We stayed at this hotel for one night after driving from Deadwood, SD. We arrived very late (due to the Beartooth Highway being closed). We were exhausted and shown to our rooms right away. Nothing to speak of here...basic motel room. Yes, the walls are very thin, but after the looooooong day we had we all slept like babies. It is a good place to lay your head for the night, but I would not like to stay here much longer than that.
The hotel is a short drive to the NorthEast entrance of Yellowstone. We were exploring much of Yellowstone and ending in Teton, so we did not use this as the base of our travels, nor do I advise you to. Yellowstone is just to vast.
The only problem we encountered, and it is a small one, is there is only 1 person running the show here. She does everything, from check in to accounting, she even sleeps there. While she is very nice, it is just too much for 1 person to do. This situation was realized during breakfast. We were told coffee and juice would be out at 6am. Around 6:30 there was no one around and no coffee or juice. My father (who needs his juice in the morning to take pills) had to go next door to buy some. Around 7am there were 8 or so people waiting for breakfast. When the woman finally came around she said for now we can only get cereal and packaged danishes. When we ran out of milk after a few people took their cereal, she said we would have to wait because she had to finish up paperwork before she could do anything else. We decided to leave before that because we wanted to get an early start if we had any chance to see the wildlife. Breakfast is not that big of a deal, but since it was included we did wait around for it and were a bit peeved when we saw why we couldn't get anything they had on offer.
I can not comment at all on Cooke City, as we arrived late and left early. As far as I can see it is a tiny town with 1 main road that leads to Yellowstone. A few restaurants and motels are on that road, and not much else.
I would probably not stay here again if I was coming to visit Yellowstone. However, if you are driving from the east, and are looking for a place to break up the trip for 1 night, I would recommend the Super 8.
