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

This small downtown motel offers excellent service and good value for money. The room is nice and clean. The facility is adequate and sufficient. The proprietor Cheryl was especially helpful and considerate. We look forward to our next return stay!

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

The place was very clean, except the carpet. (it had been raining a lot though) They allowed my dog, which was important to us. The bathroom was very tiny and the fixtures were very small -- felt like I was in a camper. The mirror was very old -- hard to use. Fine for sleeping in but you wouldn't want... More

Nice motel, smaller rooms but clean. Some renovations should be taken into account - we had like 1920's fridge in our room in addition to a new one - so the old one just occupies space. The owner of the place is nice and helpful.

The room was very small but was the only hotel that was less than $100 a night. Room was clean upon arrival and the woman at the front desk was extremely nice. She offered restaurant recommendations and was very friendly overall. Be prepared for a small room but I stayed for 3 nights so I did not mind it too... More

Nice motel in West Yellowstone! Off on one of the side streets, not in the middle of busy main stretch. Reasonable price compared to what the other places are charging in mid-August. Our room has two queen size beds, microwave oven and a nice size mini fridge (and TV which we never used the 5 days we were here)! Nice... More
