The rooms in these six lodge buildings, all dating back to the early 1980s and renovated in 2016, are nothing to write home about—most large tours base themselves out of Grant, which perhaps explains the one-size-fits-all feel. But the motel-style accommodations have much nicer furnishings than your standard roadside stop; you’re only a short stroll from Yellowstone Lake; and West Thumb Geyser Basin is a 5-minute drive away. There’s no grand lobby, but all buildings have common rooms with couches and tables. Some rooms have lake views.
