West Yellowstone's City Center Motel
Ranked #19 of 39 Hotels in West Yellowstone
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This was the best deal we found for Yellowstone. It was so close to the park and everything else. It was roomy for my family we thought it was relatively comfortable, clean and little cute touches that made it charming. There wasn't anything to really complain about. The beds could be a little more comfortable. Also, the ice machine and hot tub weren't working, but they made accommodations like providing bags of ice in the freezer. The kitchen is a nice convenience but we didn't use it like we thought we might. We did bring the kids into there to eat popcorn and watch a movie in the nice lounge area they had. I would stay here again, but it was definitely influenced by the price. The customer service was great though.

It was the end of the season, TripAdvisor's top-rated Alpine Motel had already closed up, and we were vainly searching for a room for two at reasonable cost -- until we got to the City Center.

it's an older place without frills, but with all the basics, including a strong wi-fi signal, a desk with lamp, cable TV, comfortable bed and decent bathroom. And clean.

We were quoted a rate of $75 and negotiated it down to $62, tax-included.

Just 1 room left, so we took it. We were told the room wouldn;t be ready till 4pm,and so we went out and returned at 5pm. room was dirty, sheets had holes, The room had 3 beds,and we had difficulty finding one bed that was clean enough to sleep in. The chairs had white stains on all the seats,and so when we complained the booking in lady came to inspect and gave us towels to put on the chairs so we could sit down, she agreed that the room was dirty and would put in a call for the manager to attend. Well that never happened. The bathroom wall had some suspicious objects stuck to it, and the floor was also heavily stained. We decided to have an extra drink that night to help us sleep, and go as soon as poss. the next morning 6am. The worst hotel we have stayed in the US ever.

We had stayed at the motel four years ago (2008) and it was OK, but this time the service and the rooms were much improved. The people there really care that you have a pleasant stay and everything you need. When we arrived we had just had a minor accident resulting in a broken window on our vehicle, and I was pretty frustrated. The manager went out of his way to help us patch things up, and that helped a lot. We were able to continue our vacation without delay. We got a nice, comfortable room at a very reasonable rate, even at peak season. Everything was clean and in good order. My son said that the soap dispensers in the bathrooms are a stroke of genius. I agree it was nice not having to mess with the usual hotel soaps. They even have a kitchen and living room area where you can make a snack, watch TV, or just relax. This place isn't fancy or full of frills, but for basic lodging on a budget, it suited our needs and then some.

We spent 1 night at the City Center Motel in West Yellowstone over Labor Day weekend. The room was very clean and exactly as promised. The hotel is older, but very well maintained. The location was perfect and the staff was very helpful.

I have been to this motel couple of times. Spent 3 nights. The stay was awesome. For the price at the place it's worth it. Very close to yellowstone park entrance. The people Ted and Christy at the front desk are wonderful. They made our stay comfortable. The kitchen is great. People of different countries visit yellowstone and it's nice to have a kitchen like that to cook our own food. The kitchen has a TV, and comfy sofa's for you to relax which you cook. The prices are not variable based on prime season...that's a plus point. The rooms are neat and clean. I read some of the reviews that it's noisy....but for us it was not so.

Room Tip: I like it lot better than some of the other pricy places. Don't think motel is not good..try th...

We loved staying in City Center Motel in West Yellowstone. The room was pristine clean, and we loved the huge kitchen space that was available with a full stove, microwaves, full refrigerator, tables, utensils and a sitting lounge for watching huge TV.

Christy and Ted checked us in and took care of us royally. They were gracious, supportive and took care of us in all ways. I would book this motel again in a heartbeat! Lovely, lovely experience.

Really clean and cheery. Loved having a bath/shower combo. Individual AC/Heat. Great mattresses.

Room Tip: Call Christy and Ted. They will take care of you @ 800-742-0065
