We had not planned on staying in West Yellowstone but spent longer in the Park than anticipated and thus were in need of a room for the night. We were delighted to have stayed at the Kelly Inn. Our room was spotless, the beds extremely comfortable, and the decor only enhanced our enjoyment. The staff was extremely helpful. We even enjoyed the other guests we met there. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a very nice motel in a good location just across from the IMAX and Grizzly and Wolf Center. The room was very clean and was nicely decorated with lodge-style decor and comfortable beds. First floor rooms have both an outside and inside-corridor door, which we found very convenient. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. The laundry room was clean and easy to use. This is our third stay in West Yellowstone and we finally found our favorite motel for this town.

We're glad to hear that you finally found us. Our brand name is not as well known nationally as some of the larger franchises but our guests that take the time to submit TripAdvisor reviews have made us one of the most popular hotels in the Yellowstone area. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed staying with us and that we will be your favorite hotel here from now on. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us and with all of those future visitors to Yellowstone who are still not familiar with us.

We (my spouse, dog and myself) stay at the West Yellowstone Kelly Inn twice a year. In our *fifteen year history* of those stays we have never been disappointed. The rooms are large, comfortable, clean and quiet. Within five minutes of the west entrance to Yellowstone NP, the hotel is also within easy walking distance of many shops and restaurants and a five minute drive from virtually everything in town. Perhaps most important, the management team and everyone at the desk is courteous and friendly and work hard to accommodate special requests both during the reservation process and after arrival. These folks are great!

And so are the king size beds!! :)

Room Tip: A note for those traveling with dogs: This hotel is pet friendly and so are the first floor rooms...

You just made our day! This past month has been a real challenge to keep up our standards while deconstructing to hopefully reconstruct and end up much improved in the end. Our greatest concern has been taking care of our guests during this process and how our returning guests would react to the finished product. You just made it all worth while. Thank you.

We always stay at the Kelly Inn. Never have had a bad stay, rooms are clean, staff is friendly and they just remodeled the breakfast area, its a lot bigger and offers more. This is a great place come after a long day in the park. We also travel with our dog and they always give us a room with easy access outside. Thanks for another great stay

Thanks for the nice comments. You know how much we value the opinions of our returning guests so it really makes all of the hard work and frustration of a remodel worth it when our frequent guests recognize our continued effort to make improvements. We hope to be even better on your next visit.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The staff was amazing and the hotel rooms were absolutely spotless. The pool area was pretty large and very clean. The breakfast area was run by a lady named Mary Lou. She was so friendly, taking time to talk to and help everyone. The hotel is very close to Yellowstone's entrance and downtown. We will choose this hotel again because of the friendly staff and clean rooms.

Room Tip: Always read reviews from other people that have recently stayed at the hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your recent stay. Although we apppreciate your comments, Mary Lou actually manages the breakfast at our sister hotel, the Yellowstone West Gate Hotel,and she does a great job there. We're not sure if you met her over here or sinply confused the two hotels on TripAdvisor but we are glad to hear when anyone enjoys their stay at any of our three hotels in West Yellowstone. Thanks for giving Mary Lou the recognition that she deserves.

I had read several reviews before reserving a room here so I knew they were finishing up a remodel to their lobby, pool, breakfast area. I was pleasantly surprised at the very small bit of inconvenience this caused. The location is extremely convenient, very close to the entrance to Yellowstone NP and to downtown. It is within walking distance to all restaurants in town. The outside of the facility looked new and attractive. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, helpful, knowledgable and accommodating. The entire facility was super clean. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. MIT appeared to have all new rustic "bear lodge" type furnishings and decorations. Very pleasant to be in! The bed was very comfortable. It had a nice sized flat screen TV and plenty of electric plugs although it would have been nice if more of them were at desk level. We stayed 3 nights and our room was always cleaned and restocked when we returned from our days adventures in the park. It was an overall great experience. I would definitely recommend this place and will definitely stay here again when we return. I understand the remodel in the lobby breakfast area will be complete in the next couple of weeks, making the breakfast experience even better.

Thanks for choosing to stay with us. Unfortunately you arrived just prior to the completion of the new breafast bar that our remodel was designed to create. We apologize for the temporary restrictive space we had to serve breakfast in during the project. Although we are not totally finished with furnishings, we started serving our expanded breakfast around our new 20 foot two sided breakfast serving counter last weekend. Based on the comments we are receiving our guests have really appreciated this latest improvement. We hope you will have the opportunity to return some day and enjoy the beautiful new space.
