Motel at luxury hotel prices. Also, the wifi (in the main lodge only) doesn't work.
Obviously you're paying for the location, but there isn't much to do around this specific location anyways. The hotel room was very basic and very expensive (you can stay in 5 star hotels elsewhere for less). The wifi is painfully slow (even opening up normal webpages will take forever), and that can only be done while sitting of the floor of the main lodge because the signal doesn't reach outside of there. For 2020, that lack of functional wifi (esp for a place with no cellphone coverage) is unacceptable.

Location is great, overpriced though.
Yeah as people say its the location you are paying for. They should be disclosing that due to Covid and Staffing, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker had been removed from all cabins.......this was frustrating as someone who has food allergies and likes to make our own food. The restaurant was. very limited and if you wanted a cup of tea fine .....but they could not give you milk. You had to buy a bottle but then you have nowhere to keep it seemed really stupid. Staff was not very helpful in that respect. The food prices were decent though. Room was clean and shower hot .

Great four night western cabin stay.
The cabins are not really cabins. There are four(?) units per building. It is more like a rustic hotel - no A/C, coffee, microwave, or refrigerator. We knew what we were getting into, so this was all fine for us. We had a very peaceful and quiet stay and never heard any of the other guests. We even had visitors around dinner time right at our cabin complex - first a bison and an elk on our last night. The rooms were spacious and clean and seemed to have been updated fairly recently. There were several adirondack chairs and tables on the little patio of the complex, which we used once. Because of covid-19, there were no extra pillows or blankets in the room, so you have to request that they be delivered to your room. We were there in mid-September, and they still only had one blanket on each bed, and it got chilly enough at night that we would leave our extra water outside and use our car for a refrigerator. The lodge is a bit of a hoof and the road leading to it is very rough, so be prepared for a walk or a bumpy ride to get your morning coffee or any meals at the lodge.
It is pricey, but compared to having to drive long distances in and out every day, there is no comparison when you want to optimize your visit, And the lake is beautiful!

Decent but overpriced
We spent one night in a Lake Lodge cabin, the little yellow cabins in the parking lot basically of the larger (but closed for 2020) Lake Yellowstone hotel. The cabin had two double beds and very small pillows, no TV or AC (wasn't needed), phone, or wifi. Very basic but clean accommodations. Just hard to spend $300 a night for this. But the location is in the park and ideal for getting to see and do more things without having to leave the park each night. Meals were only available in the restaurant in the Lake lodge, as everything else was closed from COVID. We were comfortable and slept fine. You are paying for the location and convenience not for the creature comforts we are all used to. I would try the main hotel next time if it is open, likely much better rooms and options there.

One night stay
Stayed here one night on our trip around yellowstone. Below are my pros and cons
- Great location for us as it allowed us to hit up Hayden Valley in both sunset and sunrise with minimal driving in dark.
- Beautiful lobby, though all furniture has been removed to encourage social distancing due to COVID-19. I could imagine in "normal" circumstances this would be a fun hangout spot to meet other travelers.
- Very clean and modern rooms
- Nice shower, comfortable bed, all which allowed for a great night's rest.
- Staff was incredibly nice
- Wildlife, particularly elk are abundant in the area
- No wifi in rooms, and the wifi offered in the lobby was terrible and not worth trying to use
Overall my only con was the lack of cell service and wifi but what can you expect when you're in the middle of wilderness? I would recommend lake lodge for anyone doing a trip around yellowstone as long as they're ok with no outside connection :-)
