Never.Again!The place smells like moth balls, the bath and shower had no water, the water in the faucet smelled foul, the toilet wasn't screwed down all the way, and it was like stepping into the 70's. We almost packed up and went elsewhere!

I am always appreciative of people who write reviews, good or bad. This allows us to solve problems we would not have otherwise known about. Some reviews, however; do not make sense. Unfortunately, you did not take time to inform the front desk about your concerns. I will never understand why people stay in rooms they do not like only... More

The location of this hotel gives a quiet and sound night, the design of the front door and reception are unique and nice, most importantly the room is clean, although the overall use of colour and design in the room seem a bit old, but still a good experience for us.

The clerk at check-in said that with our $150+ room we'd get a hot buffet in the morning. Next morning a different clerk says no, they don't do food this time of year. Not even watered-down coffee in the lobby. Small things added up to aggravations I'd ignore with a cheaper room: several electrical plate covers were broken; soap/shampoo dispensers... More

We had traveled all day and were ready for a good nights sleep. After having dinner we drove to the White Buffalo just minutes away from the main street. It is located across the street from a lovely park. I love the location and the quiet setting. The hotel is affordable, clean, and has a friendly and helpful staff. Our... More

The White Buffalo was just outside Yellowstone Park and after a long day in the park it was a perfect location to relax and get some rest. The Hotel was clean and quiet and it came with a wonderful breakfast with lots of options. There was also a movie option and hot tub.

Great location across from the park walking distance from downtown. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Loved the convenience of the mini fridge. Quality kid friendly movies. A friendly and helpful staff. The nicest perks include the pool and jacuzzi located in a lovely courtyard. Enjoyed our stay. benloyd

I have never seen so many Best Western chains within one city block. There is only one town park in West Yellowstone, White Buffalo occupied one corner, on each of the other three corners has its own Best Western brands. It is fascinating to watch such a setting. West Yellowstone is located at the west entrance of the Yellowstone Park.... More

I and my family visited this hotel for one night during our Yellowstone national park trip in may 2014. We found this hotel like motel in our first impression. The hotel is very basic and average... We got room at 2nd floor of this 2 story hotel. We found that there is no elevator... And our room was in furthest... More

Frequenting Yellowstone three or four times a year, we have stayed at this same property several times. The location is perfect for our visits to Yellowstone and the surrounding area. This time, our stay was met with upgrades/refurbishing of rooms and ammenities. The hotel staff was friendly, accommodating and met our every expectation. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and... More
