“Great Stay”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

They had a government rate that was a huge savings. It was clean and had huge rooms. Laundry on site was nice after a long day in the park. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was perfect for an "included" hot/continental perk.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your stay with us in Sept. That is our favorite time of year and the month that we always recommend to friends and family. Even our regular Sept rates are always a substantial savings over the peak July-August time frame, the weather is always great that time of year and the traffic in the park is diminished which cuts down the time it takes to get around and to find a parking space. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return and visit us again.

This is a wonderful place to stay in W. Yellowstone. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rate is very reasonable. The breakfast bar had about everything you could imagine. They are open all winter, so it would be perfect if you're planning a trip in Yellowstone Park this winter. The room was perfect, with all the amenities. Well worth your money.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor does not allow pets or smoking. Therefore, if you have allergies, choose the 3rd floo...

Thanks for choosing to stay with us and for letting us know that you enjoyed our hotel. As a neighbor from Bozeman we realize that you can easily make the round trip to vist the park during the pricey peak season but now that you know our hotel we hope that you will visit us again in the winter to do some snowmobiling when you can stay and enjoy our sauna, pool and hot tub afterwards and skip those snow covered canyon roads at night. Give us a call and we can help set you up with a snowmobile rental or a snow coach ride.

It was our second visit in this hotel. One time 1995 and second one 2012.
This hotel was the best hotel on our trip.
No special comments are necessary. No doubt to book this hotel.
We are from Europe / Austria and we have made the reservation via Internet
and we were happy that the booking was done as we have it planned. The area is very nice
and the style of the hotel with the bears are funny. Our children were surprised.

Thank you for submitting a review of our hotel and for choosing to stay with us twice after traveling all the way from Austria. We are always surprised and delighted that so many visitors from outside this country know so much about our national parks and choose to visit Yellowstone. We are happy that you came to visit us and hope that you will make a third visit and will choose to stay with us again.

We stayed here for one night and would have stayed for another but the hotel was fully booked. The rustic appearance of the outside of the hotel is repeated in the rooms. We had a room on the ground floor which was accessible from both the street and through the hotel. This made it very convenient to get our luggage into the room. The room was a good size with two large comfortable beds. Coffee making facilities were very useful. The hotel is restricted with what it can offer for breakfast but there was enough choice to meet our needs and enough to go round. The staff were very friendly and I would certainly stay again. Of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip this was the most expensive.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor at the front have access to the carpark.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to submit a review of your stay in Sept. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay but sorry that we could not extend your stay beyond your reservation since we were sold out. As you stated, hotels in the Yellowstone area are generally more expensive in peak season than hotels in most areas of the country because the extraordinary demand far exceeds the very limited supply of available rooms. Most hotels here are sold out well in advance from May through September every year and some years that has extended into mid October. Since Yellowstone covers 2 million acres with hundreds of miles of roads to cover just to visit the main attractions, we always recommend that potential visitors make their reservations for a minimum for three nights and just check out earlier if they are lucky enough to see everything that interests them in less time. We never charge a fee for early check outs as long as we are notified the day before since we have so many folks wanting to extend theiur stays. We hope that you will have an opportunity to make a return visit when you can plan to stay longer and will choose to stay with us again.

Great location: a couple blocks from park entrance, restaurants, stores. Friendly and helpful staff. Cute décor: wooden bears climbing up outside of hotel, hunting-lodge style breakfast area, rustic yet modern furniture in rooms with moose and bear on upholstery and floor tiles. Wonderful, comfy mattresses. Copious hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, pancakes, pastries, fruit, yogurt, etc. Nice warm heated indoor pool and large hot tub. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate always available. Highly recommend!

Thank you for the nice review. You came a long way to Visit Yellowstone at a very unusual time in our political history. Thankfully, it sounds like you missed the unfortunate government shut down and were able to visit the park before they shut down with no warning. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed our hotel so much and hope that you will come back and visit us again some day.

Wow this was the perfect ending to a long and beautiful day. It was 10:00pm when we drove out of the park to West Yellowstone. So happy we had reservation, check in easy,with friendly staff. Had an “Oh Wow” moment when we walked in the room. I loved the rustic furniture, and warm feeling of the room. But the bed was awesome. I can’t describe how comfortable the bed & pillows were,but I felt like royalty. Breakfast was very good. Pricey,yes. Worth it, absolutely.

We have been staying in West Yellowstone every October for the past 20 years...and the Kelly Inn is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The rooms are extremely quiet and comfortable with plenty of room for our fishing gear...and the beds were fabulous - never had such a restful sleep on the road. The innkeepers Don and Sally couldn't have been nicer and all the staff extremely helpful...plus a great breakfast each morning. Highly recommend this hotel!
