#1 of 5 hotels in Yellowstone National Park
GreenLeaders Gold level
The Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and Cabins—named after nearby springs—offers a warm welcome to summer and winter visitors. The hotel recently underwent major renovations of the public spaces and guest rooms. The hotel as it stands today was built in 1936, while retaining a wing of guest rooms originally built in 1911, and features its signature Map Room containing a large wooden map of the United States constructed of 15 different kinds of wood from nine countries. In the evening, relax with a drink in the newly renovated Map Room which features a full bar and enjoy the musical delights of a live pianist. Guests enjoy a variety of in-park accommodations as well as the chance of spotting elk grazing outside the hotel.

Xanterra needs to stop hiding behind the "It's a National Park" excuse and spend some money on this place. We originally reserved a cabin for 3 nights, but went down to two after the first afternoon. There is literally NO cell service if you have AT&T. And, before you judge me for being on my phone, all I wanted to do was call to change our reservation in Jackson Hole. I COULD NOT CALL. AT ALL. The worst part was the woman behind the check in desk told me there was service at the Post Office. I ran there, in the pouring rain, and the man at the Post Office told me if I climbed up the hill, I MIGHT get service. The reality was I didn't have any service until we got to Moose Junction in Wyoming. The internet was so slow, I couldn't even get it to load the website of the hotel in Jackson. I finally used Whats App to call my son in LA, and he called and changed the reservation for us. There is no phone anywhere. Knowing what it's like, the hotel should have some sort of option available. They have no courtesy computers and no phones available for anyone. The rooms are nice, but the trash/recycling has to stay inside because of the animals. No one came in the time we stayed to clear our room or empty the trash. We had planned to use the hotel as a base to drive around Yellowstone, but that was a huge mistake as the road between Tower Roosevelt and Canyon is closed for the whole year, so you have to backtrack and only use the road to Mammoth Hot Springs, which is no picnic. All in all, Yellowstone is beautiful, amazing, and worth a trip, but I would never stay at the Hot Springs again.

Built on the old Fort Yellowstone space right at the foot of the Mammoth Hot Springs terraces, this is a really gorgeous place to stay. It’s very close to the north entrance of the park (people who get car sick take Dramamine before driving up from Gardiner, the town at the base: the road up is very twisty and vertiginous). Also, this spot is the lowest in the park at 6400 ASL which is high enough to make the air feel thin to some of us lowlanders. (The highest spot in the park is 8200 so it gets more extreme). There is an elevator, though. We stayed here in May in the hotel, just before the season kicked in with Memorial day so it wasn’t a zoo yet. It’s a very nice hotel, historic but updated, clean and mostly quiet, depending on your room. We began in 222 on the second floor which had a corner so two windows, but was somewhat cramped . The bathroom had a terrible shower: a rain head over a claw foot tub, with a faucet so bizarre it has an instructions card hung on it so you can figure out how to use it. I know rain heads are the thing right now but I hate them: if you don’t want to wash your hair, there is no way to get your head out of the water fully, since the shower head is mounted directly above you near the ceiling. In order to get water on your body you have to contort and lean. There is no pressure to them so it’s like a trickle of water dribbling over you. In this claw foot arrangement, there was also a fall hazard, since the tub is a few inches up off the floor and has only a shower curtain surround, so there is nothing to hold onto when trying to lift a food to wash it. Stepping out requires stepping up way over the tub rim then way down to the floor. I don’t recommend this for anyone who isn’t fully mobile and agile. The temperature was hard to control too, and the floor was freezing all the time. Soap is liquid, with shampoo and conditioner and body lotion all themed together in a mild floral lemon balm sort of scent. Towels sufficient, heater worked fine but there is no air conditioning in the hotel. It was high of 55 degrees while we were there so that wasn’t a problem but it could be muggy even then and we had the windows open at times. The first night was nicely quiet, once the people below us went to bed. Up to then the voices boomed enough that we could hear them easily, though not clearly, in our room. The second night, new visitors with active kids were put above us and even in mid-afternoon the cacophony of them running back and forth and jumping off the beds ( we think there was a game being played with the kids running and the parents chasing, it was so loud) was unbearable. We asked to be moved and the hotel staff very generously accommodated this by putting us in 406 on the top floor. Again, only voices of neighbors came through and of course people in the hall were very loud, plus the doors slam shut but otherwise it was great. This room also had a stall shower, still with the hated rain head but far safer and easier to use. It also had half again the floor space and a closet. Be warned: NO TV IN ANY ROOM. Wifi is spotty and almost no phone available anywhere in the park. There were mini fridges but no microwaves in the rooms. Coffee makers were provided with a generous four each caff and decaffeinated pouches. There is also a coffee shop and bar down in the Map Room off the lobby that opens fairly early and is open until 10 pm. Staff were all super, friendly, efficient, informative. They were also rather overworked when we were there, between computer issues and inventory just before busy season started, but no one ever let it upset them. There is a gift shop right off the lobby that is open 8am-8pm, and while there was plenty of parking for our visit, I can see it being a problem in peak season. They have a level with conference rooms, for people who are in need of that. Looked well equipped, definitely a pleasant old-world vibe. Overall, it was a very good stay. I will review the onsite restaurants separately. There are two on this lot, Mammoth Hot Springs dining room and on the other end of the same building, the Mammoth Hot Springs Terrace Grill.

The hotel room was excellent. Internet is terrible. They need to get their act together and upgrade the system. We don’t watch movies or play games but we use internet for restaurant ratings and menus, park services, weather reports, keeping in touch with family, sharing photos, checking our home security system, etc. Food choices were very limited at Mammoth Hot Springs so we drove to Gardiner, MT for two meals - nice short drive. Wonderland Cafe was delicious.

Stayed 3 nights in one of the “stand-alone” cabins (B29). Worked great for just the 2 of us but don’t think a family, especially with teenagers, would fit very well. We hardly had room for our one suitcase. The beds were more like full-size to me. The bath had a shower only. An adjustable handle would be nice since the shower is so small. NO coffeepot ( we took our Keurig). Limited outlets. There is NO Television OR Air-conditioning. We had NO cell service or WiFi in our cabin (AT&T). Be sure and take magazines, books, cards, games. Mammoth is at the very north end of the park. If they hadn’t canceled our Old Faithful Inn reservation I would probably just recommend staying there. It cost a little more but was more centrally located. We didn’t see any of the elk people talk about at the hotel but there was a herd of Buffalo right in the front one morning. The grill was the only thing open when we were there. They really should expand their menu. You’re kinda at their mercy for now. We did go into the city outside the park for lunch one day but the options there are limited too. These cabins are the most economical place to stay in the park. I would stay here to experience staying in the park vs the drive to and from outside.

Yes, the cabin was small with me and my 2 young adult children, and 2 queen size beds. The bathroom was also very small. Eveythinf was very clean, and we parked right out front. But you cannot beat the location as a way to see the park, and looking out the window and seeing elk cannot be beat. Also we saw bison, bison calves, and even more elk all around the hotel grounds. Food options were limited with just the grill open for takeout. We were there mid may, so I'm guessing more things will open as the season progresses. We really appreciated the cabins as part of our Yellowstone experience.
