We enjoyed our 5-nights stay there to have a good rest after long days in Yellowstone NP. It is located 5 mn away from west entrance, which is very convenient, and all the restaurants are there (car not mandatory but better...) The room was tiny but ok to stay only to sleep. Private bathroom. Good pricing for the area. Pillow... More

Great choice for our trip to West Yellowstone. Young owners were very friendly and accommodating with fair rates for this tourist city. Everything was new and well kept. Has onsite laundry which is a plus. Would definitely choose this place again if return. Within walking distance from the downtown area even for this old couple!! Includes cable TV and wireless...

I asked to change it but they told me that the hotel was fully booked. probably 6 months before they had... More

I am sorry for your unfavorable stay. I assure you that we try our best to get each person the room that they desire. We are just an 8 room motel so moving people around is often not easy. But again I apologize for this. As for the carpets, we have a carpet cleaning business come in every spring and... More

No frills, but the room was spacious and spotless. Good value in relation to other places in West Yellowstone, many of which can run you a good chunk of change for what you get in peak season. The staff was very friendly, giving suggestions for restaurants and activities in town. Noticing we had kids, they even pointed out the park,... More

We choose the hotel as it is close to Yellowstone, the welcome at the reception was not specially friendly, we got our Keys. On the next morning i tried to turn on the floor lamp but the only think i got was a flash flame out of it! As the office opens only at 9 we reported this by voicemail.... More

This hotel is very clean and new. The rooms have a refrigerator. You can park in front of your room. The city of West Yellowstone is only a few minutes away. The Hotel has also a laundry. All in all we had a very good stay.

My husband and I stayed here in Sept 2013 for 3 nights. They offer condos and motel rooms. We stayed in the motel. The room was clean and spacious. There was a king size bed, round table with 2 chairs, fridge and microwave. The sink is separated from the toilet and shower which is handy when 2 people are both... More

After a day in Yellowstone Park, this place was a welcome sight. Basic, but clean and well cared for, it was comfortable and just what we needed. When I booked it, I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised!

Downstairs there was the living room, kitchen (fully equipped with the basics) and a full bath. Upstairs there was 1 bedroom with bunk beds and a full or queen size bed and another room with a queen... More
