If, like us, you want to get up early to maximise your chances of seeing wildlife, better to stay within the park. Hayden Valley is just down the road, Lamar Valley a 30 minute drive. Also Canyon of Yellowstone with its amazing gorge and waterfalls is tight on the doorstep.
You check-in in the main complex where there are also shops restaurant and information centre. The lodge is about a quarter of a mile away with adequate parking although to get there you drive past a construction site which only seems to work daytime, so not an issue.
When we arrived our twin bed room was clean and comfortable. No cooking facilities and no TV. The room on the top floor had a view of ... trees, but we were only here to sleep! Appreciated the ice machine on floor three.
We stayed three nights and on the second and third nights noted that the room had not been as well cleaned as on our arrival, nothing terrible but we expect better,
The room falls between the basic cabin in the woods (enjoyable in its own way) and a good quality hotel / motel which is why I say "adequate" rather than good.
