We stayed in the summer of 2012 while on a cross-country trip with our dog (love that the Yodeler is pet-friendly). Someone had recommended that we stay here if we were going that way, so we decided to plan our route to incorporate a stop at the Yodeler and then drive the Beartooth the next day. The Yodeler is easy to find and very close to town, and check-in was quick and smooth.
We didn't realize until getting there that the lower level rooms have sort of a basement feel (we had a room on the lower level), but the room was spacious and clean with a large window that let in a lot of natural light. And, because of the placement of the window you can keep the curtain open without sacrificing privacy. There are two doors - one from the outside of the hotel where you enter into a small hallway that you share with another room, and then there are the locking doors to the two rooms off of that hallway.
The room was basic, but had two double beds, a desk, and table - it was quite large. We didn't use the steam shower in the bathroom, but that was a cool feature and we probably would have if we'd been staying there in the winter. My husband took an easy walk into town to pick up dinner. If one of us didn't have to stay with the dog in the room at all times, I would have liked to walk into town to explore a bit, but oh well!
The only thing I was a little let down by was that the Yodeler was a bit more expensive than other hotels on our trip that I would consider to be on the same level in terms of being a little dated or no-frills, especially for one of the lower-level rooms. I know you can't really compare apples to apples since the other hotels were in completely cities, though. (It also obviously would have been cheaper if we'd had more people staying in our room to split the cost with - the room slept 4 but we only had 2 people.) We still had a very pleasant stay, the staff was very friendly, and it was great being able to walk into town after spending a long day in the car.
