Yellowstone Motel
Ranked #20 of 24 Hotels in Idaho Falls
Reviewed 14 July 2012

While it is a pretty basic motel, it was cheaper than others in the area, and provided most of what is needed. Staff very helpful/friendly. Besides comfortable bed, had TV, refrig, microwave (you won't get these in Yellowstone for twice the price).

Room Tip: Check the highway coupon magazines for the discount coupon

Another no-frills place, and great after a long days drive. We had a hard time finding the property, and were just about to give up and move on to another town when we spotted it.

Owner was friendly and helpful in pointing out areas where we could find some food, given our late arrival. Possibly was not up on the latest, as she told us one place that was no longer still in operation, but no matter, as she did advise several places to check out.

Beds were solid, and room offered microwave and fridge which was nice. It was clean, and area was ok, though I did worry that my car was not safe parked there. This worry was for nothing though. The area is more industrial than anything else, and not highly trafficked, hence my worry.

I think I would camp in this town if there again, and had we arrived earlier in evening this is what we would have done, but we were pleased to have an okay place to spend the night.

I have just been reminded about this hotel due to a family member travelling to Idaho. My first reaction to him visiting was not to go near this dreadful motel. We spent a very uncomfortable night with our luggage propped against the door. Everything was filthy. The sheets, covers and pillowcases were covered in stains, some of the stains were very fresh. We even found that the shower was too dirty ot shower in. the door had been broken in so many times that there were more patches and lock holes than original door.
We were exhausted and the kids very tired otherwise the car would have been a better idea. There was a Harley meet about 50 miles away and every room under $300 had gone.
Our family remembers this as a unique experience and this night has gone down in family holiday history as the worst night ever.
The surrounding city is a real dive and the Budweiser factory and railroad nearby make it even more of an industrial dump.
