“Cozy room”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We did not book this room in advance and were a little concerned if we would find a room in West in August without a reservation. We lucked into this small hotel based on a quick look of other reviewers. What a nice surprise. The lobby is cute and well appointed. They have carried over the moose theme in a cozy and chic way, not tacky. The room was also well decorated, more like a guest room than a hotel. Clean and comfortable and reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Moose Creek Inn in late August based on their great reviews here. Their proximity to Yellowstone N.P. can't be beat. The room was VERY clean, as other's have noted. Big plus! The room was very small, as others had noted. I can deal with small, but.... there is no storage at all in the room we had! No drawers... ANYWHERE! There are some hangers and a small shelf above the hangers. There is a place to put one suitcase. Anything else you want out will have to be put on the one small table top that the TV sits on. There is a TINY shelf in the bathroom, but that's it! My wife and I literally lived out of our suitcases and 'bathroom bag' for our entire stay. You'd think that in a small room, they'd be considerate enough to give you some place to put things away. BTW, they don't even give you a pen and paper, and there isn't a phone or phone book in the room. Frustrating.

I *HAVE* to mention the shower.... it's BY FAR the smallest shower I've ever seen! I'm a normal size guy... 5'11", 185 lbs, and I couldn't put both of my elbows out (horizontally) at the same time in that teeny tiny shower! See my attached photo. It was a joke, and incredibly hard to properly bathe in.

One nice plus is that they have DirecTv in the rooms with a great channel selection, and their WiFi speed rocks.

We honestly couldn't wait to leave Moose Creek Inn at the end of our trip. It was the most dysfunctional hotel room we've ever experienced.

There was no need for us to spend big $$$ since we only needed the room to sleep on our three night stay in West Yellowstone. No greeting at check-in other than taking our money and warning us about having more people in the room as provided and the penalty for cooking in the room. The room was small but OK for two people and the cost was $140 a night. There was no phone but it did have Wi-Fi. There was no breakfast or pool. We ate breakfast and dinner at the Old Town Cafe every morning and night. For the location and our needs, this was an acceptable choice.

This is not a four star hotel in the sense of being fancy, but the as to recommendation. Not a bad place. Our room near the cabins was very very small, but it was a nice enough room with a Lewis and Clark motif. There was no phone in the room. The price was lower than other places around. We did not hear anything from the adjoining room. There is a stand alone AC which hummed loudly but it was white noise and did not effect us at all. I would recommend this place. If you are looking for lots of amenities it probably will disappoint, but if you want a place to stay at a decent price, you'll be happy enough. HInt: the TV is on an adjustable stand so you can move it so you don't hit your head on it. Also, if you plan on staying more than 3 or 4 days and you are not along, the room size will probably be more annoying. It is within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants. I have seen reviews that the parking is difficult, but we always had a space right in front of the room.

Room Tip: We had a queen bed, but a king bed might make everything seem less small.

This is not a fancy hotel ... From the outside, it does not look promising at all! However, it is clean and close to the park ... those were the two things that were important to us when we selected this location. Our king room had a fridge and microwave, which is nice. The bed was a little soft, and they could definitely use some new pillows. Bathroom and shower are both very small. From what we saw and read of other places in the area, we did feel like it was a good value for the money. There aren't really a lot of choices around this park ... The park hotels are full months in advance, and, having stayed in one of them many years ago, not sure they were any better.

Room Tip: Ground floor room was close to parking. A little noise outside during the early morning and early e...

After a long day of traveling we've arrived at this inn and were very satisfied with it. Location is great, within walking distance from Yellowstone's west entrance. A supermarket is nearby, which was convenient.
The room is very nice, neat and well designed. Its equipped with a microwave, a coffee maker, a refrigerator and Direct tv. In the morning a variety of hot drinjs is offered in the lobby.
Needles to say that there's plenty of parking.
To sum up, very good stay, with a relatively fair price. A place that fits its purpose of serving traveling tourists on their way to/from Yellowstone that gives you a cozy feeling for a few hours.

The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and sufficient for the one nights stay. The bathroom and in particular the shower was a little small, larger people may have some difficulty. The decor is rustic log cabin. The hotel is well located for all restaurants, bars and shopping.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor and would choose this again if we were to return.
