Only minutes from Yellowstone entrance. Nice, clean room. A little tight with all of our luggage, but we honestly didn't spend a lot of time in the room. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was basic, but good. Pool was also a hit with the kids. Would stay again, especially for location.

Stayed 3 nights 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. Rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and changes every day. Although there are less expensive rooms in the area, you get what you pay for. After a long... More

Kelly Inn is the only place we stay we when we come to visit my parents in West Yellowstone. The room rates are bit expensive, however; the front desk gals are always friendly, the rooms are quite and nicely decorated and the house cleaning staff are very polite and they do an excellent job cleaning the rooms. If you can... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during our visit to Yellowstone. The location was perfect, the rooms were very clean and the place had a cozy feel. We would recommend this hotel. Oh yes, also friendly staff and breakfast was not bad.

The Kelly Inn is a nice place to come back to after visiting Yellowstone N.P. for the day. The room was clean and comfortable and the Inn as a whole is a nice place. All the staff I met were very friendly and helpful. I noticed the staff working around the Inn, work hard to keep the place nice. For... More

Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us. At this very busy time of year, when rates are at their highest, we start to receive many more reviews focused purely on value for the price paid compared to other more accessible vacation locations in the country. It is refreshing to hear from our guests that also put value on... More

We payed a fortune for two rooms, obviously jacked up in price as the hotel booked up. We had no choice as there was little left. I figured it would at least be a really nice stay for that one night. However, it ended up being entirely mediocre with cheesy decorations, an odd smell in the hallways. We were very... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience. Since you mentioned that you have stayed in other towns around Yellowstone and have had some experience here, we're very surprised that you would come so far in peak season without a reservation expecting to find any room available. We certainly can understand why you were surprised at the... More

This is a very average hotel with very average accommodations. Even considering the seasonal aspect, the price is ridiculous. Free breakfast was as disappointing as the room. Who has heard of hours for the ice machine?

Thank you for sharing your recent experience with us. We're sorry that you were disappointed in the hotel rates in Yellowstone during peak season. This is the time of year that many folks show up with no reservation and must search long and hard to even find an available room or drive 100 miles to the closest town with more... More

First of all, I understand this hotel is in a great location for entering Yellowstone and that I'm going to pay a premium for that location. However, it was very disappointing to me that the attention to detail which, to me at least, makes for a pleasing hotel stay, was not there. At $250/night, I expect nice linens, good quality...

As a dog owner, finding a nice dog friendly hotel is always a big matter. Kelly,s Inn let us bring our dog. The room is enough big for a big dog. She liked having her doggie bed between our beds. The staff greeted her every time we walk through the front. She is a shy dog, but I was sure... More

We would highly recommend the Kelly Inn in West Yellowstone, MT. It is very clean, the beds are VERY comfortable, the staff is friendly and gave great advice about the local area and the breakfast (included in the daily fee) is very good (pancakes, biscuits and sausage gravy, eggs, sausage, fruit, toast, multiple cereals and several juices to choose from)....

Thank you for the nice review. We're glad to hear that your family enjoyed your stay with us. From the address on your TripAdvisor posting it looks like you may have enjoyed Yellowstone so much that you decided to become a full time resident. If so, welcome to the neighborhood.
