The nicest of the four Park Gate Lodges properties (the others are Yellowstone Park Hotel, Holiday Inn West Yellowstone, and Gray Wolf Inn & Suites), the Explorer Cabins offer a high-end, condo-style experience steps from downtown. The roomy cabins are tucked into a young evergreen forest, and each has a patio and kitchen. They come with giant flatscreen TVs and marble bathrooms, and most have gas fireplaces. Community fire pits are dotted around the property, and guests have access to the Holiday Inn’s game room (stocked with Xbox and Netflix).
