Hi Cannon,

For lodging options in Yellowstone National Park take a look at the places that the National Park Service suggests on its website: http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/lodges.htm

Thanks!

Inside Yellowstone park, your only option for hotel or cabin lodging is through Xanterra Parks & Resorts (Full Disclosure: I work for Xanterra, currently at Death Valley, formerly Yellowstone)
http://www.yellowstonenationalparklodges.com/

Deciding which of the options they offer (or even deciding on other lodging in the "gateway towns" such as West Yellowstone MT, Gardiner MT, Cooke City MT or Cody WY, is "best" really depends on your taste and what you want to get out of your visit. Want to fish or boat Yellowstone Lake and the rivers? Lake Hotel has upscale amenities and fine dining, while Lake Lodge has more rustic (and affordable, if you're on a budget) accomodations. Likewise, Old Faithful Inn is a a beatiful, somewhat upscale and pricy historic hotel, while Old Faithful lodge is more rustic, and Old Faithful SnowLodge is somewhere in between, with modern and well appointed hotel rooms alongside rustic, affordable cabins. The other locations like Mammoth Hot Springs and Canyon Lodge have similar options, while the small locations like Roosevelt Lodge are fairly rustic and have a definite western, wilderness feel.

The time of year of your visit changes your options as well. Yellowstone is closed from early November to mid December and again from mid March to mid April, check the NPS Yellowstone site for exact dates by year. During the winter months, Old Faithful SnowLodge and Mammoth Hotel are your only options, everything else is closed. By mid to late may and through till early to mid October, all of the park's services and lodging is open.

A bit of research with your personal preferences, expectations and goals during your visit and a visit to the Xanterra site, or a google search on one of the gateway communities I mentioned, with a phone call to the lodges that interest you should help you pick the 'best' option for you.

And don't forget camping! The weather in Yellowstone in the summer varies a little day to day, but is generally mild and perfect for camping out.
