Eschew glamor and enjoy the real America by staying in a trailer park next to a junk yard. The Holiday Motel's surroundings are awful, it is even next door to a crazy barking dog-on-a-chain and bearded yokels loading up their gun rack at night. Yet its location is at the same time brilliant, being in West Yellowstone.
And here's the rub. Because local hotel owners confuse West Yellowstone with the French Riviera, they think they can charge more per night than the US national debt. Not the Holiday Motel, it knows it overlooks an eyesore and has to keep the prices reasonable ($100 per night compared to $200+ for rooms only two blocks away).
And the best part is the rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable ... albeit a little dingy with only one small window, though as I've mentioned, in some ways that's a blessing. The owners are nice too.
So if you want to visit Yellowstone without being royally ripped off, stay at Holiday Motel. Just close your eyes when you arrive.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in the 1950's, the Holiday Motel retains the charm of a different era. Rooms are small but the bathrooms are large. The walls are tongue in groove wood and parking is directly outside your door! We are currently working on a total remodel of the property and this takes time but the rooms that are completed are lovely! We are off the beaten path but it is quiet. The best breakfast place in town, The Running Bear Pancake House, is just across the street and each room has microwave, fridge and in room coffee. ... more less
