I arrived in Cody with no reservation, but this small motel on the West side of town became a good place to stay for the night. The shower was clean, the bed comfortable, and the TV had my favorite channel. I was in a first floor room, on the East side - there was no microwave or fridge. That was OK - I always carry snacks, but when I decided to look for food, after all, I didn't see anything nearby (should have asked about food when checking in). That was OK, - snacks became supper and I got a good night's sleep. The location was very quiet. I wanted to get off early the next day. I had noticed they served coffee in the lobby at 7:30 a.m., but in the end, I was awake early and ready to roll before 7 - so I cannot speak about their morning food/coffee. Beware as you drive the windy, pretty road toward the Park - at that early hour, critters were everywhere - and I surely didn't want to hit any. I guess it was locals who passed me, oblivious to the wildlife - I didn't care, seeing them and the landscape was more important to me. There are other fancier places to stay between Cody and the Park, but definitely upscale. The river and lovely scenery make the ride very nice. Consider gassing up in Cody, as gas in the Park is expensive - they also have mechanics if you need one, and sell groceries and necessities. Yellowstone was well worth the expense - I'd not seen it in too long, it was great to get back. Next trip, I'll see more of Cody. And this motel would be my overnight destination again.
