Room was not as shown on pictures, we were in Bear unit. Room was too small for 4 people, no where to put luggage for 4, shower was so small I could not use ( approx 28" x 28"), no wifi, no phone service, had to get reservations for restaurant, only 5pm or 9pm, so we had to cut our plans short to eat at 5pm. Room was clean. It was overpriced for what you get. Others there said not to eat breakfast at the restaurant as the eggs tasted powered, so we did not. Will not stay here again!

Over Priced and Dumpy but in a Beautiful Setting

Grant Village Lodge is in a beautiful and serene setting. It sits at the Edge of the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake, and seems to be on the less crowded side of the park. Sadly, it is beyond showing its age. It is tired. It smells. The carpets look like they have never been replaced. The bottom of the shower curtain is covered in mildew. The bathroom ceiling is caked in mold. The walls are paper thin; from toilet flushing to door closing to conversations, you can hear it all. There is nothing appealing about the room. It is depressing. It is dumpy. All this for just under $280 per night.

The location is excellent but the price is about 3x what you get. Rooms are clean but everything is dated from top to bottom. Look, I realize you aren’t traveling to the park to be at your room, but the fact that the only microwave is at the registration center for 100’s to share is just cheap. After hiking all day we had to use a little microwave in a lobby. Having one in each lodge building would be nice. And again, I understand that nobody wants to see people staring at their phones but having no Wi-Fi prevents visitors from 1. Discovering more of the park by researching while there 2. Getting updates on closures, etc. the Wi-Fi in the lobby is so bad I couldn’t even pull up a trail map for the next day. $300+ a night for a dorm room is just gouging IMO. It’s 2022, offer some basics.

Clean and fairly modern small rooms

This is a perfectly good option for staying in this corner of the park. It is pricey, and there is no classic lodge experience, but you are in the park and not camping. The rooms are surprisingly small but quite functional. Quite pleasant for walking around and down to Yellowstone Lake.

$400 Motel 6

Nobody expects the world from a Motel 6, because it’s not $400 a night to stay in one. This place is a dormatory essentially. The bed may be a brand name but it’s soft and telegraphs the slightest movement causing a horrible night’s sleep. The pillows are smaller than the average tote bag, and absolutely neck breakingly overstuffed. The absence of a useable internet connection, while beneficial to wildlife, is not the escape from modernity that it might seem; there is almost zero printed material aside from a park roadmap (from what? high altitude perspective?) and a poorly drafted schedule of available tours to try and inform yourself with. The west entrance at least handed us a newspaper and detailed full color map, what’s Xanterra’s excuse? Long story short, just stay outside the park and drive in everyday - you need to drive for hours to get around anyway, what’s a few more to stay somewhere with internet, so on the spot research can be conducted? Believe all the other negative reviews and take them as warnings from those who have gone before you. You’ll enjoy this magnificently preserved park and the beautiful wildlife all the more.
