The accommodations are basic but comfortable and most have private baths. Don’t confuse this hotel with its much more popular sister property near the geyser, the Old Faithful Inn. Choose from lodge rooms located in the main building, or motel-style accommodations in the Western and Frontier Cabins. A full-service dining room and quick-service Geyser Grill provide on-site dining options. This lodge is one of the two park accommodations that open for the winter season. Generally accessible in winter only by over-the-snow vehicles, this lodge attracts many cross-country skiers.

Stayed here a few days. Loved the location, was just a short walk from the visitor center and Old Faithful Geyser. The Snow lodge is much newer than Old Faithful Lodge & O.F. Inn, but built in a similar fashion with big timbers and western theme. Rooms comfortable and spacious. Be aware, there's no TV, and wifi is very slow and spotty; you are supposed to go outside and enjoy the view!
We recently stayed in Western Cabin #718; it was very disappointing. When we arriived we put food in the refrigerator only to discover a few hours later that it was not plugged in. It took 2 people to move the large heavy cabinet away from the wall to discover that the electric outlet was broken and loose in the wall. Had to run an extension cord to another outlet to run the thing and then discovered that our food had frozen overnight and there was no temperature adjustment knob inside the refrigerator. We had to pull the fridge out of the cabinet again to get to the knob on the backside. The electric outlets in the closet did not work at all. the outlet between the beds only had one working outlet. The bathroom faucet barley worked; it was old and worn out. The in-wall heater in the bathroom is a safety hazard with broken controls. Told the staff and while they apologized, they never wrote down any of the details I brought up, simply saying they would have maintenance guy check out. This cabin is worn out and needs serious attention.
