I reserved a room here on a last second change of plans to stay in town when everybody else was full. I got the last room that they had, a single twin bed with a kitchenette. While I don't know what the other rooms were like the one I stayed in was very dated. They warned me ahead of time,... More

The room that we had was huge, with new carpet. We both agreed the room was roomy, nice and worth the price. We would stay here again and will recommend this place to our friends. The Motel is the closet establishment to the west entrance to the park.

This hotel was the cheapest on our road trip through America, but it was one of the best. Don't expect great luxury, the rooms are basic, but when you stay in West Yellowstone you're going to be outside all the time and not spend a lot of time in your room anyway. This hotel offers exactly what you need when... More

Very nice hotel situated just by the west gate of Yellowstone Park. Large rooms, comfortable beds. 5 min walking to the center, shops and restaurants. Good for two three nights for fast Yellowstone visiting. Free parking just at the door. Negative: must check in before nine p.m.

The room is comfortable and clean, but they could put a coffeemaker at least. The wi-fi did not work well. The price is high for what you get, but West Yellowstone has a very limited choice if you do not book in advance.

We stay here every time we go to Yellowstone. We usually travel on the fly, so we don't reserve more than a day in advance. During a recent trip, we ended up staying in this hotel for five nights. The prices are very affordable, and the staff is very friendly. The lady who runs the place was more than accommodating.... More

After a long drive we finally arrived in West Yellowstone. Our motel looked liked something out of the fifties, very dated. The receptionist was not exactly welcoming and the front office was full of clutter and dusty. However we had a large room which was clean and tidy. We stayed in September and even though we did not need the... More

We booked this ahead and only chose it because it was one of the few available at the time for our budget. The front desk lady was nice, but it was a very dated, not overly clean place. Beds were comfortable, but musty smell was everywhere. Wouldn't recommend if you have other choices.

I agree with others: the motel is clean and well-located. However, it would help to refresh it (the ceiling has leaks in the bathroom; the walls also were not repainted in a while). However, the major problem is that there is nothing in the rooms: coffee maker is missing (you can go to a gas station to get it for... More
