There are many hotels where you can see wild buffalo grazing just outside your door. That was a highlight for our kids, although it could be kind of a dangerous situation. I'd agree with the other reviews that maintenance is below average for this property but for our visit everything was working.
We stayed here on a family visit to Yellowstone and it's certainly nicer than camping in the park! The beds were quite comfortable and it's a real cabin experience. Comfortable front porch with nice chairs for reading. The wifi was basically unusable during our visit - they have satellite internet and seemed to have some other problems as well. We planned ahead and brought food to cook in the full kitchen - there aren't many places to eat in the area. I'd recommend bringing food although the check-in area does have some food for purchase.
The location is a great way to see the NE part of the park and the Lamar valley - lots of wildlife. The bear tooth highway is a terrific drive into Silver Gate also, probably more scenic than many places in the park.
For cyclists, the road outside the park is in great condition for cycling with a nice wide shoulder, terrific views and some decent elevation gain.
