Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel

Hotel in Yellowstone National Park

A classy vibe, a good variety of accommodations and a useful location make this one of the park’s most popular hotels. The main choice is between the hotel rooms in the main building and cabins out back.

The main en-suite rooms echo the historic feel of the hotel, with some rooms boasting antique-style bathroom fittings and claw-foot tubs. Rooms were renovated in winter 2018–19.

The cabins (closed in winter) are mostly duplex units, with a porch to sit on, but if you value your privacy you can request a detached cabin. Families might like the two-bedroom rustic cabins ($213) without bathroom, which can sleep up to six. The cheapest rustic cabins come with a sink but share communal bathrooms in a separate block.

Frontier cabins ($183) come with private bathroom, shower and two double beds. Some have a queen bed and a private outdoor hot tub, enclosed in a privacy fence, for $305. The hotel suites ($587) have a living room and bedroom, the only satellite TV in the park, and can sleep four in two queen beds.
