This motel is very old, but is clean and comfy and the room rate was a decent value. The manager was extremely nice and held our room for us, even though we didn't make it to town until 11:30 pm. West Yellowstone is a busy town in the summer and the hotels book very quickly. I booked this room through... More

We waited too long and couldn't get in to the Alpine Motel, and the Pioneer was only one we could get for three nights while visiting Yellowstone National Park. The first night we were in a kitchen unit with a king bed, but had to move for the next two nights. The kitchen unit was marginal and had food crumbs... More

This little motel is definitely a throwback place but it's very cute and clean. The hot water takes a few minutes to get to your room which I think, just adds to the charm and the whole experience of the place. It's near the center of town but it's far enough away to nice and quiet. There's a nice coin... More

At the peak of the travel season, this was one of the only motels available at the time of our visit. The owner, Cheryl, was very nice and accommodating. although room was very small and dated, it was clean and satisfactory for a stay while visiting Yellowstone National Park. Wi Fi was provided though slow.

I agree with most of what was said by other reviewers. This is very good value and a good fit for the feel of yellowstone. It is small, rustic , quiet, homey and cute. With nice touches like handmade quilts and curtains and a lot of wood. We got a family unit with a kitchen, and two rooms which comfortably... More

This is a very rustic motel. Accommodations are cramped. Rooms are okay, clean. Bathroom could use some modern updates. Electrical extension cords running all over the place, don't know if the meet standards but did not have any problems. There are some cabin style units which offer a bit more space and would recommend. The price was right and the... More

Nice mom and pop motel. It has a rustic, retro, and cabin like quality. It is dated, but that is what I like about it. If you want brand new, go to the boring chains. They (chains) have their place, but for this kind of trip, the mom and pops are perfect! The room was small, but it was super... More
