I screwed around too long in the Park, and I think I got the very last room available in West Yellowstone, so I was expecting to pay through the nose. What I was not expecting was to pay $233.00, plus tax, with no discounts of any sort honored, for a room with mediocre beds, NO hot water, and thin walls.... More

West yellowstone is the best place to plan a 4 day trip to yellow stone park. It was an amazing experience with 2500 miles drive covering West and South yellow stone. Covered South and North loops. Loved the Midway and Biscuit Geyser basins

Front desk lady doesn't know how smile to customer. When we asked for coffee in our room of 4, she said we have to share 2 small coffee bags + one decaf bag.(This type of coffee bag just fill enough for half of small paper cup). There is a sign for pool and hot tub, but actually nothing existed! In... More

Everyone slept pretty poor because the beds were very hard and the blankets were not soft, it was too hot even in September because the AC unit in our room did not work properly. The breakfast was very good with a larger variety of items to choose from but it is only free to 2 guest per room.

John, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I wish it had been something other than simply a way to strike back at young college students who were working at the property for the summer. I understand the right a quest has to write a review, but to simply be punitive does not help us in our... More

I loved staying at the White Buffalo. It was so great to have a clean, nice place to stay with my family of four. The rooms were clean and the employees were accommodating and helpful. The buffet breakfast in the morning was a huge bonus with kids!! I loved not having to worry about food first thing. Also, the amazing... More

We stayed at this place August 11-16, 2016. It was clean, quiet and the location was great. Breakfast was really good. The staff was wonderful. Our only complaint is....we should have stayed here last time we were in West Yellowstone! When we come back, this will be to this place! We would recommend this hotel to our friends or family....

We stayed for one night as part of a road trip that went through Yellowstone. The White Buffalo is not a five star hotel, seems to cater to international tour groups as much as local tourists, but was overall a great stop for us. We would definitely stay again.

AC broke down and the guy came and looked at it, said he call the handy man. The handy man didn't even show up for 2 hours until we called twice, without answer, and then went down the the front desk. Greeted at the front desk with a very "no" attitude lady, wouldn't even acknowledge you and did not give... More

As always, we appreciate people taking the time to review. I am wondering if there was a issue with a language barrier with the front desk employee. We have students From China who are working the front desk in the evenings. English is of course their second language. Having them here is not only a life changing experience for them,... More
