After reading all the glowing reviews, we were dying to try the Alpine Motel. Last summer, we couldn't get in because they are always booked solid. We managed to get a room for the first night of our 2011 Yellowstone trip, and were not disappointed.The room had two queen beds and did not share a wall with any other unit, so was very quiet at night. Cable TV, a small refrigerator, air conditioning, ceiling fan and good WiFi are included. Another reviewer remarked that they had to walk a couple blocks for coffee, but the Alpine's owners provide coffee, tea, cider and cocoa in the lobby, beginning at 7 am, and the lobby is only a few steps from any of the rooms. We got to park right outside our room, which was convenient. The Alpine is walking distance from everything, and the owners were helpful in recommending dining choices that suited our tastes and budgets. They keep a binder of most local menus, and even called one of the restaurants for us to check if they were open, as we arrived quite late in the day. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are small, but the place is sparkling clean, the water pressure good, and two of us were able to enjoy long, hot showers and a good nights' sleep on comfortable beds. For the location, price and hospitality, the Alpine can't be beat - there are plenty of good reasons (the helpfulness and hospitality of owners Brian and Patty being primary among them) why this motel continues to be a front-runner on Tripadvisor reviews.
