Cabins are tired - You are paying for location
We stayed in cabin A6. It was clean and all was in good working order. The pro's were we had a hot tub and location. The con's were even with the fan it was warm until 10 pm and there was no refrigerator. The cabins are older and it shows. One set of windows faced the road, so if we kept both sets of windows open we had no privacy. We stayed in several park properties on our trip and this was the least impressive. Maybe the hotel itself is better. While not bad, next time will check out locations in Gardner.

Great location but
Booked this place a year in advance because I wanted to be in the park. The location is good, but the facilities are poor. I knew it didn't have AC, but since it usually goes down to the 40's at night, didn't think that would be a problem. However, the design is such that the room never cooled off. There was a small fan, but it didn't help as you can't put it in the window.
The room itself is fine, but forgettable.
If I had it to do over again, would have stayed in Gardener which is only 10 minutes away. We wound up going there for dinner since the place at the hotel had long lines and minimal choice.

Launching Spot for Adventure oh and Wolves
I booked our cabin June 2020. This is an amazing place with many hikes and animal encounters right outside or in some cases on the property. Don’t miss Lamar Valley which we drove to and is not far. We saw elk, Buffalo, pronghorn and wolves. The wolves are far away but visit in the evening to hear them howl. Cabin was adequate with 2 beds and bath. Dining options are limited in this area. It’s all about location.

The Cabin was great for us
Four of us stayed in a cabin. Fortunately, it was close to the dining and we were able to park close to the cabin which was a blessing since my wife uses a rollator walker. The cabin was clean and check in at the hotel lobby went well. The ice machines were at the far end of the cabin area or in the hotel.

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel
The only reason Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel doesn't get 5 stars is that they don't offer what I consider to be basic services in the 21st century: AC and WiFi. The other thing that is a bit frustrating is that the hotel still isn't offering in-person dining.
The location of the hotel is down the street from the Mammoth Hot Springs. You could walk there. Its also right across the street from the Visitors Center and the dining hall and general store. I can't overstate the convenience of staying inside the park and not having to wait in line at the park gate every morning.
The hotel has an amazing art deco vibe. Definitely check out the Map Room -it is a gorgeous space. The bar there had a good selection of beers and cocktails. The gift shop is a nice place to get gift and souvenirs. Add to that the wildlife that you are likely to see on the grounds and the hotel experience is just really amazing.
The rooms have been updated and are a bit larger and much nicer than your average national park inn. They even have rainfall shower heads inside the stand up/separate showers. They are very nice rooms, some may even have a view of the Hot Springs themselves.
All the staff members we interacted with were also great. Everyone was kind, courteous, professional and welcoming. Even in times when they are considerably short-staffed and dealing with a pandemic.
Yes, it's very pricey to stay here - just like all National Park Inns. But, you know why its so expensive? Cause its worth it. Enjoy!
