My family goes to Yellowstone at least once a year and love it. We have stayed at the Pioneer Motel for the last 4 years, it is great. The owner is always willing to help out. Every room they have is nice. Some have kitchens and some don't depending on your preference. I highly recommend!!!

We stayed four nights at the Pioneer Motel. We went late in the season so there were not many options for lodging in the park.We selected the Pioneer based on reviews and the reasonable rates.The rooms are small but typical for a 50's style motel. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. It is away from the center... More

I was really impressed with this nice motel. The owners were super friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and everything functioned just fine. Six months after my stay I got a hand written Christmas card. The next time I'm in W. Jellystone I'll be staying there.

Not having booked well in advance like JoeLafives, called night before for a West Yellowstone motel reservation. Called Alpine and next best rated but they were full. They did refer us to finally the Pioneer. Having heard W. Yellowstones high price stories, I made our reservation sight unseen. Extremely disappointed !!! Yes, it was snug to say the least, barely...

We made the mistake of not booking well in advance for our trip and so we had few choices upon our arrive in West Yellowstone. This small motel is acceptable and friendly. For the area it was budget priced (again - for the area). The room was small but clean and had a rustic feel.

This was a very cute cabin like atmosphere room. The room was very clean, decorated in a log cabin type theme. Small refrigerator/ with freezer, microwave and coffee pot. The room was small but had two queen beds, table and two chairs. Large bathroom, so we put some of our things in there. Was convenient to park entrance and downtown... More

I really wanted to rate this place higher because I enjoyed Cheryl's (owner) friendliness, but the room I stayed in with one full bed was really cramped and decidedly over-priced. While the room and bathroom were moderately clean and the little (newer) a/c unit worked well, when I showered in the morning the pipe above the shower head leaked in... More

Not a fan of West Yellowstone, except for the Grizzly Bear Discovery Center, I was looking for a place for our family of five to stay for one night while passing through on our way to Glacier NP. When I called this place, I was told there was a mobile home for rent on the premises that would accommodate us.... More

Rustic, clean, friendly, reasonable price motel in West Yellowstone. Cheryl was wonderful and very helpful! Nothing fancy but perfect for the setting of West Yellowstone! Rooms were small but not in them much.
