The rooms were clean and the bathroom a bit worn but clean. Loved that it had a fridge & microwave. The wifi didn't work and the "breakfast" was coffee, fruit, and somethings wrapped that were on the level of a chemical honey bun.
Owners were super friendly. I thought it was a bit expensive for what you got.

Room Tip: The Hotel is on a busy road so ask for a room near the back.

I stopped here on my way from Iowa to Yellowstone. I found that this was an excellent place to stay for the price. the owners gave recommendations on places to eat and also were able to give me advice on the road going west over the mountains. I had stayed in a chain hotel the night before for more money and liked this one much better. If I go through Buffalo this fall on my way back to Iowa, will be staying there again.

We stayed one night. The room was clean and spacious. Pool was amazing and had fresh towels!! The room had a refrigerator and that was very nice because we were traveling with lunchmeat, mayonaise and cheese to make sandwiches on the road.
At night, it was quiet and we slept well. There isn't much to do in this area and restaurants are limited. We were there on a Sunday though and a lot was closed. The local Pizza Hut was crowded and service was very poor. Otherwise, for one night, it's a great place and the onwers are amazing!

This is an independent motel with on-site owner/managers, one story with parking at your door, just the kind of place I try to give the benefit of the doubt. There's even a dog-walking area marked on a narrow strip of grass behind the building. Still there were just too many negatives to outweigh the good things that the Wyo offers.

We had booked for a summer weekend at a good rate for that place & time. The owners were friendly and efficient, and very personable. We were handed an old-fashioned metal key, a sign offered to sell us a bag of ice for $2, and after I prompted him the owner told me that breakfast consisted of donuts that are put out after 9:00am (on a Sunday)! "We'd rather that our guests save a few bucks and go out for a good breakfast." I'd rather that they were more upfront about it and just say they don't serve breakfast. Post a couple menus for local places and leave it at that.

The room A/C was efficient, but every time we opened the door a cloud of cigarette smoke blew in, and we had to run through that cloud to get from the room to the car and back, morning and night. Between the other guests and the owners I felt like the only non-smoker on the property. Surfaces in the room were dusty and the carpet was very dirty, but the bathroom was a gem: very clean, great water pressure, and a showerhead so high some adults might not be able to reach it! The mattress was acceptable but at the end of its lifespan. The curtains did not adequately block light from the parking lot or rising sun.

After loading the car among the morning smokers and a blindingly white beer belly out for the first time of the summer we dropped our key and went looking for breakfast, anticipating better experiences down the road.

We saw this on trip advisor and decided to book a night on the way from Yellowstone to Custer, SD. Robin was awesom and she was so nice to our kids, room was soooooo clean and pool was excellent! We will definitely stay here again if ever in the area. Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We needed a motel last minute so we reserved this one. Ended up not getting there until 11 p.m. The people in the office weren't there but they left a note on the door telling us that our room was unlocked and to have a good stay. After a long and unexpected drive, it was very much appreciated. I would definitely stay there again.

we at this motel on our way to Yellowstone it was "GREAT" clean, and the owners were awesome. Very helpful on where to eat and what to see. On our way home we came back and stayed another night I would totally suggest staying here, there were four of us and were able to all stay in one room with plenty of room to get around.....Just a great and friendly place.....
