1 Grand Loop, Yellowstone National Park, WyomingMap
Just inside the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park, the historic Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, established in 1911, is a popular choice for visitors exploring the northern region of the park. Teddy Roosevelt and other early visitors often began their park exploration at the steaming Mammoth Hot Springs, limestone terraces adjacent to the hotel. Elk frequently graze outside the hotel around the parade grounds of what was once Fort Yellowstone. Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is one of two Yellowstone hotels open during both summer and winter seasons. (The other is the Old Faithful Snow Lodge.) This hotel offers a wide range of accommodations, from suites to standard hotel rooms to cabins. Standard rooms and cabins offer minimal amenities but lots of historic charm. Some have tubs only, some have showers only, and some share a bathroom down the hall. Like all park accommodations, they are non-smoking and reflect the natural surroundings of Yellowstone; televisions, radios, and air conditioning are not available. Internet service is available in the lounge and restaurant. Wheelchair accessible accommodations are available on a limited basis.

Lovely, historic park lodge with fab location, basic accommodationsFlag review
We loved this property, partly for its fab location near the Mammoth Hot Spring terraces and the North Entrance, and partly because every evening a herd of elk came to graze on the lawn right in front of the hotel. Fabulous! The place is historic and feels old and dated in many ways. The rooms are comfortable but simple and basic, with beds and a sink. No TV (none of the park lodges have TV in the rooms). Our room didn't have a bathroom; there were shared bathrooms and showers down the hall. No air conditioning, just fans. The lobby has a fireplace and lots of tables and armchairs, where we played cards. There are also tables and chairs on the front patio, which is a good place to sit with a book and watch for elk. What a wonderful and storied place, with magnificent surroundings. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
