Clean, personal space!
It's nice to have your own little space instead of having to stay in a hotel room! This cabin had a King room, queen room, and sofa sleeper that worked good for our party of 5. Sofa mattress is not very comfortable, but ok for kids. Cabins are modern with nice finishes, fireplace, dishwasher, 2 burner stove, fridge, microwave and coffee pot. AC works good, beds were very comfortable, bathroom is large and water pressure good. Housekeeping could pay a bit more attention to area around toilet and shower door rail, but that's the only thing I noticed and not that bad. Bath and body works soaps and lotion were provided, as well as coffee and condiments, basic dishes, napkins, etc. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was due to price, it was $483/night plus tax. However if we would have gotten two rooms for our party it would have been close to this price, without the personal cabin feel. This is a good option for families in the area wanting some privacy and space.

Great place just outside the park
We have stayed here often and will continue to do so. Conveniently located just minutes from Yellowstone Park. One and two bedroom units with a kitchen, living area, etc. it like your own little piece of heaven. They have large fire pits and offer free s’mores that you can do over the open fire. They offer lots of free yes such as walking sticks, use of binoculars, maps, etc. a great place to stay and relax. Each unit is fully furnished with plenty of towels, dishes, tv, fireplace, fridge, and dishwasher. We have stayed both summer and winter. If you can’t stay in the park, this is the next best thing. Easy walk to the Wolf and Grizzly Discovery Center as well as the local shopping and restaurant areas. We will return!

No Free Breakfast No Free S’mores No Swimming Pool
We arrived at the hotel next door to check in just as we were instructed. But when we arrived, there was a note on the front door saying the hotel was closed and we had to drive up the road to the Holiday Inn in order to check in. Explorer Cabins didn’t send out an email before hand or nothing.
While checking in at the nearby holiday inn, the man told me we didn’t have a free breakfast nor the s’mores kit as advertised. Roasting s’mores, free breakfast, and use of the swimming pool was the main selling points when we booked these cabins. And for the high price we paid, we were very disappointed to not have any of these amenities.

Nice place to say
I stayed here for three nights with my kids. There was a little confusion getting the keys as both places listed to get them were closed (The Yellowstone Park and the Gray Wolf). I got the keys over at the Holiday Inn. West Yellowstone is not fully open. The place was really great. It’s like a small house. My kids loved it. A nice place.

Flooded walkway. Needed to park in back and walk between cabins. Difficult to get towels because they checked us out early. Everything must go through the hotel 3 blocks away. The heat worked. Indoor fire place worked on a light switch. Outdoor surrounding area flooded.
