We arrived in West Yellowstone for one night and reserved Kelly Inn West primarily based on TA reviews and their pet friendly policy. This was our first experience staying in a ground floor room with an exterior entrance, and our cocker spaniel was very pleased to not have to negotiate hallways or an elevator! The room was clean and well... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with others on TripAdvisor. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our hotel. Our first floor rooms are certainly in high demand with pet owners due to the convenience of the extra outside door. It's a pity that more hotels are not built with pet owners in mind any more due...

This hotel is conveniently located near the main intersection in West Yellowstone so it is within walking distance to anything you might want to do in this very small town. The rooms are clean and large and the king double room worked very well for our family of three. The pool and hot tub area is nice as well. Breakfast... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to share your experience. Because Yellowstone sets new visitation records nearly every year, most hotels here are sold out early all summer. A hotel reservation system is like a huge puzzle matching rooms and dates to full capacity. We always recommend that potential guests call the hotel... More

Lacking many amenities - no electric shower vent; missing 2 separate sinks; missing a chair; no tables to place personal items; exercise gym in a separate hotel; breakfast had frozen scrambled eggs and biscuits which were thawed out. Clothing bars were half way down the wall. Definitely not worth $250.00 a night. Suggestion: many remodeling upgrades to be on same... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your recent visit. We're sorry to hear that you felt that we didn't compare to an Embassy Suites hotel based on the rates in peak season.

Had a great 3-night stay with our 2 grandsons. This hotel is very clean. It has a rustic feel and isn't like staying in every other hotel. The room was done like a log cabin, from the beds to the furniture. The free breakfast was good with lots of choices. Only thing missing was fruit and maybe some yogurt. The... More

We stayed here after having to get ou obey back at another dirty hotel in the area and it was great to see a clean, fresh room! The pool and jacuzzi were great in the evenings. Nice location and a good value compared to what's available in the area. The breakfast left something to be desired but it's free so... More

We booked this hotel in the middle of the night to escape another nite at The Old Faithful Inn. We did not really have a chance to find out much about it because we had no internet service at Old Faithful Inn. We were not thrilled with the price of $260 ($295 with taxes) but we were desperate. It is... More

If you can't stay in Yellowstone park, West Yellowstone is the place to be! The Kelly Inn is a great location within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We had a ground floor room. It was quiet and we loved the door right out to our car. It would be perfect for those with pets. The hotel was clean... More

A Memorial Day trip to Yellowstone is relaxing and peaceful--that is, until you run into a bear or haven't taken a shower in days. To bypass all these unfortunate events, we opted for a hotel. Even though we had to pay the steep, in-season rate, we had high hopes for a night of all the amenities camping can't provide: hot... More

Thank you for sharing your personal experience from last Memorial Day weekend. We would probably not ever characterize a Memorial Day trip to Yellowstone as relaxing or peaceful due to the thousands of visitors who arrive then and the fact that it actually snowed on Memorial Day 3 of the last 4 years, However, this last Memorial Day was far...

Let me start by saying the hotel has a pool, jacuzzi, breakfast and is in an ideal location. I didn't utilize any of the above so this is just based on the room used by our family as a gateway to Yellowstone. The halls smell like body odor. It smells like a dirty locker room. The rooms are comfortable and... More
