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!!

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

Big room, clean, nice front-desk staff. Basic motel, dated furnishings. Priced high for the tourist season, not unusual. "Free" breakfast had limited offerings. Stick to the cereal, toast and hard-boiled eggs. Avoid the powdered-egg omelets stacked high in a steamer tray. Coffee was the push-button instant machine kind. Great access to Yellowstone. Ok for a limited stay but don't spend... More

After getting into West Yellowstone in the early eve and seeing it was flooded with vintage and classic cars we knew we better start looking for a place to stay prior to going into the park. After stopping and checking a Best Western and looking online at a few I pulled into here just to see if they had rooms.... More

We arrived in West Yellowstone with no reservation, saw Brandin' Iron Inn and got the last room. Everything about the hotel was excellent, particularly the front desk clerks, Sam and Byron. The room was very clean and spacious, the breakfast was very good and they accommodated our last minute request for an additional night and moved our luggage to a... More

Pretty good location, rooms and bathroom were pretty good. I'd give the shower a 7/10! The room was pretty well lit, had a fridge and table and television. Only thing was the wifi didn't work at all and we had to walk down the road to use the free wifi at McDonald's.

The staff was friendly .The room was dated but clean and neat with everything we needed. This stay was an excellent value as it included a great breakfast with a large food selection. A very busy property but maintained and operated well in a busy tourist town.

As two couples traveling together we spent three nights at the Brandin' Iron. It is very convenient to the Western entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Although not exceptional, the room was adequate for our needs. The breakfast was sufficient...although the breakfast room was crowded on occasion. If you don't plan to put in too much "on site" time, this is... More
