“Very Disappointed. Would be ashamed of what they charge”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

First, I regularly stay in Motel 6 and Super 8, so I am not a hotel snob. But if I were the owners of this motel, I would be ashamed and embarrassed to charge $100/per night. And I relied on the reviews on TripAdvisor when I booked this hotel. Terrible disappointing to read the glowing reviews and then see what the motel had to offer. When my husband & I walked into the office, we said "Hello, we are here to check in". No hello, no greeting, just "What's the name?" After we gave our name, the young girl gave us a card to fill out, not saying a word. Then handed us the key. Never said a work to us. This is customer service?!?! The bed was soiled, lumpy, very soft. The carpeting is dirty and old. And no soap in the dispenser in the shower so once in the shower, soaking wet, you had to get back out to find a tiny hand soap on the sink. And all this for the tidy sum of $100.00,

Room Tip: My tip, don't stay there.

We had a queen bed and the room was cramped (the TV blocked the door) but the price and service were great. It is just far enough from Main St as to not get traffic noise but you could walk to downtown area shops which is a good idea since parking is limited there. The motel only has 12 rooms and you have your own parking spot right outside the door. Service was great and room was clean.

My family and friends visit west Yellowstone once or twice a year, we found the Golden west motel through a friend 5 years ago and have been staying there ever since. It is close to everything west Yellowstone has to offer but away from the crowds, it's quite the accommodations are excellent and Kurt, Shellie and their staff are fantastic host's. The rates are great the rooms are comfortable and always clean.

We got the two queen suite with kitchinette and another couple in our party got the queen room next door. Both rooms (especially our suite) was small, but not quite cramped. Everything was spic and span clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a small gift basket provided with snacks and various toiletries, giving us a feeling of real welcome. The kitchinette was equipped with the basic kitchen necessities plus coffee.

Overall, the value is great. It's close enough to the "downtown" area that you can walk just about anywhere you need to be, yet it seems miles away from the tourist town bustle. We wanted a decent place to crash for a couple of nights while visiting Yellowstone Park and the Golden West filled that bill perfectly. I highly recommend this place for base accomodations.

The room was nice and very clean. The complimentary items were simply astonishing. We were greeted by the staff, and they were super nice and helpful. The rates were very reasonable for the area. It was in a great location with just a short walk to the center of town. We highly recommend it. There was no air conditioning in our room, but it was nice with the windows open.

We found this hotel to have some of the lowest rates in West Yellowstone. It's nothing fancy, but we were just looking for a place to sleep. Room was clean. Bed was good but maybe a little too soft. I would have given this place 4 stars, but our neighbor was up and out of his room by 5:00 and you could really hear the noise through the wall. We turned the fan on they provide in every room and that didn't even help much. Overall however, a good stay.

We arrived in town at around 6:00 PM Friday night last week for the Labor Day weekend. Upon arrival, our room was ready. Kurt & Michele were there in the office / their home to greet us, ensure we were satisfied with our room and accomodations. We stayed 3 nights. Each day our room was cleaned up, and ready for our use the next night. The rooms are very clean, updated with nice tile showers and perfect for 2 people on a vaction. This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a place to set up a 'base camp' for your sight seeing and traveling around the area. Kurt and Michele are the friendliest people in town from what we found. I will be staying here again next year for both snowmobiling and our Labor Day weekend trip!
