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 is an older hotel but that means you have larger rooms and quietude. We stay here often, and appreciate it for its great value, good beds and downtown location with little traffic noise. The only drawback this year was unexpected long lines at breakfast and not enough seating.

There are restaurants shops Yellowstone NP visitor center just around the corners. Groceries food outdoor gears are very accessible. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Staff are very friendly... we got wonderful advice for spots to visit on our way back to Salt Lake City. Recommend it to travelers coming to Yellowstone from the west.

The morning breakfast had...

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.

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.
