A historic hotel
We stayed here for 2 nights...the history of this place was our main reason...our room was pleasant but VERY small....listed as queen bed but was a double.....the dining room,sadly because of covid restrictions had buffet only...great staff but the food was not too good...meatloaf with gravy and chicken....close to Old Faithful and Geyser Basins is its main advantage..had cocktails on rooftop terrace while watching Old Faithful...
No cell service or wifi...we had to walk 2 properties down to call anyone...im glad we stayed to be part of its history but for over 500.00 a night...we expected a bit more...do it once...

Staying at Old Faithful Inn overrated?
The Old Faithful Inn is way over priced. I had staying at the Inn on my bucket list and it was great being able to walkout and view old faithful geyser. The staff are excellent. It is sad that it is so pricey and likely out of the reach of most families. We stayed in Gardiner MT for the majority of the nights while visiting the park and that was nice.
The best tip I can give to a family on a budget is to find a hotel/motel with a microwave and fridge and purchase frozen dinners and cook them in the microwave. Your family can save some cash this way!!! Also bring loads of inexpensive bottle water for the entire family.
The current dinner buffet at the Inn is ok. The desert was the best part of the meal. The rest of the food was good but not as good as I remember when you were able to select from a menu.
The staff are always polite and helpful. I just wish the rooms were more affordable at the old faithful inn.

Our room was okay. Clean and worked for us since we didn't plan on staying in the room during the day anyway. Absolutely nothing wrong with it.....just rather plain. Two beds, large bathroom, and a big window with a view of bison! Best part of this inn is the fact that you can walk out and go visit the geysers.

Worth a stay.
Early, easy check-in. Beautiful character in this building. Everything you need, including coffee, in the room but very basic. Extras include alarm clock and hair dryer. Shower was hot, toilet was not flushing efficiently. Soaps provided, & towels are nice, bed was comfortable. There are sitting areas with tables and chairs near our room. The room chair was stiff. Very short walk to grocery store, visitor center & gift shop. Geysers are right outside. I wish I had known about the Bumble Bee Geyser when we got there. It’s a spectacular show but is active once or twice a day. Staying so close by makes it easy to plan around it. I would definitely stay again however, since there aren’t any king beds, a double room would br much more comfortable than a queen for us.

Worst value fir cheap ($600+ per night) but view of old faithful must have been $550 of that $50 room
We booked a month in advance and could not cancel the room had a very old fashioned heating system. No internet small bed and 3/4 bath. The staff at check in were very nice and helpful but the door person knew almost nothing and gave wrong info ( time next door shop was closed. Place fir ice cream etc. Masks requirements were in place by Biden Even though there is no evidence it stopped anything
This place is very historic and unique and they can charge >$600 a night because they can. Worst value room I have ever had. Needed an extra blanket as outside temp was 35 and heat on full would not bring it up. They had supplied a very thin cheap blanket
Itemized room charges
Taxes and fees $100 rip off for bad room facilities
Hotel design history architecture $100 fair price but you can get it fir free just walk in
View ok ok’d faithful geyser from room $300. But you can get it fir free
Food not included
Recreational facilities ( pool, exercise room spa, none but a walk by the geysers is better anyway
