Perfect location during COVID - our own space away with everything you need for a stay.

Everything was perfect. Clean, quiet, and the cabin had everything we needed.

These cabins are amazing, we only wish we had spent more time there! The grounds are beautifully maintained and the apartments (we had a 2 bedroom) are clean, functional and private. The courtyard was gorgeous and we were fortunate enough to enjoy the communal fire area. Absolutely beautiful and we will be back for an extended stay.

The cabins are gorgeous, but I recommend against booking through a third party site. There were several communications about checking in, COVID-19 amenity disruptions, etc. that were never passed along. Our cabin had no coffee or cups/glasses, and the s’mores kit and fire setup isn’t actually a thing right now.

I am super disappointed of this place that I was so exited to visit! I had call them 2 to 3 weeks before my arrival to be sure they were open and they confirmed to me they were open and everything was looking good for my visit! 1. We couldn’t find a place call “Explorer Cabins” 2. After we got convinced that The Gray Wolfe Hotel was the same address than the Cabins we found out that hotel was closed! So we needed to drive to the Holiday Inn to check in to our cabin. 3. The pool and hot tub that i was told were open, were closed due to Covid-19! 4. There were dishes enough for only 3 people when we were 5! That’s what our reservation was for, not for 3!!! We needed to take turns eating so everyone can have a real plate and silverware to used! 5. The fan in the bathroom was hook to the light so every time someone used the bathroom even in the middle of the night it was super noisy! The fan come up every single time someone turned the light on... 6. I should have received an email or text from Explorer Cabins or Orbitz to let me know we were going to find some changes to our reservation! But no one send a thing !

Overall the cabin was very good. Having a second chair and a kitchen table would have helped. Great time during our stay! We’d stay there again. Thanks.

The room is very cozy and I like the s’more barbecue set and get warm by the pit fire. Will definitely recommend it to my friends.

The cabins are well appointed on the inside with nice touches like yoga mat, binoculars, flashlight, books on Yellowstone. I also appreciated the bath and body products in the bathroom. They also provide s’mores kits for use at the fire pits. The cabins are located in town and it is an easy walk to stores and restaurants. We only stayed a night, but wish we would could have stayed much longer.

Check-in was bumpy, but the owner stepped in and took care of everything to our satisfaction. The cabins are well-appointed and the cabins are just a short walk to area restaurants. Overall we had a very good stay and would stay here again.

The room and property were kept clean and the office staff was very nice. The cabins are in a perfect spot adjacent to the west entrance and within easy walking distance to downtown. We highly recommend the property!

We stayed at the Explorer Cabins for the Yellowstone Half Marathon weekend. It was a perfect location, and it was so nice to have all the space, including a mini kitchen that was well stocked! We had a two bedroom cabin with a Queen and King bedroom. The cabin had a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker with filters and coffee provided, toaster, small stovetop, gas logs, two TVs with cable, walking sticks, binoculars, flash light.....to say it was well equipped is an understatement! Also, next to the bed was a charging station which was greatly appreciated!!! In the common area was a firepit to make s'mores or just to enjoy in the evenings. The cabins were quiet in the evening....there was some nearby construction during the day that was noisy, but honestly most people are in the park in the day, not in their cabin. Many restaurants are walking distance, and the Grizzly Bear Center is across the street. I would definitely recommend the cabins and would stay here again myself!

This place was amazing! The staff was over-the-top great in working with us. The cabin that we stayed in (#15) was great as well. It was so much better than staying in a hotel room. You didn't have to worry about noisy neighbors or kids running down the hallway because you were in your own little slice of heaven. The cabin had two bedrooms, one bathroom and a gas fireplace with a mini-kitchen as well. They even supplied you with a pair of binoculars, two walking sticks, a flashlight and the ingredients to make smores outside at their fire pits. Just an amazing place!!!

The one I stayed is a one-bedroom cabin, with a kitchen and living room. It is much more comfortable than staying in the standard hotel rooms, especially for people who have special needs for food, like vegetarian or Asian food.

Across the street from the Grizzly & Wolf Center and IMAX. Loved hearing the wolves howl in the evening. Convenient location to groceries, snowmobiling, and great restaurants. The residents and workers are the nicest people!

We stayed at the Explorer Cabins for one night and I wish we would have stayed longer. The amenities at this hotel is some of the best i've seen. While you are at the park you can use their hiking sticks or binoculars. Also, when you come back to the room they provide graham crackers, marshmallows, and a chocolate bar to make s'mores at the camp fire out front. The room was very nice and clean and more than enough room for two people. We also had breakfast at the hotel which was pretty good. I didn't expect the cabin to be so close to the hotel and it's not actually a cabin in the woods like you would expect but still a great cabin that I would stay at again.
