          The room we had was satisfactory, but tiny. Although we were told this was a "premium" room, it consisted of the bed and a cabinet with a few hangers and a refrigerator in it. If you wanted to sit, you literally had nowhere to sit but on the bed. this was not a particular problem for us, as we spent 14 hours a day int he park, but it might be a problem for some. On the other hand, it was far from the most expensive housing in the park.

          I enjoyed our stay at Grant Village Lodge because of it's proximity to the park. Until we actually visited I had no idea how long it would take us to get around in Yellowstone. Driving is slow. There are buffalo to dodge and people are everywhere. The accomodations were okay. Even though most parks are trying to be "green" in their accomodations, I still think it would be nice to provide complimentary wifi to the guests. The rooms were clean but were somewhat lacking in appeal. Had I stayed in these rooms outside of the park I would have been a little disappointed, but the location is this lodge's redeaming quality.

          Its been my experience that the accommodations located within the boundaries of the National Parks are expensive and in-fact the hotels in Yellowstone are some of the most expensive. Grant Village is a nice motel style hotel with the typical amenities of a hotel. None of the hotels in Yellowstone NP have tvs although several have wi-fi connections.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Grant Village Lodge Yellowstone National Park

          Simple and adequate


          Our family stayed at Grant Village in July 2003. The rooms were adequate, but nothing fancy. There was a fan in the room which came in handy since there is no AC. It was quite a haul from the parking up the stairs to our 2nd floor room.

          The restaurant was fair at best, but the bartender was friendly. When we return to Yellowstone we will try to stay at the other locations in the park.

          Perfectly adequate


          Stayed here for two nights during a visit to Yellowstone this summer. It was convenient for seeing Old Faithful and the lake region. The rooms are very simple, and small, but I really wouldn't have wanted anything luxurious in this setting. I liked not having a TV but it nearly drove my mom nuts. The lunch service at the restaurant was very slow, but we later had a nice dinner there.

          What a wonderful campground


          We spent two weeks in Grant village (August 28th through Sept 12th). The people at Grant Village were the nicest and most helpful group of people we have ever come across. They were all so polite, and made us feel so welcome. In fact all the people we encountered at Yellowstone were awesome. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were the cleanest I've ever seen in a campground. We will definitely be back again, and again. Thanks for making our vacation the best ever.

          Very Satisfied


          We spent one night at the Grant Hotel and found the accomodations to be more than adequate. The room was comfortable and so were the beds. The Bath was sufficient for our needs. As seniors, we did feel that a discount, which could be received at any other hotel, should have been allowed. The prices are a little high. We would recommend the Grant to anyone.

          Nice, simple accomodations


          We just returned from a week in Grant Village Lodge. We stayed in one of the "High Range" rooms, and had some concerns given some of the user reviews on this site, but we thought the accomodations were great.

          The rooms were very clean and spacious, and every employee from the registration desk to the waiters to the cleaning staff was courteous and friendly. There is no TV or radio, which is a blessing, not a curse.

          You do have to drive a while to get to, say, Mammoth Hot Springs, but we always got up about 6:00 AM (best to see plenty of wildlife on the way) and made our way to even distant locations quickly. Grant Village is VERY convenient to West Thumb, Old Faithful, any of the activities around the Lake, and the incredible Grand Teton National Park south of Yellowstone.

          The food in the Lake House is pretty mediocre, but filling. However, the Grant Village Dining Room is really quite good for breakfast and dinner.

          We'd definitely stay there again.

          Too Simple


          We stayed at Grant Village one night last week while visiting Yellowstone National Park. I booked through the park service. I knew and expected that the lodge would be simple but I just did not expect it to be so sparce. The walls are paper thin. As my husband said, you can hear a guy burp three dooors down. There is no TV, there is no radio. It did have a clock. There are no drawers, just a place to put down your suitcases. The private bathroom had a tiny, tiny shower. (If you are big at all, forget it!) Our little double beds had smelly comforters so we complained. We were told that we had the "best" room but they would change our comfortors. The place was completely full for the night. The dining options were very limited. The place by the lake had a pasta bar (all you can eat for $11). It was like canned noodles. Gross....just gross. We went to sleep early and got up early and left. We enjoyed the park the next day and drove back to Jackson Hole for a decent place to sleep. I'm just warning you!!

          Only if nothing else available or must have private bath


          Spent 3 nights in Yellowstone, each in different accomodations. (A mom & 2 kids, 10 & 12).

          This was our only "hotel", the others were cabins. Had to book this, as it was all that was available.

          The cabins were just as comfortable and half the price. I'd recommend the shoddy looking Canyon cabins (with bath) over Grant Village any day. And the food options are much better at Canyon.

          Grant Village for peace and quiet.


          We just returned from a 5 day stay in Grant Village in yellowstone national park. We found it to be very quiet and comfortable. It did require some drive time to see all of the sites of Yellowstone, however, that is why we went to Yellowstone (to see the sights). By being away from the Old faithful area there was less traffic and noise! The rooms were small but comfortable. Check the Xantera web site for pictures. They look exactly like the pictures. Try to get a second floor room in order to get a view of Yellowstone Lake. The only problem we had was with the food service. It is very slow at all of the hotels in the park. I will stay at Grant village again.

          Stay somewhere else


          Check in was efficient. All the staff are really freindly. The room is small and the beds v.creaky. The facilities are all a short hike away. The price was $118 a night!!

          If we stayed at the park again I'd shell out the extra money to stay by Old Faithful or stay off the park in W.Yellowstone or Gardiner. Grant Village is only convenient for the Old Faithul area but its a long drive further to get up to Norris Geyser basin and the Paintpots........ and you have to drive all the way back again. This can take a long time given the amount of traffic.

          A real plus point for Grant Village is the Dining Lodge which is tremendous value for money and has a great atmosphere.

          Grant Village a winner


          We just arrived home from five days in Yellowstone. I chose Grant Village because of its location, Yellowstone attractions not to much driving and Grand Teton attractions not to long to get to. The accommodations at GV were very clean. The rooms were comparable to moderate motel rooms. Be advised though that there is no tv or air conditioning and no smoking in any of the Yellowstone buildings. The air conditioning usually is no problem since the overnight temps get down to 40-50 degrees, but it just so happened we were there the hottest week of the summer. the room was still comfortable overnight but public buildings such as restaurants and gift shops were quite warm.A nice sized fan is in each room so the room can be comfortable for sleeping. Overall, we were pleased with GV and would stay there again.

          Last day in Yellowstone. It was only 32 when we got up, but, like yesterday, warmed up pretty fast to a high in the low 60s, and it was sunny all day without a drop of rain, so we had beautiful weather for seeing the sights.

          28 degrees when we got up today, but warmed rapidly, and hit 50 by 10:00 a.m., instead of not at all. We hit two little rain showers—one about 5:00 and one about 7:30 (roughly 80 miles apart), but the rest of the day was sunny and extremely pleasant. All the tourists said so to each other pretty much all day: "This is such a gorgeous day--- …

          Things did not go as planned today. A little background: we picked up the rental car at the Bozeman airport on Saturday and drove it 150 miles or so to Yellowstone. Yesterday morning, when we got in at about 7:00 (very cold), there was a tire pressure warning—one tire down to 28 psi (supposed to be 38). We filled it up and drove it …

          We saw the deer and the buffalo (more properly called bison), though I can't vouch for their playing; we didn’t hear much in the way of a discouraging word, but we definitely could not meet the "where the skies are not cloudy all day" requirement from the famous song. Alas, the great …
