Except for the outside entrance, the hotel was modern, clean, comfortable, Had a great pool, and provided a decent breakfast. The location is convenient to restaurants and other activities in West Yellostone, MT, but not convenient to sightseeing in Yellowstone National Park.

Was adequate for our purposes. We just need a comfortable plsce to sleep and shower. Beds were comfy. Blow dryer worked but the button kept sticking. Continental breakfast was not good. We just got coffee each morning and ate locally at McDonalds or Running Near Pancake House which was awesome!

i just spent a week in West Yellowstone. Made trips into Yellowstone every day to hike, see the wildlife and see the amazing geological formations. We stayed at the Kelly Inn. Great room, great price. The hotel is well located for access to activities in and around West Yellowstone. I could throw a rock and hit the park entrance. Staff... More

My husband and I stayed at Kelly Inn five nights in June celebrating our 20th anniversary. We requested a room with a bear peeking in the window because that was the first thing we fell in love with about the hotel when we drove by during our first visit to West Yellowstone last September. We were very excited that this... More

We came to the Kelly Inn because our other reservation was canceled. The place was mediocre. The rugs were stained.The rooms in the hotel had that musky old smell to it. The place has one positive. It is right next to the entrance to Yellowstone. Other than that, I don't have a lot of positive things to say. We ended... More

We're sorry that your other hotel reservation, that was made by a large online travel agency, left you stranded in our town with no hotel room. However, we were glad that we were able to accommodate your lodging needs at the last minute in a time when we are usually completely sold out. We're disappointed to hear that you did... More

quiet, nice rooms, anything you want breakfast, pleasant front desk personnel. We normally don't have our room serviced if we only stay 2 nights. They left a basket outside our door with fresh bath towels, soap, shampoo etc. nice touch.

There are a lot of reasons why this hotel could be a 100 per cent tecommendation. Very large rooms and beds (ours was a double king), Stylish wood cabin furniture, excellent location to park entrance and shops / restaurants in town. Good pool. So-so breakfast with a Mexican touch. Can you blame their price policy when they already sell out... More

I’ll keep this short and sweet. Stayed 2 nights June 29 and June 30 while visiting Yellowstone. Inn is spotlessly clean with a terrific staff. Great amenities including an indoor pool, sauna and spa, in room refrigerator, outside sitting area with fire pit. The rooms are very nice, comfortable bedding and very clean. If we are back in the area... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. You are literally a few blocks away from the West Yellowstone entrance. Also just across the street from the Grizzly/Wolf discovery center and IMAX theater. Also within a pleasant walk to shopping and restaurants. West Yellowstone is small, but you are right in the heart of it and close to everything.... More
