          Great location - Dining facilities could be improved though.

          Great setting - peaceful and beautiful. Comfortable, clean rooms. Cafeteria style restaurant serving homely food - but it could have been hotter and popular choices ran out very early on. The Lake Hotel is a short walk away, but dinner reservations seem to be impossible - it books up over a year ahead. There is a diner in the village though and a general store - both well kept. This is without doubt my favourite area of the Park - and the best place to stay if you want to be within the Park. The cafeteria style dining grated on us a little after three nights though - definitely time to be moving on!

          Cheap bed for a few nights

          First of all, before booking a hotel at Yellowstone National Park, keep in mind that Yellowstone is one of the MOST popular destinations ever for a summer vacation, and you need to book your lodging about a year before you actually go to Yellowstone, if you intend to stay in the park.

          That being said, Lake Lodge is a step up from camping, and one of the cheaper lodging options within the park. Our cabin had a double bed, a small bathroom, and a small table.

          The bed despite being described as a "double' bed is barely a double bed, and both of us could not comfortably fit into the bed, so to solve that dilemma, one of us had sleep on one of our camping cots.

          The shower had seen better days, but it was functional, and the hot water temperature was amazing.

          Basically Lake Lodge cabins are camping meets sleep-away camp in my opinion. For us, it was fine, I mean, you're at Yellowstone National Park... so why would you want to spend all day in your lodging? So as a place just to crash the night, the cabins were fine, and we would stay again, although I think we'd double check the bed that we're given for the night.

          The lodge itself, is beautiful, it's a big wooden building with two fireplaces and a bar and the cafeteria. We ate at the cafeteria for every meal, the breakfast was amazing, and the food choices were good, and affordable, with a great many options.

          If you just want a cheap place to crash for a night without worrying about setting up a tent or whatever, Lake Lodge is perfect, if you're looking for a "dreamy" Yellowstone vacation, I'd recommend skipping on Lake Lodge and checking out Lake Yellowstone or the Old Faithful lodge, but for us, this did it's job perfectly.

          One step up from camping

          We stayed in the Pioneer Cabins two nights. We had a double bed and bathroom. We viewed this as one step up from tent camping. So for us it was tolerable. The cabins had been getting the sun during the very hot afternoon and ours was uncomfortably hot. We opened all the windows, then went to eat dinner. When we came back the outdoor temps had cooled down a lot and with the door open and the fan going the room gradually became bearable. By the middle of the night the fan needed to be turned off, the windows closed and blankets put on.
          We had plenty of room. There was a small closet, a small table, the sink was in the room without a counter, the bathroom was small. This is not luxury. But it did provide shelter and convenience. The bed btw was not able to handle both of us, we took turns sleeping on the floor.

          The lodge itself was fantastic. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the old wood lodge. The view of the lake from the porch was quiet and peaceful. The cafeteria was nice, it never seemed crowded and the food was good. Except for the bed this was a great place to stay.

          This was our only stay inside the actual park. The Lake Lodge Cabins are part of the Yellowstone National Park Lodges and like the food service in the park, I would not recommend these, especially for the price.
          We stayed in a run down cabin that was part of a duplex unit and the walls were so thin we could hear the people next door to us talking, late into the night. The main room, with 2 beds, is large, but the bathroom is tiny. When we pulled back the sheets, they looked clean but for the dirt "crumbs" all over them. Yuck! The the next morning the construction crew working on renovations out in front of the cabins started in at 6:30am. Overall, not a great nights sleep. Thank goodness we were only here for one night!

          Pleasently suprised


          The cabins here were the only accommodations available for a last minute change in our vacation. We planned to stay only one night at Grant Village, but the construction of the East Entrance changed our mind on driving back and forth. We like nice accommodations and were a little concerned about the cabins. When we arrived after a long day of exploring we were pleasently surprised that they were clean, renovated and quiet. Two rooms created one cabin and shared the bathroom wall so that all you heard was maybe running water. The bathroom was renovated and clean as were the towels and sheets. Small but comfortable enough and the main hotel was only a short walk away. Make sure to get dinner reservations early or else plan on eating in a diner type or cafeteria. The negetives were that the carpet was dirty, very dark and muddy outside, and probably a little small for more than 2 people.

          Renovated cabin


          One row of cabins had been painted and stood out from the others as we drove up. The inside was renovated with a raised beamed ceiling and a new bathroom. Walls were also updated. It was a cozy place to stay . We had reserved in Feb but didn't know some had been renovated. You might want to request a renovated cabin.

          Great view and lounge


          We did not stay in this hotel (we stayed at Grant Village), but we immensly

          enjoyed spending the evenings here. After a long day driving around the

          park, we'd come here to order a drink from the bar and stretch our

          legs on the front porch and sip our drink while sitting on rustic rocking

          chairs and watching the sun go down on the lake while wild bisons

          lazily grazed ahead of us. Nothing to beat that view ! Later as it grew

          cooler, we'd go into the lobby/lounge and laze around in front of the

          fireplace before retiring to our hotel at 10.

          Never ever


          The "western cabin" at the Lake Lodge is a bad place to stay. It's pretty expensive and it's not worth it. The staff was friendly but incompetent. Better stay in West Yellowstone or one of the hotels.

          Fair Place for the Price


          For $62 per night, I did not expect much. These are old cabins - three building together. I believe they were built in the 1930's. I stayed in one with a single double bed. The bathroom was very small with even a smaller shower. The lodge itself, a short walk away serves all meals, has a bar and is a nice place to see in the evening. You cabin will not have a phone or TV by the way. For about 30 - 40 more, you could stay at the Yellowstone Lake Hotel which is close-by.

          For $62 per night the Lake Lodge cabins was a good value though.

          Lake Lodge cabins-we know why they were inexpensive!


          The Lake Lodge cabins were very inexpensive and one can see why. The cabins were in strips of three and each had no porch or outside space of it's own. The room was clean and did have it's own restroom with shower but it felt clausterphobic at times. One redeeming feature was a table with chairs in the room. On the Saturday night we were there, the parking lot and grounds were deserted and almost felt desolate but we did have the opportunity to have deer right up near our parking space. Would most likely not go back.



          I am compelled to write this review. We thought they might be bad from the reviews but we were willing to give it a shot for 90.00/night and little else to choose from in the park on a Saturday night. Don't even consider it. These "cabins" are nothing more than what we Southerners would consider a "trailer park" atmosphere. The inside had old broken furniture, faded corny fishing bedspread, and a water heater 3" from the toilet. It was a DUMP! My husband and I decided to spend $180.00 instead to stay in the Lake Hotel so we didn't ruin a beautiful trip.

          Xanterra needs to bulldoze these and start over and quit extorting money from unsuspecting tourists on a budget. If you don't have the money to stay someplace else buy a tent or sleep in your car!

          Loved the cabins at Lake Lodge!


          What do they expect for an unbelievable price???? Everything in the Park was beyond reasonable. We thought they were adorable! We wanted something a little rustic, above camping out, but not like a Hotel in a city! After all, we came to see nature!

          AND NO TV'S PLEASE!!!!!!

          Lake Lodge Cabins - an experience to skip


          The "cabin" at the Lake Lodge was no more than a run down motel room - very disappointing. Just a few days before we stayed at the Lake Jackson Lodge in the Grand Tetons in one of their "cabins" - a world of difference (and also a slightly higher price). The Lake Lodge is in bad need of some updating and cleaning of its cabins.



          I felt the rooms were comfortable but they had old fixtures, ugly burnt orange colored doors and really overpriced for what we got. We paid $124.00 for an average to below average room.

          Today, we visited the Norris Geyser Basin. We stopped off at the Museum of the Park Ranger first. We learned that most of the Bears in the Park are in the higher territory where there is an abundance of worms - that made me feel a bit safer. We also learned that bison can run at 50 miles per hour - so now, I am scared again as there are far more …

          Day 1

          In the morning we headed to Lander passing Red Canyon along the way. This is a gorgeous valley. We saw it in January when the elk were there. Even more beautiful with the green grass and red rock contrast. We stopped at the store in Lander for breakfast and other food.

          Today started again with breakfast in the cabin. When everyone had gotten moving, we piled into the van and headed out to the Canyon Visitors Center again. Here we purchased what we needed for lunch.

          Our first scenic stop was at the Norris Geyser Basin. We did some hiking then headed out to find a picnic spot for a light lunch.
