Poor 2.0
Too little for too much.
Hotel was out of season, had to get cottages that weren’t able to connect, so family was in two different rooms. No WiFi, no phone in room to communicate with family in other rooms. I felt since there is no cellular service, WiFi would be reasonable, even though we are in the park. Paid over $400 for two rooms per night. I suggest that you get a room in Cody, WY if you are coming from the east like we were.

Poor 2.0
As Old as Yellowstone
Staff was extremely cold/rude to us. Check-in through hotels.com stated 4pm, they said check-in is at 430pm and we got our room at 505pm. Zero empathy for the inconvenience. When we finally received our keys, the woman just handed over the envelope and turned around and walked away (didn't say a word). Hotel itself is extremely old - needs to be updated. Price is not worth it ... even to say you've stayed in "Yellowstone".

No elevator. No food. No internet. Noisy.
Jeffrey, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
The Lake Hotel is a wonderful, comfortable place. We were able to find it using pre-downloaded maps on our Garmen. Google comes in and out around that area, so we could not count on that for directions. Once there though, it was a bit unclear where to go to park or what to do with the car while checking in, and the young staff were not very well informed on this. But that is really the only complaint I have as the rest of our one-night stay was wonderful. We were even able to get into the dining room for dinner even though we did not have a reservation. The scenery is lovely, complete with wandering elk. And we took a nice little walk up the shoreline to some near-by shops. All in all a very nice time. Thank you

The location is very good, in the center of the park, but it doesn't make up for the amenities you should get given the price you pay: - no WIFI (and no cell coverage) - the walls and ceilings might be made of paper, because it's VERY noisy. I definitively won't go back to this property.

Exceptional 10.0
The room was comfortable. The main dining room food was great. Service was interesting. Rooms that face the parking lot should not cost as much as the room with the view facing the lake.
