Athough the rooms are small and dated, the central location in northwest yellowstone to see the hot springs and wildlife cannot be beat. The restaurant was a big disappointment:rather mediocre food and spotty service since the season quickly winds down after Labor Day. Many guided...More
My mother, sister, and I traveled to Yellowstone on vacation this past August. We stayed in cabin that had its own hot tub. It was amazing! We knew going into this part of the trip that the cabin only had a queen size bed, but...More
We stayed in the cabins. It was very comfortable and exceeded our exceptions. The location is nice. Plus it has a great dining room. We had dinner and lunch there. They were both good. I particularly enjoyed one of the sampler with pita and a...More
This is a great place to stay if you are in the Mammoth Hot Springs area and don't want to drive to Gardiner, Montana (even though it is only 10-15 minutes away). This grand, historic hotel is convenient to the hot springs (200 meters away)...More
I have been to yellowstone many times in the past, and was familiar with Mammoth Springs. I was fond of the fact that they have a resident herd of Elk on premises which gaurantees frequent and close sightings of Elk.
But, what I wasn't expecting...More

Roads in the park begin to open in mid to late April. The Yellowstone National Park web site lists April 20, 2018 as the opening date for the West Entrance to Madison, Mammoth to Old Faithful, Norris to Canyon. The road from the North Entrance (Gardiner) to the Northeast Entrance (Cooke City) is open year- round but may close temporarily due to inclement weather and other reasons. This road takes you through Lamar Valley, which affords you an excellent chance of viewing wildlife. Because this road intersects with the Mammoth Hot Springs area, I would have to think you'd be able to walk the boardwalks to view these incredible terraces. Lodging in the park doesn't open up until the end of April, so your best bet for lodging close to the park would be in the town of Gardiner. Even though the road to Old Faithful and the geyser basins on the west side of the park aren't scheduled to open until April 20th, don't give up hope that it's a mild snow season and that they could open up earlier. Also, pack winter clothing as weather can change dramatically there. Even if you can't get to experience all of Yellowstone, what you do experience will leave you yearning to come back. Again, if you haven't done so already, visit the Yellowstone National Park government web site. Have fun on your adventure!
