We had one of the remodeled rooms in front. Almost everything is new. 2 queen room was very large and airy. Room enough for two roll aways. West Yell. IS expensive. $150 and up common. The breakfast buffet is commendable and makes the White Buffalo a bargain in this town. Neither of the 2 kinds of scrambled eggs were runny.... More

You said so many nice things some people think you might be my relative. I guess if you go back enough generations we are all kinfolk. Still, I appreciate your review. Comments that help other guests understand our property are always welcome. We hope that if your travels take you to West Yellowstone again that you give us the honor... More

The room was huge, probably the biggest room I've ever seen...and I do think it was clean enough. The beds were super uncomfortable, tv was the old style with a tiny screen and weighs about 100 pounds...lol. They do offer a full breakfast buffet but honestly, I would go to a restaurant as everything was bland and runny. The front... More

Thanks for your review. I was sorry to hear that the breakfast buffet was not up to your standards. Usually we get great reviews for the breakfast. I was also glad for you to note the cleanliness of the property, the large rooms and the fact that we were $70.00 a night cheaper than anywhere else you could find in... More

I will probably chose some other hotel over this if I am not cash pressed. The stay was barely OK. The hotel was clean enough for an OK stay. There was a paid breakfast buffet which was average too. I visited in summer 2010.

Thanks for the review. This guest must have a very good memory. I can't even remember what I had for breakfast this morning let alone an overnight stay from a vacation five years ago. In any case, at the time of this guests stayed at the property it was under different ownership and we have made well over $100,000 in... More

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
