We've just returned from 2 weeks in Yellowstone and Tetons, and having been here before realized we needed to stay at three sites to minimize driving and maximize time for hikes and wildlife watching. We chose Jackson Lake Lodge for the Tetons, and the Alpine Motel in Cooke City particularly for the Lamar Valley, both of which met our expectations. I was less keen to stay in West Yellowstone as a base to visit that side of YSNP, as we prefer more remote locations to a busy tourist town, but booked the Lazy G based on a recommendation from Dutch friends with similar interests. This motel was even better than we expected, being located on the quiet edge of town, with a warm welcome and extremely comfortable spacious very well maintained accommodation. In fact we thought it was the best motel we'd stayed in ! We made the most of the facilities in West Yellowstone - including the laundry and pancake house around the corner ! But as there was so much wildlife to photograph in the Lamar Valley, including a grizzly mum with 3 cubs feeding on a bison carcass all day, we did end up driving back there twice - 3-4 hr round trip - but it was worth it - so much for planning !
