We stayed here after our first full, exhausting day at Yellowstone. I was SO happy they were so close the West Gate...5 minutes or less and you're there. It's like stepping back in time as you drive down the main street to the hotel. There are little western-themed shops all along. Very cute, and fun to just stroll. We checked in around 6 pm, the clerk was friendly and helpful. Our room was on 2nd floor, no elevator, but that was okay. Room was very clean, very spacious. Furnishings were dated, but everything worked. Old TV, but okay. They don't have a pool, but they do have 2 hot tubs. The only weird thing is they are in a basement area....a little creepy, but they looked well maintained. We passed on that experience. We took a walk down the main street to see the sights and get an ice cream. It's a nice area, everything is close and there's a good variety of stores, restaurants and little amusements. All in all, we enjoyed West Yellowstone. Breakfast at the Brandin' Iron is very good. Great assortment of foods, good coffee, wonderful staff. And, I enjoyed the full wall mural they have in the breakfast room depicting an old fashioned "chuck wagon"... so cute. So, overall, a good experience at the Brandin' Iron Inn. Our rate for the one night was $134.10, plus taxes (what the heck is a "bed tax"?), so total came to $148.51. A little steep for one night, but being this close to the West Gate, definitely worth it. I would stay there again if I ever find myself in that area.

Nothing spectacular here. Run of the mill hotel, but was very clean and a great location. You can walk to everything you need from the hotel. The continental breakfast was pretty basic, and very busy when we went at 8:00 am. Staff were courteous.

This hotel was the worst I have stayed in. We wanted to get out right away. One of our family members had argument with manager because their room had blood on pillow, hair in counter sink and bathtub, and dust everywhere. Manager was oblivious to all this and kept asking us "what do you want us to do about it?" It is obvious this hotel is not upkept as I even discovered person's old shoes underneath our bed. Breakfast was crap just cereal and bread with egg that could kill someone. We wanted to get out soon as possible. Tip to others: pay little extra at chain hotel in this area like best western. We should have. Paid $160 for this place! This place scared the hell out of me.

We were pleased with our one night stay here in a first floor room near some stairs. I thought it would be noisy in the morning as motorcycles rev up and go, but it wasn't. I believe the motel has been renovated recently. We had a clean, large room with a king bed. We appreciated the included breakfast since it was the only one on our trip. The location is good relative to the park entrance and being able to walk to shops, restaurants, and the IMAX theater, which we also enjoyed. I got a kick out of their marquee sign saying "Fun staff" - that remains to be seen.

We stayed here for 7 days and our experience was very pleasant. Rooms were very clean and staff was very helpful. One of the staff members, Cathy, was very helpful to arrange our tour to Grand Teaton. She helped us in finding nice hotels. The small issues in the room were fixed immediately. Overall stay was cozy and I look forward to coming back here again.
