The hotel was the worst one I have spent a night in the States. Our room was old and dirty, the TV defect, the Wi-Fi slow... Since we stayed there just for one night I could have arranged with that place - but not at the price you pay for one night.

I'm sorry the guest came all the way from Germany and didn't like their stay. However, I would ask any guest to check the prices in West Yellowstone and then decide whether our pricing structure, that is as much as 40% less than many of our competitors, is not more than competitive. In a community that literally does a year's... More

Nice outdoor heated swimming pool. Good breakfast buffet: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, French toast, toasts and cereals. Terrible internet connection. They charged breakfast for a third person while we paid for a family room. I don’t understand this policy. It was the only hotel that charged extra for breakfast of all hotels we stayed during our road trip from... More

This hotel is way to expensive for what you receive, the lobby looks great but the rooms are shabby. The free breakfast is a joke as it is for only 2 there were 6 in our group. The pool was very warm but the hot tub was dirty. We will try a different hotel next time as was not worth... More

The rooms are sold as "double occupancy". That means two people per room. The cost of the breakfast, which most people love, in included in that rate. Since we do not up-charge for additional people in the rooms, we felt that asking guests to cover additional breakfasts for the additional people in the room was fair. Particularly when the breakfast... More

The picture on there site is the front of the hotel and lobby, the rest is a joke. It was dirty, the tv was snowy, not in just our room, both rooms we booked. The air conditioners run for a little while and then shut off and did not come back on, so our rooms got hot during the night.... More

Perception is such an interesting aspect of life. When I was young, a recall being punished for something I had done. I'm not sure what I did but I am sure I deserved what I got. Anyhow, my perception was that I was somehow wronged and so I immediately went outside and "got even". I squirted my dog with cold... More

The room was dirty. The locks on the doors had been broken and we did not feel safe. It was incredibly noisy when people walked in the room above. The only positive thing was the location. We would NOT recommend this place to anyone! This place is sooooo overpriced!

While we accept and appreciate all guest reviews, this one seem a bit over the top. "Worst Hotel Ever?" To borrow a phrase from Napoleon Dynomite: "Like how could you even know that?" I hope prospective guests read the other reviews before accepting any one as entirely accurate. I think a cross section is a better gauge. If guests have... More

We booked this hotel because of the car show we attend. They put the car people on the second floor facing the park we had the show in. How awesome! We could see our car even when we went back to the hotel. Breakfast was great! All you can eat buffet. If you have kids they have a movie every... More

Parking was great, staff was super friendly. The breakfast was really good as well. Highly recommended. The only negative was that the wi-fi there was terrible, though if you're going to West Yellowstone to be online, you're doing it wrong.

I had a great time at the hotel. I wanted someplace clean and safe to sleep between trips into Yellowstone. It was minutes away from the entrance and any shops or restaurants I wanted to go to were within walking distance. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the breakfast. It was great to be able to be... More

We stayed at this hotel on Saturday, July 20th. We had two rooms and 5 in our party. The price was very competitive during this VERY busy peak Yellowstone season. I was actually surprised that we were able to secure two rooms with less than a week's notice. Parking was good and the hotel sits across from a park, so... More

We were staying at another motel, but, because there was no breakfast offered at our motel, they recommended eating at the White Buffalo. There was a $9 breakfast buffet that was awesome. It was very extensive - eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, potatoes, pancakes, cold cereal, toast, coffee, orange/apple/cranberry juices. The staff were very good at making sure it was... More
