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.

I stayed at the Snowlodge with a tour group in early January, 2019. The lobby has alot of seating areas, even by the fireplace, where you can relax or gather with friends. The Front Desk staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our meals in the dining room were fantastic. One morning, I spilled syrup on my jacket and the wait staff and a manager were right there with a wet cloth that I could use. The Geyser Grill was a good place to go for a quick meal. Friendly service there too. There were nice items in the Gift Shop. My room was on the 3rd floor. One thing missing when you get off the elevator is signs directing you to which direction the rooms are. I wandered around before I finally found my room. Although it was January, my room seemed a little warm but the window opened and there was a table-top fan in the closet (the osculation was broken though). The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Choice of pillow firmness, soaps in the shower for hair/body, hair dryer in the room, refrigerator in the room. No TV. The glasses were actually the bottom half of recycled wine bottles! I enjoyed my stay there very much.

I stayed at the Snow Lodge for 4 nights in February 2019 as part of the Yellowstone Forever/Yellowstone Lodges Winter in Wonderland Winter Package. The room was large,comfortable and quiet. All of the staff at the hotel were wonderful ... always smiling, asking if you needed help and enquiring how your day was going. The food in the restaurant was wonderful ... large portions and very good.
I would highly recommend this hotel and am planning to return again in February 2020.
