“Great value, spacious clean rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010

Cannot fault Kelly Inn at West Yellowstone.... for the value it is great but more than that the rooms were spacious, quiet and very clean. Big comfortable bed.
Breakfast was good and maybe the breakfast room can get busy it was not cramped (everyone eats breakfast at the same time, so you'd expect a little overcrowding)
the motel has a pool but I didn't uses it so can't comment but it looked like those using it seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Location: right on the West Entrance to Yellowstown national park..... we stayed at 4 different locations during our stay at Yellowstone and in hindsight we would have stayed at this place for three of our nights with the fourth being at Bozeman to catch an ealry flight the next morning. That's how good this place was.

It's a mid-range hotel in the middle of the small town of West Yellowstone.
You can reach it very easly from the west entrance of Yellowstone Park.
The hotel have a beautiful pool and hot tub.
Rooms are big and clean.
The Breakfast is poor and the space for eat it is almost zero :I have seen guests with their food eating around the hall or entrance.
They have a huge parking and the shops zone is very close to Kelly Inn.

Stayed at Kelly Inn a few weeks ago, and it was the best hotel stay i've ever had. The General Manager Don & Sally Hill were so kind a courteous to take the time and tell me about things to visit around Yellowstone. I will be definately staying there again and again at all my Yellowstone return visits! And the park was great too! Thanks for a wonderful stay Don & Sally.

We stayed here for three nights in October. We had one of the deluxe king rooms which was plenty roomy for my husband and myself along with our 13 year old and 9 year old twins and our Yorkie. It was great to have a fridge since most of the restaurants in the park are closed this time of year so we packed our own lunches each day. The room was very clean. Our kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub.

We had no problem with the small breakfast area even though there was no vacancy during our stay; we're early risers so we beat the morning breakfast rush and got to the park as the sun came up which is a GREAT time to see wildlife. And my kids really loved the automatic pancake machine.

It was a little noisy above us in our room but half the state of Utah was staying at the hotel (Utah state education holiday) so there were TONS of kids and we expected a little noise when we saw all the UT plates in the parking lot. I will probably request a 3rd floor room next time.

We would certainly recommend this hotel and will most likely stay here again on our next trip to Yellowstone.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your recent visit. You picked a great time of the year to visit West Yellowstone even though many of the local businesses had closed for the season. A lot of families from both Idaho and Utah use their Teachers Conference breaks each year to take advantage of the decreased crowds and abundant wildlife in the park this time of year. If you enjoyed the fall season perhaps you would also enjoy another visit in the spring season as well. The rates are low, the park is far less crowded and the wildlife is very abundant every spring. We hope to see you then.

We just returned from our 3rd stay at the Kelly Inn. This year we had a room with two king sized beds and the room was very big. We came with our friends and they had the two rooms next to us. There rooms were quite a bit smaller then ours.

A few days before we arrived, I emailed the hotel asking if we could have a room close to our friends and they sent me an email saying that they put us in the room right next to them. That was great and very helpful.

As I stated, we have stayed at the Kelly Inn for the past three years when we have visited Yellowstone. We will not stay anywhere else in West Yellowstone. The breakfast works well for us, and with having a fridge in the room, I can bring lunch stuff and make sandwiches to take to the park with us. We also cook dinner at the hotel with our small grill.

This hotel is great and we look forward to going back next year!

We booked this hotel to be close to Yellowstone, as I'm sure everyone else does and for that it is ideal, literally a left and a right out of the car park and you'll be in the park.

When we first arrived, we had been put on the ground floor, despite asking for a top floor room and the guy on reception was brilliant, he managed to wangle a few things and got us on the top floor. Was really pleased with this as the ground floor rooms have access to the car park too so you'd get headlights shining in and car noise and people walking on the gravel right outside your window.

The room we were given also had one of the little wooden bears looking the window, think there's only about 6 in the hotel so was chuffed with that (small things amusing small minds!!)

All in all, couldnt find anything wrong with this hotel, the room and all areas were clean and tidy, staff were helpful and the location is spot on, just a stroll from all of West Yellowstone's shops and places to eat.

A few people have mentioned the breakfast area, yes it is on the small side for the number of rooms in the hotel, but you'll find that if you get up nice and early (like you should be doing if you're visiting Yellowstone) then you won't have a problem! The computer for guests is also in the breakfast room, so if you have private emails to view etc, I wouldnt do it in the morning!
