This is a delightful and charming throw-back place that has been in continuous operation since the 19-teens. Try to get one of the original rooms. The bath is down the hall - but that was probably pretty handy back when the place was built ( better than outside). Our room was right next to a creaky 2nd floor balcony that... More

This is really a fun place. The entire bottom floor is mostly a gift store and the rest is a common lounger and television. The rooms are on the second floor--I never saw an elevator, but there may be one in the back. I always used the stairs that come straight down almost to the front door. One thing to... More

Historic to the point that rooms in the main building (all 6 of them) do not have baths. Central bath brings back the true old days. Cottage style rooms with full bath complete the property in downtown location. WiFi, Comp coffee,tea and a Unique gift shop are all here. Oldest continuous use property in West Yellowstone steeped in history. Presidents... More

I would have given it five stars if it had a attached bath. Room was well decored, cozy looking but small. It is a youth hostel so keep that in mind. It has a cabin like feel to it. You would find lot if antiques in the corridor and lobby. Close to downtown. Doesn't have breakfast but has many good... More

Excellent value for money in this very touristic town where it can be quite expensive to stay. We stayed in a private room which was very cute. There is wood everywhere in the hotel. The showers are in the corridor but extremely clean. Nice porch to hang out on. We ended up staying for three nights.Our room was cleaned every... More

My girlfriend and I found this hostel late in the evening during peak season. Soooo clean. Very quaint and rustic. Reminded me of Old Faithful Inn. Shared shower and bathroom down the hall (which were super clean) and there was also a wash basin in the room. Def will come again!!!

Stayed in the newer Motel rooms. Loved the rustic feel of the log walls and furniture throughout. Our room had everything we needed to be comfortable. Nice family friendly owned business. Within walking distance of all the shops in town, which was great for window shopping and dining out. The Madison gift shop is filled with something for everyone. Felt... More

My sister and I recently took our nieces on a trip to Yellowstone and stayed at the Historic Madison Hotel. We were all very excited to be staying in this cute little mom and pop type hotel as opposed to a chain. We were not disappointed. The room was so cute - it looked like the interior of a little...

Stayed here for 1 night. Great location. Right down town and just down the street from the West Yellowstone entrance. The rooms upstairs in the Historic part of the Hotel are very charming in the sense of decoration and your basic amenities. Some have private baths and some do not. That is a choice you can make when booking your... More

The rooms upstairs are small, old, rustic with log walls and log beds which at first seem appealing in that rugged western appeal. However, the frames are not sturdy and ready to fall apart, the beds are horribly uncomfortable and the windows drafty. The very crowded room is a guarenteed toe stub. There's no TV in the room and lucky... More
