“Convenient location, Super Clean”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

My wife, son and I stayed at One Horse for two evenings and spent most of the days in Yellowstone. Warm Montana hospitality from the owners when we checked. The motel is very small so recognize that the rooms are equally small and have been there seemingly for a very long time; however, the rooms are incredibly clean, well maintained, and you can tell cared for. Bed was sufficient (king), the rooms are strictly non-smoking, and the shower head is plenty high. The room has been retrofitted with A/C. If you have rowdy kids, you may feel as if you're being a bit loud as the walls are somewhat thin bit didn't seem to bother us as it was an older adult crowd (few retired bikers and wives, mostly families). No breakfast, so I'd recommend heading to the woodside bakery (amazing) or Ernie's deli (okay, good egg sandwiches). Everything in town is within few blocks walking distance and you're less than 5 minutes drive to Yellowstone's west gate.

Room Tip: No one seems better than the next

Spent one night in the One Horse Motel. Clean, neat, but very small. All we needed was a quiet place to sleep and to shower and clean up. They provided it. No problems whatsoever.

Room Tip: Nothing really to ask for.

Nice small motel with the basics. YOu won't need much at Yellow sTone as you will be touring a lot. The motel was small and very clean with walls of different colors. It was very queit as well.
A good price as well.

Room Tip: Just park your car quickly as it is hard to park by your room.

The folks at One Horse are nice. It's a small motel with just the basics. The room was spotless. The towels were thick and nice. Didn't get a chance to try the coffee and donuts.

Skip the Madison Crossing restaurant (unrelated to the One Horse, but everyone recommends it for some reason.)

Room Tip: For more space, get the room with 3 beds. One person even gets some privacy.

Have been staying at the One Horse motel for the last 15 years or so, and so when I called to make my reservations again, was concerned that the owners that I had come to know over that time had sold and there were new ones. But right away I felt good. After learning we had been there before, was very well received. Had room and rates similar to what we have had before. though a bit pricey, for West Yellowstone, a good deal. The staff were great, the rooms were very clean and the place was very well kept up, as I had come to expect under the previous owner.
Rooms are a bit small, but were adequate for our needs, and the beds are very comfortable. Location is superb for access to the park and to reach places in town as well. Will stay here again and look forward to returning, hopefully next year!

We stayed at this motel and we were pleased with the friendly staff and very clean rooms. The lolcation is fabulous directly across the street from a beautifull park where we had a nice picnic. The rates we low and the value was great. I reccomend this to everyone.

Good location from which to explore Yellowstone. The accommodation is clean and well maintained. I found Nick’s recommendations of what to see and do in Yellowstone very useful. He even lent me some raingear when he heard that I was ill prepared. Becky went out of her way to assist me with the delivery of some internet purchases.
