It’s quirky and creaky, but this historic (1903) lodge is still worth a stay. One reason is the location: You can slip out during the early-morning hours to enjoy rare solitude at Old Faithful, and from here, you’re a quick drive from the majority of the park’s other geothermal features.
The other reason is the architecture. Considered to be the world’s largest log structure, the Inn uses tree-trunks in astonishingly creative ways (like the forked log railings of the balconies rising up from the hotel lobby). Rooms in the oldest, most authentic part of the property don’t offer private baths (guests there use shared facilities) but accommodations in the newer wings have full bathrooms and even sitting areas (in the suites).
