We stayed here for 1 night whilst on a road trip around the grand circle national parks.
The room was nice and very clean, and the balcony was fantastic as it had a superb view (we had a Deluxe View Room).
It is very convenient to stay in the park as it is quite a long drive form the park entrance into the park itself, so staying here enable us to get an early start!
We would recommend the Far View Lodge and would definitely stay here again!
We were exhausted after a busy day hiking and climbing and were happy to have a short drive. The room was small and needed an update. It was clean and had a wonderful view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We dined at the restaurant and found the staff and food to be very good. We enjoyed our meal in a pleasant dining room. Probably will not stay there again but it served a great purpose for a tired couple
