Fabulous place and very reasonably priced. The owners were absolutely wonderful to my family! They gladly accommodated my son's service dog and introduced me to their own sweet dog. Our room was fantastic and clean. The owners even suggested great places to eat in the area. I can't wait to visit their motel again!! Thank you all so much!

I picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and budget. Initially we booked 4 nights because we were going to head to Glacier National Park for 3 nights. However, a stomach bug hit me the first morning on our arrival. I sent my son out to see the sights with the rental car. Things got worse and I had to... More

Nice motel locally owned by nice couple. They don't advertise over travel sites, which might be part of the reason why they are such a good value. Call or email them, it will be well worth it. We got a 2 room suite right next to the river. The suite is small however still excellent for the money we paid... More

We stayed one night, on our way through Yellowstone Park. The hotel is an older property but very well maintained. Beautiful location overlooking the river. they have a lovely small patio in the back to relax on. We didn't need use them but they had a couple of small barbecues to use. The hotel is just a short walk to... More

When we planned for Yellowstone trip, It was starting of May, 2015. We were planning for May 20th. All park hotels were already booked by that time. So we started looking hotels outside of park. But it should be very near to entrance of the park. We tried for West Yellowstone, MT. But most of the hotels were already But... More

An older room but was very clean and comfortable. The shower head was low for me (and I'm 5'5") but that was the only issue with the room. No breakfast included but there's a gas station next door if you want to grab something cheap.

Great location in spite of the road construction going on at the North Entrance of Yellowstone! The room was very clean and well-maintained even though this is an older property. There is a nice little patio overlooking the Yellowstone River and yes, if you get up early enough you might catch the nursery herd of elk nibbling on the hanging... More

Only stayed one night while visiting YNP but would stay again. A little concerned when I called to book the room and they said that I would be in the older section but it was fine. Clean room with a comfortable queen bed. Bathroom was small but adequate. Small sink. Overlooked the Yellowstone River so the view was lovely. The... More

This is a nice place to spend a few nights because it right in town and you can walk everywhere. They were great when we checked in, even giving us a board to put under our motorcycle side stand. The room was really clean and nice but a little on the small side but still a nice place to stay.

Rooms are clean. View is incredible. Rates are reasonable. Gateway to Yosemite National Park. The patio overlooks the Yosemite River. I would come back in a second. Pets are welcome for a small fee. Rooms are non smoking which is a big plus.
