2 adults, stayed July 2012. Our room was spacious with a nice hillside view. The bathroom was a good size with a nice old fashioned bath tub. On the down side, it was very hot with no method of cooling - we did open the...More
We spent over $200 on a room in a 4-plex 'cabin' at Yellowstone Canyon Lodge and got a basic motel room. Given that our room at the Mammoth Hotel was less than $80 we figured it would be a dump. Instead we were delighted with...More
We stayed in the older part of the hotel. It feels just like stepping back in time. There was no air-conditioning, telephone, tv or WiFi, but we didn't miss any of them. Imagine my surprise when I looked out the window in the morning to...More
We stayed in the hotel and the cabins. Both are very nice. Switched from the hotel to a cabin as we didn't have a private bath and really wanted one. The cabin didn't have as great a view, but was worth it as we got...More
We stayed in the older part of the hotel. The part looks pretty much like it was when the hotel did open in the 1930s that nice. That also means no A/C and only one sloooooow lift for the whole wing.
It's ok for me...More

Roads in the park begin to open in mid to late April. The Yellowstone National Park web site lists April 20, 2018 as the opening date for the West Entrance to Madison, Mammoth to Old Faithful, Norris to Canyon. The road from the North Entrance (Gardiner) to the Northeast Entrance (Cooke City) is open year- round but may close temporarily due to inclement weather and other reasons. This road takes you through Lamar Valley, which affords you an excellent chance of viewing wildlife. Because this road intersects with the Mammoth Hot Springs area, I would have to think you'd be able to walk the boardwalks to view these incredible terraces. Lodging in the park doesn't open up until the end of April, so your best bet for lodging close to the park would be in the town of Gardiner. Even though the road to Old Faithful and the geyser basins on the west side of the park aren't scheduled to open until April 20th, don't give up hope that it's a mild snow season and that they could open up earlier. Also, pack winter clothing as weather can change dramatically there. Even if you can't get to experience all of Yellowstone, what you do experience will leave you yearning to come back. Again, if you haven't done so already, visit the Yellowstone National Park government web site. Have fun on your adventure!
