Clean room, small but adequate. We stayed in the newer part of the motel and the room had been remodeled. Even tho our room was facing the street, we did not hear any noise during the night. Owners of the motel are very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful gift shop in the hotel.

Stayed in the newer motel part, not the main hotel. Room was not clean--carpet was stiff with dirt and there were used Kleenex under one of the beds from a previous tenant. Mattresses were horribly uncomfortable with huge valleys. The shower and bathroom faucet ran at a bare trickle at full blast and the shower stall had mildew in the... More

Nice motel. Clean, comfortable and a good price for the area, especially if you are just there to sleep. I stayed in room 11. Good WiFi. Friendly staff. Walls are thin so I could hear my neighbors snoring at night and discussing their hairstyle plans in the morning. I would stay here again if traveling through the area. It's a... More

What a fun place to stay. We stayed in the main hotel, our room did have a private bath which was very nice. A small window in the bathroom is what cooled the whole room as the window in the room did not open and no air conditioning. Our 2 kids noticed almost immediately that there was no TV in... More

This is a great bargain, We didn't observe the hotel part, but stayed in the outer, fairly newer part the motel. It is great to spend less on sleeping when you are traveling through the park and only sleeping there. It is extremely clean. The people are really nice.

Thank goodness my boyfriend and I are both sized petite or else we’d be uncomfortable in this room. But the 9x12 food room was just right for us—and so was the price in this location. Even better it was clean all the way. ROOM AMENITIES Somehow within that small room there fit a bed, small dining table and two chairs,... More

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
