorplan. Instead of a desk, there is a table for two. One thing we really missed having was a fridge - wish they could add this one modern touch. The 2nd time we stayed here we were part of a Tauck Tour and were placed in a room with a view of the lake - just lovely! I wouldn't have paid the extra money had we been on our own but it sure was appreciated. We took the Historical Tour that is offered of the hotel during our first stay which was very worthwhile - really learned a lot of interesting things that we wouldn't have otherwise been privy to that added to our experience. We ate in the Lake Dining Room for all of our meals which exceeded our expectations - a beautiful room with excellent service and ambience. The food quality was the best of all of the sit-down restaurants that we tried in other Yellowstone Lodges. Would highly recommend this hotel!

We only stayed overnight so did not get to appreciate the full services of the hotel. Our stay was comfortable. the beds were very comfortable which is a big plus for weary travellers. There were plenty of services available and it is definitely a place to stop off and enjoy.

Top shelf choice

It’s hard to say something positive and original about “the Lady of the Lake” that hasn’t already been said. In early May 2017 we were guests for an opening week, and this year we came for the closing week of the season because we had such a wonderful experience last year. The service and accommodation were the same on both of our visits, exquisite! The Lake Yellowstone Hotel is the top shelf choice when visiting Yellowstone National Park. There were only three things we missed on this visit - #1 & #2 were Sylvester and Stanley, two bison that were frequently seen around the hotel grounds last year, and #3 being in the hotel on the last day of the season when the grandfather clock in the lobby is ceremoniously stilled at 11am.

Cabin or a super expensive tough shed in the parking lot!

You had better expect a big hit to your wallet if you plan to stay in the "cabins" in the parking lot at the Yellowstone Lake Hotel. The hotel is beautiful but the tough sheds in the front lot are not. Over $240 a night for a shed with no phone, tv, wifi, fridge or anything other than a bed and a small shower. Lots of talk about being aware of bears but absolutely no outdoor lights so you stumble around in the dark trying to make your way to your car or the hotel for meals, etc. I do not recommend staying here unless you enjoy roughing it while paying a huge bill!
