When you go to a place like Yellowstone National Park, you spend very little time in the hotel. With that being said if you are hiking and out all day, you need a good place to sleep. I stayed in the main hotel with my wife and 9-year-old daughter. We did have a room with a private bath. You pretty much have to with a young child. Overall, the room is fine. It is what you need to sleep. It was a warm day in Yellowstone, and our room was very hot. We opened the window and even had a fan running and it was hard to cool down. We couldn't turn off the radiator completely. When we called about it, they told us what to do which we had done. When it was still on, they said the heat would go off around 10pm anyway. Well, it didn't. It wasn't something we could fool around with at night cause had to get my daughter to sleep. The room was pretty warm all night. So note in the summer there is no air conditioning. One of the bigger problems is the nature of the hotel, it's older and shall we say cavernous with huge hallways. This creates an echo effect. I have to tell you it sounded like a heard of bison over our head last night. It went on till late and then again early in the morning. I'm a heavy sleeper and it woke me up. The hotel can't control people stomping around, but you have to be wary that it does echo. Also some families may want to know there are no TV's in the room. That didn't bother us, but I know parents with kids sometimes, hey you need a break.
The location itself is fantastic. You have a lot of great hiking near by and you can walk to the famous Mammoth Hot Springs which is beautiful. Also, driving wise you are not that far from the Norris Geyser basin and even the Black Sand Basin, Middle and Upper Geyser Basins (Old Faithful). We've been to the park before and even on the map it did not take as long or even close to what was indicated. I will also say, my family thought the restaurant was good. It was pricey, but what are you going to do. You're in the park, it's to be expected. It was a good menu and good food.
