Made contact by phone as the price on the internet suited our budget.We were glad we did pre book as this town fills up being so close to the park.This town is quite expensive but then they have a captive audience.
Good basic motel with friendly proprietor.Room had all we needed.Bed was comfortable.
No breakfast available so either eat downtown or go with supplies.

This was a horrible mistake for our family. If you have little kids do not stay here. The carpets are filthy the floors in the kitchenettes were beyond sticky. Parking is horrible we were sure that part of the hotel was going to fall down due to the roof. We had to park over stumps and the owners were not at all friendly nor helpful. The rooms were so small and dingey we couldn'y leave the air conditioner on because the curtains covered it in the window. The bathroom was horrid besides being Small it was all musty and gross. It really is a fixer upper hotel. Just Please Do Not Spend Over $100.00 For A Room That is Not Fit For Anyone to stay in. Just because it has the condos doesn't mean anything the overall look of the place from the outside says it all. Don't be fooled by the pictures on the internet they are not at all what it REALLY looks like. We got fooled and regret it all the way. So be careful and stay somewhere else. The KOA is only down the road and even the cabins there are cleaner and nicer than this "great" motel. DON"T Do IT!!!

My family and I (8 adults & 1 child) had the pleasure of staying in one of the new condos available at the Pine Shadows Motel.

The condo was VERY clean, with 2 full bathrooms, TV, wireless internet...etc. The motel is only a few blocks to the downtown area...an easy walk...and only about 1/2 mile to the west entrance of Yellowstone.

The accomodations were perfect for our needs...a full kitchen that allowed us to prepare picnic lunches to take into Yellowstone (a great money saver), and to cook a hot meal at the end of the long days we spent in the park.

An on-site laundry was clean and convenient. New owners Chad and Mallory we very accomodating to any needs or requests we had.

Though we were there in August, they also offer winter accomodations for snowmobile tours/trip.

An overall GREAT stay!

We stayed there for about 4 nights. The motel has just switched owner to a young couple from Minesota. The motel room is clean and neat. The owners are very freindly. Chad, the owner, even let us use his computer to save our photo to our memory chip from camera. Mrs. Chad is very friendly as well. When we asked about how to heat up the food we bought, she gave us the paper plates.

We liked our stay there!

We had booked the motel for 3 consequtive nights & paid more than what other motels were charging since it looked new. However ther were series of reasons of dissatisfaction

1.Our towels were wet & we requested fresh towels at the reception & we were REFUSED by the manager.

2. In name of continental breakfast all that was there was donuts & coffee.

3. We had 2 kids & 2 elderly with us we were reaching the site a little early every one was exhausted & we requested the manager to let us in 1/2 an hour before check in time & he REFUSED saying that he has no control over when his earlier guests would leave & he we can only check in after 1:30 pm.
On the contrary when we were about the leave we gave a heads up to the manager requesting an additional 1/2 an hour to wind up & he REFUSED again saying rudely that we should try & run the place instead.

4.The Motel doesnt seem to have enough staff (it seems just one maid & a manager) to carry out simple things like giving extra towels & manager cant be accomodating & respectful to the requests of his guests who are on vacations & wish to relax rather than run around hastening up getting ready to get out- it was almost like being kicked out of the motel. Very improper behaviour from the manager.

The "condos" are actually duplex cabins, very large and comfortable. Don't be discouraged by the older appearance of the motel. The condos are new. Perfect for 2 families. Nothing in the area appeared to compare. Only 2 drawbacks: continental breakfast was just donuts (not a problem since the condo has a full kitchen) and the neighborhood is more urban -- you're definitely not in the woods, but then neither are any other accomodations in West Yellowstone.

Even though the Motel does not look good, the 2bdr. Condo is excellent. Service is excellent and the Condo is spot less. It still looks like new. I would recommend this for anyone who likes a clean, quite place for reasonable rate.
