I've stayed at the Golden West Motel many times over the past 7 years during winter months and summer months. The owners and staff have always been friendly. I've stayed in various rooms and the price is an excellent value and the rooms have always been clean and tidy! The motel is close to downtown but far enough away that... More

We stayed at this hotel as it was one of the less expensive options in the area. The room was tightly cramped with furnishings. Upon check in the owners seemed quite nice, and didn't charge taxes for the stay since we paid cash. Was nice, but makes me wonder if they weren't paying the taxes for our stay at all.... More

First we would like to say we are sorry that your stay with us was unpleasant. In defense of my business I want to say the following. The gentleman that came in at 10:05 stated that they just woke up and realized that check out was 10:00 am, which we have posted in each of our rooms on the information... More

Stayed here with my wife and our boys for a couple nights of our two week fish/hike trip. I would say this was by far the best value we found during our two week vacation. The room was very clean and looked to be recently remodeled. The kitchenette was clean and completely ready for use - utensil, paper toweling, and... More

Great place to stay! Friendly staff, and one of the cleanest places I think I have ever stayed. There are a lot of things to do and see. It sure would be fun in the winter if you had a snowmobile! I will make it my spot to stay if I am in the area......

The Golden West is an awesome small motel that is neat, clean and locally owned. Your hosts, Michele and Kurt will give you the local scoop on where to eat and what not to miss in West Yellowstone. They exude Minnesota nice and will entertain you or give you your space, whatever your vacation requires. Be warned... there is no... More

This motel is in the town directly next to the west entrance of Yellowstone. It is about forty dollars cheaper than any other hotel that is not booked to capacity. This place is family run and you can feel it. Of course because the rooms are so much cheaper than elsewhere you cannot expect the same quality as a five... More

We had another great stay at the Golden West. Snowmobiling was excellent, we met people in the shop that took us places that we could not have found on our own. Michelle fed us, great home cooked meals, two nights and would not accept any payment for the food. We needed to do some work on our sleds and they... More

I have to agree with some reviewers that this is a very small simple place. After having researched many lodging opportunities in W. Y. and knowing that we were really only going to use the room to freshen up and sleep all I was looking for was a clean, safe and reasonably price motel. I guess I can't complaint about... More

First, I regularly stay in Motel 6 and Super 8, so I am not a hotel snob. But if I were the owners of this motel, I would be ashamed and embarrassed to charge $100/per night. And I relied on the reviews on TripAdvisor when I booked this hotel. Terrible disappointing to read the glowing reviews and then see what... More

We had a queen bed and the room was cramped (the TV blocked the door) but the price and service were great. It is just far enough from Main St as to not get traffic noise but you could walk to downtown area shops which is a good idea since parking is limited there. The motel only has 12 rooms... More
