AmericInn Lodge & Suites Cody - Yellowstone
Ranked #6 of 29 Hotels in Cody
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 20, 2014

With two annual trips to Cody each of the past eleven years, we've stayed at the Americ fifteen or so times. It's our favorite for value and for its large indoor pool and hot tub. The basic, comfortable rooms are always spotless, and the simple, free breakfast -- cereal, toast, muffins, fruit, cold pastry, oatmeal, and batter for make-your-own waffles -- is available early to mid-morning. In late afternoon, the always-helpful front desk serves cookies.

Free, fast wifi in rooms and free computer terminal in lobby.

Cody does not have very large taxi fleet but if you call the hotel from the airport the staff usually has time to send someone to get you in their van.

Even if you don't stay here -- and you should -- stop by to see the staggering collection of animals in the two-storey lobby.

Otherwise, If you insist on paying more, the hip hotel in town is The Chamberlin, the fancy hotel is the Cody, and the old-timey saloon hotel is the Irma.

Wherever you stay, visit the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, a world-class museum of fine art, natural history, Plains Indians, firearms, and the life story of William F Cody.

Apologies this is a bit long, but you will understand why.

As planned, we bought our $80 Eagle Annual Pass and drove 2,000 miles up from Washington DC to discover that we arrived the day after the Federal Government shutdown occurred. Everyone in Yellowstone National Park had already been given 48 hours notice to vacate the park. Our plans to spend 3 days in the park were decimated, even our planned exit through Cokeville to Thayne afterwards, was prevented.

We couldn't have asked for more helpful or apologetic staff. The AmericInn at Cody is a very comfortable place with good quality rooms in a very convenient location.

Best Buy left us without the tablets we had ordered so, WiFi access was useless for us. However, access to the guests PC in the reception area proved to be priceless!

The abandonment of Yellowstone was further fuelled with the forecast that a snow storm was developing so, we arrived at the peak of the mass exodus! To avoid being stranded, we spent until 4am of our 1st night, on the guests PC in the hotel foyer trying to change our route and book new accommodation. For hundreds of miles around, everything was either emptying or full / rapidly filling, with online accommodation prices doubling before your eyes.

Tired and exasperated we succumbed to our clean and warm, comfortable twin Queen bedroom.

Following breakfast we spent several hours feverishly reorganising our route, cancelling reservations and booking our hotel in Rawlins.

The AmericInn staff were very understanding throughout our stay: giving us assistance and advice on what to do and they were very flexible on revising the length of our stay without surcharge.

We awoke on the 3rd October - a few inches of snow had fallen overnight - the forecast - significantly more to come. I got chatting to one of the few guests still in the hotel at breakfast, he suggested we avoid Casper, as snow blocked Routes 20/26 & 487.

We left just after 8am on a relatively straight 262 mile / 4.5 hour trip. Driving cautiously on ice covered roads, we made steady progress via Meeteetse, arriving just over half distance in Riverton. We stopped briefly for a burger lunch, only to discover our proposed route 287/789 was closed. It was just before noon, a major 'dogleg' now took us via Rock Springs. Instead of the original 2 hours / 123 miles to go, we now faced a further 4 hours and 247 miles. Our luck and déjà vous made us laugh, on a couple of occasions when following a snow plough as it fought to keep treacherous roads open. Barely a minute behind an overturned lorry on the I80, we avoided the tail-back and finally arrived at our destination just before 7pm, a mere 10.5 hours after our departure. We were delighted though, that night a further 9 inches of snow fell in Yellowstone and 24 inches fell in Rapid City - we narrowly avoided getting stranded in between, at Cody!

The only negative thing about the AmericInn: we had no alternative, but to decrease our stay from 4 to 2 nights because Yellowstone Park was closed - a real shame as this is an ideal base... but we will return!

Cody is a very friendly place and being a reasonable sized town, good amenities are available.

Staff at the AmericInn even recommended us to the Rib and Chop House on Sheridan Avenue, we had a great evening and one of the best steaks ever, served by the lovely Lisa.

We feel we got a good deal cost wise for this motel. I used Book.com and got a reduced rate at the last minute. It is located in a good location to visit Cody, Wy.; close to many restaurants, downtown and very close to the park entrance. They had a nice breakfast with a choice of waffles, cereal, eggs, yougert, fruit, muffins etc. The rooms were very nice and it was quiet for sleeping; we would stay there again. MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE MUSEUM, TAKE THE TROLLEY TOUR GUIDE AND VISIT THE OLDEST BAR IN WY.FOR A GOOD LUNCH. THE SUN DOWN SHOOT OUT WAS FUN AS WAS GREAT STORES FOR SHOPPING.

We stayed at this hotel one night while touring in Cody. Our original plan was to be in Yellowstone and Grand Teton but the government shutdown cancelled that. We walked in without reservation and asked for the "best rate" and offered up our AAA, AARP, Senior and government IDs. They offered us roughly $100/night + tax which included a continental breakfast, "complimentary" cookies and hot drinks. The staff was terrific, courteous, and outgoing. We were given a first floor room that was absolutely spotless and well-equipped. In the morning we enjoyed the breakfast, it was not fancy, but it was hot and ample. They actually provide real plates, cups, glasses and utensils; not the usual Styrofoam and plastic. Again the front desk person was cheerful and friendly. We awoke to 5-7 inches of fresh snow and a bitter wind. The staff was out clearing walkways by 7ish. When they saw me struggling to clear my car by hand (boo to Hertz for not including a scraper/brush); they went and got a broom and scraper and cleared it for me. That is service above and beyond!!! I had never used this chain before but will seek them out in the future to see how other properties compare. PS ---The nearby newer Best Western wanted $200 +tax... in the off-season with an empty parking lot!

Room Tip: First floor or use the steps.

The hotel is just outside to the west of the centre of town. Nearby is a Walmart Superstore

Staff was a bit “un-cheerful” when I arrived. Had to sign a lot of agreements when I registered: about pets, smoking, etc.

The room was a bit dull from what I had expected from other reviews, maybe because of the dark colours and wooden furniture.

There was a small desk,large flatscreen TV and a big bed. The bathroom was nice and clean.

Free Wifi internet worked well with sufficient speed for streaming media.

From time to time there was a unpleasant sound in the room which came from the refrigerator. To get a good nights sleep I just unplugged it .

Breakfast was terrible with very limited choices. Only warm sausages but no scrambled eggs, no waffle machine up and running (it was there but empty), a very limited choice of bread and spreads, etc. For a hotel in this price range you may expect better.

Overall I was disappointed, there are maybe other and cheaper options in town

We planned a last minute visit to a couple Nat. Parks and we used AmericInn as a base for Yellowstone NP. We have stayed here before and always had a very nice clean room. We felt the same this time too. It's an hour drive to the East Entrance to Yellowstone but again, we didn't plan far in advance. I appreciate the use of plates and silverware at breakfast but felt the food was lacking. Hot items were biscuits and gravy and the usual do it yourself waffle. They only put out so much cut fruit and by 8:30 it was all gone and they serve until 10.
The staff was very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: We prefered facing the parking lot. You face a clinic on the other side.

Very clean! This was by far not what I expected. We stayed only for one night. We arrived late and left early. They have warm cookies at night and coffee and tea all day and night. Bedding was comfy but pillows were standard on the king size bed. There was a visitor at the lodge that required secret service. We were told where he and she were staying ( I mean room too). Unless you want someone to know your business I would suggest keeping it quite and to yourself.
