“Awesome!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

This hotel was better in person than online. Absolute perfect location to Yellowstone. It is actually better to stay at the West entrance. It's closer to everything u want to see. The room was very clean! The Mattresses looked newer. We had a larger dorm fridge & micro. A table & desk plus 2 sitting chairs. The continental breakfast was superior!! You will not be disappointed! The staff was extra super friendly. I wish we would have thought to leave a tip for them! There is always coffee in the lobby. We went to the indoor pool each night. The hot tub was a great way to relax after driving & walking in the park all day. There is a small park across the street. People would take their dogs for walks. There is 1 washer/dryer. You can walk across the street to a convenience store. And one block more there's a pizza shop that's really good(geyser I think). Plus one of the two grocery stores n town. It is about 2 miles to the Yellowstone West entrance. About 3 miles into the park is a big area for bison! We will definitely return if we visit again! There's not much view anywhere in the hotel, but it was only a place to sleep & eat.

Room Tip: If ur a southerner stay on the first floor. Climbing is not ur friend in altitude.

The staff gave us early check-in and late check-out due to the timing of our shuttle bus from/to Bozeman! That was very helpful! The room was clean and breakfast was good! The location is near Arby's, Geyser's restaurant, and a grocery store! The price was great! The even gave us a ride to the snowmobile rental company. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

This is the most accommodating hotel I have ever enjoyed. They allowed us to check in early and check out late because of shuttle service timing, and drove us to snowmobile rental place, etc. The breakfast bar was very good, and one afternoon we enjoyed hot soup and fresh-baked cookies after a hard day of fun! The hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: We had a handicapped accessible room, and it was perfect.

I've stayed in other places over the years while snowmobiling in Yellowstone, but this place is the best. I love getting into a hot tub after a day of sledding! And the breakfast was great. Because I'm diabetic, I'm very aware of having protein at breakfast and that's not easy to find, but they have it. And everyone in our party enjoyed the cookies they bake daily. The price was a steal as far as I was concerned! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for giving us such a great TripAdvisor review! We are very appreciative of all the feedback we get and it is wonderful to know that we are doing a good job. It's always important to keep assessing our guests needs so that we can meet and hopefully exceed them.

We are planning some renovations over the next year or so and are very excited for our repeat guests to see them and let us know how we did. We hope that you will be one of them! One of the things we hope to expand is our breakfast area. If we are able to do that we will be able to offer even more selection and allow for more space.

We wish you safe travels wherever your adventures take you.

The best was the continental breakfast. Good food with protein (hard to find). Enjoyed the hot tub. Friendly service. Good location. It was a great value. Rooms had easy access. Would come back for sure.

My brother and I stayed here early February to go snowmobiling in Yellowstone. It wasn't the fanciest hotel, but the rooms were nice and clean. The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly for pointing out what there is to do in town.(not much) Another nice touch was the hot chicken noodle soup available throughout the day to help ward off the chill of being at this elevation during winter. I would definitely stay again. A small warning to anyone who's never been to west yellowstone in the winter. They maintain a snow pack on most of the roads/parking lots to allow snowmobiles to get around town. We ended up just walking everywhere. It's not a large town so not a huge deal.

Very refreshing for the staff to give a no-hassle price that matches the online price. Cheap lodging during our off-season trip. Was one of the few hotels that remained open and for good reason. Hotel is older, but the rooms were clean and everything worked. Heater worked better than other places we have visited. Very good breakfast!

Thank you so much for reviewing us! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will come and visit us again!

West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park are beautiful places to visit in all seasons but because there is are so many fewer visitors in the winter we are able to offer very discounted room rates and will gladly match or beat any other motel in town.

Please keep us in mind if you are ever in the area again, we love all our guests but getting to know our repeat guests is our favorite thing to do.

We wish you safe travels always,
