Cooke City is a different experience. About 3-4 miles from Yellowstone East entrance, it is rough "Old West mining town" sort of feel and nowhere near like West Yellowstone, a more family-oriented souvenirs and ice cream type environment. It attracts the more mature, extreme outdoorsy type visitor. It has become more popular in the last 10 years, still limited in lodging options.....which drives the price up. When we first stayed at the Alpine Motel around 2004 we paid about $65 and that was considered expensive for the place. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and the place was quaint. Fast forward to 2017 and the customer service is down the drain, the property is showing wear & tear, and the prices have skyrocketed.

They messed up our reservation royally assigning my husband (wheelchair -bound) a room going up 10 flights of stairs. I had called 3 times to ensure an accessible room assignment, ground floor. Imagine showing up at 5pm on the 4th of July weekend and getting the news that the person who took the reservation messed up (and have since been fired!). They did allocated for us two rooms for the night- due credit. Talking about credit, these rooms were not been used due to some needed maintenance. We were told one will be free, the other at 50%. Got billed for both when the CC bill came.

This place is showing the wear & tear everywhere, including tired staff. So, for what they charge, I strongly advise you that if you MUST stay in Cooke City just stay at the Super 8, a walk down the road. MUCH better rooms, much cordial, serviceable attention, coffee station, breakfast included, much nicer setting, next door bakery is awesome. I think the difference is $20/ well worth it.

Our 5th visit to Yellowstone, we love the Lamar Valley early in the AM, so plan to stay at Cooke City next time, but keeping fingers crossed we do NOT have to stay the Alpine.

We pulled into the Alpine at about 10 pm. Everything was ready for us. We had a second floor room. The room was clean and was substantially roomier than the average motel room. The room had nice, rustic-style furniture. The Alpine also had the most extra blankets and pillows that I have ever seen in a motel room. There was good wi-fi.

In the morning, we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful scenery.

The only 2 shortfalls were spotty TV reception and no free breakfast. But all-in-all the Alpine was a decently priced option and its close to the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone, so we got to see the animals first thing in the morning. We would stay there again.

We stayed here for one night before visiting Yellowstone - we stayed in A2, a two-bedroom suite with a kitchenette. The suite was spacious, with a nice living space, and a fully equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were good too, with no complaints about the beds or bathroom.

It looked a bit shabby in places - worn furniture, broken smoke alarm, utensils needed cleaning before use. But as a basic place to stay for a night, it was fine. We appreciated the fridge freezer, so we could have chilled drinks the next morning, and had no problems with the Wifi. The TV signal wasn't great. We were able to check out easily the next morning, though feeling a bit tired after a poor night's sleep (the room was hot, and the fan wasn't the most useful). Overall, a decent place for a short stay, and in a good spot for viewing the small city and accessing Yellowstone.

Room tip: A2 - two-bedroom suite with kitchenette

The Alpine Motel was clean, comfortable and just a few miles from the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It was no frills - there weren't many TV channels available and wifi was spotty at best, but it did what I needed it to do and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

If you do make a reservation there, you should be aware that if you arrive after 9pm, the office will be closed and your key will be in an envelope outside the office for you.

Bugs all over bathroom floor, no cover on bathroom light, seriously stained bathroom ceiling from leaks above, lamp shades brown with who-knows, screws all over the window sills, everything gritty to the touch. Cable serious bad- asked to chat with the manager ... rudely verbally dressed us down ..... do not waste your money......
