Very outdated facilities to start with. The shower's tempture is difficult to adjust. The walls and ceiling are poorly sound insulated. The clock and phone were broken. If you charge $200 per night, you'd better treat your customers well, especially those from overseas who bring money and jobs here.

This hotel caters to an Asian tour company for yellowstone. Pool broken/drained & space for hut tub was a dirt patch. Room had a funny smell. We immediately made a new reservation somewhere else (I highly suggest the Days Inn if you have kids. 100 ft slide and double hot tubs w/ pool) When we went to front desk to... More

The room looked like it had now been cleaned very well, Handicap parking was the farthest spot from the door, One set of stairs for the hold motel, the drains were clogged, butts and beer bottles in front of the motel. free breakfast was really bad. the price was 4 times the rate of other places.

We stayed here as a tour group visiting Yellowstone National Park. The place looked aged, requiring serious upgrades. For example, TV was still the cathode tube type from yesteryear. Faded colors and snowy screen. Unwatchable! The room did look clean and beds comfortable. However, we would not recommend this place for the following serious problems. First, coffee porches provided for... More

We appreciate all reviews. While I'm sorry the guest did not like the color scheme. As for the need for "serious upgrades", I reject that opinion in that about 80% of the hotel has new carpet, new paint and new granite lavatory tops and sinks. All rooms have new artwork this year as well as bed linens. The majority of... More

No hot water! The hotel needs an upgrade! I was told there are too many people at the hotel and nothing can be done! People expect to have hot water in a hotel. Bathroom looks like they have started to remodel tub tile looks ok but window is old moldy and can be opened from outside! The floor tile is... More

The smell is horrible. The rooms are dirty and the beds are very uncomfortable. It's a $70 room at best not $200+. We will NEVER stay here again. We could not believe how bad it was. Yellowstone is beautiful though.

As the property owner we appreciate guests who take the time to help us do a better job. Unfortunately sometimes reviews cause us to wonder about their motivation. I had my staff check our files and we could not find a Michael, with a last name beginning with H within three days of the date this review was posted. Perhaps... More

Since on a long trip and the date was firmed up about 5 days ahead, choices were limited in and around Yellowstone National Park. This hotel is within minutes from the West entrance to the park. The room was large, clean, comfortable and provided a great night of rest. The breakfast buffet is included and offered a good selection of... More

I couldn't find a hair dryer in the room, called the front desk, and the response was if you can't find it in the room, we don't have extra hair dryers. Didn't even apologize. Also got the smallest old style tv I've ever seen that has no sound. Will not stay here again.

Julie, Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'm sorry you couldn't find a hair dryer. We do provide them, but unfortunately many of them are "borrowed long-term" by guests. Our housekeeping staff tries to keep the front desk informed so that they can be replaced as soon as possible. As for the TV, we are replacing all of the... More

The hotel is in walkable distance to a grocery store and many different restaurants all less than a 10 minutes walk. The room was a comfortable size with clean sheets and towels and hair dryers. The fridge was not working for us so it may just not be plugged in. There was also no mircowave available in the room but... More

We stayed here for a single night after a hole day in yellowstone. It was alright for the price since the prices in west yellowstone is high. The room was alright and so was the bed.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Staying in April is problematic in West Yellowstone. The park is not yet opened and the properties are just being "opened" for the season. I'm delighted that your stay was good and would encourage you to return during the summer or fall to see the community in full operation. There... More
