We stayed here for 4 nights while renting snowmobiles from Two Top Snowmobiles. It was your normal average hotel...nothing fancy, but very clean. All the rooms have been updated and it has restaurants and shops nearby. We went to the Slippery Otter the first night, but preferred eating at Bullwinkle's after eating there the second night. The morning breakfast had...

Reviewed 1 November 2016

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...

Good hotel, nice rooms, good breakfast with lots of choices for the family. Overall excellent value. The only challenge was parking with a big truck and trailer which can be a problem anywhere in town with all the snow piles.

This was part of the Two Top Snowmobiling package. Everything was arranged. The hotel is quite nice. The breakfast was not the standard complementary one. It was a complete breakfast. If you could not find something to eat, you are way too picky. It was great for starting the day snowmobiling.

We stay here the night before heading in to Yellowstone park. During this time of year the only way to go into the park is by snow coach or snowmobile . Since we were staying in the park a few nights , snow coach was our route. This was a typical bestwestern , nothing special. The rooms were clean ....

I stayed here one night after staying at the Best Western Mammoth in Gardiner. This Best Western blows the doors off the Mammoth/Gardiner one. Fifty bucks less a night. Nice clean and modern room. And a great breakfast with, eggs, bacon, sausage, the works. All fresh and nicely displayed. Also a nice selection of fruit and packaged items. They could...

3 couples stayed for 6 days and had great service. Also, the food at the breakfast was great. Parking for snowmobiles was good as well. It is conveniently located to everything in town. We would highly recommend for families and couples.

We brought 26 people here through Two Top Snowmobile rentals (package deal). Rooms were clean and staff was nice until some of us gathered together in their lobby. which seemed inviting, sofa's etc. We were told we were too loud to please move. Of course we moved into the eating area. Then we were asked to leave all together. "we...

We enjoy having groups at our hotel and host numerous groups throughout the year. As guests using a public lobby in a hotel, you must be thoughtful of the other guests of the hotel. There are guest rooms directly above the lobby area and the breakfast room and these guests must not be disturbed. This party with such a large...

For a non luxury hotel this place does things right. Nice décor, clean rooms, updated, good breakfast, I really liked it. Have stayed in W.Y. several times first time here. The breakfast was decent, enough to get you going but not anything to write home about. The pool is a bit plain in décor, the hot tub didn't work so...

Great little hotel and perfect for our needs. Clean rooms, comfy beds and a rather nice hot breakfast. Inviting feel in the lobby area. Staff could be a little more pleasant but they certainly did not ruin our vacation!
