Last week I visited Yellowstone in the Winter for the first time. I drove to the park and stayed at the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel. My room was large and comfortable. A great lobby with a large fireplace and a Map Room to one side...More
A nice historical hotel that shows its age, but still creates a wonderful atmosphere of adventure. The lobby and common areas were recently renovated which create a touch of modernity that does clash a bit with historical theme. The Map Room is a great area...More
This is a very old structure. For it's age it is average. There has been a recent remodel of the "Map" room where there is a bar, entertainment area and large sitting area. It is very nice. the rooms are old fashioned, radiator hear, old...More
Absolutely loved the elk hanging around the grounds. We didn't get to see a grizzly bear though. The Hotel was very comfortable and it gave us a real country type of escape. Incredible we were on top of a super volcano!
Everything you need. Nothing you don't. The campus of the MHS Hotel is great. Grand, classic hotel with spartan rooms that are perfectly befitting of the nation's premiere national park. The dining room is solid, the skating rink is charming, and the ski shop can...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!
