My two sons and I stayed in one of the cabins. I do not think we got our money's worth for the cabin we stayed at. You have to call every morning to have the room cleaned. One of the days they did not clean our room after we put in a request in the morning. They seemed off put when I called in the evening for them to clean the bathroom and dishes. We did not use the fire pit in the evenings because of the mosquitoes. I did feel the cabin was anything special to warrant the price for the cabin.

The cabin was wonderful. Small refrigerator and kitchenette. Pool, hot tub, washing facilities right next door. Bicycles available to run around town. Entrance to the park is just around the block. Fire pit for smores in the evening. Guest services were excellent offering nightly information and beverages. Could not have asked for anything more!

My wife and I bunked down at the Explorer Cabins for a family reunion. Let's start with the positives: - the cabin was spacious and relatively comfortable - the front desk staff (at the hotel that manages the cabins) was friendly and efficient - the location is extremely convenient for access to Yellowstone National Park - the cabin had kitchen facilities with a stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator Now the not-so-positives: - only one chair in the cabin, had to move one in from the deck for us to both sit down - breakfast was pedestrian at best (my adult kids all said appalling). We ate after 8:30 our first morning only to find most of the food items completely gone. What was left was watered-down OJ and a single helping of oatmeal that could have replaced hardening cement. Thank God for a fantastic neighborhood bakery - When two attempts to call the front desk (20+ unanswered rings each time) failed, we left printed messages on two successive mornings for housekeeping to replenish the empty shower gel and conditioner dispensers in our bathroom. It never happened. The above may sound trivial, but when I'm paying $374 + tax per night for accommodation I expect much better. Have stayed at 4* and 5* hotels around the country for less than that and had much better experiences

I booked these cabins (2 room with a bunk bed) because the reservation assistant told me they can accommodate a bigger family and could substitute for 2 traditional hotel rooms; however, the cabins are too small and space is very tight. I felt like I was in small economy hotel in Europe! I wish I would have just booked 2 separate rooms instead. The cabins are cute on the outside but pretty small inside. They come with a very small kitchenette. We had to squeeze by each other to get around. The size is comparable to shipping crate houses. The location is good if you can't get lodging inside the park. Came with acceptable cleanliness. Overall, it was not that bad, but it wasn't that great either. As always, pictures on the website looks much better than in real life.

S’mores and more!!

My wife and I recently took our 4 & 6 year old boys to Yellowstone and we stayed at Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone. What a great cabin! We dealt with Krisan, who was very friendly and accommodating. After check-in, the front desk even called to make sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was spacious, clean, and our favorite part was the fire pit outside - they even provided two S’more kits for our boys. We had a great time there! Leif Anderson
