When asking about their wifi password, I received a very rude response from the front desk. The man who answered my inquiry sassed and humiliated me and was very lazy in replying. I was shocked at their attitude to their customers. Advertises their free wifi, but the wifi only works for about 4 seconds before the connection goes down. The... More

Spent one night in suite 18 as recommended locally. Loads of space for a big family, living room had a/c, kitchen was huge. Located just outside entrance to Yellowstone Park it's the perfect way to start the day before it gets busy. Great value but don't expect 5 star luxury!

We expected a hole and was surprised for the good. Basic but clean and with style (unlike most motels we were in before). Most of the furniture are original from the 50's and 60's. The beds were comfortable and overall very good experience.

When we pulled up, we didn't know what we had gotten ourselves into. But the price was right and the reviews from other travelers were good so I opened the door. Very happy! The place is very clean and the beds were comfortable. We stayed in number 5, it has two queens in two rooms. The bathtub is deep and... More

We disagree with the bad reviews since this place was a perfect choice right next to the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park. We chose this motel mainly because of the reasonable price. In the area this was one of the cheapest option and we couldn't have a better three days in West Yellowstone. We arrived late in the evening... More

This place has the basics - hot water, 2 lights in the room. The heating system is good, easy to use. However, the TV in several rooms has terrible reception, and when we mentioned that to the front desk staff, the response was "That is not our problem, we pay for the cable to get in there, and there is...

Have stayed at this motel many times when visiting Yellowstone. This place could be described as "rustic" with its all-wood architecture and 50's furnishings, but it is absolutely charming and kind of fits the wilderness atmosphere of the region. Rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious, and carpeted, but there are no "frills" like telephones or air conditioning. Old-time screened windows can... More

5 family members met in West Yellowstone. We had booked the suite at Pony Express Motel and couldn't have been happier. It was clean, comfortable, very roomy, and for West Yellowstone, VERY reasonably priced. There are two separate bedrooms with a queen bed in each, a dayroom with two twin beds, and the living room had a hide-a-bed. We didn't... More

So, you're going to Yellowstone and need an inexpensive place to stay and you're not worried about the extras?! Then the Pony Express is for you. The Pony is a rustic motel located across the street from the actual boundary of Yellowstone National Park. It is also within a very short walk to most restaurants, shops, the Imax Theatre, Grizzly... More

I have stayed several times at this motel in West Yellowstone because I am on a very tight budget when I come here. This year, I reserved the 2 Queen kitchenette. Very good price, but the kitchen is very, very tiny. The room is definitely in need of some handy work and some upgrades. They could remove the TV and... More
