Kirkwood Resort & Marina
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Wow, it's incredible how accurate the reviews are of this place. GloArt was 100% correct - "Not quite what I was expecting". And EMK55's reviews about the small tv's with tinfoil wrapped rabbit ears was RIGHT ON! This place offered us that, but it certainly wasn't what we expected. I was almost in tears when we arrived, open the door to the cabin and one thing after another discovered how wrong I was to choose this place.

The beds were large - a bonus - but the tv's were extremely small. The refrigerator was absolutely gross and the shelves broken. The bathroom sink was slow to drain making it impossible to wash your face, brush your teeth without the feeling of throwing up and the dishes provided needed to be washed before you used them. Who knew where they had been. Only problem, no wash rag to use. They had a sponge on the back of the sink, but who knows what was 'growing' in that! So we used paper towels to wash the dishes.

If you're looking for a place to stay - look elsewhere! We will NEVER return to Kirkwood. Check out Yellowstone Holiday Resort - they looked nicer on our drive to/from Kirkwood.

I was looking for a cheaper alternative than staying in downtown West Yellowstone on my Trip to Yellowstone National Park this Summer. I found the Kirkwood Resort & Marina and thought because it had resort & marina in its name that it would be a nicer place to stay. Needless to say I was wrong. The accomodations were fine, you had a couple beds with a small bathroom near the lake. However, I was expecting more of a 3-star/4-star resort and this was definately not that. They had an area for tent camping within the complex, so that should give you an idea of the place. We really only used it to sleep, so in that regard it worked out for us; but I would compare it to a KOA campground cabin.

They do have a little shop in the registration office and opened a "cafe" (really more of a food truck) on-site. Food was good. You need your own boat for the Marina, I was unable to find where you could rent one for a couple hours. Other places in town have Kayaks that you can rent and they take it to Kirkwood Marina, but I didn't see any that the resort offers for rentals.

The Kirkwood Resort and Marina is 18 miles outside of West Yellowstone, which is a bit of a drive after a long day in the park. The cabins were nice but a bit basic. There is no air conditioning and the TV is very small and has tinfoil rabbit ears for reception (about 3 channels). It has a small shower and somehow I never managed to get the shower curtain to seal and always had water all over the bathroom. The beds were okay. We slept with the windows open and people in the other cabins were noisy. The cabins are set up in a duplex style so you have one shared wall but we never heard our neighbor through the wall. They did have a laundry facility on site but it has one washer and one dryer so we ended up spending an entire evening waiting for someone to dry their laundry ahead of us.
