    Stunning National Park/Big Let Down Campgrounds

    Reviewed Jul 2, 2014
    by (15 reviews) , United States Flag of United States

    Location, location.... We were so excited and felt lucky to be able to stay in Yellowstone at 2 of their campgrounds without any reservations. First night we stayed at Fishing Bridge Campground at $52/night. It was a large paved parking lot atmosphere but had electrical hookups which were glad for but obviously paid for. Each camper received a pass to take a shower but if not used by 1:00 it was voided. So we didn't get our shower. Next we stayed down the road in a campground without power, showers and no hot water in the bathrooms. We both thought it was the most unattractive campground we had ever seen-AND WE WERE IN YELLOWSTONE. Could hardly believe it. The park is staggeringly beautiful but the campgrounds are in dire need of loving attention.

    This cabin was pretty nice, but it was kind of basic. No TV, fridge or microwave. Mom says we were spoiled by the Cedar Pass cabin and that this cabin is what you usually get. I was scared when the lights went out during a thunderstorm, and even though they went back on, they flickered a bunch.

    Great Location

    from

    Beautiful setting. Clean air and beautiful sunset. Quiet,comfortable. Forced to relax. Not a hotel for families. Wildlife wandering around parking lot. What a treat.

    Wonderful stay

    from

    What a grand hotel! She is well decorated and the lobby is light & bright. String quartet is a bonus if you are able to go and listen on the right night--nothing beats it! This hotel is not as crowded as the hotels/lodges at Old Faithful, most everyone who is here is staying here, not trodding through to go see Old Faithful or geysers. The view of Lake Yellowstone is awesome from the lobby and you are so close to the shore, that you can go out and view it with out much of a walk. The price is higher than expected, but if you can get a lake view room, well worth the price. It is an older hotel, but has been renovated. Don't expect TV or radio in the room, Lake Hotel has no reception and there is no cable in the area. The dining room has a view as well. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Great experience

    from

    I would highly recommend the cabins at Lake Yellowstone Hotel. Don't get them confused with Lake Lodge. It's a separate establishment. Though I do feel they are a bit overpriced, and in fact we were charged more than we originally thought, the "cabins" are peaceful and quiet, clean and comfortable. I was concerned about this since I really couldn't find any information about them on the internet. The pictures and information I did find didn't look good. But I had heard that they had been updated and so I took a chance. We spent 3 nights here and loved it. No, they don't look rustic on the outside and are painted yellow and white like the hotel, and they aren't nestled in the woods, they are clean and quiet! The one we stayed in, 614, was a single cabin (some of them are doubles). The bathroom had been completely updated with new paint and completely new fixtures. Though it was small and the furniture was rustic, it was very comfortable. We ate our meals at Lake Lodge, which is right down the road, as we felt much more comfortable in the rustic atmosphere. The Lake Yellowstone Hotel is beautiful, but just now our style. Definitely a must see though. The entire park is a must see. I could go on and on about the park. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back!!!

    Overpriced Motel

    from

    Room was ok - although nothing different to any motel.

    Rate was somewhat high but I guess they have no alternative if you don't want to camp.

    Not Happy

    from

    Our stay at the Lake Hotel in Yellowstone was not good! In fact, I left the next morning and realized I would never stay there again! I mean for $200 a night, one would expect at least a small TV to keep up on local weather/news. The beds were uncomfortable and in need of repair. The walls are so thin you cn hear someone snoring in the room next to you. There is no air conditioning so you have to sleep with the window open. That is not bad except when your room is right over the reception area door and people are coming and going all through the night. It also happens to be where the employees smoke outside the building at 3AM in the morning.

    The dining room was ok....the food would rate a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10! The service was terrible. Most of the waiters had an 'attitude' that we were a 'bother', not a customer!

    See, I know something about service. I own a supperclub in Minnesota and I would never allow my customers to be treated that way!

    My advice for any travelers to Yellowstone is to NOT stay these park hotels. $200 a night is obsurd!

    Seeing Yellowstone park in all it's beauty was breath taking..it has been everytime I've been there. It is just such a shame that these hotels have to exploit the traveling public!! And no, I will never stay at these facilites again!

    Visit with teenagers

    A beautiful trip back in time. Excellent service and food. Rooms are small but comfortable. I was traveling with my 13 year old twins and 19 year old son and they found it rather BORING. No pool, TV, etc. We were there in July and there were quite a few families with children and all were well behaved considering that a string quartet was the evenings entertainment. It would have been nice if the hotel offered board games, cards, etc. for guests to use. After our stay here, we went to Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Tetons and found the "cabins" there more suitable to families. Still rustic but family oriented. -

    Excellent stay at Yellowstone Lake hotel

    from

    The best of all possible accomodations in Yellowstone Park. While others were crowded by the 1000000 plus visitors to the Park we had quiet solitude over looking Yellowstone Lake. Each night after a gormet meal we sat in observation room, sipping brandy and listened to live music by an outstanding string quartet. Excellent service and spotless and charming rooms. Its a short drive to all major attractions in the park. Fishing was great on the Yellowstone, Lamar and Gardiner rivers.

    Buffulo were every where.

    The Hotel was pricey at near 180 per night but it is by far the best place we have stayed at in Yellowstone

    A Treat

    from

    The Lake Hotel is unique and charming. The upper floor lakeside room we had was attractive and comfortable with a really nice view of the lake and Stevenson Island. The big airy sitting room is an enjoyable place to have a drink after a day's excursion in the park, and the beautiful dining room is excellent. I think the operator must send all their best hires for their park facilites to this hotel as the food and the service everywhere were terrific. Pay the extra for the lake view; this is one of those places where it is worth it.

    A wonderful trip back in time

    from

    My wife and I have stayed at all of the Yellowstone accomodations except the Snow Lodge and the Lake Yellowstone Hotel is by far our favorite. The hotel is elegant and harkens back to a time when the railroads were king. This old Railroad company hotel has charm and grace and if you are not looking for rustic then this is the place to stay. Be sure to enjoy the lobby in the evening when someone may play the piano or just enjoy the view and a book.

    Lake Yellowstone Hotel in September

    from

    To me, this bright yellow hotel looks out of place, but it is nice inside. If you want to eat dinner here, make reservations asap. The food ws good (and is the same menu offered in other hotels in Yellowstone). There is free coffee in the morning. If you go out the Lakeside front doors and turn left and walk along the lake, there is a store with a small grill a few hundred yards down the road. There was a piano player in the large "tea" room and everyone sits there to read in the evenings.

    We stayed in late September and it was fully booked. Although we checked in very early for two nights we were given Room 131 and the clerk refused absolutely to move us. If you stay here, ask for a room toward the end of the hall. Room 131 (mentioned in another review here) is itself lovely, though a bit small. Nicely decorated, nice bathroom. However, it is two doors down from the elevator and one of the main entrances into the hotel. It was noisy during the day, but the doors are locked at 10:00. The room is adjacent to the back parking lot and overlooks the area where the bus tours disgorge their passangers.

    In September, there did not seem to be any tours or any children (to run down the hall) since school had resumed. But both of these would be quite a problem if you stayed here in summer.

    Our stay was fine, but if you have a choice, ask for an upper floor, lakeside toward the end of the halls. Enjoy.

Yellowstone principle swung into effect and when we saw cars stopped, so did we and were treated to the sight of multiple bighorn sheep grazing, climbing and traveling on the rocks far above the road. Although we have seen bighorn sheep before, this was the first time we saw such a large mob in action high up on the rock faces. What a great and auspicious start to our day. We then found a campsite at Mammoth Hot Springs campground, returned nearly to the ...
