Staff was friendly, rooms were clean and beautiful! Newly renovated and adorable! Would definitely stay here again! Breakfast was packed with travelers but no shortage of food for my boys and I! The owners obviously take pride in their motel and it shows!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I think many people believe that owners/managers aren't really the ones reading these reviews but we are! While it's important for us to pay attention to all reviews, it's so nice to read the ones that tell us we are doing well. We are a family owned property so we do hope... More

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay here. Friendly staff and great maid service. Room was spacious & bathroom recently updated. Very clean. The included breakfast buffet was better than expected. Eggs, sausage, bacon, home fries, fruit, cereal, etc. enabled us to fill ourselves up before trekking to Yellowstone. This motel is located literally 5 minutes from... More

This hotel has been recently renovated, and is clean and appealing. The location is very close to the West entrance of Yellowstone, which is very convenient for those wanting to explore the park. I specifically picked this hotel because they are dog friendly. However, they do not allow the dogs to be in the room unattended. While this makes dinner... More

Thank you for reviewing us! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. While I understand the inconvenience in not allowing pets to remain unattended there are many reasons why we have this policy.

Great location five minutes from West entrance of Yellowstone Park. Good sized rooms with everthing a traveller needs. Breakfast choice good including hot items but room too small for size of property. WFfi hopelessly slow. Motel has contract with Japenese tour operator by the bus-load and these guests dominate later and early in the day. West Yellowstone is a little... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yellowstone National Park is the first National Park in the world and for very good reason has been a top tourist destination since its opening in 1872. It's a WONDERLAND and the Crosswinds Inn is located right next to it. We are just 3 blocks from the West entrance which is the most popular way to enter the Park. This makes us the perfect base for you to see the parks many amazing geysers, grizzly bears, wolves, bison, elk and of course, Old Faithful, the most popular geyser on Earth! The Crosswinds Inn has 70 rooms that have ALL been completely renovated. We are a 100% non-smoking facility and we offer free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi. We also allow pets in our designated pet rooms. All pets must be registered at time of check-in and we do charge a $20 one time pet cleaning fee. After a day spent amid natural wonders, relax in our heated indoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
