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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this hotel from start to finish. Wonderful location, great staff and really nice accommodation.
Convenient location for Old Faithful geyser (a two min walk away) as well as the Education Centre and restaurants in the three hotels on the complex.
Is it really that much to ask to have a wooden floor instead of the ancient carpet ?
Is it really not possible to have a driveway that is not a dirt road riddled with deep pot holes ?
Do you really have mattresses that are that old ?
The location is so great, yet still nobody apparently feels inclined to try harder.
My advice: make a road trip to the Badlands National Park and take a long look at the cabins there. You will see what I mean.
