We explored Yellowstone Park during the off season. This hotel was quiet, well maintained and comfortable. Breakfast was included w/ a buffet with more than the normal hot and cold breakfast items. Seating was usually full and close together. Close walking distance to places to eat. Location just outside of the park so if can't stay in the park, this...

The staff at this property was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were also very good for this town. I would not, however, go for the breakfast! Other than apples, there were no fresh, whole or healthy choices. I am not a fan of prefab omelettes!

I stayed for 4 nights while exploring Yellowstone NP and found this hotel a great choice. West Yellowstone is right next door to the park entrance and there is a park information centre at the entrance so location wise it is perfect. The hotel is very friendly, clean and offers great breakfast selection. I found the room to be very...

This is one of the few hotels that remains open during the off season. It was nice, well maintained, and comfortable. The pool was well kept and the hot tub was a welcome amenity after hiking all day.

Hotel is very clean and staff was very friendly. Our room had two queen beds, microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. The hotel is walking distance to a number of restaurants on the Main Street of town. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would stay there again. Even though we were there in the "off season," the hotel...

Our room was very close to elevator, pool and breakfast area, but we still felt like it was quiet enough to be comfortable. The breakfast area was so clean and there were many choices. The desk clerk gave very good restaurant suggestions along with a map. We were able to walk to most of the restaurants. The room was clean...

I have found that Best Western motels in the west are always so much better than the ones back east. This motel did not disappoint us. Very clean, nicely furnished, good breakfast and friendly personnel. After touring the park during the day we would go back to town where we had multiple choices for dinner and shopping all within walking...

If you want to be close to the west entrance of Yellowstone, this is the place to stay. It's less than a mile to the entrance. The staff is friendly, the beds are comfortable, the rooms and property are clean and the breakfast is excellent. You are also within walking distance to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, grocery store...

This hotel lived up to everything promised, plus they were able to give us a last minute reservation while traveling with our dog! Great location, just outside the West Entrance to Yellowstone! Wished they would have served a breakfast, but no big deal. Went to McDonalds for a quick bite!
