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!

The room was very clean, rustic look on the quiet street. The bed was comfortable, appliances in working condition. The owner of the place was pleasant and helpful, she recommended restaurants in neighbourhood. We will stay in this motel again.

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

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
