Visitors staying at Grant Village Lodge are able to make the rounds of the park with ease because of the handy location. The village of Grant is on the southwestern shore of Yellowstone Lake, which is twenty miles from Old Faithful. It is also near Grand Teton National Park. Grant Village Lodge offers natural surroundings with no smoking in the hotel. This also means no televisions, radios, air conditioning, or internet is supplied to visitors. Wheelchair access is possible in some of the rooms.
Grant Lodge is only open from May to October. It is a summer location, unlike some of the other lodges in the park like Old Faithful Snow Lodge or Mammoth Springs Hotel and Cabins. Visitors will want to make their reservations early in order to get a room booked.
The high range rooms offer a motel style appearance with telephones and private bath. The mid range rooms have just the shower, toilet and sink in the baths instead of tubs. All of the hotel room pricing is based on double occupancy. There are taxes and utility fees charged not included in the range pricing here: $145 to $151. There is a 6 percent tax and 4 percent utility charge added to each night once visitors receive their bill. The rates provided here can change as the park must get approval from the National Park Service each year regarding their rates. The rates are often dependent on the economy and other rates in the park for hotel accommodations.
For visitors who cannot afford the hotel or do not wish to stay at the hotel there are other options like RV and camping spots. The camp grounds have showers and bathroom facilities near Yellowstone Lake. The camping is typically no extra charge, but a permit is required. It will depend on the actual site you choose regarding cost since some will charge for the hook-ups and other amenities associated with the sites.
