Are we dividing our time OK in Yellowstone/Upper-Lower loops lodging

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites and Yellowstone experts -- my DH and I decided last week to plan a 10-day trip in mid- to late-September for Grand Tetons/Yellowstone, arriving Jackson Sept. 19 and flying home to NYC area on Sept. 28. We know we're late coming at the planning for the lodging, because a lot is sold out already.

At this late date, after staying the first night in Jackson area (not sure if we'll do Jackson the town or Jackson Hole area such as the Alpenhof) we can get 2 nights at Colter Bay in GT, and then 3 nights in Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel (with a shared bathroom) and then 3 nights either in Grant Village Lodge or Lake Lodge Cabins. Then the final night in Jackson town so we can catch a morning flight.

I've started doing a lot of reading here and there's a wealth of information to plow through but I wanted to ask if there is something else we should think about in terms of dividing up those 6 mights in Yellowstone proper. It seems the only thing available in the upper loop is Mammoth with a shared bath, and we're OK with that. It just needs to be clean. I've read here that it's a good idea to keep calling once you book, in case someone cancels. We would love the Old Faithful area. But I can't count on that kind of good fortune, right? ;-)

About us, we are in our mid-40s, relatively active -- last trip was Sept 2011 hiking in the Dolomites/Italian Alps -- but haven't gone away since then so we're a bit creaky and rusty... We're very eager to get out on the trails and do some nice hiking for several hours and some good photography.

Any suggestions are welcome. I'll keep doing research. We know we have to get those hotels booked by the end of the week.

Thanks!
