I always prefer staying within the park and we were very happy with this lodge. Modern amenities with a very comfortable nights sleep. Service was very good and all facilities were very clean. I would stay again.

Winter is beautiful here
Lodge is beautiful and very comfortable. Close to Old Faithful and other geysers. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing available. No TV’s. Internet is spotty. Quiet. Pay attention to transport and plane connections. DO NOT use US Park Lodging for your booking they’re terrible. Do it yourself.

Winter Stay in Frontier Cabin
Staying at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge is all about the experience rather than the accommodations. We stayed in an old Frontier Cabin over New Year's. It had 2 double beds and a bathroom with a shower and toilet. No TV. We were fine with these barebone accommodations and were looking forward more to the experience of being in the heart of the park than in a fancy or even nice hotel.
Lots of snow, about 3+ feet in front of our cabin. It was such a winter wonderland of solitude and beauty.
It was a good stay except for the bed mattresses--they were AWFUL, soft, old, and uncomfortable, which made it hard to have a good nights' sleep any night. The hotel should definitely look to upgrade the mattresses. We appreciated the vintage, old feel of the cabin, which was possibly built in the 1920s-1940s from what we read. The heater worked really well for the room, but the bathroom got pretty cold. It was nice having a large countertop space "dresser" as well as a mini dining table that had 2 chairs and 2 wooden benches. All the furniture was made out of logs. Toiletries and coffee maker also provided.
Every night the actual hotel lobby provided fresh baked cookies and hot cider, which was a fun perk. Their lemon white chocolate cookies were so GOOD! The lobby had a fun atmosphere for hanging out. And we had good experiences at their Obsidian Dining Room restaurant for breakfast and dinner, although their dinner menu removed some choices from previous years, so there weren't as many (good) choices. The dining room also had a kids' menu. And there was a gift shop on the main level of the hotel.
We enjoyed all the amenities of the location: the 10-minute walk to Old Faithful Geyser, free outdoor ice-skating rink (skates provided but correct sizes were a challenge to find), nearby snowshoeing (or skiing) trails, and free yummy goodies. It was a fun place to stay but giving it a lower rating (3.5 stars) primarily because of the poor mattresses. If the mattresses were upgraded, I would give it a 4.5 or 5.

Love the snow lodge cabin
we stayed three places inside Yellowstone, OFI, OF snow lodge cabin and lake cabin.
Snow cabin is the best, two beds, with own bathroom, shower only, car park right out of the door, wifi is great, too.

Stayed here because it was the only place available in the park--it took 30 minutes to sort out the room as they'd lost the booking--it was 440 dollars for 2 couples to stay in ONE room--see pictures--very small--the thermostat didn't work--the wi-fi didn't work--breakfast wasn't included--the bar had 3 bottles of beer left and virtually none of the wine on the list left(there were still 17 days before they closed down)--the restaurant also had most of the things off--not a good stay but it's close to Old Faithful! and the car park is big
