“Great value for location.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We got a good deal when booking this property compared to other hotels in this gateway town to Yellowstone NP and was not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was quite small but clean and comfortable and well furnished and felt as though it had the personal touch that you don't always get from chain Hotels. Friendly staff, good value and within easy walking distance to town, plus a good location for Yellowstone NP, makes this an all round good choice that I would use again. If you are looking for full amenities then don't bother, if you want a good value, clean and comfortable room for a good nights sleep before or after a day in Yellowstone, then this is ideal.

This inn has a selection of rooms from cabins, family cabins and queen beds. I stayed in a second floor queen double with a rustic look and patch quilts. room was clean if a little snug. You get what you pay for in this part of the world. Bathroom was very small and only had a shower Yet it had everything we needed fridge microwave and coffee maker additional coffee was available in reception anytime. Stayed three nights at west Yellowstone and enjoyed our visit very much. Location was great only five minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone. be aware if you are traveling from the east to west Yellowstone passage through the park will take two and a half hours. without many stops. would maybe go for a cabin next time we visit.

Room Tip: high floor, or if you lick more room go for a cabin. You will need to book well in advance the inn i...

This cabin was so much more than we expected! It's decorated beautifully, and had more than indicated from its website (for example, there's a washer and dryer off the kitchen). Plus, there were tons of dishes (not just the 8 that the maximum occupancy would indicate), so we could hold off on washing them until the dishwasher was full.

It was wonderful to view Yellowstone by day and then come back to a place that felt so welcoming...We had 6 people in the cabin (8 is the limit)—2 from MA, 3 from CO, and 1 from NY —and had such a great time sitting around the kitchen table (which could seat 8) playing games and just visiting. I'd come here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Don't expect anything outside the cabin—it's a parking lot. But the cabin itself is wonderfu...

Staff was friendly and room had a highly interesting rustic look. Compared to other hotels this one had good value. Large selection of free coffee types throughout the day. Street address is confusing, but when coming from Yellowstone it is on the left side of the main street.

Room Tip: A location in the back is more quiet, then one facing the street.

We had to pay in full before we saw our room, and the people on the front desk did not seem at all professional, knowledgable or interested apart from getting payment. Room was very small, with no shelves or cupboards, and we lived out of our suitcases for the two days we were here. Bathroom was tiny, but there was sufficient hot water, which was something. WiFi was painfully slow, although it was free. Beds were comfortable enough, and we were warm.

Pretty basic, but all the accommodation in West Yellowstone appeared to be equally down market. This surprised me taking into account the numbers of visitors to the area.

Room Tip: Find somewhere else to stay!

Dear Guest: Thank you for staying at Moose Creek Inn. As a family owned property, we strive daily to make our guests feel welcome and ensure our rooms are very clean and comfortable. The pricing structure is approximately one half that of a chain hotel and as such we do not offer all of the amenities a larger chain hotel may offer. The front desk staff will answers questions to the best of their knowledge and have been trained to always assist guests with luggage or any other request a guest may have. We hope you had a safe trip home and that you enjoyed Yellowstone National Park.
