This motel is very old, and the rooms are fairly small. The motel was built somewhere around the 1960's and feels like it. The pluses are that it is clean, and the beds are decent, and the heaters works well; and it is less expensive than 90% of the other hotel/motels in West Yellowstone. It does have free wifi, a...

The cabin had two queen beds, very tight room. Beds were comfortable but bedspreads looked old. Heater was noisy. Power strip offered outlets for recharging phones, etc. Bath was tiny as was shower stall. Very clean and staff was polite, helpful and friendly. Price was high as was demand.

This was a last minute reservation. It seems some rooms are nicer than others. We had #16--very small, poor lighting (only 2 40watt bulbs), worn and in poor repair (the toilet did not flush well), dirty carpet (wear slippers). spider webs in corners, no refrigerator or microwave in room, heater either too hot or too cold. On the plus size:... More

Filthy carpet, moldy shower curtain and quite smelly. Due to room availability I had to stay in 3 hotels while in West Yellowstone. Price was identical to Yellowstone Inn and One Horse (best option of the three). Pioneer came in a very distant 3rd. Stayed there on a day it snowed and I tried to check in at 2:30 since... More

With all the crowds and business of West Yellowstone, it was so nice to retreat to our motel. Close to the park entrance, dining and shops, it was nestled in like a cozy retreat. Our room was big enough to get comfy in. The bed was very nice. The decor was quite charming, the rustic look of the wood and... More

The owner is delightful. The rooms are very tiny, the walls are very thin, you can hear conversations in the next room. It is clean, but the towels are a bit thin. The bathroom is tiny and I really wish they would repaint around the shower. It would not be my first choice, but it does provide a clean place... More

Lovely little inn - excellent value for money; clean and comfortable if all you want is a place to sleep. The owner is a very nice lady who was quite considerate when we checked in late - after a tiring drive from SLC. The reason this is not a five-star review is because of the guy who banged on our...

I made this reservation because most other hotels in the area were booked or extremely high priced. A lot of the reviews said that this was clean. For myself, I thought it wasn't as clean as it could be, but my wife was very upset at the choice that I had made. From the pictures on tripadvisor, it looked pretty... More

This motel is very old, but is clean and comfy and the room rate was a decent value. The manager was extremely nice and held our room for us, even though we didn't make it to town until 11:30 pm. West Yellowstone is a busy town in the summer and the hotels book very quickly. I booked this room through... More
