The motel is reasonably well located but is pretty basic The rooms are okay with everything you need but the reception could do with a refurb The breakfast is really basic paper plates and plastic cutlery But the omelettes even though bought in were ok Tinned peaches were the only fruit I'd pay extra and stay somewhere with better facilities

we stayed in this hotel for one night. We arrived about 21 h. My room was in the upper floor. There was nobody to help me carry my heavy suitcase . Also other friends had health problems and could not carry their suitcase up the stairs. People at the reception were very rude and indifferent. At last we offered money... More

There are other options in West Yellowstone and I would be willing to spend more money next time in order to avoid this place. It felt so gross that we refused to walk around without our slippers on and we actually avoided taking a shower because the bathroom looked dirty (stained linoleum and grout) and preferred to be stinky for...

Nostalgia (noun) - a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. I first visited Yellowstone when I was knee high to a grasshopper, as a family of 6 traveling on a shoestring budget. I think we probably stayed in places like this . . . exactly like this .... More

If you just need a place to sleep after a full day in the park, then Brandin Iron will do. It's close to the park entrance, gas, and food. The Wifi stinks and the shower will get cold. The heater starts out ok but then will wake you up in the middle of the night to a hot room. Overall,... More

After a long day in Yellowstone NP the hotel was welcome. Room clean, shower good and bed comfy Dinner was good as was service but expensive. Breakfast sufficient but nothing special. Good hotel for one night

Room was clean. Had a breakfast that was about like most in the area for the price of the motel. Staff is always nice. The internet could be better. They have two hot tubs you can use. You do need to plug in the tv into the back of the tv to watch.

We were surprised that our room was so big for the price we paid (king suite), especially since we also received a AAA discount. The room was clean, convenient to all town shops, restaurants, and West Yellowstone entrance. The breakfast could use a facelift, maybe consider alternating the hot dish or providing a make-your-own waffle station comparable to other "free... More

We got in really late at night, so we were very happy that our room was extremely clean. The hotel is in the center of town with lots of attractions/restaurants to walk to. And it's only a few minutes from the park entrance. Cons? The breakfast was gross and parking was very limited. Be prepared to fight with lots of... More

Our room had an INFESTATION OF BED BUGS!! The assistant manager was an arrogant, condescending man. He actually acted as if we should consider the BED BUGS in our room a MINOR inconvenience to us!!! The front desk staff was very helpful. The "breakfast" was passable. Hope they have cleaned up the BED BUG INFESTATION!!

Randy R, Owner at Brandin' Iron Inn, responded to this review

Yellowstone National Park is an international destination. The area attracts visitors from all over the world, and all walks of life. Every motel in the area will get periodic reports of bed bugs. The Brandin’ Iron Inn utilizes industry best practices on the rare occasion that bed bugs are reported. We immediately quarantine the room, remove the mattresses, and remediate... More
